Last Year's trip in August, the most powerful in terms of the trains I took, all RF.(12723-12049-12002-12650)
Disclaimer: If you are a Grammer or English Nazi, please bear with this because I am not proficient in language.
The Plan started in summers when Railfans from Mumbai and I planned to take a ride in newly introduced Gatimaan express, the only problem being that
I couldn't join with them from Mumbai as i had limited vacations at my disposal, so i planned a speedy one, starting with Telangana express on Day 1 Gatimaan Express on day 2, Bhopal Shatabdi and KSK on day 3, visiting Taj and taking some souvenirs for friends as well and an RF session at High speed section of Agra and Mathura, so booked the tickets and took rf permissions for Runkuta, a great and calm High speed location just after BFP.
So after all the beginning lets come to the trip part, took an early bus to Secunderabad to find that Railfan and well known IRIan and brother Abhishek travelling to Delhi in the same train :) so had a call with him and found that he got confirmation on charting in 3AC lower, known for being lucky in terms of train accomodation :p. I was quite lucky to have a company on this lone part of my trip.
There was a lot of crowd and usual hustle bustle at the station before the arrival, the best part that i heard about Telangana was its Pantry and there was no surprise the platform had fragrance of cooked food from Secunderabad Base Kitchen for it, they waited for train at the board where it was being displayed "PC", i searched for B2 and waited there as LGD's 30289 arrived with 12723 Telangana express with announcements in all 3 languages being carried out for the same, finally i met AJ on the door of coach we met and had a short chat when WAP-7 tooted, I went to my coach to get my tickets checked, and to try the breakfast, the train departed 15 minutes behind schedule from Secunderabad and crawled all the way upto CHZ owing to cautions, after a delicious plate of Masala Wada and Upma(combined), got the tickets checked i saw my train tearing Ghatkesar before going to another series of Permanent cautions till Aler and then went to AJ's coach through vestibule. The train was sparsely crowded, reached his coach,we had a long chat and in no time we saw ourselves in Kazipet 3 minutes behind schedule, departed ontime after a minute halt. At Kazipet outer both of us held the door and saw ourselves parallely departing with Krishna express that curved towards Warangal as we did towards Ballarshah, after crossing the lake we did saw the lake and came inside the coach, occasionally till RDM we were having a speedy run and came thrice at door, went to check my seat to find no one there. Ordered food near SKZR and got the food at Ballarshah finding ourselves reaching 15 minutes ahead of schedule, the monsoon was at its peak and the scenary outside was beautiful, the usually hot BPQ had cool breeze blowing, we departed just ahead of 22691 arrival.
Had our food while having an extra halt at Chandrapur, thought we would be overtaken here but we departed after a 10 minute halt. After Chandrapur, the WAP-7 mercilessly ripped till HGT where we halted after passing a long caution, we got overtaken by SBC raj and after a halt of 15 minutes we departed for another speedy run, the run in CR was exceptional and violent at the same time owing to jumpy PWAY. We both came to door witnessing the huge 90 degree sewagram curve, skipping that we had a speedy run till Nagpur and arrived 2 minutes ahead of schedule, we both had a glass of orange juice and departed on time after a massive jolt by Nagpur crew towards Itarsi, i fell asleep for this part...
To be continued.

Social Platform Twitter had become the best media for complaint redressal, but never we knew that it would be so effective in NCR, the train(Lashkar express) which departed an hour behind was running 3 hours behind schedule, about to miss our Gatimaan the guys in train decided to tweet NCR regarding clearance to which both Jhansi and Agra division officers reacted positively and the train covered almost an hour till Agra resulting in a 2 hour late arrival, the guys had freshened up now and we started walking towards Gatimaan express inspected all carriages with railfan vision and went to WAP-5 30007 a.k.a bond of Electric locomotives the fluted shell signified of it being imported from ABB, whereas we in India
had fitted it with better cowcatcher and TPWS for safety on high speeds, we did have chat with LPs and got into Locomotives only to be interrupted by RPF jawans later, we went to our coach and took our seats. The train was newly introduced at that time and hence was in its prime condition, we departed bang on time and accelerated to 160 till Runkuta, overtaking Navyug\Himsagar express in the process. I had never been on a train which travelled faster than 110 before that occasion and 160 was an overkill, followed by a round of Welcome drinks and the meal later on, after a speedy run we skipped Mathura, running 5 mins late due to caution because of which we witnessed a killer show later on. In no time after Mathura we were flying at 160 and dusting the likes of Ajhai Chata KosiKalan, the best was palwal skip, scintillating a crowd of people waiting for their train and witnessing Gatimaan skipping at full glory, the train didn't slow down until FDN FDB where it was hitting 130 and Okhla was swept at 120kmph. We arrived NZM 5 mins ahead of schedule.
After having our dinner at New Delhi we came to rest at our retiring rooms, the day was full of action resulting myself to get arrested to bed and tire down, after a breif chat with friends.
I bid Goodbye to them after a 5 hours nap and went to Platform 1 of New Delhi Railway station for my travel in Habibganj Shatabdi that ecaught fire..

HIGH SPEED CROSSING, Bangalore Rajdhani and Telangana express, Onboard Dakshin express, Indian Railways
as my high speed pantograph fitted LGD WAP-4 rushes at MPS towards its next halt at Narkher with Dakshin express, i cross the 2 Heavyweights in a gap of 10 minutes. Look how Rajdhani dissapears within seconds of crossing in a smashing speed.
