Remarks & Notes 
Indian built WDM3 16845 leaves Guwahati with an afternoon train, 12th April 2015. The IRFCA website lists this as a WDM2 but the loco itself states otherwise. I don't know what the R suffix indicates. There is much trackside life to observe here. The simplest of trackside businesses - altering clothes and sewing jobs - takes place in the open air, though the proprietor has temporarily disappeared. The driver is trying to warn the considerable trackside population - including some Western photographers - of another approaching train from behind.
