Vizag Diesel Loco-shed flagged 300th Loco

Visakhapatnam Loco-Shed has reached the milestone by flagging of its 300th loco by Divisional Railway Manager Mukul Saran Mathur here on Friday.
Vizag’s Diesel Loco Shed is the largest loco holding loco shed in Indian Railways with different type and class of locomotives. 
The shed is continuously providing 9.48 percent more loco than the Railway Board’s target in freight service and maintaining the first position among all the loco sheds of Indian Railways. 
The shed is also providing about eight per cent above the target outage which is also the best among all the sheds of Indian Railways and maintaining the first position.
The Diesel Loco Shed is having 54 locomotives running in coaching link, including one set of prestigious Rajdhani Express, which would be introduced from February 10.
The DLS is having 203 locos equipped with the remote monitoring system. Performance of those locos can be monitored directly from DLS control room on real-time data basis.
Provision of REMMLOT is helpful for preventive as well as predictive maintenance of locomotives, thereby reduces the failure and increases the reliability of locomotives. All new Locos which are coming to shed have this new feature.
Diesel Locos are now equipped with APUs which enables the loco for optimum utilization of fuel two liters per hour by auto shutting down of the main engine if idling for above 10 minutes.
The new locos are equipped with DPCS which enables to long haul the train without formation of multiple units. It not only saves additional crew but also to clear load at a single operation.
