Another day...

I had some work at college, and I finished them quite early. I reached back at Thane station at around 1300. That was quite early for the day, and I settled on one of the benches on the platform waiting for my first photograph of the day! The first train came in at 1331, and that was a long tanker rake hauled by WDM2 #16049 of Kalyan...


Just as the Guard van of the tanker cleared the platform line, I spotted a light WCG2 rushing towards the stations. The loco slowed down, and entered Platform 7. That loco was WCG2 #20129. That action was to allow a late running EMU (just behind the loco) to go ahead!


WDM2 #17632 of Kalyan rushed towards Kalyan with a long Container rake. The rake was really long, and at the time when the loco cleared the starter, the rear caboose had not even crossed the outer! 1014 Coimbatore-LTT Express pulled in at 1359 with WCG2 #20122 in charge.


KR4 Ratnagiri-Dadar passenger came in at 1415 - Loco was WDM3A #18767R. [Read Yesterday's Blog post!]


Finally the Mangalore bound Matsyagandha pulled in at 1433 - Loco was WDM3A #18536 of Erode.


The Chennai bound 6011 express pulled in WCG2 #20116 at 1440.


For the regulars: If you had read the blog post of yesterday, you would have noted that the locos that hauled the 1014 & 6011 expresses today, were hauling the same trains yesterday! I have been noticing this since about the past two weeks - Each train now has a fixed loco link. A loco works the UP & Down trains for about two consecutive days before returning to its home!
