hoooooooh!!!!! Reached Dhanbad sharp at 11:01 a.m. (10 minutes early)
Anyhow i just managed to catch this train which was 1 minute early at Durgapur station.
.
This train is one of the most punctual trains of India...... i travelled in this train several times and i never saw it getting late more then 20 minutes.
.

This train is best suited for those who want to catch their jobs and for students.
For passengers, moving for north of Howrah interchanging from trains like Gitanjali, Howrah Mail, Azad Hind, Samarsata, etc. this is the best suited train and Siuri-Howrah Hool Epress (as the second option)

Very popular train between Howrah and Dhanbad... it used to run with Non-AC DD Coaches some decades back. I feel that it's timings are something that make the train an attractive option for Inter City Chair Car travel apart from the Howrah - Ranchi Shatabdi. ER should LHBfy this train by replacing this ICF Rake with some single decker LHB coaches (both Non-AC and AC) + some LHB double decker coaches from the old LHB AC DD Rake that is languishing in the Howrah Rail Yard :-)

ER was not getting any zone which would purchase the Howrah-Dhanbad DD Express.........so a number of coaches can be utilised here.

can you update the #TB

Just for information to all members - 22387/8 Black Diamond SF express is an ECR train & not ER. ECR has recently asked Railway Board for LHB coaches for this train. They expect to receive this rake shortly. If LHB fied this train will be the first Intercity service to have LHB rake in the eastern zone. The only drawback will be - this train is always overcrowded & if there is no middle doors then there will be chaotic scenes at intermediate staions. Hope the LHB ICE rakes are provided with the middle doors for the convenience of the passengers.

This is the most punctual train ever...........you can't find a single red mark in the picture.
SO, THIS IS THE BEST OPTION TO REACH Howrah to Barddhman, Durgapur, Asansol, Dhanbad.
This train always reaches before time...........
best suited for those who want to catch their jobs and for students.

Once the father of non superfasts, now a beginner level SF, this train has an awesome run between stations and you can really enjoy the repeated acceleration and decceleration.. However screaming vendors in 2S is a nuisance often.. Runs well, maybe a few minutes late if not bang on time in most cases.. Don't expect to get vacant seats in stations enroute..
