They are almost identical in specs, its only the gearing ratio which is different between the two WDP is for Passenger trains while WDG is for the goods train hence the change in gearing ratio to cater to different torque requirements.

Trains, my beloved mode of transport for many many years. They sure have some sort of a magnetic pull to them. Probably it is the amount of iron and steel used by the railways that generates it, or something else.

But that "something" is never discovered, yet experienced by all of us who come in the vicinity of these immense machines and their infrastructure.

Looking forward to more, and for what's done so far.

Btw, Like others, i am curious when are you going to post the next logical road transport mode--Busoblog?
I am amazed by your pre-emption.

Only if there was a Bus Link netween BBSR and Vizag, I would have done Trivandrum-Bangalore-Hyderabad-Vizag-BBSR-Kolkata by Volvos. Would have called for a "Volvo Photozubaani"

I must admit, everytime I hear something like that, I myself go back and review the entire thing and get lost in them.

In fact many times, I lose track of my earlier threads .

This delays my pending threads as a result.

yet again, mesmerised. Your photoblogs are a visual treat for us. None of the two are
identical in any aspect. The captions are also crisp and to the point.

The way you have mentioned the benefits of train travel is some thing we all know
but perhaps it is for the first time i have read in this style.

Railways are sure a boon for long distance comfortable and affordable travel, if only we can make them a little bit cleaner though.

Good work, once again and waiting for your next post.

In the meanwhile I am sifting through your another photoblog .

After his starvation treatment whole journey and showing me bananananananananas yesterday on NH47,
HVK truly blew me off my feet by giving a impressionable sensory experience:
  • Sights: of His House and the special private cottage he made me stay in
  • Sounds: of Garden and Local Ambiance and also Railway Locomotives
  • Smell: of Wonderful Food and Plants in the garden

Yet another excellent thread Basu.

Yes - don't know why, but there is a marked disparity between the Hyderabad Deccan (Nampally) station and the Secunderabad Station - The Secunderabad Station is very modern, has all facilities that you can think of and needless to say, it is strategically located opposite to the very famous Alfa cafe - I don't know if you had a go at it.

Nampally on the other hand looks outdated, filthy and tasteless when compared to the Secunderabad station - Same State, same city, similar travellers, different stations, different tales.

Cheers

Kacheguda Station is equally good enough especially after the renovation at most parts of the station. Wonder when Nampally gets that lift up.

Tirthankar, that raat gayi baat gayi pic is awesome.
