The 12075 JanShatabdi Grumbles Past Ernakulam

The 12075 JanShatabdi Express from Kozhikode to Thiruvananthapuram Central slowly grumbles its way past Ernakulam Town with Erode’s WAP4 #22294 in the lead. The JS was once Kerala’s most prestigious train but is today ruined thanks to ridiculous stoppages introduced everywhere by populist politicians. The full length of the first coach is seen with the unique JanShatabdi livery and design. I have often wondered why the same window design is not adopted for all types of trains in India.

WAP-4 Mela at Ernakulam

WAP-4 Locos nap at the electric trip shed at Ernakulam Junction in between duty hours. #22294, #22306 and two more unidentified ones are visible. The first one is the only one with Panto up and the others are really sleeping. Also, the first two need a serious wash and a fresh coat of paint.
