Yeah, doesn't sound bad. tat's why EMD project came to IR after 50 years.
And the many other projects came out slowly in IR when the world was busy testing the next generation locos.

In 2002, CORE had sent a proposal to electrify RBR, but Board refused it by saying, let the Zonal Division send the requests. There is a lot of RED TAPISM in IR and until IR doesn't agree on this that the branch lines or now what they call as FEEDER ROUTES, NEED to be strengthen because now they feel (After Japan Rail Corporation woke them up ) that IR is wasting a lot of potential revenue by ignoring or not upgrading the branch lines, which can be used to transport heavy...
