Today (02:00)   This Train In China Passes Right Through An Apartment Building, Is Effing Amazing

Your eyes are not deceiving you: The photo above is of a real train crossing through the middle of an apartment building. Like, on purpose.
If you're shaking your head and calling bull on this one, believe it. This is the Chongqing Rail Transit No. 2 line, a light railway train in China. It passes through the inside of a 19-story residential high-rise every single day, according to People's Daily.
This train is part of the transportation system in Chongqing, a 31,000-square-mile city in the southwest region of the country that has
a population of about 49 million people. As you can imagine, that's a lot of people crammed inside a small urban space.
So city planners had to come up with an efficient solution when a rubber tire light rail system was introduced, according to China’s Transportation Infrastructure Office. This type of train has "a small turning radius" and a "great climbing ability," which means it can maneuver through Chongqing’s smaller streets and heavily packed spots. The construction was meant to fuse the rail system with the surrounding environment. So during the planning process for the apartment complex, the developers coordinated with urban planners on a design that would allow for the train to pass right through the building.
According to People's Daily, they even built a railway station on the sixth through eighth floors of the complex. Residents can literally hop on the train directly from the Liziba station in their own apartment building.
And wait, there's more: If you think that hearing a train cross through your building sounds like a nightmare, you'll be glad to learn that Chongqing Rail Transit No. 2 line is famous for being one of the quietest rail lines. How quiet? About the same as a dishwasher.

Hi Freinds...
Actually I regularly follow up with All concerned GM & RM for 12561- SS SF Exp. I observed that if we given it same slot of 12581 and speed up 12581 by 40 Mnts then it will make some difference about the punctuality.Schedule as follows.
For 12581
MUV - 23:20 PM & Rest remain the same :- Tran always rchd ALY
30 to 40 Mnts Before Time.
For 12561 :
Jaynagar : 11:50 AM
CPR : 18:10 :- slot is empty btwn17:00 to 18:40 (CPR-GCT)
BSB : 22:20 :- Slot Empty btwn 21:55 to 23:20 (BSB-ALD)
ALD : 01:00 : No Overtake Required btwn 01:00 to 2:45 (ALD- CNB)
CNB : 03:25 :- No Overtake Required btwn (CNB- NDLS)
NDLS :09:50
Plz Suggest if any correction required.

even with 130, it will not be ahead of Rajdhani gang.
either it has to arrive by 8-8:30 am, else after 12:15 (at NDLS arrival)

It is better that divert it Tri-weekly by GKP. with aggressive TT
Till CPR : Same
SV : 21:30
GKP : 23:50
SCC : 04:40
: 09:00
NDLS :11:20
It will help to Avoide at least 3 days of rescheduling of 12562 and improve punctuality also.

I agreed in my post...
Rajdhani gang will Overtake it,but do you think if it get 130 MPS then how It will Overtake by Rajdhani...After depart Right Time ALD 1:45 Hrs gap between 12561 and Rajdhani Gang....As per My knowledge rajdhani not cross speed of 140-145 then how they can overtake.
After crossed CNB 6 to 6:30 Hrs is enough time to reached NDLS for 130 MPS Train (Including Rajdhani Gang OT)

इस खबर से जयपुर वाले थोडा नाखुश ज़रूर हुए होंगे, और लखनऊ वाले उतने ही ज्यादा खुश | पर ये सहायता जो मिली है लखनऊ डबल डेकर को, सराहनीय है |
रोजाना चल सकेगी, सुबह 5 बजे ट्रेन पकड़ने की हडबडाहट नहीं होगी, 8 बजे अब आराम से पकड़ी जा सकेगी | थोडा बेहतर ये होता की वापसी में ट्रेन 2 बजे न चलके थोडा पहले चल पाती तो रात में ज्यादा देर से लखनऊ न पहुचती | मन में सवाल बस ये है की दोनों में से किसने अपना रेक दुसरे जोन तो ट्रान्सफर कर दिया ? NER ने या NWR ने, RSA तो तब ही मुमकिन है, और ट्रेन कहाँ से चलेंगी ? नई दिल्ली स्टेशन से ?

न्यूज़ आ रही है क्यूंकि NER बहुत प्रयास भी करता रहा है इस विषय में | ज़रूरत उसे है तो निरंतर प्रयत्न किये है उसने, बस कुछ महत्वपूर्ण कार्य होने बाकि थे, सीआरअस से हरी झंडी नहीं मिल पा रही थी, रेक को आनंद विहार से सराय रोहिल्ला ले जाने के वैक्लपिक मार्ग चुना जाना था, उस मार्ग का सीआरस होना था, और अब जब ये बहुत हद तक वास्तिविकता के करीब है, खबरें फिर से अख्बर्रों में आने लगी हैं |

Will it run as LJN-JP DD or two separate trains nos. Better for passengers that both are merged so that a person who needs to travel makes only single reservation in one train. And yes it will have LOCO change at NDLS or DEE right.
