The national flag will be displayed prominently in all diesel locomotives hauling passenger and freight trains operating across the country.
This follows a recent directive from the Railway Board, New Delhi, to all Zonal Railways across the country. The Railway Board in a written communication to the 16 Zonal Railways directed that the national flag should be displayed on all diesel locomotives as per the dimensions specified by it.
The board also asked the Zonal Railways to ensure proper upkeep of the national flag displayed on the diesel locomotives. The Southern Railway commenced
the exercise of displaying the national flag on its diesel locomotives.
Stickers of the national flag are being pasted on the diesel locomotives at the Tiruchi Diesel Loco Shed – one of the four major sheds in the Southern Railway zone housing diesel locos of different types.
Stickers of the tricolour have been pasted on both ends of the diesel locomotives housed at the sprawling Tiruchi shed. Railway officials told The Hindu that national flag stickers purchased from the trade had been pasted on three diesel locos till now.
The exercise would continue and the national flag stickers would be pasted on all diesel locomotives in the due course, including diesel power cars maintained, at the Tiruchi shed.
The Tiruchi Diesel Loco Shed — a premier establishment in Southern Railway zone — alone maintains a fleet of 45 high horsepower ‘EMD” type diesel locos; 51 ‘Alco’ type diesel locos, 37 diesel power cars hauling DEMU trains; five shunting locomotives and five metre gauge locomotives.
The other diesel loco sheds in the Southern Railway zone are situated at Erode, Ernakulam and Tondiarpet in Chennai.
The Tiruchi shed is the only one in the Southern Railway zone to maintain the highest fleet of high horsepower EMD type locomotives which can chug at a maximum speed of 140 kilometres per hour. The diesel locomotives come to the shed for periodic attention and scheduled examination before being sent back for operation once again.
