HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE-POH of BOX/BOX'N' Wagons
Steam locomotive came to an end in August 1992 when the last WP locomotive “Sandhya” was POHed. Wagon repair was undertaken in its place in the Erecting Shop simultaneously. Wagon POH started with a modest figure of less than 100 VUs/month. It crossed landmark of 300 per month in 2004-05 on a sustained basis and in 2011-12 even went up to 450 VUs in a month placing it amongst the top five Wagon Repair Workshop of Indian Railways.
Jamalpur is also fairly well located to undertake this workload as it is close to the coal loading belt where the bulk of BOX/BOX(N) Wagons are examined and isoloated for repairs.
