Date of Journey - 03 Dec 2016
From - Pune Junction
To - Solapur Junction
Train No. - 19420 Ahmedabad Chennai Express
- WDP4D KJM Shed
It's a great weekend I was enjoying in Pune and in the night I was planned to travel by 19420. I was traveling to Chandani Chowk by PMPML. In mean while I checked NTES and found that my train running late by 2 hrs. Expected arrival at Pune is 23:15 instead of regular 21:10.
I have taken Kothrud Depot - MaNaPa bus till Shivajinagar and took Lonavala Pune Local for next 3 Km journey.
I reached Pune Station at 23:00. PF1 was occupied by Pune Ernakulam Poorna Express via Miraj. PF2 by Kolhapur Gondia Maharashtra Express. My local came on PF3 and within 5 mins it is departed as Pune Talegaon Local. At 23:15, Kalyan WDM3D hauling LTT Hubali Express came on PF4 and Pune WDP4D hauling Secunderabad Pune Shatabdi came to PF5 bang on time. After that, NZM Pune Holiday Special arrived in PF6 and Chennai Mumbai Express on PF3.
My train 19420 Ahmadabad Chennai Express arrived at 23:45 on PF2 with Amul livery Vadodara WAP5. After a brief hault of 25 mins and loco change from electric to diesel KJM shed WDP4D, departed at 00:10.
As train was running late by 3 hrs, I thought it will take atleast 4-5 hrs or may be more than 6 hrs to give side for on time trains. I kept alarm of 4 AM and started enjoying journey. Train was superb horn with awesome driver running continuously at 108 Kmph. In the whole journey, train was stopped at Bhigwan for Siddheshwar and Washimbe for Latur Mumbai. Skipped Daund, Kurduwadi with great speed.
Surprisingly, reached Solapur at 03:45 AM on PF3 i.e. only 3 hr 35 mins journey. If was slept and waited for 4 AM alarm then surely I went to Wadi.. :D as the concept is late running train is always late.
Awesome journey comes an end here with 1.5 hrs delay covered enroute. Hope you enjoyed this trip report.. :)

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
