Shares in stocks that supply to the railways, were trading slightly higher, after witnessing some selling pressure on Tuesday. Kalindee Rail was up 0.5 per cent, Titagarh Wagons was up half per cent and BEML was up 1 per cent. Texmaco Rail was also up in early trade.
Union Railway Minister, Suresh Prabhu is expected to announce the Rail Budget on Feb 25. With budgetary constraints, it is unlikely that there is going to be huge prospects for Rail companies.
