Very useful
◾Dhanbad Double Decker - Operational Constraints◾
.
The Dhanbad Double Decker Express was stopped just within 5 years of its service. People have a lot of anticipation for this train, some want it to restart on same route, some want it to run towards Siliguri. There are many limitations for this train, rake as well as path. Lets see-
• The train was
...
more...
proposed as High-speed connection to Dhanbad, and was expected to run just ahead of Kolkata Rajdhani Exp in both directions.
• The first blow was during the trials, some coaches were grazed by the platform. The platform edges had to be trimmed a little at some stations.
• The train was not suitable for 130Kmph operations, and became restricted to 110Kmph.
• The roof of the train once touched overhead wires at Howrah yard in busy time, disrupting the traffic.
.
◾ Special instructions for operation of 12385/6 Dhanbad Double Decker Express ◾
• The train was generally NOT allowed to run through DN Chord line (BWN-DKAE), UP & DN 2nd line (BWN-STN-BWN) as the platforms have reverse curve (representative image of DN HBC PF of MDSE stn attached). If was run through above lines, it had to maintain Speed Restriction of 15kmph at every platform line!
• The train could only run through Rajdhani lines, UP/ Reverse (as DN) line (HWH BWN), UP/DN 1st Line (BWN-STN), UP/DN GC (STN-DHN)
• The train had Permanent Speed Restrictions of 15Kmph at the following places over Rajdhani line (platform number in brackets) -
≠In UP direction - Howrah (8,9,13), Bally (5), Saktigarh (1), Galsi (2), Asansol (4), Sitarampur (1), Barakar (1), Kumardubi (1)
≠In DN direction - Kalubathan (2), Asansol (5), Raniganj (3), Barddhaman (5), Belur (4), Liluah (4), Howrah (8,9,13)
• Hence, the slot & schedule was prepared to depart the train in afternoon from Howrah, and a morning departure from Dhanbad, just ahead of Rajdhani Express (reference attached)
.
◾How things became worse?◾
• Things were more or less fine,train was getting some passengers, suddenly the slot was changed. The train on previous slot, was colliding with slots of other trains in DN direction & platform availability was becoming an issue at Howrah, so the train was put on a new slot, to depart Howrah in morning, and Dhanbad in evening arriving Howrah very late at around 23 hours. (the DN locals making it more late at night)
• The train departed just after Poorva in Up direction, so that it doesn't block path of any other train, while it departed in evening from Dhanbad, so that it could use DN Reverse line b/w SKG-DKAE (as the reverse line works as UP line throughout the evening, so a night slot was fine to get the track traffic-free)
• In morning, Ranchi Shatabdi, Black Diamond Exp & Hool Express takes away a good load of Passengers. Similarly in return the passengers ended up at 11PM at night, very inconvenient for many travellers, whereas the Ranchi Shatabdi & Black Diamond was always a more convenient option to Kolkata. The 900 seats of this train could not be filled, so coaches reduced, ultimately the train stopped!
.
• Now with so many running restrictions in the Rajdhani line itself, How much logical will it be to run to run a 900 seat AC train to any other destinations? The answer remains debated!
