  1. They need to move the defective axles AWAY from the good ones. Someone is going to install a bad one into an active train!

    • Thats not how it works my man. This is a Bipolar world and i guess every country imports one thing or the other from around the globe. So don’t be a Russophobe, for heavens sake.

  2. I was surprisd to see the Repair depot. Spic & span.Either trains are manufatured
    so perfectly none come for repairs.or the workers on strike.At that time the fotos were taken.
    I think it should be the former. Congrats =JMOHAN
