Train 18, the NextGen Shatabdi, launched at ICF

Train 18, the much anticipated Indian-made trainset was unveiled to the public by Indian Railway Board chairman Ashwani Lohani.

The gleaming, blue-nosed train has a cone-shaped frontage, similar to a bullet train. The new train comes fitted with amenities on a par with the best in the world — from on-board Wi-Fi to GPS-based passenger information system, ‘touch-free’ bio-vacuum toilets, LED lighting, mobile charging points, and a climate control system that would adjust the temperature according to occupancy and the weather.
