So presenting to you travelogue & some pics of my recent train journey (Etawah trip) . #part1
(It is my first travelogue , so their might be some mistakes, so please try to overlook them. Thanks)
I had left my house at 4:45 am in the morning. Reached the station at about 5:20 am & headed towards pf 1. Till reaching pf it was already 5:25 . To my suprise the train was not yet placed. On the adjacent pf was standing Chhapra bound train. After a few mins rakes were
shunted from eastern side of the pf. It was first time that i was first to enter a coach.(a diff feeling :p). Due to huge rush & chaos outside i wasn't able to spot the loco but it was a wap-4 most probably from GZB or CNB shed. When i settled down on my seat i saw that a seat just ahead mine was emergency. (Now u can think how lucky a RF is , doing morning journey & getting emergency window) . I was desperate to capture but couldn't as any one could come.After standing at pf for about 25-30 mins we started. As EW was still empty, i thanked god that now i could do some Railfanning till ON.we slowly moved out the station & i spotted a ET WAM-4 #21315 resting at pf end. moving a lil ahead towards Lko yard , i was able to spot DD rakes as well as rakes of ljn mas express. We crawled past Alambagh west cabin (prev. Lko west). I was capturing pf side, untill a BRC wap-4e #22702 crossed us with indb rjbp express. A gzb wap 1 #22030 was too resting in yard. Since it was morning sun had just risen up from dawn, & its golden sunlight falling had make environment even picturesque to capture.
More coming ahead .
