The First Vande Sadharan Express train reached Mumbai’s Wadi Bunder yard on Sunday, October 29. After the train trail run, Vande Sadharan will start running regularly between these stations.
Because people liked the air-conditioned (AC) Vande Bharat Express, which is a fast and nice train, Indian Railways is ready to run a new train called Vande Sadharan Express. This train won’t have AC, so it will be cheaper, and it’s for people who want lower-priced tickets. The Vande Sadharan train is meant to be comfy and easy for passengers. It has 22 cars and can carry up to 1,834 passengers. The train has good things like clean toilets, info screens for passengers, and spots to charge your gadgets.
The Vande Sadharan Express is designed with two engines, one at each end. This special setup makes the train run well and faster than usual express trains. It’s meant to save time for passengers, just like the faster Vande Bharat Express. The Vande Sadharan train has 12 sleeper non-AC coaches, eight general coaches, and two luggage coaches. This train will run at a speed of 130 per hour.
