In a good news for those who prefer train travels, India’s first locomotive-less aka engineless train breached the 180 kmph mark during the test run on Sunday, a senior official said. It has been named ‘Train18’.
This Rs 100-crore indigenously designed train will become the country’s fastest train.
“Train 18 breached the 180 kmph speed limit in the Kota-Sawai Madhopur section. The major trials are now over, with just some more remaining. Based on the reports, fine tuning would be done if needed. As of now, no major technical problem has cropped up,” S Mani, General Manager of Integral Coach Factory (ICF) that has manufactured the train, said.
