In Spite of Completion of Codal Life/Service Life why these 196 WAM-4s are still in Operation ?
Ans: For this Order click here
Now, as RB has initiated this Order on 19.04.2010 I won't DISAGREE to it. But, from the PRAGMATIC Viewpoint I have noticed some Loopholes in this Order which are described below:
A Line is Quoted in this Order as "Condemnation
of Electric Loco Should be done on Age-Cum-Condition Basis and not simply because they have achieved their Codal Life."
Now if we analyze the Term "Age-Cum-Condition" then it can be clearly visible that both Age and Condition are variable Factor and directly dependent to each other, so it means with increase in Age definitely Condition or Performance Standard will be decreased(Reverse Trend has yet not been Observed in this World) as because we have to consider the "Direct Impact" of Factors like Depreciation, Wear and Tear etc with the increase of age and more coverage of Route Kilometers by the Locomotive which is the root cause of falling in standard or condition of the Locomotive. Now by performing Periodic Overhaul or MTR or AOH you just change some cables, wires or Parts of Locomotive not the Whole Traction Motor or other Major Parts of Loco so that it's durability can be increased. But this Change can't NEGATE the effects of Depreciation, Wear & Tear, Route Kms covered prior to AOH or POH or MTR from the Traction Motor or other main parts of the Locomotive. That's why the term "Codal Life" is used for Locomotive which means after completion of a certain period(In years) it is MANDATORY to Condemn the Locomotive as because at that time it completes it's calculated total Route kms for which it is made, if some short you can retain it but after completion of that Route kms you have to ABANDON the Loco MANDATORILY. So Condition does not be a Parameter for a Loco which has completed it's Codal Life and hence the following Line of the ORDER in question is completely irrelevant here:
"It is desired that Chief Electrical Engineers should personally take care to ensure that only those Locos, where Condition does not permit their continuance in Traffic Service, are considered for Condemnation".
This ORDER needs to be AMENDED from a more Realistic Viewpoint regarding Condemnation of Over Aged Locomotive
Order is attached for reference.
(I have Just explain the Terms " Age-Cum-Condition" and "Codal Life" used in this ORDER from a Pragmatic and Logical Point of View).
Views are welcome.

Trains will be LHB fied by IR phase wise in future.
Plan to replace conventional railway coaches with LHB ones on slow track
Sunday, 4 May 2014 - 8:47pm IST | Place: New Delhi | Agency: PTI
Railways' plan to replace conventional coaches with LHB coaches for their enhanced capacity to absorb derailment impact is on slow track despite the urgent need for it.
Coaches of the ill-fated Diwa-Sawantwadi passenger train, derailed between Nagothane and Roha railway stations, about 120 kms from Mumbai today, killing 17 passengers, were conventional coaches, which are prone to capsize in case of derailment.
The LHB coaches, equipped with advanced couplers and anti-climbing features, prevent capsizing of coaches in case of accident. This helps to minimise damage and reduce the loss of lives because the LHB bogies do not get toppled due to its modern design. While two coaches derailed, two coaches were capsized after the derailment of the passenger train today and maximum casualty occured in capsized caoches, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
However, the official said railways is planning to switch over from indigenous coaches to German technology-based Linke Holfmann Bush (LHB) ones in all trains in phases only. Currently, railways manufacture about 600 LHB coaches in Rail Coach factory in Kapurthala and Rae Bareli per year while about 3,000 conventional coaches are being produce at Integrated Coach Factory in Chennai. LHB coaches, made of stainless steel, have more in-built safety features and can absorb shock and impact of derailment more effectively.
According to the official, there is also a need to equip drivers and guards with battery operated cutting tools to speed up evacuation of passengers from capsized coaches. Battery-operated cutting tools can be made available to driver and guard for cutting windows of capsized coaches for evacuating trapped passengers before the arrival of accident relief train (ART). "One has to wait for the accident relief train to reach the site before starting the evacuation process. The battery operated cutting tools can be used in emergency to cut windows of the capsized coaches to extricate passengers in emergency instead of waiting for the ART," the official said.
