Bandra Terminus (BDTS)
Prakash Tendulkar, February 2001

 

IR fans have heard about Bandra Terminus and may know the approximate location of it. However, I am not certain if everyone knows about the tracks or alignment that leads to BDTS for trains originating from Mumbai Central.

During recent trip to Mumbai, I had an opportunity to capture the track and BDTS on film. Hope this clarifies doubts, if any.
