Trip Report:
After spending a good two days at my home, had to return to my karma bhoomi, vadodara (BRC for railfans) on Monday i.e. The republic day of our country. Booked ticket some 20 days in advance. Berth alotted to me was 48 in B2 coach. From that very day mind was just thinking on which kind of rake has been alotted to this new train of WR.
BDTS some 45 mins in advance, as every railfan wants to have some time in hand before boarding his train for railfanning stuffs. As soon as i reached another newbie of WR BDTS-PNBE was looping in pf6 of BDTS. The coaches were in pathetic condirion and a sense of gloominess sorround me about my train. Soon it departed. 10 mins later the King 12951 announced itself at PF4 with a ear deafning honk. Doing the honors was WAP7 30269 from GZB.
After the King left announcement was made for my train and WAM4 frok BRC shed looped in with my train, and guess a brand new rake with manufatured from 2012 and 2014 were in consist of the 17 coacher. After 7 mins train departed and cleared all the loops. WAM4 then unleashed and started going beserk with Vasai road, bhayender all literally torn apart. It slowed down on Vaitarna bridge which have a technical speed restriction of 30kmph. The sunset on Vaitarna river was too soothing. Soon after it again WAM4 showed it class. Darkness surrounded, and it blasted Dahanu road apart. The train continued its run contunously till Vapi where it reached ahead of time by 6mins. After a 8 - 9 mins halt again it went on a rampage. The speed was just terrific with the whole coach shaking and shievring against the power of WAM4. Reached Surat again before time by 10 mins and it halted for 10mins at Surat. Sooon my dinner was given by onboard staffs after the train left surat. Crossed tapti river and then went on to have dinner.
After Surat, the run was decent till Narmada bridge just before Bharuch. Crossed the mighty Narmada bridge while i was footplating. The train was looped in PF5 while the main line was left for deputy king. After a wait of 7mins deputy kong arrived behind another P7 of GZB. Soon after its departure our train also got starter and it was chasing deputy king. It crawled from Visamitri to BRC junction. Till Vishvamitri it had run at awesome speed.
It was looped into PF6 at BR junction. Deputy king was stationed at PF3 bamg on time. After getting down from train I made sure to have a look on monster WAM4 which did honors of my train, took a snap of it and just said two words for the monster - Amzing bro.
Speed : Hats off to the speed. 9/10
Punctuality : 10/10, you people have to believe, yes its 10out of 10
Food : Not amzing but good could have been bit better. 8/10
Cleanlieness and maintenance : 9/10 Toilet were clean and dry. Coaches were clean enough with freshner doing its job nicely, onboard staffs were good and helpful. Chargers were working. Washbasin were not clean enough
Overall : 9/10
Waiting for your comments
