A small,unexpected and unplanned railfanning session along Mysore Road on an overcast afternoon. I deboared at Mysore Road metro station and took a cab. As I was going towards Kengeri, I heard a long EMD honk. This was before Jnanabharati halt where the Bengaluru-Mysuru railway line runs close to Mysore Road . It was UBL WDP4 200XX. It stormed past with the Mysuru bound Shatabdi Express with roaring EOGs. Unfortunately,I couldnt capture it.
Now after finishing my work, I heard a long honk and chugging of alco. I was quite far from the track. It was a calm place. Hence, the chugging was resounding. The Jaipur bound 12975 Mysuru-Jaipur Superfast Express rushed towards Bengaluru with its customary link alco twins. Watch
the intense action in the video. Apologies for shaky video. To subscribe-click here
While returning back to Mysore Road Station, I captured the SBC-MYS line to the best possible from an auto.

    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.
