There’s good news for those who like to travel by train in India. The Indian Railways is raring to add a new train to its existing series of super fast passenger train service – Rajdhani Express – which will connect New Delhi and Mumbai via Madhya Pradesh. The train will also pass through cities like Kalyan, Khandwa and Nasik in Maharashtra’s Central Railway Zone, before reaching its destination.
This train will be the first-of-its-kind to be covering the Central Zone. This is what the route is going to look like; it will pass through Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaja Terminus (CSMT), Kalyan, Jalgaon, Nasik, Khandwa, Bhopal, Agra, Jhansi and finally halt at Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station in New Delhi. For now, there are two Rajdhani Express trains plying between Delhi and Mumbai. Those two Rajdhani trains halt at Mumbai Central and at Bandra Terminus respectively. However, the railways are preparing to flag-off the new Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani Express that will cover the Central Zone soon.
All the trains from Delhi until now had entered Mumbai through Gujarat; this would be the first to take a detour and go through Madhya Pradesh. If you’re a constant traveller between these two cities, then from later this month, you can be sure to hop on to this new, exciting train that will drastically reduce the travel time. Around 23 Rajdhani trains connect several cities around India with New Delhi. But it’s always a rush when it comes to travelling to Mumbai from the state capital.
