Vande Bharat fans were thrilled when Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw shared the 'sleeper version' of Vande Bharat trains on his social media on Wednesday. He also said that they will be introduced in early 2024. The new concept train will have bigger pantries and washrooms, and as per reports, they will also be more eco-friendly. 

Meanwhile, the response he received on the social platform X wasn't all positive. While many said that the photos of the upcoming train look 'fascinating,' just awesome,' 'amazing' and more, many also commented that they look far too unrealistic and seems like a PR exercise. A few also gave feedback on the lines of 'Please improve the timing first. For short distance journeys also sometimes trains are being late by three hours.' 'Please include the width and length of the side berth,' 'Upgrade the existing trains with reduced run time,' were also some of the comments posted under the pictures.
