The Spanish-made Talgo high-speed train completed its Delhi-Mumbai final trial run in less than 12 hours.

 
"The train left from New Delhi at 2.45 p.m. and reached Mumbai in 11 hours 42 minutes, two minutes ahead of its time that was 11.44 p.m," a Railway Ministry official was quoted by news agency IANS as saying.
 
The Railway Ministry took to twitter and said: "In a big boost to IR's dreams of semi-high (speed), Talgo's train completed Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani route trial in less than 12 hours."
 
Congratulating the railways team, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu wrote: "A major achievement for our team. We are working on increasing speed, reducing travel time using innovative means."
