For the first time ever in my life, I travelled in a gauge other than Broad Gauge. My journey on the Kalka Shimla Railways is an unforgettable jewel for my eyes and my heart. This was even my first experience travelling in North India after I came into my senses. Occasionally, I'll be posting images of my journey in 52453 Kalka Shimla Express in this blog in the form of a thread (don't know for how many days will this thread continue :P). To begin with, I'm posting the train board of 52451/52452 Shivalik Deluxe Express in the next reply.
Obviously, loco pics won't be here as there's a glitch because of which loco pics can't be added through replies.
the whole route is an engineering marvel and one of the wonders of Railfan World. It was a bliss for me to enjoy the Shivalik Range with Indian Railways (KSR)

Last but not the least... TB of 52457/58 (04543/44 on TB)
Hence, I conclude this series of Kalka-Shimla Tour pics after nearly a month. Videos will surely be uploaded on my YouTube channel click here once posting old videos is completed. They'll be posted here separately. I'll be back with more RF pics and videos of my NDLS-AGC-MTJ visit.

    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...

You may add ANY PNR to your bookmarks through the "Add Bookmark" link in the...
