This is not the first time, the South East Central Railway zone had done something like this! A few days ago, the zonal railway joined and run three loaded freight trains together, growing a new history for the countrywide transporter. In a tweet, the Railway Ministry had noted that while taking a huge soar in decreasing the transit time of freight trains, the Bilaspur Division of the South East Central Railway sector operated the three loaded freight trains on the Indian Railways network (carrying over 15,000 tonnes) in a form of an ‘Anaconda’, through Bilaspur Division and Chakradharpur Division.
