IR Locomotive Classes

The following is a graphical representation of most of the locomotive classes on IR.
This page covers most of the existing as well as some of the redundant classes on Broad and Metre Gauge in the country. Broad Gauge Steam and Metre Gauge Steam has been restricted to the last 2 classes surviving on each. The Narrow Gauge network has not been covered.

We have shown as many locos as possible. All classes shown here are photographed by us (Siddharth Joshi & Bharat Vohra).
Some of the classes (either in service or redundant) have not yet been covered by us. The classes that have been covered by us can be viewed by clicking on the link, which in turn will spawn a smaller window showing the photographs and details of each class. To view this page you will need a javascript compatible browser.
