Compilation of Indian Railways Trains On Curves
This is a compilation of a few videos I captured near Aushapur village - near Ghatkesar, Telangana back in April 2015, a few days after moving into Hyderabad. This was my first RF trip in SCR and I am thankful to both Prithvi and Ashok sir for taking me along. Some of the videos in this compilation have been previously uploaded by me as well - so please excuse me if you get a feeling of deja vu while seeing some of the clips!

This is a compilation of videos taken during my trip from Hyderabad to Mumbai onboard the 12702 Hussainsagar Express. The monsoons had just started and thanks to some rains, the countryside had transformed into a carpet of green. It was beautiful! All these videos were captured using the Honor 5X from Huawei. While the videos came out great, the phone has an issue with wind noise - which is why I had to use the background music.

This video was captured while me and a bunch of other railfans were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Spanish-bulit Talgo coaches. Upon hearing the sound of an oncoming train, we fired our cameras on. However, instead of Talgo, it was the 22659 Kochuveli - Dehradun Superfast Express on its way to its next halt - Surat. Nevertheless, I went ahead and recorded the video.

Talgo Train in India: Spanish High Speed Train Undergoing Trials in India
Spanish made high speed trains are undergoing trials in India. Known as Talgo trains, these coaches are lighter than LHB coaches that are currently used in India. They can run faster than existing coaches on existing infrastructure. This is the last phase of the talgo trials in India where the train would be run from Delhi to Mumbai to see how much time it can save over the current fastest trains - the Mumbai Delhi Rajdhani Express. In this video, the talgo train is being taken back to Delhi following the first 130 km/hr trial run. There are two more trial runs at 140 km/hr and 150 km/hr that...
This video is from the first full Talgo trial run that was done between New Delhi and Mumbai Central. Captured at Palghar, the train was running late due to track flooding caused by incessant overnight rains in the Palghar to Southern Gujarat area. This trial was carried out at a speed of 130 km/hr. Another trial is scheduled in the same week - this time, at a higher speed when the train would be run at 150 km/hr.
