Re# 2369119-3            Tags   Past Edits
This action must have been taken because Saurashtra Mail runs late normally by an hour or sometimes by 1 hour 30 minutes.The train fails to keep up its SF timetable.Instead of giving accumulated slack in the end , the slack needs to be distributed equally.Has the halt at Mithapur been removed?The point to be noted is that the arrival of Rajkot is too early for the train even inspite of the known fact that Surendranagar - Rajkot is a single line section and with so many trains including freights , the train experiences many crossings within the stretch.The arrival at Rajkot should be pushed further considering this fact .Halt time should be reduced to 15 minutes which I find is suitable and I guess they have done it in the New time table.Train can be speeded up even more in Kanalus- Okha section because the only trains encountering crossing with 22945...
will be the passenger trains.In this way the train can retain its SF status.

The problem is that we are not much aware of the fact that Saurashtra Mail has started getting an RSA with Okha-Somnath Express .This should mean no augumentation of Slip 12 coaches happening at Rajkot .I think this is also the reason why the halt at Rajkot is of barely 10 minutes.

Seen in the video is 12477 Jamnagar - Shri Mata Waishno Devi Katra Sindhu Superfast Express with (Ex.VATVA) SABARMATI WDP-4D #40255 in the lead crossing our 22945/Slip 22945 Mumbai Central - Okha / Veraval Junction Saurashtra Mail at a scenic railway station of Digsar (Class B) which falls on Surendranagar Junction - Than Junction stretch.(speed was around 90-95 kmph).Note the high level of cleanliness.There was not even a bit of paper or plastic lying on the railway tracks.This station has a Sleeper Manufacturing Unit too.
Surendranagar - Wankaner stretch
is a single line non-electrified section under control of M.A.U.Q. Semaphore Signals (M.P.S. is 100 kmph).The specific signals within the Station Limits are Distant (sometimes Double Distant Signals are also provided on sections with train speeds greater than 120-130 kmph),Bracketed Home , Starter and Advanced Starter.Interlocking is of majorly Standard 2/3 Type because the passing through speed of trains are equal to or greater than 75 kmph.
We waited for nearly 20 minutes on Loop Line for the crossing.Single line + Non - electrified territory+ Semaphore + High Speed Trains (100 kmph ) = Awesome Crossing!
Time - 8:45 hours
Date -23 rd May ,2017.
Location - Digsar Station.

    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...

    -@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,...
