‘Make in India’ locomotives are being sent to Sri Lanka

Big achievement for Indian Railways! Two railway locomotives, manufactured under Modi government’s ambitious ‘Make in India’ programme, are being exported to Sri Lanka. The locomotives were manufactured by the Diesel Locomotive Works (DLW), which is located in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. Earlier, Sri Lanka Railways ordered 10 such rail locomotives of 3000 HP broad gauge from DLW. Out of these 10, two locomotives have been sent to Sri Lanka during the end of February 2019. The locomotives are being sent in a rail engine trailer via road to Chennai Port in Tamil Nadu. From there, they will be taken to Sri Lanka. Also, one diesel rail engine was sent to Sri Lanka in the month of October, last year.
