Bhopal: India’s first engineless train will soon run between Delhi and Bhopal. The train, code-named Train 18, will run at a speed of 160 kmph. It will replace the existing Delhi-Bhopal Shatabdi train. This is the same concept that is used to operate metro trains in cities in India currently.

More Information:

  • The existing Shatabdi train from Delhi-Bhopal takes about 8 hours.
  • Train 18 would cut that by 3 hours, making the distance a total of 5 hours only.
  • The Train 18, which is built by Integral Coach Factory (ICF), Chennai, would promote “Make in India”.
  • The ICF will make 6 such train sets, out of which 2 will have sleeper coaches.
  • Train 18 will go on trials by the end of September or early October on various routes.
  • Upon successful implementation of Train 18, the IFC will start working on ‘Train 20’ which will have an all aluminum body.
  • Aluminum will make the train more aesthetic, lightweight, energy efficient, and durable.
