The Bhagalpur – Anand Vihar Terminal Garib Rath Express is a superfast train of Indian Railways which connects Bhagalpur, an important town of Bihar and Delhi, the capital of India. It is one of the premier trains on this route. Before inauguration, this train ran between Rajendra Nagar and New Delhi. The train is hauled by WDM 3A locomotive of Jamalpur Shed from Bhagalpur to Kiul junction, as the Sahibganj Loop is not electrified yet. From Kiul Junction to Anand Vihar Terminal, a WAP 7 locomotive of Ghaziabad Shed puts it into action. The train comprises 13 Third AC coaches, 3 AC Chair Cars & 2 End-On-Generation Vans.
