Indian Railways starts first goods train with an all-women crew: Check details here

Indian Railways has introduced a goods train that is operated by an all-female crew. The train service started between Vasai Road in Maharastra to Vadodara in Gujarat on January 5.

The train is helmed by Kumkum Suraj Dongre- the Loco Pilot, along with Udita Verma- the Assistant Loco Pilot and Akansha Rai – the Goods Guard, as per a statement by the Western Railway zone.

“Very few women come forward to join these posts due to the grueling nature of the job of guards and loco pilots, which also involves traveling long distances,” a senior Railway official said.
