Trip Report.
Mumbai-Delhi
Train No.-12951,Mumbai Delhi Rajdhani exp(King of WR)
Date-23.10.2016
Here I book an Uber and start my journey towards Bombay Central to experience my first ride with the KING..Though I have travelled by
...
more...
August Kranti rajdhani thrice,but never had been successful to get a confirmed ticket in the KING..When you get a confirmed ticket in the KING,you know you are in for some thrill..I used to count each and everyday since booking the ticket and finally after waiting for 4 long months the day finally arrived..
Being a Sunday,roads were less crowed and from my residence to the station,it took not more than 20 minutes..As I get down,I can slightly hear the roaring of the generator car..The sound gets more vibrant as you move closer to platform 2,where the KING was to depart..
Station was reasonably empty as no train had arrived nor departed..4.15pm and I started a long walk to B1 which was next to the loco..Just when you pass by the generator car,you get goosebumps..This is going to be one hell of a journey..I reached my coach to find that the window was tinted and not much could be seen outside..Disappointed but not down.!!...The best berth to enjoy a journey is to book a SLB and I had one..Dad had the SU cos he loves to read without any disturbance and mom had the LB..
Soon,we buckled our luggage and I was off to check the loco..16.50 but still no signs of a loco..Then I saw a WAP5/7 with our Indian flag.Within 5 minutes we were attached to the loco and then the customary break check..It was almost time to depart,but wait...I see the deputy being shunted onto platform 1..The deputy king had some rusted exteriors..At sharp 17.06,we departed..
We departed along with the Delhi-Mumbai duronto which had arrived and was off to the yard..Both were at the same speed till we got onto the main line while the other disappeared in the yard..Within no time,we were gaining speed from 30-70kmph...Newspaper and Snacks were served after lower Parel consisting one vegetable sandwich,samosa,mango juice,moong daal,gulab jamun and some wet tissues..Dadar was smashed and other suburban stations weren't spared either..We just slowed down near Andheri but otherwise constantly maintained 70kmph till Borivali reaching at 17.32...Now the coach was packed..Time for some action.
Till Bhayander,we were maintaining 50kmph but then we speeded up as if the loco was fuelled with Red Bull...Vasai,Virar..all were mere spectators as we whizzed past at 130kmph to slow down near Vaitarna,where we had an unscheduled halt of about 20 seconds..Again we were off to do 130..It was dark out and the tinted window didn't do any good..But I managed to check the stations through the adjacent window..We overtook many trains at high speed..Vapi and Valsad were skipped at 115 and 130 respectively..Vegetable soup and breadsticks with butter sachet was served at around 19.30..Finally we slowed down at Surat outer and arrived on pf 1 at 19.57,late by 4 minutes..Departed after 5 minutes ,dinner was served soon but we continued our ripping to slow down at Bharuch outer and skipping it at a sedate 60kmph to again reach 140kmph...Vadodara arrived at around 21.08,early by 10 minutes..So we had a mandatory halt for about 20 minutes now..I got down to find the Surat-Vadodara memu standing beside the KING..I heard a honk and announcement of an arriving train..It was Ahmedabad-Kolhapur exp..We departed at 21.30 and this was a bit weird departure,we used to move at 100 and again slow down to 30..This went on for some 15 minutes..But after that,it was again speed show till Godhra where we slowed down and skipped at 40kmph..Time was 22.38 and most of the passengers we asleep..Ratlam arrived at 00.32...While departing,I saw Nizamuddin-BCT AK raj entering..I had to sleep after the departure..
I woke up only to see a train being overtaken,it was Paschim I guess...Bharatpur was smashed and bed-tea was served at around 6.30....At about 7,we slowly entered Mathura...Thought it was going to be an unscheduled halt but we started speeding up.Kosi kalan,Palwal,Ballabgarh,Faridabad all were skipped at around 70-90kmph..Meanwhile,the same breakfast was served,exception being the cheese sandwich instead of the vegetable one....Never went beyond 90 between Mathura and NDLS....At Okhla,we were given a red for about 10 minutes..,Many locals got down here...Then we were made to crawl all the way till Delhi where we were allotted pf 1...Finally we came to a halt at sharp 8.55am,late by 20 minutes..
