Train No. 12127 / 12128 Mumbai – Pune – Mumbai
Journey time of 2:35 hrs instead of 3:15 hrs is impressive, and very helpful esp for frequent/daily commuters. But it was reported that actual reduction in journey time was only 20 minutes and not 35 minutes (as reported in link below)
It is interesting to note that Deccan Queen did the journey in just 2:40 hrs for 6 consecutive days with
Push-Pull technique will be successful if Intercity gets perfect schedule and maintained it
Already there is EMU trains ahead of intercity then hows this possible to reach in 2h40 min
And due to landslide in ghat section from last 3 months every train getting late not only intercity
This push pull technique trial should start after January 2020 and Slight change in
The Pull push technique on intercity express is a total failure. This train was diverted after MONKEY HILL to a another track- (used by goods trains) which is empty. This route after MONKEY HILL STATION l till KARJAT has plenty of zig-zag curves and so by the time the train reaches Karjat station, it was ALWAYS -20-25 minutes late. NOw when train reaches Karjat-some EMU locomotives which come from Khopali were allowed to run before Intercity as a result-Intercity Express never reached CST in time-.
NIce atleast old timings of Intercity express has been implemented. so that one can reach destinantion in time.
Nowadays it is getting late
I don't know what is the reason exactly
But before 2. Years ago I was going to Mumbai it was arriving on time
When the train used to reach destination in time, the engine used was WAP -7. Subsequently railways have removed WAP-7 and now Deccan Queen is pulled by some old model of engine (which is totally no comparision to high speed WAP-7).
Unless WAP-7 or WAP-4 pulls DEccan Queen, same problem of late arrival will continue.
