---------------------- Driver's Manual for WAG-9/9H Locomotives -------------------------
In this Blog I am Presenting the "Driver's Manual for WAG-9/9H Locomotives" published by Chittaranjan Locomotive Works. It is a fact that in "Freight Transportation" sector of Indian Railways WAG-9 is now a Common and Powerful name(More than 500+ Locomotives already) and in future this Locomotive would be the Mainstay of Freight Transportation of IR. So to meet up the necessity of Future I share this blog now.
This Blog is dedicated to the people whose names are listed below:
All respected members and Admin Sirs of IRI.
2 Any member who works in IR and a Member of our IRI Family
3 Any Electric Loco Pilot who is the Member of our IRI Family
4 All New Members who are now the Part of our IRI Family and may be "Successful Contributors" of Future IRI.
For Category 1 and 4 this Document can help immensely to have a "Complete Idea" about the "Entire Architecture" about WAG-9 Locomotives.(Except the Technical Terms)
For Category 2 and 3 this Document will help immensely to understand what are the Specifications and criteria required for being the "Loco Pilot" of a WAG-9/9H Locomotive.
First I want to discuss about the term "Sand Box" relating to WAG-9/9H Locomotives and also WAP-7 & WAP-5 Locomotives.
What is Sand Box?
Ans: A sandbox is a container on most locomotives, multiple units and trams that holds sand, which is dropped on the rail in front of the driving wheels in wet and slippery conditions and on steep grades in order to improve Rail Adhesion.
For more details regarding Sand Box please refer: click here
Now please refer the following Link to download and access the 206 Page PDF Document "Driver's Manual for WAG-9/9H Locomotives"

I also attach this Driver's Manual with this blog for your "Ready Reference".
