On Tuesday, the high-speed train Talgo completed its third and final phase of trials from New Delhi to Mumbai, but arrived at its destination over three hours behind schedule.

The train had commenced its final phase trial run from Delhi on Monday at 7:55 PM and arrived in Mumbai Tuesday at 11.40 AM, over three hours behind schedule, a Western railway official said, adding that heavy rains enroute caused the delay.

The light-weight train aims to cut short the time between the two destinations by almost four hours. Presently, super-fast trains such as Rajdhani Express take around 16 hours to traverse the route.

The train consists of nine coaches, two executive class, four chair cars, a cafeteria, a power car and a tail-end coach for staff and equipment.
