Part 2
I had come to see off two relatives in the last two months and on both occasion I noticed the train left a little late. the signal turned green at 1716 hrs, but the train didnt move till 1722. It was telling DQ to move ahead and not bother it. It crawled out of CST and I could see a fast local towards kalyan was waiting for us. as soon as the train got to the fast track, it just zoomed to 80+ in 2 mins and by chinchpokli it was doing over 90. crossed dadar at the same speed and then it went beserk. the WCAM 3 with this short rake, were just toying around, and i for once didnt like it to speed like that. slowed down a bit around ghatkopar and nahur and then slowly crossed

thane. You could feel that it was getting irritated by the DQ. i could hardly get to full speed for 5 kms and then the DQ would be an issue. reached kalyan at 1810. 53 kms and 48 mins. not bad in mumbai rush hour. while crossing kalyan could see the tail of DQ and it seemed the duronto can now fly. But shortly after crossing that long tunnel, it slowed down again and this time the culprit was a local. another boxn rake came in between but the duronto swept it aside. Meanwhile got my snack. a cheese sandwich, a kachuri, a sweet, two eclairs, frooti, tea coffee. by 1840 soup got served and i knew i was in for an early dinner. it was raining outside and it was looking beautiful. the train reached kasara at 1902 hrs. Just as we entered the gitanjali towards cst left. it started drizzling and the train left by 1908 hrs. slowly moved thru the ghats and it was awesome. Maharashtra is truly splendid during monsoons. the mountains had cloud cover and once the train went inside the clouds. reached igatpuri at 1930 hrs. Got down and saw tapovan express leaving from the other platform.
