Every evening at 8pm, the Superfast Rajdhani Express bound for the National Capital Delhi, gears up for departure on pf8 of KSR Bengaluru. I have seen this train from the time it used to depart at 18:35 hrs, a 17 or 18 coach train, it was usually hauled by a Kazipet (KZJ) ALCo. Over the years, the departure time went from 18:35 hrs to 20:20 hrs and is now 20:00 hrs. The loco link also changed; Krishnarajapuram (KJM) EMDs took over from the KZJ ALCos. And now,
the electric link which used to bring it upto Secunderabad Jn. is continuing all the way, the Lallaguda (LGD) WAP-7s are in charge. As for the rolling stock, that went from the classic cream & orange ICF to the red & grey LHB coaches in April 2012. The train also saw some alterations in frequency, from four days a week during the ICF days, to running with a different train number on other three days, with a small change in the route; to now running daily with the same number throughout. But the one thing that remained constant over the years is, the departure from pf-8; which, to the best of my memory, hasn't changed any time.

Seen here is LGD's white stallion, WAP-7 30713, all set to depart with the 22691 KSR Bengaluru - H. Nizamuddin Rajdhani Express.

    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...
