Yes, I remember. The then RM Mr. Lalu had announced about the DFC concept in the 2006 IR Budget. It was supposed to be ready for freight train operations by 2008. But this flagship project of IR went into cost overruns due to immense delays as work went on a snail's place. Just around 1+ Kms of track work was completed between Dehri-On-Sone and Durgauti (Durgawati). Let's see when the constructed tracks between Dehri-On-Sone and Kanpur get operational. Successful trials of a WAG-9 hauled freight train have taken place some months back between Dehri and Sasaram I suppose (DFC FB Page also has its pic)... :)

Re# 2151388-10            Tags   Past Edits
You are right. There are some things that I've gone through on IRI through members' blog posts, news items, etc. regarding EDFC as follows:-
1) IR is trying to work on straightening of platforms at stations like Mirzapur along with the tracks (both loop and escape lines) to remove PSR. Track renewal work at GMO was also heard about to finish PSR of 30 Kmph & upgrade trains' MPS to 130 Kmph (For AC) and 110 Kmph (For Non-AC).

2) IR wants to make the entire Howrah - Gaya - Mirzapur - Kanpur - Delhi Route 100% free of manned/unmanned level crossing gates and work seems to have been started in the 1st phase between Mughalsarai and Ghaziabad through ROB/FOB constructions to remove TSR. FOB construction work at GMO is also pending to finish PSR of 30 Kmph & upgrade trains' MPS to 130 Kmph (For AC) and 110 Kmph (For Non-AC).
3) IR plans to replace Manual Signalling with Automatic Block Signalling System (ABSS) between Allahabad and Kanpur for better train movement.
4) All the above points are meant to synchronize present HWH-GAYA-MZP-NDLS Old Tracks with parallel EDFC Modern tracks between Dankuni Jn and Khurja Jn. Abhishek Jaiswal Sir on IRI told me that signalling work on ALD-CNB stretch is left while its tracks won't be shared with platforms of stations like Hathras Jn, Tundla Jn, Aligarh Jn, Khurja Jn, etc. en route. So freight and passenger trains may use EDFC tracks if they have a Non-Stop MGS-ALD or ALD-CNB Run :)

* DFC is a very old concept world wide, many DFCs were operational in many countries. Due to the industrial boom, IR was getting bumper incremental loading, IR decided to go for construction of DFCs in 2006 to meet the future loadings.
* Minimum of 4-5 yrs are required for construction of a corridor, announcing DFC in 2006 and planning to operate trains in 2 yrs is impractical. Practically the announcement mostly remained on papers and actual work was very slow.
* During the tenure of Mr Prabhu, contract awarding & construction
work picked up speed.

Shining snap.. is the rake repainted or just a few years old? :)

It was POHed rake sir

At last there's something to be heard of this much delayed train. I was thinking about it on a Sunday evening and now this awesome post. Any chances of this train having commercial stoppages at Jalandhar Cantt Jn and Pathankot Cantt ?! :)

Dear IRI Members, especially my dear friends,
I think that in the past 2 to 3 days I've vented out quite a lot of my frustration regarding stoppage issues for Superfast Trains, especially the Durgiana Express on IRI. I still feel that going for additional halts will lower the schedule quality of such trains and its a violation of my right to get worth of the "SUPERFAST CHARGES" I am paying as part of IR's revenue like thousands or probably lacs of Indian Passengers.

I put this issue to rest and now I'll only restrict my public blog forum posts to the photos/videos and trip reports from any train journey via the Mughalsarai Route (Grand Chord or Main Line). If my temperamental behavior has offended any IRI Member, especially from Sasaram or rest of Bihar then my unconditional apologies to them.
Namaste and Good Night _/\_
Happy Indian Rail Fanning and IRI Blogging/PNR Posting :')

Itne varsho se IRI par :) karta tha
Itni jyada expectation hi kisi se na rakhiye ki dil toot jaye, chahe wo insaan ho ya train😁😁 Political establishment k saamne humare aapke jaise mango people ki koi aukaat nahi, wo jaise nachayenge waise naachna padega but jo kisi k liye bura hai wo kisi aur k liye accha bhi hota hai. Jinko fayda hota hai wo chahe kaisa bhi kadam ho use support hi karte hai. Itna soft hearted hone ka jamana gaya, bhrast yug hai bhaiya. Muskuraiye aap iri per hai😂😂

Thanks for appreciating Sir :)
Though I have not visited many blogs of u by the words u penned down it seems to me Ur a guy who is genuinely rising the exorbitant/incorrectful charging of superfast category on mango man and its unnecessary halting.so I salute with Ur matter "additional halts will lower the schedule quality of such trains ".I too have rised such points on scr,swr trains but difference is Ur zone is different.so I request to pls continue blogging with Ur genuine right of rising such necessary issues.

Yes, need a detox! :')
Hello Sir,
I do not know you personally and didnt quite read your posts. But I would certainly want to share my view with you, lot of things catch our attention and railwaysis certainly one of the common ones and thats why we are all here.
Having said that, its unfair to ourselves that one thing gets our attention to a point that
it affects us personally more than anything else. And for good balance to prevail, keeping low or taking breaks once in a while really does good be it with iri or anything else and certainly restores perspective or give a fresh one altogether.
Appreciate your decision to keep low for a while, sometimes that really is all we need, balance albeit with imperfections. Good luck sir :)
