New Delhi. In view of the increasing popularity of Vande Bharat trains across the country, preparations are underway to derail more semi-high speed trains. Not only this, there are also plans to run Vande Bharat trains with sleeper coaches. Tenders are also being given to companies for this. Vande Bharat trains with sleeper coaches are being prepared to run at a speed of 220 km per hour. According to experts, semi-high speed Vande Bharat Express trains will run in future instead of trains like Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duranta.
