IRCTC will now operate its third private train between Indore and Varanasi that will have rakes similar to those of the Humsafar Express. The Railway Board Chairman Vinod Kumar Yadav made this announcement recently.
The IRCTC has started operations of two private trains on two routes, namely Delhi-Lucknow and Ahmedabad-Mumbai in the last six months. Now, the third train between Indore and Varanasi will run three days a week, i.e., two days through Lucknow, and through Prayagraj on the third.
As per the news reports, the third train will have only sleeper coaches, instead of chair cars like the other two private trains. The inaugural run of the train will start on February 20.
