WISHING ALL DEAR MEMBERS OF IRI A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2017!
Thumping Diesels at Kumta on a wet morning : Duronto chases a RO-RO!
On a rainy morning at Kumta, before we headed to Honnavar Sharavathi bridge, we thought of capturing the NZM ERS Duronto Express here. However we also got two bonus ( A freight which can be seen waiting at the station premises and a RO-RO freight) The RO-RO freight was being closely chased by the longest Duronto Express. We expected the RO-RO would be looped here for the

Duronto overtake, but it was not to be. The loaded RO-RO rake headed by a Kalyan WDG-4D skipped Kumta at a sedate speed. 10 minutes later came the longest 12284 Duronto Express powered by its customary ERS WDM-3A locomotive. The Duronto overtake of the RO-RO happened in the next station, Honnavar. Enjoy the beautiful action of the both trains skipping Kumta in beautiful green surroundings.
Train : 12284 H.Nizamuddin Ernakulam Duronto Express

Meter Guage : Honking & smoking YDM4 warns dangerous unmanned railway crossing!
On my recent travel on board the MG passenger train connecting Mavli to Marwar, I was surprised as well as shocked to see large number of unmanned railway crossings in the route. Though most of these unmanned railway crossings are through remote villages , however there are also few unmanned crossings which pass through a few major towns. Due to the absence of level crossing gates, the LP/ALP slow down the train, honk continuously as they approach the LC gate and they accelerate after crossing the LC. Tough job for the crew to maintain safety. As far as i remember there are atleast 80-100 unmanned LC gates in the route

especially between Mavli Junction and Kamil Ghat. The Mavli Marwar section is one of the few existing meter guage route on IR network. Sad it may feel, but some day down the near future, the route is expected to undergo a change from meter guage to broad guage.

This is one way and another what i witnessed in Nainpur-Mandla fort NG route was LC used to be closed by a staff who used to travel in train. Train used to stop before LC and once he goes down and closes LC, train used to move further and wait after crossing LC so that he can board the train again.

Journey highlights Panvel to Karjat : Overtaking offlink Rajdhani & chugging through mountains.
A short journey highlights from Panvel to Karjat section on board the Ernkaulam Pune Express on a monsoon morning. This section has been rarely covered since only very few trains traverse through this section. In the beginning of the video, one can a late running 22414 NZM MAO Rajdhani Express waiting for the starter towards KR behind a live KYN WDG-4D + RTM WDM-3D (failed). The train was held up at Panvel for a decent 20+ minutes as it was made to trail the 12051 Jan Shatabdi Express. Our train gets a starter from Panvel Junction after a 30 minute halt and we proceed towards Karjat through the gradients

To gain something we have to loose something
Good to see more BG coming across India. Many single lines are getting doubled and electrified.

Deepavali special : Furious WDP3A twins closely chasing the Truck train!
Wishing all my dear viewers a HAPPY and PROSPEROUS DEEPAVALI 2016! Got to spend few moments with the train this long holiday season. With lots of shurbs and trees near railway tracks, RF from close by is almost impossible in the Udupi surrounding strech this season and hence this bridge seemed to be the right spot to observe trains. One of my colleagues who is a cyclist gave me his Garmin Virb camera and i thought to test it here. I was not very comfortable to start off with the wide angle view, hence shot the videos in the normal mode. Will be testing the wide angle view with the Garmin

Virb camera in the days to come.
1) As soon as i reached this spot, a plassar machine races towards Barkur from Udupi side.
2) Closely being chased by the fiery WDP-3A twins, a south bound RO-RO rake races towards Suratkal powered by Pune WDG-4#12683 (Captured using Garmin Virb)
3) Then came the much awaited action. Fabulous chugging and honking display by the double WDP-3A powered 22634 NZM TVC SF Express. The LP really got furious seeing three idiots on the bridge who almost risked their life in the name of fun. The first part of video was captured by Canon SX 500 IS over the bridge, next shot was wide angle view captured using Garmin Virb. The train was powered by GOC WDP-3A#15517 + GOC WDP-3A#15504.
Location : Udupi, Konkan Railways.

Round trip to Karwar and back : Single line crossings and an overtake
Way back in September 2014, I did a round trip from Udupi to Karwar and back to kill boredom on a pleasant sunday...Always exciting to do a journey on KR in monsoon. Caught the 16523 Bengaluru city Karwar Express from Udupi to Karwar and returned in the evening by the same..The alco power for our train was ERS WDM-3A#16565R. Got some nice single line crossings through the day and a lone overtake of 11097 Pune Ernakulam Express at Karwar. Enjoy the actions...
