Worldwide Rail Journeys, the promoter of luxury train journeys in India has chartered the Royal Rajasthan on Wheels to launch its new train named ‘Unity Express’.
Inspired by PM Narendra Modi’s dream to build the ‘Statue of Unity’ at Gujarat, the ?Unity Express’, will celebrate the diversity of India’s various states, with state specific themed carriages and cultural shows. The train first trip has been totally sold out to a South African group and will flag off with the new concept for the first time through Rajasthan. Not disturbing the regular itinerary of RROW that runs from October to March, the first rechristened ‘Unity Express’ would be flagged off from New Delhi on March 29, 2015.
For the first phase trial in March the train would cover Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh from New Delhi. The tickets of the train have been totally sold out to people from South Africa and will cover various destinations in Rajasthan over a tour of 5N/6D journey. The tariff for the same would be 625 USD per person per night. In the second phase in November 2015, over a 7N/8D itinerary, the train would cover Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh from New Delhi
