Bhubaneswar, Sep 4: The East Coast Railway (ECoR) has upgraded Electromechanical Station Master (SM) slide system at Solari railway station in Khurda Road Division to panel interlocking system with operating cum indication panel.
This system makes the operational procedure more reliable, quick, easy and safe with less maintenance of gears.
