Thanks AKS KYN GKP for the correct details.
Few months ago i traveled in coach C1. Basically, I saw the wrong seat mapping with 30 seats in other forum. So, I decided to publish the correct seat map for the public. I didn't know there were only 18 seats in the coach as we were traveling in seat numbers 4, 5, 6 and 7. Sorry for my mistake. But, off course, the seat map will provide the details of the seat position in the coach. Enjoy. :)

No idea. But, overtook a passenger train. I do not know which one it was. By the way the train departed from Gwalior. No overtakes here as all the platform were empty.

Hi Rail Fans,
I am planning to do my first rail fanning by travelling all the way to Delhi from Chennai by Duranto and return by Rajdhani. I would like to capture entire journey with use of some technology. I mean, buy 2 Bluetooth enabled cameras and fix them just above the window from outside and capture all the video from inside with my laptop and store them into hard disk. Sounds interesting? I am looking for a suitable HD camera which should capture images as well as the train sounds; and hopefully with strong battery life; at least 5 hours of continues recording. I could change the battery at scheduled stops.
you have any ideas regarding the camera, please write your opinions. Also, write your suggestions.
