The rarely documented Mangalore-Subrahmanya Road Section.

The Mangalore-Subrahmanya Road section of South Western Railway is one of the rarely documented railway lines in India.
This was initially a Meter Gauge line which was recently converted to the Indian Standard Broad Gauge. Here are a few videos which were shot from on-board the Mangalore-Subrahmanya Road-Mangalore Passenger.

Maiden departure of Karnavati Express in LHB Avatar!!



24 September 2014!!

BRC WAP 5 30063 departs with 12933 Mumbai Central - Ahmadabad Karnavati Express!! The train had a delayed departure as people weren't able to get into coaches due to new position of coaches. People were struggling to get into general coaches and hence the departure was delayed.
The rake since a year and half or so had arrived in the zone. But due to some reasons it was not put straight into service. It ran as Vadodara- Rajkot Special last summer then going to NR and running as an ICE. Then it came back to WR and ran as Jodhpur Special for a brief period this summer.

Probably the most intense experience on Indian Railways. No exaggeration considering the high-speed crosswinds on the bridges followed by the extreme turbulence with popping ears while entering the tunnels.

There was a freight train derailment on the Konkan Railway and that caused a traffic pile-up for a few days. Happens once in a while not only in India but everywhere else in the world as well. And the trains were somehow kept running.
