Loco was ED WAP4...........Super fast but strange thing happens.in dindigul=madurai line......I enterd MS at 5.55....As my ticket was rac 56 and i was sitting in my seat train started with ed wap 4 in a terrific speed .Reached tpj sharply at 12.45 and loco was changed to GOC WDP 3A Reached dindigul at 2.45 with a delay and here madurai division does a strange thing to this train.....All madurai bound trains will run in one line and dindgul bound trains in another line....i.e in 60 km stretch 50 km the two tracks(up towards cennai and down towards madurai) come nearby and just 5 kms these tracks divide ....In which this train was sent in another track(were up trains line) and was stopped for 1 hr in that line inorder to make pearl city and ananthapuri to overtake..and i was seeing that the other line was not there but i heard...
a chugging sound farway and i guessed it must be ananthapuri and ,pearl city and pothigai finally reached madurai at mrng 5.45 with a huge delay of 2 hrs.....making way to other trains.......But ed wap 4 did good job......:(

when there is a double track, why a sf train was allowed to overtake even by a normal exp (anantapuri).
sounds like irritating.
atleast it should have happened in mdu...

i think even double line / single line this overtakes r not necessary as this train is SF nt having that much halts too.
