Train:-76854 TPJ-KIK DEMU
Route:-Thanjavur-Karaikkal Electrification
Guys this is the electrification update journey from TJ to KIK. TPJ-KIK DEMU arrived TJ PF3 around 12PM running 40mins late within no time CBE-MV JS arrived with GOC WDP4B 40077 at PF1 but we departed ahead of JS and accelerated out of TJ. As soon as Main line to Chennai diverged, wired poles started. We blasted thorugh abandoned Maariamman Kovil at full MPS 90 Kmph!! Wiring was done till Saliyamangalam outer but the station's portal works almost over as wiring alone needs to be done the same is applied for Kordachery!! Post Saliyamangalam unerected poles were found but near Koyilvenni once again poles with Clamps started. We then arrived Nidamangalam you can see some some poles on platform 2 and 3. Post NMJ upto some distance only pits were found then Poles with Clamps started again and almost the same till TVR only at Kulikkarai portals works just started!! At Tiruvarur, KKDI line almost linked to Platform 4&5 whose works were over,even some poles came at pf 2&3.After a 50min we Crossed KIK-TPJ Pass with GOC WDG3A 14663 then we departed and erected poles were found post TVR. Post Kuthur only pits were found but on approaching Kizhvelur again erected poles were found. At Kizhvelur we OTed and Xed goods also the station portal works just started. Post Kizhvelur only pole pits were found till Sikkal. Post Sikkal no pits were found. Finally arriving Nagapattinam PF3 and Crossed 11018 KIK-LTT with unexpected link KYN WDM3D TWINS 11455+11390 patiently waiting at PF1 and found some closed pits at PF 2&3.Then we curved out of NGT and saw few pits near Nagore also few more at PF 2&3. Post NCJ good number of pits found and came till Karaikkal!! Finally arrived KIK at PF2 and saw GOC WDG3As with both Tea Garden and Kamban Rake at PF 1,3 respectively!!! Thus Covering up whole TJ-KIK Electrification Process!!! It is found that pace is high till TVR and slow post TVR!! Hardly poles came till Kizhvelur,but Pits had reached KIK,except some places b/w Sikkal and Nagore.On the end just see Karaikkal port and seashore!!!
