WORKSHOPS

There are 2 workshops on N.E. Railway i.e. Gorakhpur (BG only)


and Izatnagar (MG stock only)

1. Gorakhpur Workshop

Gorakhpur workshop was established in 1903 for


undertaking POH of MG locos, coaches and wagons. To
cater for increased POH requirement on account of
increase in traffic, remodelling and expansion of the
workshop was undertaken in 1958.

As BG conversion started on N.E. Railway, Gorakhpur


workshop started POH of BG coaches in September 1984.
For rationalisation of work load between the two
workshops of N.E. Railway, POH of MG wagons in
Gorakhpur workshop was stopped in February 1986 and
MG coaches in January 2001. In between, on account of
phasing out of steam locomotive, POH of locos in
Gorakhpur shop was stopped in 1993-94.
Considering the necessity for increasing BG coach POH
capacity in Gorakhpur workshop, Railway Board
sanctioned two works costing Rs.41crores for increasing
POH capacity from 75 to 175 coaches per month. Both
these works are under implementation and the workshop
is currently giving POH outturn of 170 coaches per month
including 15 AC coaches.

2. Izatnagar Workshop

Izatnagar workshop was established in the year 1913 for


repair and maintenance of MG steam locos. POH of MG
coaches and wagons was started in 1923. To improve the
infrastructure for meeting the POH arising of reorganised
North Eastern Railway, remodelling of the workshop was
done during 1955-60 at a cost of Rs.1.86 Crore.

The workshop has undertaken manufacture of MG steam


cranes and MG diesel cranes also. MG steam loco POH was
phased out from this workshop in 1985. After isolation of
MG network of N.E. Railway from Southern and Western
Railway, on account of gauge conversion, POH of MG diesel
locos was started in this workshop in August 1998. POH of
MG AC coaches was also started by the workshop from
September 2001 when MG activity was closed at
Gorakhpur. POH of MG Rail Bus and 35 Ton MG steam
crane was started in April 2001 and February 2004
respectively. Recently Railway Board has given sanction for
developing POH facilities of 50 numbers of BG coaches
under the works programme for 2007-08 .
