By the way, who is Sreenath Sree??? did Zahaib Sir cloned himself in order to capture Tb's of south India's trains too??? :P
Quite strange photo for a TB. While most TB's will have a photo of an historic building, this one seems to have that of a modern building (unless I'm mistaking/overlooking something).

Seen in video is 12978/Marusagar Express hauled by Bhagat Ki Kothi [BGKT] WDP-4B #40039 in LHF mode traversing over Shashtri River Bridge, Sangameshwar Road in Konkan Railways. 12978/Marusagar Express is India'a longest running train with an EMD link. Roaring echo sounds of EMD can be heard before it approaches due to surrounding hills. Also display of stunning breaking can be seen at end of video due to caution in Purchuri Tunnel. Shashtri River Bridge is between Bhirkund Tunnel and Purchuri Tunnel.
The Marusagar Express is a weekly express train that runs between Ajmer and Ernakulam, connecting Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka to Kerala. The train runs through four zones of Indian Railways, traveling 2859 km in around 47 hours. There are 29 halts along the way. It starts from Ajmer on Friday morning and reaches Ernakulam Junction on Sunday

early morning, and starts back to Ajmer on Sunday evening to reach Ajmer on Tuesday afternoon. The word "MaruSagar" essentially means "Desert-Ocean". The word "Maru" refers to the Thar Desert in Rajasthan and the word "Sagar" refers to the ocean (the Arabian Sea). Thus, the train connects the desert state of Rajasthan to the Arabian Sea coast in the West. It travels from Ajmer in Rajastan to Ernakulam, in Kerala, passing through the towns of Jaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Kota, Nagda, Ratlam Junction, Vadodara, Panvel, Ratnagiri, Goa, Mangalore, Kasaragod, Cannanore, Kozhikode and Thrissur Railway Station on the way. After Vadodara, the train travels along the western coast of India beside the Arabian Sea.
Railfans Prathamesh Yeram and Arzan Kotval were there along with me on this Konkan trip.

Furious BGKT WDP4 spectacular speed show with Marusagar Express
Finally caught the BGKT EMD in Udupi.
The mighty diesel beast from Jodhpur visits the coastal surroundings of Karnataka with one of the longest EMD hauled trains in India, after Avadh Assam Express. I was completely taken aback by the furious approach of the WDP4 beast. Sorry for the shakes in between, as a lady comes in between and spoils my video.
Enjoy the brilliant humming and LHF honking sounds of the monster.

This time traveled Marusagar 12978 Jaipur to Ernakulam, the journey was good, the cleanliness was good, contractor awarded come to check and got the feedback from us, but the horrible part was the pillow and especially bed sheets provided were had omitting smell coming out of it and colour was pale while, its seems they have folded and kept in stack so it seems pressed but never washed. Railway has to improve the washing system especially the blank which God know when it was last time it got wet and the bed sheets and pillow cover. Should use Softeners for washing which make soft and give good smell after wash. I share some of the photo of my trip and some comedic incidents saw in the train during the trip.
1. AC temperature applicable in AC shows Winter 19-20deg and Summer
...

23-25deg. Good logical mind has done this sticker who never stayed or experienced in AC.
2. This AC First cum AC 3Tire compartment has 30 seats in 3AC but the system allocates 31 & 32 as confirmed seats, it has been complained in ERS but they shifted the fault to Jaipur Division. They accept that they cant do anything on system side but manually by allocating the seats to other places after chart prepared can be done as they are doing till now like that who suffer, but the problem is with the family, as my case i was travelling with family dad and mum both senior citizen and patient,wife and kid and this unknown 31 & 32 seats fell into my hands this time and i approached Reservations officer ERS they ensure to help us. This is happening since the start of the train and reservations people said they came to know after one year of the start of train.
I asked the same query in this blog no one give correct answer or solutions. Even chackde gave me ridiculous answers. There is not solutions for this problem as every Friday and Sunday same things arises and TTs or passenger has to suffer and sought out. We don't know which jurisdictions comes under. In India rules are made so complicated that either common man has to depend on the agencies or professional to sought out. One way giving ways for corruptions and dalals.
This is the warning to passengers who will get 31 & 32 seat confirmed in HB1 coach in Marusagar better contact nearest reservations office and get it rectified before travel other wise get ready to face hurdles and pain.

here i hope this is some technical terms, in most of the trains nowadays thermostats are installed to control the temperature. in summer the set temperature of the thermostat to start the AC will be between 23-25 and in winter the start tempreature poin will be set up in between 19-21, as in winters the weather is cool and an usage of Ac will also be less.
