South Central Railway celebrated the World Environment Day by taking a significant leap forward towards attaining the objectives of Energy Conservation by commencing the run of the first Main Line Diesel Locomotive fuelled with a blend of Bio-Diesel and traditional High Speed Diesel (HSD) today i.e, 5thJune, 2015. The introduction, which marks the beginning of regular usage of Bio-Diesel on main line locomotives on SCR, is also a first of its kind endeavor on Indian Railways.
The initiative, taken forward on the directions of Shri P.K.Srivastava, General Manager, SCR has seen the Zone taking its first firm step on the long journey of finding a cleaner and environment friendly alternate fuel.
