Andheri bound locals of Harbour Line after Bandra take this iconic flyover. The Flyover starts just after Bandra and goes over the Up and down main lines and slow lines and lands on the other side before Khar.

This was the first time that I took a harbour line local. One can see Bandra Terminus as the train climbs up the flyover.. Soon the train crosses over the slow and fast lines and starts descending. The newest of Mumbai locals - Bombardier local can be seen rushing towards south. A bit older then it - Siemens local can be seen crossing it and coming parallel to us. As we slow down for halt, the oldest of all - retrofitted AC/DC local arrives simultaneously at Khar.

Here's how the train going over flyover looks from outside -

HOG technology now for Rajdhani Expresses too!

HOG is Head-On Generation. In this technique, the electricity that the loco takes from Over Head wires is supplied to coaches for their light and other working. This eliminates the use of EOGs and thus saves diesel.

Kalka - New Delhi Shatabdi is regularly hauled by another HOG equipped WAP 7 #30277. Chandigarh Shatabdi was also briefly hauled by 30365, the loco in video.



On the final day of 2015, a decorated GZB WAP 7 #30365 blasts Dahisar with 12952 New Delhi - Mumbai Central Rajdhani Express..

It was the first regular run of HOG equipped locomotive with any Rajdhani Express of India. Both EOGs are shut as one can hear in video.

RORO unloading.
Roll On Roll Off is an exclusive truck-ferrying service on the Konkan Railway from Surathkal near Mangalore to Kolad in Maharashtra. Trucks are loaded onto flat bed wagons from the loading terminal and are secured to the wagons with chains. The drivers of the trucks have to be present in their respective vehicles while in transit.

Those new coaches look hard to clean with so many edges and small surfaces. But nice if they manage to do so!

Indian Railways to manufacture locos that run on diesel, electricity

Quote:
In a first for Indian Railway, diesel locomotives will soon haul trains by drawing power through overhead wires on an electrified route, with the public transporter embarking upon manufacturing dual-mode engines.
In a first for Indian Railway, diesel locomotives will soon haul trains by drawing power through overhead wires on an electrified route, with the public transporter embarking upon manufacturing dual-mode engines.

“We will be manufacturing dual-mode locomotives to run trains on diesel and also by drawing power through overhead wire on electrified route,” said a senior Railway Ministry official involved in the project.

Railways will manufacture five dual-mode locomotives of 4500 horse power (HP) capacity each at Diesel Locomotive Works in Varanasi as a pilot project.

Though similar locomotives are operational in the US and South Africa, it will be a first in India, the official said.

Currently, 52 per cent of total trains are on diesel traction. Diesel locomotives are generally replaced by electric engines on electrified route causing delays.

“However, with the acquisition of dual-mode locos, there will be no need for changing the locomotive for electric traction as the same diesel engine will be utilised on electrified route,” he said.

A dual-mode locomotive is estimated to cost about Rs 18 crore, while a 4500 HP diesel locomotive costs about Rs 13 crore.

The proposal has been forwarded to the Research Design and Standard Design (RDSO), the research wing of Indian Railway, to finalise specifications.

“After the RDSO approval, DLW will be manufacturing five such locos on a pilot basis. The locos will be pressed into service on certain electrified routes on a trial basis,” said the official.

The dual-mode locomotive will be heavier than the diesel locomotive and is expected to run at a maximum speed of 135 km per hour.

A diesel locomotive is a type of railway locomotive in which the prime mover is a diesel engine, while in an electric locomotive, the engine moves on power drawn through a pantograph mounted on the roof of the train.

Pantograph is an apparatus mounted on the roof of an electric train, tram or electric bus to collect power through contact with an overhead wire.

The result of recent increment of maximum permissible speed from 120 kmph to 130 kmph.. Train getting nearly half an hour of clearance, two trains in loop at stations before and a pure 130 kmph storm..

As my Koyna Express went through some final turns of Bhor Ghat, I could see the loco of Udyan Express far on the other side of the mountain..

We suddenly were cruising at pace through S curves and I could now see the tail of Udyan Express, the train that had overtaken me at Khadki and had less number of stoppages than my train.

We had chased it and as we went crossed the last curve, we almost caught up with it. An exciting parallel action started and Udyan Express was besides us.. Coach by coach went behind until we had to slow down for a halt at Karjat, where the Udyan Express went ahead.

One can see some tourists in the last coach enjoying the views and the action.
P.S he waves at the end.
