FIRST BUT NOT THE LAST : Consistent Performer Lallaguda WAP-4 With Bikaner-Secunderabad Express
Indian Railways : Seen in video is 17038/Bikaner-Secunderabad Express hauled by Lallaguda [LGD] WAP-4 #22355 at Vishwamitri [VS] station of Western Railways. This was my first capture of locomotive belonging to Lallaguda [LGD] shed belonging to South Central Railways [SCR]. After that I captured a number of LGD WAP-7 on my trip to NR and NCR. Railfan Shreejay Parmar can be seen in the video.
WAP - 4 is a one of the most consistent electric locomotive of Indian Railways.

It is capable of hauling 26 coaches at a speed of 140 km/h. The locomotive was developed, after a previous class WAP-1 was found inadequate to haul the longer, heavier express trains (24 - 26 coaches) that were becoming the mainstay of the Indian Railways network. It was introduced in 1994, with a similar bodyshell to the WAP-1 class, but with Hitachi traction motors developing 5,000 hp (3,700 kW) (5,350 hp or 3,990 kW starting). Electricals are traditional DC loco type tap changers, driving 6 traction motors arranged in Co-Co fashion. This locomotive has proved to be highly successful, with over 800 units in service and more being produced. Newer examples have been fitted with Microprocessor Controlled diagnostics, Static Converter units (instead of arnos) and roof mounted Dynamic (Rheostatic) Brakes.
The locomotive can be seen in service across the electrified network of Indian Railways and are homed at 14 sheds (depots). Technical variants include WAP-4E which are probably fitted with electronic sensor for sensing loss in pressure in pipes.
With a 24 coach passenger train, the acceleration time / distances are:
110 km/h - 198 seconds (4.8 km)
120 km/h - 260 seconds (7.5 km)
130 km/h - 445 seconds (13.5 km)
17038/Bikaner-Secunderabad Express travels 2113 km in 41h 10m with 26 halts at an average speed of 51 km/hr and belongs to South Central Railways [SCR].

Lion Of Western Railways : Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express Skips Vishwamitri : Indian Railways
Seen in video is what I call Lion of Western Railways : 12009/Mumbai Central-Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express hauled by Vadodara [BRC] WAP-5 #30069 skips Vishwamitri at moderate speed moving towards its next scheduled halt of Vadodara Junction [BRC] a few minutes late of its schedule. Railfan Shreejay Parmar can be seen in action as well. Thanks to LP for that acknowledging honk. The reason behind calling this train Lion of WR is, though it is not the fastest train between Mumbai Central and Ahmedabad but it is very popular among travelers, railfans and gets the highest patronage in its run.
