            GENERAL 

  1. Electric Loco Shed, Jhansi designed for holding of 100 locos was established in 1987 with an initial holding of 17 locos.  Present holding of the shed is 207 locomotives viz. 90 WAG/7 (45 BHEL & 45 CLW make) and 117 WAG/5 (74 BHEL & 43 CLW make). The newly received WAG-7 locomotives from BHEL and CLW are having some special features i.e. Crew Friendly Cab with FRP  Driver Desk and Air conditioning, VCD & Stick type Master Controller.

ELS/JHS is the first shed in Indian Railways to acquire three prestigious International Standards viz., ISO-14001:2004, OHSAS-18001 & ISO-9001:2008 together.
