Pictures from Yesteryear's Golden Memories.
Yesterday was Searching for Some Old Docs and also found a Old Photo Album and started browsing through it & Incidentally Found the Snaps I was looking for from Long Back. The Inaugural Pics of then "47- KAKINADA-SECUNDERABAD EXPRESS (GOUTHAMI EXPRESS).
1. Me a Small Kid aged around 4 Years on the Extreme Right Posing with My Uncle & Sister in-front of the Loco ready to do the Honours of the Inaugural run. Beautifully Decorated WDM2 of KZJ (Possible) Shed. My Dad was Clicking the Snap.
$ Instead of Posing to the Cam I was watching towards the Loco, Seems Inborn liking to the trains from Tender Age :)
Pic 2. LP In charge of the Loco Number "18822" WDM2 of KZJ (Possible) Shed.
Pic 3. Guard on Duty of the Day and the SLR Coach. You can notice the Words Written with Chalk
“47 of 03-10-87". Which Gives the Inaugural Run Date.
Thought of Sharing these Pics of Memory with you all..Hope You Like them and do excuse me for the Clarity of Pics presented them as available.
