It was a hectic jorney. I started from my friend's residence at Bahadurgarh at 1600 Hrs. They told me Bahadurgarh-New Delhi Railway Station Greenline service takes around 90 mins to reach NDLS. But the traffic was absolute crazy. The bus reached NDLS at 1900 Hrs [ It started at 1630 from Bahadurgarh]. Then came the drama of Railway police. They sealed almost every entrance of the station and kept only 2 points open with hell of a queue. After everything, reached platform no 10 at 1925 and found that the train was already placed
It started bang at 1940 hours. I was awake till the train reached Kanpur. it never ran like a DURONTO, rather it was running like an ordinary express
train. Woke up around 0600 hrs this morning only to find that we were reaching Mughalsarai an hour beyond schedule. After MGS, it started running like Duronto upto Gaya. After Gaya again it slowed down and never really picked up till SDAH. Eventually It Reached SDAH at 1445 Hrs, 2 Hours 10 Mins Late
