Udaipur : Indian Railways is set to introduce another Vande Bharat Express for Rajasthan. This semi-high speed train will be operated and maintained by the North Western Railway (NWR) zone. The train will enhance the passenger experience as well as reduce the travel time between two cities.
The national transporter has introduced two new age trains for the state in the current financial year. These trains are – Ajmer-Delhi Cantonment Vande Bharat Express and Jodhpur-Sabarmati Vande Bharat Express.
The train will cover a distance of 430 kms in six hours. This will be the fastest train on the route followed by Kavi Guru Express and Udaipur-Jaipur Superfast Special. Both the trains cover the same distance in 06:55 hrs and 07:10 hrs respectively.
The national transporter has commenced the trial run of this new semi-high speed train. The train reached Udaipur City last week from Chennai-based Integral Coach Factory (ICF). Speaking to FinancialExpress.com, Shashi Kiran, Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO), North Western Railway (NWR) said, “On August 13, a trial run was done between Udaipur and Jaipur.”
