Old memories of 2012!! Microprocessor WDM-3A Tamralipta Superfast kicks fog, and screams past!!
On a shivering morning of December 2012, when a thick blanket of fog engulfed the entire state of West Bengal with a temperature below 5 degree centigrade, headlight switched 16138 KGP (Kharagpur) WDM- 3A (Micro-processor fitted) screams at dreamy early risers, and races through the curve prior to
Kulgachia station on SER's Santragachi- Kharagpur stretch with the 12857 Howrah (HWH)- Digha Flag Station (DGHA) TAMRALIPTA Superfast Express.
The Digha bound trains used to get diesel links till September 2013, when the links were changed to WAM- 4 or WAP- 4.

The train uses the Howrah- Santragachi- Uluberia- Mecheda- Tamluk- Kanthi- Ramnagar Bengal- Digha route.
Btw, Digha is a very popular seashore of Bengal, and is quite close to another seashore Mandarmani. Train services to Digha started in the year 2004.

I traveled with my office team earlier this month to Digha by this train and it was hauled by a WAM-4 Loco... many EMUs & other Long Distance SFs were made to over take our train between Howrah and Santragachi Jn... even other Long Distance SFs from the opposite direction were made to cross it. All this resulted in too many unscheduled halts but then our train reached at Digha Flag Station 5 minutes before time... make up after Mecheda Jn was awesome :-D
