India: Running out of Steam (part 3) – The Little Tibetan Terrier

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

These are excerpts from National Geographic’s “The Great Indian Railway”(1995), probably the best documentary ever on the Indian Railways. As a young boy, I used to travel to Grandma’s place by the Howrah Mail from Madras. In 1989, on one such trip, My dad pointed out to a gigantic engine puffing smoke in the shed at Madras central as our train was leaving and said: “Manu, look, that’s a steam engine”. I forgot about steam engines later. In 1999(10 years later), I watched the National Geographic’s special screening of this documentary on TV. I remembered my encounter with the puffing beasts in 1989. I couldn’t stop crying by the end of this documentary. Starting in the early 80’s the Steam engines of the Indian Railways have been slowly phased out of all the main lines in favor of Electric and Diesel locomotives due to economic pressures. By the turn of the 90’s, it had become a rare sight to see a Steam-driven train. You can buy the DVD or VHS of this 115 minute documentary on nationalgeographic.com. It costs including US local postage.

The toy train heading down from Matheran. It isn’t the best shot, but it took time to get my camera out safely in the heavy rain and I didn’t have time to compose the shot properly.

Fascinating suburban trains in Mumbai, India !

Friday, December 30th, 2011

I was travelling in Mangala/Lakshadweep Express a few months ago from New Delhi to Trivandrum when came accross this suburban train in the outskirts of Mumbai in a parellel track. We travelled together a few minutes before we overtook that train. This made me study a bit more about the amazing suburban trains of Mumbai: The Suburban Railway System in Mumbai is the most complex,densely loaded and intensively utilized system in the world. It has the highest passenger density in the World – 6.3 million commuters travel everyday. Two zonal Railways, Western Railway (WR) and Central Railway (CR), operate the Mumbai Suburban Railway System. It is spread over an expanse of 319 route kms. The suburban services are run by Electric Multiple Units (EMUs). 191 rakes (train sets) of 9-car and 12-car composition are utilized to run a total of 2226 train services. It is operated on 1500 Volt DC power supply from overhead catenary. Follow this url- en.wikipedia.org to learn more about Mumbai suburban railway.
