Thank you, Apurva for the info and the link. Its hard to believe we are
going into the year 2000 and the 251 is still being manufactured!

Dear Sandeep and Gang,

Apart from the Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Gujarat name changes,
here
are a few that are not that well known :

Bezwada which became Vijayawada (BZA)
Gauhati which became Guwahati (GHY)
Waltair which became Visakhapatnam (WAT also became VSKP)
Olavvakot which became Palghat
Was Itarsi called Etarsi (ET)

Dear Shirish,

Where does the KR meet the existing Kulem - Vasco line (now BG). Are
there
separate KR and IR stations. I remember the Madgaon KRstation was being
built
somewhat to the east of the old station, towards Chandor / Sanvordem.
Just
curiosity from an old Goa hand. I also hope the Goans' main fear that
the Se
Cathedral and the Basilica of Bom Jesus would tumble down due to the
vibrations
from the Old Goa tunnel have been put to rest now.

Subject: Inside the WCAM 3

Date: 19 Oct 1999 03:51:51 -0500


Gang !

We had a sort of a mini IRFCA get together at Pune yesterday. Anand
Krishnan was here
with his cousin Vijay from HYB and I.S. Anand ( he would join the IRFCA
from today !)
was here from Mumbai. A few pleasant hours were spent discussing the
variants of WDM
2s, footplating experiences etc.

Later in the afternoon Anand K, Vijay and I did a round of the station.
We attended
the incoming 7308 Up Koyna Express. The driver took us on a shunting
hop. The Guntakal
(ex Gooty) WDM 2 loco was stabled and shutdown in the Mumbai side
siding. The amount
of oil spilt on this siding is to be seen to be believed. Just a black
patch of
slippery goo the permanent way. Anand K. is due to return to HYB by 7031
down today. I
almost convinced Anand K. into cancelling his ticket and instead
footplating to
Kolhapur with the same driver by the 7303 Sahyadri Express and then
taking the KOP -
TPTY Haripriya Express which seems to have some link to HYB with
Rayalseema express at
Guntakal. He would have reached 24 hours late to work but hopefully more
learned and
happy. But compulsions of work cancelled his plans.

We also paid a visit to the electric loco shed to have a look at the
WCAM 3. One
friendly 'engine turner' showed us the functioning of the loco. My
impressions of the
WCAM 3.

The loco is an dual voltage 4800 HP loco with high adhesion bogies and
is of similar
technology as the WAG 7s etc. The loco is crammed with stuff, there is
just no spare
space anywhere. The cab has two small folding jump seats for the crew.
The direct
contrast is the DC locos like WCM 1s where neither driver would have to
get off from
their seat when a third person enters the cab. There are protective
relays (Alsthom),
switches, electrical meters etc in the panels behind the drivers. The
battery master
switch was in one cab while the loco was to be driven in the other
direction from the
second cab. So we went through the passage between the cabs. This is
very narrow. I
entered edgewise and had to remain in in that position throughout, I
could not turn in
that passage ! Actually there are two passages running the the edge of
the loco frame.
The entire equipment is crammed in the space in between the passages.
There is a fair
amount of imported equipment in the loco, the power convertor is French
(converts line
voltage to 440 V 3 phase to drive the traction motor blowers, motor
generator sets,
compressors, exhausters etc..), there was a German equipment in a large
panel whose
function is not very clear to me. The power has computerized diagnostic
equipment,
although this seems to be more of a blind data acquisition system whose
readout and
analysis equipment is plugged in the shed. I did not see any fancy
electronics (head
up display, black box etc. on board). There are two monstrous blowers on
top of each
bogie to cool the traction motors. These are much bigger than the
blowers found in a
WCM 1 -5. The suction that these create can be felt by the flapping
shirt sleeves if
the passage door is open and the blowers are running. Walking between
cabs on the run
would be something of a challenge with so much of heavy machinery
running so close.
The engine turner mentioned that they walk between the cabs ducking
near the area of
peak suction.
The locos have proportionate braking, the loco brakes operate in
proportion to the
train brakes, the WCM 4 and WCM 5 had this feature. There is a switch to
select
whether your train brakes are air or vacuum.
Some of the WCAM 3s have only air brakes, although they have both type
of piping at
the buffer beams. This I have observed in Valsad WCAM 2 also.
Initially a 'baby' compressor is started on battery supply to build up
control
pressure. Once the panto could be raised, the main compressor started
it's pounding
duty right behind the driver's firewall. The loco is quieter than the
WCG 2 but not as
quiet as the WCM 1/2 and 5.
The dashboard has the standard vertical strip type ammeters and
voltmeters found on
all WAM 4s etc. Also the lever switch cum annunciator panels for all the
electrical
functions like blowers, headlamps etc. There are two lever type horns
set under the
desk. The master controller is a small wheel which rotates only one step
to the right
(motoring) and one to the left (dynamic braking). The notch position is
read on two
LARGE round meters of which one shows notch 0 -33 and the other shows 34
- 39. The
loco has a servo mechanism which translates the notching action from the
master
controller to the resistor bank (DC traction) or to the tap changer (AC
traction). The
master controller is thus moved one step to the right, released (return
to normal
under spring tension) and again moved to the right successively for
notching up.
There is also forward - off - reverse control with 4 field weakening
position lever.
The other control is the panto lever with AC (single bar panto), DC
(dual bar panto)
and emergency mode (where the 'wrong' panto can be used with reduced
performance in an
emergency).
The standard A9 and SA9 brake valves are used in the left driving
position.
In conclusion I would say that BHEL and CLW had done a great job in
making a powerful
and reliable locomotive, the external appearance belies the
complications inside. This
loco has brought punctuality back to the Mumbai division.

I also heard from the engine turner that only Manmad bound trains
(Panchwati, Devagiri
etc) are hauled through by this loco with its dual voltage capabilities.
He confirmed
that trains further than that toward North and East via Bhusawal are
hauled by AC
locos from Igatpuri. Thus the only reason for shortening of the IGP halt
is the air
brakes on most of the trains apart from the smart train management by
the IGP staff.

Ugly, is it not ? This is the balding forehead look that we talk about.
Why must the DLW attempt
streamlining in such a crude way is anyone's guess. Mercifully the new
locos (atleast the new
WDG2s) have the original 'half a hexagon' profile of the classic WDM 2.
Note the door on the right of the short hood (reversed driving
position).

Subject: Needs tips for KR travel

Date: 19 Oct 1999 08:41:56 -0500


Folks,

The first of my journeys would be on the Gandhidham-Nagercoil Exp.
from
Panvel to Nagercoil. I would appreciate any feedback from you "Gurus"
about
some concerns/questions that I have -

1. Since this doesn't have First Class I have opted for Sleeper class
rather
than being cooped up in an AC coach and miss all the fun!! Should I be
concerned about overcrowding on this route with reservation-less folks
creating a nuisance?

2. What is the average delay on KR these days? How late can I expect
this
train to be at my destination?

3. Panvel-Sawantwadi is covered during the night. Would I missing out
scenery-wise or does the route beyond Sawantwadi have a lot to offer?

4. Any railfanning tips such as scenic stretches, interesting stations,
junction points, loco sheds, liveried trains, etc. on this route would
be
welcome. I plan to actively use my camcorder.

Thanks,
Vijay

Actually the old MG Madgaon station is diagonally across the BG lines.
When I saw the
BG MAO station in 1997 there were a few stranded MG wagons still at the
older MAO
station.
On the BG side the SCR line from Kulem enter north east end of Madgaon.
The KR line
from Mangalore enter the MAO station from the South east direction. The
SCR line and
the KR line then leave Madgaon and proceed via Surawali halt to Majorda
Jn (a junction
now). The SCR line then go SW towards Vasco while crossing over at the
Majorda home.
Similarly KR traffic which would travel on the left most line from MAO -
Surawali
would cross at Majorda and then proceed towards North via Verna,
Karmali, Pernem and
Sawantwadi.

There is some truth in these fears. Ecologically the BG line would
cause damage to
the pristine land between Pernem and Madgaon. I was in Goa in 1997 to
attend to some
commissioning problems in the DMU that runs between Sawantwadi and
Karwar. The land
was so soft that it would sink a couple inches every time the DMU passed
a spot
(outside the Courtalim church). The workers would wait at the site to
strengthen the
permanent way after every run and realign the rails. The loud DMU horn
and the diesel
engine exhaust would disturb nesting birds amongst otherwise tranquil
rice fields.

The BG line would allow the arrival of the large numbers of tourist
from all over the
country which would corrupt the unique Goan lifestyle and culture.

I am at a loss to understand which class of the locos this might be. Can
you send an
URL where pictures of these locos can be found ? As far as I know the
only Russian
locos (shunting duty) in India are those which operate within the Bhilai
steel plant
or in the Vishakhapatnam port trust. If these are the same locos then
their engine
have been replaced with a Cummins India power plant as the Russian prime
mover spares
were difficult to get. I take the liberty of forwarding your mail to the

Well, on this one there should not be any problem ... since the load on
the
KR is not so high for short distance travel. Trains halt at select
stations
too, so not much problem.
>
> 2. What is the average delay on KR these days? How late can I expect
this
> train to be at my destination?

Trains are pretty punctual ... my last few trips in Aug - Sept - Oct
resulted in delays of not more than an hour to two.

3. Panvel-Sawantwadi is covered during the night. Would I missing out
scenery-wise or does the route beyond Sawantwadi have a lot to offer?

You will travel about 450 km which is no small distance. This is what
you
might miss ... Panvel to Roha (CR) is quite scenic and the impression is
of
passing through a thick jungle few hillocks and wide plains at times.
Roha
to Karanjadi (just after Veer Dasgaon) is almost the same.

You have the Natuwadi tunnel (secoond longest) and pass through Khed.
Khed
to Chiplun is dominated by travel along the side of the Vashishti River,
and
scenic hills ahead. Chiplun to Ratnagiri is dominated by some
spectacular
river bridges and major tunnels. The terrain gets rugged here ... and is
dominated by numerous cuttings too. The line gradually climbs here and
the
feeling is that you are on a highly elevated section - about 30 - 40 m
above
the rest of the land around. Closer to Ratnagiri, pass through the
longest
tunnel - the Karbude.

Ratnagiri to Vaibhavwadi Road is again tough terrain ... scenic views
from
viaducts high above ... again a few long tunnels (over 2 km) and
numerous
tunnels and cutouts here too .. 10 km out of Ratnagiri , encounter the
Panval Nadi Viaduct - the third of 5 viaducts as you leave Ratnagiri.
The
feeling is weird especially for those used to travel on the Bhor Ghats
(where the climb is slow and gradual) ... the train speeds through ghat
like
territorry at high speed and this can really knock your senses (believe
me
guys ... I never cease to get knocked by this effect each time... )

Vaibhavwadi to Nandgaon shows a gradual change in the landscape which
tends
to roll more now ...
and upto Goa.

Don't worry .. you will have to dedicate another trip for all that ...
"too
much for the railways to show you in one day" Just be positive about
what
you're getting below...

4. Any railfanning tips such as scenic stretches, interesting stations,
junction points, loco sheds, liveried trains, etc. on this route would
be
welcome. I plan to actively use my camcorder.

Goa onwards features truly coastal fare. In terms of crossing major
rivers
.. the Mandovi, the Zuari, Cortallim embankment ... river bridges,
coastal
scenic beauty dominated by paddy fields, palm trees
In South Goa, after Canacona the line comes quite close to the sea
coast.
The Kalanadi River near Karwar and the mightty Sharavati (longest bridge
of
2.1km). Till Kundapur there are still cut outs and few tunnels. The
stretch
from Kundapura to Thokur is extremely scenic being flat with fine river
bridges and palm trees amidst green paddy fields

Leave the KR at Thokur and enter SR for a brief halt at Kankanadi. Head
southwards towards Kerala where the huge bridge over the Netravati River
can
be encountered...
The line runs along the coast and the view is very scenic right through
to
Cannanore
One of my favourites is between Kankanadi and Kanhangad (just after
Kasaragod) which I consider very scenic. See that you face west for your
entire trip along the line from Goa onwards ... ..

My answer is general now but I will fill up more details as we go along
...

Rajan
