Duronto in Rajdhani avatar ignores Rajdhani halt at flat 100!
After many many attempts, I got to capture a major train skipping Udupi halt at MPS! Apart from the freight trains, the only two trains that skip Udupi halt are LTT ERS LTT AC Duronto Express and ERS NZM ERS Duronto Express. THe durontos get a chance to skip the station at 100 KMPH! Surprisingly, the rakes of the Duronto were not having a single Duronto livery coach, making it look more like a Rajdhani Express.
Train : 12223 LTT ERS AC
Duronto Express

Thumping Diesels at Kumta on a wet morning : Duronto chases a RO-RO!
On a rainy morning at Kumta, before we headed to Honnavar Sharavathi bridge, we thought of capturing the NZM ERS Duronto Express here. However we also got two bonus ( A freight which can be seen waiting at the station premises and a RO-RO freight) The RO-RO freight was being closely chased by the longest Duronto Express. We expected the RO-RO would be looped here for the
Duronto overtake, but it was not to be. The loaded RO-RO rake headed by a Kalyan WDG-4D skipped Kumta at a sedate speed. 10 minutes later came the longest 12284 Duronto Express powered by its customary ERS WDM-3A locomotive. The Duronto overtake of the RO-RO happened in the next station, Honnavar. Enjoy the beautiful action of the both trains skipping Kumta in beautiful green surroundings.
Train : 12284 H.Nizamuddin Ernakulam Duronto Express
Loco : ERS WDM-3A#14081
Location : Kumta, Konkan Railways

Meter Guage : Honking & smoking YDM4 warns dangerous unmanned railway crossing!
On my recent travel on board the MG passenger train connecting Mavli to Marwar, I was surprised as well as shocked to see large number of unmanned railway crossings in the route. Though most of these unmanned railway crossings are through remote villages , however there are also few unmanned crossings which pass through a few major towns. Due to the absence of level crossing gates, the LP/ALP slow down the train, honk continuously as they approach the LC gate and they accelerate after crossing the LC. Tough job for the crew to maintain safety. As far as i remember there are atleast 80-100 unmanned LC gates in the route
especially between Mavli Junction and Kamil Ghat. The Mavli Marwar section is one of the few existing meter guage route on IR network. Sad it may feel, but some day down the near future, the route is expected to undergo a change from meter guage to broad guage.

Location : Near Kankroli, Rajasthan

This is one way and another what i witnessed in Nainpur-Mandla fort NG route was LC used to be closed by a staff who used to travel in train. Train used to stop before LC and once he goes down and closes LC, train used to move further and wait after crossing LC so that he can board the train again.

Journey highlights Panvel to Karjat : Overtaking offlink Rajdhani & chugging through mountains.
A short journey highlights from Panvel to Karjat section on board the Ernkaulam Pune Express on a monsoon morning. This section has been rarely covered since only very few trains traverse through this section. In the beginning of the video, one can a late running 22414 NZM MAO Rajdhani Express waiting for the starter towards KR behind a live KYN WDG-4D + RTM WDM-3D (failed). The train was held up at Panvel for a decent 20+ minutes as it was made to trail the 12051 Jan Shatabdi Express. Our train gets a starter from Panvel Junction after a 30 minute halt and we proceed towards Karjat through the gradients
behind a beautifully chugging ERS Alco WDM-3A! After a 45 minute ride (with 2 unscheduled halts in between), we reach Karjat, where three bankers were attached to our train for further climb till Lonavala!

To gain something we have to loose something
Good to see more BG coming across India. Many single lines are getting doubled and electrified.
