On a fine morning of 17th October, 2015 captured the birthday boy of NR 12440 NDLS - RNC RAJDHANI EXPRESS near BKSC A Cabin. Note the distinct continuous horn of the truck which incidentally matched with the train giving it a rhythmic approach.

Nice to see a blog dedicated to 12439/40 birthday. Fantastic pix and video to back it up. Congo on my behalf. Do more for the train that you love the most. Will watch this space every year on October 17.
Trip on 3rd February, was another marvellous one. The WAP 7 made another day of mine, but was later ruined partially by the lethargic behaviour of the IR officials. Reason - A guy was smoking in the train, and neither the Attendant opposed nor the other people. I tweeted the same to NCR GM and ALD DRM, but I was held back responsible as to why I didn't counsel him. And then another excuse was given that, the train had crossed the station by the time I complained. i complained at at 02:05 AM but excuses were made by officials, and finally no action was taken. Just throwing off the responsibilty to other's shoulders was going on by Officials. Relevant SS have been attached. Anyways, the food was great again and no complaint in this field. The... more...
Loco Pic has been re-tweeted by srdcmald, cproncr, gmncr1 and liked by srdcmald. Thank you people for the same. _____/\____ . click here The ASN WAG 23192 was for Maurya Express. The unclear WAP 4 was SRC based shot at MGS with 12817 Jharkhand SJ SF. GZB WAP 7 30211 with 22811 BBS Rajdhani Express at CNB GZB WAP 4 25004 was shot at NDLS. Roaming lightly, probably looking for some work :p GZB WAP 7 30218 came with 12381 Poorva Express that day, after the Rajdhani Gang. The Tweet SS attached herewith
So, another great year of 2015, ends with another great trip in the fav train, Powered by GZB WAP 7 30216. But the maintainenance of NR really disappointed me. Broken Windows, Leaking ceilings etc and a lil loose SLB seat, which shifted a few cms whenever jerk was there, and I had to somehow adjust again. But, this demerit was overcome by the better quality snacks, and dinner and morning breakfast being packed and provided by the pantry guy. Food Quality had improved, but during the last 2 trips, the quality has detoriated again. Ambuj Hotels is the Caterers who are serving in this Rajdhani. The New Guwahati towed the rake to PF while 30216 waited for it at the other end.

Two days before its Birthday, the NR King, 12440 NDLS - RNC Rajdhani standing proudly under the brightly shining Sun with Milky White GZB WAP 7 30231. Two of the my friends, Vivek and Suryam came to see me off. Had a great time with them. The quality of snacks and the food had improved that time, but back now on its old standards. The train got delayed by 2 hours en route, but nonetheless it was a fantastic trip. DOP - 9th Oct, 2015 Camera - Nexus 5 ... more...
#admin as I couldn't update and tag the other loco pics, update them too. Thank you
Yeh is type ka ot and controlling samajh ke pare hai. Raj class train ki Jo thodi bahut izzat hai pls usse rehne do.lagta hai ki ek hod lagi hai jise jahan man kare wahi ot Kara do. Doosri chhez cnb pf par itni zyadaa kisi train ko deatain nahi karta due to the fact that it has many trains to cope up with standing at the outer. So better train pf par lo aur ussi series mein rawana karo. Pher badal karne se bahut problem hoti hai
Apr 18 2016 (1:52AM) Today, another OT but good one
Apr 18 2016 (1:42AM) All the Rajdhanis overtaking the 12878 NDLS-RNC Garib Rath near Mirzapur where it is having long unscheduled halt Well, even if Garib raths have lower priority than rajdhanis, I still donottrainsgoinsequenceasperscheduleratherthanjustlettingallthese
Apr 18 2016 (1:39AM) All the Rajdhanis OT the 12878 NDLS-RNC Garib Rath near Mirzapur where it is having long unscheduled halt
Today, another series of OT but good one. All the Rajdhanis starting from sdah rajdhani overtaking the 12878 NDLS-RNC Garib Rath near Mirzapur where it is having long unscheduled halt. Well, even if Garib raths have lower priority than rajdhanis, it's still an important train.... I still do not see any reason why a OT should happen rather than just letting all these important trains go in sequence as per schedule.
It's NCR, no rules apply here. Garib Rath isn't given much priority as compared to a Rajdhani, even if the TT calls for it. And when you are OT by one of the Rajdhani gang, then you have to wait to be OT by all.

It's so fascinating when we meet someone, especially a new person. Isn't it? Well That fascinating experience becomes more awesome when that person is from your virtual world. And thats what happened to me. I got a great chance to meet an active railfan from IRI. As it would be my first meet with another fellow railfan, I made up my mind to seize this opportunity. And thats how I met Mr. Kaushal Vivek. A very noble & down to earth person, he's also very cheerful & kept smiling all the time. In... more...
the very small time we spend together, I got to learn many things from him- like how to take snaps in the midst of preying eyes, etc. I also had a short but a great railfanning session with him. It was a very nice & enriching experience to meet a true railfan like him. _/\_ ➺ And here are the pictures which I clicked that day- ➤ Photos No. 1 & 2- 12440 New Delhi-Ranchi Rajdhani Arriving on Platform No. 14 ➤ Photo No. 3- Loco Incharge of 12440 ➤ Photo No. 4, 5 & 6- #TB of Ranchi Rajdhani ➤ Photos No. 7, 8, 9 & 10- Snaps of Coaches of 12440 ➤ Photos No. 11, 12, 13 & 14- Kaushal Bro posing infront of his coach :P ➤ Photos No. 15, 16 & 17- Loco Incharge Of Poorva ➤ Photo No. 18- #TB Of Poorva ➤ Photo No. 19- EOG of Poorva ➤ Photos No. 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 & 25- Snaps of Poorva's Coaches ➤ Photos No. 26, 27, 28 & 29- Bilaspur Rajdhani #HA
