India's Most Powerful Locomotive | Alstom WAG-12B (12000HP) click here
The Indian locomotive class WAG-12 is a class of 25 kV AC electric locomotives that was developed in 2017 by Alstom for the Indian Railways. The model name stands for broad gauge (W), AC Current (A), Goods traffic (G) locomotive , 12th generation (12). They entered trial service in 2019. A total of 800 WAG-12B are to be built at electric locomotive factory Madhepura, Bihar, India.

With a power output of 12,000 HP, they are twice as powerful as its immediate predecessor, WAG-9, and is one of the most powerful freight locomotives in the world. The locomotive is being developed for deployment on the Dedicated Freight Corridors, where it will be used to haul freight trains weighing more than 6,000 tonnes (5,900 long tons; 6,600 short tons) at speeds of 100 km/h (62 mph) to 120 km/h (75 mph), essentially doubling the average speed of freight trains in the sector.
Seen in the video is Saharanpur (SRE) WAG-12B 60030 hauling a container freight through Palam (Delhi NCT).
