To run goods trains in cold conditions, railways today joined hands with Sweden for technical cooperation in rail sector between both countries. 

"Sweden being the cold country, it has expertise on freight operation in the freezing weather. Now Indian Railways is also aiming to operate freight during the cold condition," said a senior Railway Ministry official involved with the agreement process with Sweden. 

Besides railways also aims to acquire Swedish expertise to run semi-high speed train on existing tracks. 

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Railways and the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation of Sweden on technical cooperation in rail sector.

Exchange of knowledge, technical expertise, innovation, technology, sustainable solutions and research are some other areas where both countries have agreed to work in rail sector. 

The official said MoU is to develop cooperation activities in the Railway area to promote efficiency and sustainability and achieve concrete results with regard to bilateral trade, investment, research and technology transfer. 

MoU will remain in force for 5 years from the date of signing. It can be extended for a further period of five years with the written consent of both sides.
