4 parts :-
#Bhandup - #Panvel
#Panvel - #Chiplun
#Chiplun - #Ratnagiri
#Ratnagiri - #Kankavli
All the 4 together called as #MONSOON_BLAST
Lets start.................
#Bhandup - #Panvel
We left our home and arrived Bhandup. As i was walking on Platform #1, Train 17032 - Hyderabad - Mumbai Express passed Bhandup from PF #4. Then while waiting for the local, Chennai - Mumbai Express passed Bhandup with SRK shtyle looking loco WDM-3a :P . After MAS Exp crossed, the Ambernath Local arrived which was fully packed. We got down at Thane at 13:05. As we were walking from FOB, the announcement made " Kripaya laksha dya, 01039 dn Mumbai - Pernem Ganpati special aata thodya velat PF kramank 7 var apekshit aahe. When i reached my coach, Varanasi - Mumbai Mahanagri Express arrived on PF #6. Till it depart Thane, a lone WCAM-3 #21970 passed from PF#7. As i was taking pics of WCAM-3, i sawed our Great Konkan Railway Fan and die hard fan of Konkan Kanya Exp, Joshua Mendonca. This was my first meet with an member of IRI. We had a great talk. As we were talking, train #17031 passed Thane PF#5 with WDM 3a Kalyan in full throtle. So my train arrived. This was the time when i have to sat Good Bye to Joshua. Train arrived with WDG-3a Kalyan shed. Coaches of the train had their own Life Insaurance :P . LIC ad was posted on the coaches of the train. As i Entered the train, i was shocked to see that train was fully empty. I kept my bag and got down again. The signal turned double yellow. Now it was the time of "CHAL MERI DHANNU". Train dep TNA and had a great blast inside the Parsik Tunnel. We changed the tracks near Diva Level crossing and passed Diva stn slowly and steadily. My Dhannu curved after Diva and blasted from Dativli. After it passed Dativli, it made to wait near Nilaje. Reason was the level crossing was not clossed. So the level crossing was clossed. Train dep slowly and stopped at Nilaje. Train almost halt for 5 min at Nilaje. We crossed Ratnagiri Dadar Pass and Kerala Sampark Kranti after Nilaje. Dhannu slowed down near Panvel. It entered PF #5 as Pune Bhusaval Exp via Panvel was standing on PF#7. BCNA Rake was standing on main line at Panvel with AJJ shed WAG5a.
Arrived Panvel 20 min late
103 km/hr was highest speed recorded
