WT steam tank pulls out with a suburban train
The WT was a post-independence design. It was a powerful tank engine built by Chittaranjan Locomotive Works to haul heavy suburban passenger traffic in certain big Indian cities, which could not be handled by the smaller WM tank engines. The WT was the first steam locomotive to be designed in India, i.e., at Chittaranjan in 1958, though its design was derived from the WM. Alas, it also turned out to be the last steam locomotive to be designed in India, or indeed perhaps anywhere in the world. By the late 1950s, steam engine development around the world had ceased, though the trusty steam locomotive would survive on Indian, Chinese and other railway lines till the end of the century.
