The point where the Konkan Railway line parts ways with the South Western Railway line outside Mangalore Junction.
02058 Ernakulam-Pune Non-Premium Xmas Special curves towards Mumbai on the Konkan Railway line while the line on the right goes to Bangalore. Mangalore Junction lies behind the camera in this picture.

And then comes the Rajdhani running almost at the top sectional speed of 120Kmph.
This was a steep and dangerous rock cutting which was eventually reduced to a more manageable one after excavation and netting work that was carried out over the past few years with a permanent speed restriction of 50 Kmph.
Gokarna, Uttar Kannada district, Karnataka.

Will be posting a few pictures clicked at this spot showing the line alignment and the terrain through which the line passes shortly.

Another video shot at Murudeshwar, another temple town like Gokarna.
Mangaluru Junction-Mumbai CST Superfast skipping the scenic Murudeshwar station at a high speed.

Traversing one of the steepest and the most dangerous ghat sections in India by rail.
Through the treacherous Shiradi Ghats!
Terrifying view from a rickety viaduct in the Shiribagilu-Yedakumari section.
