16346- Nethravathi express bound to Mumbai at Rathnagiri
KJM-WDP4 and WDG3A with 56913 SBC-UBL/SMET fast passenger waiting for our Vasco - yesvantpur express.
It already arrived at UBL East Cabin by 22:30, but the arrival at UBL is 23:45. So its running 1hr early today, just need to cover 4Km in 75mins. Hope SWR reduces the immense slack.
Friends will be traveling on this train tomorrow to Margao. I usually drive once or twice a month to Goa but this time decided to take the train. Will be returning back on saturday from Karwar on 16524. Hope to bring you all some live updates. Will be staying at Palolem but will visit Agonda and maybe temples around Ponda. Thanks.
Honestly I don't even know what a CBC rake is. Maybe someone else can answer.
In layman language, CBC rake is a rake in which the coaches are coupled with each other akin to how the coaches of goods train are. So practically more jerks during the journey. Trains like Kaveri exp and TN exp have CBC coupling. A vast majority of the train have the screw coupling.
Does Kaveri espress have a CBC rake? I thought SWR does not have a CBC rake....
kaveri has cbc rake , kaveri is SR train
Malgudi express which belongs to SWR shares rake with Kaveri express. So technically yes, we do have one SWR train having CBC rake although the rake belongs to SR/MAS division.
what the hell is with this train,,, it takes 9 hours 15 minutes to reach UBL,,, instead can depart at 15:00 hours and reach at 23:15 at UBL....SWR has won world cup in running trains with such long hours in all its routes...
To accommodate Chikmagalur FP, they advanced this train's departure i feel. Behind that Shimoga bound ICE runs which is tough to handle in single line section.
Regarding CC, its updated as provided by bloggers or noticed by admins. Any error in it, please inform which can be corrected :)
in CC, S1 to S11, directly posted instead of expanding, kindly correct
kindly correct one more train, 12779/80, GOA Exp, it now gets WDG EMD series from PUNE shed between PUNE and HUBLI,,, twin WDMs are not operating past many days, this train continuously gets PUNE WDG 4
Is it? from when EMD's started coming towards Hubli? what about LG-VSG? GY alco?
past some 20 days continuously Iam watching it gets WDG 4G, ( that dark green colour with red line) from PUNE shed....
Even Udyan Express bro. This YPR VSG is highly neglected by SWR the only reason its CC got increased from 18 to 21 coaches is RSA with 12741/42 which runs full. Earlier it used to get KJM EMD but then link degraded to KJM Alco.
will this train reach madgaon on time and can i catch vsg-ypr bi-weekly express at 9pm.
this train is truely a speedster, yesterday i travelled in this between kannur-madgaon, left kannur at 10:35am reached mangalore 12:40 and departed at 12:55 bt reached madgaon at 17:25, with 15mins halt at surathkal ( X with bhavnagar-kochuveli express), 10mins halt at barkur( X with RO-RO) 10mins at bhatkal( X with rajdhani)
Alco Vs EMD at Yesvantpur Junction.
Vasco & YPR-KCG links.
YPR-VSG Exp gt pf #1? Now we have offlink pf too :)
KJM WDM3A pulls VASCO express in full throttle out of Yesvantpur
As my Nelamangala in bound passenger enters the Yesvantpur outer, the out bound Vasco Express was on time and got its Sunday regular KJM WDM3A to chug it out of Yesvantpur in full throttle to pick up acceleration on the Hubli bound main line.
Oh if it was other day you would have got Itarsi locos :)
Few days back spotted JHS WDM3A twins at Vasco station yard shunting the rake of Goa express.
