Simply Superb.
The God Father and as well the Gem of WCR!! Biggest Surprise Ever!! Tughlakabad WAM-4 6P Chocolate 21383 With 57625 Secunderabad to Manugur Kakatiya Fast Passenger!! When I entered the station I could see the loco!! I thought Probably it might be an WAG-5 of Vijayawada! cause they come frequently then the Trademark of TKD was visible i was oh maybe it's WAG-5 of TKD when i looked at it again wow!! WAM-4's are usually rare in HYB region that too this is from TKD!! Although the appearance seems a bit old!! I guess the performance is same as before!! Feeling happy and sad as well! cause maybe in future we may or may not get to see them!! This loco has Completed 35.5 years of service _/\_!! I waited for the whole day to see which train will be hauled! wishing that they shouldn't scrap it!!...
I have few doubts!! I wish to get them clarified!
1. What's the maximum service time for a Loco?
2. Why do they scrap them? is it due to the aging of machinery? instead of scrapping why can't they overhaul or use them atleast for short distance passengers or as shunting?

I still remember the Aggressions of this Wammies.. They are just on the other league.
Growing up in SER , my childhood circled between Tata and Bhilai Wammies. It's feels so nice to see a Wammie which stills rocking the tracks of IR.
He may be old but his charm is unmatched..♥️

Wow!! They are indeed a truly nostalgia memories you had! Feels really amazing. :-D Yeah it feels so great to see them however they are almost scrapped off everywhere possible.

I remember seeing blog pictures of two WAM-4's (of Asansol I guess) at Howrah station which were shunting. Hope they are still there in shunting service.

Wow wonderful!!
My uncle was in the First batch of Electrical ALP of SER posted in Anara. I have so much memories with wammies..I take my first footplate ride in Tata Wam4 with my uncle.
My first train ride hauled by a wammie.. I also used to visit the anara yard with my father where you can spot plenty of wammies from Bhilai and Tata...
Wammies always have a big place in my heart..With their square face and their unique honkings..
far i know Asansol Wammies are now shifted to sdah for shunting puropose.

I was nearly always surrounded by WAM 4s of TATA during most of my journeys starting here

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
