The KK is regularly hauled today by a WDM 2 pair from Itarsi. But like
mentioned
sometimes the link power fails or is not available, so odd sightings
such as TKD
locos in SBC is possible. Srinivas forgot Pune shed WDM 2s which work
the
1017/18 LTT- SBC via MRJ express. The diesel loco furthest away from
home has
been discussed before, this is the Itarsi power on the Dadar - Guwahati
express
between ET and GHY. That distance would be more than the travel of LDH
powers
sighted in Pune.

I have been trying to read all the mails, but not able to respond.
I am glad to announce the arrival of "Surabhi Sanghi" to this
world on 30th September. The life has become extremely hectic
after that.

I guess we can say that. The initial group started exchanging emails
a few months earlier, but that was by mentioning all the addresses
in every email.

I had just got a brand new workstation on my desk. The first
thing I did was to figure out how to set up mailing lists.
I didn't know whether I should seek permission from the system
staff. I figured this shouldn't really affect anyone, and in any
case it is easier to get forgiveness than to get permissions.

Several of the active members (active in relative terms, nobody was
as active as Apurva is these days) had moved that year. I had
returned to India. Vijay, I believe, got married, or changed jobs
or something. So was the case with couple of other active members.
And since we were so few active members, if many of them moved,
it had to have effect on the list. In fact, some of us were worried
whether the list will last any further.

This is thanks to Apurva, who not only started mailing a lot of
information, but spread the word, and encouraged a lot of other
railfans to join the list.

Hi everyone,
Thanks to Julian for the info about the Backwoods "B". He was
supposed to
let me know! Must get in touch.
Those IRSG Newsletters did have some stuff in them, and a bit of it was
mine. The big problem is that there wasn't that much. Trevor's need for
NWR
material places a particulalry bug strain on resources, since there
ain't
that much about when it comes to coaching and wagon stock, though data
on
the main loco classes ain't too hard to come by.
Cheers

All,

A few follow up items about Ken's message.

a) Blackwood Minatures have produced both the DHR Garratt and the C
Class now, nice but expensive.

b) What 8 books by Hugh Hughes? I know of 7 only, 3 in the first
series and 4 in the second

c) Continental Modeller produced a list of various UK museums with
Railway records some years ago now. Unfortunately, I do not have it
up here with me, but can produce a list from my own research if
anyone is interested.

d) Kelvin White's Indain Railway Study group newsletters are
obtainable for the cost of photocopying and postage, I cannot
remember all they contain, but think Ken contributed.

Dear Ramesh,

I appreciate your sentiments. However hard you try the railway
management will not budge because they are unjustly protected by the
Bearocracy in railway hiarchy.

Just imagine how they bahave when ministers travel by trains. I believe
that rail Roko is not the final answer. But let them understand once for
all how people feel when they offend the rules.
I remember the commuters in Pune had stopped the Udyan Express when The
Koyna was unjustly held by the rail officials in order to pick up some
of the relatives to the then Minister Jaffar Sharif. At last the
officials yielded to public pressure.

Hi all
i cant simply take tha fact the Itarsi WDM2 that works the Dadar -
Guwahati
express travel farthest from home shed. What about the Howrah diesel
Shed
WDM2 which tugs the Himgiri Express all the way from Howrah to Jammu
Tawi or
the Amritsar mail from Howrah to Amritsar.
Arent these much more impressive performance than the Itarsi one. It is
sad
that IR feats on the eastern sector doesnot get any value among the
Irfca
people. It appears to me that only the feats in CR , SCR and SR are
worth
noting and IR records which have been sighted for IR at IRFCA are only
viewed in terms of these three railways.
For example when I wrote with excitement that the first WDM2 out of DLW
that
is 18233 is now in poorshape in Andal ER there were hardly any replies
regarding that. But if the loco was in Pune or Gooty people would be
more
excited.
But let me tell you all the in terms of diesel loco utilisation and
management ER performs better than the rest

Joydeep

All,

I think somewhere at home I have loco diagram books for the NWR,
but will not be able to confirm this until I go home at
Xmas now.

Ken, I think I said that it was the C Class and Garratt that he had
ready, although I dimly remember seeing a B Class as well. I did not
take much interest as being back at University his prices are a
little out of my range at the moment.

All,

I really must learn not to be so fast on the send button. In my
research for the Sierra Leone Government Railway I have covered the
rolling stock to a small extent, and have found that the Met-Cammell
records at Birmingham Museum and Glouster Carriage and
Waggon Works archives are in the Glouster County Records
Office. Both these bodies are helpful, I take it that all
rolling stock would have been ordered through the India
Office rather than the Crown Agents, so there may be records
at Blackfriars, the Crown Agents records were recently moved
to the British Commonwealth Museum at Bristol.

Julian....

As far as I know there is no Sierra Leone stuff at the India Office..Ive
spent a bit of time in there and not picked up any signs....

Birmingham City Library records are excellent and the staff very helpful
and patient but only part of the Met Cam collection (which covers all
sorts of builders in the Birmingham area) is catalogued. Its worth
spending time there and persevering.

It may be worth you trying Stoke on Trent and the Staffordshire County
Archives. I was raking around looking for some else and found references
to "Birmingham Loco Carriage and Wagons (BRCW?) and found files and
files of stuff not catalogued. There is certainly Indian rolling stock
in there and I am sure I saw Leeds Forge material which should be with
the Met Cam papers in Birmingham. Might be a goldmine if you have the
time...

That is really impressive. The problem here is not being aware rather
than a
deliberate neglect of the ER and the NER. A part of the study of the IR
is
largely based on actual observation rather than referring to some
documented
information. The documents are not easily available in any case. So we
need
railfans who can represent the region.
The fact that a HWH shed power works the HWH- JAT or HWH - ASR route can
be told
only by someone who has seen this, it would hardly be a common folklore.
Pune/
Gooty/ Guntakal gets maximum mileage because Pune / Mumbai gang is
really loud
on the IRFCA and we see these powers in our backyard so they are on top
of our
minds.
I have always lamented that we have a poor representation on the IRFCA
of the
North, East and specially the NE region. This is something to do with
the poor
regional spread of the internet. You could do something about recruiting
railfans from that area. I hope you remember this request to you like I
remember the thread about the first DLW made WDM 2 from the Andal shed.

I would like to see railfans from areas like UP (only Dheeraj), MP (only
Avinash), Rajastan (none ?), Punjab (none?) Kerala (none !) etc.

Am dropping off my wife and daughter (Shreya), at the airport tonight.
Have
to wait for
7 more weeks before I can join them in India. My parents have made
reservations for the
KR trip (Panvel-Nagercoil) and Nagercoil-Chennai trips. Even though my
cousin went to the counter two months in advance,
he managed to get only RAC seats on the Kanyakumari-Chennai Exp. (for
Dec.
30). Such is the rush for
the New Year celebrations. Hopefully, these will get converted to

Next day! Surely what is meant is on the day following the next day, no?

Guwahati ~0600+1
New Delhi 1000+2
