diamond in action with a train, which I captured for the first time. Coals are generally termed as Black Diamond, and since this train connects Kolkata, Naihati and Burdwan with the industrial and coal belts of Dhanbad, Kulti, Barakar, Kumardubi, Sitarampur, Asansol, Ranigunj, Andal, Durgapur, Panagarh, Waria and Mankar, so this train is also equally named. And we railfans fondly call this train to be the younger sister of 12339/12340 Howrah (HWH)- Dhanbad (DHN) COALFIELD Superfast Express.
Bally is the station where the HB Main and HB Chord Lines diverge after coming together from Howrah. And over the road-cum-rail bridge (which is seen in the video), the lines from Sealdah comes, which have another station for their own, namely Bally Halt. So this is a unique example of a railway station being situated just over another different railway station.
Giving me company on the trip was Anal Ghosh.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@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,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
