Amrit Bharat is the latest category of superfast passenger trains equipped with the LHB push-pull system. However, these trains do not have air conditioning.
Amrit Bharat Express has a striking orange and grey colour combination.
These trains are featuring aerodynamically designed locomotives, said the railway officials.
The train has a WAP5 engine at either end, allowing push-pull operation, faster acceleration, and shorter travel times.
Amrit Bharat Express has eight general second-class coaches for unreserved passengers, twelve second-class 3-tier sleeper coaches and two guard compartments.
The trains have improved facilities, including beautifully designed seats, better luggage racks, mobile charging points, LED lights, CCTV, etc.
Additionally, PM Modi flagged off six latest Vande Bharat Trains, contributing to expanding the country's railway network.
