Rare indeed. Are they still in action?
These locos were brought specifically to haul mining rakes on the KK line. Quite powerful compared to the other electrics back then.

Some pictures I took when I visited the Regional Rail Museum at ICF Perambur, Chennai.

The museum is housed besides the ICF coach factory and has a good collection of coaches and loco's mostly from the Meter Guage era.
They also had a nice running rail model which runs on electricity.

A nice peaceful place for rail fans and otherwise.

The Merc 220S(?) was placed on the coil springs of a coach inside the museum building.

Sadly most of the coaches and loco's had some kind of plaster on it which was painted over probably to protect them from the elements which gave them a non-original look.

Nice pictures, I had a few queries :;

1. What are the major differentiators from the coach perspective as compared to normal general class coaches in express trains ?

2. What was the occupancy level of this train ?

Regards

The difference between regular UR and Antyodaya are
#The rake is LHB
#The tubelights are LED
#Each coach has an aquaguard
#Cushions are fitted on the luggage racks as well.

Occupancy level was very poor. I travelled from Duvvada to Rajahmundry. 8 people in my coach including me and one RPF personnel. There were no vendors too as it has a non stop run from Duvvada to Rajahmundry.
