‘SheshNaag’, Indian Railway’s 2.8 KM Long train

Indian Railways has created another record by operating the longest freight train. It has been named “SheshNaag”. It is a 2.8 km long train amalgmating 4 empty BOXN rakes powered by 4 sets of electric locomotives. The rake had a total of 251 wagons which were pulled by four electric locomotives which were fitted in between. This target is achieved in the South East Central Railway Zone of the Indian Railways. The train had empty BOXN rakes.

Indian Railways are now moving to priortise toward freight trains network as the passenger trains are not running in full utilisation due to the spread of Coronavirus pandemic. They are trying to move multiple freight rakes together as it helps in saving the transportation time and also help in the decongestion of the rail route.
