Electric Loco Shed(ELS), Visakhapatnam, has paired two electrical locos, WAP-4-model locos, by performing key modifications and made them ready for goods train operations.
ELS has successfully modified two WAP-4 model locos, which are being operated for passenger trains, to work in multiple unit operation for hauling goods train operations. As these coaching train locos’ utilisation has reduced due to COVID-19 pandemic, team ELS took the initiative to use these locos for effective utilisation by performing key modifications. These class of locos are originally designed to work in single unit operation for hauling coaching rakes, according to A.K. Tripathi, Senior Divisional Commercial Manager.
