Route diverted 12253 YPR - BGP Anga Express at Manoharpur(MOU) ( SER - CKP division). Our train was diverted via - BZA, BPQ, NGP, BSP, TATA, KGP due to Cyclone Phailin. Our train was hauled by HWH WAP - 4. At MOU, our loco suffered some technical glitch and was later rescued by a WAG - 7.
Haan adventure se kam nahi tha ye diversion. Train 24 hrs late pahuchi thi JSME. BGP 25 hrs late pahuchi thi. Dussehra train par manana pada tha uss time.
14/10/2013 ko Dussehra tha. Train YPR se 12/10/2013 ko chali thi aur BGP 15/10/2013 ko pahuchi.
Bohot important jagah h manoharpur as saare aas paas k mines ka rake wahin lagta h.. Rourkela, gua, chiriya, barsua, etc kahin bhi jaane se pehle manoharpur jaana parta tha in my days at Rourkela
Aur, aas paas ke logon ke liye Railways bahut important link hai TATA/CKP jaane ke liye. Even district headquarter Chaibasa jaane ke liye train se CKP jaa kar by road Chaibasa jaate hain log.
