Presenting a complete Journey compilation on board the Shatabdi Express connecting Chennai and Mysore, though i did the journey only till Bengaluru. The Journey happened in 2014, the times when Bengaluru City was the only halt of this train. We begin our journey from Chennai on an early February morning and make our way out of the city twisting and turning through the initial 5kms. Once the mainline is joined at Perambur it is a non stop run all the way to Bengaluru. The early morning arrivals come in thick and fast. The third and fourth line between Tiruvallur and Arakkonam were just taking shape and hence the customary switch to slow line happened at Tiruvallur. The
AJJ WAP1 hauling us was utilized fully and Katpadi was reached in exactly 105mins. The train used to skip Katpadi earlier and hence the slow crawl into the mainline even as the daily Superfast from Thiruvananthapuram made its way out. The run through to Jolarpettai was butter smooth, and the 84km distance was gulped down in just 60mins. After switching to the Bengaluru bound lines here, the ascent began into the ghats bordering Andhra Pradesh and Tamilnadu. The WAP1 made little work of the 15coach load and barreled ahead undeterred of the continuous grades and curves. Pretty soon we were knocking the gates of Bengaluru as we descended the down grade and cruised into Whitefield, subsequently thrashing Krishnarajapuram and slowing down for a speed restriction at Baiyyappanahalli. The journey took 5mins lesser than the ETA, and was one of the more memorable journeys I have ever done on this route.
Please do watch completely, and let me know what you think

Presenting highlights from a trip on the Chennai Shirdi Superfast Express from Chennai to Krishnarajapuram. It is the only train to cover the 345km distance between Chennai and Krishnarajapuram, with diesel locos though the section is completely electrified. This train covers the 345 km between Chennai and Krishnarajapuram in 5 hours and 18mins, at an average speed of 65 kmph. Led by WDM3A twins from Tondiarpet, enjoy the Shirdi express'
amazing run as it moves through Northern Tamil Nadu, touches a bit of Andhra Pradesh and finally ventures into Karnataka. Notable crossings include the Intercity barrage from Tirupati, Bangalore& Coimbatore, followed by the West coast express, Yeshvantpur Hatia Superfast, Sanghamitra Express& Seshadri Express. As we near Bangalore, the Double Decker and Brindavan Expresses cross us.

Now this train is entering its last days with Diesel Traction. It is sad for some railfans. Now it got AJJ WAP1 between MAS and GTL(or DMM) yesterday.

Is this e loco link permanent between MAS and DMM? Or will be switched to GOC/ED/KJM WDP4D end to end since there was a WDM3A loco failing?

A Late Monsoon Journey from Tirupati to Bengaluru
A November Monsoon Journey between Tirupati and Bengaluru, on board the 22618 Tirupati Bengaluru City Intercity Express. It was one of those journeys where the rains were tormenting for most part of the ride, the departure was delayed from Tirupati itself, by about 20mins. The run upto Katpadi with halts at Pakala Jn. and Chittoor was above average. Throw in a few crossings and the spotting of the twin ALCo hauled Venkatadri express at Chittoor and the run to Katpadi
was over. At Katpadi the late running Chennai Coimbatore Intercity was spotted, while my train ground to a halt on pf4, the RPM WAP7 hauled Intercity pulled out of pf1 while crossing the Bangalore Arakkonam Passenger. Twilight kicked in after Ambur and it was a rapid chase all the way upto Jolarpettai; where we had an unscheduled halt. Post Jolarpettai, with nothing to hinder our path, the ED WAP4 on a rampage, barring a couple of unscheduled halts, the run was fantastic. The crossings came in thick and fast, and we pulled into pf4 of Krishnarajapuram with a marginal delay of 10mins, while the Bengaluru Kanniyakumari express was getting ready for departure.
