i feel SR should give 1st preference to south bound overnight trains like nellai,,pearl city,anantapuri,pothigai,manglore mail,salem exp becoz in these trains most no of tamil nadu pax travels, also will be helpful fighting against bus lobby that take away many of potential pax
given that SR is in losses,these overnight trains provide huge potential of earning becoz according to railway fare slab,more distance you travel less you pay,
with above mentioned trains running with LHB with HOG will save lots of money for railway
so

my 1st preference to above trains
followed by TNSK{bcoz its sampark kranti}
followed by Tamil nadu,and GT
NOTE that my above plan might take 2020,but looks most effective to me looking at passengers prospective and profits
hopefully by that time LHB with 24 coaches will also become a reality,bcoz right now running with 22 coaches are the biggest hurdle for any LHB train.
suggestions are welcome

Converting ICF to LHB will not bring potential bus passengers . they should be addition of new trains and faster schedules in shorter routes with avg of 60kmph will bring more travellers to rail.

partially true,yes there is lot of slack time in SR,but thats due to either single line or huge slack time
talking about mdu chennai section the speeds are good but they have given huge slack time due to single line section around trichy
after doubling the whole section will speed up,i see potential of covering this 500 km strech in 7hrs

मुंबई। मुंबई में लोकमान्य तिलक टर्मिनस पर शनिवार को आयोजित एक समारोह में रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने पूरी तरह स्वदेश निर्मित लोकल ट्रेन "मेधा" को रिमोट कंट्रोल के जरिये हरी झंडी दिखाई। 43.23 करोड़ रुपये की लागत से बनी यह ट्रेन मुंबई के पश्चिम रेलमार्ग पर चलेगी। पहली ट्रेन ने शनिवार को दादर से बोरीवली और फिर बोरीवली से चर्चगेट का चक्कर पूरा किया।
अब तक मुंबई सहित देश के दूसरे शहरों में चलने वाली लोकल ट्रेनों के कोच तो भारत में बनते थे, लेकिन उनमें इलेक्ट्रिक एवं अन्य तकनीकी काम विदेशी सीमेंस एवं बाम्बार्डियर कंपनियों द्वारा किए जाते थे। प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी की "मेक इन इंडिया" पहल के तहत मेधा ट्रेन के कोच तो चेन्नाई स्थित इंटीग्रल कोच फैक्ट्री (आइसीएफ) में

तैयार किए गए हैं जबकि इलेक्ट्रिकल एवं अन्य तकनीकी काम पहली बार हैदराबाद के मेधा सर्वो ड्राइव्स फर्म ने किए हैं।
इससे ट्रेन की कुल कीमत में करीब एक करोड़ रुपये की कमी आई है। विदेशी बॉम्बार्डियर कंपनी द्वारा तैयार 12 कोच वाली ट्रेन की कीमत जहां 44.36 करोड़ रुपये होती थी, वहीं आइसीएफ एवं मेधा सर्वो ड्राइव्स फर्म के संयुक्त प्रयास से तैयार यह ट्रेन 43.23 करोड़ रुपये में ही तैयार हो गई है। पश्चिम रेलवे ने फिलहाल 12 कोच वाली दो ट्रेनें तैयार करवाई हैं। इस प्रकार के और अधिक कोचों के ऑर्डर देने पर इनकी कीमत और कम हो सकती है।
ट्रेन में खास
"मेधा" में 1,168 सीटें हैं और कुल 6,000 से अधिक यात्री इसमें यात्रा कर सकते हैं। ट्रेन की अधिकतम रफ्तार 110 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटा होगी। ट्रेन में रीजनरेटेड ब्रेकिंग सिस्टम का उपयोग किया गया है। जिसके उपयोग से 30 से 35 फीसद बिजली पैदा होकर ओवरहेड वायर्स में जाएगी और इतनी बिजली की बचत होगी।
ट्रेन में रूफ माउंटेड फोर्स्ड वेंटीलेशन व्यवस्था होने के कारण ट्रेन की कूलिंग क्षमता 16,000 घन क्यूबिक मीटर प्रति घंटा है। औपचारिक शुरुआत से पहले इस ट्रेन का कई महीनों तक ट्रायल किया गया। बता दें कि मुंबई की लोकल ट्रेनों में प्रतिदिन 35 लाख यात्री सफर करते हैं।

©The Dark Lord™~   32 news posts
Entry# 2188824   News Entry# 295608         Tags   Past Edits
The Indian Railways has decided to add two more coaches to all Rajdhani trains to accommodate more passengers in the premier service. Currently, Rajdhani trains are having 22 coaches, which will increase to 24 facilitating more passengers to travel at a time. According to a senior Railway Ministry official, it has been decided to augment capacity of all LHB trains and it will begin with Rajdhani service. Later on, other trains with German Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches including Shatabdi, Duronto and Mail/Express service, which have high demand, will also be provided additional coaches to cater to the growing demand of passengers. According to the plan, while two additional coaches would be added in Rajdhani, other Mail/Express trains will be provided three LHB coaches.

They will do some modification. BTW it's already been proposed by the RDSO that train running with HOG supply system should have only Power car only and the remaining other EOG should be replaced by a regular coach.

प्रभु ने इस सेवा की शुरुआत की। 70 किलोमीटर की इस दूरी को तय करने में ढाई घंटे लगे जबकि सड़क मार्ग से करीब छह घंटे लग जाते हैं।
