Rajdhani and Shatabdi Express which serves as the premium trains in India is now going for a makeover.
The Railway Ministry is set to launch “Operation Swarn” to improve the services in the trains.
Rajdhani and Shatabdi Express are one of the train services in India, which was started for the people who can afford more money to luxurious travel.
It was reported that
after years the train lost its essence and the service became worse with each passing year.
The cleanliness and quality of food suffered a lot, which is one of the main reasons that the Indian Railway authority has taken the decision to give the premium trains in India a new look.
According to reports, in the first phase, Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani Express and Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express was selected by the Indian Railway authority to give a revamp, which will start from September 26.
In a statement, a railway authority officer said quoted, “The Railways have decided to launch Operation Swarn (or ‘gold’) to refurbish its services after several complaints by passengers like delay in train arrival, sanitation, and quality of food”.

A First Look at India’s New High Speed Trains :Indian Railways is preparing to purchase twenty-five E5 Series Shinkansen trainsets from Japan for India’s first High Speed Rail (HSR) project, at an estimated cost that falls just short of 800 million USD.
The new trains will connect Mumbai, the capital city of the State of Maharashtra, with Ahmedabad, the second most populous metropolitan area in India, located in the State of Gujarat. The railway will run along the Arabian Sea coast with stops in Surat and Vadodara, respectively the second and third largest cities in the State of Gujarat. Potentially, the line can be extended from Ahmedabad to New Delhi and from Thane towards Pune and Bengaluru.
new high speed corridor is currently expected to open to the public in 2023. The 508 km distance will be covered in only two hours and seven minutes. The fastest train currently operating between Mumbai Central and Ahmedabad Junction is the Duronto Express, which takes approximately 7 hours running non-stop between the two cities, at a maximum speed of 120 kph.
The E5 series, built by a consortium of Hitachi Rail and Kawasaki Heavy Industries, is operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East) in 10 car trainsets on the Tōhoku Shinkansen line and on the Hokkaido Shinkansen line.
In June 2017 an unnamed senior Indian Railway Ministry official involved in the project provided the press with some insider information regarding the Shinkansen configuration to be utilized in India.
New Bullet Trains To Have Washrooms With Mirrors For Makeup, Breastfeeding Rooms & Baby Toilets
So let’s take the Hokkaido Shinkansen as a reference and have a closer look at the E5 Series, in order to find out what Indian travelers should expect in the near future.
The train car body is built in an aluminum alloy that makes it lighter and allows it to travel up to a maximum speed of 320 km/h (200 mph). The train is 253 meters long, weighs 453.5 tons and is powered by overhead catenary. The rail track gauge is 1,435 mm.
The ten cars can carry a total of 731 seated passengers, in three distinct classes: Ordinary Class (658 seats), Green Car (55 seats) and Gran Class (18 seats).
According to the Ministry official the Indian configuration will have 698 Standard Class seats and 55 Business Class seats, effectively doing away with the Japanese Gran Class.
The Japanese Ordinary Class (equivalent to the Indian Standard Class) is organized in a 3+2 seating arrangement, with a seat pitch of 1,040 mm. Each seat features: an adjustable headrest; a table which folds out from the seat in front; a power outlet.
The Japanese Green Car (equivalent to the Indian Business Class) is organized in a 2+2 row seating arrangement, a seat pitch of 1,160 mm, seat width of 475 mm and a maximum reclining angle of 31 degrees. Each seat features: a large adjustable headrest that incorporates a reading light; a large table which folds out from the seat in front; a power outlet that allows plugging in a computer or a mobile phone while traveling; a tray for drinks that can be stowed away in the armrest.
The Japanese Gran Class, apparently eliminated in the Indian configuration, is designed to be even more comfortable and luxurious than the Green Car.
The Tōhoku Shinkansen Ordinary Class, Green Car and Gran Class interiors can be viewed with 360 degree panoramic imagery on Google Maps. It’s well worth having a look at them.
In terms of on-board facilities the Shinkansen is designed to ensure a barrier-free and user-friendly travel experience.
The Indian configuration will see lavatories and urinals installed in alternate train cars: lavatories in cars number 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9; urinals in cars number 2, 4, 6 and 8. There will be separate lavatories for men and women.
There will be two large and accessible restrooms, fitting a toilet with improved handles to support electric wheelchair users and other physically-challenged customers.
One multipurpose room will be equipped with multi-functional furniture which can be folded into a cot bed and a bench — this space can be used for instance for changing or breastfeeding.
Low sinks and baby toilet seats will also be provided for children.
Women only lavatories will be equipped with triple mirrors, toilets with boards for changing clothing and more.
All cabins and restroom stalls will be equipped with emergency call devices for enhanced security. Security cameras will operate together with emergency call devices in all cabins.
Business class will provide special luggage space for passengers. The project was approved in May 2014 by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a meeting with the Chairman of the High Speed Rail Corporation of India, Satish Agnihotri. The feasibility study on the project was carried out in July 2015 by RITES, Italferr and Systra. The governments of India and Japan signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 12 December 2015 to implement the corridor.
“PM Narendra Modi’s economic policies are like Shinkansen – high speed, safe and reliable and carrying many people along” – Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe, 12 December 2015
But India’s high speed vision does not end here, the country’s bright future is being planned today. The Diamond Quadrilateral project will establish an HSR network connecting the four Indian metro cities: Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai.

मीटर लंबाई और 3.24 मीटर की चौड़ाई है कोच की
टन वजन है एसी चेयर कार वाले एलएचबी वैगन का
किमी प्रति घंटे की रफ्तार से दौड़ेंगे एलएचबी कोच
लागत आती है एक एलएचबी कोच बनाने में
पुरी-अहमदाबाद एक्सप्रेस (18405) 14 जून से एलएचबी कोच के साथ दौड़गी तो 16 जून से अहमदाबाद-पुरी एक्सप्रेस में इन एलएचबी कोचों को लगाया जाएगा। इसी प्रकार, पुरी-हावड़ा एक्सप्रेस (12888) और हावड़ा-पुरी एक्सप्रेस (12887) ट्रेनों को एलएचबी कोच के साथ क्रमश: 18 और 19 जून से चलाया जाएगा। अभी इन गाड़ियों में एलएचबी कोचइस समय राजधानी एक्सप्रेस, पुरुषोत्तम एक्सप्रेस, दुरंतो एक्सप्रेस और शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस जैसी गाड़ियों में एलएचबी कोच लगाए गए हैं।
भुवनेश्वर एजेंसीट्रेनों की गति और यात्रियों की सुरक्षा बढ़ाने के लिए रेलवे उन्नत तकनीक वाले लिंक हॉफमैन बुश (एलएचबी) कोच लगा रहा है। इसकी शुरुआत 14 जून से पुरी-अहमदाबाद एक्सप्रेस से होगी।अभी इंटीग्रल कोच फैक्ट्री (आईसीएफ) के इस्तेमाल वाले डिब्बों से ट्रेनों की गति सीमित है। लेकिन रेलवे इन पारंपरिक कोचों के स्थान पर एलएचबी कोच लगाएगा जिससे ट्रेनों की गति काफी बढ़ जाएगी। साथ ही यात्रियों की सुरक्षा को भी पहले से अधिक मजबूत बनाया जा सकेगा। एलएचबी कोच एंटी टेलीस्कोपिक तकनीक से लैस हैं, जो किसी हादसे के समय कोचों के एक-दूसरे पर चढ़ने या पटरी से उतरने से रोकती है। रेलवे के अनुसार, ये कोच अधिक यात्रियों को ले जाने की क्षमता विकसित करने के हिसाब से बनाए गए हैं। वर्तमान में इस्तेमाल हो रहे सभी पारंपरिक कोच को चरणबद्ध तरीके से एलएचबी कोच में बदला जाएगा।40 नए यात्री डिब्बे जुड़ेंगे : यात्रियों की सुविधा के लिए नई साज-सज्जा और उन्नत सुविधा वाले करीब 40 हजार डिब्बे रेलवे के बेड़े में जुड़ेंगे। इस काम पर 8,000 करोड़ रुपये की लागत आने का अनुमान है। इन कोच में मजबूत कपलर लगाए जाएंगे ताकि दुर्घटना के समय बोगियों के पलटने का खतरा कम हो। यात्रियों के बैठने की व्यवस्था को बेहतर बनाया जाएगा और शौचालय भी आधुनिक होंगे। इस काम पर प्रति कोच 30 लाख रुपये तक खर्च आयेगा और अगले पांच साल में काम पूरा हो जाएगा। रेल मंत्रलय के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी ने बताया कि चालू वित्त वर्ष में 1,000 डिब्बे जोड़े जाएंगे। इसके अलावा सभी परंपरागत डिब्बों को सेंटर बफलर कपलर की सुरक्षा से लैस करने की तैयारी है।
