Finally, Congratulations Goa's fans
First LHB train of SWR's UBL division...
The one and only GOA SF EXPRESS.

At present only 2 out of the 5 rakes are to be LHBfied.

I hope after all 5 rakes are converted to LHB they give it the much needed speedlift. 2 to 3 hours speed up possible across the route from VSG to NZM.
Right now ET NZM ET section mein bahut humiliation jhelna padta hai isse 😔 I pray 🙏 that atleast LHBfication saves my darling 💗 Goa SF.

Also another thing to note it's CC will be 19 plus 2 parcel vans so total 21 LHB coaches. So proved here that Braganza Ghats LHB coach limit is 21. In future we can expect those parcel vans to be replaced with AC economy coaches.

Overall a happy day for me with some expectations still remaining like the speed up and full 21 pax coaches. 😊

ZBTT sucks
Wonderful news! Hope this leads to a speedup as well.

This year we absolutely need a speedup of Goa, TN, GT, KK, TNSK/Thirukkural and many others that have been atrociously slowed down.

Wonderful shot! I was wondering where this loco would be used, since it wasn't HOG capable. And here it is!

KSR Bengaluru - Chennai Shatabdi express skipping Baiyappanahalli at 110 kmph MPS while a man crossing track luckily escaped from this speeding train. Pls use Foot over bridge for crosing and don't use tracks. It is highly risky.

Tuticorin - Mysuru express was looped at Baiyappanahalli for late running Chennai - SSPN express to overtake. Enjoy the early morning high speed actions at Baiyappanahalli. Do watch and share the video.

Wonderful captures sir! I was slightly surprised at seeing SSPN Express in an LHB avatar, and then remembered that GK got LHB so it made sense.

The MAS - AJJ section was deemed 130 fit long ago I believe. But no trains have received clearance to run at 130 yet, not sure why

I don't want Tejas to become a trainset :(
Shatabdi can get converted, but Madurai Tejas has a charm of its own
