History[edit]

Vikramshila Express Was Inaugurated on 7 March 1977 between Bhagalpur and New Delhi. After The Introduction of Magadh Express in 1980, Vikramshila ran from Bhagalpur to Patna Junction and from Patna, the coaches of Vikramshila were attached to Magadh Express and the train was then named Magadh Express, which used to leave Patna Jn. at 8:00 pm.

Later on, when Mr. Nitish Kumar became the railway minister of India, he gave back Vikramshila its own existence and since then Vikramshila Express again runs from Bhagalpur to Anand Vihar on its own name.
