The WAM4, One of India's most Successful Locomotive is on verge of Extinction due to its age. WAM4 will always remain as one of the most successful indigenously designed & built E Loco by Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW). Sharing some of the Memorable pics of my love WAM4.
Pic 1- The first WAM4 20400 (Bhilai shed) resting.
Pic 2- Out of service WAM4 20410 (BRC) shells lying at Electric Loco Shed-Baroda.

Still the total cost of operating diesel traction will come out to be far less than that with electric loco. Also the diesel loco is more flexible.

then IR need not went to EMD technology. compare to construction of new line and electrification. latter is just less than 10% so it is more are like treated as up gradation. Diesel locos off coarse more flexible but there r many stretches which doesnt need that. apart from loco even NG has for flexibility of very narrow sharp curves. so consider that fact too.
