A NOTE TO ALL VIEWERS :- This is a post of a video; a Journey compilation; every tag in this post is appearing in the video, not tag is random, if anyone feels any tag is unnecessary, please do watch the video first and then point out errors if any. Thank you.
Presenting highlights from a trip on the Chennai Shirdi Superfast Express from Chennai to Krishnarajapuram. It is the only train to cover the 345km distance between Chennai and Krishnarajapuram, with diesel locos though the section is completely electrified. This train covers the 345 km between Chennai and Krishnarajapuram in 5 hours and 18mins, at an average speed of 65 kmph. Led by WDM3A twins from Tondiarpet, enjoy the Shirdi express'
amazing run as it moves through Northern Tamil Nadu, touches a bit of Andhra Pradesh and finally ventures into Karnataka. Notable crossings include the Intercity barrage from Tirupati, Bangalore& Coimbatore, followed by the West coast express, Yeshvantpur Hatia Superfast, Sanghamitra Express& Seshadri Express. As we near Bangalore, the Double Decker and Brindavan Expresses cross us.

Had been to SBC this morning, was really surprised to see 16235 with WDP 4d, couldn't note down shed and road number since I was in a hurry, but was sure that it was 16235. A huge offline, coz I've never seen an emd on sbc-sa line, even 11013/14 which get emd between SBC and ltt gets alco in sbc sa line, so was really surprised. EMD through ghats around Dharmapuri will be quite a sight, with multiple curves..

Even, 16231 - Mayiladuthurai - Mysore Express was with GOC WDP4 B / D (not sure but yellow stripe was there) today..... Regular link of Twin Alco's were missing... Had been to drop my cousin to BNC and this train arrived BNC around 5:45 AM...

That makes it even more curious, as I said, EMDs on this route are quite rare, after losing twin alcos with the king 12627, now this is worrying if 16235/31 lose out on twin alcos.

Sorry to nit-pick.... Chennai to Bengaluru has been doubled & electrified long time back.... Bengaluru to Mumbai sector is getting doubled & electrified. But that (doubling & electrification in any sector) alone does not help in trains maintaining punctuality. First & foremost stations should have enough platforms to accommodate trains. Many trains arriving SBC are late due to non-availability of Platforms. Small examples are Train # 12613 (Tippu Express) & Train # 16232 (Mayiladuthurai Express) between Mysore & Bengaluru. It reaches Bengaluru outer before time but arrives Bengaluru late due to non-availability of platform almost daily. Similar is the case for most of the trains.

First of all I did not mention about Chennai to Bangalore in my any of the statements. I only mentioned Mumbai-Bangalore,Chennai and Hyderabad. So for your knowledge trains coming from Mumbai to Chennai go via Guntakal and not Bangalore. What will you say about trains in UP section which get late by 5-7 hours. I say priority is to Double and Electrify Delhi-Guwahati which includes UP section which is neglected from years in Railway development during UPA rule when most of their railway ministers like Lallu from Bihar,Mamata Banerjee from WB, they thought only about adding trains but never thought of Facilities to Passengers, Amenities in trains and never ever thought of doubling lines in UP and Bihar. Doubling should be the first priority and Electrification next. Itarsi to Allahabad route will also get fully electrified by 2018. I know about electrification In Kerala,Tamil Nadu and Karnataka because I live in...
Tiruppur from past 20 years and it is electrified. For me the railways should electrify these routes
1.Mumbai-Delhi via Ahmedabad,Abu Road,Ajmer,Jaipur.
2 Delhi to Guwahati (all the routes )
3.Mumbai to Mysore via Bangalore
4.Chennai to Hyderabad.
5.Bangalore to Hyderabad (All routes)
6.Howrah to Guwahati.
7.All the existing routes which are under electrification process and all the routes for which tenders are out.
I think Electrification on main routes where premium trains like Shatabdi,Rajdhani,Duronto run should be electrified.
Konkan Railways is exception.
You should also know that Indian Railways have stopped the production of WAP 4 CLASS locos and only WAP 5,7 will be produced now. So there should be no argument on Diesel and Electric because all the departments of NDA government is working fine for electrification Indian Railway is seeking funds for more power supply from Piyush Goyal. Their plan is to electrify most of the Rail Routes. And that situation of delays would be solved by solving basic issues and yes it will happen soon.

yeah.. Intercity & Lalbagh have RSA. Morning Lalbagh from Bengaluru reaches Chennai around 12:15 PM and starts back as Intercity, departing Chennai @ 1:30 PM. Similarly, Intercity, which starts from Bengaluru @ 8:00 AM, reaches Chennai around 2:30 PM and departs Chennai @ 3:35 PM as Lalbagh...
