Hello My dear friends
Today I going to say about the mistakes on Pune to Delhi , Punjab , Utttakhand bound trains as well as route here
* Before You read this Blog those who like the route of DD - ANG - MMR the most please dont read this blog , skip this blog.
First of all ,
you all Know that from Pune to Delhi , Punjab etc. there are 8 - 9 trains here . Out of 4 are Superfast categories , 2 Sampark Krantis , 1 Duronto + AC Superfast and 1 Mail/Express category .
Out 7 trains are via DD - MMR - BSL - BPL and 2 of them are via the mainline (i.e via KYN , WR) . I dont have much to Say about 12263/64 and 12493/94 . But I have to say about those trains via DD - MMR - BSL - BPL . These trains take a very long route here about a distance of 1600 Km . And these all trains take about 26 - 28 hours here , means much a waste of time here . Not only they cover a very long route but other ammenities in train is not also good here . Food was also not good here. Also in these trains there are lot of Waiting list here that I have observed here in these trains. And these trains need to perform LR at Daund and in that LR about 20 mins are wasted in Loco reversal instead if you go via Kalyan you would not go fast but you would get to explore the beautiful Bhor ghats section here and after Kalyan your train would coverup the Major time . Whereas here if you go via Daund , after Daund as you enter in Ahmednagar Manmad Section your train would be slow down since there is a single route traffic section till Manmad . And due to this there is unecessary Unscheduled halts are taken in between from Daund to Manmad due the train coming from Manmad . Just 10 years ago I had travelled in Goa Express firstly it covered a very long route as well as we had to do Tatkal booking here . And other ammenities were not good like food etc. Due to this me and my family got disappointed here.
And according to me I would give Goa Express Rating as 5 / 10 here. And due to this long route , Poor amenities Many people from Pune travel by Duronto Express or prefer to travel by Flight.
Also according to me out 7 trains , 3 trains must divert its route via KYN , WR from Pune Onwards.
1 . 12629/30
2 . 12147/48
3. 22685/86
And in case of both the Sampark krantis , as being as sampark kranti Why railway officials didn't route it via WR , KYN and route it via PUNE - DD - MMR - BSL , because it was clone of 12649/50 thats why ? Do these railway officials know that they are detoriating the Sampark Kranti here ? Instead they would convert this train to Superfast , or if they want Skr then according to me they should route it via KYN , WR from Pune Onwards
And last but not the least in case of 12263/64 and 12493/94
According to me 12493/94 must be shifted to 12263 slot timings and must be extended till Dehradun . And 12263/64 must be till NZM would be enough according to me .
In this blog this much , stay home and stay safe
