Presenting all my third audio blog EXCLUSIVELY for 3 Phase lovers(WAP7,in particular). I had taken the Double Decker Express from SBC to MAS hauled by Royapuram's 5th HOG white beast 30482, a marvellous loco(known to be glued with CBE Shatabdi). My coach was C1(second from the loco) and the rake was powered by HOG which meant a musical treat of twin tone 3 phase honking. 30426 had been freed from DD.
Date of capture-21/11/2017.
Audio description:
I recorded these sounds at door in the EOG(that was next to the WAP7) end. Enjoy the twin tone honking in full volume with some furious track sounds.
Clip1:WAP7 gives a long honk as we depart from SBC.
Clip2:Recorded from KPN(includes departure and the honking show when we depart) till somewhere after MAR in the ghat section of SWR.
Clip3:KPD outer till our arrival on PF.No.2. Lalbagh crossed us with 304XX loco here.
Clip4:Departure from KPD. WAP7 silences WAG7(link of Silichar-Trivandrum) and exits KPD. Recorded till somewhere near MCN.
Clip5:Continuation of the above clip where we cross MAQ SF at WJR.
Clip6:Recorded between AJJ and TRL.
Clip7:We depart after an unscheduled halt at TRL outer where a freight rake crosses our train and we skip TRL and subsequent stations with furious honking and track sounds.
Some observations:
1.RPM WAP7 30341 with MKM SBC passenger.
2.RPM WAP7 30447 with MAS SBC SF.
3.RPM WAP4 22809 with SBC bound Sanghamitra.
4.WAG7(probably BZA) with SCL-TVC.
5.RPM WAP7 30475 with unknown train.
6.RPM WAP7 30436 with ALLP SF.
7. KK with WDP4D(40135,probably) delayed by an hour at BNC. Mail would have departed RT yesterday.
Some LPs travelled from SBC to KJM. They were talking about the links they had been allotted. One had worked with MAS SBC Shatabdi and one with UBL Janshatabdi and one with Humsafar.
