印度“Train 18 ”火车在试跑中成功跑出115公里每小时的速度
The Research Designs and Standards Organisation on Monday said the trial run of indigenously developed engineless train -- 'Train 18' -- was successfully conducted up to 115 kmph on tracks in Moradabad division of Northern Railway.
the Train 18 will now be sent to Kota division in West Central Railways for validating its performance at its designed speed of 160 kmph.
据报道，印度自主研发的火车“Train 18 ”在北方铁路局莫拉达巴德路段成功跑出了115公里每小时的速度。
“Train 18 ”将被送往中西铁路局验证其在160公里每小时的最大设计时速下的性能。
Railway ministry is doing really very good
Pappu and slaves cannot digest India developing to new heights. Slaves would still like us to travel in stinking trains that we have been doing since Independence.
Lot of positive development in Railways after this government came to power....Good !
it''s very good initiative taken up by ICF Madras. as Train 18 successfully runs at 115kmph during trials.This will also boost Make in India and sooner or later can come into production of Metro rail.
“Train 18 ”试跑成功跑出115公里每小时的速度，很好！
This train will be put in production in 2025 at 160 kmph, when trains globay would run at at least 500 kmph...
1960 technology of Japan “ Trains running on motors”.
This 16 coach train costs Rs.100 crores , so each coach costs Rs. 6.25 cr. Its true that it needs no separate engine. It is still under testing & needs advanced tracks which are still being laid.Two years ago, a Spanish Co. Talgo had offered its lightweight hi-tech coaches, of proven technology, capable of speeds upto 180 kmph on our EXISTING tracks for Rs.3.5 crores each. These Talgo coaches had successful test runs in India two years ago.Talgo had offerred to manufacture these coaches in India if they got a sufficient order. Local manufacture would have made their coaches even cheaper, almost half of the cost of Train 18 coaches
To run at 160-230 kmh you need special tracks. Just like gatiman also needs special tracks to run at 160kmh. That’s part of the reason why no train in India can run beyond 160kmh. Talgo could hit 180kmh when you run 9 coaches.
Double the number of coaches and no way you can hit that speed. Yes because it’s aluminum it can run faster on the existing tracks. But it’s not practical. Besides it’s 4 inches lower in height and that’s an issue with Indian platforms

You are right about the low height.Talgo had offerred to fix that
If one coach malfunctions, the whole rake becomes unusable temporarily.This would be a problem not just in India,but the world over.But we know that Talgo coaches are operating successfully all over the world,specially in Europe.
atleast now in 72 years of independent India.Hope there will be no subsidies for select class people!!
Pappu''s Pidis will naturally not like India''s self reliance and success. They will bark.
