First high-speed train between Delhi and Agra from November 10

The first high-speed train between Delhi and Agra with a speed of 160 km per hour is expected to run on November 10 as Kapurthala Rail Coach Factory is all set to roll out the first rake of fourteen coaches of the train.
Rail Coach Factory (RCF) has manufactured four coaches of the high speed train so far and the work was going on war footing to manufacture the remaining ten coaches by November 10 to turn out the first rake, RCF General Manager Pramod Kumar said.

RCF engineers in consultations with RDSO (Research Development and Standard Organisation) had made some changes in these coaches in designing of coupler system for smoother ride than Shatabdi and Rajdhani coaches, installation of smoke and fire detection system and automatic sliding of inner doors besides Passengers information system.

The GM said the approximate cost of one high speed coach would be between Rs.2.25-2.50 crore. He said that high speed coaches manufactured in RCF for Shatabdi and Rahdhani express trains are capable of running at the optimum speed of 160 kilometres per hour.

The GM said railways has selected ten routes on which high speed trains would run as announced by railway minister in his budget speech.

Initially speed of these trains would be 160 kilometre on select rail routes and gradually it would be enhanced up to 200 kilometre after upgrading the signalling system, barricading the area, he said.

The railway board and officials of railway department had already conducted a trial on these coaches on Delhi-Agra section at a speed of 160 kilometres and covered the 200 kilometre distance in 99 minutes a few days ago, a railway official said.

The RCF has also started working on the high speed coaches capable of running at a speed of 200 kilometre per hour by making some changes like automatic outer doors, changes in braking system with the provision of electro pneumatic brakes, noise reduction with better sound insulation, provision of TV set on the back of every seat in the executive chair cars and WI-Fi system besides improved vestibules, the GM said.

He said that high speed coach capable of running at 200 kilometres per hour would be rolled out by June next year.
