Had a great race, yesterday morning, with the Venkatadri Express between MRM and RE.
I was starting from Harini resort near Mamanduru with my friends after a 97 batch together and an over night stay at the resort. The train with twin diesel locos crossed us at a distance. Few minutes in to the drive, i managed to catch up to the train and started accelerating to catch up to the twin locos. I was already over 100 KMPH speed and nearing 110. I was just about 5 coaches behind, all too excited that i was about to win the race. Then suddenly train, which was till then cruising at 90, picked up speed and touched 110. Due to bumpy road,
i had to take the foot off the pedal couple of times and then speed up to 110 KMPH, but the train kept cruising at 110 and left me behind. I had to stop for the police barricade few kms before the amar raja factor and by then i had completely lost race. It took me another 10 mins to reach the RE railway station and the train was already on the platform.
I wish i had my camcorder handy to capture the exciting race and chugging of the twin diesel locos. Anyways the race was like the cherry on the cake to finish a great weekend with friends.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
