RailFans don't miss their train. Why? Because they go to the station HOURS before the actual departure of their Train - to watch OTHER trains depart. - Prince Maan

Nothing better than waking up early for a RF session in the breezy winter weather of Bengaluru. As the clock lazily tries to move forward thanks to the chilly morning, there was an unusual hush at BYPL as the morning arrivals/departures sneaked in and out of the famous curve and the morning walkers and joggers began their routine.
1. 16231 MV-MYS with ED twins in lead punished for early entry into BYPL(whopping 30 mins early) waits patiently in loop to let 12691 pass through.
2. 12691 MAS-SSPN with ED WAP4 skips BYPL overtaking 16231 at
3. Unusually on time running Hampi (16591) with WDG4 slowly picked up speed after exiting CSDR triangle.
4. The Superfast that isn’t one, 12785 KCG-SBC enters SBC territory with just 9 mins delay unusual as per its standards. It was with KJM WDM 3A twins.
5. On a day belonging to twins and triplets, TN-MYS 16235 was also at MPS led by ED twins.
6. MAS-SSPN after loco change and rake reversal at SBC takes the same route again to enter CSDR triangle and join the YNK-HUP-DMM line.
7. Unusually less crowded HWH-YPR as like all his mates ripped at MPS with LGD P4.
8. TB of RF paradise- BYPL
9. The famous BYPL curve.
10. Late running SBC Shatabdi had waited patiently at BNCE for HWH-YPR to cross but crossed BYPL at MPS- was with the 25xxx series P4 belonging to Erode Electric Loco Shed.
11. As Shatabdi left, entered Island led by Royapuram WAP4 and it was an MPS skip again.
12. Fast passenger and most preferred train to TPTY from SBC/MYS was with BZA WAG7 and unusually was not looped for Island overtake. FC coach was not present and an extra SL coach was attached.
13. Enough said with twins and now, it was the turn of triplets to burn the tracks as SBC-ERS ICE slowed down to move over to the HSRA line at PSR of 20kph.
14. Last action of the morning at least before calling it a day – Lalbagh with 30389 from RPM shed. The loco was returning to MAS after hauling 12657 the same morning.
