Hello Friends,
Some captures of Longest Humsafar Exp of Indian Railways aka 12503 SBC AGTL Humsafar Exp at PF 12 of HWH hauled by SRC P-4 22601 to HWH from SBC on 02/03/2019 evening.
It was also noticed that Driver Display Unit is also installed in SRC P-4 22601. There were some issues regarding the decoupling of the Loco SRC P-4 22601 from the train at HWH the backward movement of the master controller of the Loco pulls the train back to the buffer. But after 30 mins effort from the guard &
LP finally the Loco successfully decoupled from the train CBC Coupling is very tough as the LP & Guard Reported specially to release the wire . I captured the Cab 1 of the Loco where you will see Driver Display Unit is installed also B1 Coach of the train is also captured.
But what I have observed the cleanliness of the lavatories is not done properly Fowl Smell is coming from the lavatories when I was standing near the B1 Coach of the train.
Being the longest Humsafar Exp of Indian Railway this train should be given proper cleaning at HWH as because HWH is the main intermediate station of this train.From HWH Traction of this Train's Loco Changes (From Diesel To Electric & Vice Versa) But the coaches found filthy cleanliness is lacking. Shocking to see that in spite of looking great from outside HUMSAFAR too lacks cleanliness the basic requirement of any train to give a hygienic environment for such a LONG RUN. HUMSAFAR Train mainly run on weekly basis as I guess so why these trains lacks proper cleanliness ?????
Ample Time is given to Railways still HUMSAFAR Express is found Dirty & Filthy very disappointing.
Attached Pics
1 & 3 Cab 1 of the Loco you can see the white colored Driver Display Unit in both the Pics
2 The back side of the Loco after successful decoupling
4 The Entire Loco body at the Time of departing back to ownership shed i.e SRC from PF 12 of HWH
3 B1 Coach of 12503 Humsafar Exp
****** I had a short chat with the LP of SRC P-4 22601 **********
I inquired him that which Loco is best P-4 or P-7
He replied P-7 is best regarding driving technoques argonomic seats & very good for LPs being a Computer Controlled Locomotive but regarding Rainy Season P-7 has issues which he didn't clarify in detail. It may be the Wheel Slip issue of P-7 I guess at Rainy Season.
On the other hand P-4 is also best to him but he told "Now P-4 production has been stopped completely so we have to habituate ourselves with P-7 as in the coming days P-7 will take the place of P-4 and will be used widely with trains.
It was also observed that Dn Poorva Exp was hauled by WAP-4 of HWH instead of P-7 of HWH/GZB docked at PF 14 of HWH on 02/03/2019 evening.
