While, Gooty Diesel Loco Shed secures 2nd place

The two Loco sheds of South Central Railway have attained National Level recognition by securing 1st& 2nd places for their best performance in terms of homing electric Locos and for having least failures in the year. The details of the Loco sheds which have been adjudged as best across Indian Railways are-

1.Kazipet Diesel Loco Shed stands in the 1stposition in terms of homing electric Locos

2.Gooty Diesel Loco Shed stands in the 2ndposition in terms of homing electric Locos

Indian Railways is moving ahead with electrification of its entire rail network and has completed nearly 95%, the balance portion being completed within short span of time. The train services which are hitherto being operated with diesel traction are being taken over to run with electric traction in a phased manner. In south Central Railway also, 94% of its network has already been electrified and works in the balance portion are in fast pace. As the trains operated with electric traction are increasing day by day there comes the necessity of augmenting maintenance facilities for electric Locos.


In this direction, Diesel Loco Sheds of SCR have been upgraded with necessary infrastructure for maintaining electric Locos. At present, 373 electric locomotives are being maintained at five Diesel Loco Sheds of SCR. Kazipet Diesel Loco Shed is homing 113 WAG-7 electric Locos while Gooty Diesel Loco shed is homing 90 WAG-9 electric Locos. The maintenance of electric Locos in these Diesel Loco sheds has gained national recognition for best practices and have been chosen for awarding cash prizes.


Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager, SCR congratulated Kazipet and Gooty Diesel Loco Sheds Officers & staff for this special recognition. He lauded the best maintenance practices being followed by the workforce of these sheds and stated that they have set an example for others in delivering best output from the Loco Sheds.
