New Trains in Rail Budget 2014-15 For Jharkhand #1
Presenting a series of new trains for Jharkhand in upcoming Rail Budget 2014-15 made by me. The first is Howrah-Tatanagar AC Superfast Express by utilizing the rake of HWH-DGHA Duronto Express.
AC Express
Howrah-19.15 Except Wednesday
Kharagpur-20.53 20.55
Tatanagar-22.55 Except Wednesday
Tatanagar-05.40 Except Wednesday
Kharagpur-07.23 07.25
Howrah-09.15 Except Wednesday
Distance-250 km
Travel Time-3 Hours 40 minutes (HWH-TATA)| 3 Hours 35 minutes (TATA-HWH)
Average Speed-71 km/hr (approx)
Coach Composition-EOG-02 CC-07 EC-01
REASON FOR SUCCESS AND NEED-Intercity service between Steel City of Jamshedpur and nearest Metro Kolkata. Morning departure and arrival from Tata and at Howrah will make it most preferred train from Tata along with normal fare structure. Short travel time is also a plus point.
Departure from Howrah is late evening which is preferred by many passengers rather than the departure time of Steel Express.
Comment are welcome.

(a) Wednesday off: I presume you want to take care of the "mangla haat" of Howrah for which many passengers are expected between TATA and HWH on tuesdays, and also because of the weekly off-day for shops in Jamshedpur markets/shops on tuesday.
(b) TATA Dep 05.40: In winter it may be too tough and thus patronage may be drastically affected.
(c) Journey time 3 hr 35 min TATA-HWH: Better to keep it 3 hr 45 min due to difficulties in availability of platforms at HWH after 9 am. When Ispat was
introduced, the travel time was 3 hr 30 min, but had to be revised to 3 hr 40 min - so far the record time that was - that too during 'Emergency period' days when trains were running along with watch-hands.
(d) I would have added Ghatsila as stoppage, although the golden days of Ghatsila/Rakha are now gone.

The 2-storied station building has quite a number of rooms on the first floor - good location, view also should be good. One IR person said these are retiring rooms. Somebody may throw light on details w.r.t availability, booking procedure etc.

I was under the impression that trains between Howrah and Digha start from/arrive at Shalimar. On the IR site, I observe that the three pairs of trains (Tamralipta, Duronto and Kandari) start from/arrive at HWH. Please let me know if this is a recent development.

    -@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,...
