Arrow DRIVOBLOG® | 40 Hours of Train-ing with some Real Flashbacks [MUM-CCU]

This describes my Train Journey from Mumbai to Kolkata, boarding at Kalyan Station and terminating at Howrah.

The special addition in this is the intro-flashback of my real past.

I think after this photolog, we will all go back to train travel - it has evoked the nostalgia in me at least!

It appears boring in the beginning, but Just one trip can get one addicted.

Wow man, you take time out and edit those numerous pics you take and fill it up with your humour, that`s a talent man. It is much more interesting to see such edited pictures than to read written matter. I loved every part of it . Thanks man.

BT. Excellent flashback. Innocence blended with intelligence! Must have consumed lot of your time to compile this.

BTW, what if this happens ('quoted below')!!

Same here.

Aah! What an identity miss, Sir. I always remember your ID from the Toyota Thread but could not recognize you as I had never see your photo. See I acknowledged after 2 long years. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/suvs-m...ml#post1719139 (Toyota Innova Variant and TCO Analysis Workshop 2008)

If HVK stops driving, the GPS Satellites will start falling off their orbit one by one as a symbolic suicide gesture.

This Thread took me 7 long Days. There was no way I could do it any shorter. Its like Movie-Making >> Script, Screenplay, Cinematography, Direction, Editing, Exhibition.

Great reading.

The photos do narrate a story. And bring in fresh perspectives.

Nice and interesting tag lines.

Good photolog TB, keep going.

BTW those sand blasters on the WAG-5A is new thing that I wasn't aware off. But aren't these 5000HP engines supposed to to be new generation. But they are in old bodies. Can any IRFCA member clarify please.
