Weekly Blog for the week to 29th September 2019 5th October 2019.
Only one day of RailFanning (1st October 2019) during this week due to other important engagements.
Pictures 1 to 5 :- A dream which got fulfilled surprisingly. As 13121/22 KOAA GCT via CPR was cancelled last week the rake of it was parked near my home. This was the first time a LHB Rake was spotted at Ballygunge siding (Bondel Gate). My section only witnesses EMUs and Freights but I was indeed lucky enough to see a LHB Rake
near my home.
After capturing the Shabd Bhedi RSA rake at BLN I headed towards Howrah to meet our PNR Monitor MRB who came to Kolkata by Azad Hind the same morning. Last year when he came to Kolkata I couldn't meet him as I was hospitalized due to Dengue. Exactly 1 year back (6th October 2018) I had high fever onboard Jnaneswari Express and was later admitted to Hospital. 😅
Bhavesh, MRB and me later had a visit to SRC Pooling Point and ELS.
Pictures 6 and 7 :- 12301 HWH Rajdhani with WAP 7 30552 as its link.
Picture 8 :- Large SB of Howrah.
Picture 9 :- HWH WAP 7 30689 going light towards Howrah.
Pictures 10 and 11 :- Poorva arriving Howrah with HWH WAP 7 30640.
Picture 12 :- 12246 YPR Duronto arriving Howrah.
Picture 13 :- 12129/30 Azad Hind small TB.
Picture 14 :- Large SB of Santragachi.
Picture 15 :- TATA WAP 7 37076 at SRC Pooling Point getting ready to duty.
