New train connecting Varanasi to Vadodara from tomorrow


Varanasi: The Railways is starting a new weekly train from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Parliamentary constituency Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh to Vadodara in his home state Gujarat, from tomorrow. Mr Modi was elected both from Varanasi and Vadodara in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, but he later left Vadodara and retained the Varanasi seat. The Mahamana Express, named after Mahamana Madan Mohan Malviya, founder of the BHU, would be the second train from the city. The first Mahamana Express, with plush interiors, all built under the 'Make in India' project, is currently running between Varanasi and New Delhi. Railways sources here today said the new train will start from Varanasi Cantt railway station, having stop overs at Cheoki in Allahabad, Jabalpur and Itarsi in Madhya Pradesh, Bhusawal and Jalgaon in Maharashtra and Surat and Vadodara in Gujarat. The Varanasi-Vadodara Mahamana Express will leave Varanasi at 0615 hrs on Friday and reach Varodara on Sunday morning. From Vadodara, the train will run every Wednesday. It has one AC-1st class coach, two coaches, eight sleeper coaches, four general coaches, one pantry car and two guard brake vans. There is no AC-3 tier coach in the train.
