 Train 18 will run from Delhi to Varanasi declared Railway Minister Piyush Goyal . He revealed " the run-time of Train 18 between Delhi and Varanasi will be eight hours, one-and-a-half-times faster than the fastest train on the route."
Although  the railways had been saying that "it had proposed two routes for Train 18-- Delhi to Bhopal and Delhi to Varanasi"-- this is the first time that the route has been officially confirmed.

The Minister revealed , "This train will run between Delhi and Varanasi in eight hours and the fastest train between the two cities takes 11.30 hours."
He added, "We have successfully tested the train and the suggestions are being incorporated. Very soon the train will be dedicated to the nation and we have requested that Prime Minister Narendra Modi flag it off. "
While Mr Goyal refused to confirm the date for the  first run, he assured that it would "begin service soon".
Sources said that the first commercial run of Train 18 would begin next week, just ahead of the Kumbh Mela, which starts in Prayagraj on January 14.

"Train 18 will be flagged off by PM Modi ahead of the Kumbh Mela," the sources said.
