Weekly blog is here.
Week of 13th October 2019 to 19th October 2019.
3 back to back days of RailFanning 15th, 16th and 17th October 2019. Again meeting many IRI members.
This week's blog is something different from the previous ones. A new route/division coverage from me. ADRA Division. 🙏
tourists spots are there in ADRA division. VSU is one of them.
Day 1 and 2 (15th and 16th October 2019) Pictures 1 to 19.
Day 3 (17th October 2019) Pictures 20 to 27.
Picture 1 :- Tikiapara Large SB captured from EMU while going to SRC to board 12885 Aranyak Express for VSU. (Trip was totally a personal family one for attending a cousin's marriage).

Picture 3 :- One of the many new EOGs received by SER parked between PF 2s and 4s of KGP.
