The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) has inked a pact with Heavy Engineering Corporation Ltd (HECL) on Friday for the supply of century-old steam locomotives of Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR).
"The day would be marked as a Red Letter Day in conservation history of railways as the signing of MoU would ensure that the heritage-era steam locomotives would never die out." said Rajen Gohain, Union Minister of State for Railways. 
HECL would supply 41 critical spare components for the available steam locomotives, which will keep the locomotives operational. 
Darjeeling Himalayan Railway was bestowed with World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 1999 for “bold and ingenious engineering solutions to the problem of establishing an effective rail link across a mountainous terrain of great beauty”.
HECL has agreed to manufacture steam locomotives of DHR, which includes spares of narrow gauge steam locomotives and development of steam boiler for narrow gauge steam locomotives.
