Hey Neil, thanx for the info. But the Deccan Oddessey did have 2 runs; the 1st being politicians and bollywood and sporting fraternity greats, and the 2nd run had a few tourists. However, it still left a lot to be desired.

Vabby, in fact I counted the total no of passengers and it was a dissapointing 217. However, they were given a royal carpeted welcome supported by music and flowers. That was indeed a sight to watch !

Pal i bet it was running empty because on the official run they use the wdm-2a of the pow livery which has got a nice emblem on the front some thing like rane bakth or something..

Not Jhansi shed, but the loco belongs to TKD (Tughlakabad) shed of NR.
