The gauge conversion work is going on at Chito Sadri area of Mavli Junction and to coverage the gap which has been created die to lockdown the company came up with a make shift technique, the raw material had be transported to the areas where the work of gauge conversion is going on, and save time, energy and cost the company took up to the idea of the make shifter tractor.
The rubber tyres of the tractor haw been replaced with the metal wheels which can easily run on the railway tracks.
The tractor is also being installed with a trolly behind it just to carry the raw material in it.The decision waw taken as during the work of gauge conversion there are places lying in jungles and it is difficult for any vehicle to deliver the raw material there, seeing that the company decided to modify the tractor so that it can deliver the raw material even in these areas.
