PS: Title of the meet as given by PKV ji.
from left to right in clockwise direction.... Siddharth (aka BMTC), Krishna (aka Circaar Express), Amit, DB, SV Iyer, Shashank.
So here comes the meet of few like-minded people who have similar likes and passions (fortunately all present were admins). Number wise, this could be the largest ever congregation of admins at one place. A week ago, it was just a thought that striked me and Tejas. Later Iyer Sir's visit made us to really think of a meet (not particularly Admin meet). So it was triggered by Iyer Sir and planned and co-ordinated by myself and DB
Sir. All decided to meet up at SBC at 4 pm on 14th April. As it was a weekend so it was easy for us to make it. Many people arrived as early as 3:30 pm and myself arrived at SBC at 4:15. though I couldn't notice any of them. Unfortunately Tejas could not joined the party due to illness. So at 5 pm we moved towards the ticket counter and Shashank purchased PF ticket for all of us so that we can roam freely in the station premises. Noticed the Digital Display PNR Chart board. For the tiem being it was showing chart for SBC-KCG SF Exp. some observations made were... extra 3AC coach was attached to clear the rush. till GNWL 136 and CKWL 14 in 3AC got cleared. in SL till GNWL 190 got cleared and GNWL 360 got RAC. Next we moved on to PF#1 and to our surprise CBE-LTT Express was just moving out towards LTT... almost 2 hrs late... captured a last mintue shot. On PF#2 SBC-KCG SF Exp was standing much before its departure time. We moved on to the FOB so that we could get much better view of all the occupants at diff platforms. Sadly, all the trains were lying on the loop line.. no yard. few of them were SBC-NDLS Karnataka SF Exp, SBC-MAS Exp, SBC-CAPE Exp. Red hot YPR-MYS Exp was waiting for departure. It was shining more then Rajdhani. Captured some beautiful shots of Alcos chugging out to loop line. Felt pity to see Sleeper SBC-NZM Rajdhani. yes, a full 8 SL coach rake was attached to EOG of Rajdhani. dirty looking Rajdhani was standing sadly in hot sun eating dust all the day. Aaaahhh!!
