Central Railways' Unique "Garbage" 6-coach EMU Rake at Kurla. CR uses this rake to collect Garbage from different suburban sections across CR. Guess, since this eliminates the requirement of 2 shunters and coaches and also easy & fast to operate. (Vijay Aravamudhan)

I feel that Cr should remove all the interior and make it like BCNA type of coach, loading maximum of filth in single go.

Dont know why CR has been so generous, but if you see at end, CR has used one newly POHed driving cab for this rake, which had replaced a -to-be-scrapped old coach. And there is also one Ex WR motor coach 852B too in this consist
