PM Modi to flag off India's first engineless train Vande Bharat Express on February 15 from the New Delhi Railway station.

Train 18 has been manufactured by the Integral Coach Factory, Chennai.

It has now become India's fastest train by hitting speeds of over 180 kmph during a trial run on a section of the Delhi-Rajdhani route.

"The PM will flag off the train at 10 am on February 15 and there will be a function in which he will give a speech as well. It's a matter of great pride for us as this is the Railways' first indigenous train," the official said.

The 16-coach train will continue to run between Delhi and Varanasi.
