Unique single line crossing inside Tunnel :12051 Madgaon Jan Shatabdi Express!
Konkan Railway single line crossing at Ukshi Railway station with the ever aggressive Konkan Queen, Jan-Shatabdi Express rampaging past my stationary Kochuveli Porbandar Express. Our train was made to wait for nearly 20 minutes for this grand train, which gets high preference here on KR! Ukshi has to be one of those rare stations on KR where there is a tunnel in railway station limits itself...

Friday's BKN CBE AC Express came down with an off-link from NWR itself, EMD from BGKT Shed instead of the regular ABR WDM link. The spot (3 KMS outside Udupi station) from where i captured this is the regular spot where one gets to watch trains at 105-110 kmph! However, the train seemed to have cut down its speed to a mere 20-25 kmph speed! This strech has lot of curves and the trains come down at speed with very few honks! In the last 1 month, there has been 2 human deaths. So i presume, the train had slowed down to pass this stretch at a sedate speed.

Morning fog+MG semaphore+honking EMD : Hubli WDP-4 in long hood storms through!
During my last year visit to Gujarat in the Ahmedabad Mehsana diesel section, I caught lot of speeding Alcos and EMD's in action! Of all the EMD's i got to capture, the superstar of SWR, AEB fitted Hubli based WDP-4 gave me the best action amongst all captured action. The morning fog + MG semaphore + blasting EMD made for a solid early morning action. I had visited here when the Meter guage section was fairly active then. Sadly we would no more see any meter gauge in the ADI-MSH section anymore.

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.
