Train 18 is the country’s first engineless train that has been manufactured by Integral Coach Factory, Chennai and runs at a high speed of 180kmph during the first trial run on a track between Delhi- Rajdhani route. If the project is a success it will run in place of Shatabdi between the Delhi and Varanasi route.
