I had a 2A reservation[SU berth]. The coach was clean and good. The train started off slowly and stopped for 20 mins at Utratia[a co passenger mistook it for Raebareily and nearly got a heart attack when I told him that we were still in LKO]. It was getting night, so I slept[later I heard... more...

I went back to sleep only to awake at 0845 hrs near Gaya[two foreigners deboarded at Gaya, I presume they'll never take any other Indian train again :p] It was 32 hrs late till now[also, who books NDLS-GAYA in Neelachal]. Post Gaya, there was MPS action until we were stopped at Parsipur and humiliated when Durgiana Exp OT us. Furthur were we trolled when the crawler Dhanbad - Allapuzha OT us in Jharkhand.We went at a decent speed after that crossing Koderma, Bokaro and TATA in the process.

It (Konark) had covered up some gap till BAM and everyone predicted it will reach... more...
BBS at 5:45a.m but the fog in Odisha again slowed it down and it reached BBS at 6:15a.m... By that time BBS JS had already departed..
