Cons of BG/Pros of Standard gauge 1435mm-
(1) BG route shall cost a little more and
(2) may take a bit longer time as Rolling stock has to be developed before the track is commissioned by 2023-24.
(3) Most of the HST network in European countries/ China etc are in standard gauge.
If
...
more...
decision is taken early, the Rolling stock can be developed earlier.
Pros of BG
(1) Inter connectivity with IR network shall ensure the operation of other SHS trains on HST network.
(2) Huge opportunity of operating a large number of HST-cum-Semi-HST trains from a large number of cities is there like
From-Delhi/JU/JP/AII/Rajkot/Bhavnagar/IND etc---[SEMI HIGH SPEED RUN 160 KMPH+ on the tracks upgraded uring the construction of HST]
Via-[Ahmedabad-Baroda-ST-Mumbai]----(HIGH SPEED RUN 320 KMPH on the HST ]
To-Pune/Goa/Manglore/Ernakulam/Kochhi/Kolhapur etc--[SEMI HIGH SPEED RUN 160 KMPH+ on the tracks upgraded uring the construction of HST]
(3) Large number of trains i.e. better utilisation of HS track and much higher revenues can be ensured leading to success of HST project
(4) Large number of people can experience and enjoy the thrill of HST.
(5) Higher carrying capacity of trains possible
(6) BG shall permit further upgradation to higher speeds in future due to better stability with wider gauge.

Sir Russia has 1520mm gauge bullet train. So IR will make a 1676mm gauge bullet train, since it is possible.

Quite possible,wider the gauge, more the stability at higher speeds.
Initial hiccups may be there with first few rakes,(as presently HS rakes for 1676mm has not been developed), which may be rectified in future rakes.
I think Russian HST should be about 250kmph as compared to 320kmph of Shinkanshen bullet trains.

In fact China+Germany are investing (6+3) billions of dollars for a 770km HST project from Moscow to Kazan costing about 21billion dollars, and developing 400kmph trains for the route.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
