A direct train between Sikar town and national capital Delhi on broad gauge tracks is introduced by the Indian Railways.
The train between Sikar and Delhi’s Sarai Rohilla station will take two hours less than the travel time on the metre-gauge line. The Sikar-Delhi train will run via Churu and Bikaner, thereby connecting a majority of towns in Shekhawati region to Delhi, including Jhunjhunu, Fatehpur, Churu, Sadulpur, and Bikaner, as informed by the Minister of States for Railways, ‘Rajen Gohain’ after flagging off a train between Sikar and Churu on the broad gauge tracks.
This connectivity will be proved as a boon for the tourists travelling to Rajasthan as now they would not have to stop at Jaipur to reach the magnificent havelis and frescoed region of Shekhawati. This train will make it easy for foreign tourists to visit Shekhawati region, ‘havelis’ of Shekhawati and other monuments as they are a centre of attraction for tourists in Rajasthan.
