New Delhi: After the success of high-speed Train 18, the Indian Railways is planning to introduce the Train 20 in the country that will replace the Rajdhani Express trains on the network. The high-speed train is likely to be rolled out by 2020.

More Information:

  • Alike Train 18, Train 20 will also be developed at the ICF (Integral Coach Factory) in Chennai.
  • For the first time in the history of Indian Railways, aluminium will be used for the manufacture of train coaches.
  • The self-propelled, fully air-conditioned train is expected to run at a maximum speed of 160 kmph.
  • The engine-less train will have CCTV cameras, diffused lighting, automatic doors and footsteps and a GPS-based passenger information system.
  • Unlike the AC chair car, Train 20 will have next-generation sleeper cars.
  • It will also have driver cabins at both ends.
  • Once the Railway Board gives its nod, the ICF will float new tender and invite bids for the ‘Make in India’ project.
