    "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 replace the 30-year-old Shatabdi Express and will run between Delhi and Varanasi.
