Photographer's Note

Viluppuram , Tamilnadu:

I was lucky to witness a nice sunset among the machines at the Viluppuram Junction.I was on an other train from Chennai to Trichy -a city in Tamil Nadu India.We reached the Station exactly during Sunset and I witnessed one of the nicest views of the sun among manmade machinery.

This is an Electric Locomotive resting in the tracks before its journey.

Electrics are largely replacing Diesels in India nowadays.Steam Engines are already vintage stuff.I still remember my childhood days when we used to visit the 'Black Smoking Monster' and be frightened and fascinated by its functioning and unpredictable loud whistling and hisses.

Pollution and oil prices have made technology turn their heads towards Electrically operated machinery and equipment.But I still doubt Diesels can be decommissioned.

Critiques are welcome.Thanks for visiting .
