KALYAN WDG-4D with Tirunelveli - Mumbai CST AC special Express



Due to its paint scheme, this loco reminds me of Bumblebee. Hence I see this loco as "Bumblebee of IR " . These locos are a rarity at the part of India where I live as it is mostly electrified route. But by sheer luck, this loco passed through my state . But the lighting was a problem. To get this loco in perfect lighting condition, I had to travel 160 km from my home city to Kottayam. By luck, this train was an hour behind my train to Kottayam. So it gave me ample time to find a good location and get a nice well lighted shot.
