Fewer halts, higher speeds: Indian Railways set to roll out clone trains from today
The Indian Railways is all set to roll out 40 clone trains on high demand routes from Monday. A senior official has said that the clone trains will arrive at the destinations two-three hours before the corresponding parent train.
The 40 clone trains are primarily 3-AC trains with fewer halts, higher speeds and a departure time before the parent train. The official said the clone trains are like a boon for the passengers who have to travel in an emergency or have made last-minute plans.
Their stoppages will be limited to operational halts or the Divisional Headquarters en route, if any, thereby reducing their journey time, the official said.
