Don't go by the figures mentioned in the monthly electric loco holding file. If 4 WAP-5,s were rolled out in Sep-16 and 2 in Oct-16 then they would have been updated in the portal. I don't think that there are 6 WAP-5,s waiting at CLW for shed allocation. They hardly have that much area to hold locos once produced.

Reply #1159 - Those were September's outturns :P. October's outturn 30111 and 112 yet to be allotted.
I guess the word "outturn" is a tricky word here. The locos which underwent production and are "expected" to be rolled out is what the outturn list (& PDF) shows on elocos.

^ Looks like CLW is going to follow T20 policy.... increasing the run rate towards the end of an innings :P
Main gear - 67 teeth
Intermediate gear - 35 teeth
Pinion -
17 teeth
Only one loco has 3-stage gears and we know it :D
In June, a similar tender was floated for 10 sets.
Let's see if they manage to touch 30 by March. Fingers crossed. Hoping for the best X-D.

Date of Receipt : 18 Mar 2016
Received by : Ministry of Railways, ( Railway Board)
Forwarded to : Electrical Engg Directorate
Contact Address : Room No 111 First Floor,
Rail Bhawan New Delhi

Contact Number : 01123381869
Grievance Description : To Railway Board, Subject:- WAP-7 locomotive for upcoming GKP ELS From the pg reply I got for my previous MORLY/E/2016/04185, it is clear that JHS wont be allotted WAP-7 locomotives any sooner for trains like Pushpak Express, Sant Kabir Dham Express, Kushinagar Express, etc. Lucknow-Gorakhpur section of North-Eastern Railway will soon be electrified. Now, NER till date was a complete diesel hauled zone with no Electric Loco Shed under it. In such conditions, After the electrification of GKP-LJN section, Railway Board is requested to specially provide 3phase locomotive training to NER/GKP helping them to shed WAG-9 firstly and soon they should be able to shed WAP-7. Sant Kabir Dham, Kushinagar Express etc use WAP-7 of CR, when CR themselves have only 15 WAP-7 locomotives only. Many other CR trains need WAP-7 like 24 coach Pushpak, Vidarbha, Sevagram, etc
Current Status : CASE CLOSED
Date of Action : 08 Jul 2016
Details : Since, production of conventional tap changer locomotives has been stopped, sufficient no. of three phase locomotives will be provided to Gorakhpur electric loco shed in NER and training of staff will be planned as and when required.

Re# 1935768-79            Tags   Past Edits
You all guys are slogging it out unnecessary and its very important to set records straight. And let me do it for everyone who is involved in this dogfight.
@ KYN P-7: You are correct when it comes to GKP ELS. It is a long way to go in set up forget about WAP-5/WAP-7/WAG-9 allocations. And then high speed operation and so on .
Now Regarding P-7 VS P-5: You are going by the driver's versions and if you want to standby it please continue to do so because you are then
living into a fool's paradise. When WAP-5,s were brought in GZB they have hauled all the major Rajdhani,s/Shatabdi,s trains when WAP-7,s were not there. Today's GZB WAP-5,s are much more older hence reliability issues are much more higher compared to new WAP-7,s. But if you look at the overall statistics of loco availability year wise WAP-5 availability is much better than WAP-7 or WAP-4. in terms of percentages.
All the trains which you have mentioned Mumbai Rajdhani,s , Kolkata Rajdhani,s Duronto,s were on GZB links. GZB has been shifting the link from WAP-5,s to WAP-7,s because at the time of departure this is the suitable loco which is available for operation. Now this does mean WAP-5,s are not fit for Rajdhani/Shatabdi operation but the availability of the coaching link is a factory because their are only 100 WAP-5,s today compared to 266 WAP-7,s. There are still trains today Rajdhani/Shatabdi which are hauled by WAP-5,s 12001/12002/12003/12004/12013/12014/12431/12432 and so on and so for.
Coming to demand for high speed travel. Your Tejas which is starting from GKP to NDLS is on the same concept 130KMPH ops with AC3 tier accommodation similar to Garib Rath this is where the demand is increasing. And when I mentioned this in my post I said especially between the Metros the demand is there. Today people spend 5000-6000 rupees fly Indigo rather than taking a rajdhani which including food will set me apart by around 5000. Don't compare people who travel SL class they are those people who would have never travelled a decade ago and today can afford a railway tkt. So the target market are different.
While WAP-7,s are good for today they will be redundant tommorrow because IR needs Semi High speed and High Speed trains .
To answer your question why AJNI/LGD are providing links is because NR has officially stated that with its lines coming under the wires their need for elocos have gone up; JAT got electrified; HW got electrified; LKO-BSB route got electrified. Hence lots of train links which were on GZB have been t/fed to WCR/WR/CR and their is a circular which was formally issued.
Also just for your information there will be a separated shed which would come up in Ajni for the DFC locos they will not be accommodated in the current shed. And a similar shed which would be much bigger is coming up in Saharanpur
@ HOG WAP-5: You are correct that's why when WAP-5 used to go down south to MAS/SC with the Rajdhani,s it was speed restricted.
Hope this will put an end to the debate.

Re# 1935768-81            Tags   Past Edits
Anyways, I trust what I get to see. I am a WAP-5 lover as well but that doesnt mean I stay in fool's paradise w.r.t it's abilities or try to fool others too about the same.
I have been hearing the same from WAP4 supporters too, WAP4 still has abilities to haul rajdhani/shatabdi. they didnt mention abt WAP-5's ability there. Here also, the same, you have mention about P5's ability but you didn't mention about WAP4's ability did you? :D
You said GZB has been shifting the link from WAP-5,s to WAP-7,s
because at the time of departure this is the suitable loco which is available for operation.
I also talked about preferred loco or suitable loco not about abilities of loco.
Preferred loco as in WAP7 which can give 130-140 mps as a WAP4/5 with Rajdhani trains. But diference, is WAP7 has better accelerating ability than the other two and also are better with long rakes. Now, better acceleration is needed as the routes are now congested especially routes like NCR/ALD which have maximum no of Rajdhani passing through it and No. of coaches in Rajdhani has increased, from 17 icf/LHB rajdhani to 20-21 LHB coaches, again that makes WAP7 most suitable.
Reality is before us, WAP7 has not only replaced WAP5 of BCT/AK Rajdhani but also replaced WAP-4 of DBRT/RJPB/BBS Rajdhani.
WAP-5 was regular link of BCT Rajdhani. It was not a case of whichever loco GZB ELS/NDLS trip shed had i.e wap5/7, that would be given. But for once, WAP5 experienced wheel slipping due to drizzling weather n cudnt maintain 130 mps with 20 coach load. Deliberately and immediately, the WAP-5 was replaced by WAP-7.
That system of which ever loco is available shud be given, is still prevalent for Ranchi/MAO/TVC Rajdhani. But there have been clear and deliberate replacements of wap-5 by wap-7 for 130 mps trains like MAS-NZM Drnt, PUNE-NZM Drnt and BCT Raj.
While 110 mps trains like nzm-pune is given wap5, which runs ontime even when a WAG7 is given.

Yes. ofcourse. you only know everything about it n others stay in fool paradise isnt it?
anyways, you continue with your never ending WAIT of HWH WAP-5, for which I have already got a reply recently from ER.
Soon, a reply for/frm SCR/CR too is expected, will show that too.
From ER's reply too, its evident, that 130 mps is given by both
WAP-5 n WAP-7, n they are preffering WAP-7 currently, finding no need to shed wap5 until in future, enhancement of speed is done in HWH NDLS section. so, it clear for 110 mps trains n also 130 mps Rajs, wap-4 and wap-7 are there. If speed upgradations are done, then only wap-5 migh come in picture.
Grievance Description : Subject:- WAP-5 locomotive for ER zone. There is extreme crowd in allotment of WAP-7 locomotives. as a result of which only few wap-7 could be allotted to HWH ELS of ER. In such a case, WAP-5 locomotive can be tried to be shed in HWH ELS by transferring HWH WAP-4 to Asansol or to shed WAP-5 in Asansol ELS itself. WAP-5 is an high speed locomotive. ER/ECR section of dankuni-dhanbad-mgs is 130 kmph fit and soon upgradation is expected. Even the Asansol-PNBE-MGS section is soon getting upgraded from 110 kmph mps to 130 kmph mps. Hence, for such high speed zone, and huge no of trains, few WAP-7 wont be enough. In such case, WAP-5 locomotive should be shed in one of ER ELS Asansol or HWH.
Current Status : CASE CLOSED
Date of Action : 28 Mar 2016
Details : Allotment of locomotives to shed is done by Railway Board on requirement basis.Electric loco shed , Howrah has 19 nos. WAP-7 locomotives which haul mail/express trains including prestigious trains like Rajdhani Duroto . During the current year 2015-16, Railway Board has already allotted 04 nos. more WAP-7 locomotives to Electric Loco Shed, Howrah which will be used to haul more new trains and diesel to electric traction converted trains.it may be noted that both the locomotives viz. WAP-7 WAP-5 are hauling trains maximum up to a speed of 130KMPH between Howrah and New Delhi. If in future any enhancement of speed of train is done, suitable loco will be provided by Railway Board to required loco sheds.

Even WAP-5 can haul 24 coach trains. Prayag Raj has been regularly been hauled by a P-5. The only visible difference is that acceleration would be slower.
