KJM 2012
Prakash Tendulkar


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.

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)
