MAS to HWH by Coromandel Exp. - Part 4 (Jan 2000) : This video covers the final leg of my journey from Bhubaneswar to Howrah, with Kazipet WDM2C doing the honors all the way. At Bhubaneswar, I went up to the loco and requested for a footplate. To my pleasant surprise, I was allowed in for a short loco ride till Cuttack. And so, I was able to savor the section till Cuttack from a Baldie cab. This included two single-line crossings (one being the Tapaswini Exp.) and the two bridges over the Kuakhai and Kathajodi rivers. Other highlights of the journey are as follows:
- Crossing Purshottam Exp. before Barang
Halt at Cuttack
- Crossing the Mahanadi river
- Skipping Bhadrakh
- Crossing the Dhauli and Falaknuma Expresses in quick succession
- Halt at Balasore
- Race with a freight train just before Kharagpur
- Overtaking the East Coast Exp. at Kharagpur
- Crossing the Howrah-LTT Exp. just outside Kharagpur
- Crossing the WAP4-hauled Gitanjali Exp. (meeting of two SER legends)
- Meeting the Shantiniketan Exp. just before Howrah
- Entering Howrah
