A very happy Bengali New Year to all fellow members of the group.To start with the New Year 1424 presenting a video of the two most important "contestants" of the region- Sealdah Duronto Express and the NewJalpaiguri Shatabdi Express.
That day surprisingly the Duronto was not that late which made it trail a before time running Shatabdi Express.The sound of folk music that was been played nearby on the occasion of Janmashtami was overruled by loud metallic rumbles.SGUJ WDP4#20048 was the power of the 12042 NJP-HWH Shatabdi Express whereas HWH WAP4#22413(ex WAP6) was the power of 12260 NDLS-SDAH AC Duronto Express.

GZB vs HWH WAP7's in their blazing mood. Presenting a compilation video of the two prime ER Rajdhanis- the Howrah and Sealdah Rajdhanis.Shot at same location Baruipara at two different season.Luckily the sequence turns out to be the same in both the cases- A looped EMU slowly joins the Main line for its upward journey and the Rajdhanis turns up at that very moment in both the cases.First one is 12314 New Delhi-Sealdah Rajdhani Express and the other 12306 NewDelhi-Howrah Rajdhani Express ( via Patna).

An old compilation video from South Eastern Railways.Those days when the Puri Duronto Express was inaugurated few months back and the famous Duronto of the route Yeswantpur Howrah Duronto Express.Location-Panskura Junction an important railroad point of the region.
The first train to approach Panskura was 12246 YPR-HWH Duronto Express.Surprisingly the train charged through Dn reverse line.
This Duronto was running slightly late that day.A few time later the Up reverse signal turns green signalling the approach of the then Puri Duronto Express with ICF coaches.SRC WAP4#22502 charges with 12277 Howrah Puri Duronto Express.

Deulti is one location in the busy Howrah-Kharagpur section of South Eastern Railways that can always provide some nice action throughout day and night.I was lucky that day to witness some hard core electric action.
Of the many actions witnessed the first in this clip is that of 18646 Dn Hyderabad-Howrah East Coast Express powered by a VSKP WAP4 #25008.As the train disappeared in the distance there appeared two red dots in both the Uplines(of which one was the Up Reverse line).The dots cleared themselves within seconds and they were now visible as two WAP4'S.
late running 12504 Kamakhya-Bengaluru Canttonment Humsafar AC Express powered by SRC WAP4#22839 fiercefully chasing 18030 Shalimar-LokmanyaTilak Terminus Express powered by VSKP WAP4#22994.With a tri-tone honking the Humsafar seems to be in pursuit of the hapless so called "Bombay EMU" and overtakes the later at the outers of the station towards Kolaghat
