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.
Highlights of a complete journey from Chennai to Bengaluru in the only diesel hauled train between the two cities - Shirdi Express

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?
