Good posts and video, Mangalore. Appreciate your coverage of freight, as well as the focus on railway operations in your local area. Mangalore Junction seems to be quite the hotspot for activity with many through trains. I'm an Alco fan, so more video of those will be well received

Since the lines around Mangalore are just undergoing electrification, there are a lot of ALCos around. The EMDs have made their mark but the ALCos still rule the roost.

The classic chugging of an Indian Train which is reminiscent of the bygone era. The EMDs and Electrics might have conquered a large portion of the railways but this still makes people feel nostalgic...

The only train that does 120KMPH in Konkan Railway for now!
The 12432 Trivandrum Rajdhani Express racing towards Mangalore after being held up for a crossing with the 12134 Mangalore Mumbai Superfast.
Location: Byndoor, Karnataka, India.

Monsoon in the Western Ghats, Konkan Railway!
The first video of the South-Western Monsoon making its presence felt in the Western Ghats on the day of arrival of the Monsoon on the Western Coast of India. I was onboard 16524 Karwar-mangalore-Yeshwanthpur Express.

The Fastest train in between Mumbai and Mangalore- 12133 Mumbai CST-Mangalore Junction Superfast Express skipping Sawantwadi Road station in Maharashtra at 110Kmph in Heavy Rains.
This video will give a rough idea of what the Monsoon means in this part of the world and how the railways just take it in their stride to keep the trains running day in day out, regardless of the weather...
PS: If anyone has problems with me keeping this thread alive by sharing a few videos from my channel, then they are free to start bashing just like they did last time.

The fames Sharavati River Bridges and Honnavar Tunnels on the Konkan Railway!

The most intense action while traveling in the Mangalore-Madgaon section... The famed Sharavati Triple Bridges and the Honnavar Tunnels.
P.S. Standing at the door of a moving train is RISKY and must not be practiced.

Konkan Railway: Two trains standing on one track and a third train crossing at high speed

This is something different from the regular railway videos. The DEMU train has been reversed onto a ballast unloading line and has been shut off. Another train has arrived on the same loop line and the mainline is cleared for another non-stop train to pass through.

This is the longest running Rajdhani Express train in India.
The costliest journey ticket in Indian Railways is for First AC in this train at a whopping 7690/-INR for a one way ticket.
