The Indian Railways did a trial run of the Spanish Talgo , a light train comsuming 30% less energy , between Bareilly and Moradabad on Sunday. Nine coaches were hauled by a 4,500 HP diesel engine on the 90-km line, with a senior official dubbing it a "smooth ride."

Talgo has a maximum speed of 115 km per hour, compared with the Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani Express' average of 85 kmph. Hamid Akhtar, executive director of Railways' Research Designs & Standards Organisation said there will be three more such runs before any decision is taken.
