WAP7 First Time powers DURONTO Express | HWH -YPR | Indian Railways click here
Catch the extremely rare spotting of the Howrah - Yesvantpur ( HWH - YPR ) Duronto Express hauled by a WAP7 Locomotive. WAP7 is presently the most powerful Passenger Class AC Locomotive of the Indian Railways with a continuous Power output of 6,000 HP and a Top permissible Speed of 140 KPH. This is probably the firs time a WAP7 is hauling this train as the crew that handles the train from Howrah to Kharagpur were not
trained to handle 3 Phase locomotives earlier. The regular link for this train is a conventional WAP4 Locomotive from SRC / Santragachi Electric Shed.
A special thanks to the Loco Pilot for acknowledging my presence and flashing the head lamps along with hello honks, very few LP's bother to acknowledge the Rail fans.
Train : 12245 /12446 Howrah - Yesvantpur - Howrah

South Eastern Railways , Howrah.

Northeast Frontier METER GAUGE Train (End of a Glorious Era) NFR MG click here
The Northeast Frontier Railways (NFR) Meter Gauge Line from Lumding to Badarpur also known as the Barak Valley, a 221-km railway track that was built by the British through the most difficult terrains and mountains in Assam’s Dima Hasao district was also an engineering marvel comprising of 37 tunnels and 586 bridges that came in to operations in the year 1903.The line was primarily constructed to transport tea, coal and timber produced in the
upper Assam region.Post the Partition of Bangladesh in 1947 the Lumding-Badarpur section however became the only life-line for land-locked Tripura, Mizoram, the Barak Valley in southern Assam as also south-eastern Manipur due to the borders.
The 111 year old MG line became history in 2014 to make way for a broad gauge track as a part of the uni-gauge Project of Indian Railways. Presently Broad Gauge Services have began on this line initially Freight Services were started and now the Passenger and Express Trains have become functional connecting the Northeast to the rest of India. Lumding-Badarpur section belongs to the Lumding division of Northeast Frontier Railways. Badarpur is a important Junction from where the lines branch towards Silchar and Agartala.
The video is a compilation of the Train Journey on the Meter Gauge Brarak Valley Express from Lumding to Silchar. Enjoy the true rich beauty of the least explored North East.
The MG Trains that ran on this section are Lumding - Silchar Cachar Express and Barak Valley Express, Lumding - Agartala Express and the Lumding - Halflong Hill Queen Express.The line is highly dominated by the Freight Trains.
