Woman drives local train in Hyderabad

Yet another male bastion fell in Hyderabad on Women’s Day on Thursday with a woman driving a local train of the South Central Railways (SCR). S Satyavati became the first woman loco pilot of SCR when she independently drove a Multi Modal Transit System (MMTS) train. She piloted ‘Matrubhumi Ladies Special Train’ from Falaknuma to Lingampally suburban stations. Satyavati joined as Assistant Loco Pilot in Bangalore in 1999, and was later transferred to Secunderabad division. She was promoted as Loco Pilot (Goods) in 2005 and had been working in shuttling duties on goods trains in and around Hyderabad area for the past few years, SCR sources said.
