Green Everywhere! Green Garib Rath Headed by Green Offlink!

Headed by an epic GOC offlink, the 12258 Kochuveli – Yeshwantpur Garib Rath Express waits patiently at Kelamangalam in Tamil Nadu 10 km south of┬áHosur early in the morning for the 12677 Ernakulam Intercity to cross past it. This was a green-letter day in the GR’s history. Its regular loco link, a KJM WDM/G3A had failed the previous day at Chingavanam in Kerala, and hence it was hauled by an electric WAG7 Tigerface from Trivandrum to Erode (first time ever!) and from there the green offlink GOC WDG3A #13562 took over. The livery of the engine nicely complements that of the train! This was among the best offlink combinations I have ever spotted! Go Green!!
