#railfanningatitarsi Green loco ET WDM-2G prince of wcr taking rest after shunting bhusaval - itarsi passenger the unique WDM2G is a testimony to the brilliant engineers at RDSO and Indian Railways. This is the latest ALCO, based on the WDM3D with it’s same underframe and high-adhesion bogies. The single 3300 hp engine of the WDM3D has been replaced by three 800 hp “gensets” which can work individually in parallel. This means that one, two or three of the Gensets can be operated depending on the situation and power required, translating into... more...
tremendous energy-efficiency (two engines can be shut down while running light or idling). It seems under-powered, but it has been developed intentionally as a low-powered loco to address the gap left behind by the WDM2. The WDM2G is ideal for an entire range of low-power duties like hauling small passenger trains and expresses of 10-12 coaches, departmental duties, at many industrial sites and for shunting. The WDM2G can relieve all the higher powered locos wasting away doing these duties currently, bringing about a lot of process streamlining. It is completely indigenous, designed, developed and made in India! Looks only vaguely like the Indian ALCOs and more like some American locomotives (CSX etc). Two WDM2Gs have been produced and are both at Itarsi, the numbering scheme indicates many more are to come. It does not follow the IR naming convention, the “G” probably stands for “Genset”.
Aap itarsi k liye itni sari trains ki demand kr rhe hai??..mujhe lagta hai ki ald-et electrification k bad itarsi me kam se kam 15 trains k tech/comm halt remove kiye jayenge jaise ki 1999-2000 me bhopal junction acchi tarah develop hone k bad hua tha... NOTE-late 90's tak itarsi se pass hone wali sari trains ( including rajdhani) ka tech halt itarsi hota tha
Bhai mera khena ka matlab hai.. Bhopal to rajdhani aur dusri sf trains ka comm halt hamesha hi rha hai..lekin itarsi tech halt tha kyo ki pahele jhs-bsl/ngp section ki sari trains k crew change itarsi me hi hote the...lekin jab se bhopal me crew change hone lage hai tab se itarsi k tech halt band kr diye gaye...aisa hi et-ald electrification bad hoga jo trains itarsi sirf loco change hone wajah se rukti hai unke halt remove ho jayenge
