Mumbai: Western Railway is planning to install diesel locomotives from the Bandra carshed that are no longer in use along suburban stations in an attempt to beautify the surroundings & preserve the Railways’ heritage.

More Information:

  • Western Railway has 7 WDS4 series diesel engines in the Bandra carshed.
  • Another senior official of WR said,“These rakes are from 1960-70 and not in use anymore. They are just lying at the workshop. We are trying to make the locomotives attractive before displaying them at railway stations.”
  • Besides these, there are 2 steam engines at Mumbai Central & Churchgate.
  • Of the total 7 locomotives, 5 will be placed, in the first phase, at Nalasopara, Navsari, Khandpara, Amalner & Bandra Terminus.
  • It took nearly a year for WR to decide the stations.
  • Jain said,“We needed railway stations that had the space for this, and accordingly shortlisted the 5 stations. This will also make the stations look beautiful.”
  • The locos will be restored & modified to make them attractive, as well as give them a heritage look.
  • Machinery that are not required for such a loco will be removed; the exterior will match the original look, & pedestals will be built.
  • Work on the painting & pedestals will start soon after the monsoon, & the engines will be kept at railway stations by the end of the year.
