The Project Report On Carriage And Wagon Workshop Dahod Carriage and Wagon Workshop Dahod is starts with detailed history of Dahod. The report explains about the purpose of selecting Dahod as carriage and wagon workshop and also given the construction details of workshop.
Originally, the workshop at Lower Parel (Bombay) was catering to the requirement of POH of locomotives, passenger carriages and freight cars of then Bombay, Baroda and Central India (BB&CI) Railway. With the increase in the train services, Lower Parel workshop was not able to cope with the arising of all the three types of rolling stock. Therefore, it was decided to shift locomotive POH activity from Lower Parel to some other place.
Dahod was selected for construction of POH workshop for steam locomotive fleet because of its pleasant weather, availability of cheap land and sincere workforce. Dahod is also ideally situated mid-way between Bombay and Delhi, the main route of BB&CI Railway broad gauge system.
The workshop has a versatile layout enabling it to tackle any type of engineering assignment. This workshop was indeed utilized for production of armament during the Second World War from October 1941 to August 1943 suspending locomotive repair activities, steam locomotive repair activities of BB&CI Railway were entrusted to GIP Railway’s workshop at Parel (Bombay) during War.
The workshop undertakes the periodic overhauling of two main types of coaches. The first category of the coach is known as the ICF design coaches. The second category of the coach is the LHB design coaches. The workshop is headed by the Chief Workshop manager. There are five departments dealing with various activities such as Mechanical, Electrical, Materials Management, Finance & Accounts, HRD, Audit and Security.
