People of Lalgola are not getting benefit of double line. Time from Sealdah is same. Conversion of eloco to EMU may be beneficial to rail and good for short distance passenger, but for those who will be travelling from Sealdah to Lalgola sees no benefit. Saved 30 minutes go to stoppage at Krishnanagar.
Speed in a section depend upon the conditions of the railway tracks not on whether electrification is done or not although electric loco can accelerate much faster and give a better speed but only up to a limit
I am talking about 30 min stoppage at Krishnagar. Had it been just 5 min, the train could reach Lalgola 25 mins earlier. After double line each train in Krishnagar Lalgola section is saving around 30 mins from zero crossing time; but it is not reflecting since 1. Timetable is not revised 2. Some train is running slow 3. Some train has been made EMU with 30 minute stoppage at Krishnagar.
I spotted this train on 17th Feb at Kharagpur. Also captured a video of it. I only knew it was a special train from Bangladesh having the interCity rakes and I didn't know much about it back then but thanks to your post, now I do know what it was....you can see the video in my posts.
Interesting info! I always thought that Maitreyee Express is the only train running between India & BD. Few queries pl: 1. Why is the train from BD regulated at Ranaghat for 9 hours from 1330 to 2230. No such delay while returning. 2. Is there any BD crew which moves into India? 3.... more...
