PYTHON GOODS TRAIN RUNS ON WR-Long Haul train with 90 Container Wagons rolls out of Mundra Port


Western Railway has achieved a new milestone by running a Python train (long haul train) with 90 container wagons load from Mundra Port to Bhildi in Gujarat.


Western Railway has recorded a considerable increase in freight traffic especially from the ports of Gujarat. However there is much more untapped potential which can be harnessed by increasing the throughput of the line serving these ports.


Western Railway has made a maiden attempt by combining two container loaded trains into o­ne python train. The python train left from Mundra Port o­n 11th May, 2011 for Bhildi. This will help in increasing the throughput of the section and boost the freight operations o­n Western Railway and contribute substantially to the economic growth and prosperity of the region.
