Northeast Frontier Railway to standardise Rakes to ease operational constraint

GUWAHATI: To ease the operational constraints and ensure better availability of rakes for the running of trains on time, the NF Railway is going for standardisation of rakes, informed CPRO/NF Railway Pranav Jyoti Sharma in a press note.

“By this, any train can be made ready for departure even when its incoming link rake is delayed for some reason or the other. Every incoming rake requires a time of at least 7 hours for thorough inspection and cleaning of the pit line. If the incoming rake is late, an identical rake of the same composition can be used to run the service. Thus punctuality can be ensured” detailed the press note received here.
