Amritsar - Kochuveli Express lead by an old RATLAM WDM-3A

How long are these trains? It looks incredible.
@hvondelen This train has 19 coaches . Maximum number of coaches in passenger trains in Indian Railways is 24 .
@jmadhavadas Thanks. I think here in the Netherlands we rather have frequent trains instead of crazy long ones emojione
@hvondelen This train covers around 3600 Kms with same coach composition . Small trains doesn't work in IR as most trains are long distance ones . Small trains are there which are local passenger trains with maximum distance of 200 kms. Not beyond that emojione
@jmadhavadas In that case it makes more sense indeed. 3600 kms is an amazing distance. I think our longest intercity-ride covers 350kms.
@hvondelen IR's longest running train is Vivek Express covering a distance of 4273 kms in 5 days emojione
What train on left was with DD Eog...?
@dennis9811 That is TVC division's LHB rake for KCVL - MAQ Special
