India's first locomotive-less train, known as Train 18, breached the 180 kmph speed limit during a test run yesterday. Train 18 is capable of touching 200 kmph provided the rest of Indian Railways' system such as tracks and signals permit.

When this indigenously designed train is made operational, it will become country's fastest train. With 16 coaches, the train will have the same passenger carrying capacity as that of the Shatabdi Express. It has aerodynamically designed driver cabins at both ends for quicker turn-around at destinations.

The train sports an advanced regenerative braking system which saves power. The fully air-conditioned train offers better passenger comfort and safety, as all equipment are fixed under the carriage, so that more space is available on board. General Manager of Integral Coach Factory expressed hope that  'Train 18' will commence its commercial run from January 2019.
