**Question of honor?**
Since after LHB fication the Livery is getting common in between Rajdhani and other trains, do you feel this is an injustice to Rajdhani?
I don't have any issue with the common livery12%11
Rajdhani should stick to the current livery. other trains should get a new theme (Please comment)40%36
I miss the older Red/Cream Raj Livery12%11
I propose another livery for Rajdhani (Please comment)34%31
Any other suggestion (Please comment)1%1

The livery of Rajdhani train being given to sub-standard Mail/Express train does not do justice to giving any livery to a train. If IR wants to abolish livery, then it should produce white coaches. But, since the L.H.B. Coaches come pre-painted in Red Colour, they feel to lazy to change the colour to some other colour. Very bad approach. Livery is what distinguishes different class of trains.

In fact, the present livery of Humsafar can be modified a bit and given to the superfast trains. They look better in blue colour. Red is only suitable for the King Rajdhani.

Agressive Swarna Jayanti Rajdhani Express at Full Speed
Swarna Jayanti Rajdhani (Train No. 12957/12958) is a Rajdhani Express train on the Indian Railways broad gauge track network, connecting Ahmedabad (code: ADI) and New Delhi (code: NDLS), a distance of approximately 940 km. The train was one of the last Rajdhani Express trains to be introduced in the 20th century,
making its inaugural run in 1997 after the estwhile metre gauge lines between Ahmedabad and Delhi through Gujarat, Rajasthan and Haryana were converted to broad gauge. Since it was introduced in the 50th year of India's independence, it was named 'Swarna Jayanti' (golden jubilee) Rajdhani Express.
The train was running 2 hrs late due to track maintenance near Gurgaon.
Pics are clicked at Mahesana Junction and train was arriving at PF 1 of Beautiful station.

I think TKD or VTA can easily provide an EMD to this train. Or BGKT can also provide like in Ashram SF.

Great compilation:
- First Rajdhani to get air brakes - 151/152 Bombay Rajdhani (note the 3-digit numbers then). In fact, it was the first IR train to get air brakes.
- First Rajdhani to have no commercial halts - 101/102 Howrah Rajdhani. 2nd Rajdhani with no commercial halts - Bombay Rajdhani. Later on, tech halts were converted to commercial.
First Rajdhani with longest non-stop run - August Kranti Rajdhani: Vadodara to Kota. 2nd Raj to join this list is Trivandrum Rajdhani.

Reminiscing a memorable part of a trip to explore the MG sections of 3 different places !!
We had one day to execute an unplanned trip to Mahesana to explore the MG line which has now been shut down for Gauge Conversion. As I sat down recollecting memories from this beautiful trip 2 years ago, got to put together this small trip to Mahesana, one way in the MG passenger and the return by an Intercity. The Taranga Hill section was unfortunately missed out due to health constraints,
and the rest of the MG network to Botad and Ranuj too due to time constraints.
With whatever little i could cover, have put together this compilation, hopefully you enjoy watching it just as much as I enjoyed compiling it!!!
