Holi special train 02250/02249 has already been running between Anand Vihar Terminal and Patna.
New Holi special trains will also be running from Patna and Gaya in Bihar to Anand Vihar Terminal in Delhi.
Holi, the festival of colours, was celebrated last week, and now people are heading back from their hometowns to resume work in metropolitan cities. As a result of this movement of people, rail traffic on Mumbai and Delhi routes increases manifold. Getting a confirmed ticket for such destinations, therefore, is almost impossible for passengers. In light of this, the Indian Railways has been running Holi special trains and does not plan to stop operations anytime soon. New Holi special trains will also connect Patna and Gaya in Bihar to Anand Vihar Terminal in Delhi.
