According to Livemint.com, workers in India's Chittaranjan Locomotive Works developed the locomotive as part of the country's Make In India initiative. Piyush Goyal, India's Minister for Railways and Commerce & Industry posted a video of the locomotive reaching what appears to be the red-line for engines at 180-kilometers per hour, which is roughly 110 mph.
