ECoR launched two new trains in Odisha

ECoR launched two new trains in Odisha.

After laying the foundation stone for (the project for) redevelopment of Bhubaneswar railway station, Vaishnaw will flag off Puri-Jaleswar-Puri Passenger Train and Express train between Sambalpur and Shalimar via Talcher-Dhenkanal & Bhadrak.

The trains will be flagged off from Bhubaneswar and Puri stations, ECoR sources said. These trains, introduced from 29th December, will fulfil the aspirations of the people of Dhenkanal, Talcher and Angul belt, for a direct connectivity to Kolkata.

“Both trains will provide facilities to the public of the respective regions for direct journey instead of changing transportation facilities at many intermediate places. Both the New Trains will run as Special trains on their inaugural day, i.e. on 29th December 2022,” an ECoR official said.

The Railway Minister will then proceed to Angul/Talcher where he will inaugurate the Angul – Balaram new line.

This 14 km long new railway line will facilitate transportation of freight, especially coal to the different industries and power houses of the country and will add additional revenue for the Nation, the East Coast Railway (ECoR) stated.

ECoR launched two new trains in Odisha and flagged off by the railway minister Ashwini Vaishnav.
