Indeed a Good initiative.
Hereafter, all door plating pics and videos will be subject to deletion. Yes, many people do and will continue to take such dangerous videos for posting on YouTube, Instagram and other such apps. Such apps will never discourage this practice, as it is good for to their business. However, on this site and also the FmT app, we are now actively discouraging this practice. In the FmT app, there’s a prominent message making users aware of this and they have to explicitly agree to this condition before posting pics. Any future Unsafe videos/pics may be marked to FMs for deletion. Safely taken pics/videos through window, etc. are allowed. All safe pics are allowed.

this will lead to loss of interest and disappointment, and members may leave the app/site. That’s fine.

This step is not expected to discourage this practice as users will continue to take dangerous pics/videos for their monetized YouTube channels and deaths/mishaps will continue to happen.

As far as this small site is concerned, we just wish to do our part with a clear conscience.

Iss liye iss route se jaane ka mann nahi karta mera.
Waise bhi Vikramshila Express ki iss taraf lagi padi hai. Kisi Premium Train ka unscheduled halt mila toh "Staff" ban ke AC Coaches mein ghus jaayenge. Howrah Duronto aise hi barbaad hui hai.
Inn sab mein mujhe NCR best lagta hai 😂, no clear route ya congestion ka bahana bana ke halt hi nahi deta. Jo ukhaadna hai ukhaad lo 😂

Pune to Prayagraj Journey Date 4th May 2022
Final Part 3 (Bhopal- Prayagraj) by Dr Ambedkar Nagar Prayagraj Express.
Had a confirmed reservation in Rewanchal Express but had to reach my Village early so booked in this train, got RAC and upon boarding TTE allotted me a Full Lower Berth.
Only 1 AC 2 Tier Coach in the entire train. Curtains and Bedrolls were
there, Maintainence was decent enough. The Toilets towards Sleeper Coaches were stinking hard as Sleeper Passengers were happily using it. Told TTE about it at Chattarpur, he had the toilets cleaned through OBHS and the vestibule door closed.
To my surprise during Loco Reversal at Khajuraho, the Diesel Locomotive was still attached to the Electric Locomotive when it came for reversal and it went all the way till Prayagraj with us.
This train has humongous Slack. Had a good 1 hour halt at Khajuraho Junction and a good 45 minute halt at both Udaipura and Chattarpur for crossings.
Slept off after Khajuraho as I had a busy next day.
Before time at Prayagraj Junction outer even after departing late from a long halt at Naini Junction.
Didn't click much pictures at Prayagraj as my Cab was waiting to drop me at my Village.

Had some Samosa, Omelette and Egg Rice from Bina Junction. I can tell you with surety that this stuff is Waaaaaaaay better than Rajdhani food, truly phenomenal especially the Samosa.
Egg Rice was highly spicy and well made. By the time I had tasted the food, train had already started otherwise I'd have definitely purchased more.
I seriously suggest you guys try these if you get a chance at Bina Junction, i wouldn't be against halt of Rajdhani at Bina Junction if food like this gets loaded for passengers 😂
attaching some pictures of Sanchi Stupa clicked from my Seat in Moving Train.

Attaching some pictures of Sant Hirdaram Nagar Station.
Doesn't even look like it's an alternative Station for State Capital of Madhya Pradesh.
Really all the Heat, Loneliness etc makes it look like a Station of Wild West in USA 😂.
Gets alive when a train approaches.

Pune to Prayagraj Journey Date 3rd May 2022
Part 2 (Mumbai- Bhopal) by Aapki Humaari Punjab Mail. /blog/post/5340567
Nice maintenance, better than Konark Express and some other CR based Normal/Superfast Express Services.
HUMONGOUS booking for and from Bhopal, Vidisha and Gwalior- train almost empties out and gets filled at these stations. Good boarding from Manmad and Nashik.
Curtains provided, tried pantry car food- surprisingly hot and well made.
Some rakes are in opposite direction, saw Firozpur Mumbai CSMT Punjab Mail at Bhopal Junction outer while going by DADN PRYG Express- the whole rake was reversed.

It's Ok
Sorry wasn't able to find time for IRI for some days. Continuous official and unofficial trips. 🥲
Wow 🔥
Finally seeing Rewanchal Express in LHB is truly phenomenal experience ❤️
Now majorly Jabalpur Intercity and REWA DADN Express remain to get LHB after that we'd be set.
maintainence standards remain same.
Sad to see Rewanchal Express board taken out in favour of Rani Kamlapati Rewa Express Board.
