1.Old no 3029/3030 ,Converted to SuperFast on 03/06/2006.

It's a damn good train for railfanning especially after Durgapur. If one wishes to see high speed actions , furious overtakes by Rajdhanis, cat & mouse chase by some late running trains or fabulous crossings with some reputed trains then he must travel by this train. Railfans like me will surely love to have a ride in this train.

1. VERY MUCH NEEDED TO ADD MORE AC CHAIR CAR COACHES & NON AC CHAIR CAR RESERVED COACHES TO COAL FIELD EXPRESS & BLACK DIAMOND EXPRESS. IT IS URGENTLY REQUIRED TO CHANGES THE COACHES OF THESE TRAINS TO LHB COACHES. DURING THIS SUMMER TIME THESE TRAINS BECOME A UNIT OF HELL.
2. IN THE EVENING THERE IS NO SHATABDI EXPRESS. WHY NOT RE-INTRODUCE DOUBLE DECKER AC EXPRESS AS "DD COALFIELD SUPER DELUXE EXPRESS"! MAKE THE TRAIN MORE SPEEDIER AND IT CAN BE EXTENDED UP TO GOMOH. THE FIRST STOPPAGE WILL BE DURGAPUR. FROM HWH IT WILL DEPART AT 5.30 PM. It will maintain a speed in such a way that by 10pm to 10.15pm, it will reach Gomoh.

Decker Express will make double profit. Snacks & Dinner should be available. Actually we need this kind of train in the evening. Upgrading Coalfield to AC Double Decker is the best marketing myopia for ER. THE LEFT OUT ICF BOGIES CAN BE USED AS ORDINARY PASSENGER TRAIN FOR DAILY PASSENGERS OF BURDWAN, ASANSOL & CHATTARANJAN.
3. For Black Diamond Express in the morning, needs LHB coaches immediately amd more AC coaches needed. Why there are countless general coaches, if there are 24 coaches, at least 10 coaches should be reserved including AC coaches! The train needs to be more speedier and it should be extended up to Bokaro. Easily it can go to Bokaro. Unnecessary wasting a longtime at Dhanbad shed. They never clean the coaches, most third class zone is ECR. Railways should take initiative that breakfast & snacks should be available at this prestigious train as before. TRY TO IMPLEMENT OUR SUGGESTION AT EARLIEST. IT WILL FETCH REVENUES. HOPE I DON'T HAVE TO SUBMIT THE SAME TO THE SECRETARY OF HON'BLE PRIME MINISTER.
