Nice pics! No publicity ok. But then also villagers should have come for this joyous occasion.

Yes, that too is true. Some reasons I can think is - the villages are far from the station.
Other is no mobilisation. See in reply 8 pics. One political party members were there giving pamphlets to all and also their party scarf.
my other inaugurals of new line - Hassan had a lot publicity in papers and major towns were on the way, so a lot of crowd, all along.
In Chikkabenakal line - political parties had used tractors to ferry villagers to the stations. Also served them pulav and kesari bath (villagers brought boxes and vessels to take home too, apart from eating there :)). In both the trains - politicians of all parties travelled, so a lot of hype, puja, publicity and mobilisation of party workers.
Here only some officials, interested local people and some workers who worked to build the line travelled.

GTL division has so many EMDs WDG4s of GY DLS. All high performing ones, but here for display they have kept Alco. They too are like our railfans who love GY's Kingfisher livery Alco :)
It is not full model? Only SHF portion can be seen.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
