The Rare Scene to be seen anywhere in Indian Railways, BRC WAG5P Hauling A Rajdhani Look-a-like Train. Seen Here is 04422 Hazrat Nizamuddin - Bandra T. AC Suvidha Special Skipping Palghar Railway Station ,Lies in Virar - Dahanu Road Section Of Western Railways, in State Of Maharashtra.

Train Was Powered By BRC (Vadodara) WAG5P 23287. The Train Skipped Palghar in Modarate Speed, Since it was trailing 19012 Gujarat Express Which Departed Palghar, When This train was approaching The Outer signal.

Train consisted of All 2015 Made LHB Coaches with Zone Markings of "SCR" and Both EOG of "NER"

================================================

Ultimate Offlink WAP7 With Ahmedabad Shatabdi On Rampage at Umroli



12009 Mumbai Central Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express Skipping Umroli Railway Station with Offlink Ghaziabad WAP7 30221 at a Clear Maximum Permitted Speed of 130kmph...

Its very Bizarre to See 12009 Shatabdi with a WAP7, since it is regularly Hauled by Vadodara's WAP5. A 12 Wheeler Offlink On Place Of the Regular 8 Wheeler Loco.

Finally Captured this Train with a WAP7, 30221, Being my Most Favourite Loco.

==================================================

First Video Of WAP4 at 130 in WR..!! Mumbai - New Delhi Suvidha Express



22913 Mumbai Central - New Delhi Suvidha AC Express, Not Yet Permitted to Attain 130 Kmph On WR's Upgraded Stretch From Virar to Godhra, Took the Benifit of Zonal MPS and Skipped Palghar Railway Station at Clear 130Kmph

As Of Now(November 2015) Only 3 Trains, Viz., Mumbai Central - New Delhi Rajdhani Express, August Kranti Rajdhani Express, and Mumbai Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express Are Allowed to Gain 130Kmph Officially.

Since the Locomotive, Rake and Tracks are Fit for 130Kmph, This Train Gave A Surprising Blast of New MPS..!!

Rajdhani Defeated..!!! Express and Superfast Train Overtake August Kranti Rajdhani Express



19006 Okha/Veraval - Mumbai Central Saurashtra Mail, And 12956 Jaipur - Mumbai Central (Gangaur) Superfast Overtook August Kranti Rajdhani Express at Vangaon Railway Station

12954 August Kranti Rajdhani Express, Was Surprisingly Looped At Vangaon Railway Station. This Train was Running Late By 2Hrs 30 minutes, , And Many Other Mumbai Bound Trains were Also heavily Delayed Due to A Shunter Loco, which failed on UP mainline between Gholvad and Dahanu Road.

It was not Expected that, August Kranti Rajdhani Would have to face Siding Halt At Vangaon Railway Station. Initially, I Doubted that some Error in loco of Rajdhani would have landed the train in Loop Halt. But It wasn't any Loco fault.

Rajdhani Left Suddenly After these two Overtakes.
August Kranti Rajdhani Was Powered By GZB WAP7 30248 (Duronto Livery)
Saurashtra Mail Was Powered by BRC WAP5 30056
Gangaur Superfast Was powered By BRC WAP4E 22769

August Kranti Rajdhani Was Delayed by 2:30Hrs
Saurashtra Mail Was Delayed By 5:35Hrs
Gangaur Superfast was Delayed By 4:52Hrs

Majestic Crossing in The Thull Ghats..!! Howrah Mail Meets Kamakhya AC Express



12321 Howrah - Mumbai CST Mail (via Allahabad) Meets 12519/Mumbai LTT - Kamakhya AC Express in the Scenic Thull Ghats

I was on my way to New Jalpaiguri on-board 12519 Kamakhya AC Express Hauled By ET WAP4 22991 From LTT to Itarsi

Howrah Mumbai Mail was hauled by BRC WAP4 22210 and Supported by 3 KYN WAG5 Brakers. I was lucky enough to get this crossing on a majestic curve in open area, a slight change in meeting spot would have resulted the crossing inside a Tunnel

Regular Overtake at Unusual Spot..!! Mumbai Rajdhani Express Overtaking Garib Rath Express



12951 Mumbai Rajdhani Express Overtakes 12909 Bandra - . Nizamuddin Garib Rath Express at Vangaon Railway Station, which usually is a scene at Kelve Road Railway station.

Usually, 59037 Virar - Surat Shuttle is inside the loop of Vangaon Railway Station to get cvertaken by Rajdhani, but due to Delay of Surat Shuttle and a slight delay of Rajdhani Express, Garib Rath made it upto Vangaon Rather than Kelve Road.

It was a surprise for me to see Garib Rath inside the Loop of Vangaon (My home station though :P ) since had never seen Garib Rath except Kelve Road and Boisar Loop.
