FAST TRAINS FROM DELHI TO AGRA, CHANDIGARH & KANPUR
Indian Railways is all set to hold a trial run of a train at a speed of 160kmph on the Delhi-Agra route as it looks to launch a semihigh speed service between the two destinations in November as per Press Trust of India. Currently, the Bhopal Shatabdi runs at speeds of up to a maximum of 150kmph on that route.
The train would come as a boon for tourists visiting Taj Mahal as the travel time between Delhi and Agra is expected to come down to 90 minutes from the current 120 minutes. The state transporter is making the semi-high speed train — the first of its kind in the railways — operational using its own resources. After the Delhi to Agra service, Railways will run similar trains for Kanpur and Chandigarh from the national capital
