Indian Railways names Haridwar Mail as Yoga Express
Indian Railways has named Haridwar Mail as Yoga Express with an immediate effect.
In this regard the train No 19031/19032 Ahmedabad-Haridwar-Ahmedabad famously known as Haridwar Mail has been christened as Yoga Express.
This decision was taken by Indian Railways before celebration of first ‘International Yoga Day’ on 21st June which will be observed as global event.
However, the train timings and its composition have not been changed. Yoga Express run between Ahmedabad (Gujarat) and Haridwar (Uttarakhand) on daily basis covering 1208 km distance in 26 hours 05 mins.
The train has number 19031 from Ahmedabad to Haridwar and number 19032 in the reverse direction. Its average speed is below 55 km/hr. The train also has a stopover at Gandhinagar which was added in 2009 Railway Budget.
