UDYAN EXPRESS BHOR GHATS - KARJAT - LONAVALA
SWR's Pride Udyan Express hauled by Namma KJM EMD 20036 WDP4 an
unforgettable journey on the Karjat- Lonavala Bhor Ghats Section in the
midst of heavy rains. KALYAN WAG7 Triple powered Bankers help Udyan to

misty Sahayadri mountain ranges and seasonal Waterfalls makes it a glorious
Konark Express Meets KJM WDP4 with Udyan Express on the Western Ghats at Sunset
Kazipet 'Baldie' WDM3A, aided by 3 WAG7s at the back, hauls the 11019
Mumbai CST Bhubaneshwar Konark Express through the Bhor ghats between
Karjat and Lonavala at sunset. Being March, the ghats are bereft of much
vegetation but the rocky hills, above 2000 feet in height at this point
offer some stunning views of the terrain. The Indian winter has also dried
up the waterfalls and one can only observe their paths of progress down the
rocks at places. As we flit in and out of tunnels, and through the Western
Ghats, we encounter the Krishnarajapuram (ex Hubli) WDP4 hauled 16530
Bangalore Mumbai CST Udyan Express, merrily descending through the ghats!
