AGRA: Hours after Integral Coach Factory (ICF), Chennai announced releasing the ‘Train 18’ in a week’s time for trial, the Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO) said, the trial would be done in a 80-day-long period in three phases.RDSO’s testing department would execute the trials of the first train set conceptualised, designed and manufactured completely in India. First Made-in-India engineless train gets on track for trial runBuilt for a quick intra-day travel on Shatabdi Express routes like Delhi-Bhopal, Chennai-Bengaluru and Mumbai-Ahmedabad, the sixteen-coach train has latest amenities and can cut down on travel time by 10-15%. The train has better acceleration than conventional trains as it has 50% more power and is equipped with a smart braking system. Speaking to TOI, chief public relation officer of RDSO A K Sinha said, “The first trial would be conducted on the Bareilly-Moradabad section on standard railway track to achieve...

normal speed of 115 kmph. Later in the second phase, the train would touch 180 kmph between Kota- Sawai Madhopur stretch, while the final would be on New Delhi-Bhopal section via Agra.”“Since the 16-coach train is made to cruise at 160 kmph, we have to keep at least 10 percent margin and test the engineless train up to 180 kmph. If the train achieves the required parameters with 100 percent safety standards, it will be recommended for commissioning in India railway,” he said. He added, “After the trials, it would be up to railway board to get commissioner of railway safety green signal to start the train’s operation. At present, RDSO is also testing 18 LHB coaches of Rajdhani Express rake with end-to-end electric locomotive engines to explore 160 kmph feasibility operation. The trials were recently conducted between Hazrat Nizamuddin-Mumbai via Kota-Madhopur section.”Once the ‘Train 18’ is approved for operation, it would be first be used between New Delhi-Bhopal to replace current LHB coach Shatbadi Express. Later, it would also likely replace Chennai-Bengaluru, Mumbai-Ahmadabad, New Delhi-Lucknow and New Delhi-Amritsar Shatabadi.

Yes, it did. Even before that, in 2002-2003, WDP4 had touched 179kmph during speed trials on the Konkan railway and covered a 450km stretch in 3 hours.

An interesting news article where some Loco Pilots describe the horror and trauma they face during and after accidents.
Often in the aftermath of accidents and train run-overs, little attention is given to the plight of the Loco pilots. The chief attention is usually on the victims and the Loco pilots are mostly not even mentioned. As seen in light of the recent incident at Amritsar, some people will go so far as to accuse the LPs of 'deliberate' inaction in face of the tragedy.
Most

of these 'accusers' don't even spare a thought for the LP's own mental health and the kind of trauma they have to endure regularly due to the frequent, avoidable track-side causalities caused in most cases, simply due to people's negligence.
With people paying least attention to their own safety by loitering around railway tracks in dangerous situations, they are not only endangering their own lives, but are also causing irreparable damage to the mental health of the Loco pilots, who already work in extremely stressful conditions and are responsible for the safety of thousands of passengers.
In this context, the news article in the link above, gives a LP's perspective on the horrors they see in their jobs daily and how it affects them.
