Should DLW reduce the production of DLOCO ? If yes, then reduce to how many ?
Note- electrification work speeded up.
Reduce to 300 locos per year
Reduce to 250 locos per year
Reduce to 200 locos per year
Reduce to 150 locos per year
Reduce to 100 locos per year
Reduce to 75 locos per year
Reduce to 50 locos per year
As of now, ER and SECR are expected to get WAP5 next, after NR and WR.
Yes, WDG4 is WDG4D.
Either it is a typo, or WDG5 was just an experimental version of the WDG6. A 6000HP EMD was proposed more than a decade ago, and IR opted for a complete in-house development using the 16 cylinder engine from GM-EMD. The WDG5 corresponds to everything mentioned in the initial proposals (only the engine power is off) and by design at least, should be the best freight loco in the country . May be they figured out a way to extract more from the power-pack and are upgrading it to G6. ( Hope it wasn't a typo !!)
Thanks. "only the engine power is off"?
Already production stopped 🙂
