For those who wish save money:
If you want to travel from Coastal Odisha to Howrah for sunday arrivals , and unable to get confirm ticket (or wish to save some money like me) , then just take a unreserved ticket for Howrah and board this train (on saturday night departure from puri). Go to general bogie and alas you will feel as if you are inside a reserved bogie. The coaches are completely empty (whereas shri jagannath express general coaches crowd is very famed). Just board your coach and choose whichever seat you want and go to sleep calmly. Nobody will disturb you as hardly anybody boards. All the crowds are swept away by Shri jagannath express.

a good night's sleep, wake up at 6 am and you will find yourself near Hijli. Pack up and alight the train at KGP. Then board any local (Lots of local are present and your same unreserved ticket till HWH will work) bound to HWH. Preferable wait for the Meedinipur Howrah Local and by 9-9.30 am you will be at HWH. So for total journey taken from Puri to HWH, then you will cover it in exactly in 9hr which is much lesser the time taken by Shri jagannath express (which takes 9hrs 40min). Plus nearly Rs 135 saving without any compromise for leisure.
PS: This trick only works for saturday night (this train) and friday night (VSKP Digha SF runs on Fridays on same slot). And this will not work for any other day. So before planning anything, kindly check out your date & day of journey.

    This is regarding the appointment of Monitors. For TLMs, we require a minimum of 1000 Confirmed TLs. For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

We shall soon be introducing a dedicated app called "Rail Messenger" for both Android and iOS, for all blogging/messaging purposes. The app...

    The following changes are being made: 1. To restore the fun back to PNR Predictions, PNR Predictions will NOT be hidden anymore. PNR Predictions by members can be seen by ALL, before and after Charting. New members often look towards our expert predictors for hints, and we are reinstanting that. . 2. To better...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

    @all: IRI is a PUBLIC information website, like Wikipedia. The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI. A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...

    This is a clarification to all members regarding our Forum Guidelines and the FM Group. SWs are issued for very clear cases of abuse and misbehaviour by a member. . At this time, we have had many members against whom SW is issued claim that: "I am a long-time member of IRI, and have...
