Newly manufactured ICF rake # 301 at Kandivali car shed. WR has assigned them to
3xx series, one that was assigned to the first batch of ICF stock in early 60s.
Although these are AC/DC EMUs, they have (or
had) electronics from another company that has now become a part of Alstom.
During my visit, Alstom engineers were rectifying "teething problems"
on the rake electronics.

handle. This picture was taken in m/coach driving cab.
