The Prestigious Train Of ECR:-Sampoorna Kranti Express.
#History:- The service began running on February 16,
2002, and is one of the fastest train services
India, traversing the 999 km distance in
under fourteen and half hours, which is
faster than the previous Magadh Express
Patna-New Delhi service and the Shramjeevi
express on the same route.
The train makes only two stops between
Patna and New Delhi: at Kanpur Central and
Mughalsarai covering the distance of 998 km
in thirteen hours and thirty five minutes, and

longer on the journey from Patna to New
Delhi. The train is hauled by powerful WAP4
Engine. It has LHB sleeper and AC coaches in
the new Rajdhani livery. It is one of the
longest trains in India along with Prayagraj
Express and Karnatka Express. In peak
seasons two bogies are attached to ease the
extreme rush during the period making it of
twenty four bogies. It is among the top-priority
trains in Indian-railways.
