TALGO RAKE : First MUMBAI - DELHI TRAIL!



And finally!! Talgo Coaches visited Mumbai today. Rain pretty much played spoilsport in the Delhi - Mumbai Run. Mumbai - Delhi run was slated to be started at 3:00 am on 3rd August but lord knows how it started way too early.. Probably rain scare.. :P
-----
Over last few months many trials were conducted by railways using these coaches. Now the trails are being conducted on New Delhi - Mumbai route with an aim to cut travel time to under 15 hours.

That means average speed of TALGO is 107.7 km/h . Don't you think it should be more ?

It was 130 kmph trials. 140 and 150 are next. The overall set objective is of 125 avg. Lets see if they reach there. Rains are playing spoilsport at the moment.

Ride through the heavenly Bhor Ghat!



Monsoon Special, Super Green Bhor Ghat!
Bhor Ghat lies on the Mumbai - Pune Mainline of Central Railways. The Ghat starts from Karjat and ends at Lonavala. For the trains going towards Lonavala, bankers are provided at the rear to help the train ascend the ghat easily. While in reverse, only freight trains get brakers. The ghat turns super green in monsoon and is a treat to eyes. The valley and clouds complement the greenery, thus have turned it into a well known tourist spot.

INDIA: South Central Railway’s 123 km broad-gauge line between Nandyal and Yerraguntla in Andhra Pradesh has opened for revenue operation, following a formal inauguration by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on August 23.

The first train was ‘flagged off’ by video link from the Railway Institute in Vijayawada during a ceremony attended by the state’s Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and the Union Minister for Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu.
