Re# 64488-5            Tags   Past Edits
U r absolutely right!!!
The train is having fantastic run in between HWH-MGS (even much faster than Himgiri Exp)
Then it enroutes BSB-PBH-LKO, with lot many stoppages (Via Main Line is written on board, but BSB-SLN-LKO is main line, not via PBH)
Further, LKO-MB-ASR is quite better, but Roza Jn type stoppage dosnt sync with this train!!
think, IR run this train like Intercity in between BSB-LKO-MB & thats the reason for this train to be bumper houseful (5 AC, which no other train between HWH-ASR/JAT owes)
I have seen Generator Brake Van (with generator on) once in this rain (& never has seen generator van in any other mail/express)
PS: When IR is having HWH-ASR Express (Duplicate Punjab Mail - always empty with 4 SL & 1 3A), serving as back-up, ASR Mail stoppage should be revised, so that HWH-ASR Exp will make some more crowd & Mail will get speeded up, with less MST/Intercity Crowd!!

Vinay, via Main Line as displayed on the board is correct because it is actually referring to the HWH-MGS Main Line via PNBE as opposed to the Grand Chord Line via Dhanbad-Gaya. The reference is not to the BSB-LKO line via Sultanpur.

TKX for the info!!!!
All but one HWH bound train enroutes Gaya (from LKO), so every train is thru main-line!!!

I think this train desevs to be made into a daly train instead of thrice in a week as we can see tht its occupancies are always above 80%

Re# 64600-1            Tags   Past Edits
Lohit & Amarnath are its counterparts, on other days!!
Its 80% full, but with 20 Coaches (1 3A & 1 2A), so have possibility to add more sleepers!!
Further, as per your info, its 20% empty on exiting days, making probability of 100% emptiness n extra days!!

I do not know for this train, but for HWH - YPR duronto, eunuch problem was there as reported by bloggers earlier. Duration for technical stoppages can be 10 min/15 min. Yes, water filling, loading of food ios done at these technical halts.
