The YP was the Standard Passenger Locomotive of the Indian Railways and about 870 of these were built between 1952-72. The TELCO plant alone manufactured about 550 of these machines alone. These remarkable 4-6-2 locomotive with barframes and high pitched boilers provided outstanding service and were a common sight on the meter gauge routes. On the Northern system alone about 100 plus locos were working in the mid 1970s. These Locomotives were also built by Krauss Maffei AG, North British and Baldwin Locomotive Works. The First such Engines were inducted on Northern Railways in 1955-56 and were built by Krauss Maffei.
