WDP-4D in ERNAKULAM shed colors with VANCHINAD Express



Even though diesel locomotives are in their final days in Indian Railways, some diesel traction holding shed decided to have their ALCo colors on the EMD locos. One such shed was ERNAKULAM diesel shed which painted the WDP-4D which it received from PONMALAI shed in its own ALCo colors. WDP-4D 40103 was the first loco to have these colors. But this loco after getting its new colors was elusive to my cam for many months. I had many failed attempts. Once I spotted it around the same location but it was a cloudy day and it was a dull picture. But today I got lucky with this loco in perfect light. Finally after many months of failed attempts, tasted success !!! 🙂
Good story, nice photo! My congradulations!
