New Delhi: In a bid to popularise Duronto trains, the Railways have showcased the non-stop super fast train in the trade fair.

The ongoing modernisation and technical upgradation in railways is the central theme of its pavilion this time. Since Duronto is the latest super fast train introduced this year it has generated a lot of interest, said a senior railway official involved with the fair.

Railways Minister Mamata Banerjee has announced the launching of 12 non-stop superfast Duronto Expresses in her budget. Since then four Durontos have been launched from Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi and Pune and rest are to be flagged off in the current fiscal.

A makeshift tunnel has been created for visitors to experience the feeling of going through a tunnel along a track in the railway pavilion.

A reservation counter opened at the railway pavilion is also doing brisk business.

The Railways have been participating in the India International Trade Fair annually for the past several years.
