I visited KJM third time in February 2012. I was more interested in WDG4 /
WDP4 problems than anything else, especially Siemens TMs that had problems in
Mumbai EMU, too. I was not disappointed. So here is a photo essay without much
of text or comments.
This is one cylinder mini engine built using Alco cylinder to train new comers.
A very brilliant idea.
Load testing in old fashioned way.
Logo - It is a monument for Silver Jubilee celebrations of KJM. It was designed
by Technicians in KJM.
Microprocessors in WDM3
Dynamic brake grids
Defective WDP4A TMs by Siemens. I could count several dozens of them. As of
December 2012, the count is 68 TMs at KJM alone.
But the problem is....they are out of their warranty.
KJM has started converting 4-motors WDP4 into
6-motors WDP4B. 20054 and 20062 have been converted to 6-motors version with
necessary changes in software. (As of December 2012)
Doppler Radar card testing
Very smart SSE, Eldo V. I bestow this honor rarely as I myself am a technical
person. The last time, I bestowed this honor to an individual was, Shri Chanbasu Sawakar, AME at UBL who
was a promotee.
