Amrit Bharat Train: Features

The Amrit Bharat train, earlier called Vande Sadharan by many in railway circles, is a push-pull train for the common man. The new orange and gray train has a locomotive at each end for “push-pull” operation that allows for higher speeds, therefore reducing travel time. The new Indian Railways train has several new features keeping in mind the comfort of the common man.

The non-AC train will have 22 coaches including 12 second class 3-tier sleeper cars, 8 general second class coaches and two guards coaches. In the guard coaches, one coach has space for women and the other coach has space for disabled passengers. Some of the main features of the train include:

  • Aerodynamically designed WAP5 locomotives at both ends in push-pull configuration (concentric power train set).
  • Jerk-free semi-permanent coupler
  • Maximum permissible speed of 130 kmph
  • Control couplers at the end walls for push-pull operation with locos at both ends of the train.
  • Better design lightweight foldable snack table
  • Fully sealed gangways
  • Mobile charger with convenient holder and foldable bottle holder
  • Aesthetically pleasing and ergonomically designed seats and berths with better color combinations
  • Better cushioned luggage rack
  • Zero Discharge FRP Modular Toilet
  • Aerosol-based fire suppression systems in toilets and electrical cubicles
  • Radium Illumination Floor Strip
  • Faster acceleration for shorter travel times

According to GMBG Mallya of ICF, the advantage of a push-pull train is that its power is twice that of a single train. “We have tried to improve the travel experience for passengers who use non-AC coaches,” Mallya told TOI earlier this year.

The gangways used for movement between coaches have been improved. “Vande (India) has the best gangway. It’s a bit smaller gangway, but it will have all the features of a Vande gangway. Rain water doesn’t come in, dust doesn’t come in. So you can’t go from one coach to another. One can go to the coach without any hindrance,” he explained.
Mallya added that for non-AC train coaches, toilets are usually the weakest link. “The toilets in these trains will be almost at par with Vande (India),” he said.
