Yup......the whole route was packed with Eastern Ghats and the monsoon just gave it that much more added beauty. :)
Which train you took BTW?
Sometimes we come across a beautiful stretch here on IRI but dont know which train to take which covers the entire section in daylight.
I was on 12773 SC-SHM A.C Express on it's inaugural run.Actually i was not all expecting to undertake the journey by a train since i booked my tickets 2 or a day prior to my journey date but luckily as i was checking for ticket availability i came across this train which was showing good vacancy so.....it just all came together,totally totally out of nowhere.I guess the timings have been tweaked since then because now it reaches RJY after noon but when i took the train it came close to 2100 hrs and was running pretty late as well.
Bas ek chai ki dukaan ki kami hai, nahi tho poora din udhar guzaar sakte hain
Meri nazar baaine taraf nahi padi.Shayad uss taraf station master ke kamre ke saath saath chai ki dukaan bhi mil jaaye.I hope. :D
Vishakapatnam-based WDM2 locomotives 16722 and 17606 (DLW-Alco RSD29/DL560C) wait for a road at Khantapara, south of Balasore, with the Chennai-Kolkata (Howrah) Coromandal Express.
Yes i only once went to VSKP in 2002 .....then trains from KGP were diesel loco hauled
See the destination board of train attached to loco too.....great
KGP, VSKP ALCO's used to rule BZA - KGP stretch til ELCO's took over.
And yes, board was mostly given to some trains. Coromandel was one of the high priority in those days (unlike now, where it enjoys priority but not much in some sections.)
