SRC WAP-4 #22349 trundles into NGP with the Mumbai Mail. Only some SRC locos have this livery. Check out the porters readying to climb onboard the running train after doing a nice little 5 metre run up. Very risky stuff. Also note the Accident Medical Re


The triple-headed iron ore freight train is ready to start. The Starter is amber and Home is green. Location: Araku on the KK Line. Photo by Naveen S Jain, Dec 2002.


KR's RO-RO rake waits on the main line, so the Trivandrum Rajdhani takes the platform line at Khed station. Note the livery matched train - the loco and the power car too! Photo by John Mani, 2003.

A view from Mysore Station passenger footbridge. You can just spot a coal-fired MG steam crane. Also visible is the combined MG-BG track on which the GOC and KJM WDM-2 locos are resting. Photo by Naveen Jain, 21 Sep. 2003.


A view of the turntable at Vasco. This is a BG turntable and was installed after the gauge conversion to BG. Photo by Naveen Jain, Sep. 2003.


Zankvav station (narrow gauge - WR). This is an old pointsman's platform. The loop line has been long disconnected. The line was out of use then, hence the overgrowth. Photo by R. R. Bhagwat. Camera: Canon EOS88. December 2002.
