Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for the fourth Vande Bharat Express train in Himachal Pradesh’s Una district on Thursday.
According to railway officials, the train will run between Delhi and Himachal Pradesh.
“The semi-high-speed train will run between Delhi and Amb Andaura. It will run on all days except Wednesdays,” a senior railways official told.
“However, the date of commencement of regular service is yet to be decided,” the official added.
The train from New Delhi to Amb Andaura will depart at 5:50am and arrive at 11:05am, while the train from Amb Andaura will depart at 1pm and arrive in New Delhi at 6:25pm.
According to officials, the train will have 16 coaches and will stop in Ambala, Chandigarh, Anandpur Sahib, and Una Himachal.
“This fourth VB train will be covering four states and a union territory making it preferable for travelers,” another railways official said.
The third service in the Vande Bharat series, the indigenously designed semi-high-speed train, was flagged off by PM Modi on September 30 from Gandhinagar Capital, and it began commercial operations on Saturday, October 1.
Vande Bharat Express trains also run between Delhi and Varanasi, as well as between Delhi and Katra.
