I was just casually browsing the IR Fleet RDS site.......and under remarks section for GZB WAP-7 30243 as "Under MOH"....
I have heard of Loco POHed in Kanchrapara...........What is "MOH"????
Kindly explain....attached a screenshot of the same!
I am guessing. Need experts to confirm / comment.
POH - Periodical overhaul
MOH - Monthly Overhaul
IOH - Intermediate overhaul
AOH - Annual overhaul
Thank You Maam for clearing up my doubt....
But does this mean that NR lacks MOH provisions!
Otherwise why would an NR WAP-7 come all the way into ER territory for it's overhaul?
No idea about this..
May be some tie up about services.
Overhauls are done at select workshops across the country and are not spread zone wise. For example, Perambur ( in Chennai) handles POH for locos from all over South India and occasionally even from as far as TKD. Similarly, Bhusaval handles POH for 3 phasers and WAP4's for a lot of zones other than CR. This is not zone specific and usually the workshop to which the loco is sent is based on schedule and the workshop's capacity constraints. I think NR has a workshop at LKO to overhaul diesel locos, but as I said, locos can be sent anywhere for POH.
Thanks for the information, Sir!
I didn't know that BSL does the POH for theP-5/7,G-9...
What about Kanchrapara...It is POH centre for the eastern part of IR....but the location of the loco as per the site is at LLH!
LLH does POH for passenger rakes....since when did LLH start POHing locos!
Down Kalka-Howrah SF Mail negotiates the sharp curve to enter Howrah territory in decent speed with its customary Howrah WAP 7 #30305 in lead.. :)
This yard barricade prevents us from seeing any rakes lined up at Tikiapara Yard while any train departs from Howrah... anyways, it's a nice photo :-D
Yesterday, I spotted a very rare class loco while returning from BDC to HWH.
It was shunting some SL coaches. As our train was running at a very good speed, so couldn't capture it. :-(
Short hood & long hood are similar to YDM-4.
It was behind a wall. So, couldn't notice the road number.
Only 2 such locos are present in the whole IR territory. Both of them are of BWN shed.
18901 is withdrawn as per IRFCA loco database. So, it should be 18902

Aj subhe patri se utri Poorva Exp....No major casualty
From a Bengali news paper.
From "Anandabazar Patrika"
The link of the news is click here
sad to see such costly coaches getting damaged........
But as it is LHB so the rake will be sent to NDLS after making necessary repairs and replacement for highly damaged coaches.
Again a massive rail accident saved by LHB with 0 casualty.
LHB saved casualty last June this year in case of DBRT Raj near Chapra.
This is the second time.
It would be a horrible accident if it would be ICF as the speed of the train is quoted in the news.
Please see the news.
Patra Watra ukhaad diya ....
Shows the safety of LHB rakes. They are designed to prevent coaches from toppling over one another .
Feeling really depressed...
Turnouts seem to be failing...
Recently dayodaya with 40094 derailed near Jaipur station turnouts..
Damages to coach are minor... But major damages is done to IR reputation
yesterday i saw this train in LILUAH @ 16.07 it was running late.
The problem for the passengers (of 12023up) is that if this train arrives late it will departure late..so it will be late to reach patna..mostly at midnight..
Schedule is tight but punctuality of 12023 is very decent..
