India to buy 200 electric locomotives from Japan

Recommended Posts

India will buy 200 electric locos from Japan.  30 will be built in Japan, the rest in India.  Apparently the bid specifies a reliability metric, one in-service breakdown per 200k kilometers.  No doubt the Japanese tech and quality is very good, but certainly reliability is a result of good maintenance, at least in part.  Will these get it?  Anyway, it will be interesting to see an EF510 in broad gauge. :)
