The entrance of Sambalpur Jn station. Taken by my friend yesterday (Arpil 2) in his return journey. He went for a Hirakud trip a few days back. ( I already posted a few pics taken on the day, he reached SBP /blog/post/2215845 ) His return train was 18006 Samaleswari Express.
I dont hv complete info abt dis bt shayd 18425/26 PURI-DURG exp eloco leke ja rhi h upto SBP frm PURI. Infact mere trip me v VSKP P4 tha. I m not completely sure whether it goes upto SBP or not as I alighted at BBS. Bt, my uncle told me dat d loco change happens at SBP where Raipur based EMD hauls it all d way till DURG.
Yup I think. I m not sure yet. U may confirm. Coz DURG-PURI running wid eloco is creating suspicion in my mind. Earlier it used to run wid EMD end to end. N if eloco is being given den it is not upto CTC. N also, as it is d fastest trn btn PURI-CTC so LC isn't possible. Maane eloco CTC er aage jache. Ebr tar age to ektai spot ache LC er. Seta holo SBP. Mane hoyto SBP obdi jache eloco etate.
As per IRI TT, eloco PURI- TALCHER jache. Maane electrification is undergoing at SBP. Also, Tapaswini dual alco niye jache PURI theke. So maybe eloco SBP obdi jache na. Jodi jeto thle Tapaswini VSKP P4 peto all d way upto HTE.
