The is the 37334 of Santragachi back on Jan 2021, shot by me. It was leading the Coromandel Exp on its derailment day. Now planned to be scrapped due to significant damage. Life is unpredictable. In the picture given, it was the power of Thiruvananthapuram - Silchar Express back then. I have never spotted this loco ever again and will never spot it again on rails.

That loco did it's job till the end, it's 120 tonne frame probably took the full brunt of collision with the loaded freight, ended up acting as a buffer for the coaches that followed it. Imagine if there was a T-18 train in place of 12841, the death toll could have been even higher...

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
