Crossing an MG EMU from the Grant Trunk Highway, at Meenambakkam in Chennai. I have fond memories of this place. This one time, I was startled to find a small snake, slithering through the grass on this stretch. Speeding trains disturb the peace in the lives of these mystic creatures.

The Nellai Express to Tirunelveli accelerates out of Tambaram station and crosses a Chengalpattu-Tambaram MG EMU. With BG in full "steam" now, the MG lines would soon be uprooted to make this stretch a multi-line BG corridor. The BG EMU service now extends all the way to Kanchipuram.

The layout to the south of Chennai Egmore was a mecca for MG trains in the late 1990s. A north-bound MG EMU to Chennai Beach crosses a south-bound Tambaram local. An unnamed MG train is being shunted in the far right line, to the washing pits. The most preferred door is the one up-front, right next to the motorman :)

This is realization of another common railfan fantasy - two trains in the same direction, running on adjacent lines! The Nellai Express to Tirunelveli overtakes a Tambaram EMU on the adjacent line. Bad light mars further observation, but you can make out pantographs on adjacent coaches of the EMU. As my luck would have it, I managed to click the "Ladies" section of the coach!
