GZB WAP5 visits the Garden City with the Shatabdi Express from Chennai. Here it is seen shattering the early morning silence, as it heads out of Bangalore. Also spotted was a bonus clip; a crossing of KJM twins and ED triplets

I guess the staff at SBC trip shed must have received training to maintain WAP5 locomotives after these visits. So, P5 can visit SBC whenever it comes to MAS from GZB/BRC :)

Haulage capacities w.r.t. different gradients and speeds have been mentioned (without acceleration reserve).
Very useful for determining balancing speed of the loco on various gradients.
For loads, consider 1 ICF coach = 55 tons.
Net load of 24 ICF coaches = 55x24 = 1320 tons.
load of the rake = loco weight + net load = 78 tons (for WAP5 only) + 1320 tons =1398 tons.
Now, it'll be easy for you to find out.
Example : on a 1:100 up gradient, a WAP5 loco can haul 1460 tons at 70 km/h and 1325 tons at 80 km/h. This means the loco's balancing speed is between 70 and 80 km/h on a 1:100 gradient (~75 km/h to be precise).
Note : These aren't exact values but close enough. Also, acceleration reserve has not been taken into consideration

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
