Jaipur: The North Western Railways (NWR) conducted a successful speed trial on Shekhawati route that is from Jaipur to Reengus on Sunday. The train on this route had been terminated two years ago.

During the trial, it took officials 32 minutes to reach Reengus from Jaipur and the return journey was completed in an hour.

The train engine departed from Jaipur Junction at 11:50 am and covered a distance of 57 kilometers in 32 minutes with a speed of 127 km per hour on Sunday.

Several officials along with Deputy CE Manoj Godar, XEN Rajendra Meena, Avtaar Singh, and Ravi Kulhari were onboard the train.

According to the officials, CRS inspection will be conducted on this route under the supervision of newly appointed DRM Manjusha Jain on April 24 and April 25. The trains on this route will start for the public by May end.

It took officials an hour to cover the distance from Reengus to Jaipur.

The train connectivity on this route was terminated for a long time so the speed of the engine was kept slow and the inspection on other factors was done on the return journey, added officials.

In the near future, the train on this route will run with a speed of 110 km per hour.

The superfast or mail express on this route will cover the distance in 40-45 minutes and the passenger train will take up to 60- 70 minutes.
