   With focus on new areas of freight traffic, Waltair Division of East Coast Railway transported the first fly-ash rake from Simhadri Super Thermal Power Plant (NTPC), Visakhapatnam. The rake was loaded for ACC limited private siding served by Thondebhavi station, South Western Railway, which is about 944 kilometers from the Simhadri Super Thermal Power Plant.  The fly ash generated at NTPC stations, causes environmental pollution and also safety hazards.  It is ideal for use in the manufacture of cement, concrete, concrete products, cellular concrete products, bricks/blocks/ tiles etc. Mostly the fly-ash is being transported by road which is leading to environment pollution. This freight train consists of 59 BOX-N wagons and transported about 4000 metric tonnes of fly-ash.
