Trains from the heavenly North East Frontier Railways - NFR is one of the 17 Zones of the vast Indian Railways Network. NFR comprises of the entire state of Assam, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh , Nagaland , parts of West Bengal & Bihar. NFR is one of India's most beautiful zones that is least explored. The trains are completely powered by Diesel Engines ALCo's & EMD's. The Zone is expected to get electrified in due course of time between Burdwan and Jalpaiguri.
This video does not cover the entire NFR Zone, how ever a very beautiful spot was chosen to capture Trains that connect to & fro various parts of West Bengal & Assam.
Salbari is a small village located between Cooch Behar and Jalpaiguri in the state of West Bengal .The main occupation of the villagers is Agriculture and Rice is the prime crop cultivated here. Most of the trains were captured between these lush green Paddy fields where the single Broad gauge line takes a sharp curvature alignment between Kolai Gram and Salvadi Stations. The water from the Galandi river is used for irrigation & drinking by the villagers.
The video was captured during the peak monsoon season hence you can see the nature at its best. Hope you find this video rejuvenating as you hear the Jet sound EMD's and the chugging ALCO's conquering the virgin terrain.
About the intro WDP4 GT46PAC 20012 christened as " BAAZ - In Sanskrit means Falcon, the bird " was the one and only Aerodynamic Fiber glass Cab fitted EMD that was painted in a unique Blue and Orange combo livery as seen. The Locomotive was first homed at Hubli EMD Shed under South Western Railways. Later the Loco was transferred to NFR's Siliguri EMD Shed. The Shed ripped off the fiber glass cab of the loco which is now a thing of past. The intro is a tribute to one of my favorite Locos. The first Locomotive in this video is the same 20012 BAAZ in Siliguri Shed livery in the present day condition. Never the less Siliguri shed has shown some interest to bring back the Baaz Livery on few other WDP4s that can be seen in this video.
