2 feet 6 inch gauge No 701 nears Solan with the 1210 Kalka to Shimla. These 2008 built ZDM3 locos look very different to the earlier versions built in the 1970s, which had a single driving cab.

That is what I was talking about sir.
Dual Cab ZDM. Couple of them are in operation in this section.
I didnt know that they are 2008 Built, but these Dual Cab Locos Started Operation after Jan 2010.

Kalka to Shimla Train Journey
This is an old scan of a photo I took while in India. The kid was too shy to let me take a photo of him looking at the camera and would keep turning away, so I just kept snapping happily away. This was on print film, before I started using slide film, I wish I'd started earlier, as the colours aren't that great.
