Another 1993 Flickr Photo by Mr. Brutzer : of a MGS WDM - 4 Diesel Loco at Saharanpur Jn (SRE) Sidings . These WDM - 4s were designed by EMD , Hyderababad and were supplied to IR by them without giving IR a Transfer of Technology Facility . As a result of this , IR's DLW , Varanasi (Then Benaras) could not design these locos . Mughalsarai Diesel Loco Shed used to home these maroon beauties (And one of them was decked up like a bride in front of HWH Raj Exp in the inaugural scene of Super Exp Train in the 1980 Hindi Blockbuster Film "The Burning Train") . This loco was the King of the MGS -
SRE Route via BSB - SLN - LKO - BE - MB . In these last days of late 1990s , these locos were assigned duties of hauling Freight Trains under Northern Railways . Today , one of them are plinthed in the National Railway Museum , New Delhi and the others have been scrapped in rail scrap yards near Lucknow by 2004 . Thanks .
