Jul 16 (17:49)   12209/Kanpur Central - Kathgodam Weekly Express | IZN/Izzatnagar (3 PFs) | LDH/WDM-3A/16877

Missing GR 😢😢
*****REQUESTED ALL TO READ THE BLOG COMPLETELY*****
It was an overcast day with constant spurts of rain regularly and brief show up of sunlight at Bareilly. The weather in past few days have been miserable. To sum up, it had been a few days that I went for any RF session and I was waiting for the perfect day.
.
And there it was,
...
more...
it was the inaugural run of Kathgodam-Kanpur-Kathgodam Express which is now changed as an existing Garibrath. I was all set to leave my place, and thanking all rain Gods I reached IZN completely dry.🙂
After a brief stint and roam around the tracks, I spotted a multiple carriage van with OHEs on a bay PF aside PF1. I went for its inspection just to run into the SSE of IZN and DOM.
.
They questioned me for why was I taking snaps of OHE poles and station boards, surprisingly they understood the existence of RF activity at such sparsely crowded HQ station. They were too kind in timbre and made me clear for what actually is the reason to which OHE poles are to be commissioned to.
.
BIG SURPRISE: They cleared that these are for electrification of BE-IZN-PBE-TPU section and not for BE-IZN-LKU-KGM or BE-IZN-LKU-KPV-RMR section. They said that it's not even in their plans to electrify the above two routes at the first place.
.
In the meanwhile, the announcement went for 12209 Kanpur Kathgodam Express which was to be captured for the first time, hearing the honk I was enticed to witness an alco, which must definitely might have belonged to LDH shed, nevertheless the train arrived at PF1 which saw a huge bunch of crowd deboarding and many boarding as well, to be honest post BE-IZN the train was at 30 percent occupancy while before it, it must be close to 90 percent.
.
Now coming to the real question, how did this Garibrath converted Express fared in terms of coach condition...
Well to be true, the standards maintained by Kanpur Garibrath then and the condition of the rake now is too repugnant and miserable. Old coaches basically ICF coaches made before 2010, with poor condition of seats and a dirty rake is all I could say the least, being too much disappointed by this change.
.
This was the first actual Garibrath alongwith it's RSA partner JAT-KGM-JAT Garibrath that went down on the chopping board of Ministry of Railways.
.
I had posted a few pics of RF session and a video..
Please subscribe to Aniket's channel GrandChord RF for more videos.
.
Thanks for reading in...
Have a nice day to everyone.
🙂

Yes, SSE informed that electrification will be done for BE-IZN-PBE-TPU section and later for PBE-MLN section.
No electrification has been commissioned for BE-KGM or LKU-RMR sections.

I don't know about loco link when it used to go via HWH
That time the loco link was alco as KUR divn wasn't electrified
When electrified then rajdhani started running independently (Via tata) loco link was WAP4
Via adra came later and soon got LHBfied

2012 or 13 rajdhani via TATA started getting LHBFIED and zone PM changed to BBS ECoR from NR of NDLS and started having RSA with Rajdhani via adra
In mid 15 or 16 GZB WAP7 became regular link
In 2018 rajdhani exp introduced via SBP (RSA with the 22811/22823)

Do You Agree, The Concept of Garib Rath to conversion in LHB AC Coach?
Or, It Should Be Converted into Humsafar, Normal Superfast or AC Express?
Now, Government is looking forward to Convert all Garib Rath in Normal Express. The Fare of Normal AC Coaches will be more than Garib Rath.

1. Convert low patronage GR even in peak season as does by IR for CNB-KGM & KGM-JAT
2. Convert high demanded GR like ranchi, bandra one to humsafar or ac sf
3. Avg running GR can be replaced by normal ICF 3AC coach
I disagree on giving LHB rake to subsidized and loss makers GR
.
...
more...

Although give LHB to GR by increasing base fare by 10-15% that will also less than normal 3ac fare of express but it will decrease some of burden on IR too
10-15% increase in base fare is hardly 70-80 rs
And i dont think the middle class specially avg middle class will deny this for GR
And these GR are also for Amir its just name as Garib Rath to loss IR
A GR runs full occupancy will give loss also but a Humsafar with flexi fare at 50% occupancy in non peak and 100% plus occupancy in peak season will give profit as 3ac is onoy profitable for IR

Fare change nahi hoga to operational cost kaise nikaliyega. Thoda bahut change to karna hi padega. Aaj nahi to 1-2 saal baad hi sahi. Personally hate GR, but it should continue. Underperforming GR should be converted to Exp/SF and rest should continue as it is.

Mere hisab se shayad underperforming GR shayad hi koi ho. GR sabhi superhit h.
Aap khoob premium coatly trains chalao lekin jo purani kuchh trains kam cost wali h unko to rahne do.
