Watch: Central Railway introduces Mumbai’s first ‘tricolour’ local on Gandhi Jayanti; see pics
Mumbai: The Central Railway’s Mumbai division today unveiled a ‘tricolour’ rake, which marks the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
The rake has been painted by students and teachers of Central Railway School (CRS) in Kalyan, with due support from principal Jacob Thomas. The institution, incidentally, completed 100 years in 2018.
The coaches have been painted saffron, white and green to represent India’s tricolour flag and feature several depictions of Mahatma Gandhi.
Another aspect of the artwork is the focus on ‘Swachh Bharat’, which the railways have wholeheartedly imbibed and promoted throughout all its recent campaigns.
The newly painted rake, christened ‘Swachhata Express’ have been put to service on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti on October 2, Udasi added.
