Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Anurag Thakur today flagged off the inaugural run of the Una to Indore express train from the local railway station. The biweekly train service was earlier running between Indore and Chandigarh and would now have an extended route between Chandigarh and Una.

To halt at 5 stations

On its extended route, the train will halt at Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar, Morinda, Rupnagar, Anandpur Sahib and Nangal Dam stations

The train (number 19,308) would start from Una on Fridays and Saturdays at 1.50 pm and reach Indore at 3.05 pm the next day. On its return journey, the train (number 19,307) would start from Indore on Thursdays and Fridays at 5.30 am and reach Una the next day at 8.35 am.

He said that the Union Government had recently sanctioned Rs 47 crore for the development of the Daulatpur Chowk railway station, the last broad gauge station in Himachal Pradesh on the Delhi-Talwara railway line.
