Which of the following stations do you think that IR needs to start changing D-locos to E-locos?
These don't have ELS or ETS; but surely to save diesel and other benefits, IR can work out LSA such that E-Locos can return to respective ELS/ETS for periodic checks and maintenance.

Guess IR does not let loco changing to be carried out at PNVL because of EMU rush
But all these days when I travelled on that route I saw that Konkan trains used to stop for a long time and luggage/parcels were offloaded/loaded too. I thought there was problem between CR and WR on loco sharing so they let the SR's D-Locos to continue till BRC or ADI without any change.

EMU rush ka koi sawal nahi hai filhal jo long trains aa ja rahi hai panvel se wo route sirf long distance trains ka hi hai Emu k liye alag Do line hai aur Panvel EMU terminal alag hai Aur Long distance trains ke PF alag hai
Maybe because of LSA non-agreement between CR and WR.
For a long time no loco changes were made because of the DC-traction on the CR/WR tracks. The respective zones did not want to have 2 loco changes ( one at PNVL and one at BRC ). Even later on, when the DC-AC conversion work was going on, with the WR route having been converted to AC and the CR portion still on DC, , again it would have required two loco changes ( one change to WCAM at PNVL and another change to WAP at BRC).
Moreover, all trains going towards BRC from PNVL were only weeklies and bi-weeklies ( TVC raj has the highest frequency at tri-weekly). So overall CR didn't feel that it was worth...
