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.
