外文标题：Train from Spain: Talgo to run trial runs of faster trains in India
Modi government has given an in-principle nod for Madrid-based locomotive-maker Talgo to undertake trial runs of its lighter and faster trains that could cut travel time between Mumbai and Delhi from 17 hours to 12 hours without overhauling India's ageing rail tracks.
Talgo Chief executive officer Jose Maria Oriol said they are hopeful of bringing their trial train to India by October or early November at their own cost and risk to demonstrate its advantages.
Talgo的首席执行官Jose Maria Oriol表示希望今年10月或11月初自费把试跑列车带到印度来展示其优点。
A formal nod is all that is awaited to start the process for shipping the train from Spain to India.
'Now they want to see it at work in India,' he said. 'Of the 60,000 km of railway tracks in India, some would be upgraded, but most would remain as it is. That's where we can make a difference, by increasing the speed of the train without changing the track infrastructure,' Oriol said.

This is better option than bullet train. In bullet train our existing infrastructure becomes obsolete and seperate budgets and rolling stock have to be prepared for two different kinds of train tracks.
Indian railways needs to be badly upgraded. thanks for Modi Govt to looking into this.

They will not change any of the rail track which says that nothing will change. This is a waste of money.
