WP at Daund [1990]

We were lucky to catch the last WP from Daund just before it was withdrawn. The purpose of the visit was to study the power so that the 1/20 scale Brass model of the Model Railway Society of Pune could be built. The pictures are by Vivek Kulkarni, Raman Chitale, Suresh Rao, my wife Shyama and me [Apurva].
