Talks are already going on in this website about LHB-iasation of HWH RNC Shatabdi Exp & subsequently allotting the ICF Rake to HWH-NJP Proposed Shatabdi.I have two questions:-
(i)Will the Shatabdi Run full?I think not many people of the region,through which the Shatabdi is expected to run,can afford a Costly Ride of Shatabdi.
(ii)Is it really possible to Run a Shatabdi b/w 567 km within 16-17 Hrs including the Return trip,where it'll be hauled by a Diesel Engine & the route b/w NFK & SNT,has lot of Engineering Problems,Presently the fastest Darjeeling Mail
takes almost 3.25 Hrs to cover 180 km MLDT-BHP,with Avg Speed lesser than 60 kmph.
Max permissible time schedule can be
I cant think a faster Shatabdi in this route.Is it permissible to reach NJP such an Odd Hrs...Then the occupancy is surely going to be far lesser.
Also there are frequent RRI work going on b/w Bonidanga-Gumani...That will make the Shatabdi diverted via AZ for those days,which will delay it further.Regular Blocks are taken by KIR division also(b/w MFA-RNI) in DayTime,when the movement is lesser of M/E Trains.Is the Shatabdi going to be a reality?

between Khana junction to Malda Town ,Sainthia to Rampurhat strecth is the most fastest compare to others.28km distance generaly coovered in max 22min with top speed running near about 100kmph and average speed above 75kmph.All others section permits 100kmph ,but the main problem faced in signaling problem due to goods trains,local trains,traffic block.
we always hear traffick block for upgradtion,but we dont know when the Malda to Barddhaman full strech will be improved.If it improved then it is possible cover this distance in less than 3hr compare to current near about 3 hr 45min.
