Pictures from my 1985 Udyan trip. This one is rather ill-timed shot of the Madras-Bombay Mail crossing our train somewhere between Raichur and Guntakal. Note the livery of my 3-tier sleeper coach - use to exist in quite a few SR trains at that time such as TN, Karnataka, GT. Also, the coach next to it is a BEML coach with a slightly different design.

No, Udyan was numbered as 129/130 Exp. Before, 1984 it was part of the 13/14 MAS-BBVT Janata Express where SBC coaches were combined at GTL.
129 EXP: DR 20:30 -> SBC 1950
130 EXP: SBC 08:10 -> DR 06:45
Renumbered to 6529/6530 during late 1989 as a result of SR PRS implementation.
2-FC, 1-RMS, 4-II ORD, 9-SL.
Later, from 1991 it was hauled by twin ED WDM2 due to 5 extra SL/II coaches between SBC-SUR.
There also existed the famous "Return Journey Quota" system to book return tickets from each end
SBC: 2AC & FC: 4 berths; SL: 48Berths

It is really magnificent. I thought it was a image trick, but when I keenly observed, I realized that it is a real hand work. Forgive me. Excellent.

It was a good decision to slot the times which will improve the response time.
One more good thing is that, you get a 50% refund on cancellation of Tatkal tickets.

It is really so great. Realistic as equals any camera photo. Anyone can shoot a still and post. But this effort is really marvellous.
