Hi all, This is my trip report on 12164 Chennai LTT SF. on 28th i boarded the train, with my coach being B5 and seat being 71 which was side lower next to the entrance door which made my railfanning experience much more easier

So the Journey begins after a meetup with Sakthivel @MAS, and the train departs bang on time at 18:20 Hrs, The Loco being a Grand Ghaziabad WAP7 37170 for the 12164 SF, and RPM WAP7 30419 for the 12163 SF which arrived MAS Earlier at 04:30pm.

The Run Upto Arrakonam was speedy after we accelerated Out of BBQ. Overtaking a Suburban Local in the process, and so the run upto Mumbai Begins. Enroute we cross the Vande Bharat bound to Chennai, and after a quick run we arrive Arrakonam 15mins delayed where we crossed first the MAS Bound Double Decker. And while we halt at AJJ, the announcement of #13352: Alleppey Dhanbad Express (or Bokaro Express as it was announced) was soon to come on PF1 Where we were Stabled. And once we departed Arakkonam, i quickly had my dinner which i had packed from Home, just lemon rice for night. after dinner we made Consecutive Halts at TRT, HX, and Renigunta where we Overtook #17487: Tirumala 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...
