Happy Birthday Indrayani Super Express.. 26 years of Service.
Though there are many Legendary trains between Pune and Mumbai, this remains to be my favorite especially due to its mighty diesel link. Seen here is 22105 CSTM PUNE Indrayani SF Express ripping at 100 kmph through a foggy morning at Akurdi hauled by ED WDM3A#16507 power.
It was on this day 26 years ago (27.04.1988) that the train began its maiden run to Mumbai as the 314 Up hauled by a blue and white liveried WCM5 loco. It then had dark (Prussian
blue) and white coaches unlike with the red lining in the middle which characterize CR's intercity livery coaches today. Its PUNE Dep timings were 18.45 and CSTM Arr was 22.15 hrs.In the return 313 Dn used to leave CSTM at 06.00 hrs and reach PUNE at 09.25 hrs. It has had many change of numbers.
313/314 (1988-1990) (SFE)
2121/2122 (1990/91 till 1993)(SFE)
1021/1022 (1993 till almost 2009/2010)(Non SFE)
22105/22106 (2009/2010 till date) (SFE).
Around 2010,it was further extended till SUR as the 12169/12170. (Source : Mr Venkat Iyer, IRFCA)

    This is regarding the appointment of Monitors. For TLMs, we require a minimum of 1000 Confirmed TLs. For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

    @all: IRI is a PUBLIC information website, like Wikipedia. The voluntarily posted Blogs, Train/Station Tips, Train/Station Pics, Polls, Train TTs, PNRs, etc. comprise the permanent publicly viewable and searchable repository of IRI.
