It can be dare said that Vande Bharat trains are unlike any other methods of transportation India has seen, and not just in the railway transportation sector. Vande Bharat services run using the completely indigenously developed and manufactured Train-18 trainsets. The Train-18 project was a milestone, watershed development that changed the perception of train travel among Indians forever. Though it is currently a ultra-premium product, the Train-18/Vande Bharat model has introduced the country to “high-efficiency” train travel that will hopefully percolate downwards. It has also firmly re-established the importance of quality public transport in a time when it is on a wane in the country.
