Far away from home, BHUSAWAL WAP-4 in Southern India

Very rarely WAP-4s from BHUSAWAL shed is spotted down South as these locos are always on duty in the Central, West and North of India. While I expecting ROYAPURAM WAP-7 as the power for Coimbatore Intercity Express, surprisingly BHUSAWAL WAP-4 comes as the power. Lucky to spot this shed loco which is a rarity in my area
@jmadhavadas Do these (and other) locos indicate which shed they are assigned to, or do you know from other sources?
@Maersk.146 In IR, locos are owned by loco shed . That loco shed name will always be written on the loco. Which loco should haul a particular train is decided based on load and loco rooster set by office of loco management according to Railway Board directive. So non-availability or unfit of usual loco according the rooster brings in other powers from different sheds
