Maharashtra: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to flag off two Vande Bharat trains on February 10. The two Vande Bharat trains between Mumbai-Pune-Solapur and Mumbai-Nashik Road-Sainagar Shirdi will depart from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus.
The Vande Bharat train was recently observed during test runs in the western ghats, where additional locomotives are typically used to support trains. However, India’s indigenously designed semi-high speed train effortlessly navigated the steepest ghats.
