from morning 8.10 to 3 from SBC we dont have any trains. I think it would be good. Considering the crowd for Chennai mail it would be wise to have it as Night Train... :)

I happen to watch a few videos in Youtube on WAP4 and WAP7. Ideally the rear panto gets the power. However in those videos I see front Panto was raised. Is there any specific reason for it??

Re# 987268-4            Tags   Past Edits
During winters, frost is a major problem. When the front panto is raised, it looks like this.. ">".. Now, any frost on the wires will be brushed aside by the panto in the forward direction, and the frost drops/particles will land outside the loco. However, if the rear panto is raised, it looks like "<", and here the frost particles will get deposited on the roof of the loco, which contains DBR and other valuable equipment. There is a risk of them getting damaged due to the frost deposited by the brushing action of the rear panto. For this reason, front panto is used in winter. However, this by no means
is a convincing explanation, and it cannot explain why front panto is not used in rainy season. This is a subject of intense debate, and we have not found any satisfactory explanation from even 2-3 loco pilots, with whom we have spoken. In fact, one may spot electric locos with rear pantos also in winter, though that's quite rare.

Very noisy train, looks like the coupling of the coaches is loose. I travel every week from Bangalore to Chennai and sleep is always disturbed by the noise. It is like a newly learning car driver driving a car and causing jerks while shifting gears. But it is iron...metal...clinking noise...while you are in sound sleep. Never noticed this kind of nuisance in other trains. Wish railway authorities make note of this and take appropriate corrective action.
