Exciting news for Indian Railways as the Integral Coach Factory plans to launch Vande Bharat sleeper trains in March 2024, offering more comfortable long-distance travel and the Vande Metro for shorter commutes.

In a big step forward for the Indian Railways, the Integral Coach Factory (ICF) is all set to introduce the first Vande Bharat sleeper train in March 2024. BG Mallya, the General Manager of ICF, has confirmed this exciting development. The upcoming Vande Bharat sleeper train promises to bring a whole new level of comfort to long-distance travel on high-speed trains.

Easier Long-Distance Travel

The introduction of Vande Bharat sleeper trains is fantastic news for a country where train travel is a way of life. This new addition aligns perfectly with India’s need for efficient and convenient rail travel. The sleeper coaches will make overnight travel smooth and comfortable, ushering in a new era of train travel in the country.

Metro for Shorter Distances

But that’s not all. The ICF is also working on another exciting project called the Vande Metro. This innovative 12-coach train is designed for short-distance travel and is scheduled to hit the tracks by January 2024. With the Vande Metro, passengers can look forward to a fast and comfortable journey for their everyday commutes, giving more options for rail travel in India.

Expanding the Vande Bharat Express Network

The Vande Bharat Express network is also expanding. Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw has announced that Madhya Pradesh’s Neemuch will soon be connected to this remarkable service. The Vande Bharat Express has already made a big impact on the Indian rail sector with its modern amenities and reduced travel times, changing the way people experience train travel across the nation. Currently, there are 50 operational services spanning India’s rail network, showing the remarkable reach of this initiative.

Vande Bharat’s ‘Make-In-India’ Journey

The story of the Vande Bharat Express is a testament to India’s engineering skills and the ‘Make-In-India’ initiative. After its inauguration, it made its first journey on February 15, 2019, running between New Delhi and Varanasi. This high-speed train was made at the Integral Coach Factory (ICF) in Chennai, highlighting India’s commitment to self-reliance and technological progress.

The Vande Bharat Express project began in mid-2017 when the effort to manufacture indigenous semi-high-speed train sets started. Remarkably, within just 18 months, the ICF Chennai unveiled Train-18, which was later renamed as the Vande Bharat Express in January 2019.

Comfort and Convenience

One of the Vande Bharat Express’s biggest achievements was its incredible speed, reaching a maximum of 180 kilometers per hour on the Kota-Sawai Madhopur section. As India continues to make progress in the field of rail transportation, the eagerly awaited Vande Bharat sleeper trains and the Vande Metro are set to bring more convenience and comfort to the country’s vast railway network, showing Indian Railways’ dedication to progress and passenger satisfaction.
