Rare Compilation of IR Trains in 1995, including Rajdhanis & Shatabdis : This video is based on fillers in a couple of my VHS tapes. It is a compilation of 32 trains that I encountered during my various trips in July-August 1995. Be sure to enjoy high-speed crossings as well as arrivals and departures. 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:
- WCAM1-hauled Ahmedabad Shatabdi departing from Borivali 0:01
WAP3-hauled Bhopal Shatabdi departing from Jhansi
- WAP3-hauled Bhopal Shatabdi skipping Bina 1:21
- WAM4-hauled Jhelum Exp. at speed 1:42
- Taj Exp. in white-blue-red-stripes livery 2:03
- WAP3-hauled Bhopal Shatabdi near Mathura 2:10
- Karnavati Exp. rake at Ahmedabad in original cream-blue livery 2:21
- WDM2-hauled Bhopal-Rajkot Exp. at speed 2:48
- Double-headed Ahmedabad Shatabdi at 120 kmph 3:17
- August Kranti Rajdhani rake at Bombay Central coaching yard 3:24
- Double-headed August Kranti Rajdhani Exp. crossing Andheri 4:14
- Overtaking WCM2-hauled Chennai-Dadar Exp. 4:45
- WCM1-hauled Deccan Queen departing from Pune 5:21
- WCM5-hauled Deccan Queen arriving at Lonavala 6:31
- WDM2-hauled Saurashtra Mail departing from Jamnagar 7:22
- WDM2-hauled Kurla-Bangalore Exp. arriving at Guntakal 8:34
- WAP3-hauled Bhopal Shatabdi departing from Jhansi 9:11
- WAP1-hauled Kalinga Utkal Exp. at speed 10:40
- WAM4-hauled Bundelkhand Exp. 10:57
- WAM4-hauled Karnataka Exp. at speed (in cream-brown livery) 11:48
- WAP1-hauled Bombay Rajdhani at 130 kmph 12:02
- Parallel overtake by Jaipur-Bombay Superfast Exp. 12:24
- WAM4-hauled Dehradun-Bandra Exp. 13:40
- Overtaking WCAM1-hauled Saurashtra Janata Exp. 14:03

In the video, there are three instances of a Rajdhani crossing a Shatabdi. See if you can identify those.
