Good Morning
My Observations:
Captured 17316 Velankanni Vasco Da Gama Express in Tiruchchirapalli Jn Platform one with its regular link ED WDM 3D 11223. It underwent Loco Reversal and NOT Loco Change to Electric in Tiruchirapalli Jn. The same may take place in Erode Jn.
12665 suffered Over Take of 12661 Podhigai, 12637 Pandian SF and 16179 Mannai Express at due to loco failure (As an RF travelling in that train told the same to me to be the most possible and feasible reason) of the same in Mundilyampakkam (6 Ins from Villupuram Jn). Noticed
in TPJ with the same loco again at 03.36 in Platform No 4.
Apologies for blurred capture since my maiden capture through grills of window from 16106 Tiruchendur Chennai Egmore Express that is led by TNP WDM 3A 16863R that came 20 mts early to TPJ.
Also, attached the announcement of 17316 Velankanni Vasco Da Gama in Tiruchchirapalli Jn.
16724 Ananthapuri Expressat TPJ outer noticed with some WAP 4.
Noticed 06028 Kollam Jn Tambaram Special Fare Special with ED WDM 3A 16564 in ALU, so for your kind info, it may be running with End to End Diesel Loco.(I am not sure if LC happens at VM.)
16851 Chennai Egmore Rameswaram Express arrives Tiruchchirapalli Jn PF 5 with GOC WDM 3A 16879R.
That's all folks!
