Diesel Shed Ludhiana came into existence on 29.09.1977. Initially, the shed wasdesigned to home 60 WDM2 locos. Later, it was expanded to home 100 WDM2 locos inthe year 1987-88. Further the total holding of shed was increased to 150 locos in the year 1993-94. Present loco holding of Diesel Shed, Ludhiana is 170 having different types of locos i.e. WDM2, WDM3A & WDG3A. Diesel Shed, Ludhiana is presently the biggest shed on the Northern Railway and the 3rd largest on Indian Railways. The total kilometers earning is approximately 22 lakh kilometers per month and the shed is running a mail link of 96 locos consisting of various prestigious Mail/Express trains. Diesel Shed, Ludhiana is also having a Diesel Training School and Hostel attached to it. The Training School consists of 5 classrooms and various working models of mechanical and electrical sub assemblies of WDM2 locos. The staying capacity in thehostel is 72 and is having 38 double-bedded rooms. This training School is being mainlyutilized for training of running staff for Diesel conversion and refresher courses of FZR & UMB division. In addition to this, this is also being utilized for imparting training tothe maintenance staff of the shed. It is also equipped with the recreation facilities &gymnasium with high-tech exercise machines, indoor games etc. Presently, Diesel Shed, LDH is ISO0-14001 Certified Shed, which is headed byunder the dynamic control of Sr.Divl. Mech.Engineer (Diesel), under whom the officers DME-I, DME-II, ADME/H, ADME/R/Mech., ADME/R/Elect, ACMT & SMM/Storesare working.

Earlyinternal combustion engine-powered locomotives used gasolineas their fuel. Soon after Dr.Rudolf Diesel patented his firstcompression ignition enginein 1892,its application for railway propulsion was considered. Progress was slow, however, due to the poor power-to-weight ratio of the early engines, as well as the difficulty inherent inmechanically applying power to multiple driving wheels on swivelling trucks (bogies). Steady improvements in the Diesel engine's design (many developed by Sulzer Ltd.of Switzerland, with whom Dr. Diesel was associated for a time) gradually reducedits physical size and improved its power-to-weight ratio to a point where one could bemounted in a locomotive. Once the concept of Diesel-electricdrive was accepted the pace of development quickened. By the mid 20th century the Diesel locomotive had become the dominant type of locomotive in much of the world, offering greater flexibility and performance than thesteam locomotive, as well as substantially lower operating and maintenance costs. Currently, almost all Diesel locomotives are Diesel-electric.
