ECoR Moves Freight Trains

In order to ensure essential supplies, Indian Railways in general and particularly East Coast Railways continue to work 24X7.

Though all passenger carrying trains have been stopped, but freight trains are still running.

Railways are ensuring supply by moving goods like food grains, coal, petroleum products, fertilizers, milk in containers , vegetables in certain parts of the country, etc , which is very important for the society.
 
ECoR in particular, is playing a major role in moving vital commodities like coal for powerhouses.

If coal does not reach powerhouses, we will face shortage of electricity from April onwards. Similar is the case with other items like petroleum products.

ECoR is transporting food grains like rice and wheat for Food Corporation of India and iron ore and finished steel for steel plants. Alumina powder and Aluminium ingots are being run for NALCO in special types of wagons.

East Coast Railway continues to serve the nation in its own humble way.

On 23 March, ECoR ran more than 500 trains in its jurisdiction. All the trains run were carrying essential materials. Loco Pilots and Guards continue to work hard and courageously in discharging their duties. These are the unsung soldiers and brave warriors of our society.

Divisional Railway Managers of Khurda Road, Sambalpur and Waltair have, in separate letters, requested police and district authorities to facilitate movement of essential staff engaged in Train operations.

Government of India has also advised State Governments to extend all help to running of trains carrying essential commodities.

Staff engaged in track, wagon and signal maintenance along with Station Masters and Train Control Staff are also required for running train operations.
