I have seen some old photographs (20 years back ) of selected Tokyo
lines
with OHE
Milan also seems to have its red line relying on OHE

In San Francisco the subway runs under Market St and Twin Peaks (a
hill).
Each of the various lines branch off, and eventually comes up above
ground.
For example, the K Ingleside runs as subway for about 8km, then comes up
and runs as a surface tram for about 20km.
So the "trams" and the "metro" are one and the same.
All the equipment is OHE.

For some export order ? Or is it just a one-off prototype ?
In any case, it should be remembered that the use of a
single-cabbed hood design under IR conditions is a
compromise on visibility anyway.

Dear Shakoor,
If you have official standing with AAR (which your E-mail address
seems to indicate?), you should be able to make a direct approach to
Railway
Board in Delhi for a copy of the Bridge Code; there is (or was ) a
Standing
Technical Committee (founded in the 1920s) and their reports might also
be
of interest.
The Kitab Mahal in Delhi (and other places) used to sell such
manuals, and it might be worth your while to enquire of them. (They're
the
Indian Government book store).
I presume you are located in the USA: enquiry of the Indian
Embassy
or Consular Office in your city may also yield results. They used to
maintain a small technical unit at the Indian High Comission in London,
and
they wre often helpful. There may be someone similar in USA.
I hope all that helps!
Season's greetings
Ken Walker

Subject: Sound files of locos

Date: 23 Dec 1998 07:09:20 -0500


Gang !

I was just thinking that there is no site on the entire web which offers
loco sounds
in MP 3 format, or is there ? I do not know much about MP3 but what I
have understood
is that a 5 minute sequence in stereo would be around one Mb or so.
Hence I go with a
portable tape recorder and take a footplate ride on the WDM 2 to
Kolhapur and edit the
sections of the prime mover sounds, dynamic brakes, horns, driver's talk
(assistant
spot the signal and shout - "Salpa home 'right' ", driver responds
"right", driver -
"Salpa road 1" - asst - "Road 1, sir".) and then wav to MP3 it and
upload it. How
feasible is this ? What should be the target MP 3 file size and that
should result
from how large a WAV file and how large a sound sequence. The more
experienced gang
please advise.

Apurva

Where did this 'right' term come from ? If there is a common slang on
the entire IR,
this is it. It signifies understood, correct and generally affirmative.
I think it is
a corruption of 'right away' or some term like that which the Britishers
use.

Subject: Re: Sound files of locos

Apurva,

I believe the term "right" here means "correct"or "okay". So the
conversation is:

Asstt: "Salpa home 'right' (i.e. okay)"
Driver: "Right" (okay).

Hi Apurva, I've been toying with MP3 for a little while. A 5 minute mp3
sequence should take about 3 - 4 Mb of space, and the wav file would
take about 35 - 40. I think recording sounds from a footplate trip for
us folk would be fantastic! I'd set the computer alarm to wake me up to
the sound of a wdm2's horns every morning :-)
If you can somehow get the sounds into wav, I can send you some fairly
easy to use software to convert it to MP3, and then you would be able to
put it on a website for us to download. Just one thing to be mindful of
-- the conversion process can take a while (about 30 minutes on a good
pentium) for 5 minutes of audio... and pentiums are advised for people
listening to sounds in MP3 as well.
Regards
Vivek.

Here is a possible itinerary:

1. Dep. New Delhi on Jan.1(Friday) by Chandigarh Shatabdi Exp. at 7.30
am -
arr. Chandigarh 10.40 am.

2. Finish Kulu/Manali (or Shimla if you wish to travel by train)

3. Dep. Chandigarh on Jan. 3(Sunday) by Chandigarh Shatabdi at 12.20 pm
-
arr. New Delhi 3.30 pm.

4. Dep. New Delhi on Jan. 3 by Karnataka Exp. at 9.15 pm - arr.
Bangalore
2.00 pm on Jan. 5(Tuesday)
OR
Dep. Nizamuddin on Jan. 4(Monday) by Rajdhani Exp. at 8.50 pm - arr.
Bangalore 6.55 am on Jan. 6(Wednesday)

(if you want to travel by the Rajdhani, you now have an extra day to
spend
at Chandigarh/Delhi. Note that the Chandigarh Shatabdi is a daily train
and
the Bangalore Rajdhani is a biweekly train)

5. Dep. Bangalore on Jan. 7(Thursday) at 9.00 pm by Bangalore-Trivandrum
Exp.(daily train) - arr. Ernakulam Town at 9.55 am on Jan. 8(Friday).
Take
the bus(?) to Cochin.

OR

Dep. Bangalore on Jan. 6(Wednesday) at 3.45 pm by Bangalore-Quilon
Exp.
(weekly train) - arr. Cochin at 5.55 am on Jan. 7(Thursday).

6. Dep. Ernakulam on Jan. 8(Friday) at 4.20 pm by Alleppey-Chennai
Exp.(daily) - arr. Chennai at 6.30 am on Jan. 9(Saturday).

7. Dep. Chennai Egmore on Jan. 9 at 10.00 pm by Rockfort Exp.(daily) -
arr.
Villupuram at 1.10 am on Jan. 10(Sunday). Then catch the morning
passenger
(departs around 5.00 am) to reach Pondicherry around 6.00 am. [Need to
confirm this from SR TT]. However, you would have to spend 4 hrs. at
Villupuram in the middle of the night. There should be plenty of buses
from Villupuram to Pondicherry although I am not sure about the hours of
operation.

OR

Dep. Chennai on Jan 10(Sunday) at 8.00 am by Cholan Exp.(daily) -
arr.
Villupuram at 12.10 pm. Then take a bus to Pondicherry.

8. Return to Villupuram by bus/train on Jan. 10. Villupuram to
Bangalore is
the tricky part. The shortest route is via Vellore-Katpadi but there
doesn't seem to be any convenient connection at Katpadi for Bangalore.
Probably the best thing is to spend a couple of hours at Villupuram,
then
catch the Nagore-Chennai Exp. (daily) at 1.45 am to reach Chennai at
5.35 am
on Jan. 11(Monday). You would not have time to catch the Shatabdi Exp.
that
leaves Chennai Central at 6.00 am, so board the Brindavan Exp.(daily) at
7.15 am - arr. Bangalore at 1.20 pm.

9. Dep. Bangalore on Jan. 25(Monday) at 6.35 pm by Rajdhani Exp. - arr.
Secunderabad at 6.30 am on Jan. 26(Tuesday). Or you can take the
Bangalore-Secunderabad Exp.(daily) that leaves Bangalore about an hour
earlier to reach Secunderabad around the same time.

10. Dep. Secunderabad on Jan. 26 at 7.30 pm by Secunderabad-Bangalore
Exp. -
arr. Guntakal at 2.00 am. Then board the Hampi Exp.(daily) at 4.55 am
to
reach Hubli at 11.10 am on Jan. 27(Wednesday).

11. Dep. Hubli on Jan. 28(Thursday) at 2.50 pm by Mysore-Mumbai CST Exp.
-
arr. Pune at 3.20 am on Jan. 29(Friday). Can someone confirm that the
Mysore-Mumbai Exp. has already been introduced? If not, take the
Bangalore-Mumbai Exp. a day later (the timings are the same).

12. Dep. Pune on Jan. 30 (Saturday) at 7.15 am by Deccan Queen Exp. -
arr.
Mumbai CST at 10.40 am.


Note
----
This gives you only a couple of days at Mumbai, so you may want to
shorten
your Bangalore stint or skip Hyderabad altogether. Also, there is a
direct
train from Bangalore to Hubli - Hampi Exp. dep. Bangalore at 9.55 pm,
arr.
Hubli at 11.10 am the next day.

I have tried to include overnight journeys as much as possible so that
you
spend your daytimes fruitfully. Also, I have indicated the frequency of
the
trains so that you can shift certain journeys by a day or two.

Hope this helps,

Vijay

Yes I have played around with sound files, the MP3 files are very good,

compact compared to WAV.
YES PLEASE, lets have some WDM2 action on the WEB, I would certainly
like to
hear some sounds, from tick over until FULL POWER. And also some good

Hi gang,

Talking about loco sounds, I have a very old 45rpm extended play record
by
Decca (made in India) which has sounds of Indian Diesel Locos. I wish
they
had something like that on Indian Steam.

Don't know why but I still love those old fashioned Records than
cassettes.

I am soon going to take a trial run of sounds at Pune Jn. Although the

taking pictures, they cannot object to me openly recording sounds. The
official secrets act (c. 1890s?) will not apply to sound recordings !

That's because sounds have drastically changed since 1890.
Moreover, you wouldn't have found any gentleman carrying a gramophone
to the rly station to record the sounds in those times. Apurva, this
is just for a lark!
(Maybe, I am drastically wrong!)

different sound bites of the Alcos - I'll then bail you out for sure. If

you get some really good WDM2 pics, I'll even pay for the lawyer - only
kidding (about you getting arrested that is).

Guys, the YAM1 AC loco out of Tambaram shed is gonna be extinct as soon
as the long drawn out gauge conversion is over. This is a really cute
electric loco and I'll post some pics of this loco and some Alco pics of

the groovy Golden Rock WDM2s and YDM4s that now come to Chennai Egmore
station onto a website ASAP.

Hello,

Can someone recommend a reliable travel agency in Lucknow, one capable
of
booking tickets as well as arranging bus charters? FAX or phone numbers
and
e-mail address if available would be especially helpful.

Many Thanks!
Alan Sponberg
