Scene 4

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After a brief session of railfanning I came back to my seat to have some more sleep as I could not find anything to eat at Wadi so sleeping was better option, but found one aged aunty with his son sitting at my SL berth with curtains pulled full to cover their privacy, like it was instead their berth :(
Seeing this I sat on the other berth with fellow passengers. While speaking to them I found that

we all 8 in that bay were CK passengers. OMG!
My mobile was almost discharged but I could not find a single charging point free. In another bay there were few guys who were having a handy switch board with 4 sockets... They gave me one to charge my mobile. But the voltage was damn low and it took an hour for my mobile battery to go up half way through. There I came to know they were 7 coming from Madurai and they all were CK passengers. LOL :P --- 15 CK in B2 only. Amazing!
We have reached Gulbarga by now where I bought some bananas to satisfy my hunger to some extent. I was just wandering near the loco to ask LP what happened to WDM, suddenly the ALP honked for take off signal. I rushed back to my seat. At 11.22am we left from Gulbarga almost 1 hr 40 mins late. The WDG was chugging hard and accelerating swiftly @ 100 kmph. The chugging sound echoing through trees nearby was mesmerizing. Now it was time to get fresh up. :O) :O) super clean toilets.... I checked all the toilets in B2 and B1 and all were super clean like people had never touched them since the train started from NCJ. WDG4 was blasting like hell through lush green fields under cool cloudy weather but suddenly it got a no go signal at Sawalgi. after a 10 min halt I went to the through line to see what is coming in... at a far distance I saw some huge black smoke cloud. Bingo!! It was damn alco chugging at the gradient. I prepared myself to capture the shot. It was really beautiful sight to see the repainted orange-blue GY shed WDM 3A smoking badly and rising from the horizon on the gradient but sorry couldn't capture the scene. Within secs it came off blasting and shaking me with its force... it was a 16601R GY shed WDM 3A hauled 11027 Mumbai CST-Chennai Mail raging towards Gulbarga for its next stop.
After the breathtaking crossing, I went for some refreshment and then slept off for a while as Solapur was 2 hrs run.

To be Continued... plz bear with me :)
