Thanks for that! I am a retired rail person.
I was a train manager on the Eurostar trains from London to Paris/Brussels.
I might try and find some old ties we wore to give as gifts to staff I meet on train.

Oh wow...that's brilliant.... I would love to hear rail related stories from you about Eurostar & rails in UK.....By the way as a "train manager", what was your nature of duty on the Eurostar trains???
I really love this aspect of railfanning as a passion as it can connect you with people across borders. Cheers.

I've been retired for about 15yrs now! Basically in charge of everything on train and all the safety and operational issues. Need to be conversant with rules and regs of 4 railways. UK-France-Belgium and Eurotunnel. Trains travelled at maximum speed of 186mph and 100mph through tunnel. Quite a tressful job at times.

Re# 2183441-15            Tags   Past Edits
That's really nice to hear.... Pretty impressive speeds on offer in your country....Indian Railways lags behind in the aspect of speed. But we are slowly & steadily catching up. Gatimaan Express is certified to run at 100 mph for a major part of its 188 km run. I wanted to ask you a question related to Eurostar trains. I once saw a documentary on them on Discovery Channel. The narrator said that on curves, their speed reduces to 100 km/h and he termed it as "ridiculous". Is it true that 100 km/h speed is perceived that way in your country????Cheers

That was probably when the high speed line between London and Eurotunnel hadn't been completed. But then again I don't ever recall the train running at 50kph round bends.
High speed lines have very few bends indeed for obvious reasons.
By the way one of my duties was also to be able to drive the train in an emergency. Obviously we then had to do all the training for that and take regular assessments.

One of main reasons for flying into Delhi is to take Radjhani train to Goa.
Also we want to travel on the Shadtbati train to Agra and back. For two reasons really.
1. To experience that train as I hear in 1AC breakfast served at seat. Are all seats around a table?
2. In Agra it would be criminal not

to visit the Taj Mahal. I think it's do-able in a day trip. Any thoughts anyone.

I would suggest a 2-way itinerary. Take the Gatimaan Express from Nizamuddin to Agra in the morning & return by Shatabdi in the evening. In that way, you will get to experience India's fastest train i.e. Gatimaan & the aura of Shatabdi in one go.

If you follow the Gatimaan-Shatabdi Combo then you get close to 11 hours in Agra from 10 am to 9 pm which I feel is sufficient enough. The only problem is that in the return, you will arrive Delhi close to 11 PM so you will have to arrange accommodation beforehand in order to avoid late night hassles. But don't go on Friday because Taj Mahal is closed on that day.

Better to take Duronto to Mumbai and then a connecting train to Goa. Or another option is taking a train from Howrah to Ernakulam/Kochi & then another connecting train to Goa. But the journey time will be more in the latter.

This is the nearest station for Swami Samarth Maharaj Akkalkot Math. A pathway exists from the station to this place. But it is a very badly maintained station. By the look of it, its very scary & dark after the sun sets.
