Passengers from South Kolkata Areas like Behala Sakuntala Park, Behala Chowrasta (Xing), Taratala Majerhat, Ekbalpore, and Belvedere Road (Alipore Zoo - Taj Bengal) can board the WBTC (Ex-CSTC) Bus Service on Route No: S-45 (Sakuntala Park to Kolkata Station) even between 5 to 6 AM as this bus starts with the day's First Trip during these early morning hours. Due to low traffic in the morning, this bus takes around 25 Minutes to cover a distance between Behala Bazar/Taratala and Kolkata Station via Park Street - Wellingtone Square - Manicktala Route. Passengers who want to board early morning trains like the Akal Takht Express from KOAA can give this bus a try and keep taxis as their 2nd (back-up) preference.

CBC Coupling provides extra safety to passengers: here i would like to Quote one of our admin Mr Murali sir on the topic " how cbc coupling provides xtra safety to passengers"
CBC couplers are like two fists gripping each other. The chances of
un-coupling in case of derailment are very low, so one coach climbing over
is low.
If a accident enough force to tip a coach over to its side. the two adjacent coaches will hold this coach straight remember Bhuvneshwar Raj incident a
few months back. There is a extremely small chance that the whole rake may
tip over.
Even in the Dnynashweri Exp incidence, where half the rake tipped over it's
side onto the adjacent track, this CBC would have kept the rake upright
(Loco and first half of the train had not derailed) and at the most a few
feet to the side.
The world has used CBC since 1960's, even with steam locos, our old MG
stock is also retrofitted with CBC couplers.

Guard Railings

What guard rails and why are they used?
While traveling in a train you might have observed extra pair of rails are provided along a bridge, below a flyover or foot over bridge. These rails are known as guard rails. The purpose of the guard rails is to prevent the derailed train to hold on the tracks, not to moVe away from the track to avoid more destruction. The picture is self explanatory, that the guard rails hold the wheels of the bogies in case of a de-railment and prevent a
major catastrophe.
Just to prevent more destruction due de-railment. The bridges, flyovers may suffer a lot if de-railment occurs, but these rails prevent that from happening. Hope this clears all doubts regarding the side/guard rails.
