Seen in video is 12978/Marusagar Express hauled by Bhagat Ki Kothi [BGKT] WDP-4B #40039 in LHF mode traversing over Shashtri River Bridge, Sangameshwar Road in Konkan Railways. 12978/Marusagar Express is India'a longest running train with an EMD link. Roaring echo sounds of EMD can be heard before it approaches due to surrounding hills. Also display of stunning breaking can be seen at end of video due to caution in Purchuri Tunnel. Shashtri River Bridge is between Bhirkund Tunnel and Purchuri Tunnel.
The Marusagar Express is a weekly express train that runs between Ajmer and Ernakulam, connecting Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka to Kerala. The train runs through four zones of Indian Railways, traveling 2859 km in around 47 hours. There
are 29 halts along the way. It starts from Ajmer on Friday morning and reaches Ernakulam Junction on Sunday early morning, and starts back to Ajmer on Sunday evening to reach Ajmer on Tuesday afternoon. The word "MaruSagar" essentially means "Desert-Ocean". The word "Maru" refers to the Thar Desert in Rajasthan and the word "Sagar" refers to the ocean (the Arabian Sea). Thus, the train connects the desert state of Rajasthan to the Arabian Sea coast in the West. It travels from Ajmer in Rajastan to Ernakulam, in Kerala, passing through the towns of Jaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Kota, Nagda, Ratlam Junction, Vadodara, Panvel, Ratnagiri, Goa, Mangalore, Kasaragod, Cannanore, Kozhikode and Thrissur Railway Station on the way. After Vadodara, the train travels along the western coast of India beside the Arabian Sea.
Railfans Prathamesh Yeram and Arzan Kotval were there along with me on this Konkan trip.

Friend, Rajdhani trains connect national capital Delhi with other cities of India, so it cannot be Jaipur-Tvm Rajdhani
