Booking Preference Tip.
If you have to travel from Delhi to Coastal Odisha , then your train availability searching priority should as: (For SL class)
1. Purushottam express (No doubt about this train;Book this as your 1st preference)
2. BBS Duronto express (only for Bhubaneswar people ; Punctuality is poor; But very safe and secure as no unreserved or daily travellers are allowed to
...
more...
board)
3. Odisha Sampark Kranti express (Puctuality is poor but its better bcoz NO unreserved or WL crowd boards this train due to Least halts in UP)
4. Nandan Kanan express (Better than neelanchal bcoz takes shorter route; punctuality is poor but seat availibility is better than Neelanchal)
5. Neelanchal Express (You will hardly get CNF seat in this train; Very demanded train as its the only train connecting Central UP with Odisha & puri)
6. Hirakund Express (Takes the shortest route; Good punctuality; but problem is its speed and total time taken; Huge number of halts and unreserved & Daily travellers board this in SL class)
7 ANVT BBS weekly express (Train best suited for Western Odisha; takes 2nd longest route and punctuality is poor ;Not much beneficial for coastal odisha)
8. Kalinga Utkal express (This should be the least preferred for travelling to coastal odisha; Very slow and heavy crowded throughout the route with Unreserved , WL and Daily travellers;Maintenance is below average;Takes the Longest route so that whole northern coastline of odisha is covered but still takes hell lot of time;Don't take SL class in this train unless have NO other option)
Now For AC classes,
Only opt Rajdhani or Purushottam. Getting seat in BBS rajdhani is easier and journey would be punctual.

Punctuality very good ??? Kya bol dia aapne sir...Its Excellent. Balasore pe Utkal aur Purushottam do train aati hain at midnight from Delhi, but Puru majority 1-1.30hr delay rehti hai but Utkal humesha ontime.
But kharabi yeh hai ki Koi leta hi nahi hai from Delhi to Coastal odisha. Itna circular journey kaun kare. ;)
Western odisha jyada prefer karte hain Utkal.

Thats right...ECoR ne more faster ANVT BBS SF de di for western odisha, but woh kabhi bhi on time nahi chalti. Always 4-5hrs delay.
But this old horse Utkal always stay on time whatever be the season. Best preferred by Wetern odisha only.

Yes...the pantry standard is average below standard.....Instead good pantry is present in Odisha sampark kranti which serves good quality food as per my last journey experience.
But then we have to compromise on Punctuality factor if we check on pantry quality.

delhi to Odisha travelling people don't like Utkal exp but the people of MP , specially from jabalpur side (Boarding from Katni) and going to Balasore-Bhadrak, people still prefer Kalinga Utkal due to its punctual and direct route.
End to End people don't prefer but Intermediate travellers prefer it very much due to its good seat availability.

The reason is absolute stoppage of starting any new train for odisha.
The last train that was started for odisha to north india was ANVT BBS Weekly SF which was for Western Odisha on the same departure slot as of Odisha Sampark kranti.
After that till now there is NO trains started. All the RM have completely ignored to connect Puri , a one of the Biggest tourist destination with Jammu-Katra or Haridwar or Amritsar North Indian cities.

Problem with Hirakund is Huge Number of Halts and very slow TT with Heavy inflow of MST/UR travellers between Delhi-Bina.
Whereas in nandan Kanan , the rush is bit less as compared to Hirakund....If ECoR somehow Speed up Hirakund express (which is easily possible) , then i would say it can climb up to atleast Rank 2.

Problem is that a train with as much halts as Hirakud will need little more slack...
I wont deny that its not feasible...
Ofcourse its feasible, at the same time too much halts should be removed.
P.S: removing stops aint that easy :P :P

Duronto ko kabhi kabhi as an offlink mil jati hai WAP-7 but very rarely..Purushottam should get it upto Puri instead upto KGP..

Yes...About 20-30 minutes speed up is possible for VSKP-ASR Hirakund express between CTC-JSG.
And instead of Sambalpur bypass, i would say EcoR should electrify the SBP-JSG stretch and then Loco change over can be doe at SBP itself with reversal also just like its happening at present at JSG. And due to which, it can bypass JSG station.
It will be more easier for the ECoR train to bypass SER satellite station instead of bypassing a ECoR Division Junction.

SBP is divisional HQ. And bypassing a Divisional HQ by the home zone well demanded train is nearly impossible.
Labor unions and People of Sambalpur won't accept this kind of bypass.
JSG is very small as compared to SBP and bypassing it wont serve much of loss to Railways in comparison to Sambalpur.

The train will still serve the city albeit it will stop at sambalpur city halt.there are many examples in the past that it has been done. The sole garib rath train in secr bypasses zonal hq bilaspur and goes through usalapur to avoid lr.abkp durg exp was also diverted earlier. Well am not personally advocating any thing, just citing examples from.past. and it all depends upon ecor that how fast it completes electrification process.
Bypassed or not this still a very good train averaging 54 km speed despite so many halts. (except the avg cleanliness) and personally prefer it while going to delhi from bsp

This aggressive schedule specially between SBP-BSP makes it sometimes delayed while arriving BSP (45min to 1hr delay).
If JSG bypassing is done, then i think some slack can be provided.
ECoR won't bypass this train from SBP.
As already can be seen , to cover more of its zonal territory, ECoR extended it to VSKP in all covering ALL divisional HQ of

Mai toh Odisha CM Naveen Pattnaik ji se agree karunga. Unka demand tha VSKP to give to SCR and Hijlli to Ranital SER Stretch to ECoR thus having full Odisha state. One State One Zone.

Yes i too agree.... That has to done. But E.Co.Rly doesnt like to loose VSKP which is highest earning Divison. my question is simple. When there are 4 trains to Gaya in which one can be extended as it is starting from BBS (Puri trains i dot like to extend as it is a Big Pilgrim point and not possible also) why dont they do that? RB never object to extension.

Odisha Sampark kranti can never be extended to VSKP. Its for Odisha state, not for Andhra.
Berhampur extension can be possible but for that Pitlines and infrastructure from Zero level to be developed at BAM.
Forget the BBS Rajdhanis.
Only train remains is BBS ANVT Weekly express which is having RSA with BBSR ANVT Duronto express. For extension to VSKP, atleast 20-22hours (8+8hrs
...
more...
journey up down and 4-5hrs Maintenance time) extra time is needed for this train which is not possible.
So only possibility remains is a New train.

i am saying this train because this is SF and extension i am asking this is only extendable train to go ALD/BSB/MGs for Direct pax to ANVT this is useless but for ALD/MGS/BSB this is good option. My request for extension is for ALD/MGS/BSB purpose not for NDLS.

Yes they are excellent but the Rajdhanis don't have SL class. They only have AC classes and my this tip is for booking in SL classes.

#BookingTip
People who wish to take this train from Balasore/Kharagpur to Delhi (Never opt this train,still if having NO other option) , and getting Regret status , then book Bhadrak to New Delhi and Change your Boarding Point to Balasore/Kharagpur (Whichever is your boarding station).
Balasore is Charting station for this train and BLS & KGP are under RLWL , whereas BHC is under GNWL , thus having more chance to get confirm seats.

You can not.
You have booked a Ticket From KGP to NDLS, then you cannot change its boarding from a previous station.
Only option is Cancel this ticket and Re-book for Bhadrak to New Delhi by paying extra money and change the boarding station to Kharagpur.

There are total 4 Pf.
Pf 1: Its the Pf which is at the entry building and the main exit gate from here only. Intercity trains Baghajatin passenger (both up-down), Dhauli express (Puri bound) and BGY BBS express (BBS bound) comes on this Pf. This also acts as a loop line for freight or other train, which are to be overtaken by some other train.
Pf 2: Its NOT an island type Pf. All the main administrative and commercial offices like GRP-RPF station, Postoffice , Parcel booking , Waiting halls etc are present
...
more...
here only. On this Pf , the trains coming from HWH/KGP side and going towards CTC side comes. This is on Main Line (Pf 1 act as loop line for overtakes).
Pf 3: Its an island type Pf. This is also on main line itself and the trains coming from CTC side and going towards KGP/HWH side comes on this Pf.
Pf 4: This Pf is used as a loop line for the overtakes. If a freight or express train is to be overtaken, then its towed on Pf 4 and the other train overtakes from Pf 3. But sometimes there comes exception. All the passenger train going towards KGP are brought on Pf 3 only (Not on any pother Pf). So if an express train is to overtake a passenger train, then it has to overtake from Pf 4.
Now here at BLS station, only 2-3 trains pass by without halting, like MAS HAZ Sangrami and PURI-SDEAH duranto, or else all other every train halts here.

BBS rajdhani halts here because after Cuttack, its the biggest city before West Bengal and a great money earner for ECoR.
Rajdhani is halting here from its 1st run itself.
Sangrami is a SR train , so SER can't interfere for halts.
But still its a huge secret why only Sangrami and HWH SSPN doesn't halt here, whereas rest every non-duranto train halts here.

And also I dnt know why many premium express trains and AC premium express trains which halt at BHC don't halt at BLS ?? I think it might b due to lack of platforms or these trains don't hv dat mch demand frm BLS.

Pf constraints are present. Up and Down Platforms have No Loop line. Direct Mainline is there for Pf 2 and 3.
Thats why they dont give halt for some Special trains like SRC ERS special.
But majorly all the regular express train halt here.
Sangrami , SSPN SF and KYQ PURI are exception.

BBS Rajdhani gets an End to End WAP 7. Personally seen the same WHite stallion getting reversed and attached to Rajdhani at KGP.
But Purushottam gets a separate WAP 4 Loco from KGP to Puri and vice versa.

I think the official link is WAP-4 from Puri to KGP n vice versa coz in this site the same loco link is mentioned for 12801 though for 12802 it shows WAP-7 GZB end to end. i dnt knw the reason bt for last 3-4 weeks i.e since Ganesh chaturthi BBS Raj is mostly(for 5 days a week) seen with WAP-4 of diff sheds like SRC, BRC,MGS, CNB at Balasore. One of the members of IRI said tht it was due to the shortage of wap7 loco pilots as they are undergoing training and most of the imp trains(with loco link WAP7 GZB) are given WAP-4 as offlink. this Thursday 22824 was seen with HWH WAP-7. All these things are quite confusing

Semane tah debe... kahinki naa they are jealous of ECor....they can't tolerate an ECoR train getting WAP-7 regularly... KGP officials r "paidaaishi kuttas (Dogs by birth)" u know...I suspect that even if NR gives WAP-7 regularly to BBS raj, the SER Rly kuttas of KGP give WAP4 sometimes to this Rajdhani exp upto BBS rather than giving WAP7 .

SER KGP authorities are dogs as they are kaminaas and ECoR authorities are donkeys and some are snails as they are much lazy.. the two railway zones have combinedly ruined the state of railway in Odisha... Balasore is an imp city of Odisha but see its railway stn.... seems to b even smaller than BHC and JJKR... SER has ruined BLS but I hope ECoR (even though it's lazy) can improve this station

This is the most punctual train between Howrah- Bhubaneswar, runs 6 days (except Sunday) a week. Most of time it reaches at Cuttack junction 5 to 15 minutes before its schedule arrival time. Its average speed is 65 km/hr (as per IR time table). This train was introduced to run from Bhadrak to Howrah and Howrah to Bhadrak in 2002-03 Rail budget and later on it extended upto Bhubaneswar. Now a days Vishakapatnam based WAP- 4 locomotive in charge to haul the train for its up and down journey. Photo Credit- You Tube.
