early morning chill told me that we are in karnataka. kuppam bangarepet stretch was at mps. ironically i have noticed old coaches less susceptible to extreme vibration at high speed. train reaches before time at kjm. nostalgia filled my mind looking at the diesel loco shed. the sweet hum of wdm is missed too much nowadays. that charm cannot be fulfilled by wap. next stop bangalore cantt. most passengers get down here if not at kjm. handful of them sit till destination, which is complete waste of time. overall train is good revenue grosser and should be continued after 28 january 2013 also. the normal 16316 and this special can be clubbed as a single train to be run as...
wap 4 pulled the puny load with ease after negotiating the turnouts just before the veli lake to cross over to mainline track. it was a good run, arriving at quilon bang on time. i was rather taken aback by the lack of catering service. although it never had pantry car yet vendors used to occupy s9, s10 vestibule area for storing food items for the entire trip. may be that contract was stopped. nowadays it is safe to carry own food rather depend on bihari bhaiyas filthy catering. guys from bihar have infiltrated into all walks of our life. be it tte or the drm!. nice they have passion to work and earn. for them it is a mini...
contd........ guard and lp it is learnt that they sign roster kept at tvc. kcvl doesn't have facilities for obvious reasons. tamil guard was seen tidying up his slr coach with help from lady sweepers employed at the terminal. this speaks volumes of the maintenance being done, and the cleaning aspect. it should be noted that the train arrived same morning 0930hrs and it gave maintenance staff 6 hours to clean itself. but in gods own country on god does all that things. 06316 consisted old coach composition with new bio toilets fitted rake was on sbc side that evening. boarded my coach. it was a swr coach instead of sr coach. may be taken sick at other end. time was about 1615hrs. i noticed air pressure leakage from the feed piper of the adjacent s2. promptly informed guard. he assured that wap4 was being connected and his gauge also showed...
contd...... kochuveli yesvantpur garib rath when idling at ypr is used as puduchery garib rather on saturday and sunday. it is known to be a white elephant on that route mostly due to the fact that it more time than that of bus. anyways something is better than nothing. that said, returning to the scene at kcvl. garib rath has diesel power at the lead. it travels through salem dharmapuri which is a diesel territory. wap4 was seen stationed at the far end of platform no 2 for attaching as power for 06316. on the pit lines kerala express was seen in bifurcated form with less than 24 coaches. out of the maze a movement was noticed in the pit lines. a diesel shunter was pulling out 23 coach 06316 to be placed at platform no.2. it is worthwhile to note that gr is given priority and placed on platform no...
trip report 06316.
i had a hectic weekend at tvc. planned to travel by 06316 to sa.
reached kcvl station on an overcast afternoon. kcvl station has the distinction of being a railway terminal with minimal facilities in kerala. arrived at 1545hrs on sunday. 06316 departure time was 1630 hrs. i was amused by the sight of garib rath put on platform no 1. it's timing was 1700hrs. 06316 was nowhere to be seen. speaking about gr rake, it had permanent indicator boards depicting the rake sharing arrangement with puduchery gr. it is...
At kochuveli railway station recently witnessed loco attachment. Here they are not adhering to standard protocol of bringing the loco to dead stop before attaching at slow speed as being meticulously done in northern states. With recent spates of accidents involving staff being hit by loco on the rise, this will not come as a surprise. Only in Kerala such incidents are reported. Higher ups in the command chain must ensure that loco attachment rules are strictly adhered to at all levels of organization structure.
