#pathetic_controlling_by_NER I want to share something that I experienced on my recent trip from Lucknow to Barhni .
I was onboard 15010 from GTNR . When I booked the ticket it was 40 waiting in sleeper finally I got RAC .
I thought no matter as it was only a 5 hour journey
Train departed 20 minutes late. Link was GD WDM3B.
Malhour saw two trains waiting for LKO entry
One of them was 12557
Reached BBk in 27 minutes dep in 1 min
Got a good run till BUW stopped at BUW outer signal for 3 minutes after that skipped Chowka Ghat at MPS
Then looped at Ghaghra Ghat
I did not understand why as there was no train ahead and no train behind to overtake it.
I checked 12566 had just crossed BBK and 12558 had just croased Safedabad .
For forty minutes no train overtook us or even crossed us making me think that some accident has happened ahead .
But noooooo.............
After forty minutes MGS WAP4 hauled BSK slowly overtook us at 30 kmph
Then after 10 minutes WDG4 of some unknown shed hauled 12557 came and halted besides us
It departed after 2 minutes and then after 5 minutes we departed
I dont know why a non stop train in its homezone halted at an unscheduled station for an hour for a non homezone train which wasn't anywhere near the train
Finally reached BNY at 05:20
Ran good after departing BLP
Did last 70 km in 66 minutes and best moment was skip of Gainsari at 100 kmph

Please read this and reply
As every time one of my trip reports or stories go un noticed
I am more and more disheartened and discouraged to share them any more

12565 & 12558 are the boss of this section and Gomti doesn't have any ''Aukat'' in front of these two so that was quite obvious.

NER is not great at controlling. Have personally been many time in that section. Back when is was a single line only situations were worse. Once they halted Avadh for 2+ hrs at BBK outers.
