The worst Running and Overall poor management for service of "Duronto Express". Agree track works going on in Karnataka KR Region but poor handling too from KR over giving less priority. Reached Madgaon Jn. 1½ hours late did not coincide with ahead running Mandovi Express and Madgaon Rajdhani Express but overtaking should have been done at Karmali or Thivim only, normally everytime it has been done like that. But maybe because of technical problem it was held in b/w Madgaon Jn. and Majorda Jn. for almost 30 minutes and from there on was given a non-stop run till Sawantwadi and being held back again and again until Ratnagiri. it didn't even overtake Mandovi express before ratnagiri overall all the 3 trains got late yesterday. One more thing i want to add all the trains were held for the crossing of Mumbai - Madgaon Vande Bharat adding more time for late running....
Honestly as I am writing this blog 12449 Goa Sampark Kranti is waiting for crossing of Vande Bharat from 30 minutes, my point here is at least even Vande Bharat could wait for crossing as it would just cost some minor minutes to it , it has the capability of great pickup overall covering the distance in less time but other trains lack it getting more and more late.

Piss poor priority is the reason. It gets halted for all crossings now unlike earlier when it used to cover MAO MAJN in under 3:30 hours.

Very True !! Used to check the runs last year before Monsoons, it always used to run on time and used to reach Madgaon or Manglore before 30 or 40 mins or on time. A proper "Duronto Run" but now ruined it. As of now same thing happening today crawling upto Mandovi Express and halting at every station behind it.

Konkan Railway was doing the same with 20645 Vande Bharat. After Railway Board's intervention, it now gets top priority.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
