#TripSnaps The 2nd Part of The #TripSnaps is here. This Time its the turn of what happened to be my very next trip, i.e., My Journey in 12394 Sampoorna Kranti Express from New Delhi to Patna JN on 15th & 16th October 2015. It was my very 1st Journey in The Speedster & it made sure that I'd cherish this forever. The main reason being the recent upgradation of SK's MPS to 130kmph, as a result of which it thrashed & blasted past all the stations and hence... more...
arrived Patna 7 minutes before time. Also, That day a Duronto livered EOG was attached to the front end of SK. /diary/trip/75513 #HA
Sir its 130 mps ....outer may be dirty but....the maintenance will be of top quality just like rajdhani's..because of mps ..As told by Ankit bhai..A1coach 2009..made... So the paint will automatically vanished and pale but machine in this rake will be at best... Its interior beauty which a railfan can only see..Agree...:-).. And if maintenance at rjpb is not up to the mark... more...
, then it will be a dream only to run a sf with a high mps.. Kabhi- kabhi interior ganda rehta hai but because of ppl travelling in it.. Khaya aur phek Diya... Phr koi dekhega to kahega.. "Bhai railway much nhi karti ....bas paise leti rehti hai.." At least is train ke liye to pakka hi applicable hota hai. As I have already seen the maintenance of sk which is of top class.. Aur waise bhi general coaches Ki safai Ki tulna hum ac coaches se nhi kar sakte... So overall the best train in maintenance at sf level..

धन्य हुए भाग्य हमारे, जो हम आपके सामने पधारे।। This was the feeling which incurred to me when I came face to face with the Great Crawler, 13132 KOAA-ANVT Express, jokingly called as The Bullet or Crawler Rajdhani by me. For the first time, I got a chance to board the train, albeit for just 2 minutes. The... more...
scene was that I persuaded my friend to travel in it as he wasn't getting confirmed reservation in any of the trains on 27th August due to heavy rush on the occasion of Rakshabandhan. Actually, he had a RAC ticket in Magadh Express on 28th August but he wanted to go on 27th itself. When he couldn't find any way out, he came to me for help, knowing that I was a railfan and had more knowledge than him in this regard. And then I hatched a plan & started describing about KOAA-ANVT Express, how one of my friend easily got reservation in it & that this was his only ray of hope. Reluctantly he agreed, despite strongly thinking that he was being tricked into a huge conspiracy. I somehow held my laughter and after repeated rounds of persuation, he finally agreed to travel by it and booked a Waitlisted sleeper ticket thereafter. Unfortunately, his ticket got stuck in RAC after charting. I told him to talk to the TTE and ask for a confirm berth in 3A. He did get it later, after paying 400 rupees to the TTE. That day when I went to see him off, I was shocked to find that the train was almost full. I honestly had never expected this. 13132 was as usual, rescheduled that day as well and departed at 7pm. My friend cheerfully waved me good bye, unaware of the consequences ahead. It took him 19:32 hours to cover around 630km, he reached Allahabad at 14:32. Avg speed of the trip comes out to be 32.20kmph. That's the Bullet for you. _/\_ _/\_ #HA
No sir nothing like that happened. Instead he enjoyed the journey - watching many movies on his laptop, sleeping, etc though his family members were very annoyed. His father asked if he was coming by a bullock cart and that he wouldn't allow him to travel by trains in the future. :P :P
Oh yes... I think that I had got confused with that Dhanbad Route Angle. Yes, a train that can connect Gaya and Patna in a single route is surely needed. Rather than extending this supercrowler 13131 to Gaya, IR should connect Kolkata, Gaya & Patna with a single Superfast Intercity Express train that includes Patna Saheb as a stoppage too :) . PS: Pilgrims from Gaya's Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji Gurudwara to Patna Saheb can use such a train for pilgrimage without changing trains.
