Electric routes and locos dekhne me bahut achhe lagte h.
Hmm, I am not talking about efficiency.
I am saying "Railways, the single largest bulk consumer of diesel in the country, requires about 2.5 billion liters of diesel a year and have to foot a bill of about Rs 17,000 cr. " -- Little old calculation
Government encouraging public to go for Electric but at the same time if one of their departments becoming bulk consumer of fossil fuel may not look good.
Even the buses consumes 5 ltrs per km but emds do it 4 ltrs with which is 25 times greater weight of buses
Agree, doubling is more important for single saturated lines.
