One passenger sustained moderate injuries on his hand after the gangway(vestibule) between two general coaches suddenly cranked and fell apart after a loud sound. He was given injection, first-aid and continued his onward journey. My friend is onboard today. All this happened in front of him just while entering KGP.

Rare Compilation of IR Trains in 1995, including Rajdhanis & Shatabdis : This video is based on fillers in a couple of my VHS tapes.

A variety of locos in various liveries are featured here - WAM4, WDM2, Twin WDM2s, WCAM1, WCM1, WCM5, WDS4. The following trains are covered, among others:
