Four current Vande Bharat trains will have their routes expanded.

1. The train from Jamnagar to Ahmedabad will now stop at Dwarka.
2. The Delhi-Ajmer train will travel all the way to Chandigarh.
3. Prayagraj will now be served by the Gorakhpur-Lucknow train.
4. There will be an extension of the Thiruvananthapuram-Kasaragod train to Mangaluru.
These trains run on the states’ broad gauge electrified network.

A second train running between Katra and New Delhi was one of the six new Vande Bharat trains that the Prime Minister unveiled in December. Jalandhar-Mumbai, Ayodhya-Delhi, Mangaluru-Madgaon, Coimbatore-Bengaluru, and Amritsar-Delhi are among the other new trains that were launched. December 2023 also saw the opening of a second train that runs between Delhi and Varanasi.

With the launch of the additional services, India will have 51 Vande Bharat trains running on 45 routes. Notably, two Vande Bharat trains will travel between the same locations on six routes. These are the following: Mysuru-Chennai, Kasaragod-Thiruvananthapuram, Delhi-Katra, Delhi-Varanasi, Mumbai-Ahmedabad, and Visakhapatnam-Secunderabad.

Delhi is a hub for connectivity!

With 10 of the 51 Vande Bharat trains having Delhi as their final destination, Delhi will be the hub for the greatest number of connections. At the moment, Delhi has direct connections to Dehradun, Andaura, Bhopal, Ayodhya, and Amritsar via Vande Bharat trains. On Tuesday, Khajuraho will be added to this roster. There are also two trains from Delhi to Katra and Varanasi, respectively.

By afternoon, the Vande Bharat train is expected to have arrived in Visakhapatnam, having left Puri in the morning. It departs Visakhapatnam in the afternoon and returns to Puri at night.

Travel on the semi-high-speed Vande Bharat Express trains is becoming more and more popular, and people are prioritising it. In light of this, initiatives are in motion to extend Vande Bharat’s influence throughout the nation. The train that runs between Puri, in Odisha, and Visakhapatnam, in Andhra Pradesh, will be a noteworthy addition to this series. It is reported that on March 12, Prime Minister Narendra Modi might launch it via video conference.

The railway authorities have not yet released the rental information or the train’s precise stops for the Puri to Visakhapatnam route. There are also ongoing discussions regarding the departure point of the Vande Bharat train—whether it will depart directly from Khurda Road Station or from Bhubaneswar to Puri. There are currently two Vande Bharat trains in Odisha, one of which connects Puri to Howrah and Rourkela. The white and blue colors help to differentiate the two trains. But according to railway sources, the third Vande Bharat train’s color scheme might include blue and saffron.

Unknown miscreants recently threw stones at four Vande Bharat trains in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The train windows sustained damage as a result of the event. The Bangalore Division incident did not result in any injuries to passengers or staff, according to South Western Railway (SWR) officials, but the trains’ windows were broken. There have been distinct cases of stone-pelting on Vande Bharat trains, and each incident is recorded on the railway’s app.

The first incident happened at 6:15 AM when stones were thrown at Train 20661, the Hubballi Vande Bharat Express, as it passed Chikkabanavara Railway Station. At 3:20 PM, there was an attack on Train 20662 that was traveling from Hubballi to Bengaluru City Junction. The third incident happened at 4:30 PM when an attack happened close to Kuppam Station in Andhra Pradesh on a train (Train Number 20608) that was traveling from Mysuru Junction to Chennai Central.
