Something wrong with trains departing from Hwh. CSTM duronto left 6 hours late. Coromandal and Gitanjali to start from kharagpur.
IS it coz of the rains ? I dont see anyone giving any update. Also it seems there can be a great race blog between duronto and gitanjali, will probably run almost one after another.

Jun 20 2016 (16:29)   Tale of two Modi cities: Delhi-Varanasi bullet train to take less than 3 hours :

Ahead of 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, the government has fast-tracked its ambitious plan to operate bullet train from New Delhi to Varanasi, PM Modi's constituency. The train is expected to cover the 782 km journey in just two hours and 40 minutes. Currently, the trains running on this route take around 10 to 14  hours to complete the journey. India's first bullet train will dive under the sea According to Times of India , the government has accorded the Delhi-Varanasi bullet train project topmost priority after it inked a deal for funds with Japan and set up the High Speed Rail Corporation for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad stretch. Advertisement: Replay Ad
High speed Talgo trains coming to India FEASIBILITY REPORT The report said that a
Spanish firm has already been roped in by the Railways to study the feasibility of the project. The firm is expected to submit its final report in November.
DELHI TO KOLKATA IN LESS THAN 5 HOURS Once operational, the train will take just 1 hour 45 minutes to cover 506 km from Delhi to Lucknow and it will cover 1,513 km from the national capital to Kolkata in 4 hours 56 minutes. Modi's high-speed Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project may take elevated route COST OF THE PROJECT The initial cost of the project has been estimated at about Rs 43,000 crore for the Delhi-Varanasi stretch. The Delhi-Kolkata corridor will cost around Rs 84,000 crore. However, sources close to the development said that the final cost will be worked out after a detailed field study.

Delhi Kolkata one way airfare usually (except peak seasons) : INR 3000/3500
Delhi Kolkata Rajdhani 3A / 2A fare : INR 1300 / 2900
Time taken today is 17 hours, which will be reduced to 5 hours. Most likely the cost of ticket in the bullet train will not be less than 5000 one way (though I feel it will be much higher given the high cost of construction).
question - why will anyone pay more for it when it takes double the time of flights.
My Solution - forget bullet trains, take a resolution of making 75 kmph as the min average speed for all trains. That would make more sense. the time taken by trains except the del-mum and del-kol routes are obnoxious

Few days back good changes made in Civil Aviation Policy. Today FDI upto 100% in Airlines. As foreign airlines will now flood Indian market they will try to capture base by offering heavy discounts. Like online shopping Amazon/Flipkart are doing. Fares may go down further which will be more trouble for Railways as it is bound to lose the profitable segment (AC) to airlines.

Why all premium, subidha, special trains are getting LHB Rake? It's looking good. By doing this Rajdhani, Duronto Express are getting flop because all are looking same as Premium Trains. Furthermore all Important trains like Poorva Express, Purushottam Express etc also getting LHB Coaches . Here is the same issue. If all trains rakes are replacing by LHB Coaches then Railway Authority should change the Rajdhani or Duronto Coaches LHB Livery. To llok different from other trains. Otherwise all will look same. What do you think guys? Reply with your thoughts or suggestions.
