Here is another feat of the country’s lifeline. Indian Railways is creating a history of sorts by running longest freight trains.

Today, the Railways operated a mammoth 2.8 kam long train named ‘SheshNaag’. It is the longest train ever to run on the railway tracks. The Railways created this by amalgamating 4 empty BOXN rakes, powered by 4 sets of electric locomotives.
