coupling photo of ndls-trivandrum rajdhani at sindhudurg station, awaiting crossing by trivandrum-ndls rajdhani. i was in mandovi express waiting for these 2 crossings.
why there are 6 coupling tubes in rajdhani (as seen in photo) & just 2 in regular express trains?

Just a guess... probably 3 for each side related to brakes, and possible fail safe/redundant backups? I've also noticed such coupling between electric/diesel locos in tandem. My understanding of those is to do with control of engines symmetrically from front engine. I would be v. happy for additional info on this.. Thanks for the post

We might have noticed red boards on the OHE poles with message-"Caution- Unwired turnouts. Bina taar ke vishakhan (hindi)"
what is the exact meaning of the same?

Unwired turnout normally refers to a side/loop line in a railway junction that does not have over head electric traction, though the main line has traction. So the driver has to be exercise caution during any loose shunting exercise. Normally shunters are diesel units though and not all wagons are to be loose shunted.
