Rewa – Delhi Anand Vihar Express is a daily Superfast Express train of the Indian Railways, running between Rewa, a prominent city of Madhya Pradesh and Anand Vihar Terminal of Delhi. The train originally used to run from New Delhi Railway Station before being shifted to Anand Vihar station on 2 September 2012. The train is operated by the North Central Railway zone of Indian Railways on the section which is part of the busy Howrah–Delhi main line (Grand Trunk section). It is, along with the prestigious Shaan - E - Bhopal Express, one of the "first" ISO 9002 certified trains of India because of its security features and high priority on the Indian Railways. But it takes 2 hours more than Rajdhani Express to cover the same distance. It is also slower than some other Superfast trains in this section, but has one of highest commercial speeds among Non-Rajdhani trains.

The normal locomotive of Rewa Superfast Express is a WAP 5 electric locomotive from GZB shed. However, it may sometimes get a WAP 7 or WAP 4 due to non-availability of a WAP 5.
