Useful info.
WDG 4 is WDG4D isn't it?
No WDG 5s? Some problem? So onto WDG 6......

WAP 5 30? No problems as discussed by many in main forum? Any allocation to South?
E-Loco production needs to be stepped up. There was talk of starting production in Varanasi, but just talk............

Yes, WDG4 is WDG4D.
Either it is a typo, or WDG5 was just an experimental version of the WDG6. A 6000HP EMD was proposed more than a decade ago, and IR opted for a complete in-house development using the 16 cylinder engine from GM-EMD. The WDG5 corresponds to everything mentioned in the initial proposals (only the engine power is off) and by design at least, should be the best freight loco in the country . May be they figured out a way to extract more from the power-pack and are upgrading it to G6. ( Hope it wasn't a typo !!)

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@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,...
