God knows what IR considers while speeding up. Any way the train cannot take less than 3 hrs to travel from KDJR to DPS according to the present speed restrictions. Present time at KDJR is 5:00 am and so it can reach DPS only around 8:00 am (i.e. 7:45 am - 8:15 am). See that train no. 18415 BBN-PURI Exp has been alloted 54 mins time to travel from BSPX to JRLI, a distance of 10 kms. IR must have thought something while designing its time table. Train no. 18516 PURI - BBN Exp has been given 1 min time to reverse its loco at DPS Station. What did IR think and keep 1 min time to reverse loco? Actually it daily takes 30 mins to reverse loco. Its arrival in NTES and PRS Website is given 14:54 and departure is 14:55. But in DPS Station, it is written in the... more...
station that it shall arrive at 14:54 and depart at 15:24. How about these differences? Which is right? That written in DPS Station or that given in NTES and PRS website?
From 28th Mar17, kdjr to dps will be less than 2hrs. 12743 is coming. Why time taking, beco'z kdjr to bspx, it's busy route for freight trains and doubling is not completed between PJNR & JRLI. So it's difficult to give green signal to any train from both directions of this uncompleted section. Then bspx to dps, it's curvy route. 10+ curves are there, and Express train's speed limit u know, so it's late. But now,we can happy to know about increased limit between kdjr-bspx-dps section. 12743 is for start. Picture is... more...

We can't take it fully granted the timings are not updated after completing the journey even though they are late by 10-15 mins in final leg. Few days back checked the timings of the same train it completed RJY vskp in 2hrs 40 mins overtaking chennai vskp exp which took normal time of 3hrs 20 mins. Last week godavari with numerous stops overtaking ratnachal with lesser stops.
