Talgo is a Spanish company which manufactures high speed trains and one of them is Talgo. Talgo has a maximum speed of 200 km per hour. This very fast (for India) train will soon be seen on
the track routes of Delhi Mumbai doing trial runs. The interesting this is this that if the result came good, the railway will be considering to introduce this train for this as well as many other routes all over India as per a senior Railway Ministry official.

 High Speed Talgo Train To Go for Test Run On Delhi-Mumbai Route Soon

There is a much greater reason that is why Talgo is offering free of cost test runs of their lighter and faster runs. They know that Indian Railway is one of the largest railway of the world and this can benefit them in an exceptional high manner.

According to the railway official Talgo will conduct the time validation trial on Delhi-Mumbai corridor soon.

“We will be issuing the permission letter to Talgo after getting the Railway Board’s approval for importing the rake to India. They (Talgo) have offered to do the trial with no cost to railways,” said the official.

The parts of the train will be imported in India and then it will assembled within India to do the test run.

The main challenge is to run the Talgo at the speed in between 160 to 200 km/h with the existing infrastructure and tracks.  If this speed is achieved with safety then there will be time cut of 5 hours. Earlier it took 17 hours (We know it’s not correct for every train) but after Talgo it will take 12 hours to reach Mumbai from Delhi.
Apart from time savings, due to lighter trains of Talgo the trains will consume approximately 30 percent less energy and this will surely help railway to reduce their power bills.

Also as per the Official only minor changes may required to run the train and no big changes or material requred.

The process of test run will start as soon as railway ministry gets the approval.

“A lot depends on this Delhi Mumbai test run and, if the test run achieved successful, it may be considered for some more routes.

These trains are already running in several places in Asia and the US.

What’s you take on this new decision of Railway? This will surely improve Railway and save a hell lot of time of Indians. Overall it will increase the productivity of the whole nation.

    It may not help masses, but then Democracy also did not help masses. There is no harm if the high speed operation will be safe. Let us hope it will put India forward on the path of MODERNIZATION.
