Up and down trains on Mandalay-Myitkyina railroad get new coaches

Coaches of 33-up Mandalay-Myitkyina train and 34-down Myitkyina-Mandalay train (sleeper) were substituted with India-made coaches on 17 January.
The substitution of new coaches was held at No 1 platform of Mandalay Station.
Myanma Railways and Kachin Public Co Ltd carry out a joint-venture for running the 37-up and 38-down trains along Mandalay-Myitkyina railroad.
Thanks to substitution of new coaches, trains will run along the railroad sections on time for better transport of passengers, the Mandalay Region Minister for Transport told media at the ceremony.
A total of 60 up and down cargo trains are running along the railroad from Myohaung station to Myitkyina so as to transport consumer products and foods to people of Kachin State. These cargo and passenger trains transport about 1,000 tons to 2,000 tons of commodities monthly.–Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)
