Southern Railway to launch its first clone train service from Sep 21


  • CNM Reporter

Indian Railways introduced the concept of Clone trains which are duplicate trains on high demand routes, with 40 pairs of new special trains or ‘clone’ trains from 21st September 2020. This was the first time that the Indian Railways’ ran 40 ‘clone’ or duplicate trains on high-demand routes where the original trains on the route are full and passengers are waitlisted.
