(HD) Crazy offlink ET WDP-4B HUMSAFAR rattles Begumpur with extreme notching!! Daemon dusts off darkness!!

This Winter treated railfans from across India with some amazing offlinks. But what we got over the last few days would surely go down as one of the biggest diesel offlinks of Winter 2016- 2017.

Inauguration, the 12503/ 12504 Kamakhya (KYQ)- Bangalore Cantt. (BNC) HUMSAFAR Weekly Express ran with either SGUJ WDP- 4, HWH WDM- 3D, or UDL WDG- 4 in between Kamakhya and Howrah. But this week, the train came with a crazy offlink, i.e. 40042 ET WDP- 4B, and then went back with the same. Earlier, ET Alcos (WDM- 3A, WDM- 3D, WDM- 2) did visit Howrah/ Kolkata, but this was the first time ever that an ET EMD ventured out this far.
In the video, enjoy the furious notching by the EMD, as it cruises past Begumpur station on ER's HB Chord enroute with the glamorous 19 coacher LHB train. After clearing a TSR at Janai Road, the drivers wasted no time in notching up the throttle, and as a result, we were treated with some furious growling by the EMD.
12504 is the second HUMSAFAR Express to hit the tracks. The train follows the Kamakhya- (Via Goalpara Town)- New Bongaigaon- (Via New CoochBehar)- New Jalpaiguri- Kishanganj- Malda Town- Rampurhat- Howrah- Kharagpur- Bhadrakh- Cuttack- Bhubaneshwar- Khurdah Road- Brahmapur- Vizianagaram- Vishakapatnam- Vijayawada- Perumbur- Katpadi- Bangalore Cantt. route.
Amazing #offlink

I was on a railfanning trip to a station named Ghoraghata (GGTA) on the Kharagpur- Santragachi stretch of SER (South Eastern Railways). As my EMU from Howrah was approaching a station named Fuleshwar, I saw a unique liveried train approaching from Kharagpur side with a WAG- 7 in lead. As I started recording the video, I realized it was the brand new rake of ANTYODAYA Express headed by a 27009 MGS WAG- 7 in lead.
The entire rake consisted of 22 coaches (20 GS+ 2 EOG), and was booked for SER's SRC base. The rake would be used either for the Howrah (HWH)- Ernakulam (ERS) ANTYODAYA, or the Santragachi (SRC)- Chennai Central (MAS) ANTYODAYA.
Now, I have quite a few queries regarding the train, listed below.
1) The EOGs were marked with 160 km/hr top speed. But the GS coaches had 2 set of markings, as 105 km/hr and 130 km/hr (You can freeze the video, and check). Why is it so?
2) Other than being a LHB rake sporting a new livery (And having extra sets of seats instead of the luggage rack), it this ANTYODAYA in anyway different than the JAN SADHARAN/ JAN SEWA/ JAN NAYAK set of train? Or is it just Old Wine in New Bottle??

Non AC LHB coaches have max operational speed of 130 km/hrs on C&M Vol. 1 routes. Basically C&M Vol.1 is the number of RDSO report in which the basic benchmarks for high level track maintenance are mentioned. If any route have that short of track maintenance as mentionined in that report then in that stretch these coaches will run at a MPS of 130 km/hr. Routes where track maintenance isn't done strictly according to the set standards mentioned in that RDSO report then in that route these coaches will have a MPS of 105 km/hr.

You are correct. The coaches read as :
Track Standard C & M- I Vol- I : 130 KM/HR
Track Standard Other than C & M- I Vol- I : 105 KM/HR.

I personally feel proving Water Purifiers in these Fully Unreserved General coaches seem to be a disaster. In a country where fire extinguishers, lamps, fans, handwash, etc gets stolen from trains on an almost daily basis, I doubt how long will these purifiers last in these coaches.

Well, at least IR is doing it's part by providing the facility. It's good, given that it's very difficult to get packaged water in many routes and stations. Whether it turns out to be a good idea, now depends on the passengers.

Few people abuse the services and bcoz of those few people depriving a whole class of passengers from better facilities is definitely not justified. Wifi services available at stations also gets abused by some Idiotic people but bcoz of those few Idiots if Indian railways says that it will not provide this facility at any of it's station, would that be a right decision?
Passengers travelling in Unreserved coaches also have the right to get better facilities that can enhance their travel experience. Railway isn't a private enterprise that it would only care about Reserved passengers. It's a public organization and it has obligations towards it's each & every passenger irrespective of the class in which he/she travels.

time, it is going to be the Inaugural run of the newest kid of South Eastern Railways.
It was only yesterday that announcement of the new train was done. And today, i.e. January 20, 2017, the Inaugural run commenced. With a big inaugural ceremony being organised, it was the best possible way to flag off this new train. And sharp at 15:00, the beautifully garlanded 02887 Howrah (HWH)- Yesvantpur (YPR) HUMSAFAR INAUGURAL Special started her journey with 22500 SRC WAP- 4 in lead. The detailed coverage of the Interiors is also covered in the video. The inaugural run was done today with the rejected NR rake, which was used to inaugurate the 02504 Kamakhya (KYQ)- Bangalore Cantt. (BNC) HUMSAFAR INAUGURAL Special. The train will get the newer rake in the recent future.
The train, which will be numbered as 22887/ 22888, will follow the Howrah- Kharagpur- Balasore- Cuttack- Bhubaneshwar- Khurdah Road- Brahmapur- Vizianagaram- Vishakapatnam- Rajahmundry- Vijayawada- Ongole- Renigunta- Katpadi- Yesvantpur route.

Powered by 22365 SRC WAP- 4, the 12277 Howrah (HWH)- Puri (PURI) SHATABDI Express speeds through the reversible line of Ghoraghata station at fantastic speed. And within minutes, the late running 12504 Kamakhya (KYQ)- Bangalore Cantt. (BNC) HUMSAFAR Weekly Express thunders away, trying its best to make up some lost time. Luckily after running behind freight locomotives for a few times, this time it got the privilege of being hauled by 22864 SRC WAP- 4.
12504 is the second HUMSAFAR Express to hit the tracks. The train follows the Kamakhya- (Via Goalpara Town)- New Bongaigaon- (Via New CoochBehar)- New Jalpaiguri- Kishanganj- Malda Town- Rampurhat- Howrah- Kharagpur- Bhadrakh- Cuttack- Bhubaneshwar- Khurdah Road- Brahmapur- Vizianagaram- Vishakapatnam- Vijayawada- Perumbur- Katpadi- Bangalore Cantt. route.

It pains to see diesel guzzling smoke spewing monsters running on electrified route.
Locos should be changed to electric as soon as diesel territory ends. Not sure about this particular train's route dynamics though.

The train uses diesel under wires from Rampurhat to Howrah. But it is not possible to do a loco change at Rampurhat for such short halt (5 mins). So the trains will get diesel untill electrification goes all the way till Malda Town.
