Train over the longest bridge of Konkan Railway at top speed : Hill-top view!
One of the fastest diesel hauled passenger trains on IR network, Mangalore Madgaon "superfast" passenger cruising over the three bridges over the Shravarthi river at MPS, powered by a WDG-3A from Ernakulam shed. This amazing engineering marvel consistinf of three bridges over the mighty Sharavathi river was completed way back in 1994. The Sharavati "B" bridge is the longest which is a whopping 2060m long. Along with this Sharavati "B"bridge, there are Sharavati "A" and "C" bridges respectively and totally, it takes three bridges and almost three kilometres to cross the mighty Sharavati River. Here, the late running train was doing close to 90 kmph which is

Love for Abu Road ALCO and 2 bonus trains : Indian Railways!
Last Friday, I made it a point to capture the weekly 22475 BKN CBE AC Express which visits Konkan behind the NWR's ABR Alco. I had missed capuring this train in the last few weeks owing to my busy schedule.. As soon as the train neared Kundapura (2 stations away from Udupi), I reached the first spot hoping to capture the MPS action of ABR alco + ICF coaches combo. To my surprise, i checked online to see that the train was held up at Kundapura to cross the late running Matsyagandha Express which had departed a few minutes ago from Udupi. I was angry at that moment as i

had to wait for another 40 minutes before 22475 appeared. Just as i was about to leave, i heard EMD humming sounds and turned on my video camera. It so happened that the train was a BCNA rake which was speeding south bound lead by sharp cab UBL WDG-4 twins! It was due to this freight that 22475 was held up at Kundapura since it was closely trailing the freight. After a little while i got the 70106 Mangalore Madgaon DEMU train which eventually crossed 22475 superfast at Barkur ( A stop before Udupi). I moved to other location owing to the poor light . Finally, 20 minutes later came the much awaited moment with the fired up ABR WDM-3A firing with the ICF coaches flying at MPS towards Udupi.
Train : 22475 Bikaner Coimbatore AC Express
Loco : ABR WDM-3A#16280

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.
