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

Diwali greetings to all group members.It is said old is gold- and yes I agree to it.There was a time when railfanning meant spotting quite a few offlinks during the day.This compilation shows some of them.Videos were captured quite a few years back.
Some of the offlinks that can be seen are :
1. HWH WDM3A# 14132 with Howrah-Azimgunj Ganadevta Expresss (this livery is not seen anymore).
WAM4 # 20577 with Mumbai-Howrah Mail (via Allahabad)
3. CNB WAP4 #22275 Howrah-NewDelhi Poorva Express
4. LKO WDM3A "Cheetah" with Howrah-Guwahati Saraighat Express.
