Well, I have never heard a more deadly honking being done by a WAP-4. Huge offlink 22893 WAP-4 of SRC shed honks crazily and blasts furiously through Chandanpur station on HB Chord enroute with 12318 Amritsar (ASR)- Sealdah (SDAH) AKAL TAKHT Bi-Weekly Superfast Express. The honk was exclusively meant for a huge bunch of crows, who were scavenging a couple of goats, which got crushed by a freight an hour ago. The regular link for this train is either WAP-4 of MGS/ HWH shed, or WAG-7. Incidentally, the entire fleet of locos from 22891 to 22898 belongs to SRC.
Why the hell are SRC Wappies roaming all over India?? Fed up of being at home?? Some days ago, it was hauling Lucknow Shatabdi. Then with Jaisalmer Express:

And now this.

The train uses the Amritsar- Jalandhar City- Ambala Cantt.- Saharanpur- Moradabad- Bareilly- Lucknow Charbagh- Sultanpur- Varanasi- Mughal Sarai- Patna- Jha Jha- Asansol- Burdwan- Sealdah route, and is the third best train (among 5 trains) connecting these two cities. A link portion for this train from Sealdah to Firozpur (attachment/ detachment at Ludhiana) is in demand.

The Akal Takht (literally means The Throne of the Timeless One or Throne of God) is highest seat of temporal authority of the Khalsa and is equivalent to any parliament of world sovereign State. Akal means The Timeless One - another term for God. Takht means 'seat' or 'throne' in Persian. Akal Takht is located in the Harmandir Sahib complex in Amritsar, Punjab, and faces the Darshani Deohri. The train derives its name from the same.

++ Here is my playlist of numerous off-links in Indian Railway circuit:
