Indian Railways will go for global shopping to acquire high speed locomotives with a Rs 500 crore project to run trains at 200 km per hour on Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Kolkata routes.
Speed is the latest matra for railways as it is going ahead with the action plan to upgrade Delhi-Kolkata and Delhi-Mumbai rail corridors enabling the track fit for 200 kmph train run.
“We will float the global tender for acquiring 10 high speed electric locomotives, which can haul trains at 200 kmph and beyond, from the market shortly,” said a senior Railway

Ministry official.
At present, Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains are running up to 130 kmph. Only one train, Gatimaan Express, is running at 160 kmph between Delhi and Agra.
“The transfer of technology of the high power locomotives and its maintenance will be the responsibility of the successful bidder, besides supplying 10 locos to railways,” said the official.
The Rs 500 crore project involves purchase of high speed locomotives, transfer of technology and maintenance for 13 years as per the bidding requirement.
The high power locomotives are expected to haul 22-24 coaches train at 200 kmph on Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Kolkata routes to reduce the travel time.
In order to match the loco capacity, railways has started the manufacturing of Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches with speed potential of 200 kmph.
The high speed LHB coaches are about to be turned out from Rail Coach Factory at Kapurthala.
Besides Talgo coaches, which are also meant for higher speed on the existing tracks, are likely to be hauled with these high speed locomotives.

Shouldn't this train be extended to Bangalore/Mysore with bit of speeding up ?
Will be an excellent Alternative for Prashanti Express and KondaVeendu Express.

Then would be good in a way. More people from the YA-NDL route would be using the train, then need for more SLs. Conversion to ICF coaches will get the train UR coaches too.

Entry# 2215707            Tags   Past Edits
This train can be a great success only if some consideration is taken like- (1) Extreme late departure from Visakhapatnam like around late night 11:30-11:55PM, so that it reaches Araku after 3AM as major booking is from Araku side. (2) Some more halts needs to be added like Borra Guhhalu, SHP, etc. This train can be a great success if these things taken into consideration. It needs kirandul extension even

3 UR + 3 SL. 1 3AC + 2 SLR total 9 coaches. Looks like chatisgargh is more interested in this train providing night connectivity to vizag as CM of chatisgarh is inagurating this special train on 1st at 1700.

They do run so many freights. Only connectivity like this will help the region. Or atleast increase the coaches in the day passenger.

This is actually Amrita express. If u wish to continue journey further from palakkad towards ernakulam or Trivandrum just book a seat from pgtn and board the same coach from pollachi. No catering in train till TVC and u won't even get a bottle of water at pollachi station. So keep a bottle of water with you. reg food one can buy from PGTN wen train halts for over an hour.

Good that they started e-loco manufacturing at DLW. I read there are few more diesel loco manufacturing facilities, like few Alcos allotted to Kudgi Power Plant were manufactured near Mumbai. Those plants too should take over e-loco production, if possible.

Parel shed (very close to Dadar) has been making and modifying shunters since quite some time, unlikely they'll take up e-loco production as shunters, their prime area of expertise, is a diesel only area.

Mar 29 2017 (16:13)   Railways to terminate caterer’s contract for Sealdah Rajdhani | The Indian Express

Cracking the whip, railways has served termination notice to the caterer of Sealdah Rajdhani after receiving complaints against food quality served onboard. The catering in the Delhi-Sealdah Rajdhani has been outsourced to R K Associates, a Kanpur-based private agency engaged in train catering.
Some passengers of the New Delhi-Sealdah Rajdhani Express yesterday demonstrated at Asansol station over the “poor quality” of food allegedly served to them for dinner last night.
The passengers of the B8 and B9 coaches alleged that the food served to them at Kanpur was stale and many of them

had vomited through the night after having it. The issue was raised in the Lok Sabha today and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu assured action against the caterer.
While an inquiry has been ordered into the incident, railways has imposed Rs 50,000 penalty and issued show cause notice seeking explanation from the caterer as to why his catering contract should not be cancelled, said a senior Railway Ministry official involved in catering management.
R K Associates has been given 15-days time to submit explanation on the food complaints. Besides termination of its contract, the agency could also be blacklisted after completion of inquiry, the official said. Railways has introduced the e-catering and ready-to-eat food provisions for passengers.

It's still not termination. Just notice to explain. Some cooked up explanation, then give kickbacks and then come back. Just because an MP was travelling, and due to media spotlight all this hoopla. Else nothing........

Yes that would be good, because you can enjoy Shirdi ghat in day time too apart from this new route.
That place KSRTC Express buses wont stop. But you can get down at Nelamangala circle and from there take village buses with lot of stops - Nelamangala-Kunigal Gramanthara Sarige - and request them to stop nearby and walk. They may stop since there will be people to go to nearby villages too. It's after Solur stop.
