Indian Railways is scheduled to start trial runs of short-distance Vande Metro trains in July, 2024, followed by testing the sleeper version of Vande Bharat next month. The Vande Metro trains will operate on routes spanning 100 to 250 kilometers, whereas the Vande Bharat Sleeper trains will be used for routes exceeding 1,000 kilometers in length.

As per officials, the Vande Metro trains will link approximately 124 cities, with identified routes such as Lucknow-Kanpur, Agra-Mathura, Delhi-Rewari, Bhubaneswar-Balasore, and Tirupati-Chennai. 

Operating on existing railway tracks, these air-conditioned trains will serve passengers traveling between major urban centers and adjacent satellite towns, with a primary focus on accommodating more passengers in the unreserved category. According to an official, these trains are designed to have quick acceleration and will make frequent stops. Each train will be equipped with 12 coaches containing large automatic doors and side seats, providing additional standing room for passengers. If necessary to accommodate more passengers, these trains can be expanded to include up to 16 coaches.

As part of their efforts to upgrade train infrastructure, officials have revealed plans to introduce 50 push-pull variant Amrit Bharat trains during the current fiscal year. These trains are intended to provide affordable long-distance travel options for passengers.The first train of this kind was launched on the route between Delhi and Ayodhya. These trains feature engines at both the front and rear.

 The official mentioned that upcoming Amrit Bharat trains will have a modern, cone-shaped front inspired by European train designs. These redesigned trains are expected to be introduced by 2026, with a goal of deploying approximately 400 of them in the future.
