Train Number

In the early time Vikramshila ran from Bhagalpur to Patna Junction and from Patna, the boggies of Vikramshila were attached to Magadh Express and the train was then named Magadh Express, which leaves Patna Jn. at 8:00 pm. At that time Poorva Express and Magadh Express were the best trains leaving for New Delhi from Patna. Later on, when Mr. Nitish Kumar became the railway minister of India, he gave Vikramshila its own existence and since then Vikramshila Express uses to run from Bhagalpur to Anand Vihar on its own name. In the mean time, Mr. Kumar introduced Sampoorna Kranti Express from Patna to New Delhi. Both the trains were non stop from Patna to New Delhi (Mughalsarai & Kanpur - technical halts). This was a great relief for the passengers of Bhagalpur, Sultanganj, Bariarpur, Jamalpur Junction, Abhaipur, Kajra, Luckeesarai, Barhiya, Hathidah Junction, Mokama Junction & Barh.
