This was genuine, as when I gave PXR as ans I saw this "Almost all train Halts(EMU,Pass,Exp) Except One or Two Trains". Then I replied KPA.

Railway can run a regular weekly suferfast train between ANVT LGL Via MGS DHN ASN BWN BDC KPA RHA BPC using the stable rake of this train. The train will get a very high patronage as still this highly populated section lacking of direct connectivity with national capital.

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?

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!

Kanchrapara rail coach factory gets new life...

has not been shelved. The white paper submitted in Parliament by railway minister Suresh Prabhu on February 26 lists it as one of the projects identified for domestic or foreign direct investment in the railways. The ministry of railways has also revised the cost from Rs 1,000 crore to Rs 1,200 crore.
.
The ministry wants both factories to be built on Build Operate Transfer (BOT)Build Operate Own (BOO)Joint Venture (JV) or Annuity basis. The Kanchrapara factory will have to build 500 EMUMEMU coaches every year and the contract will be awarded to the party that offers the lowest price per EMUMEMU.
.
“The conventional EMU rakes in the Mumbai suburban network are being replaced with new ones that have regenerative brakes. These EMUs adopt a three-phase technology with Insulated Gate Bi-polar Transistor (IGBT)based system capable of regenerating 25-30% of the energy utilized. The trains draw power from an overhead source and regenerate ener gy while braking. The system converts this back to electrical energy , thus reducing consumption,“ an railway board officer said.
.
With the railways requiring more such IGBT rakes, the need for a production unit has gone up. The facility may also come in handy for the railways' plans to run long-distance trains at 160-200km per hour along existing routes by using imported train sets.
.
“The train sets will have about 21 AC coaches each with comfortable interiors. As all coaches will have traction, these trains will have greater acceleration and draw less energy . The travel time between two cities will come down significantly . The railways plans to import a few train sets and then start manufacturing them in India. If the factory at Kanchrapara becomes a reality , this facility may be utilized later for manufacture of train sets. Many of these will be required as the plan is to use them for all Rajdhanis and Shatabdis,“ the officer said.
