2013. On speaking to wife i was adivsed that i visit the Rahu temple at Thirunageswaram which is 6 kms from Kumbakonam Railway station. Wife , Son and me did visit this temple last year /blog/post/383735 . Without wasting anytime i tried for a tatkal in Mannai Express and what i got the was CKWL2 the number i fear the most. /blog/post/692908 . The ticket showed no signs of movement until charting was done around 6pm to give me a shocking surprise of confirmed status. B1 21. So all set to Kumbakonam.. In the meanwhile IRI member and railfan Sivakumar Govindarajan said he is free and we could do a catch up.. Before packing i decided to book a SL ticket in Cholan Express for the return journey. /blog/post/692939 .
.
Siva and i met near Ashok Pillar at 7.30 pm and we headed towards Nungambakkam station for some Railfanning and then to take a EMU to egmore to catch my train. We reached around 8.15 pm and went to the PF after taking 2 tickets to Chennai egmore. We went to the VLR straight to have some snacks and gulped Vada Sambar followed by coffee. We spoke a lot about trains and spotted couple of trains passing by. Siva is a hardcore railfan who notes down every loco he sees and is also updated with every rail info thats happening in the MAS divn. He gave me good insight on loco roaster in the south TN side as well. Since it was 9.15 Pm now i decided to take the next EMU to Egmore.

No worries, that was just a joke. By the way, I live in K.K. Nagar. Sorry, I didnt know that you stayed in E.Thangal until very recently, which is hardly 5 km from me.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up.
