Bengaluru :Union Railways Minister Piyush Goel, responding to the high-speed rail track test by the Railway officials, said the journey was "so smooth" that not even a single drop of water drop spilled out of the glass in the speeding train.

The railway minister in a tweet shared a 31-second long video clip showing a glass with water filled to its brim kept on a table in a compartment and not a drop spilling out during the recent trip.

He added that a high speed journey on the Bengaluru-Mysuru rail route was so smooth after intensive track maintenance work that it passed a test where not a drop of water spilled out from a glass kept on a table in a coach.

"The results of intensive track Railway track maintenance carried out between Bengaluru & Mysuru in Karnataka are there for everyone to see," he tweeted on late Friday night.
