New Delhi: On Saturday, the first engine-less train of the country, ‘Train 18’ will initiate its trial run on the Bareilly-Moradabad section.

Train 18 has been designed in such a way that it won’t require an engine in order to run on rails. It will have a self-propulsion module sans a separate locomotive and the train will have the capacity to run at a speed of up to 160 kmph. The Train 18 is said to be a successor to the 30-year-old Shatabdi Express.

Adding more to the features of the train, some technical advancements have been made in the train that favours acceleration thereby providing quick and enhanced acceleration to the train. Train 18 has been designed to have 16-coaches which won’t be headed by an engine at the front. This self-propulsion module sans a separate locomotive train will cut travel time by 15 per cent as compared to that of the Shatabdi Express.

Train 18 has full airconditioned coaches and the coaches are designed in such a way that passengers sitting at their seats can easily peak and have a look at the driver’s cabin. The train has been manufactured by a Chennai-based Integral Coach Factory and it took complete 18 months to design the whole project.

As per the news sources, during the trial run of Train 18 in October, some glitches were reported which have been completely taken care of by the Railways.

“During the low speed trials of Train 18, a power disarray was noticed – technically called harmonics – which led to blowing up of fuses and activation of safety (systems) at (electricity) sub-stations and stalling of some locomotives in the section,” S Mani, General Manager of Integral Coach Factory (ICF) told reporters.

After completing the trial process in Chennai, the train reached Delhi two days later on November 11.
