The Sheikh Zayed Road cutting through the center of Dubai and the commercial lifeline of its high profile commercial and business district appears deserted one late evening, though it was not, but for this well-timed photograph, as seen from the Dubai Internet City metro station elevator. The Sheikh Zayed Road, as the Emirates Road or E11 connecting all the Emirates of the United Arab Emirates, is called while passing through Dubai, is 12 to 16 lanes wide (6-8 lanes per side) in its business district, not including service roads. The Metro line seems to be dividing the picture into two, the blue sky above and the gray and brown buildings below.
The 12640 Brindavan Superfast Express from Bangalore City SBC to Chennai Central MAS is seen near Bayyappanahalli at Sadanandanagar hauled by Royapuram electric locomotive shed’s WAP7 electric locomotive #30379, seen in its full 24-coach length glory. It was an unbelievably hot and sunny day, as can be seen from the photo, and to catch the legend I was almost fried to a crisp. It was on the same day I captured the Double Decker and the Howrah Duronto in their full lengths as well.
