Travelled on 26/12/17 from TDD to SC. Couldn't log trip due to issue with RailCal
TDD @ 22.40 after delay between KVR-CU. Reached EE @ 23.12
BZA @ 00.10, 5 Minutes Before Time at PF6 without much waiting at outer
12727 was waiting for starter at PF7 with LGD WAP7 30289 for BZA-SC run. It didn't get it until 00.25..
12967 MAS-JP Bi-Weekly SF arrived on PF10. 17015 BBS-SC Visakha was being announced for PF4.
22203 was being announced for PF6, on which 12737 was standing!
I expected either a delayed starter with 12967 & 22203 OTing us at BZA itself, but it didn't happen
We got our starter at 00.42 with LGD WAP 7 30317 for BZA-SC run.
Crossed paths with another SCR legend 12764 SC-TPTY Padmavathi SF at outer and heard the EOG boom sound of 22203
Reached MLY at 6.30 without any OT at all and after the usual trolling entered PF at 7.05
From BZA-KZJ 12727 & 12737 ran just 10-20 KM apart, but after that 12727 raced ahead as it didn't EMU halts of 12737
Still there was no signs of 22203! 12733 was resting on PF with all doors and windows closed.
I was expecting a delayed run and SC arrival after 7.30 from past experience, as it was a Tuesday.
But to my pleasant surprise it was an impeccable run all the way and reached SC at 7.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...

    This is regarding the appointment of Monitors. For TLMs, we require a minimum of 1000 Confirmed TLs. For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...
