Vande Bharat Express: Indian Railways looks to speed up production of 44 Train 18 sets; here’s how

Vande Bharat Express: Indian Railways moves to speed up the production of 44 Vande Bharat Express trains! Railway Board Chairman VK Yadav has said that the ‘Make in India’ train sets will now be manufactured by not one but three units of Indian Railways – Integral Coach Factory in Chennai, Railway Coach Factory in Kapurthala and Modern Coach Factory in Rae Bareilly. As many as 44 Vande Bharat trains will be added on the Indian Railways network within the next three years, according to a PTI report. Yadav was quoted as saying that some months back, it was decided by the national transporter that the three manufacturing units will manufacture these trains. Therefore, this will reduce the time taken to roll out the trains by one-third.

The 44 Train 18 services will start operating in the next two to three years. A definite timeline will be made available, once the tender is finalized, Yadav said. The Integral Coach Factory (ICF), in a letter dated July 14, informed the Railway Board that as per the estimates, it would take a period of 28 months to introduce the prototype rakes into commercial service.
