#First on IRI Video of VaishnoDevi Inaugural Express blasting past Soldevanahalli today on time.. Inaugural Special - 02679 Bangalore - Vaishno Devi Spesial -------------------------------------------------- -------------- Its a big day for all... more...
the pilgrims who want to visit Viashnodevi from Bangalore. The Inaugural special superfast 02679 Bangalore - Katra has been flagged off today. It would run as a Premium Express on its regular run. Flagged off on time, PoHed and decorated KJM WDP4 20067 chugged through Soldevanhalli at MPS skipping and proceeding onwards for next scheduled halt at Ballari via Chikjajur.
You were excited because you are staying in Bengaluru. Think of people in enroute, who can see the train but cannot board, just because it does not stop anywhere and you are required to pay premium fares for no fault of yours.
Agree with you, only about the stoppages. It would be more useful if it stops at the stations enroute. I hope it would be converted to normal superfast after reviewing the occupancy stats. And hope your frustration would be blown off soon. But until then, I still have a direct connection to Katra. Not stopping at intermediate stations cannot control my excitement.
Lovely Snap but I am thinking about the loco pilots' condition since there is no toilet facility in these dippys as of now. Premium trains will run non-stop for hours between two stations and there is an absence of proper timings regarding eating and even attending nature's calls for these LPs... a Secunderabad - Nagpur Run would be taxing for them :-(
