Talgo completes third Delhi-Mumbai trial

The much-awaited Spanish-made Talgo high-speed train reached the Mumbai Central Terminus from New Delhi on its third and final trial run, an official said on Tuesday.

The train, which left New Delhi on Monday evening, completed the trial run despite delays on account of heavy rains which flooded railway tracks in the Gujarat-Maharashtra border area.

The Talgo, with nine lightweight coaches, is expected to cut down travel time between New Delhi and Mumbai by around four hours - from the existing 16 to 12 hours - though exact schedules are not yet finalized.

The train left New Delhi at 7.55 p.m. on Monday evening and reached Mumbai Central shortly after 11 a.m., against the expected arrival time of 8.31 a.m., travelling at speeds averaging 130 kmph.
