With several pictures at hand, I was wondering where to start with. Viraf had
secured photo permit for us. And my old friend, Shri Datta Phadke, Chief Loco
Inspector at MCT agreed to escort us to Carshed to zip us past the RPF jawans.
Seen here in the office near the work area, Datta Phadke (L) and Viraf (R).

Model of conventional bogie.
This rake has returned from POH and undergoing extensive checks. Caution board
at driving cab reflects the status.
During routine maintenance, ads can be removed when necessary.
Not the best picture, though. Wheel bearings are being lubricated during routine
maintenance. I saw similar activity at Kalyan loco shed, too.
