Within a year Indian Railways to Bring Bullet Trains Talgo Trains to Shatabdi Routes

Talgo is a Spanish company that manufactures standard, intercity and high-speed passenger trains that are also popularly called the “Bullet trains”. They have been quite famous in the world of trains and are known to be quite luxurious. And nowadays, luxury is not a big deal in India. All the luxury brands are setting up their franchises here in our country and nothing seems alienated anymore. Our Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu is all about bringing development and international brands to invest in our railways.

He has been trying to bring this luxurious brand of trains in our country to improve the speed and make commuting between places become easy for the common man. These Talgo trains are usually quite small with very few coaches. But if we are to bring this brand to our country, their company promises to modify the trains according to our needs. Apparently, the Indian Railway plans to bring about 2- 5 Talgo trains in less than a year’s time.

Our railway ministry is waiting for an approval on the Niti Aayog before asking the company to start manufacturing the trains and lease them. Once, this approval comes through, all the formalities will take no time to complete and these trains will be running on our tracks. These trains are to run on the Shatabdi routes and will have about 26 coaches which are very much similar to the existing Shatabdi trains. The costs and budgets are not yet known. The company is to use international coaches which will be modified according to the Indian needs. The major changes highlight on the toilets, platform heights and will get the Indian taste in them. The coaches are apparently 45% lighter and 30% more energy efficient when compared to the existing trains. They aim at running at faster speeds and reduce the travel time of the passengers.
