Double decker is already running on HOG. MYS Shatabdi will get HOG very soon after MYS-SBC FEDL inaugration. IMO 12213's and 12028's EOGs will be modified for HOG. 22691/2's link depends on NR. NR keeps sending different locos everyday.
Now that I got an SLB in a LHB coach near the loco, I couldnt resist from recording track sounds. Also, P7 can be heard honking. Audio description: Clip1:Departure horn. Clip2:Brakes are slammed due to ACP. Clip3:P7... more...

Once again I chanced upon travelling in an LHB sleeper coach. Train is none other than 12292 MAS-YPR Weekly SF. It was hauled by my white stallion 30354. The crew was from SBC divn. Also, SBC divn. has removed the new style of 3D stenciling of zone markings on the coach. The 3D "SW" marks were converted to usual "SWR" markings in blue colour. The train had an EOG from NR. It was shunted by a WAG9 which had no shed or number markings on the side of its body. Pic description: Pics... more...

After travelling in 12291 on Friday Nov 3 , I would recommend to travel on this train . It might be a weekly train less known compared to 12658 Chennai Mail , but one can't under estimate 12291 . Due to certain operational reasons it departs late from YPR most of the times. But it's still better than 12658 on Friday if it's rescheduled. And SWR does give 12291 a good priority.
