Patalpani Kalakund Heritage train
Full journey.
It was Christmas day and we railfans came to take first heritage ride from all over India.
of us were meeting for the first time.
We met at MHOW railway station. Some of us were waiting at ticket counter right from 7 am though train ride was at 11 AM.
We bought tickets.We had Poha(riceflakes) in breakfast.
Special rakes were shunted by normal locomotive then nicely decorated locomotive came and got attached.
Many railway official, media person and other passengers are seen in the video.
locomotive was getting decorated.
We started train journey at 1105.
It was nice journey with on board narration by railway official.
Train was having rear camera which gives back side view.
Train was equipped with pantry having coffee machine and snacks.
Washroom was clean and tidy.
We reached Patalpani station where we took 20 minutes break.We waited for crossing opposite train. Token exchange can be seen in the video. Semaphore signals adds more beauty to meter gauge journey.
We left for Patalpani waterfall where we took around 40 minutes break.
we had sugarcane juice there.It was hot day but climate was pleasant.
Next we started to Kalakund. In between Choral river and bridges over that can be seen. Bridge and tunnels are very scenic on this route.
Train moves through rural India which shows real countryside.
Bridge shown in video in rebuilded as old bridge is damaged.
Finally we reached Kalakund station where kalakand (कलाकंद) is famous.
Here we halted for 2.5 hours.
cost for ride is INR 120 one way including complementary tea/ coffee.
Stay tuned for next part.
It was best journey in 2018.
Wish you happy new year.
