Wonder how they paint the private busses. The schemes are so intricate, that some are only possible on a computer!

@Ashley2 - so the H series is AL in house product? Is the 370/400/403 (these share the same block, crank and head) engine still in production? Is it used on vehicles? (I see it listed for Gensets and Marine applications).

Of course they are still under production for marine and Genset application.I believe it should be 402 and not 403.
They share same block but there will be some differance in Head and other auxillaries ( fule intake, Ex Mani etc).
Most of these marine engines do not qualify for BSII or BSIII in the same spec as produced. Further power band requirements will also vary from application to application.
Its quite difficult to match a same spec engine for stationary(includes marine) as well as mobile application.
So they are not used in vehicles in the same form.

Default History of Trucks

Some information I gathered on History of Trucks

With the need to move heavy freight over long distances and perform some specialized functions, the first motor truck was built by v Gottlieb Daimler in 1896. This was a simplistic design with a 4 hp engine. The transmission contained a belt drive with two forward speed gears and one for reverse. Then America came up with its own first truck. It was produced by the Winton Company 1898. It was more of a delivery wagon with single cylinder engine which churned out a modest 6 hp (The world has come a long way with V8 engine churning out 400 hp).

With the onset of World War 1 trucks were majorly used in most Super-power countries and by the 1920ís they were the primary means of transporting freight.

Diesel engines became a popular choice in large trucks since 1930ís as opposed to the Petrol engines because diesels can develop more power for hauling freight. Diesel engines in trucks require transmissions with a greater number of forward speeds. Present day trucks can have even 16 forward speed gears running in dual-range transmission. This allows the gigantic machine to generate the maximum power for climbing up slopes and also generate maximum speed for highway driving.

Trucks were manufactured in two basic configurations i.e. the straight truck and the articulated truck. The straight truck has all axles attached to the frame. The articulated has two or more frames suitably coupled to each other. A towing truck or Tractor is an example of articulated frame.

Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KeSRTC) has introduced Volvo B7RLEs (Volvo 8400s) in Kochi (Ernakulam - or Cochin) city. The services were flagged off yesterday. The buses were flagged off by Union Minister, KV Thomas, at a function attended by Jose Thettayil (State Transport Minister), KP Dhanapalan MP, Dominic Presentation MLA and Kochi Mayor Mercy Williams.

These buses would initially run on two routes:
#607: Fort Kochi to Airport, via Thoppumpady, Kundanoor, Vytilla, Edappalli Bypass, Kalamassery, Aluva Bypass. (45 kms, 1 hour 35 minutes, Rs. 70) (Three buses)
#617: Aroor to Ankamaly via Vytilla, Edappalli Bypass, Kalamassery, Aluva Bypass, Airport, Athani. (43 kms, 1 hour 30 minutes, Rs. 67) (Four buses)

A total of 7 buses were flagged off. 50 buses were ordered, of which 7 were delivered. These buses would make 7 round trips per day, between 6 AM and 10 PM. That makes a frequency of about 30~40 minutes on each route.

Now for some pics:

Didn't know that Scania was available in India. Whom have they tied up with here?

Also, most of the TATA trucks the military uses have the ALL Wheel Drive feature. Are these AWD trucks available for the general public from TATA?
