New Delhi: The Indian Railways created history after the South East Central Railway (SECR) joined and ran three trains carrying more than 1500 tonnes in an 'Anaconda' formation.

The trains ran through the Bilaspur and Chakradharpur divisions.

The Indian Railways' official Twitter account shared the video and wrote, "Taking a big leap in reducing the transit time of freight trains, Bilaspur division of SECR broke yet another frontier by joining & running 3 loaded trains (more than 15000 tonnes) in 'Anaconda' formation through Bilaspur & Chakradharpur divisions."

The 'Super Anaconda' three-in-one freight service reportedly has 177 wagons and three electric locomotives with a 6000 HP capacity each.

Earlier on June 12, 2020, Indian Railways created a new world benchmark by successfully running first Double Stack Container Train in high rise Over Head Equipment (OHE) electrified sections.

This achievement was a first of its kind in the entire world and will also boost the ambitious mission of Green India as a latest green initiative over Indian Railways.
