WAITING AND WATCHING THE ACTION: The main line, being occupied by a loaded BCNA Rake with SGUJ WDG4 numbered 12504, watches 15657 SDAH-GHY Kanchanjunga Express with MLDT (Alco) WDM3D numbering 11484 sailing pass Aluabari Road Jn. (AUB) after its scheduled halt on a balmy spring evening!!!
How is the crowd in the 2s coach ? Like the Koaa HDB express or more crowded.I have journey from DAKE tmorw .If the train arrived at DAKE early hope it didn't leave early ? Or departure was according to time.
The crowd will be moderate till BWN, entire SBG loop itll remain crowded, more it proceeda towards GHY crowd will reduce. But pls dont be harsh towards pax post MLDT if they purchase GEN tkt & asks for u to allow them sit, because remember its NFR & not ER, here people dont get trains at every 15-30 mts interval,they have no other option than long distant trains, so pls bear with them.

High time that this train is extended end to end upto SCL so that they atleast get a daily direct Kolkata connection.AGTL should get a new Tri weekly Kolkata bound service now as its been quite a long time the capital got connected with BG network.Lot of less important stoppages has to be done away with now.

Why so much Loco "Nautanki" is done by ER and NFR for this train ? Two times loco change and that too within a span of mere 340 km journey ? E Loco till RPH still makes sense , but what about Malda Town Diesel to Diesel Loco change over ?
Most probably, they are using this train to move locos to MLDT shed. Since there are very few originating trains from MLDT, instead of running locos light, they are using this train to get the locos to MLDT shed. A few other trains too have similar e-loco to e-loco and d-loco to d-loco changes en-route to move locos to their home sheds.
Loco sharing arrangement is there at MLDT. Not zonal constraint, but BWN DLS is not sending a new diesel locomotive to SDAH per day; so as the loco goes with 15657, it returns with Gour exp/15658 (need to confirm as it is backdate info).
