A Late Monsoon Journey from Tirupati to Bengaluru
A November Monsoon Journey between Tirupati and Bengaluru, on board the 22618 Tirupati Bengaluru City Intercity Express. It was one of those journeys where the rains were tormenting for most part of the ride, the departure was delayed from Tirupati itself, by about 20mins. The run upto Katpadi with halts at Pakala Jn. and Chittoor was above average. Throw in a few crossings and the spotting of the twin ALCo hauled Venkatadri express at Chittoor and the run to Katpadi
...

was over. At Katpadi the late running Chennai Coimbatore Intercity was spotted, while my train ground to a halt on pf4, the RPM WAP7 hauled Intercity pulled out of pf1 while crossing the Bangalore Arakkonam Passenger. Twilight kicked in after Ambur and it was a rapid chase all the way upto Jolarpettai; where we had an unscheduled halt. Post Jolarpettai, with nothing to hinder our path, the ED WAP4 on a rampage, barring a couple of unscheduled halts, the run was fantastic. The crossings came in thick and fast, and we pulled into pf4 of Krishnarajapuram with a marginal delay of 10mins, while the Bengaluru Kanniyakumari express was getting ready for departure.

1. BZA WAP-4 prepping up for the run.
2. List of people who will be responsible for the start of the journey.
3. Road number - 25039, Vijayawada WAP-4.
4.

Train board with respective destination landmarks.
5. Under cloudy sky.
6. Loco with normal liveried EOG.
7. Decorated Humsafared B1.
8. Extension of pic no. 6
9. Coach in which I rode.
10. 2015 made, Rajdhani liveried, SER's one of the Hot Buffet Car.
11. Zone and coach number of Buffet Car.
12. Dancers showing the train board on Humsafar EOG.
13. Bangali coach board.
14. Far down (opposite of close up) view of TB with decorated EOG.
15. Two rounds of full rake and engine's all filled with fools.
16. No words to express my ecstasy.
17. Information screen inside the coach. Useless one. Just welcomed us during the whole journey.
18. कोच के अंदर सूचना स्क्रीन। बेकार एक। बस पूरी यात्रा के दौरान हमें स्वागत किया। (Sorry!! Google Translate.)
19. Smoke and fire detection system. Bane for chain smokers. Detects even that.
20. Welcome drink at ₹15.
21. Promotion of PM Gram Sadak Yojna using cups.
22. Technical sponsors.
23. Same as above. Camera woke up and phone got enlarged.
24. Some door plating experience. These banana leaves spoiled my experience for sure.
25. No. It's NOT soup and Egged rice but Egg biryani and raita. A thumbs up from me. It had a definite taste and was piping hot. Let's see what happens with quality in subsequent runs.
26. Catenary masts near JTJ.
27. Train got away from KPD as I continued my way to return to SBC.
28. Final close up with the loco number.
29. Go. Went. Gone.

32. Green signal. HWH Duronto coming soon.
33. Complete view of the station.
34. Hills at a distance.
35. TPTY line lies deserted.
36. SRC WAP-4 leading the way.
37. Took me a few months back. When I was onboard this train and saw people standing on this very station.
38. RPM WAP-7 with MAS-SBC Superfast Express. What an irony!! A brand new LHB train with a WAP-4 while a normal superfast train with a WAP-7. Went back on this train.
39. Closeup of RPM WAP-7.
40. Just before my train arrived. SBC-AJJ passenger. Came with a TKD WAG-7.
I missed a pic after pic no. 19. Too lazy to change the numbering.
Another useless thing. Now, what will be used for??!!
HELP: Can anyone tell the name of hill ranges between Kuppam and Jolarpettai?
Will start video editing from tomorrow. Expect the videos soon. Soon enough.

YES!! Earlier I was planning to travel on BNC-KYQ HS, but I had to take a half-day at my office. I dropped the plan eventually. Then this came and the Republic Day holiday. Gathered a lot of courage and decided to give it a go. It's just a coincidence that the first run fell on a holiday.

It's on the right side only. :)
The passenger is going towards Villupuram. While it is not visible in the video, this single line will go up an ascent and cross over to the other side of the MAS-CBE mainline. The freight rake is on the UP line of the main, double track, going towards Chennai.
