Photos of the Day: On Republic Day, 26 January 1980, we took the Howrah (Calcutta) Rajdhani Express from Delhi overnight to Howrah. Here are the Rajdhani awaiting departure from Delhi behind one of the few EMDs that we saw in India, WDM4 18001, as well as a Krauss-Maffei diesel-hydraulic class WDS4A shunter moving the consist of another train.

MGS was supposed to have 2 sheds, MGS/ER (which kept ALCo s) & MGS/NR (which kept the EMD WDM4s) . Probably IR didn't get TOT for the EMDs, hence foreign staffs maintained them

Yes, MGS had an NR-owned diesel loco shed exclusively for WDM4 locos. The shed was shutdown sometime around 2000.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake.

You may add ANY PNR to your bookmarks through the "Add Bookmark" link in the...
