New Delhi: Indian Railways is working on a plan to upgrade its railway network. Under the Golden Quadrilateral scheme, the Railways is considering a change in the design of coaches in long-distance mail and express trains. According to the Railways’ policy, sleeper coaches will be completely removed from long-distance mail and express trains. This means that such vehicles will have only AC bogies. The speed of such trains will be 130 to 160 kmph. Non-AC coaches traveling at speeds of 130 km per hour or more on mail, express trains cause technical problems. Therefore, sleeper coaches in all such trains will be removed.
It is proposed to install 83 AC coaches in long distance mail and express trains. However, the number of such coaches will be increased to 100 by the end of this year. However, it is planned to increase the number of coaches to 200 next year. This means that in the future, the journey will be more comfortable and will be completed in less time. The consolation is that the fare for this mail, express is also planned to be lower than that of a normal AC coach.
However, the removal of sleeper coaches does not mean that non-AC coaches will be completely removed. However, the speed of a train with a non-AC coach will be less than that of an AC train. According to the information received, such trains will run at a speed of 110 km per hour. This whole work will be done in an orderly manner. Also, learning from new experiences will lead to further planning.
Earlier, Indian Railways on Wednesday approved 39 new passenger trains. All these trains will be run as special trains. Railways has announced the list of all these 39 trains. However, no information has been given as to when this train will run.
