The Day Started with the Loco Decoration with assistance and guidance from few railway friends of mine , The Special Day Turned on our Energy once after Seeing My Favorite LP with my Favorite Train , The Day Bloomed with complete Happiness when the entire loco was surrounded by retired loco pilots and current loco pilots and other staff's of Vaigai , Retired Loco Pilot Mr D.Krishnan Welcomed Ravi sir and Pradeep we started the Honoring Ceremony , We honored the Loco Pilot G.Kathavarayan(the seniormost LP in SR/IR with 40+ years Piloting
