Unique Green WDM3A with Green Garib Rath Express departs Mangalore Junction.
This particular locomotive was released from the Diesel Locomotive Modernisation Works, Patiala with the GenSet powered WDM2G locomotives and thus sports this unique and one of a kind livery.

The fastest train on Indian Railways is the 12951/2 Mumbai Central-New Delhi 'Mumbai' Rajdhani Express.
Average speed: 86Kmph
Top speed: 130/140Kmph
The Bhopal-New Delhi Shatabdi runs at 150Kmph but still falls short with an average of 83Kmph.

Mumbai Rajdhani has 3 classes of accommodation with all-inclusive fares. Gets a WAP7 locomotive now. In the video, it is hauled by a WAP5 since the video was shot in 2013.

Definitely, one of the most popular trains on Indian Railways.

Here is a video of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. I can't believe how people literally cling for their lives from a fast moving train just to get to work!

Closed-door trials are presently going on for Mumbai's highly over-crowded suburban railway. Hopefully, we should see automatic closed-door rakes roll in the next few months.

reference

Everyone agrees this was long overdue as a massive safety issue, but the previous Governments followed populist measures of keeping the ticket prices stuck unbelievably low. So infrastructure took a deep dive.

Presently, state assembly elections are underway, and if the previous state Government is rooted out, almost certainly "anti-poor" things like investing in suburban railway infrastructure, slum rehabilitation etc will get a stimulus.

The only advantage is the running train gets less hot inside with door opening. I was amazed seeing that when I was taking a train in Mumbai. Some people can simply jump into the train from the open door while the train was still moving very fast!

15 October 2014!

KYN WCAM 2P 21867 charges with the 02409 Pune - Udhna Shatabdi Special!!
A train from Surat/ Baroda to Pune was a long pending demand of people. And now, finally a Shatabdi is being run between Surat and Pune.
Earlier WCAM 2P was regular link of Ahmedabad Shatabdi. Train was then with ICF coaches and now with LHB coaches with a WAP 5 link that came post ACfication of WR. It a nostalgic feeling to see WCAM 2P with ICF Shatabdi on WR once again..

Closed doors on Mumbai trains is faaaar from reality.. Train would never depart if automatic doors are implemented.. People would still try to get in while the door is closing.
Like Metro in city it would require a number of people to separate crowd from train and let door to close..

Yeah, till 2016 we wont see large scale implementation of the closed door system. Truly there should be a separate corporation for the local train services seperate from railways, in which both the state government should also have a major stake. This way, if tomorrow you want to build a new railway line if the state government has the cash and can raise funds, it can go ahead and build it. Especially for lines within states it should be possible.

24 October 2014!

KYN (Kalyan) WDM 3D #11398 (hauled inaugural run of LTT - Ajni Express) skips Umroli with 02695 Yesvantpur - Jaipur Premium Special!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



24 October 2014!

Mid lamp mounted WAP 4E #22293 speeds past Umroli with an over-packed 12934 Ahmedabad - Mumbai Central "Karnavati" Express!

The train was full packed due to Diwali. One can even see the luggage compartment of front EOG filled with people as a result of Diwali crowd. People in EOG of a train was never seen by me till date. Looks like IR has been forced to open luggage compartments of EOG for people like the old ICF SLRs.

Down Mandovi Express crosses Up Mandovi Express outside Karbude Tunnel!
Karbude Tunnel is the second longest tunnel in India and the longest on Konkan Railway!
Mandovi Express is known as the "Food King of Indian Railways" for its award winning pantry services. Pantry managed by Ahuja and Care caterers. Also the first train in India to have on board shopping facility run by AVA.

Fastest Diesel Action on WR : Pure Rampage by 12216 Garibrath!!!



LDH (Ludhiana) WDM 3A #18833 ex WDM 3C puts up a pure MPS show with 12216 Bandra T. - Delhi Sarai Rohilla Garibrath Express!!!

Watch till end where a WAG 7 nearly spoils the show!!

The train was doing a full MPS - 120 kmph speed (from calculations). Never I have seen the train doing full MPS. It was always 115 116 117 but not 120! Awesome show in the end!!
