The Howrah Rajdhani is surprsingly led by a Kanpur WAP4 #22535 instead of its regular Gomoh WAP7/ Howrah WAP4.


The Sealdah Rajdhani crosses an inbound express to New Delhi. It was after a long time that I saw thsi Rajdhani with anything other than a WAP7.


A Tughlakabad WAG5 crosses the Yamuna with a load of BCNA wagons entrusted to it.


The Poorva Expess to Howrah has a Ghaziabad WAP5 at its helm nowadays.


The Jan Shatabdi to Dehradun has 14 coaches whoich come in all sorts of designs and liveries, never seen such a visually confusing rake !!


#16311 from Tughalakabad leads the Kalinga Utkal Express to Haridwar as a speedboat belonging to the Delhi Govt.'s irrigation department is on a routine inspection run. This train is the only one running north of Nizamuddin, which does not touch New Delhi


The #14719 halts at the Delhi Jn outer signal which is just outside the Salimgarh fort ramparts. This is also the spot where the road running under the tracks on the bridge leaves its sanctuary and veers away.


WDG3A #14719 from Abu Road hauls a long rake of BCNA wagons across the Yamuna


WAP4 #22288 brings in the Janta Express from Howrah, immideatly after the old Yamuna bridge, it will enter Salimgarh fort and then into Delhi Jn whilst passing by the historical Red Fort.


The Old Yamuna bridge connecting Delhi Jn to Ghaziabad is a road-cum-rail bridge with road on the lower level.


The shiny Delhi Metro rake crosses the Yamuna on what is the third rail bridge over the Yamuna. This one lies on the line which connects Shahdara to Rithala. A fourth bridge, also serving the Metro is coming up near IP Estate to serve the Dwarka line.
