"For this isn't just a train but a long cherished dream come true..."
The reaction of people seeing a train for the first time in their lives, the excitement of the little kids, entire villages showing up at train stations to welcome "their" train... Ah!
This is a brief documentation of the inaugural run of the Hassan Yeshwantpur Intercity Express train on the new Hassan Bangalore line on March 26th, 2017. The schedule is a bit too ambitious with an average of 64kmph on this line where the maximum speed for the time being is restricted to 80kmph.

Do not skip any part. Watch the full video since all unnecessary parts have been cut out.

The most awaited train for the people of this region. The controversial, hyped, elusive, whatever you name it, "Kudla Express". This becomes the fastest train between Mangalore and Bangalore, covering the distance in 9 hours.

from Rail Journal
Upgrade for Delhi-Chandigarh railway to 200km/h
Indian Railways has decided to upgrade the 245 kilometers long Delhi - Chandigarh line, in order to increase the maximum speed for passenger trains to 200km/h.

http://www.railjournal.com/index.php...ml?channel=540

So that's some great news! These are pretty fast trains for an upgraded line and amongst the fastest in India. The broad gauge and straight stretch for most of the line will make this likely pretty easy to achieve.

Journeys on IR : Winter evening ride in the Shatabdi Express!




BRC WAP 7 #30474 led Shatabdi Express arrives at Vadodara(BRC). The EOG was on even though the loco was HOG equipped. Later on however it seems that HOG was turned on as in a neutral zone the lights of the coach went off as in EMUs. The food this time in the train was pretty great and well improved from my past experiences. The route had some TSRs although there were MPS zones too. Pretty chill ride this time.

The 12685 Chennai Mangalore Superfast Express derailed this morning while being shunted to the yard at Mangalore Central. The EOG car climbed an embankment after crashing through the track-end buffers. Video shows the rerailing of the carriage that was carried out by tugging it onto the rails with the help of twin WDG4 locomotives.
