A train from Surat to Purnia took 5 days to reach destination. Visakhapatnam to Muzaffarpur train was stopped at a place somewhere near DDU where there was no water, nothing for about 12 hours. You are talking about containment zones. Trains have started moving from past 2 weeks and in 5 days government lockdown will end. My area in Hyderabad was a containment red zone but government essential officers were allowed to travel in and out for work.

2:11 am se tweet karne se garib ko khaana milega kya? Kya baat kar rahe ho yaar!! Mumbai se Gorakhpur jaane wali train ko Via Rourkela bhejke 30 hrs wala journey ko 72 hrs kar diya. Yaar normal route me 3-4 hrs chodo 7-8 delay ho jaata toh kya farak nahi padta. Itna rail traffic nahi hai, toh aap batado ki itna congestion hai ki 42 hrs late ho jayega train. Faltu me dikat toh pahuchane ka thought kisi ko bhi nahi hoga. Par dikkat toh bohot hi ho raha hai migrants ko.

Travelogue on Mumbai - Pune - Mumbai trip.
PART - 2 : Stranded at Pune.
for PART - 1 : /blog/post/4631299
Now, after coming to platform one with my heavy luggage, went to
PRS counter and asked about tatkal booking, assuming it to be free, but while I went and asked someone told that there was already 30 token per counter. So clueless, went to platform 1, it was 10 for 10 am, I sat near a railwire wifi modem near foot over bridge and tried to book tatkal for my return journey back home from Mumbai. Meanwhile empty rakes of 22845 pune – hatia superfast express was shunted at platform 1. Then it was 10 am. I had two options, either to book 3A tatkal in 19424 GIMB TEN humsafar from surat or to book SL in 22654 H.Nizamuddin – Thiruvananthapuram superfast from panvel. I first tried to enter tatkal and book in tatkal for 19424 from surat.
Even I filled in the details and the fares were nominal. But since I wanted that wind in the face experience from sleeper class, dropped that option. Went till payment page and came back. Then in between came to food court in the same platform to have a nominal brunch to quench my hunger. So, bought a plate of poha, had it, also had vada pav for one another time for that day. Meanwhile recorded train announcements in the station.
Then as it was 11 to 11, came again to the foot over bridge end, sat near the railwire wifi modem and tried to book tatkal in 22654 H.Nizamuddin – Thiruvananthpuram superfast express. Though I successfully opened it initially, within filling the booking details, the availability status of 110 reduced to only 10, was afraid since it was the only last option remaining for me to go back home. Already I had a ticket in the same train from panvel with RLWL/22, though I booked it 15 days back, the waiting list did not even move. One another thing was that no premium tatkal was there at that train. was scared then. But, thank god during the time of cash payment as signal from railwire wifi was fast, it saved me and somehow got confirmed ticket for my return journey back home.
So, as I booked my tickets back to home successfully, I went to take ticket unreserved train ticket between pune and khandala, but as none of the trains leaving pune towards mumbai at that time was having commercial halt at khandala, though trains going downhill do stop at khandala for break testing, the clerk issued me ticket till thane. then was searching in online for the next train between pune and lonavala. saw that the next train towards lonavala was 11026 pune – bhusaval express at 11:40 hrs were the next train towards lonavala.
So, as it was announced that it was standing at platform 5, went to the same, after getting down from the foot over bridge, saw many bhel puri vendors, got one, actually one and a half.
Yes, as he told one bhel puri is rs. 20, I asked to add extra bhel and give it for rs.30. then went to the first unreserved coach (actually last coach that day) and boarded that train. Only five minutes was remaining for that train, and I was wondering that still no loco was attached at the end. But still I went to my seat and sat. finally, the train started to move in the opposite direction. Suddenly I realised and as It was moving slowly in the platform, I put my bag down in the platform and I deboarded quickly. Only by then, asking the RPF nearby, came to know that 11026 pune – bhusawal express was diverted via daund owing to the works that is happening between pune – lonavala.
So, the next possible option to go lonavala side by train was this weekly contender hubli – lokmanya tilak express via bijapur, while tracking him, he was on time and he had already left daund. I sat there in platform 5 to take some rest, kept tracking the status of 17321 and it was with minimal delay till uruli, as I checked the status around 12 pm at which it is suppsed to be at pune, thought that this train could only be maximum some say 30 minutes at pune. So then saw that around 12:15 pm, one another local was to leave to lonavala.
So, came to platform 1 and saw a local rake, but no passenger boarded that and 5 minutes after 12:15 pm, it was taken back to yard as even that was cancelled due to track works.
Hopeless, again went to platform 5, around 12:30 pm, checked the running status of 17321 hubli – lokmanya tilak express, still it was at uruli and no further updates were there about that train. I got literally panicked. Then thought this won’t work out and came out of railway station.
So, came outside of the railway station to the bus stand nearby and asked for buses to lonavala and khandala. I was unaware of the pune city and its actual Shivajinagar bus stand. In that bus stand, for my good time, only shivshahi and shivneri buses were available and they told that they will drop at lonavala byepass and ticket fare will be rs. 300. Opposite to that bus stand, some local bus stand was there probably from which pmpml buses could have been operated. Even enquired there but still did not get clear information. They even told ordinary buses are also not available from here.
As I neither knew local language, nor hindi, was feeling difficult to inquire about the buses. So, again disappointed, went back to pune railway station around 12:45pm, checked the train status. Still it was at uruli. Then I introspected once that should I atleast see sightseeing at pune or as per plan should head to khandala. But as I was unaware of the places that I could possibly cover in the available six hours, so planned to head to khandala and to spot trains and enjoy the nature.
By then it was already 1 pm then a slight relief as the train had left uruli as per both where is my train and national train enquiry system. Then again it took half an hour for the train to arrive pune and by around 1:40 pm, with 40522 numbered WDP-4D locomotive without shed marking, pulling hubli – lokmanya tilak express into pune junction platform 5, 40585 numbered WDP-4D locomotive from pune shed simultaneously pulled 07618 panvel – h.s.nanded weekly special express into platform 6, both trains does not exist to this date and both came in such a way that cab – 2 was facing front.
Now as both simultaneously arrived, I started taking pictures. Now as soon as the engine crossed me, I rushed to the front of the platform for boarding the train.
Then, I went suddenly to a bhel puri wala, got a bhel puri again, had it fast and rushed to front of the platform and boarded the front UR next to guard cum luggage van. The first coach was filled to brim. But still was okayish near the door. So settled near the door. Kept the bag in my lap and sat near the door at the right side of the coach, that is trackside door. Managed to sit safely.
As shed markings was not there for 40522 WDP – 4D, I searched both in IRFCA and IRI database, it showed that that loco was belonging to hubli shed. I was shocked since I was unaware that UBL holds any dual cab EMD locomotives, i.e. WDP – 4D. this was my first time spotting WDP – 4D of hubli loco shed and first time travelling by a train hauled by the same.
Though 07618 panvel – h.s.nanded weekly special express slowly departed pune junction platform 6. Then was googling about the crossings that I am about to encounter till I reach khandala and the trains that I could probably spot at khandala, also checked about view points and tourist places nearby the railway station.
As I sat near the door, I was sitting, sitting and sitting, but no signs of train leaving pune even after halting for 15 minutes. Then again got down, purchased some water bottles, boarded the train. Then again googling about the same, forgot myself for a while chatting in railfanning groups in whatsapp.
No signs of train leaving pune even after 2 pm, started panicking, but still again started planning systematically and searched the running status of the train which was about to cross me and did some calculations, was gazing at the trip shed visible far away and also was thinking about how much time that I could possibly spend there and how fruitfully that I am going to use that time, then hopelessly was gazing at the sun. Could hear the cranking of the EMD locomotive but still no signs of departing from pune.
After 20 odd minutes, I could hear the honk of the EMD locomotive, was finally happy that at least by now that the train departed, and we slowly started moving out of pune, at least a ray of hope gushed into me as we departed pune.

Travelogue on Mumbai - Pune - Mumbai trip.
PART - 1 : Indrayani Superfast Express.
And posting this exactly after 366 days of this journey, at 19.05.2019.
are many options for tourists / rail enthusiasts to travel between Mumbai and pune. that too one will definitely plan in such a way that at least in single direction that they will take this legendary deccan queen superfast not only due to its unique feature, having old and unique livery of central railways, having a dining car in the rake and offering delicious cuisine, but for its monstrous run and for its limited stops too.
But, my choice at that juncture was quite different, since I always loved to travel in a diesel hauled train and heard about the monstrous run that the Indrayani Superfast used to offer with diesel traction, and also its timings being comfortable for me, having some coaches of old and unique livery in central railways, felt that I must try this train. Have seen in many train videos that this train being hauled by ALCos and EMDs, but have never seen and travelled in the same in person. So I was very much eager to give it a try.
All set, booked tickets, got window seat, came Mumbai, roamed for a day, came back to my dormitory in CSMT and kept alarm for next day morning at 04:25 hrs and slept. Woke up immediately after alarm rung, got ready within an hour and came to platform 12 when 15 more minutes were there for departure of the train.
Now was seeing the rake of indrayani superfast with a joy as last SLR coach of that train was Janshatabdi liveried, having big red coloured train board with beautiful white fonts, was searching for my coach D4, boarded it and searched for my seat, felt extremely happy because my coach was having that unique old livery of central railways and my seat was a track sided window seat in the direction in which the train moves.
So kept my big shoulder bag in the luggage rake, came out of the coach, performed some rituals which every rail enthusiast mostly used to perform. Clicked pictures of the rear and front board of the train, small train boards outside my coach, and loco, yes loco was parked in such a way that loco was outside the platform. Since the sun did not come out by then, did not get a proper picture of my loco but yet managed to snap one by standing near the 1st coach. The loco which is going to take this train till pune at that day was WDP – 4D, GT46ACe, 4500 Hp dual cab EMD locomotive numbered 40156 from PUNE shed.
And took selfies outside of my coach in the train, my train was sparsely crowded, next to my platform, Tapovan express was there and rake of Mumbai CSMT – Karmali Tejas superfast was being shunted. Recorded some train announcements while the final departure announcement for my train was made and dot on time slowly, we started from CSMT while sun also started showing its face to us.
Train slowly looped into main line, and picked up speed effortlessly, was cruising through Mumbai suburbs, witnessed some highspeed crossings of the incoming trains to Mumbai like late running Gadag CSMT express and Nandigram express. Since that was my first day time direct journey from CSMT to Pune, curiously gazed the Mumbai suburbs, coaching yards, local trains, etc… Meanwhile, we reached dadar within 15 minutes if time and a huge crowd started boarding the train in such a way that all seats got full and even few where standing.
Train halted few minutes in Dadar and we accelerated out of dadar towards thane in no time. As we were accelerating out, I spotted a train with KYN based WCAM – 2 locomotive hauled train entering dadar which is Chennai egmore – dadar superfast express. We crossed matunga and kurla in no time, was curiously watching the point where the railway line from lokmanya tilak terminus would arise and start running parallel to our railway line.
And we even crossed train like amaravati superfast express, our train maintained at constant MPS till it arrived thane, there itself the train got jampacked. Even standing crowd was full. Even it halted very briefly there. As we departed from thane I started clicking random pics of the nature and the trains crossing us.
Took some random pics of thane creek, where we gradually was accelerating. And even parsik tunnel came, I was out of control and started clicking videos as our train entered amd exited parsik tunnel, the picturesque entry of this tunnel and the EMD loco honking and humming through the tunnel and accelerating, literally I got goosebumps.
Even today I used to wonder by seeing the pics and videos I clicked there. As the line bifurcated for panvel as we exited the parsik tunnel, huballi – lokmanya tilak terminus was entering into Mumbai from panvel . Then we slowly entered diva, where Diva – Sawantwadi road Sindhudurg passenger hauled by 11183 numbered WDM – 3D loco of erode loco shed was waiting for its departure. We skipped diva bit slowly, then pick up speed. Then diesel loco showed all its wrath, went in maximum permissible speed till kalyan within which mr. sun started showing its full face. Some more people again boarded at kalyan, now my coach flooded with passengers, slowly we moved out of kalyan, random chikki and local food vendors started showing up.
After we moved out of thane itself that appearance of the city slowly started disappearing. After kalyan, need not explain. Gradually started experiencing that mightiness of the western ghats. Though it was a sunny day, the chill winds were pleasing me. And train beautifully negotiated many curves and I was tirelessly clicking every possible time the train went in a curve. And the humming and acceleration sounds of EMD cant be heard much because of the crowd in my coach. We skipped neral jn in a very good speed. My eyes were searching for neral – matheran narrow guage loco and train but I was happy that I atleast saw the narrow guage platforms. Then as we maintained at MPS till karjat, we did not get slowed down anywhere till we arrived karjat.
We were looped In Platform 1 in karjat for its scheduled halt and for attaching the bankers for the train to climb uphill. As soon as the train arrived karjat, the bankers, I mean the locos which are attached at the back of the train to give pushing effect and also helps for additional braking power. Those were ready and as soon as the train stopped, I went to backside of the train to see the bankers and by the time I went, they have already entered the line and were closely approaching my train. It was gradually attached to the train.
The bankers for this train was twin WAG – 7 class electric locomotives of kalyan shed with nos 27118 attached with the train and 27117 at the rearmost. As soon as the bankers were attached, I rushed to my coach to board the train and honks from both bankers and the leading loco was given. Even in this small gap, I managed to get a pair of vada pav, a common delicacy in Mumbai, and somehow boarded my coach within train started moving. In that crowd some one occupied my seat and then I showed my ticket to take back my seat.
And at the very moment of departure, I heard some vague honking. I kept my cameraphone ready. Already some WDG – 4D class locomotive with concor consist was already standing at karjat jn. That honk came closer. From far it seemed like WAP – 7 locomotive, and I tried to take a video of that train. I realised that very locomotive was WAP – 5 class locomotive when train came comparatively near to me. Yes that was the first time I saw WAP – 5 class locomotive with my naked eyes. I was extremely happy that I captured a video of a train that is hauled by such a locomotive. That too 30039 numbered WAP – 5 of Ghaziabad shed. It was hauling darshan ac superfast express.
Meanwhile, my train departed karjat and cleared the loop slowly, after exiting karjat I could able to see goods yard with lots of goods rake and each coupled with a locomotive, as we slowly started to gain speed, we had already entered palasdhari which is heaven for most of the rail enthusiasts. Yes it is very much obvious since the station starts with a curve and goes straight and steep upgradient, showing that the ghat section has commenced, and take a right side curve. A scenic locations to capture trains with bankers ( for uphill trains as down hill train goes without bankers, not sure of downhill travelling goods trains though.)
After leaving palasdhari, even myself I could feel that we are climbing uphill and EMD locomotive gave its best efforts to climb uphill and the bankers supported it effectively. I lost my control and started clicking “n” number of pictures. Meanwhile, slowly munched the vada pav which quenched my hunger too. Then back to my photography business, yes train was moving in reasonable speed, climbing hills, entering and exiting tunnels, negotiating curves, crossed jambrug and thakurvadi cabin, taking photos of serene mountains, clouds, richness of the nature in western ghats, also was aware visually about the height in which the train was moving, when I saw below. Then and there could see banker locomotives moving downhill towards karjat jn.
Once I crossed one such tunnel, I saw a catch siding which was very steeply ascending from a cabin, which is monkey hill cabin, yet another scenic location to capture trains for the rail enthusiasts. Realised that I am nearing the mighty khandala, which is a heaven for rail enthusiasts, travel fanners and nature lovers. And regarding that station if I say, after coming out of the tunnel, a curve comes following by a steep upgradient, then the station comes in the curve, after the curve ends, it straight away enters into a tunnel, literally got goose bumps when my train went through that upgradient and was skipping the station in a hot sunny morning with maximum efforts put up by the EMD locomotive. Then after series of small upgradients, then an upgradient, I was able to see a town, end of the upgradient showed me a station board showing lonavala, yes we arrived lonavala.
As we arrived lonavala, people started deboarding, crowd in my coach reduced, bankers were detached and after a brief halt, we departed lonavala. Literally we accelerated out of lonavala, we picked up speed, at kamshet, where we negotiated a beautiful curve, yet another location for rail enthusiasts to capture the train where one can spot the high speed action of the trains. My train beautifully negotiated the kamshet curve in excellent speed, after which it got slowed down and crawled through kanhe, went in 15 kmh-1 for say some 5 kms due to some track work, while negotiating above temporary speed restriction due to the track work, meanwhile WDM – 3D locomotive in long hood front facing from kalyan loco shed hauling Kakinada – lokmanya tilak train also crossed us in the same speed. After skipping Talegaon my train slowly started accelerating.
Though ghat section ended in lonavala, but still that we virtually could enjoy the beauty of the western ghats surrounding and the Mumbai – pune expressway passing parallel to us. But unfortunately could not able to see indrayani from indrayani i.e., could not see indrayani river from my train indrayani superfast since my seat was at right side of the train and that river passes at the left side of the train.
After Talegaon my train started picking up speed and went in maximum permissible speed, nearly before akurdi signs of city started appearing, which potentiated when we were moving further, chinchwad station came and enjoyed the curve, signs of entering pune suburb was evident. We were already 25 minutes before schedule. We were with minimal delay till lonavala. Then we looped into Shivaji nagar railway station, as we looped into, 51318 Pune – panvel passenger with chocolate boy locomotive 21878 numbered WCAM – 2 of kalyan shed was hauling the train. After deboarding at pune I planned to take this train back to khandala to enjoy the nature and spot some trains there. Could have deborded at lonavala and catched this train. But still wanted to perform end to end journey in this train. So I resisted this thought within myself.
Still was helpless as we were 25 minutes behind the schedule and that train started leaving Shivajinagar by the time our train had arrived Shivaji nagar, helpless but calm, we marched slowly into platform four of pune jn, arrived at 09:20 hrs, 20 minutes behind the schedule. All the passengers started deboarding the train and I wondered about it. But still the run I had in this train, each and every second I still remember and I will never forget this wonderful trip in my life.
After then, Indrayani superfast express is one of my most liked train of all time. Macho man WDP – 4D 40156 of pune loco shed performed really well, then again took picture of that very loco attached with that train in different angles, that too in proper lighting, hence was satisfied.
Then the rake was taken back to yard, wondering about that since after 5 minutes the same rake should leave as pune – Solapur superfast express. But then it was announced that the same was cancelled because of track works near daund jn. After that confusion solved. Then moved to platform one with tons of memories.
Really i am feeling happy that atleast once i travelled in ICF version of this train with its unique livery, but now, though he became LHB, but he became 10 among the 11 (as we say in Tamil), having usual livery of LHB rakes..

Thank you very much for reading this patiently.

I feel its wrong to attach D-loco as its wastage of costly import i.e Diesel.
Secondly, 15 minutes are good enough to change loco.
Thirdly, they can attach two locos with WAPie in front and D-Loco as dead loco as is being done on many sectors now (STA-MUV for example).
Ur views?

Sir, as KLBG DD electrification works are fast going, once it is over, then e2e HOG WAP 7 can be given since this train is LHB. though it spares 10 - 15 minutes at Pune, after that its TT is very aggressive, having avg of 66 km/hr with three stops and need to consider single line crossings after daund. And as it is having only one hour of turn around time at solapur, if we consider delays then the time available at SUR decreases, within that they clean all the coaches, fill the water and reverse the loco and attach, then it proceeds to pune and then mumbai. So in case if 12169 is delayed then 12170 and 22106 will also be further affected by delays. Due to operational constraints and punctuality issues i feel it is not getting Electric locomotive and such measures similar to KTE STA or DHNE KCG/SC...
or TPJ MV. I am NOT against electric locomotive but this is what i felt sir.
