The brake system of Spanish Talgo train was tested today during its trial run between Mathura and Kosi Kalan station.
“Brakes were applied a couple of times in the Talgo train during its journey between Mathura and Kosi Kalan to note how much time the train takes to stop in case brake is applied before signal,” the ADRM of Agra division of North Central Railway said.
“The distance covered after the application of brakes was also recorded,” he said, adding that the same exercise would be repeated tomorrow.
After the successful launch of semi-high speed Gatimaan Express on Delhi-Agra route in April, Talgo trial is being conducted as part of Railway’s strategy to increase the speed of trains.
Talgo train is expected to be pressed into service on Delhi-Mumbai sector. Talgo train envisages the journey between Delhi and Mumbai can be completed in about 12 hours.
