114 years!!
First RMS service in Madras - Calcutta Mainline
First train to get a Diesel Locomotive in IR, aka WDM-1 loco from VSKP shed.
Was started by Madras Presidency, an ex Southern Railway, today, it shares it coaches with 37 year old speedster Coromandel Express.
It was said, this legend was started back on 15th August 1900, but many speculations still exist on its launch date, but the year was correct, as the famous Godavari Bridge was opened in the same year, and this was the first train to cross it. thanx to Bharat, who actually cleared up few doubts but the legend's exact date is unknown til date.

Still, celebrating, its unofficial launch date as 15th, as found in IRFCA's pic!!
The rare board, which can't b seen now, as its a SER based train.

12839 HWH MAS SF MAIL that departed HWH on 22nd got attached to #30362 RPM WAP 7 at VSKP. Amazing off-link. Here are some pics supporting it. It was almost an hour late at VSKP. Then it arrived 50 minutes late at Nellore Junction, and amazingly made up to arrive 12 minutes early at MAS.!

It is typical Indian mentality. I have seen Indians taking salt,pepper,jelly etc from their airline meal trays. Once in LAX(Los Angeles) they caught an Indian software engineer with about 20 bottles of cologne stolen from airline toilet. It was so embarrassing to witness that as an Indian. Anything free we Indians go for it.
