New milestone in Indian Railways: Top speed crosses 160 km an hr par:
Previous record of top speed by any Indian train was 150 km/h. But on Thursday an Indian passenger train set a new national speed record of 160 km an hour (100 miles an hour) during a test between Delhi and Agra.
The train complete the 200 km between New Delhi and Agra in around 90 minutes. The top speed clocked at 10 km more than the previous record.
"This is now the fastest train in India," Delhi divisional railway manager Anurag Sachan said. "We are recording all technical parameters during the trial run and hope to introduce it to the public by this November.".
Similar high-speed rail corridors are being planned between New Delhi and the northeastern city of Chandigarh, and the national capital and the industrial town of Kanpur 500 km away.
