Railways to introduce timetable for goods trains.

10 Apr

For the first time in its history, Indian Railways is all set to come out with a timetable for the movement of goods trains. It’s an effort to attract more loadings and improve delivery.

“The Railways has constructed two dedicated freight corridors (DFC) – the western DFC (1,504 km) and the eastern DFC (1,856 km) – spanning a total length of about 3,360 km. As soon as the DFCs meant for exclusive movement of goods trains become operational, we will come out with a timetable,” said a railway official.

In Bengal, there will two such timetables – one for trains running under the jurisdiction of South Eastern Railway and the other for Eastern Railway.
