The first ever service of the theme-based Bharat Gaurav Train started its journey from Coimbatore North to Sainagar Shirdi yesterday. It was flagged off by the Southern Railway Salem Division Manager Gautam Srinivas.

A release from the Southern Railway says the train is being operated by a private service provider. In its maiden journey, 1100 passengers travelled from Coimbatore to Shirdi.

The firm “South Star Rail” is the registered service provider that operates the train on the route. The Railways say that from the operation of the train, it would get a fixed revenue of 3.34 crore rupees a year.

The private player has refurbished the interiors of the Southern Railway’s coaches.  Indian Railways launched the operation of the theme-based Bharat Gaurav train in November 2021. Its objective was to showcase the country’s rich cultural heritage and magnificent historical places.
