img1.jpgInaugural Run of Sealdah Puri Duranto
Sealdah Puri Duronto was inaugurated with a lot of Fanfare on Sunday 12th Feb 2012. As usual IRFCA made it's presence felt with Avishek Basu and Trayambak Ojha reporting the occasion through their lenses. This is historic as the first ICF Sleeper Duronto taking the Bhattanagr-Andul byepass into South Eastern Railway

Periodic Over Haul means the the loco/coach goes for the maintenance, testings, repairs/repaints at their given date at the respective sheds or base.
HWH WAP-4 had under gone under POH to give a new loco look at HWH shed.
