My first encounter with one of the most congested Outer/route of Indian Railways...!!
Mughalsarai - Allahabad Section.
Train Onboard :- Mahanagari Express and Vindhyachal - Lucknow Intercity express...!!
Part 1:- Mahanagri Express
I entered this well known section with entering chunar jn. My train waited 15 min for getting clearance. Two frieght were made halt at nearest signal points both of side on Mughalsarai- Allahabad trunk route while i was entering for BSB side.
Here I got start And entered on this route. Train was doing mps and at span of 2-3 mins one train was crossing my train be it either frieght or passenger train.
After a continous run my train were made halt at an unknown location And two frieght crossed me but my train were still not moved. Just for curiosity I came at the gate and saw one train standing just ahead of my train and one was halted at the bacl side.(distance of ~500-800m).
When my train got chance to move ahead other were also moving as it seems from long distance there. Slowly slowly we passed mirzapur and the sequence continued. I left mahanagri express at BDL 15 min late from schedule and while leaving it from fob I saw one train standing just at outer side behind mahanagri.
After 2 mins of existing stn I clearly saw that train crossing BDL station and it was a frieght. Till here I got to know how sequential trains got controlled here with good speed if a distance of 2min a train have with another train.
It was my first time to encounter this super congested route but it was not what SUPER-CONGESTION as they mention, I still have to pass through with more. And it happened with my other leg.. Vindhyachal- Lucknow Intercity.
Part2:- Vindhyachal - lucknow intercity express via ALD.
After having a holy visit to Mata Vindhyavasini I boarded Ice towards ALD. Train left bdl by 16 30 and it gave awesome run till meja road and started after 10 min halt.
Till the time train reached karchana clock was ticking 17 50. Till here I experienced whatever I felt in my last leg with Mahanagari exp.
Now after 15 min halt at karchana train proceeded and by the time it reached cheokki train was made halt for 2 times just before cheokki for 10-10 mins. After crossing cheokki train was halted just before naini and a Frieght came to cheokki from stna side just after our crossing. I saw a train changing tracks towards satna route and made a halt at Naini. It took 15 mins to us to proceed further and here by the clock we were at naini by 18 40.
I thought now I am just 7 KMS away from AlD so will reach in another half an hour max to max.
Trains were crossing us continously and furiously too. Frieght + passengers and the train which we had an encounter at naini was kashi express.
We were halted at naini for 15 mins and then we proceeded and when we reached on Naini bridge it appears that train will not going to halt. I have seen here many many blogs of members explaining their nightmare here, so i was pretty much happy but this wentby next mint as train brought to halt at naini bridge. It was evening time and summer was already on peak..me and my fellow pax were too much thirsty but there were no way to go as we were standing on bridge.
After three consecutive moving and halting on bridge itself I felt uncomfortable and decided to leave the train on naini bridge itself. And after leaving train with taking every care I crossed the nanini bridge by walk. When I reached nearby the engine side I was completely amused and shocked.. A train was halted on the same track just 30 mtr ahead. After crossing this train I saw same sequence ahead with two trains and all were passenger trains and all were moving by manual signaling by flags while from down track trains were moving at 70+ speed.
I got down from the route to road side. Had some refreshments to recharge myself. Then for a six kilometre ride by road I had taken by rickshaw which costed me 70rs.
By the time I reached at ALD jn it was already 8:05 and I just searched for Vindhyachal lko intercity and found that it was about to come status and in Acutal it came on 8:40. A total 2hrs taken from naini jn which were not in thought.
While on naini bridge I spotted on train just behind me and after coming to ALD jn I thought there were many others who were following my train just like I was following some.
This was my biggest congestion spotted ever in all of my travel.
Thanks for reading.

Sending spare crew is only done for Rajdhani/Duronto/GR/Yuva trains that too from ALD to MGS the crews are sent spare sometimes by 14056 mostly by 12791 then from MGS to CNB they are booked for these trains and the next day they are booked for CNB MGS in these trains once they reach MGS they are again sent spair to ALD but this is only case with these high priority trains for others having no crew change at ALD like SK VS etc MGS books crew which has come from ald with some train any crew can be booked but those who have come directly from cnb to mgs are only booked for ald in order to make them get complete rest. Usually crews booked from ald to mgs ( mail trains ) are sent back to cnb and from cnb back to ald.
ald car passenger has 2 on duty crews who work for ald car and two spair crews who work for car ald the next day.

sir, it's not necessary that 12802 will have crew change at MGS only, it depends on crew booking lobby @ CNB, if they book a crew who has come all way from MGS the crew will be booked only upto ALD and not beyond that. the same story is for every train. ALD-MGS-CNB-ALD or ALD-CNB-MGS-ALD or sometimes ALD-CNB-ALD & ALD-MGS-ALD all depends on the train for which they are booked.
