WHEEL SLIP & Slip Resistance experience..
--------------------------------------------
Pricy spotting for me on my last unscheduled RF in India before I fly to US for 3 months s I was rushing to make all of my last minute arrangements.
Seen in this video is, GTL WDM3D twins working very hard to pull a heavily loaded BCNA/M rake towards Yesvantpur.
You can observe in the very first frame with the leading loco that some kind of a white coloured SLIP RESISTANCE MIXTURE is being sprayed beneath the wheels, on the track to increase friction and to resist wheel slipping, while you can observe for the trailing loco's WHEEL SLIPPING even after Slip Resistance Mixture

is being applied.
The locos spent more than 5 minutes on gentle throttle, to get the initial movement after getting a starter. To let these Elephants move forward, we are all let to wait for close to 30 minutes at the LC 152 of the YPR-SA section near Lottegollahalli.

Anyways neither Vaigai nor any other train is going to get WAP-7 so soon. First of all, we should wait for the left over doubling and electrification to finish between MS-TPJ. WAP-4s are ruling the stretch and they are also doing their job very well.

Rajdhani trains to have Super AC coaches:
(This article was published in the newspaper "The Hindu" on July 29, 2011)
NEW DELHI, JULY 29:
Spacious and technologically advanced ‘Super AC’ coaches for Rajdhani trains are on the anvil with the Rae Bareli coach factory being asked to undertake the new project.
“The conceptual design for the Super AC coach with just 44 berths is being finalised and instructions have been issued to the Rae Bareli coach factory for manufacturing a prototype,” a senior Railway Ministry official involved with the project said.
At present, the second AC coaches in Rajdhani trains have 55 berths,
...

while there are 72 in third AC coaches.
Though the fare structure for the Super AC coaches is yet to be finalised, it is expected to be higher than the current second AC rates but less than first AC.
The railway coach factory in Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh has been entrusted the task of manufacturing 25 Super AC coaches for Rajdhani trains in the first phase.
“The unique feature of the new coach being designed in Rae Bareli is that it will be more spacious than the existing ones in Rajdhani trains. Later, we may consider it for other mail and express trains,” the official said.
Proposed in the Rail Budget, the new Super AC coach with 44 berths will have wider windows and more leg space, particularly for side berth passengers.
“It is aimed at providing high-end service to passengers with better ambience, more amenities and will also be equipped with a small pantry car,” he said.
The lightweight Super AC coaches will be made of stainless steel and will have all safety features.
Besides the proposed Super AC coach, Rae Bareli factory is currently manufacturing new-generation Linke Holfmann Bush (LHB) coaches.
“Six LHB coaches are ready to roll out from the factory,” the official said.
The LHB coaches used at present in Rajdhani will be converted to "Super AC Coaches" slowly and steadily as per the report.

After the successful completion of 160 KMPH Semi - High Speed Trial run between New Delhi and Agra termed as "Indian Semi Bullet Train", the Indian Railway board have stepped up efforts to upgrade track speeds across the country.
A lone Royapuram WAP-7 30331 locomotive was assigned duties of carrying out a speed trial test between Chennai and Gudur for the first time today. The locomotive clocked speeds of around 140kmph in its run.
It remains to be seen whether if this is the first of many high speed trial runs on this stretch. The Chennai-Vijayawada line has been crying out for upgradation of track speed for ages! But nothing has materialised till date. Indian Railways and the new Indian Government are in favour of introducing Bullet trains. They seem very

I think this run was the first step for improving this section to High Speed Section of 130-140 kph. After that they will do some modifications to old tracks like in NDLS AGC.
