The country will enter in a new age railway as the Indian Railways is all set to roll out its much awaited indigenously built semi-high speed train for inter-city travel Codenamed Train 18 on Monday (October 29). "We are planning to unveil the train on Oct 29," ICF General Manager S.Mani told news agency IANS. He said the train will undergo test runs in two/three sectors for about two months and on satisfactory results, would be inducted into passenger service. The self-propelled train Train 18 (depicting the year it is being manufactured), would run at a speed of 160 kmph. It will eventually replace Shatabdi Express trains on the Indian Railways network.
