no idea about the monsoon times but during the non monsoon times yes !!! it is a rocket indeed ( majorly depends on the locopilot too ) when I travelled around may , reached madgaon with a delay of around 1 hour.... nd reached udupi with jst 10 mins delay !!! giving an avg of almost 70 km/hr between MAO-UD moreover in a single track mountainous section with an ALCO .... so yes it deserves to be called a ROCKET!! And moreover" Karnataka janarige upyoga aguva akayka overnight superfast train"

A case of the different class of Alco locomotives from Kalyan DLS working in Mu'd pair powering the bi-weekly superfast to Mumbai. The two videos were captured on two consecutive mondays in last month. The first week it was with orange WDG-3A "Shakthi" twins and the next week it was powered by orange + blue WDM-3D twins. Enjoy the chugging show put by the ALCO twins.
In the first case : WDG-3A#14982 + WDG-3A#13580
In the second case : WDM-3D#11254 + WDM-3D#11356
: 22114 Kochuveli Mumbai LTT Superfast Express
The WDG-3A class locomotive is rated at 3100 HP whereas for the WDM-3D, it is 3300 HP.

Friday's BKN CBE AC Express came down with an off-link from NWR itself, EMD from BGKT Shed instead of the regular ABR WDM link. The spot (3 KMS outside Udupi station) from where i captured this is the regular spot where one gets to watch trains at 105-110 kmph! However, the train seemed to have cut down its speed to a mere 20-25 kmph speed! This strech has lot of curves and the trains come down at speed with very few honks! In the last 1 month, there has been 2 human deaths. So i presume, the train had slowed down to pass this stretch at a sedate speed.
Train : 22475 Bikaner Coimbatore AC Express
: BGKT WDP-4#20102
Location : Udupi, KR!!

Monsoon afternoon : Trains, peacocks and a dog run over!
I got to spend an extremely pleasant afternoon at Udupi in the lap of mother nature with the chirping of birds, continuous peacock calls, passing showers and the macho diesel hunks! The observations were as follows :
1) 22114 Kochuveli - Mumbai LTT Superfast Express with KYN WDG-3A#13604.
2) 12133 Mumbai CST
Mangalore Junction Superfast Express with a KYN WDG-3A#13561.
3) 12620 Mangalore Mumbai LTT Superfast Express with a ED WDP-4D#40174.
4) Extremely sad moment when the 56666 Byndoor Mookambika Passenger ran over a dog right in front of me (Seen dead between 7 46 - 7 50). RIP Doggie. Train was powered by an oldie ERS WDM-2 .
5) Under heavy showers, 19260 Bhavanagar Kochuveli Express behind a masculine VTA WDM-3D#11212.
Two cameras were used in this RF session. The old Nikon coolpix (which records some great sounds) and the Canon SX 500.

Alco triplets on a roll : Gooty Alco twins rescue LTT KCVL Express!
One of those lucky capturing. As i came to know through the KRCL website that this train was stuck at Senapura for a long time, i sensed that something was definitely wrong! I initially suspected there was some track maintenance work. But slowly i checked that 12223 LTT ERS Duronto and 12133 CSTM MAJN SF Express both overtook this train. Then i suspected that there could be a loco failure and made a point to capture this train. And i was very lucky to get these special Alco twins from Gooty Alco shed. Getting to capture a GY WDM-3A in classic Kingfisher livery in Konkan Railway is a huge
bonus. The KCVL Superfast Express was initially powered by a Kalyan based WDG-3A.
Locos : GY WDM-3A#16474R + GY WDM-3A#14040R
Train : 22114 Mumbai LTT - Kochuveli Superfast Express

Love for Abu Road ALCO and 2 bonus trains : Indian Railways!
Last Friday, I made it a point to capture the weekly 22475 BKN CBE AC Express which visits Konkan behind the NWR's ABR Alco. I had missed capuring this train in the last few weeks owing to my busy schedule.. As soon as the train neared Kundapura (2 stations away from Udupi), I reached the first spot hoping to capture the MPS action of ABR alco + ICF coaches combo. To my surprise, i checked online to see that the train was held up at Kundapura to cross the late running Matsyagandha Express which had departed a few minutes ago from Udupi. I was angry at that moment as i
had to wait for another 40 minutes before 22475 appeared. Just as i was about to leave, i heard EMD humming sounds and turned on my video camera. It so happened that the train was a BCNA rake which was speeding south bound lead by sharp cab UBL WDG-4 twins! It was due to this freight that 22475 was held up at Kundapura since it was closely trailing the freight. After a little while i got the 70106 Mangalore Madgaon DEMU train which eventually crossed 22475 superfast at Barkur ( A stop before Udupi). I moved to other location owing to the poor light . Finally, 20 minutes later came the much awaited moment with the fired up ABR WDM-3A firing with the ICF coaches flying at MPS towards Udupi.
Train : 22475 Bikaner Coimbatore AC Express
Loco : ABR WDM-3A#16280
Location : Udupi outskirts, Konkan Railways
