These are simply amazing. Picture after picture, every single one of them reminded me of my childhood days when I used to travel so frequently by train. When travelling by train, the journey is always one to remember, regardless of what the destination is!

Jul 29 2016 (3:15PM) These pictures are from the portion between Chengannur-Ettumanur and Tiruvalla
Snapped some photographs of the doubling work on the Chengannur-Ettumanur section. These pictures are from the portion between Chengannur and Tiruvalla. I also spotted some people who I assume are inspecting the track work. Past Tiruvalla, I have noticed that electrification has not begun, and after a point the track is still to be laid. The train I am currently in(16562: Kochuveli Yesvantpur AC Express) is waiting at Changanassery, presumably for a crossing. There is some construction work going on here as well, and I will post images of that in another thread. Does anyone know when the doubling work is planned to be finished on this complete section?

Here are pictures of all the WAP-4 locomotives I spotted in Yesvantpur Jn. on Sunday. As I had posted phone that day, there were four different WAP-4 engines from four different sheds: one from Vijayawada, one from Itarsi, one from Lalaguda, and one from Santragachi. There was also a WAP-7 from Royapuram. I have also added some photographs of WAP-4 attached to the Yesvantpur Howrah Express rake being pulled into the station by a WDG-3A.

30358 WAP-7 from Royapuram shed resting at Yesvantpur Jn. Railway station. Posting this from Yesvantpur station. There are two WAP-4 locomotives from Vijayawada here as well. I also witnessed a wap-4 attached to the Yesvantpur Howrah SF rake being pulled into the station by a WDG-3A. That was a strange sight! Never seen a diesel loco and an electric loco coupled together before. I have pictures of that, and I will post them when I get back. Currently posting from my phone.
I actually don't know what the 30358 was pulling: it was already parked here when I arrived. Also, I lost track of the Vijayawada WAP-4, but I have photos from my camera so I wll post it when I get back.
There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc.
To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
