ØElectric Loco Shed, Jhansi originally designed for holding of 100 locos was established in 1987 with an initial holding of 17 locos.

ØPresent holding of the shed is 230 (+1 loco under condemnation) locomotives viz. 38 WAP-4 (CLW Make), 76 WAG-7 (34 BHEL & 42 CLW make) and 116 WAG-5 (75 BHEL & 42 CLW make). (01 WAG-5/BHEL type locomotive is under condemnation due to major damage).

ØThe newly received WAG-7 locomotives from BHEL and CLW are having some special features i.e. Crew Friendly Cab with FRP Driver Desk and cab air conditioning, VCD & Stick type Master Controller.   

ØELS/JHS is first shed in Indian Railway to have successfully upgraded a conventional WAG-7 (24517) loco to Regenerative braking. This was done by joint effort of ELS/JHS and BHEL after doing hardware and software modifications, rigorous field trials have been done before inducting locomotive in fleet of Indian Railway.

   This is an important step towards saving of energy and makes conventional electric locomotives more energy efficient. Thus playing actual role in nation building towards a sustainable development. 

ØELS/JHS is the first shed in Indian Railways to acquire three prestigious International Standards viz.,ISO-14001:2015,OHSAS-18001:2007 & ISO-9001:2015 together in the year 2005 and continuously renewed till current year.

ØRecord Goods Net Loco Outage : On 28.10.19 ELS/JHS has achieved record Goods Net Loco Outage of 203.3 (+35.6 Locos i.e. +21.23% above the set target of 167.7 locos). It is highest ever achieved in the history of shed breaking previous record of 200.5 locos in term of number of locomotives.

Average Availability (Outage) of shed in the last year 2020-21 is found +16.82 i.e 10.62 %.

ØAverage availability (Outage) of shed in the current year 2021-22 up to June’ 2021 it is again (+15.91) well above the target i.e 11.5%.

ØHighest recorded CUF% of 19.5% was achieved on date 23.02.21. During the month of Feb-21 (from 01.02.21 to 24.02.21) 16.5% average CUF% of solar power plant at ELS/JHS. It is highest in JHS division.This could be possible by daily maintenance and regular cleaning activities of solar panels.


Normally more than 50 multiple units (WAG-5 locos) are normally working  on line.


All 216 No. locos are equipped with VCD.


Total 111 locos are fitted with Micro Processor Based with Fault Diagnostic system.


          Total 91 Nos. locos are fitted with Static Converter.

ØHigh Reach Pantograph

Total 10 Locos are provided with High Reach Panto graph.


08 Locos are provided with RTIS (Real Time train information System.


ØDevelopment of HV testing facility to arrest the failure of VCB insulator bursting on line.

ØLeakage current analyzer for gapless lightening arrestor:- For preventive maintenance & conditional monitoring of gapless lightening arrester (GPLA), a leakage current analyzer (LCA)  has been procured and commissioned at ELS/JHS in month of JAN’21. It displays total leakage current flowing through surge arrestor. LCA can be used to track the deterioration in performance of the surge arrestor, thereby allow to take necessary preventive measure in avoiding failure

ØJig developed to fit the bearing on rotor shaft so that uniform pressure on inner & outer racer of bearing is ensured.

ØFixture has been developed in house by shed for assembly and dis-assembly of brake cylinder. This has reduced the efforts in doing overhauling work.
