Spanish-made high-speed train Talgo completed its third and final phase of trial from New Delhi to Mumbai on Tuesday, but arrived at its destination over three hours behind schedule.
The semi-high-speed train had to cover a distance of 1,384 km from Delhi to Mumbai. A western railway official told PTI, "The train had commenced its final phase trial run from Delhi yesterday at 7:55 PM and arrived in Mumbai today at 11.40 AM, over three hours behind schedule." Heavy rains enroute the journey was cited as a reason for delay, otherwise the train would have reached the metropolis at 8.31 AM.
can attain a maximum speed of 130-150 km/hr, which according to the official was attained in the trial run. However, the average speed that Talgo is estimated at around 90-100 km/hr.
High-speed Talgo train reaches Mumbai three hours late Here's what Ministry of Railways has to say about the trial:
Talgo special Train departed from New Delhi at 19:55 hrs. It travelled through the same route which is followed by the New Delhi – Mumbai Rajdhani Express train No. 12952. It also observed the same permanent and temporary speed restrictions as well as the sectional speeds of Rajdhani Express Train No. 12952. The existing Rajdhani Express takes 15:50 hrs from New Delhi – Mumbai Central.​ Talgo train because of heavy rains enroute and due to point failure at Mathura Junction, reached at 11:36 AM at Mumbai Central. (15:41 hrs) There was water logging beyond Surat between Udvada – Vapi – Bhilad section, which considerably delayed the movement of trains as speed restrictions had to be imposed for safety reasons. Accordingly beyond Surat the Talgo train could not implement its trial schedule because of the reason beyond their control. In anyway from Delhi – Surat Talgo train took around 2 hours less in comparison to Rajdhani Express. The Talgo train fully succeeded in its maiden trial between New Delhi & Mumbai. But for the reasons mentioned above it would have taken approximately 3 hours less than the Rajdhani train in reaching Mumbai Central. It means that it would have reached in 12 hours 47 minutes as claimed and planned. Average Running Speed of Rajdhani Express (New Delhi-Surat) – 89.76 kmph Average Running Speed of Talgo Train (New Delhi-Surat) – 106.52 kmph
Talgo becomes India's fastest train, covering 84 km in 38 minutes! The train consists of nine coaches, two executive class, four chair cars, a cafeteria, a power car and a tail-end coach for staff and equipment.
