Beautiful twin-tone HWH WAP-4 honks with LTT Super Crawler Express
More than 3 hours late running 18029 Mumbai Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT)- Shalimar (SHM) Fast Passenger... err... I mean, Express headed by a beautifully twin tone honking 22377 WAP-4E of Howrah shed cruises through the Down Main line at Ghoraghata on SER's KGP-HWH stretch enroute. Seemed the elder brother of SRC Wappie
was fed up of doing duty with the Super-Crawler, and wanted to return to the shed as soon as possible.
The train uses the LTT- Kalyan- Manmad- Bhusaval- Akola- Badnera- Nagpur- Gondia- Durg- Raipur- Bilaspur- Jharsaguda- Rourkela- Tatanagar- Kharagpur- Santragachi- Shalimar route, and takes 38 hours 25 minutes to cover the 1947 kms with an irritating 81 halts enroute. The train is still popularly known as KURLA Express.

In TN ,station names are written Tamil.But in English,they are translated and written.Eg Vannarpettai in Tamil is written as Washermanpet' in English.It should be same as Vannarpettai,.(Refentry# 444914)?
Now, are there such stations in other zones,where stn names are translated?
And is it correct to translate like that? I feel original name to be retained in English.
