Some things just get stuck in our head. We feel we need to find the answer for it.
As a railfan this was one train that always was sort of stuck in my head.
My question was why run this train to this small town in the night? Why not to HPT-BAY which always gets crowd. CTA people too wont use it after reaching JRU in the middle of the night, with no buses available from JRU to CTA at that time, so why?
I saw this UBL-JRU Pass's train board once in Hubballi few years back having RSA with Miraj Pass.
56911 and 56909 are both same. But IRI shows both having different departures with same time arrival at UBL. Dont know why they have two different numbers. Do you know if any of the coaches of UBL-JRU--SBC night passenger train's coaches are left behind at JRU at 22:30 when moving towards SBC ?? Those coaches might be called as 56911.
No. None are left behind. The entire rake gets attached ahead of HPT Pass (on PF 1) and the UBL Pass loco hauls it to SBC. That HPT pass loco is left behind at JRU
RSA updated now. Clear TB pictures are available on train page of UBL MRJ pass.
Miraj - Hubballi - JRU - Hubballi - Miraj - Parli - Miraj - PM - repeat -- is the pattern
Great work. Thanks for remembering my post.
Before a train use to run Hubli Bijapur Sawari gadi spl exp which used to run on slot what today's UBL SUR intercity exp runs. And this Hubli Bijapur exp use to run with those CR parli train rakes and they cancelled the train extend SUR GDG upto UBL and that train might started running as UBL JRU passenger after cancel of UBL BJP exp.
