It was a different trainspotting day for me today . In this train a trainspotting freind of mine was travelling a round trip from Mumbai to Kochuveli and back to Mumbai. Total of 3,658 kms of journey in 3 days. GOOTY shed locos are rarely spotted in my place. So I went to station before the terminating station, shot the train and then went to meet my freind at the terminating station. He returned in same train after 2 and half hours of turn around time hauled by the same loco. It was a different experience for me

09-09-2009, the first time I trekked the Braganza Ghats from Castle Rock to Dudhsagar. Walking through tracks filled with tunnels and tracks tucked deep inside the mountains. And praying that I should not encounter a train inside the tunnel as they come with turbo charger or dynamic brake ON which dissipates lots of heat and a screaming sound. Luckly no trains came when I was inside the tunnels. And also didn't encounter any wild animals till this day in Dudhsagar. One side of this mountains is a tiger reserve sanctuary. But I love to visit these mountains again and again .

@Maersk.146 In this case, it is passing in 80 kmph as a speed restriction set due to track maintainance . Usually they maintain the max permissible speed if passing through the mainline

Flag exchange is an interesting aspect to watch in Indian Railways especially when the train is not stopping but skipping the station. The loco pilot and assistant loco pilot both will wave the green flag as the station master and pointsman will acknowledge the flag exchange with their green flags standing on both side of the passing train. They will also watch the bogies of the coaches for hot axle and any other problem in the passing train and also the intact of formation. In the last coach, the gaurd will acknowledge with his green flag to the station master which ends the flag exchange process of the train. At night, it is green light
