Date of Journey - 01 Sep 2016
From - Pune Junction
To - Solapur Junction
Train No. - 17222 LTT (Kurla) Kakinada Express
- WDG 3A Kalyan Shed
At 14:15 left office and took PMPML Bus No 115 Hinjewadi - Pune Station and reached Pune Station at 15:15. Display indicator was showing Kakinada has delayed by 30 minutes. Taken my journey ticket from ATVM Machine.
Entered to PF 1, huge of passengers are waiting for Pune Gorakhpur. Pune Indore departed from PF 1 after 10 mins Deccan left from PF 5. I went to PF 2, Koyana came to PF 4 at 15:30 and Udyan on PF 2 at 15:40. Udyan left at 15:55 sharp. As soon as Udyan reached Shivajinagar bridge Koyana departed (As this section is converted from block section to automatic signalling system).
My train arrived Pune at 17:20 on PF 2 and departed at 17:30 i.e. 1 hr delayed. WDG 4 UBL Shed (Ex KJM Shed) hauling Pune Gorakhpur departed at 17:20. Till Daund my train was trailing Gorakhpur Express hence stopped at Loni, Yavat and Patas as line was not clear.
After Patas, train entered into Solapur Division. Both driver as well as Controller goes mad from here (Awesome Controller). From Daund, each and every station WDG 3A is just honking and smoking madly and continuously running at speed of 110 Km/hr. Not a single crossing on this single line section, as other trains are already on loop line for giving side to this late running train.
I was expecting to reach Solapur around 20:30, but surprisingly train reached at 19:50 only. Within 3 hrs 20 mins only. As platform was not available, train was waited at outer for 10 mins and after Shatabdi departs 17222 came to PF 2 of Solapur at 20:00.
I sincerely thanked to driver and Controller of Solapur Division who made me feel of traveling in Shatabdi/Rajdhani type train... _/\_ :)
