1. Signal given for Amravathi
2. Loco incharge - LGD P4 upto GNT.
3 . Gajraj
4. Closer look of twins
5. Taking the by pass route. 10 mins of halt @ SCMN and 10mins
to leave our view to the by pass line.
Wasting time, money and resources and bluffing to the whole world that we are saving time by not entering VSKP.

High reach pantograph: world record set by Stone India

KOLKATA, India -- The new generation pantograph developed by Stone India for the Indian Railways allows an increase in the highest of the overhead wires (catenary height) from the standard 6 meters to 7.5 meters-setting the world record for the High Reach pantograph for highest catenary for electric locomotives.
Such a device is suitable for locomotives to be used for running double-stack containers as envisaged in the upcoming dedicated freight corridors being implemented by Indian Railways. (enlarge photo)
This will also enable Indian Railways to introduce double-decker passenger trains in high density suburban passenger route. The pantographs have already been commissioned successfully after extensive test by Indian Railways.
Stone India's innovation makes Indian Railway achieve this unprecedented feat to become the only railway in the world to run a train under a 7.5 meter-high contact wire.
The new-design world record pantograph, developed completely in-house, has many other added features, such as twin catenary height of 6 & 7.5 meters, auto upward-force adjustment to improve effective current collection in adverse conditions, thereby enabling reduction in energy consumption and allowing trains to run at much higher speeds.
The new design overcomes the traditional challenge of balancing a high-reach pantograph in double-stack container trains moving at a high speed in adverse wind conditions, hitherto faced by all global suppliers of pantographs.
Stone India Ltd has not only successfully designed and developed the improved pantograph in a record time but did it completely indigenously using its own expertise and with its own R&D setup using cutting edge simulation tools.
The patented new series named as "Omniversal Intelipanto" has been supplied when other multinational companies failed to do so before commencement of the trial by Indian Railway in East Coast Railways which was witnessed by Japanese technical delegation.
The success of this design will not only help saving foreign currency but will benefit Indian Railways by enabling locomotives to run on electricity instead of costly diesel. Additionally this opens up the possibility of Indian Railways even running double-decker passenger trains in high density passenger routes through further increase of catenary height.
The Company plans to adopt this design in all its pantograph and plans to export such world record pantographs to countries, which propose to use electric traction for running double-stack container trains as well as double-decker passenger trains.
Stone India Ltd, a Kolkata based company, which has been serving Indian Railways for more than 77 years has pioneered the introduction of several systems to Indian Railways, including pantographs, used by the electric locomotives and EMUs. So far all these introductions have been through technical collaborations with overseas companies.
This marks the beginning of Stone India's major self-initiative & achievement to arrive at breakthrough innovative solutions for customers, which are generally fraught with skepticism of unachievable goals

Now running pantos dont go upto that height ?
Suburbans cannot have DD due to weight issue, more the weight, more is the power needed to run those locals at high speed.
I am looking for a modified version of DD coaches for AC 3 tier.

Yes, I am not fan of locos and that where WAG7's are found in abundance in VSKP area. If Its WAG6 or WAP4, its a WOWWW factor for us.

Now @ VZM, Pf3.
Prasanthi left from Pf1. Had it been given to Pf2, Amravathi passengers would have caught it to reach VSKP.
Will update whether 18047 halts @ SCMN or not.
I request
non Vskp admins/FM not to update the tech halts @ SCMN.

I agree, extension would definitely add better performance or change TT to ensure that pax can catch mail.
