Here a MacArthur American War Department meter gauge 2-8-2 loco puffing smoke hooks up a goods train and sets out of Bombay yard.
MAWD's were a common sight on the meter gauge lines of the Southern Railway
Here a T class builds a goods train shunting between three tracks using a three way switch (point) [ one tracks switches to three), it attaches various freight wagons. Note the movements of the points as it switches tracks.
WDM3D shunting on my layout. It passes a stopped train and then backs up on the same track as stopped train.
Here a WCM1 is pulling a passenger train up the steep grade and a WDM2 is hauling a goods train down grade. the advantage of DCC you can rum multiple trains at the same time.
Dual cab WDG-4P dual cab startup and then shutdown.
Here are the startup a small whistle and the shutdown sequence of the WCM 1 electric loco
I have a number of locomotives which have unique cold startup and shutdown sequences, specific to the prototype they represent. Here is WDG4D startup a small whistle and then shutdown.
WDG-4P Dual cab diesel, with a cold start and hard shutdown sequences hauling a freight train. Loco does a cold start and then positions to haul a goods train from a siding and then does a hard shutdown at the Bombay Yard.
The WCM1 class were the first mainline mixed electric locomotives in India of any type/traction. They were imported fully built by English Electric/Vulcan Foundry, UK in 1954. 3700 HP
Here is a unique GE U50 locomotive eight-axle engine with a B+B-B+B. wheel arrangement unusual. The loco generated 5000 HP (two 2500 HP engines) and was 83 ft 6.5 in (25.46 m), A heavy freight locomotive these were the only cab forward locomotive in USA. I will post a video of it soon operating a freight train.
Bhawani Mandi Railway station is unique, it straddles two states, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, very unique.
