Mighty WAP- 4 was first manufactured by keeping in mind that the Locomotive can easily haul 24 coaches trains with ease, and also run upto 140 km/hr. The first WAP- 4 Locomotive 22061 "ASHOK" was manufactured in a trial basis. As it proved successful, WAP- 4 were produced in a large number, numbering from 22201 to 22399, and then 22500 to 22999. But as WAP- 5 Locomotive failed in the Ghat section with 24 coaches, and WAP- 7 proving too unreliable, the production of WAP- 4 Locomotive continued even further, with the new road number 25000 onwards. Finally the WAP- 4 production stopped with road number 25051. Powered by 22999 VSKP WAP- 4, the 18646 Hyderabad Deccan Nampally (HYB)- Howrah (HWH) EAST COAST Express races past Sankrail station through the down main line at good speed. Powered by 25000 VSKP WAP- 4, the 12073 Howrah (HWH)- Bhubaneshwar (BBS) JAN SHATABDI Express races past Sankrail through the up main line. Sankrail is situated on SER's Howrah- Kharagpur stretch. East Coast Express runs along the East Coast of India between Vijayawada and Howrah and hence the name. Earlier days originating station of this train used to be from Guntur where it was hauled by Steam Engine. The train follows the Howrah- Kharagpur- Bhubaneshwar- Khurdah Road- Vishakapatnam- Vijayawada- Kazipet- Secunderabad- Hyderabad route. The JAN SHATABDI follows the Howrah- Santragachi- Kharagpur- Balasore- Cuttack- Bhubaneswar route.

12074 Bhubaneshwar Howrah Janshatbadi too has to negotiate a TSR 30 over Cossey River Bridge but accelerates quickly enough by the time it reaches the fag end of the Khirai platform through the Reverse main line. Running only 10 mins late and seems to be chasing Coromandel which passed Khirai only 15 mins back, the race might have been quite fascinating till their destination.
