My Tribute to Bangalore Rajdhani on completing 23years of Commercial Service.
A Tribute Compilation coinciding with the Bangalore Rajdhani's Birthday, the train completed 23years of commercial service on 01/11/2015.
Special thanks to my friends Dheeraj Rao and Santhosh Kumar N for having lent me their pics to put together this compilation, and also to die-hard Bangalore Rajdhani Fan Prithvi Raj for having given me the thumbnail.
This Journey was undertaken by me in July 2013, when a portion of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh Rail Network, especially the GT line was badly affected by the rains. We departed from Bangalore led by KZJ WDM3A 18897, and reached Secunderabad 30mins late the next day. The rains were lashing out in Hyderabad city
Thanks for rewinding about the birthday. When started about 23 years back it was a weekly with one night journey from SBC, leaving SBC around 10.30 am.Now it runs 4 days as 22691/92. My desire is that 22691/92 should run 7 days via RC and SEM as it will cover more area in Karnataka and helps the people of HK region of our state
A few months I heard a word that once RC route is electrified, link will be changed to e loco end to end, and 22691/92 will be made daily :)
Hope that will happen at the earliest
Newly designed car carrier wagons of IR and i have spotted it at chichonda in NGP-ET route and i think these design best suits for all type cars

Document related to MPS of different LOCOS on the CCD-TEO ghat section
Why i have uploaded this?
The first 2 pages of this document answers different queries related to MPS of different Locos on IR (HP also included for clarification).
2nd page also includes the ruling gradients of the 2 ghat sections
Dharakhoh Marhamjhiri 1.60
Chichonda Teegaon 1.70
rest pages includes the MPS results of the 2 ghat sections with 25 air brake coaches of CBC coupling
it does not speak about ascending the ghats!!!!
So for all trains these ghat section is cleared for 75 kph....
it does only speak about the MPS of leading loco with rake
Rightly said, check RDS on these sections for more clarification
