Loud honking Diesel trains at Pune's busiest Level crossing | Beautiful track sounds
A set of videos captured in the evening of January 2014 at the two busiest level crossing gates situated at Ghorpadi, Pune division. One LC is situated on the Pune Miraj line and the other is situated on the Pune Daund line (Just half a kilometer apart). Ghorpadi happens to be in the heart of the city which also is close to the Pune military region. Even if the gate remains closed for few minutes for trains to cross by, it leads to traffic jam and utter chaos. Trains in the video are :
1)

A case of the different class of Alco locomotives from Kalyan DLS working in Mu'd pair powering the bi-weekly superfast to Mumbai. The two videos were captured on two consecutive mondays in last month. The first week it was with orange WDG-3A "Shakthi" twins and the next week it was powered by orange + blue WDM-3D twins. Enjoy the chugging show put by the ALCO twins.
In the first case : WDG-3A#14982 + WDG-3A#13580

Unique single line crossing inside Tunnel :12051 Madgaon Jan Shatabdi Express!
Konkan Railway single line crossing at Ukshi Railway station with the ever aggressive Konkan Queen, Jan-Shatabdi Express rampaging past my stationary Kochuveli Porbandar Express. Our train was made to wait for nearly 20 minutes for this grand train, which gets high preference here on KR! Ukshi has to be one of those rare stations on KR where there is a tunnel in railway station limits itself...

Friday's BKN CBE AC Express came down with an off-link from NWR itself, EMD from BGKT Shed instead of the regular ABR WDM link. The spot (3 KMS outside Udupi station) from where i captured this is the regular spot where one gets to watch trains at 105-110 kmph! However, the train seemed to have cut down its speed to a mere 20-25 kmph speed! This strech has lot of curves and the trains come down at speed with very few honks! In the last 1 month, there has been 2 human deaths. So i presume, the train had slowed down to pass this stretch at a sedate speed.

Morning fog+MG semaphore+honking EMD : Hubli WDP-4 in long hood storms through!
During my last year visit to Gujarat in the Ahmedabad Mehsana diesel section, I caught lot of speeding Alcos and EMD's in action! Of all the EMD's i got to capture, the superstar of SWR, AEB fitted Hubli based WDP-4 gave me the best action amongst all captured action. The morning fog + MG semaphore + blasting EMD made for a solid early morning action. I had visited here when the Meter guage section was fairly active then. Sadly we would no more see any meter gauge in the ADI-MSH section anymore.

Train over the longest bridge of Konkan Railway at top speed : Hill-top view!
One of the fastest diesel hauled passenger trains on IR network, Mangalore Madgaon "superfast" passenger cruising over the three bridges over the Shravarthi river at MPS, powered by a WDG-3A from Ernakulam shed. This amazing engineering marvel consistinf of three bridges over the mighty Sharavathi river was completed way back in 1994. The Sharavati "B" bridge is the longest which is a whopping 2060m long. Along with this Sharavati "B"bridge, there are Sharavati "A" and "C" bridges respectively and totally, it takes three bridges and almost three kilometres to cross the mighty Sharavati River. Here, the late running train was doing close to 90 kmph which is
