  • The swanky 16-coach train—’Train 18’—will cut journey time by 15 percent compared to the 30-year old Shatabdi.

More features, including 360-degree rotating seats

The T-18 boasts of plush interiors, diffused LED lighting, charging points beneath every seat, individual touch-based reading lights, auto-sensor taps, modern pantry services, and a modular luggage rack. The rotating seats are fitted in the executive coaches, so you can spin around to whichever direction you please.

The train will most likely replace the Delhi-Bhopal Shatabdi Express, and may even be introduced on the Howrah-New Delhi route, perhaps replacing the Rajdhani. It will be testing its systems starting from today, near the ICF in Chennai after which it will move to Delhi on 7 November.

Let’s hope the wheels start rolling soon!
