Kalyan Electric Loco Shed
Prakash Tendulkar


I visited Kalyan Electric Loco Shed first in March 2001 and later in February 2005. It is one of the most important Electric Loco shed in India as it manages two major railway arteries in the financial capital of India, Mumbai.

I was impressed by the dynamic atmosphere and teams of dedicated and technically superior employees during these visits.
