Due to diversion in NDLS-TDL section, What about passengers boarding from intermediate stations? Are their reservations cancelled or shifted to later station(TDL in this case) or they are allowed to board from any station in diverted route?
Can they board from starting station? My friend has reservation in 12420(Gomti Exp) from GZB-CNB but due to diversion he has decided to board from NDLS. Is he within legal rules to do that and paying difference in sum of ticket would be enough to carry on the journey? Train is rescheduled to depart at 14:30. A quick suggestion from experts would be of great help. Thanks!

In case of e-ticket booked through IRCTC. Will the same rule apply(boarding from next available point) or ticket will get automatically cancelled?

Acc to European std, High-Speed Train is one which attains :
200 kph on existing track &
250 kph on newly laid track
Source: wiki
So, if 200 kph is HST than 160-200(excl) kph
can be considered semi-HST.....

dt statement was sarcasm....but now i stand for it.
by d way wat abt the sf category in European standard any idea sir.
if u come from Interlaken to FRA the max speed of train is 300kmph and avg speed was 150-155kmph(xcept some places where it tchs below 120kmph) through the journey which i observe in my 2014 trip.
and there is nothing like
semi high high speed in Europe but yes they collaborated with our country to develop SEMI HIGH speed train and to sold there old technology as usual they did.

Re# 1950934-39            Tags   Past Edits
Well your Ist remark is rather ironic nd contradictory but nyway,
going from suisse to FRA one is bound to see variations in speed due to mountaneous region(though I havnt been dere), same happens if one takes Paris-Milan TGV(exp vividly by my cousin), run is mostly 300 kph till Lyon but dramatically reduces post that when it encounters hill section(Alps) along border and once on Italian plains it rarely crosses 250 mark(even though Italy has 300+ tracks).
Certainly not every train in Europe is HST/semi-HST(semi-HST has more of a symbolic value)
sf, I don't think dere are any pan-european stds for it as they are for HST...
Regarding selling old technology, buddy dats a hard Indian fact dat is true for most of engg. fields except d ones which we were not given(ICBMs, nukes etc.)

Re# 1950934-40            Tags   Past Edits
Nothing is contradictory its depends on person to person how they interpret the things if u think dn sorry bro cant help.
and yes TGV easily tchs 300+ (fortunately experienced) and ask ur csn/s abt ICe he will tell u the speed of dt regions which i mentioned specially bern to FRA or vice versa..and again there is nothing symbolic or any written things for Semi high speed in European country like here we have.
and regarding selling old tech. yes its hard fact and i also accepted it and written in my
last blog(again its depends on person how they interpret)

First spotted this phenomenon in 2014 on my trip to GWL by 12280, almost every morning arrival train had P7 then which was definitely more than what one sighted at NDLS at that time......was simply overwhelmed!!!

Most of the P7 White stallins that cna be found @ NZm would be of LGD as most of the south bound trains were takes care by it....and then the home shed locos like GZB/TKD but not much @ NZM bur @NDLS..you can find many many of these from these GZB and TKD sheds

I was comparing air fares between metros (Mumbai-Delhi, Kolkata- Delhi, Chennai-Delhi, Bangalore-Delhi etc) and found out that even fares for travel dates of just 1 week in advance right now are almost equal to 2A fares on Rajdhanis and slightly above normal 2A fares. If you book more in advance, you can even get cheaper fares. Given this scenario, why would anyone travel by train (I am not talking about intermediate passengers) when they can fly and save 90% of the time for almost the same fare. Even 3A passengers can pay slightly more and fly. The Indian government should now focus on aviation as much as they do on railways as air travel is the way of the future. Aviation should now be given lot of importance and rules and regulations should be changed such that it favors air travel. Railways is also important, no doubt.

Re# 1875675-21            Tags   Past Edits
3A are bulk carriers in AC travel. As long as govt keeps enough difference between fares of 3A and flights, railways will have advantage. Having said that
I think govt. needs to take holistic approach in developing transport sector airways, railways & roadways such that they complement each other. There can be a transport secretary under which coordination among various bodies can take place. So we can develop highways/expressways, high speed/semi-high speed rail, big modern airports for metro cities as well as no frill airports for medium & small cities.
We should move
furiously in capacity augmentation in railways(new lines, electrification, gc, doubling/tripling etc.) as well as increase in speed, a semi-high speed diamond grid(160-200 kmph) can do wonders for pan India connectivity.
Typically for metro cities(population 50 lac+) which have distance of 500-700 km we can plan High speed rail(Bullet train) for future when our present and planned airport capacities saturate. Many studies show that upto distance of 700 km high speed rail can compete with airways and can divert most of passengers to itself. For distance more than 1000 km airways gains significantly.
For distance upto 200-250 km it is found expressways are best mode for high speed travel. So routes like Delhi-Jaipur, Delhi-Chandigarh etc. should be developed.
