Trip Report: Part 1
For the trip details Click here
Trip Date: 27.06.14
As I got down from the town bus & started entering the station I could see the rake of 12679 MAS-CBE ICE departing around 15 mins late. I was excited about the journey as this is the first time in this train(also knowing its headed by RPM P7).
I came crawling into the station around 16.40 itself and started looking out for the PF info(although I knew that it
...
Read more...
wud be PF 1).Usually the LED display would be ON showing the information.But I find it turned OFF.Next I went towards the white board looking for the written information of PF.To my surprise,I could find only the empty board.Just to confirm I went and asked the vendors in PF 1.Meanwhile 56885 KPD-VM passenger left from PF 4.Just then 12296 Sanghamitra Exp headed by RPM WAP 7 came along PF 1 about 55 mins late(as shown here by another IRI RF Click here to see the loco).Saw someone taking pic of the train(nameboard i guess) and checked the CC.Then I started moving slowly staring at the train towards the NB for confirming my name in the chart.And there you, got another surprise the chart isn't pasted, could find only that of 16627 West Coast Exp and 12679 Coimbatore Exp.
Sanghamitra started moving while 22618 TPTY-SBC ICE entered PF 5 at 16.55 (5 mins early).I walked towards the bogie 5 as indicated in CC and sat down near RPF building where I could few monkeys wandering and playing.Then came the 56262 SBC-AJJ passenger in PF 2 about an hour late. 22618 left On Time from KPD while the announcement stated 56010 VLR-AJJ passenger would leave shortly from PF 3. 56262 left from PF 2 and then after a few mins came the petrol tankers headed by KZJ WAG 7 started slowing in the track after PF 1(as shown here by the same member Click here to see the loco & rake ) and stopped.After getting clearance signal it left while gaining good speed towards the end.
It was already 17.20 hrs and no announcement still about the TVC Exp. Then came the announcement stating it would arrive in PF 1 shortly and immediately I stood up moved towards the track to see P7 curving in.And there you go, the train arrived headed by RPM WAP 7 30341 (as shown again by the same member Click here to see the loco ) 15 mins late.As always, the UR coach was full. I quickly moved towards my coach and occupied the seat. There were less unreserved occupants near the doors.
I would report for later stage of the journey tomorrow...
P.S: This is my first try for a trip report so please be patient if the write up is boring &/ lengthy. Thanks for reading till now and more importantly for the member who took & shared these snaps during his journey ...

Class doesn't come in here. Most of the Indian locos are the variants from the older ones.
HP actually doesn't match the class name here.

in Indian standards, some locos's class don't have relative Horse Power.
For example, WAG-6A,B n C, the forefathers of this new family, have 6380 HP, which is actually mentioned as 6100 or 6000 in many sites, but they have 6380 HP.
The makers at ASEA Brown Boveri have planned accordingly with class name as per Indian standards.
That's why its known as WAG-6 with 6000+ HP.
If IR had followed its class style, then WAG-9 would b 9000 HP unit. and WAP-7 would 7000 hp.

WDP-4/4B/4D, yeh sab are following their parent style, jo Desi nahi hain. so u can see the same power, traction and but difference in gear ratios.
Even WDG-5, the silent loco, has the same specs of American SD-70MAC. almost all EMD's of Indian railways are following the suit of American ones.
After all, the parents dna is often carried in kids.

Now political pressure will build and IR will be forced to retain stoppages @ TRVL & VAK. When you have JS stopping @ SRTL, AWY & MVLK, Kerala Express stopping @ VARD, MAS - TVC SF stopping @ TRVL is absolutely justified(Personally I prefer & travel by trains with fewer stoppages though!).

So does it mean that the new railway timings are already updated in the website (indianrail.gov.in).It would be interesting to see whether the experimental halts are still there or not.
