Part (2/2) "The Humsafar Mania" Continued from /blog/post/3496006
My Journey from Jharsuguda Road to Jharsuguda Jn
Our thinking capacity affects and things goes topsy turvy in the intense hot whether (45*C) and so does our trust and this time it was the Google Maps whom I had trusted blindly . It was 14:15 in my watch when the Humsafar Express left me on the Platform No. 1 at the Jharsuguda Road Station . There were two platforms here .While browsing Google Maps I had found a road from the Pf
2 side of the station to the main road where I could get the autos to the main station Jharsuguda Jn , where I had to catch my connecting train 07007 SC DBG SPL to BKSC . When I deboarded at PF 1 , some auto drivers gathered around me demanded Rs 100 for JSG , I ignored them and they still insisted me for Rs 50 in a share auto for a mere 2.5 Kms distance . I ignored all their suggestions and went to Pf 2 for the exit as I had seen in the Google Maps and for a shock I found that there was no exit on the Pf 2 side and rather it had a boundary wall . I was just stunned . To my surprise there wasn’t a single person on this Platform. The Humsafar Exp soon departed and the station became empty . There was utmost silence and no autos were then present . It was around 14:30 then . I checked Live station JSGR on NTES then and they displayed “No Trains at Jharsuguda Road JSGR in next 2 Hrs” . I was all alone on the pf no. 2 , the scene was a bit scary too . I then realized that I had made a mistake by not going by the autos. Then suddenly I checked Live station Jharsuguda Jn and found that the train no. 18311 Sambalpur Varanasi Exp is delayed by 40 mins and has crossed Sarla Road station then (40 kms away from Jharsuguda Jn) . 40 kms meant the train would be here in around 30-40 mins , although it didn’t had stoppage here at JSGR but I could take a risk . As the train didn’t had a stop here I couldn’t have the tickets too . I waited for 35 mins , the time was 15:05 , I saw a train hauled by TATA WAM 4 loco coming on the main line and the signal was red . The train eventually stopped on the main line , I crossed the two rly tracks and boarded the general coach , a man on the train helped me to pick my heavy luggage inside the train. After a stop of 10 mins the whistle blewed and the train moved . Within 10 mins I reached Jharsuguda station . I took a great sigh of relief , although this was a bit tensed journey , but still I enjoyed it , also this journey was free of cost .

At Jharsuguda Jn
I had a good lunch at the Yog Sheela Restaurant , near the station . It was a very nice restaurant , they served me a fine Veg Thali at Rs 160 . This time I won’t criticise Google Maps cuz it was because of them I had got here . I had a great railfanning session at the station , saw many trains in the meantime . Nearly spending 3 hrs at the station , My train 07007 arrived on Pf 2 hauled by the green goblin WAG 9 from the AJNI shed at 19:15 , a slight delay of 1.5 hrs . The train departed at 19:20 and gave me a superfast like run all the way till Bokaro Steel City . It didn’t let me felt that I’m travelling in a special train . I finally reached Bokaro at 02:48 AM . This was one of my most memorable journeys of all time . The whole journey from Bhopal to Bokaro Steel City was completed in 33 hrs .
Pls do give the ratings to this trip report and the pics attached .
