An off-beat location, sheer delight for railfans
.
Palasdhari is a small, but a very scenic station and an ideal spot for railfanning. It is a RF paradise and absence of RPF and people make it even better. The place is heaven in monsoons with greenery and waterfalls around.
.
Palasdhari
...
more...
is situated at the foothills of Bor Ghats. While going to Pune from Mumbai, the Bor Ghats begin right after Palasdhari. The train takes an upward sloping curve towards right.
.
Three lines converge at Palasdhari, the CSTM-PUNE Mainline (double) and single electrified track to Khopoli
.
The area has speed restrictions of around 60 kmph due to entry / exit of Ghat area.
.
How to reach:
From Mumbai: Local upto Karjat and walk 3 km ahead to PDI
.
From Pune: Take a train to KJT and come back 3 km to PDI. Can also ask for lift in KYN WAG-7 bankers which return light from LNL-KJT.
.
RF Attraction:
> Trains coming downhill from PUNE side
> Trains going uphill towards PUNE, with WAG-7 triplets as bankers
> EMUs
> Bankers returning light to KJT
> Freights

Soumiz one small correction , there are Locals upto Khopoli so no need to walk From Karjat to PDI , One needs to board Khopoli Local ( less Frequent from CSTM / more frequent from Karjat) and directly get down at PDI and start trekking.

One more correction: "Three lines converge at Palasdhari, the Karjat-Lonavala Mainline (Triple, NOT just Double) and single electrified track to Khopoli"

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
