Took us about 15 minutes to overtake him.
Good thing is that you were able to overtake. Thankfully there is no central verge.

No clue about what is inside. Classified!

I think this is the one you are refering about. Yes, its at a resort in Khopoli, saw it during one of my bike trips on the NH$ (old mumbai-pune highway). forgive me for the poor quality pics

These are used MG engines that were used in India. They are being refurbished at Ponmalai Railway Works at Trichy and sent as gift or sold to African countries who still use British Era MG tracks. They are sent from Chennai Harbor Port to these countries.

Not sure whether this qualifies to be on the strange sightings thread.

LOL are you serious? YDM-4 was written just above the cow catcher, like all other locos.

Spot on Archish, the loco was exported to Mozambique on Feb 23, 2010, so it became an NRI...

Witnessed by a friend in Pune. A M800 being foot towed by a Ki-Ho.

This has nothing to do with India. The person who has uploaded this video has a bad taste and why the hell is he making the whole country look like goons just because of one moron.

Look at the comments where people are making fun of India because of this video. Shame on the uploader.

Very true Ranjan, but I think it deserved a place here. Truly a "Strange sighting on the road".

This is on the Delhi Gurgaon Expressway. i.e. NH-8. Even I have seen this guy once almost an year back and was scared s**t about him. Also took a picture on my cellphone though lost it along with the phone.

Default Tractor driver wearing a helmet

A few days back we found a tractor driver wearing a helmet near the Bangalore Airport. The driver was just an ordinary tractor driver, who probably found this as the easiest way to transport his helmet.Interestingly that area is notorious for two wheelers riding without helmets and police turning a blind eye.
