Two metre gauge diesel engines, out of an export order of four locos, were dispatched to Myanmar from Golden Rock Railway Workshop here on Saturday.

The locos have a number of additional features, including ergonomically designed sleek type control stands, LED type reading and classification lamps, roof mounted cab fan, and twin beam headlights for better luminosity to suit the working environment of Myanmar railways.

The RITES Ltd, a Government of India enterprise under the aegis of Indian Railways, had given the order to Golden Rock Railway Workshop to export four diesel engines to Myanmar. The workshop had crossed another milestone by rolling out the locos to Myanmar.

It has exported 135 diesel locos to various countries, including Malaysia, Sudan, Senegal, Benin and Myanmar since 1994, a press release here said.
