Fine collection, but I don't like light blue. I liked dark blue. See Raj TB, fading and dull..... But see VSKP TB, has a shine and brightness to it.
MYS division keeps changing background - Siddhaganga is different from their Pass, where they gave Red-Yellow background /blog/post/2326278.

This Aqua blue will fade away very soon :(.
SWR should stick to dark blue BG with White text or Yellow BG with Black text.

Nice observations bro!
SR's legend meets SWR's legend! A regular affair if not at KPD, somewhere near KPD. As my Chennai bound Lalbagh pulls onto PF.No.2, Bangalore bound Brindavan makes its way onto PF.No.1 at KPD. Brindavan still retains the same popularity and status among Chennai-Bangalore travellers as it did 50 years back albeit SR stripped it of its CC and PC.
Pic 1: Crowd waiting at KPD for Brindavan.
Pic 2&3: WAP7 bringing in Brindavan.
4: Side view of 30349.
Pic 5to7: 2S coaches.
Pic 8: TB.

I had taken the DD from SBC to MAS yesterday(09/07/2017). RPM's white stallion 30350 was the link for our train. Both the EOGs were HOG capable.We had a good run till KPD. But due to rain we arrived at AJJ delayed by more than half an hour. The delay was covered thanks to the huge amount of slack. Arrived MAS delayed by 15 minutes. Here are a few pics which I captured at SBC before departure. Hope you like them.
-------------------------------------------------- ------------
Pic 1: Mysore bound Malgudi Express(RSA with Kaveri Express).
Pic 2: DD #TB.
Pic 3&4: EOG and TB.
Pic 5: HOG cables on the EOG.
Pic 6: Another TB pic.
Pic 7: P7 getting coupled with the rake.
Pic 8: Side view of P7.
Pic 9&10: Front view of P7.
Pic 11: KSR Bangalore #SB.
Pic 12 to 17: Brindavan led by 30366 entering SBC.
Pic 18 to 22: 30389 moving light towards SBC ETS. Initially 30389 was waiting in the yard between PF.No.4 and 5 next to the rake of SBC KCVL Exp on PF.No.5. After 30350 was coupled to DD, 30389 reversed and had a small parallel action with 12639 and moved through PF.No.7 warning trespassers with mad twin tone honking.
Pic 23: Royapuram brothers.
Pic 24: Brindavan coming to a stop.
Pic 25 to 28: Brindavan that is to return as 12640 gearing up for the journey led by 30419.
-------------------------------------------------- -----------

Presenting highlights from a trip on the Chennai Shirdi Superfast Express from Chennai to Krishnarajapuram. It is the only train to cover the 345km distance between Chennai and Krishnarajapuram, with diesel locos though the section is completely electrified. This train covers the 345 km between Chennai and Krishnarajapuram in 5 hours and 18mins, at an average speed of 65 kmph. Led by WDM3A twins from Tondiarpet, enjoy the Shirdi express'
amazing run as it moves through Northern Tamil Nadu, touches a bit of Andhra Pradesh and finally ventures into Karnataka. Notable crossings include the Intercity barrage from Tirupati, Bangalore& Coimbatore, followed by the West coast express, Yeshvantpur Hatia Superfast, Sanghamitra Express& Seshadri Express. As we near Bangalore, the Double Decker and Brindavan Expresses cross us.

Now this train is entering its last days with Diesel Traction. It is sad for some railfans. Now it got AJJ WAP1 between MAS and GTL(or DMM) yesterday.

Is this e loco link permanent between MAS and DMM? Or will be switched to GOC/ED/KJM WDP4D end to end since there was a WDM3A loco failing?
