One of the Named Locomotives of Indian Railways, "Neelakant" from Diesel Loco Shed, Hubballi (UBL) powers 17308 / Bagalkot Mysuru Basava Express bound to Mysuru.
"Neelakant", can be translated as "blue Throat", and this is the Name of Lord Siva, who is believed to have consumed the poison.
Loco Number 12169, WDG 4 from Diesel Loco Shed, Hubballi (UBL) is named as Neelakant, and this loco powers Basava Express fondly known as the "Celestial Bull".
Note the Indian Flags which are pasted on both sides of the Flasher Light, which gives a kind of different appearance to the Locomotive.
