India’s upcoming fastest Train ‘Talgo’ faced an embarrassing situation, when the train was delayed by over three hours in its first trial run to Mumbai.
Talgo had left Delhi at 7:55pm on August 1 and was scheduled to reach Mumbai latest by 10am on August 2, but thanks to the monsoon, the train took over 15 hours and reached Mumbai at 11:15am.
This is Talgo’s third and final phase of the trial. It is now scheduled to make a return journey on August 3 when it will leave for Delhi at 3pm.
Talgo will again run at the speed of 130kmph and is expected to reach Delhi on August 4 by maximum 5pm.
At present Rajdhani is India’s fastest train, which covers this distance in 17 hours.
Let’s hope next few trails works out in favor of Talgo.
