Presenting you once again the video of the DLW's Golden Jubilee Celebration Loco ( TKD WDP-4B #40079 PRATEEK ) hauling Jaipur - Delhi Sarai Rohilla DOUBLE DECKER AC EXPRESS. This is one of the most famous locomotives of Indian Railways. The footage was taken near Kirti Nagar Railway Station on 3rd August 2015, 10:09AM.
After all these months since it's allotment, the sheer force of it's presence was mesmerizing and holding interest as if by a spell.
Thanks and hope you liked the video :) _/\_
All I know is that Loco has been repainted recently... no idea if any special paint of clear coating has been used.
I'll let you know if I notice anything special in paintwork... my ride on board this loco is coming soon.
As The Sun Nears It's End For The Day................The Beautiful Jaipur Double Decker Starts It's West Bound Journey Towards Jaipur With TKD WDP4B 40011 in Lead.............:) :) :)
If the kirtinagar is double BG, how does DD is going on wrong tracks?
pic might be old as KRTN is shown to be double electrified BG but there is no sign of poles in the pic.
These Lines Basically Bypass KirtiNagar from the side Right Next to the Kirti Nagar Station and DD is one of the few Trains which comes on this line and goes also from this line towards Delhi Cantt / Delhi Sarai Rohilla. Both of these lines are Bi-Directional.
This is the Bypass Line from Kirti Nagar towards Delhi Cantt . It is not Electrfied yet , The Electrified Lines are Parallel to these on the Left Side but not visible in the Picture.
actually the trains start from sarai rohilaa at pt no.2 or 3 which do not have crossing(canchi) to other line till delhi cantt....so till delhi cantt all the trains departing from 2,3,4 platforms runs like this to delhi cantt
ABR Alco Lead Bikaner-DEE Intercity Ignoring Kirtinagar,New Delhi.
This place was unknown to us and we had no idea that there is another pair of tracks without actually touching Kirtinagar platform.So was not in great position to capture.Seen here is Abu Road Diesel Alco WDM3A #16563 leading 22471/Bikaner - Delhi Sarai Rohilla Intercity Express to its final destination.
It is, in fact, hurtling towards DEE.
Yeah towards final destination.have mentioned Kirtinagar, new delhi to denote its in new delhi ;)

We were new to this place and hence did not had idea that DD will attack on the line near to us,hence had to move to safer distance in mid.Thanks for that humble waving hello from Loco pilot @00:29.
