Northeast to get first Vande Bharat Express train

The Northeastern region of India is gearing up to get its first Vande Bharat Express train on Thursday expected to run from New Jalpaiguri to Guwahati. Sanjay Chilwarwar, additional divisional railway manager (ADRM), Katihar, Northeast Frontier announced on Saturday that the 17th Vande Bharat will connect Assam with West Bengal. It will tentatively be virtually flagged off on Thursday by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, according to the ADRM.

As per a story published in The Hindustan Times, operating six days a week, it is set to be the third Vande Bharat in West Bengal after the NJP- Howrah and Howrah-Puri trains. The semi-high-speed train (Up-22227-Down-22228) will cover around 410 km within 6 hours. The eight-coach train conducted its first trial run on Sunday.

Earlier railway minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said that the PM has set a goal for the Vande Bharat to run in almost all the states by June. “Vande Metro is being designed for a distance of less than 100 km and for daily travel," he added.
