Great Useful Useful
The NG tracks at GWL still exist. They are adjacent to PF 4, though no trains ply from there of course, now. The abandoned rakes were kept there. Do note the built year 1992. I wouldn't even call it a yard, since there are no facilities there, just a dumping ground now. An inside view of the NG train is also there. The tracks curved via Ghosipura inside Gwalior [at speeds of ~5 kph] before hitting the highway [towards Dholpur] [I spotted another NG station there, abandoned of course] and then turning course. The NG alignment then met the BG alignment near Banmore, I think [they came close, didn't xing over].

NG has been converted to BG via Birlanagar Jn, meaning Ghosipura station doesn't come under the diverted route now. It runs upto Sumaoli as of now. Two BG stations are quite close at Banmore, though I couldn't explore there.

Oh, and I saw couple of people going towards the actual yard at GWL [where BG trains are placed] who were actually hit by the police. I never had any intention of going towards there in the first place since train yards are always a tricky situation but this confirmed that GWL yard is best off limits.

    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...
