The God Father and as well the Gem of WCR!! Biggest Surprise Ever!! Tughlakabad WAM-4 6P Chocolate 21383 With 57625 Secunderabad to Manugur Kakatiya Fast Passenger!! When I entered the station I could see the loco!! I thought Probably it might be an WAG-5 of Vijayawada! cause they come frequently then the Trademark of TKD was visible i was oh maybe it's WAG-5 of TKD when i looked at it again wow!! WAM-4's are usually rare in HYB region that too this is from TKD!! Although the appearance seems a bit old!! I guess the performance is same as before!! Feeling happy and sad as well! cause maybe in future we may or may not get to see them!! This loco has Completed 35.5 years of service _/\_!! I waited for the whole day to see which train will be hauled! wishing that they shouldn't scrap it!!...
I have few doubts!! I wish to get them clarified!
1. What's the maximum service time for a Loco?
2. Why do they scrap them? is it due to the aging of machinery? instead of scrapping why can't they overhaul or use them atleast for short distance passengers or as shunting?

For FMs, we require members to promise to abide by the guidelines and be free of controversies. For other Monitors, we require the member to be in good standing. . However, "eligibility" does NOT always mean...

    @all: While we do nominally allow multiple IDs, these multiple IDs are NOT allowed to engage in misuse and "mischief". Voting multiple times in the same poll using multiple IDs, rating each other IDs' blogs using multiple IDs, etc. are classified as "gross misuse". . This is an advance notice that some of the...

A PUBLIC info website is unlike WhatsApp, FaceBook, Instagram, etc. where people post personal pics and other stuff, which CAN...
