A not so small Battery is there inside loco to provide power in case of emergency (in cab light, flasher in case of loco breakdown) and to provide power to a small compressor called as 'baby compressor'. This baby compressor builds up the requisite pressure required to raise the panto (6 kg/cm^2). Once the contact is made and there is no issue with line (no flashing etc) then the VCB is opened and the next steps to energize the loco may begin.
Battery rating: 110 v, 199 Ah (Ni-Cd, unlike the Li-ion or what is more commonly and wrongly called as Li-Po battery used in our mobiles)

Yes, they are run on batteries. Each loco has 2 battery boxes slung under the loco beside the main transformer and the compressor. I highlighted them in the attached pic.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far.
