Spotting a WDP4 after a long time!

I spotted a WDP4 in action after a very long time, today at Kurla, and then at Thane. The last time I saw a WDP4 was on October 31 at Madgaon. The loco was shunting the rake of the Konkan Kanya Express. Today I managed to have a glimpse of the loco, first notching past Kurla and then waiting at Thane for the starter. The loco was WDP4 #20016 (reportedly from KJM, but still has the Hubli logo on!). The beast looked tired and requires a paint job urgently!
The day was relatively dry except for spotting of the MAS-CSTM Express. There were nothing noteworthy today except for a very funny incidence at college::
We (my batch of 13 students) were to have our Pharmacology practical examination today (The very same Frog Murder: For new comers - Click here). Accordingly I made it college at 0900 AM well in time for the 1000AM exam. We all got ready (wearing our white lab coats), took all the required apparatus (dissection box), and were waiting near the laboratory. Since this was an university conducted examination, the examiners were outsiders. They hadn't arrived. We were made to wait. The clocked ticked past 1100 AM, still there were no signs of the examiners. Our principal was on leave, and the next 'in-charge' was tensed and she made frantic calls to the university. She realised a very cruel joke: The university had totally forgotten about our college while appointing examiners!!! We had none! Finally some alternates were searched, and two examiners were arranged. They are expected to make it to our college tomorrow! We finally returned home!
So thats it for the day! Keep a look out for some interesting turns and twists tomorrow..Keep visiting!
