Making history: all-women crew pilots goods train in Mumbai

Jan 07, 2021 12:42 IST

In a first for the Indian Railways, an all-women-crew recently piloted a goods train, making history! The freight train left from Mumbai's Vasai Road to Vadodara on the 5th of January with Loco Pilot Kumkum Nagendra, Assistant Loco Pilot Udita Verma and Goods Guard Aakanksha Ray on duty. The trio was honoured with an award for their valuable contribution. The railways constantly strive to increase women representation in jobs.
