JOURNEY FROM SANTRAGACHI TO CHENNAI CENTRAL
Part I: Santragachi to Khurda Road
SANTRAGACHI : ON TIME
KHARAGPUR : 05 MIN. LATE
BALASORE
...
more...
: 10 MIN. LATE
CUTTACK : 15 MIN. LATE
KHURDA ROAD : 10 MIN. LATE
The train usually tries to maintain its schedule but gets delayed on some runs due to heavy traffic.
Part II: Khurda Road to Visakhapatnam
KHURDA ROAD : 10 MIN. LATE
VISAKHAPATNAM : 05 MIN. LATE
The train has a great run in this section. If you can, track its speed. It will be close to MPS for the entire night. Myself observed it recently. The average speed of 81 km/hr between Khurda Road and Vizianagram is realistically achieved on most runs.
Part III: Visakhapatnam to Vijayawada
VISAKHAPATNAM : 05 MIN. LATE
SAMALKOT : 10 MIN. LATE
RAJAHMUNDRY : 15 MIN. LATE
TADEPALLIGUDEM : 15 MIN. LATE
VIJAYAWADA : 15 MIN. LATE
The train gets slightly delayed due to high morning traffic in this section. Add to that huge freight traffic after Samalkot. Runs ahead of AP A.C. Exp. till Vijayawada. AP A.C. Exp. is halted at Outer and this A.C. Exp. is usually given preference.
Part IV: Vijayawada to Chennai Central
VIJAYAWADA : 15 MIN. LATE
ONGOLE : 05 MIN. LATE
NELLORE : 05 MIN. LATE
GUDUR : ON TIME
SULLURUPETA : ON TIME
CHENNAI CENTRAL: 15 MIN. LATE
The train has a thrashing run till Nellore. Thrashes apart many stations at MPS. The afternoon warmness is neglected because of the speed. After Nellore, the real crawling begins. Train might arrive Before Time at Sullurupeta (happened during my run). After Sullurupeta, crawling will continue. Just before Chennai, Vijayawada Jan-Shatabdi might overtake this train. The run through the Chennai Suburbs is very slow, after Minjur. Might be held up at Chennai Central Outer due to huge number of late night departures.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    The following changes are being introduced to keep the PNR Forum functioning. . 1. A "bookmarklet" called "PNR Refresh" has been created. Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning. . 2. When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

A full dedicated offline-capable messaging/blogging app, encompassing all the features of the IRI site. The RailFan app...

    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 an advance notice of a new feature that will be introduced within the next couple of days. The feature is called "Spottings". . 1. Any time you see a train ANYWHERE - while railfanning, while travelling in a train, while visiting a station, seeing someone off, receiving someone, while your train...
