In order to increase the movement of other commodities including coal and food grains in the country, Indian Railways has started operating the longest freight trains.

New Delhi.In order to increase the movement of other commodities including coal and food grains in the country, Indian Railways has started operating the longest freight trains.These long-distance freight trains named 'Trishul' and 'Garuna' are about three times bigger than normal freight trains.Indian Railways believes that this will greatly help in maximum freight movement over long distances.These goods trains will greatly facilitate the transportation of coal to thermal power stations.Such freight trains can be of great help in carrying more and more loads of freight and reaching the designated destination.

In the first phase, both the goods trains reached their respective destinations.

For the first time, both these long-distance freight trains have been run by the Railways.Such trains have several advantages, including the ability to carry a lot of cargo at once.These long-distance freight trains include 177 wagons, which are more than three times the length of a normal freight train.At present, both these goods trains are operated by South Central Railway.South Central Railway is one of the five major freight railways.The South Central Railway carries bulk goods on the main routes of these sections.Most of the freight traffic passes through the railway routes of this section.

Indian Railways did many experiments

Such freight trains will be expanded after the success of Garuda and Trishul operations.Many experiments were done during the Corona period The Indian Railways has done many important experiments in the direction of freight transportation during the Corona period, which has also benefited it.During this, there has been a tremendous improvement in the performance of freight trains when the track was found empty due to the stagnation of passenger trains.In view of the improvement in performance, the Railways has undertaken a number of works for freight movement on several sections of the railways.Powerful engines have also been made for the goods trains of long length so that there is no problem in their operation.
