JAIPUR, April 12, 2012, DHNS:

The much awaited double-decker air-conditioned train between Jaipur and Delhi is all set to have its maiden run within a few days.

The air-conditioned wagons for the train reached Jaipur on Wednesday evening and the authorities of north western railways (NWR) will give the green signal to its maiden run after the test run between Jaipur and Delhi Sarai Rohilla.

The train will replace the Jaipur-Delhi non-stop special train. It will have stops at Gurgaon, Delhi Cant and Delhi Sarai Rohilla at the same timings. The train will leave Jaipur at 6 am and reach Sarai Rohilla in Delhi by 10:30. It will return at 5: 35 pm to reach Jaipur at 10: 05pm.
