KSRTC’s TP5 Ordinary running from somewhere on the MC Road to Kottayam Collectorate. TP5 is one of KSRTC’s old warhorses and was the superstar of KSRTC when she was inducted into service in 2004 as only the very second Super Deluxe Air Bus of the corporation. TP5 was of Kottayam depot and ran the most prestigious Kottayam – Bangalore service. I share a special bond with this bus, as it was the first bus I would take to come to Bangalore. She was quite a majestic looker then and was the most advanced bus of her time as the Volvos were yet make an appearance. Her glory days definitely behind her, she still toils on as a lowly Ordinary service of Kottayam depot, here seen at Kuravilangad. But her old glory can surely still be seen!
