I was surprised to see 16516 completely empty; there were only 5 people in my coach till MAJN. The train got filled somewhat only in SBHR. Twin GY-WDG4 were attached as bankers to push my train till SKLR. The next part of my route was completely breathtaking, with 55 tunnels and about 300 bridges through the majestic western ghats. The mountains were covered with a green carpet! This section is truly the best railfanning route in the ghats. Just occupy a door for 3 hours from SBHR to SKLR, on the left side of the train.
we crossed Hassan, there was a huge slack for the train and arrived before time in ASK and waited for 45 mins to allow the 12080 JS to overtake and proceed to SBC. After a quick snack of idlis, the Bangalore shivamogga passenger entered ASK. As we entered ASK, 11005 DR-PDY chalukya express left towards YPR. When entering YPR, we had to wait for 11005 to proceed towards PDY! At TTR we crossed the YPR-HRR LHB intercity, which was completely empty. This train seriously does not deserve the LHB coaches. We crossed gol gumbaz towards SUR in TK. We were halted again at Golhalli and chikkabanavara due to platform constraints at YPR probably. The mighty SWR Rani chennamma crossed at BAW. Finally the train arrived at YPR at 22.15 on PF# 5.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@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,...
