All you need to know about Super Vasuki – 3.5km long train

According to officials, the Super Vasuki carries enough coal to operate a 3000 MW power plant for a whole day. This can transport three times as much coal in a single trip as the 90-car, 100-ton rail rakes that are now in use. Five goods trains were combined into one rake to create the train. In order to avoid fuel shortages for power plants, the Railways intends to adopt this configuration (longer freight trains) more frequently, particularly to transport coal during the period of high demand. Coal shortages earlier this year had plunged the nation into a serious power crisis.
