Cycle-Rickshaw, Auto-Rickshaw and taxis are available outside PF1 and PF2 side.. Cycle rickshaw is a bit costlier than auto-rickshaw as auto rickshaw are available on sharing. regarding taxi, mostly big vehicles like Bolero, scorpio, sumo and jeep are available.. One of two ambassador cars are also there.. The rates are a bit high, and need to be bargained upto 10-20 percent less..

the distance from Rjpb to Pnbe can't be counted for that, because it can hardly go over 10-15 KMPH for 2 kms and has to halt as soon as it departs.. Whereas when it enters NCR its already at 80-90 KMPH as you can see it covered the Jep-Arw in 4 mins for 7 kms.. Whereas it was at EOCM at 2036 hrs almost 36 mins before time..

You can check all trains including Rajdhani, they all do that.. But it doesn't means that it should be delayed.. Did you noticed the overtake of yuva express, it crossed Ald at 4 am and SK was at Jigna that time a distance of 63 kms was not sufficient to keep it ahead upto Mgs..

But what was the avg from Subedarganj to Mgs.. 2 am would have been the time when it would have crossed subedarganj and 4 hrs and 53 mins it took to enter ECR, an Avg of around 30 KMPH.. What about that?

I did doorplating on many trains.. Having MPS of 110 KMPH and did doorplating on Rajdhani too.. O n 13 sep i did doorplating in SK too and found that the speed was much above the 110 and below 130 KMPH, would have been around 120 KMPH, not more than that..

Why it should not happen. When it can do it once, then why not other time.. Yesterday Vikramshila was allowed to overtake Mahabodhi in Cnb-Ald section, then why was Sampoorna Kranti made to trail Mahabodhi and Mahanagri.. Both halted at Bdl and Mzp and also Mahanagri halted at Chunar.. What does it show, they are not willing to run it on time.. It crossed Subedarganj around 0200 hrs but was halted until Mahanagri departed at 0230 hrs.. Why? It would have easily gone Karchana or Bheerpur in that time also none among Mahanagri and sampoorna Kranti would have been disturbed.. And the overtake by Yuva was totally mindless.. A gap of 63 kms for the next 90 kms was also not maintained.. Maine kabhi bhi 12393 ke late hone ke baare me nahi kaha, because it runs almost fine throughout the year barring some exception and the fact that 12394 reaches...
Patna late and it has to be rescheduled.. But the main problem is with 12394.. I am saying not 84 but after it maintains 75-80 upto Ald.. Then at least 55-60 should be maintained in Ald-Mgs.. So that it reaches by 0430-0500 hrs and can very well reach before 8 am.. Seen many times it being done..

Yuva departed Ald at 0401 hrs..
Sk departed Jigna at 0405 hrs.
Distance 63 kms..
Yuva departed Mgs at 0701 hrs.
SK arrived Mgs at 0711 hrs..
was trailing Mahanagri and Mahabodhi..
Mahabodhi was overtaken by Vikramshila.. Reason - its non stop and Mahabodhi has stops at Ald, Bdl, Mzp.
Then why not SK which is also non stop allowed to overtake..
SK reached Subedarganj around 2 am, but departed after Mahanagri which departed Ald around 0230 hrs. Why it was halted..
Why should we not say delay was intentional as Mahanagri halts at Bdl, Mzp and Chunar.. Loss of 30 mins for waiting at outer of these stations too..

Even this year too, it 20-30 times.. Arriving Pnbe and Rjpb before time and about 100-110 times arriving before 0830 hrs.. But what I would like to say that even if it reaches Mgs at 0500 hrs which is around 1 h and 30 min late with an avg of around 70 KMPH, then also it would arrive at around 0800 hrs at Rjpb.. That is a point to think..

So many times, its halted at subedarganj to wait for some slow trains like Mahanagri and Ltt-Rjpb to depart and then they make it trail them which affects its schedule pretty badly.. Some thought on it to be given. I have seen all those trains being overtaken by Vikramshila but SK was made to train them..

Even Poorva, Vikramshila and Jan sadharan do upto 115 only in night from Ald to Tdl some times but not for longer periods, but SK did it for quite a long time.. As the gap from Jan sadharan was once around 50 kms, but it came down to 10-15 kms as it reached around Kanpur.. But at Ald it was halted for 10-15 mins when I saw a train skipping Ald from other side at around 50 KMPH.. And again the gap from Jan sadharan was maintained.. And Jan sadharan overtook Pune-Patna and SK was made to trail it till Mgs which cost it precious time and delayed it..

One more thing.. There is no congestion in Ndls-Ald section in its timing.. As upto Tdl it completes all its overtakes till where its avg is just 70 KMPH.. Overtakes Lichchavi, Poorva and Amarpali Express.. And Ajmer Sealdah departs after it from Tdl.. GR and Rajdhanis have a gap of around 50-100 KMs from it.. It gets free run from Tdl to Cnb and from Cnb to Ald.. So maintaining that speed when the tracks are that clear makes no problem.. As the freights are already placed in loops for Rajdhani overtakes.. From Ald to Mgs it trails only those trains which should pass before Rajdhanis.. Trains like Pune-Patna, Mum-Hwh, Mahanagri, Ltt-Rjpb, Azimabad, Parasnath, Pratap, Cstm-Rjpb, Ananya, Toofan, Barmer-Guwahati should all cross Mgs from 12 am to 3 am.. But they all get delayed and block its way. But Vikramshila overtakes most of them and SK is made to trail...
them.. One more thing - it has a scheduled overtake of Jan Sadharan before Ald, but its not allowed by NCR on many occasion, whereas the trains keep running at a distance of 10-20 kms upto Mgs.. And its only overtaken after Mgs.. But it affects the timing of SK as the PF is blocked by JS and it has to wait for 20-25 mins at outer..

Yes, If we go by sections, then its most disturbed in Subedarganj - Mughal Sarai.. It almost accumulates all its delay in that section only.. 3 hrs delay in a section of 153 kms can never be justified. Whatever the consequences may be.. An avg of 30 KMPH in about 150 kms stretch is not at all justified.. I wish it maintains at least 50 in that, that will also take it to Mughal sarai before 5 am.. Which will take it to Patna right time..

Whenever you arrive new delhi station between 21.15 to 23.05 always avoid calling your driver or family member to pick you up instead book a radio cab as there is a huge rush and traffic jam at paharganj and ajmeri gate sides as there are 8 shatabdis arriving during this duration. Except shatabdi arrivals there are other exp, mails, ice arrivals and departures.
