It was great experience traveling in "Shakuntala NG pass"... The one and only private railway in India according to reports.
The train started empty from MZRN but passenger start coming from each station coming on route..
The train was having 4 coach...
sitting capacity 50+30+50+50 =180.
It was full pack after 2-3 stops.
The ticket was given to passengers in train only at each stations.
It was about 1 and half hour late than scheduled time at ELP. & It would be bcoz at every road crossing , the train stop one man goes and close the gate..
Train passes and he open the gate, and train again stop and he climbs in.
The Loco pilot also worked as TC as he came to check the ticket.
Was a all around a whole new experience.
Gauge Conversion has being sanctioned for this 76 km (MZR-ELP) route & 113km (MZR-YTL) route.

NG platform is on the left side if your train is heading towards NGP.
Just 1 platform with two small shelter with sitting arrangement.
The Loco Shed
,MZR is present just beside the NG track.
