Diesel Loco Shed, Vijayawada was established in the year 1979 at the cost of about Rs.170 lakhs to maintain 20 WDS4locomotives and increased to 35 in the year 1989. Progressively these locomotives were withdrawn as WDM2 de-rated locomotives were used for shunting purposes. Meanwhile 02 locos in the year 2000 and 15 in the year 2004 have been transferred to Western Railway. Again 02 locos of Diesel Loco Shed, Moula-ali were transferred to this shed in the year 2004 leaving the effective holding of WDS4 locomotives at BZA to 20.In the year 2006, 13 locomotives have been condemned and auctioned and 02 locomotives were transferred to Shakurbasthi Shed, Northern Railway. Presently 05 WDS4locomotives are under premature condemnation. Railway Board had sanctioned vide letter No.M.66/DSL/COND.underaged/ 120/Dec.06 dt.24.02.10.

With the reduction of WDS4 locomotives and increase in Electric traction in BZA Division, DEMU services started in Vijayawada from the year 1996 with 5 consists placed under Diesel Loco Shed, Vijayawada to ease severe traffic constraints both in passenger/express services and also in suburban traffic. Presently the total holding of DEMUs is 31 DPCs, 13 DTCs and 54 TCs and is working in BZA, GNT, GTL and SC divisions.

In the year 2002 apart from DEMUs and WDS4locomotives, 15 WDP1 locomotives were transferred from Diesel Loco Shed, Kazipet to this shed which are working in Mail/Express/Passenger services in BZA, GNT and GTL divisions. During the month of October 2008, 02 more WDP1 locomotives were transferred from Diesel Loco Shed, Tuglakhabad, Northern Railway and put in BZA loco links from 01.11.08 & 09.11.08.

In March 2007, 2 RAIL BUSES were received from NED division to run between COA-KLPH section of BZA division.

In addition to these locos, 12 WDM2 over aged locomotives were transferred from DLS/KZJ, DLS/GTL for utilizing in Coaching shunting, Yard Shunting, and BT etc. over BZA & GNT division with effect from 01.12.2009 and also 04 WDM2 over aged locomotives were transferred from DLS/GTL with effect from 01.02.10.
