Hey - Appu. Keep sending such lovely pics. We are all enjoying it.

You seem to be covering all the ghat sections in the Mumbai / Pune Region. So, is the Thull Ghat next ??

The photo is shot an angle to the line rather than in parallel, plus the camera may as well be skew - that's the reason for this dramatic looking tilt.

wonderful shot, great observation, 9.4m difference is too much!

14 LHB coaches + 1 WDM3D is roughly 350m in length. If the gradient is 1:37 at Monkey Hill, then the SLR may be 9.4m above the loco!

What could be the difference between the Gradients at SLR & LOCO? An awesome photo!!!
