Subah-e-SINGRAULI - Saam-e-Barkakana , Journey commenced from singrauli on varanasi intercity , later on took chopan - ranchi intercity from chopan till barkakana and finally Ranchi Garibrath from barkakana to New delhi .
Presenting some random glimpses of seldom visited #CIC section .
PS- Do railfanning if you are not allergic to dust . Plzz travel in 3A , if possible close windows of sleeper or be on upper bearth of sleeper as you will face heavy coal dust at singrauli and after tori till barkakana and i had to change

Railfanning karna tha bhai , GHD par 8 hour wait karne se aacha socha aage ka route explore karte hai . Aur kam se kam ghd 50-60 baar gaya hounga par yeh pehli baar main ghd se dto side gaya . Else har baar Ghd se dehri jata tha kyuki udar native place hai .

  
Wonderful capture...Rahul Sir!

A new platform No - 2 has been constructed at OBR? Is it due to CPU - KTE doubling?

Really missing those beautiful sceneries in CIC strech. That parts of Chotanagpur hills , those beautifully curved rail routes through bold mountains & forests under the beautiful sun rays of morning & evening. Those chugging of diesel locos in single line section & most importantly railway stations like Renukut , Obra dam & Singrauli . Really those memories still haunts me.
