>>A report of my Feb trip to Lucknow from Ahmedabad!<<
I had three tickets in 15635 OKHA - GHY Dwarka Express and all the three were alloted seats in three different coaches, i.e., B1 , B2 & B3.
My PNR link: /blog/post/1649308
The onward journey was very good. It ran mostly before schedule till Tundla and reached LKO just with about an hour
...
more...
delay!
Pics will be posted separately!
.
Now the main story is all about my return journey!!
Earlier, I had my bookings done in 19404 SLN - ADI Express on 24th of feb! /blog/post/1649405
But I had to come as soon as possible!
I had to attend family function in Lucknow on 22nd Feb! So, I decided to leave from their in early morning of 23rd to come back Ahmedabad.
My itinerary was like taking 12203 SHC - ASR Garib Rath Express from LKO to NDLS and then Indigo flight from Delhi to Ahmedabad.
GR reaches Delhi at 14hrs, I made plans to meet my friends their and to take night flight for Ahmedabad. Hence, my flight was at 2035hrs
So I took tatkal in 3A /blog/post/1744959
.
Now the main problem occured!
TRAIN CANCELLED :'(
.
Now I had three more options
1. take flight from Lucknow as well
2. go by bus
3. Gomti Express
.
My cousins were going by Gomti Express... so I took tatkal in Gomti! /blog/post/1745850
.
I had a 4hrs buffer in Delhi according to schedule.
I knew that this train will never reach on time so cancelled my Delhi plans! And thought that Gomti will not get delay by more than 4hrs and it should be reliable!!
But I went wrong! :(
Gomti started late from source itself by 1hrs 15mins
Then it went late at ON and CNB adding more delay which got by 3hrs.
It reached Aligarh at 1600hrs
My tension had began!!! Coz if I miss that flight, then I would stuck their in Delhi as JAT AGITATION was going on!!
GZB at around 1825hrs
When it halted Shivaji Bridge, I was about to cry by thinking "yeh to outer pr ruk gayi.. ab kya hoga!" But thankfully it departed in just 2mins of halt!!
It reached NDLS at 1900hrs.
My check-in closure time was 1950hrs
.
"main kaise airport pahunchna hoon, sirf main khud janta hoon... escalators pr bhi bhaago... train k slow hote hi bass bhagna shuru!"
It took around 40mins for me to reach Terminal 1D from NDLS Station.
I reached the check-in counter at about 2005hrs
And after a small request with the Indigo officials, I successfully checked-in! :D
The TRIP was now on its END.
The stress I got from GOMTI.. I will never forget that!!
And will never ever opt Gomti to travel in this section!! Take flight or bus, but not Gomti!!!
.
Then next part of the story...
My parents 19404 of 24th feb also got cancelled! :/
they opted direct Lucknow to Ahmedabad flight which costed 7.3K per passenger!! But that was clear safe way without any tension!!
.
