INDIA PLANS UNIT TRAINS TO MOVE FREIGHT IN THE 1980'S

With freight expected to more than double by 1988-89, Indian Railways is preparing to move the bulk of this traffic in 4500-tonne air-braked unit trains running on 14 high-capacity routes. This requires an integrated programme embracing major improvements in motive power, wagons, signalling and infrastructure. The Research Designs Standards Organisation is investigating all these areas as a multi-discipline project.
