The fastest and indigenously built Train 18 is likely to be launched by Indian Railways on the Delhi to Varanasi route on 25 December. With a potential to reach a top speed of 200 kmph, it reached 180 kmph during the test run.
A senior Railway official said, “Christmas Day also happens to be the birthday of late Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and it would be a tribute to the great statesman of the country if we manage to launch the next-generation train on that day.”
As per plans, the train will start from Delhi at 6 am and will reach Varanasi by 2 pm. The return journey will begin at 2.30 pm from Varanasi and reach Delhi by 10.30 pm. Read More
