Special Additions to Jammu-Srinagar Vande Bharat Express For Tackling Extreme Cold Conditions

The upcoming Jammu-Srinagar Vande Bharat Express, which will travel on one of the Indian Railways’ most awaited train lines, would bring the Jammu and Kashmir areas closer together. The train will travel over the 272-kilometer Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link (USBRL), which is still under construction in parts. The route will include many world-first infrastructure projects, such as the world’s tallest rail bridge over the Chenab River and the world’s longest tunnel. However, the route’s difficulties do not stop with the harsh terrain.

Extreme weather is another major concern for Indian Railways, and it will become a problem once the Jammu-Srinagar Vande Bharat Express is operational. To overcome and tackle the extreme weather conditions and ensure Indian Railways build speedy connections between key cities, the Integral Coach Factory (ICF) Chennai is developing special Vande Bharat Express trains that can withstand the region’s sub-zero temperatures. 

According to the sources, Integral Coach Factory (ICF)  wants to install Vande Bharat trains with additional features such as heating supplies within their cabins. There will be specialized pipes designed to keep water lines from freezing and perhaps breaking. This initiative is part of ICF’s aim to design and produce several Vande Bharat train types.

Vande Bharat train repair facilities are being built in Badgam so that once the railway line is open, Vande Bharat trains may go to Srinagar, according to Ashwini Vaishnaw sai. He also stated that Vande Bharat trains will run on the new USBRL on the line virtually immediately.

The Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link Project is an important railway line being built by Indian Railways to connect Kashmir Valley with the rest of India. While the railway already travels to Udhampur, it is the final place in J&K to which a train from the rest of India may travel. The Kashmir Valley, on the other hand, has a fully operational 118-kilometer railway line between Banihal and Baramulla.

The Indian Railways is constructing a 114-kilometer-long Udhampur-Banihal connection, which will include the world’s tallest railway bridge, the Chenab Bridge, to connect the Udhampur and Baramula sections. “We hope to have Jammu-Srinagar connectivity completed by December or January,” Ashwini Vaishnaw said.

“Once the Kashmir Valley is linked to the Indian railway network, the journey from Jammu to Srinagar will be faster and more comfortable for passengers.” “The journey from Jammu to Srinagar by new railway link is expected to take 3.5 hours,” Vaishnaw said, adding that Vande Metro service will run between Srinagar and Jammu towns, with trains running at a certain frequency, according to the sources.
