Main thing, from gopalpatnam rri to station home, it's under Automatic Block
So if there is a train or issue ahead, the signal won't change neither the track alignment

It's vskp koraput passenger which leaves in the morning, not rayagada. Of that's delayed then, there must a realigning issue at switches. Almost all trains mentioned in news left late.
That's y duronto was kept outside.

Unless there is alignment track issue, none of the above trains will leave so late.
It was kept at home signal.

Yes it was delayed but pf availability isn't the issue all time.
Tech errors do creep up.
Nevertheless, this duronto comes in either on time or else delayed by few minutes.

Started with steam, continued with Diesel, changed to WAM's, WAP-4's, today it gets 3 phase WAP-7's, n maybe in future a next generation loco.

It was on this day in 1964 that the Brindavan Express began its journey for the first time between Bangalore and Chennai.The express, with its air-conditioned chair car coaches, was the first superfast train in south India to have reached its destination in just 5 hours and 15 minutes.The historic...

train speeding through the two States has been much more than a fast means of transport, as several people speak fondly of what travelling on it meant.K.N. Krishnaprasad, a retired official and a regular on the train for decades, recalls travelling by the Brindavan Express when it had a diesel engine and ran on single pair of tracks.“It would reach Chennai just in time for passengers to board the Grand Trunk Express to Delhi,” he says.Back then, there were only three stops — Bangalore Cantonment, Jolarpet and Katpadi. Another important milestone was the introduction of a double-decker in the 1980s. But, it did not have much space for luggage and tall passengers ran the risk of hitting their heads against the ceiling.Pavitra R. remembers how, as a student in Delhi during the 1990s, she travelled every summer from Delhi to Chennai and boarded the Brindavan Express to Bangalore. She says she thoroughly enjoyed travelling in the train’s chair car. The locopilots, who were proud to drive a superfast train, also have stories to tell.
Retired locopilot R. Subrahmanyam (73) inaugurated the Brindavan’s electric engine in 1992. He was given the train to work independently, after training on working with electric locomotives for seven months at Avadi Training School.
“People would stand all through the journey on unreserved coaches,” he recalls.

Train Tag: Brindavan Express/12639 added by Tejas**/59728
On October 1, 1964, history was created when the Southern Railway introducted the first day-time intercity express between Chennai (then Madras) and Bangalore.Named Brindavan Express after the famous Brindavan Gardens in Mysore, the train, which was first introduced on an experimental basis, turned out to be the ideal choice for...

tourists.
Initially, the train started with eight conventional coaches hauled by a steam locomotive. It covered the 360km distance between Madras and Bangalore in 7.5 hours. In 1966, the train was run with diesel locos and the running time was reduced to 5.5 hours.The stops were limited to three stations -Katpadi, Jolarpettai and Bangalore Cantonment. Later, the train's running time shrank to five hours. Emboldened by passengers' response, the railways provided a complete vestibule rake with lightweight coaches and a fully reserved accommodation.
It was known for its punctuality and it is believed that travellers waiting at Madras Central station could set their watch at 7.45pm upon the arrival of Brindavan Express. “That green-yellow livery was a wonder to behold -whether you were seeing the train zoom past or you were sitting in the compartment seeing the stations pass by . There was no question of even a single unreserved passenger on board this train till the mid-1980s,“ said Sriram Karthik, another rail enthusiast.
“I have wonderful memories of travelling by it since the 1960s. Since I was a frequent traveler, Brindavan Express was my preferred train because of its promptness,“ said T Sangeetha Rao, an artist.
As Brindavan Express completes its golden jubilee and rolls into another year, rail users from Chennai and Bangalore sincerely hope the Indian Railways, which has over the years given the train a raw deal by increasing stoppages and travel time, restores this train to its original glory

Angry Vendor, parking contractor gherav the moderator of a popular rail blogging site.
Today, hundreds of vendors selling Chai, pani, kachori have blocked the mod at an unknown location.
Exact location of the incident is unknown and cannot be mapped via Rail Atlas.
Vendors have protested that they have paid heavy amounts to get licenses to sell food and water during the arrival
and dep of Agra JP Shtb and JP DD. They have "trusted" one of members opinion that these trains run with full capacity although
the seats show hundreds in number.

The vendors were trusted that all passengers are last minute passengers and storm the
current resv counter as the train approaches.
But the fate was reversed as they found there are no takers neither for their tasty Kachori nor the empty ghaadi.
Parking contractors made spl arrangements to those last minute passenger to park their vehicle close to the pf for a prem price
but their painting charges to mark the boards were also recovered.
Upon investigation, they found that due to few particular members who have guided them wrongly has caused this much of loss and wants
Moderator to repay.
When contacted the site Mod, he winked and showed us the "RAIL CHAKRA" and message below it(Take it in Moderate Dosage) and left the scene

WAM-4's have mixed gear ratio, which is indeed powerful than a normal WAP-4 locomotive too in terms of tractive effort i.e pull effort.
WAM-4's have max speed til 120(110 in some cases) and can't go beyond due to certain restrictions.
from the genes of WAM's, WAP-1's were designed to haul Raj Class trains at even higher speed, i.e 130.
WAP-4/1 were tested max til 169 km/h in test trails out of which these were restricted to 140/130 km/h on the dash.
WAM-4's came to an end when WAP-4's production was in full swing n was most successful loco since its birth.

Even if one motor fails down, in IGBT mode, the rest 5 or 4 of them will continuing working depending on the instructions passed by the chip.
The fail down will b detected by the chip installed on board n the loco pilot needs to troubleshoot these on the spot. On major failure, the loco will b rebooted n if no response comes back, then nearest head will b contacted.

Yes. They can b.
SER needs to get upgraded to 3 phase training along.
And depends on the Board's decision along with Sr DME's options.

Neither any P5, P7 nor any WDP series has yet been found after lapse of so many years in any shed of this rail zone
e in 2024 you will see only P4s,WAM4s in these zones

e in 2024 you will see only P4s,WAM4s in these zones

Sep 30 2014 (11:22PM)
it has also more thano than 70 P4s
I asked this question because all knows that maximum old version locos like WAM4,WDM3A etc are abound in SER........ it has also more than 70 P4s.......
Neither any P5, P7 nor any WDP series has yet been found after lapse of so many years in any shed of this rail zone....................... sorry to say SER is the most back dated rail zone in this regard and it's upgradation is also uncertain......
I feel that in future CLW may be forced to produce P4s only for SER and other zones which are master of P4 only.....and blind in case of next generation locos.....because if you provide P5 or P7 to SER they will return it and bring P4............. it is obvious that after 10years i.e in 2024 you will see only P4s,WAM4s

Not even necessary.
Kharagpur homes Diesel Locos, Bardhamann n Howrah homes Diesel, Siliguri homes EMD's.
So there is nothing wrong or rule in homing pure Electric Locos.
SRC used to home Diesel locos earlier but not anymore.
SER has BNDM in its field which homes Diesel Locos too. 60% of the tracks are in electric so there is no need of Diesel's all the time.
talking about WAP-7/WAP-5, they have already visited SRC couple of times.
in few years, SRC might start homing them too.

Yeah. U got the correct answer.
Yes., its Wag6a from ASEA/BB which was equipped with microprocessor system on board. Later after much changes, this system was widely used in rest of Indian Railways Locomotives.
The best example is wag9, wap5 n the other variants.
The boards were of Motorola series it 32 bit processor which were later again imported from ABB on request when Wag6a were having tough times.

#RailFanTrolls
Indian PM Narendra Modi signs a pact with US Prez Obama for "Swacch Bharat".
The funds involved in this is not disclosed due to various security reasons.
Surprisingly, few hibernating SER KINGS Rf's have taken more seriously on this note.
They have decided to go on a ambititious and audacious task of Cleaning the SER KING Coromandel and Mail.
All RF's across WB and TN have hit the google plus to discuss the issue and #CleantheKING is the hashtag currently trending in twitter.
Rail Fan journalist managed to get in touch with KINGS FANS ASSOCIAITON
...
Read more...
Prez Mr. Shaam Krisshna aka Rake Hunter, an admin in one of the
popular rail blogging sites across webworld.
RFJ : GM Mr Shaam Krishna, nice to see you to take this enormous task.
SK : GM, yes its a call from our PM to make this legend bring back its true color.
RFJ : But, PM has called for cleaning of our Holy Ganga.
SK : LOL, which zone do you belong to ? Mother Ganga is a lot cleaner than the KING.
RFJ : << shocks>>
RFJ : What are your plans and how do you kick start the process?
SK : We have called all our activists to assemble @ HWH and MAS Stn. As soon the train is placed on PF @ HWH, 4 bouncers per coach would
be stormed in at each entrace. They regulate the traffic movement inside reserved cattle class and unreserved cattle class.
Not more than 150 members would be allowed in UR class.
RFJ : How about SL class/
SK : 4 bouncers would be moving around the catch and handpick all gen class tkt passengers and thrown them into UR class.
Instant refund would be given to RAC passengers and they are respectfully dropped on to the PF. No RAC is allowed in the KING.
RFJ : But the toilets stink badly and any amount of cleaning cant make this place a better to s(h)it.
SK : Yeah,coming there. Bouncers would start a stop clock as poon as the pax enter teh toilet. After 30 secs, the doors would be
knocked as first warning. Within next 30 secs, if the pax doesnt come out, bouncers are given free hand to break the door and pull out the pax.
RFJ : This process continues upto to MAS ?
SK : Dude, which zone have you been all these years? We step down as soon as VSKP comes. Coaches wil be clean automatically @ VSKP and then it continues to sparkle till MAS
RFJ : Howz the possible ?
SK : Its SCR dude. S - Super C - clean R - Region
RFJ : And in MAS ?
SK : Ha ha, One call from Thalaiva is enough ..
And that ends the chit chat with Shaam Krish.
In the meantime, across a zone in north, violence erupted.
MAP, Mugalsarai aadmi party condemned this move.
Their spokesperson spoke exclusively to us and in their words
" How can they spend 1000's of crores in cleaning one train ? And, this is not easy like sending rocket to MARS. cleaning KING is just next impossible.
Its far easier to make trains Sampoorna Kranthi, SDAH Drnt, Sikkim Mahananda to run on time than to clean SER KING".
