Presenting you a near futuristic train to have dedicated connection between Varanasi and Jabalpur. This train can be preferred over the weekly MUV-JBP express as it can provide with comfortable, time efficient and moreover an elite journey. ET-ALD electrification will pave the way for this train further. Please rate this train. Suggestions are welcomed!

1. I don't expect any patronage especially when there are enough trains to BSB
2. Too less halts. KTE and MYR must be added
3. Way long rake. Copy the rake of AF-JP Shatabdi instead
4. Way too high speed over the single track of BSB-ALD
Absurd timings. Shatabdi needs to return to the origin the same day
Not flagging for now

Thank you for the suggestions!
I have few a few points on your concerns-
1.) As far as patronage is concerned, I wonder if you could get a seat from JBP-BSB in trains which come from Mumbai or Southern India. They are fully packed! Also the weekly counterpart JBP-MUV proves to be too dull.
2.) As you suggested regarding no. of halts, I have
incorporated KTE, GYN and MUV. I have not considered MYR as STA will act as the serving station.
3.) Yes! I have shortened the rake as of JP-AF Shatabdi.
4.) Well, Shatabdi's are known for speeds. Though, I have reduced the speed on ALD-BSB section to an acceptable range.
5.) As of timings, My train is Tri-Weekly. So the rake leaving on Monday from JBP in afternoon will reach BSB at evening and the same rake will return from BSB in the morning to JBP the next day evening.
I hope you will reconsider your position on this. Thank you :)
