Madgaon Mumbai Jan Shatabdi Express meets a Goods train at Vilavade
Video by me
BTW what is the speed?
Its MPS.. Speed is above 110 km/hr.
As a standard BOXN rake is 57-58 wagons long (which is around 680 m) and time taken being approx 23 secs, speed works out to be slightly greater than 110 Kmph.
Whose speed?? Ur train's or the Freight's?
