Trip to MDU from TJ via TPJ. Kindly take time and go through friends... Point wise not picture wise... 1.Booked in 12083 Janshatabdi and 12635 Vaigai SF Combo. 2.JS came to TJ by 15.58 and... more...
left by 16.00 with TNP WDM.3A 16297. My D6 coach contained all intermediate travellers like me. 3.Noticed Doubling works till SGM. ALK atm PF 3 works are in full swing but the earlier construction of this station turned difficult to do so and joining of tracks. Tracks came till TJ outer but still not into station. BAL TO TPJ doubling works completed. 4.Just ripped past ALK and THUNDERED BAL and TRB. 5.Slowed down at SGM for track change crawled and sped up. 6.MPS of SGM TPJ New line is 95KMPH. 7.Slowed down at GOC , Crossed TPJ KIK DEMU and trolled at TPJ outer for 5 minutes. Then Arrived TPJ at 17.00 PF 1. It did undergo loco change and not the same loco reversed, some ED WDM 3X accompanied it aftermath. Completed the process within 10 minutes. 8.TPJ KRR Pass was linked with ED WDM 3D 11108 on PF 1 9.Within 5-10 minutes of departure of 12083, 16861 arrived TPJ at PF 6 with a surprise offlink ED WDG 3A 1349X. Once MNM TPJ MQ arrived at PF 5 with full rajdhani liveried rake, 16861 chugged out from TPJ with its tiny rake and by 17.30 for on time TPJ MQ Pass left. 10.Then later by 17.45 56711 came into TPJ 15 minutes late with GOC WDG 3A 147XX transferred from other DLS and cream and red liveried. Later the same bogie was handed over to ED WAP 4 2278X. 11.TPJ KKDI DEMU was parked in PF 1 and left at 18.15. From this I understood that Vaigai is late.The shocking thing was Himsagar slip was expected on 19.45 at TPJ against its scheduled time 11.50. 12.Then Vaigai Came with RPM WAP 7 30342 at 19.15 at PF 1 and left at 19.20. I cud see some KL passengers boarding this and many people used it for TPJ MDU. It is better that MDU PUU pass 56700/1 is extended to TPJ. 13.Had a very good run by Vaigai.The track towards MDU in MPA had some TSR of 20 for which it was trolled then picked up speed.Crossed 22628 at KLS. 14.Regarding KFC TMP doubling it is complete in certain stretch except the mini ghat section enroute. No sign of tracks there. Slowed at TMP and entered DG at PF 4. Immediately after we enter, 16780 left DG from PF 3 with some GOC WDG 3A. You can see the last pic. 15. Thundered thereafter, Crossed 12638 Pandian after KQN Scissor crossing, also crossed 16235 at ABI with some ED alco.Hardly chugging TNP alco powered 22624 Mahal SF crossed us in KON. 16.Reached MDU by 21.40 at PF 3. 56700 was parked in PF 4 and 16339 expected at PF 2. And 12662 came to MDU with ED WDM 3A couples...💑 17. Kindly tolerate my low quality picture. Was taken with Nokia 150. THANK YOU....
