I. PROCEDURE OF SECURING DIESEL LOCO IN ‘IDLE’ AND ‘DEAD’ CONDITION.

1. Apply SA9, i.e., loco brake. Ensure brake cylinder pressure 3.5 kg/cm2 in ALCO loco’s and 5.2
kg/cm2 in HHP loco’s
2. Ensure Throttle handle in ‘IDLE’ position and GF switches in ‘OFF’ position.
3. ECS in ‘IDLE’ position in ALCO loco’s and Isolation switch in ‘ ISOLATE’ position in HHP loco’s
4. Ensure Selector handle in ‘OFF’ position.
5. Ensure Reverser in ‘NEUTRAL’ position and keep the handle in personal custody.
6. Ensure hand brakes of the loco in ‘APPLIED’ position.
7. Ensure the skids/wedges are placed under the wheels on both sides of the loco in tight

1. Shut down the loco as per procedure.
2. ‘OPEN’ the battery knife switch and enter date and time of shut down in the log-book.
II. CAB changing Procedure in MU (ALCO) Locos :

 Secure the locos with hand brakes and wooden wedges.

Setp 1: Changes to be done in Leading loco
