Some time back, I travelled to India and I will be posting some shots, some loosely revolving around the typical modes of transport. Not an exhaustive collection by any standard, but some that I came across.
This is a WAP4 electric locomotive, capable of hauling 26 coaches at 140kmph. According to wiki, this is the top speed set by the Indian Railways but the loco is capable of doing 169kmph. Painted on the front are a serial number, the Indian Railways zone and the shed (location) this particular loco belongs to. Six axles take up the 120t load of this engine. This is perhaps one of the older versions; the newer ones have headlights mounted on the top.
In the background is a second class chair car(meaning you need a ticket to board the coach but there is no seat reservation).
