About 200 unusable wagons rusting in Parbotipur railway junction area

Our Correspondent

NILPHAMARI, May 15: More than 200 old unusable railway wagons and compartments are being impaired and became rusty in Parbotipur railway junction and Syedpur railway workshop area. This situation has been created as the wagons and compartments are dumped under open sky and being destroyed in rain and sunlight.

The area where the materials have been kept has become safe haven of the criminals, thieves and drug addicts.

Sources said there is no initiative by the railway to sale those while in doing so the railway could earn nearly Tk 600 million at least. The abandoned wagons and compartment are lying in the same place for more than 30 years or so. The rail lines on which the abandoned materials are dumped are also being rusty and unusable.

The abandoned materials have occupied huge valuable railway land which could be used for other profitable purpose.

An official of Syedpur railway workshop said if the dumped wagons and compartments are sold the railway could earn Tk 600 million at least.
