Fresh out of the paint shop and looking fiery red and drop-dead gorgeous, Erode’s veteran Superstar WAP4 #22269 stands at Ernakulam Town with the 12677 Bangalore – Ernakulam Intercity Express and a dead WAP4 #22390 in tow. 22269 was just out of POH (Periodic Overhaul) which all locomotives and coaches have to undergo periodically for complete repair and overhaul. Spotting freshly POH-ed locomotives is considered to be rare luck!
This is the actual photo and how the loco really looks. The photo was not enhanced in any way.
