(HD) A sequel!! A furious Humsafar chases a thundering Shatabdi!! 2 Premium trains at their very best!!
click here
Video No.- 1505
Last week, I and my fellow railfan Biswajit went to HB Chord (ER) to spot the HUMSAFAR. That day, we spotted the 20070 SGUJ WDP- 4 hauled HUMSAFAR chasing the 20063 SGUJ WDP- 4 hauled SHATABDI. And this week, I and my

fellow railfan Sourav went to SER to spot the HUMSAFAR, and luckily got a sequel!!
Powered by 22365 SRC WAP- 4, the 12277 Howrah (HWH)- Puri (PURI) SHATABDI Express speeds through the reversible line of Ghoraghata station at fantastic speed. And within minutes, the late running 12504 Kamakhya (KYQ)- Bangalore Cantt. (BNC) HUMSAFAR Weekly Express thunders away, trying its best to make up some lost time. Luckily after running behind freight locomotives for a few times, this time it got the privilege of being hauled by 22864 SRC WAP- 4.
12504 is the second HUMSAFAR Express to hit the tracks. The train follows the Kamakhya- (Via Goalpara Town)- New Bongaigaon- (Via New CoochBehar)- New Jalpaiguri- Kishanganj- Malda Town- Rampurhat- Howrah- Kharagpur- Bhadrakh- Cuttack- Bhubaneshwar- Khurdah Road- Brahmapur- Vizianagaram- Vishakapatnam- Vijayawada- Perumbur- Katpadi- Bangalore Cantt. route.
The SHATABDI follows the Howrah- Kharagpur- Balasore- Cuttack- Bhubaneshwar- Khurdah Road- Puri route

(HD) WDP-4 chases WDP-4 within minutes! Humsafar & Shatabdi Express at their brilliant best thunders away!!
.
Watch out for the two furious actions of WDP- 4 back to back within a few minutes on a completely electrified section. And an icing on the cake was that both the EMDs sported the original cabs (Instead of the ugly Piggies), one in LHF and the other in SHF.

20063 SGUJ WDP- 4 comes thundering through the reversible track with the late running 12042 New Jalpaiguri (NJP)- Howrah (HWH) SHATABDI Express.
A few minutes later, 20070 SGUJ WDP- 4 comes racing with the new kind in town, the 12504 Kamakhya (KYQ)- Bangalore Cantt. (BNC) HUMSAFAR Weekly Express. This was the first run of this train with the modified new rake (Belonging to NFR). It was running with a sub-par NR rake on the earlier runs.

Thanks a lot. I hate comparing or calculating speed. But it seemed that the Shatabdi was over 125 km/hr. And the Humsafar was at around 105 km/hr.

It pains to see diesel guzzling smoke spewing monsters running on electrified route.
Locos should be changed to electric as soon as diesel territory ends. Not sure about this particular train's route dynamics though.

Re# 2122540-5            Tags   Past Edits
The train uses diesel under wires from Rampurhat to Howrah. But it is not possible to do a loco change at Rampurhat for such short halt (5 mins). So the trains will get diesel untill electrification goes all the way till Malda Town.

(HD) Brand New HOG WAP-7i undergoing Trials!! Railways' smart way of locomotive testing!!
Video link:
Most of the Electric Locomotive sheds are now homing the State of the Art HOG Equipped WAP- 7 locomotives to enable their LHB trains to run without EOG powers. Being cleared for 130 km/hr, and having a high horse power allows to Locomotives to be the first choice to haul the Rajdhanis, Shatabdis and Durontos. But having the highest failure record among all Locomotives currently running in Indian Railways' network, the Locomotives are subjected to make

numerous trials with the Passenger trains and low profile short distance Express trains. Once the Locomotives clear the trials, then they are allowed to haul the higher profile trains.

video covers the grand arrival and departure of Inaugural Special 02504 Kamakhya (KYQ)- Bangalore Cantt. (BNC) Weekly HUMSAFAR Express. The train arrives at Howrah behind beautifully garlanded 40189 SGUJ WDP- 4D. And departs behind 22376 SRC WAP- 4. Poor platform allotment at Howrah station forced a couple of coaches to be outside the platform premises. The interiors, which are also covered in the video, was a big letdown. Others than curtains, Side Lower charging point, and a LED Display, everything was same as that of a normal LHB AC 3 Tier coach.

Mighty WAP- 4 was first manufactured by keeping in mind that the Locomotive can easily haul 24 coaches trains with ease, and also run upto 140 km/hr. The first WAP- 4 Locomotive 22061 "ASHOK" was manufactured in a trial basis. As it proved successful, WAP- 4 were produced in a large number, numbering from 22201 to 22399, and then 22500 to 22999. But as WAP- 5 Locomotive failed in the Ghat section with 24 coaches, and WAP- 7 proving too unreliable, the production of WAP- 4 Locomotive continued even further, with the new road number 25000 onwards. Finally the WAP- 4 production stopped with road number 25051.
Powered by 22999 VSKP WAP- 4, the 18646 Hyderabad Deccan Nampally (HYB)- Howrah (HWH) EAST COAST Express races past Sankrail station through the down main line at good speed.
Powered by 25000 VSKP WAP- 4, the 12073 Howrah (HWH)- Bhubaneshwar (BBS) JAN SHATABDI Express races past Sankrail through the up main line.
Sankrail is situated on SER's Howrah- Kharagpur stretch.
East Coast Express runs along the East Coast of India between Vijayawada and Howrah and hence the name. Earlier days originating station of this train used to be from Guntur where it was hauled by Steam Engine. The train follows the Howrah- Kharagpur- Bhubaneshwar- Khurdah Road- Vishakapatnam- Vijayawada- Kazipet- Secunderabad- Hyderabad route.
The JAN SHATABDI follows the Howrah- Santragachi- Kharagpur- Balasore- Cuttack- Bhubaneswar route.
