Pyongyang, November 8 (KCNA) — New electric locomotives “second grand Chollima march” have been manufactured in Korea.
The locomotives that reflect the spirit of the times of Korea running at a canter on a steed are a gift made by the workers of the Kim Jong Thae General Electric Locomotive Works to the meeting of frontrankers of the second grand Chollima march.
The workers, deeply aware of the role the railway transportation has to play in building an economically powerful nation, set the goal of presenting the locomotives to the historic meeting. They succeeded in building the locomotives in a short span of time by making what they lack and tapping what they feel short of. Thousands of tons of materials and accessories including carbide and welding rods were produced at more than 30 bases built by themselves.
Meanwhile, they could secure more than 100 kinds of materials and accessories on their own efforts through the introduction into production of hundreds of valuable technical innovation proposals including technologies for producing a variety of bearings, resistance wires and insulating varnish.
The produced locomotives are to be sent to the Kilju, Huichon and Kowon locomotive corps which have strain on transport.
The officials and workers of the Kim Jong Thae General Electric Locomotive Works honored their annual plan as of October 26 in hearty response to the militant call of the Worker’s Party of Korea for marking this year as a great turning-point in building a powerful nation.
