Mariani Diesel Locomotive Shed

NFR's upcoming 2nd Fully-fledged State of Art Dedicated EMD Locomotive Shed. With an aim to further upgrade the maintenance of diesel locomotives in the North Eastern region and to ease the pressure faced by the New Guwahati Diesel Locomotive Shed, the Indian Railways is now coming up with two more such sheds in Assam, which will be located at Mariani. A diesel locomotive shed is being constructed after being removed out of Railway Quarters and used to handle 50 EMD WDP4Ds & WDG4Ds Dual Cab locomotives, which have a range of 4,500 horsepower. There will be around 500 personnel, including engineers and artisans, in both the upcoming sheds. Afterwards, Tinsukia Division will have its own locomotive shed, as presently it has trip sheds. After that, Northeast Frontier Railway will get its 4th locomotive shed, the 2nd Locomotive Shed in Assam after the New Guwahati Shed, to ease pressure on Malda Town Locomotive Shed, Siliguri Locomotive Shed & New Guwahati Locomotive Shed. Expected Completion & Commission: March 2018.
