Day After Buffalo Hit, Vande Bharat Train Now Hits Cow, Minister Says The Train Is Strong
On Thursday, some buffaloes struck the Vande Bharat Express as it travelled between Mumbai Central and Gandhinagar Capital, causing very minimal damage.
When some buffaloes approached the moving train between the stations of Batwa and Maninagar at 11:15 a.m., the incident occurred.
The Vande Bharat Express' engine sustained damage, which was fixed by railroad workers. The incident didn't result in any injuries.
On schedule, the Vande Bharat Express departed Gandhinagar Capital bound Mumbai Central.
The Vande Bharat Express train's trip duration was substantially shortened by the Western Railway (WR) zone beginning on October 5. Gandhinagar-bound train will arrive at Mumbai Central 20 minutes early.
On September 30, 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi signalled the start of the renovated and new Vande Bharat Express between Gandhinagar Capital and Mumbai Central.
According to the Ministry of Railways, the Vande Bharat Express has travel classes similar to those on the Shatabdi Train but with better amenities. It can travel at a top speed of 160 kmph.
The recently launched Gandhinagar Capital–Mumbai Central Vande Bharat Express serves a nutritious, low-calorie regional meal that is rich in millet. The specially created meal for the Vande Bharat Train follows the theme of the following year, 2023, which will be observed globally as the International Year of Millets.
The Vande Bharat Express' main systems were created and assembled in India, in line with Prime Minister Modi's initiative to "Make in India."
The Railways have stated that the impact of this train, which meets international standards for performance, safety, and passenger comfort while costing less than half of international pricing, has the potential to revolutionise the rail industry worldwide.
The train is the first semi-highspeed train in India and has top-notch amenities for passengers.
