Hi all, This is my trip report on the Recently LHBFied 22159 Mumbai Chennai Express

The Day begins with me reaching CSMT at around 10:45AM and first i spot 82356 Patna Suvidha Express, proceeding that i waited until 12pm for Chennai Express's Rake to be shunted in CSMT PF9 Which was what i was expecting, but in last moment it turned out that they changed the Platform to 16 which had everyone rush towards it, and it wasn't until 13:30, about a delay of 45mins already when the rake was Finally Shunted
on PF 16, with the Lead Loco being a BSL WAP4 22636, Hauling my 22159 upto Chennai. 1/?

After Departure from CST, The train Picked up Speed and Arrived Dadar well behind schedule, had a good 3 minute halt and departed, same pattern for Thane where it had around 5 minute halt, and at Kalyan, I was fortunate to be in 3E, since this train sees so much crowd in 3E itself, i was only thinking about how the Passengers in the Only Two Sleeper Coaches and the Two General Coaches were able to handle the crowd, the Third GS was Reserved for RMS itself. Anyhow the train departed Kalyan, and after a thorough run we reached Karjat where we crossed some other train which i forgot. In any case, the Run upto Pune was Average with train delay
being over 1hr 15mins...

The Run through Ghat Section was average, we reached Lonavala around 4pm, and after departure we crossed NCJ CSMT EXP lead by KYN WAP7. after this we didnt see much crossing except for few freights, and few loop skips of the stations between Lonavala and Pune. Begdewadi was a slow skip. And we reached Khadki by 05:08pm and departed by 05:10pm with a 2 min halt. we reached Pune by 05:40pm, to only depart by 06:10pm, a 30 min halt. at Pune me and my co passengers had tea. At pune
we also got overtaken 12157 Pune Solapur Hutatma Express.
