New routes for Vande Bharat Express! India’s first indigenous semi-high speed engine-less Train 18’s second all-new rake may be put into service on the Delhi–Amritsar route. According to a recent Dainik Jagran report, the Vande Bharat Express rake has reached the national capital from Chennai’s Integral Coach Factory (ICF), which is where Train 18 coaches are manufactured.
The new rake is likely to be utilized for starting new trips by the automatic, self-propelled train between Delhi and Amritsar, as per the report. Till the time this plan gets finalized by the Railway Ministry, the new rake will be used in the form of a “spare rake” between Delhi and Varanasi, where Vande Bharat Express has already been running since February.
The first Delhi-Varanasi Vande Bharat Express train set, was manufactured under ‘Make in India’ initiative, and was flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi this year, in the month of February. Read More
