We were lucky to catch the last WP from Daund just before it was withdrawn.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].
|Look who is here! The WP 7715 stares in our face at Daund.|
|The running shed is in front of us, the workshops are the large building towards the left rear. The loco foreman's office is the white building on the left. The lines to the right lead to Solapur.|
