Found this video on YouTube of asn els in 2000. Never thought of seeing such old locos. Moreover wap1 of mgs shed with a marking of ER instead of ECR. Moreover black diamond express with brown livery coaches which I think has been mis-interprated as Coalfield exp as the video shows the time of 10:03 am. I would like to say a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Mani Vijay sir for this fabulous video. I have seen his many videos but all were far from my Homeland.

Thanks for posting this on my behalf :-) Here is my trip report - click here . Mughalsarai is my favorite IR station and I always remember it as belonging to ER. I wasn't exactly thrilled when it was yanked away from ER and given to MPR (Moron Paswan Railway) AKA ECR.

Ya. I said this after hearing about WAP-4 loco not being able to travel for 3000km. Please do not misunderstand this.

Re# 2780711-22            Tags   Past Edits
WAP4's are well proven and very reliable for long runs. WAP7's were initially not used for very long runs, and only in the past few years have they gradually started regular long distance haulage. The type of locomotive is not the reason for the loco reversal/change.
The route via ALLP was only completed in 1992 and Kerala express used to run via KTYM all the time (The bypass was also constructed only in the mid-80's). CHTS used to have a dedicated train to Delhi ( Jayanti Janata) which was cancelled to regularize Kerala express. As a compensation, the Kerala continued to reverse at ERS to provide a daily connection for ERS.
There is no particular limit on how much a loco can travel in a single run. Being a high priority train, Kerala gets a fresh WAP4 at ED to reduce the chances of a loco failure on the long trip. In addition, the reversal at ERS also makes it easier to use Kerala express to ferry locos from ERS to ED for maintenance instead of running them light.

Few years ago there was talk of Venad and Kerala (the only 2 trains to have loco reversal) avoiding loco reversal at ERS and instead save time by directly going through ERN.....easily 1 hour could be saved. But i guess passenger associations strongly opposed the same especially for Venad express which is used as a option for office goers. ERS is relatively more convenient and moreover during that time metro works had just started and thus traffic bottlenecks was also highlighted as a reason for them to revert back to ERS
