  • The project of establishing the Diesel Loco Shed at Krishnarajapuram was commenced during April 1980 with an outlay of Rs. 6.65 Crores for creating infrastructural facilities to hold 60 locomotives. With the available basic facilities, activities of maintenance of BG Diesel Locomotives was commenced during 1983 with 9 locomotives holding..

  • The covered facilities to the extent of 8810 Sqm was provided in a total area of 98540 sqm wherein all the basic facilities required for maintaining 60 locos were ensured. The entire project was completed during 1990.

  • During the year 97-98 for meeting the requirement of maintenance of additional holding of another 5 locos (65 locos), the covered area was further expanded in the light repair bay to the extent of 180 Sqm (15m x 12m) at a cost of Rs.37.35 lakhs, which include certain other vital M&Ps.
