Udyan Express is one of the three trains connecting Bombay, the financial
capital of India to the Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore. It is one of
the important trains operated by the South Western Railway which operates
on a daily basis. It generally gets the best locomotives that the
infrastructure can support. This train has been numbered as 16529/16530 and
hence falls under the South Western Railways with its maintenance being
performed at Bangalore. The train has good housekeeping services on board
due to which trained personnel clean the compartments at regular intervals.
The train has been named as the "Udyan Express" since Bangalore is a green
city. The word "Udyan" means a garden in Sanskrit, Hindi and Marathi. It is
aptly named as the Udyan Express since Bangalore is known to be dotted with
many public and private gardens.
The Udyan Express covers 1153 kilometres between Bombay and Bangalore. The
journey lasts 24 hours 50 minutes as the train passes through Maharashtra,
Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh before pulling into Bangalore City Junction. It
is interesting to note that the train enters Karnataka, enters Andhra
Pradesh and enters Karnataka again after crossing Hindupur. The Udyan
Express is one of the best trains since it covers the scenic Sahyadri
mountain ranges between Karjat and Lonavla, which are also known as the
Bhore Ghats during the day in both directions. The Bombay--Bangalore Udyan
Express also passes through the illustrious Makalidurga Ghats near
Bangalore, which is marked by sharp curves.
The Udyan Express, being one of the important trains of the South Western
Railway, is generally hauled by a single WDP4 or WDP4B, one of the most
prestigious Indian Railway locomotives which are presently homed at
Krishnarajapuram, a suburb of Bangalore. In the absence of either of the
locomotives, the train is hauled by a pair of twin WDG3As

SBC Rajdhani Races with Udyan & Accelerates thru Yelahanka
Trains: 12493 Bangalore/SBC - Delhi/NZM Rajdhani Express and 16530
Bangalore/SBC - Mumbai/CSTM Udyan Express.
Locomotives: Kazipet/KZJ WDM3A 18822 for Rajdhani and Krishnarajapuram/KJM
Location: Yelahanka station/YNK.
Camera: Canon EOS 550D.
We were supposed to reach YPR by 1730hrs. but even at 2115hrs, we were
still at YNK. That was how much our BZA-YPR Passenger was delayed that day.
Seen here is KZJ's dirty WDM3A entering Yelahanka from the Yesvantpur line
with the now-LHB Bangalore Rajdhani, and accelerating through the station
while KJM WDP4 enters from the Channasandra line with the Udyan Express.
Indian Railways sight and sound spectacular
This video is a compilation of short pieces taken (with permission ) from
the channels of four Indian Railway videographers. I find the Indian
Railways fascinating to watch and enjoy the videos coming out of the
country. It was that which prompted me to put this piece together for
others to enjoy and perhaps share the amazing scenes that one sees there.
There's not too many places in the railway world that you can still hear
the steady chug of an ALCO , a modern EMD or the whine of a big electric
all in the same place. India has got the lot.
The work is compiled in no particular order of merit or favourites but
simply as it was taken down from Youtube.
It has been "bordered" because it was a mix of standard definition at 480p
and high definition at 720p. It was edited to fit together neatly and to
retain as much quality as possible for rendering at HD 720p. Some small
amounts of tweaking were done to enhance contrast and exposure but it is
basically as shot. Considerable tweaking was done to provide stereo sound
The work comes from the following Youtube channels :-
I thank the guys for letting me use their work to put this together.
300 UPLOAD ! UDYAN EXPRESS WITH EMD BANKERS RAREST ACTION EVER
This is one of the biggest shocker I never expected shooting my 300th
upload , it was always my wish to go Karjat - Lonavala to capture Udyan
Express with Bankers but now I don't have to go that far at all !!!
Unexpectedly, I happened to see the train running info and spotted Udyan
running late by 1hour 30 mins today (23rd July 2012) . Speculations arises,
chances of a off-link, as usual got to my adda (BNC Outer) with my cam to
capture the SWR's pride, a little disappointed at first looking at the
usual KJM WDP-4 still kept my cam rolling with absolutely no hope at all,
as I zoom towards the Train board thats when I realized the EMD humming and
for my surprise I discovered 2 Live GOOTY bankers attached at the rare
I was stunned for a second at what I was seeing !!!
This is one of the rarest scene ever and I feel I am the luckiest one to
capture this rarest action , Udyan coming to Bangalore with Bankers action
Later got to know KJM WDP-4 had some technical issues and a Freight train
had to sacrifice its EMD's for Udyan!!!
