When track inspection vehicles become regular on a train track, something is seriously amiss!
My friend Ashish Paul captured this lovely captures.....up from a FOB at Sijua station on the DHN-CRP section.
It was with his permission that I am uploading these pictures on IRI!
Attached a youtube video link, it was taken by him too......He whatsapped them to me, as he knew that
I would be interested.
What is a bit surprising that those track INSP Cars came all the way from NR. I thought that being ER/ECR territory ER/ECR track INSP cars would be be visiting here!
The track vehicles stopped at the station for a minute or two, two LPs got down here. My friend wasn't able to take any pictures upclose as the RPF onboard raised objections. So he rushed up to the FOB, and hurriedly took these snaps......
Well about the DHN-KTH-CRP section I have already written about it's history here /blog/post/1587845
UPDATE 1:- My friend also managed to find about the track layout of the DHN-SGRL CIC section, from the SJA station-master.
DHN-SJA:- Double electrified BG with bi-directional signals, both the Up/Dwn lines are bidirectional.
KTH-SZE:- Single electrified BG
SZE-JNNA:- Double electrified BG
JNNA-CRP:- Single electrified BG
CRP-BRMO:- Double electrified BG
BRMO-BKRA:- Single electrified BG
BKRA-GHD:- Double electrified BG
GHD-SGRL:- Single diesel BG, under electrification.
Picture, Video and Information source:- My friend Ashish Paul!
UPDATE 2:- This incidently happened to be my 200th blog entry!

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...

So all of these features will be REMOVED. We'll have ONLY BLOGGING - quick upload of pics/videos/audio, etc. You may attach...
