That's True!!! Even GE's Tier 4 locos are the most efficient T4 locos in the range of medium speed diesel engine as a prime mover. I work for GE transportation on these locomotives!!!! :)

Friends, This is not really a tip but a question. We are total 13 people boarding the train 16526 from Bangalore on Saturday (29th Apr 2017) upto ERN (a family trip to Kerala). Should we board it from SBC (25 km from my home & takes minimum 2 hrs from my home to SBC rly stn), KJM or WFD (both are nearby WFD being closest- 8 km, 30 minutes from my home). I was looking thr' the train tips about 16315, it is mentioned that from KJM it is even difficult to board the train due to daily commuters travelling between bangalore & bangaret. Is it the same situation for this train as well? I was planning to board at WFD. Will this the train (16526) be crowded from KJM itself similar to 16315? Will we get a chance to enter into the train from WFD? Thanks in advance! (apologies, if...
the post is not into correct forum. although I'm an old member, don't use the site much beyond for some reference or to gain knowledge & info)

Be alert at KJM station. When I travelled, there was no coach position displayed, neither there was any announcement of the train!!!!
There is veg/egg/chicken biryani sold in between KJM-YPR. There are vendors at YPR as well. Good 'e catering' options availble at YPR (dinner) & UBL (breakfast). at YPR one can get food served from KFC, Dominos & other vendors for thali etc..I ordered a a veg thali, every food item was warm, both vegs & daal were good in taste. Gulamjamun was delicious. Chapati was made from maida. Sufficient qtty of rice, 3 chapatis. The cost of thali was 155 (all inclusive). At UBL, I ordered Idli wada from e catering. It was good (better in taste & qtty than
what you get from platform vendor). It had 4 idlis, 1 wada, chutney & Sambar for Rs 40 (totally worth it!). UBL has good options in breakfast. Train mostly reaches before time @ Hubli South & Hubali. Vendors get in @ Hubli South only.
Not to mention about the Braganza Ghats & Dudhsagar!!!! If you get a berth on left side, you will get a good close-up view of the Dudhsagar Falls. (Just Ask Vendors when the Dudhsagar will come & get ready to capture it). If you want to capture it from the door, you should catch the door well in advance, else most of the travellers know about this falls & all the doors will be packed. If you are seating on right side of the train, you will get the remote view of the falls as train negotiates the curve just after dudhsagar falls.

MAS-YPR Loco link might have been upgraded for this train after recent TAT speed up (Oct 1st 2016). Mine was a first trip after TT change & it got a WAP7. Also, Breakers needs to be updated as UBL WDG4s in the loco section of the train. We got twin UBL WDG4s.

WAP7s are common for weekly trains to SBC/CBE but are not fixed links.

For calculations of the average delay, how many data points are used? (e.g. one month, six months, 1 year etc)

    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...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
