Indian Railways: Three-phase WAP-5 passenger electric locomotive
Indian Railways: Dynamically stable even at speeds of 200 kmph
What makes this Indian Railways WAP-5 passenger electric locomotive special is the front design, which is more aerodynamic and reduces drag at higher speeds. And the revamped suspension system would ensure that there are no undue vibrations due to air drag and the train is dynamically stable even at speeds of 200 kmph." Image Source: Twitter
