Shatabdi Trains : Premium Short Distance Trains

Overview

Indian Railways introduced the Shatabdi Express, a superfast passenger train, in 1988. They return to their originating stations on the same day because they are day trains. The first Shatabdi train, the Jhansi Shatabdi Express, ran from New Delhi to Jhansi Junction, Uttar Pradesh, in November of 1988.

Shatabdi Express trains are a series of Indian Railways' fast (called super fast) passenger trains that connect Metro cities with other cities important for tourism, pilgrimage, or business. These trains are day-trains, meaning they leave and return on the same day.

Since Shatabdi trains are day trains that return to their starting station the same day, the coaches (known as AC Chair Car or CC) on the train only have seats, not berths. However, one or two coaches of Executive-class air-conditioned seating are available on all Shatabdi trains. Indian Railways, recently started service of Anubhuti Class in some of the Shatabdi Trains. In comparison to standard air conditioned seating, these coaches have more legroom and provide better food.

Features and Facilities in Shatabdi Trains

  • Shatabdi Express trains run during the day. This means that the train leaves from the starting station, travels to its destination, and then returns on the same day to the starting station
  • When compared to mail and passenger trains running on the same routes, Shatabdi Express trains make fewer stops, and get priority on the railway network.
  • Shatabdi Express trains have two classes of travel: AC Chair Cars (AC) and Executive Chair Cars (EC). In a few Shatabdi Express trains, Indian Railways has recently introduced a third type of travel class called Anubhuti (EA).
  • In Anubhuti class, each seat has an infotainment screen, along with other plush amenities like, reading lights, and a call button for attendants etc. Currently, this class is available on select routes like Delhi-Chandigarh, Chennai-Mysore, and Delhi-Lucknow etc.
  • Shatabdi trains, unlike many other express passenger trains in India, do not have an Unreserved/General (UR/GEN) class. These trains can only be boarded with a reservation.
  • Onboard entertainment and infotainment systems are available on some Shatabdi trains, allowing passengers to watch movies and other programs while travelling
  • In the AC Chair Car (CC) class of many Shatabdi trains, Indian Railways currently uses a dynamic pricing or Flexi fare system. That is, Shatabdi ticket prices are not set in stone, but rather fluctuate according to demand.

Routes of Shatabdi Trains

  • In India, there are currently 25 pairs of Shatabdi Express trains in service, 15 of which depart from New Delhi. These are day-trains, which means that the journeys are completed in one day. The longest route, 707 km (439 mi), is covered by the New Delhi Bhopal Habibganj Shatabdi Express, which makes 8 stops along the way. The 12046 / 45 Chandigarh New Delhi Shatabdi Express has the shortest route of 266 km (165 mi) and only 2 stops between Chandigarh and New Delhi.
  • Shatabdi trains are widely regarded as India's fastest trains. The New Delhi Bhopal Habibganj Shatabdi Express is currently the fastest, with an average speed of 91.85 km/h. It can travel 707 kilometers (439 miles) in 8 hours and 30 minutes. The top speed is 160 kilometers per hour.

Duronto Trains : The Non-Stop Train

Overview

Duronto Express trains, like the Rajdhani Express and Shatabdi Express trains, are a set of specialized rail services provided by Indian Railways. For the first time in India's history, non-stop point-to-point rail services have been introduced. These services link major cities and states.

Duronto Express trains have five different classes:

  • AC First Class(1A)
  • AC Two Tier(2A)
  • AC Three Tier(3A)
  • Three Tier Economy(3E)
  • Non AC Sleeper Class

These coaches have a yellow and green colour scheme. Passengers are provided with food. The fares are lower and the stops are fewer than on other superfast express trains. Because the Duronto trains' coaches are made of stainless steel, they are two tonnes lighter than other trains. LED night lamps, mobile charging points, bottle holders, and light switches are installed in the coaches, which also have transparent sliding doors.

Features and Facilities in Duronto Trains

  • Duronto trains are among the fastest trains in India, with a top speed of 130 km/h.
  • In comparison to India's other high-speed express trains, Duronto trains charge lower fares and make fewer stops.
  • The Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches are a unique feature of Duronto Expresses. When compared to traditional coaches in the Indian Railway system, these are made of stainless steel and have aluminium interiors, making them lighter in weight.
  • The Duronto trains' LHB coaches are designed to be anti-telescopic. This means they are derailment-proof and will not flip or overturn in the event of a collision, particularly a head-on collision.

Routes of Duronto Trains

  • The Duronto train is one of India's fastest trains. There are currently 26 Duronto trains operating across India. The Ernakulam–Duronto route, which runs between Kochi and New Delhi, is the longest at 2,943 kilometres. The Duronto Express's top speed is estimated to be 140 km/h, with an average speed of 91 km/h. If a Rajdhani train takes 10 hours to complete a journey, a Duronto train is expected to take 9 hours to complete the same journey. The Duronto Express takes 16 hours and 20 minutes to travel from Sealdah, Kolkata, to Delhi, covering a distance of 1453 kilometres.

Sampark Kranti Trains

Overview

Sampark Kranti Express trains are a series of high-speed trains that run between New Delhi, India's national capital, and the capital of each state or one of the country's major cities. The Sanskrit concepts Sampark and Kranti refer to interaction and revolution, respectively.

The Rajdhani Express trains, which provide high-speed access to New Delhi, were replaced by this series of trains.

Toy Trains : Travel Amidst Nature

Overview

The Indian Railways operates toy trains in several parts of the country. Following are the specifics of the Indian Railways’ toy trains. Toy trains in India are miniature trains that run on ancient mountain railway lines built by the British.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the British built roads to enable access to their hill villages. Despite the fact that these trains are slow and might take up to eight hours to reach their destinations, the view is breathtaking, making the journeys worthwhile.

The Antyodaya Express is a category of passenger train services established and operated by Indian Railways, having totally unreserved/general carriages.

DEMU and MEMU trains : Engineless Local Train

Overview

An electric multiple unit, or EMU, is a multiple unit train that does not require a separate locomotive and is propelled by electricity. Most EMUs are used for passenger trains, while they are occasionally employed for specialised non-passenger uses. They are usually made up of two or more semi-permanently connected carriages. A diesel multiple unit, or DMU, is a multiple-unit train that is powered by on-board diesel engines. DMUs, like EMUs, do not require separate locomotives.

Features and Facilities in DEMU and MEMU trains

  • DMUs can be diesel-electric (DEMU), diesel-mechanical (DMMU), or diesel-hydraulic (DHMU) (DHMU). These trains are popular all around the world because they make it easy to match passenger capacity to demand. In contrast to the EMU and DMU, the Mainline Electric Multiple Unit, or MEMU, is mostly used in India's semi-urban and rural areas. In contrast to EMU trains, MEMU trains have restrooms and end vestibules (gangway connections).

Salient Features of DEMU and MEMU trains

  • Because the train may be driven from both ends, the turnaround time at the finishing stop is reduced.
  • Shunting work does not necessitate the use of a locomotive.
  • In theory, fewer crew members are required because a train can be handled by a single motorman. There's no need for assistance.
  • Significantly improved braking and acceleration
  • EMU rakes with three phases of traction are more reliable and require less maintenance.
  • MEMUs have the ability to renew energy and save money on electricity.
