All about The Vande Bharat Train
On September 24, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Kerala’s second Vande Bharat Express, the first of its kind with an orange exterior running on the Kasaragod-Thiruvananthapuram route. Kerala had previously received its first Vande Bharat Express train in April.
Vande Bharat Express trains are equipped with cutting-edge amenities and advanced features, such as rapid acceleration and semi-high-speed operation up to 160 kmph, fully enclosed gangways for passenger mobility, the safety system KAVACH, emergency alarm buttons, talk-back units in all coaches, river-guard communication with voice recording and crash-hardened memory, among others.
Indian Railways is gearing up to introduce Vande Bharat Express sleeper trains in 2024, featuring a completely redesigned concept. This initiative aims to revolutionise premium passenger transportation and gradually take on the role currently held by the Rajdhani Express trains. These sleeper trains are being manufactured in collaboration between BEML and the Indian Railways’ coach factory ICF at the BEML Limited facility in Bangalore.
The Vande Bharat Sleeper Trains are expected to consist of 16 coaches, including 11 air-conditioned 3-tier coaches, 4 air-conditioned 2-tier coaches, and 1 air-conditioned 1st-class coach.
