Meeting the Sharavati after long....

I saw the Mysore-Dadar Sharavati express after a very long time today at kurla. The loco in charge was WDM3A 18757 from pune. The loco was in the old 'green & cream' livery. The loco smoked mid-way while on the platform. The scene was too beautiful to be summarised in words!
The day was normal. One interesting fact - As my EMU from Belapur was entering Kurla, I saw the Mumbai bound Konkan Kanya rushing past. The train was over 2 hours late. It is high time KR abolishes the Rake-Sharing of Mandovi and Konkan Kanya. On many days, Konkan Kanya pulls in several hours late and that consequently delays the outgoing Mandovi. Passengers are put to undue hardships due to this.
In the evening I saw the pragati rushing past with a WCAM3. More spottings tomorrow! Bye!
