Video link: click here
Lalgola bound 13117 Kolkata-Lalgola Dhano Dhanye Exp departed from Naihati Jn with milky white new HOG capable Howrah WAP7 #30503.
Dhano Dhanye Exp travels a distance225 Kms to Lalgola from Kolkata(Ex-Chitpur Terminal​) with 9 halts in between viz Naihati Jn, Ranaghat Jn, Krishnanagar Jn, Bethuadahari, Plassey, Beldanga, Berhampore
Court, Murshidabad and JiaGanj taking 4 hours 50 Minutes.
Details of various thing related to it.
WAP 7 is a locomotive developed by Chittaranjan Locomotive Works by modifying the gear ratio of existing WAG 9 class. It is capable of hauling trains at speeds ranging between 110 to 140 kilometres per hour (68 to 87 mph)
With a maximum speed rating of 140 km/h (87 mph), the WAP-7 has the highest acceleration figures while hauling mail/express trains. The WAP-7 can also haul loads of 24-26 passenger coaches (1,430–1,550 t or 1,410–1,530 long tons or 1,580–1,710 short tons at 130 km/h or 81 mph). It is the most successful passenger locomotive on the Indian Railways roster after the WAP-4.
WAP-7 locomotive can deliver 6,350 hp (4,740 kW)max, with regenerative braking being one of its salient features. The regenerative braking is deployed on down gradients conserving energy to the tune of 30-35 percent. It has an inbuilt microprocessor based fault diagnostic system to make trouble shooting easier. Another feature of this locomotive is that it eliminates the need to have separate EOG sets for air-conditioning in long distance trains hence providing significant amount of savings on maintenance and running costs. This technology, called HOG or "Head On Generation", transfers electric power from the loco's pantograph to the coaches instead of "End on Generation" in which a Power Car equipped with diesel generator capable of generating adequate power of 3-phase 50 Hz 415 V / 750 V AC (called 'hotel load') is provided at either end of the train rake to supply power.
Lalgola is a town in West Bengal situated near the Bangladesh border in the sub- division of Lalbagh in the district of Murshidabad, West Bengal. It is situated about 225 kilometres (140 mi) north of Kolkata, near the head of the Ganges delta. It is a terminal railway station on the Lalgola Branch Line. It is also a border checkpoint.
Lalgola is surrounded by a number of large and small lakes, small temples and mosques. It is the site of the Lalgola Open Air Correctional Home. The Lalgola Palace had been gifted to the government by Maharaja Jogendra Narayan Ray.
Kolkata also known as Calcutta, (the official name until 2001) is the capital of the Indianstate of West Bengal. Located on the east bank of the Hooghly River, it is the principal commercial, cultural, and educational centre of East India, while the Port of Kolkata is India's oldest operating port and its sole major riverine port.
Calcutta served as the capital of British-held territories in India until 1911, when its perceived geographical disadvantages, combined with growing nationalism in Bengal, led to a shift of the capital to New Delhi. Calcutta was the centre for the Indian independence movement; it remains a hotbed of contemporary state politics. Following Indian independence in 1947, Kolkata, which was once the centre of modern Indian education, science, culture, and politics, suffered several decades of economic stagnation.
