RORO: Roll on-Roll off
The initiative taken by Konkan Railway wherein trucks or lorries are transported on modified flat-bed rakes. Ever wondered how it looks while the trucks are being loaded onto the wagons? Watch this...
About 58 trucks are carried at once on these flatbed rakes.

The new addition to Mumbai - The Bombardier rake. After nearly 2 years, the rake is introduced into passenger service. The rake did its first service as 11:32 Borivali SLOW from Churchgate and return.

The rake was very silent as compared to the Siemens ones. Its acceleration was pretty smooth. The seats were comfortable too.

130 Trail of Shatabdi : Western Railways!




DISCLAIMER : THE SPEED is calculated as 12.5 secs - 17 coaches - WAP 5. Speed comes 130 kmph. Today was a trail of the 130 kmph run. I know the MPS is 120.

So, today was the trail run of 12009 - BCT - ADI Shatabdi Express for the increased MPS of 130 kmph. The train would do the speed between VR and ST/BRC. The 130 MPS is likely to regular by June. 30058/BRC did the needful of 130.

The Diesel Engines currently operational on Indian Railways. Included all but two, the WDG4D and WDP1 since I couldn't get to capture a video of those locomotives. Only included Broad Gauge Diesel Locos.

The Diesels of IR!

RTM WDM 3A #18623 chugs away with Dehradun - Kochuveli Express!!

Its always that we railfans make a point to wave to crew, sometimes the crew returns the same by flashing the light, showing flag, etc. But when reverse happens, it awesome!!

PS - none of us knew who the guy was. we have seen most of them but not this guy.

Royapuram/RPM shed's WAP 7 #30342 honks and rocks away with 12907 Bandra T. - H. Nizamuddin Sampark Kranti Express!!!

The loco came with Swaraj a couple of weeks ago and then did a lot of duties in WR. Mainly with WR trains, went to NZM with Yuva Express and then returned back only to go back to Delhi. Now this loco is probably back to its home territory as ICMS showed it was allocated to GT Exp next day.

How about closing the doors? Why do they leave the doors open when the train is moving? It's scary!

most complicated bridge
on isolated terrains.Hope to see this project going to be finished ASAP.

Because its Mumbai or Indian Railways. Here closing door trains are still far. During peak hours its practically impossible to have closing door trains. If such thing happens then train won't move at all. And IR cannot afford to employ more people to just make the doors close. Btw in normal time, its fun to be at door.

In other trains around country people do sit at doors at 100 kmph.
