MAS to HWH by Coromandel Exp. - Part 4 (Jan 2000) : This video covers the final leg of my journey from Bhubaneswar to Howrah, with Kazipet WDM2C doing the honors all the way. At Bhubaneswar, I went up to the loco and requested for a footplate. To my pleasant surprise, I was allowed in for a short loco ride till Cuttack. And so, I was able to savor the section till Cuttack from a Baldie cab. This included two single-line crossings (one being the Tapaswini Exp.) and the two bridges over the Kuakhai and Kathajodi rivers. Other highlights of the journey are as follows:
- Crossing Purshottam Exp. before Barang
Halt at Cuttack
- Crossing the Mahanadi river
- Skipping Bhadrakh
- Crossing the Dhauli and Falaknuma Expresses in quick succession
- Halt at Balasore
- Race with a freight train just before Kharagpur
- Overtaking the East Coast Exp. at Kharagpur
- Crossing the Howrah-LTT Exp. just outside Kharagpur
- Crossing the WAP4-hauled Gitanjali Exp. (meeting of two SER legends)
- Meeting the Shantiniketan Exp. just before Howrah
- Entering Howrah

    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...

So all of these features will be REMOVED. We'll have ONLY BLOGGING - quick upload of pics/videos/audio, etc. You may attach...

Previously, we had different systems of "Followed Blogs", "PNR History", "My PNR Posts", "My PNR Post Predictions", "Stamp Alerts", etc. which were somewhat confusing. Hereafter: For PNRs: 1. You may add ANY PNR to your bookmarks through the "Add Bookmark" link in the...
