'Mother Express', an exhibition train to commemorate the birth centenary of Mother Teresa, was on Thursday inaugurated at the Sealdah station here by Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee.

The train that focuses on the life, work and message of Mother Teresa, would travel all over the country in the next six months, Eastern railway sources said.

The train comprises three air-conditioned coaches, in which photographs, write-ups on the life and message of Mother Teresa have been kept for public viewing.

The Missionaries of Charity helped the railways by supplying photographs and various materials.

The train will leave for Baruipur tomorrow and later visit Krishnagar, Kolkata, Bandel, Howrah, Asansol, Durgapur, Bolpur and Malda before leaving for Katihar in Bihar.
