BHEL 301C.jpg (58350 bytes)  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.
