Tribute to someone who is responsible for germination of rail-fan within me.. I still remember the time as a kid when I counted days on fingers to travel from CNB to ALD. Those chacha chaudhry comics which I bought to read onboard n finish before train's departure..My well in advance arrival on PF#2 corner to see the shunting process...n finally the musical note of sparking when panto touched the overhead wires which is gone currently with the smoke of WDMs..Those mandates by parents to sit in the rear end coaches so that less effort is required while exiting at ALD. It always made me sad because my distance from loco was increased..hehe.. Those curves on the single line from Central to Chandari where we were amazed to see the walls of nearby houses too close to us, as if we r roaming on the city's streets..The wait for FTP to get...
samose n pakode, the only stop between CNB-ALD at that time...Missing all now!!!!
Thanks Chauri Chaura... :)

Nice description ... there is a photo on IRI of KOAA - DLI Lal Quila Exp cruising through the tracks, passing by the closely situated boundary walls while entering Kanpur City. Thanks for these photos out of which I like Pic-4 the most :-)

Yes.. this is the curve I was quoting. But years back it was only single line n the boundary walls were very close to the tracks..was an entirely different experience when the train passed thru this point..

Travel SAFE

1. RailFanning does NOT MEAN dangerous pics/videos.
2. Doorplating pics/youtube videos are strictly FORBIDDEN in IRI.
3. Take plenty of food pics and other safe pics.
4. Write human interest narratives to make the pics interesting.
5. Enjoy blogging and travelling SAFELY.

REMEMBER: YOUR LIFE is the most precious thing, NOT RailFanning.

    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...
