KJM WDM2 #17477 Waits to Cross Old Madras Road

The WDM2 is Indian Railways’ most recognized and iconic locomotives ever. Also called ALCOs as they were designed by the American Locomotive Company, these 2400 hp diesel workhorses are responsible for Indian Railways becoming what it is today. One of them, the freshly painted and good looking WDM2 #17477 of the Krishnarajapuram (KJM) Diesel shed in Bangalore waits on a much-neglected branch spur line at the Bayyappanahalli junction on Old Madras Road, Bangalore, with officials waiting to guide it along across the busy road. Unlike other places, at this junction trains have to wait for the roads to be cleared for them so that they can cross and go onwards towards the BEML facility. This is quite a sight to behold! A pillar of the Bangalore Metro can be seen in the background.
