Mumbai's AC local undergoing trials early morning !!



As I was waiting for my 09622 Bandra T. - Ajmer Special SF, this AC local was passed just before it.
Mumbai's Air Conditioned local is in Mumbai for more than a year now. It was allotted to Central Railway after Western Railways refused it. After allotment it was found that the height of the train was more and it won't be able to pass under the low height bridges. Thus, it was lying in shed for quite some time after which the trials finally began. It is still unclear where it would operate and when it would operate. A recent target is of September 2017 to operate the local, after which more would be arriving.

So blue little scaffolding thing that you are seeing to the right of this picture is a platform from which the rest of the viaduct and the bridge segments will be launched. And by the look of it it's already operating. So it's only three spans to go before the viaduct on the Resai side is complete!

Here's the google link for you to zoom in! https://www.google.co.in/maps/place/...759165!6m1!1e1

GE Transportation Rolls Out Indian Railways’ Freshly Painted Locomotive

ERIE, PA, August 3, 2017 -- GE Transportation rolled out Indian Railways’ first Evolution Series locomotive from the paint stall, revealing the railroad's new paint scheme. The ES43ACmi (Indian Railways’ class - WDG4G) locomotive, painted in a distinctive red and yellow pattern, is the first of 1,000 diesel freight locomotives that GE Transportation will deliver to Indian Railways as part of a $2.5 billion order. The bright colors hold special meaning in India with red representing energy and yellow representing freshness.

Game of Priority..!! Cute OHE Van overtakes Passenger filled Shuttle



Valsad Bound 59039 Virar - Valsad Shuttle was sidelined at Vangaon Railway Station, and for the unique and weird instance, an OHE Van, based at Valsad, overtook the Train.

And yes, there were no issues on the line, as many train had passed before the shuttle, and also, the shuttle left as soon as the OHE van crossed the next threshold signal.

The OHE van had went towards Palghar in the morning, and it return as this.

YOU ARE WRONG Technical Guruji..!! Solar Power Trains in India, DEMU System OBSCURED..!!! #Shame



This video is about so Called Technical Guruji, who thinks all he says is true, who thinks he is a "Sarvagyani" who knows everything in this world, is actually not. Obviously related to the misconception he is spreading about railways


His recently published video about Solar powered DEMU is a clean proof of his half knowledge that he spreads amongst the vast population that has subscribed his channel and believes his words, may those be correct or not.

One thing I forgot to Mention..
WHAT DID YOU EXPLAIN ABOUT "DEMU" RATHER THAN ITS ABBREVIATION?

This video I made so that those who view this video will know whats the truth about Solar DEMU as well Technical Guruji.

PARDON me for the Quality of video since I don't make such kind of Videos where I make myself feature in it and have to replace the Background thing and all. But I have had to make this video as the "Guruji" was increasing the existing Misconception about trains and Railways in India.

And yes, I could have edited it very well than this, but this video would have meant nothing if had been published late.

If this video Reaches upto him, or his followers, hope they may listen fully first and then give their comments of views regarding this.

Journey Mumbai to Goa onboard India's First TEJAS Express

PART 1



PART 2



Full journey compilation Inside Indian Railways' First Tejas Express, 22119 CSMT - Karmali Tejas Express.

The Video is shot on 9th of June, which means its the Last day schedule for Tejas Express to Run on Konkan railway before commencing the Monsoon Timetable from 10th June to 31st October.
The inaugural run of 22119 Tejas Express was on 24 May 2017 from Mumbai CST to Karmali, Goa.

The coaches are manufactured at the Rail Coach Factory, Kapurthala. 22119 Tejas Runs at Maximum Speed of 120Kmph in certain parts of Konkan Railways. Though the rake is made capable to run at 200kmph, no such Route or Locomotive is presently available in India to make the train run at that speed.

There are 12 non-executive chair cars and they can seat up to 72 passengers each (3+2) configuration. The coaches have energy-efficient LED lights and digital destination display boards. The new train has 1 executive chair car (in 2+2 configuration). The executive chair car has a seating capacity of 56 passengers and adjustable head-rests, arm support and leg support. Leg support is not available in non-executive chair cars.

The central table in the Tejas Express also has infotainment screens. Equipped with soap dispensers, touch-less water taps, odour-control systems and occupancy indicators, the toilets in Tejas Express have been designed with modern standards in mind. In line with Indian Railways vision to make tracks defecation free, Indian Railways has installed bio-vacuum toilets in Tejas Express. All doors are centrally controlled. Currently, the train runs three days a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, in Monsoon Timetable of Konkan Railways.

Hope you will love this Journey Travelogue.
