Since bathinda shatabdi is serving rohtak,jind and jakhal public..... 12037/38 and 12043/44 should run via UMB-PNP route.

I think NDLS-SRE-UMB would be more better than this as this route don't have any shatabdi.

I couldn't find the arrival departure history of this train anywhere. Can anyone please share their past experiences about punctuality of this train. Does this train arrives NDLS on time and reaches Haridwar on time? I will be travelling in this train on 20 December from NDLS to HW

Idiotic proposal. According to this, Shatabdi will take 7 hours to reach delhi from ludhiana. where as others shatabdis genrally take 4 -4:30 hours? Who will actually board the train if this time table is applied.

Travelled in this train last friday. Full marks for speed and punctuality, Food was average, Lots of mosquitoes were flying inside the coach and seats were not comfortable at all. It felt like u are sitting on a wooden plank.

Travel Diary- Yesterday i travelled in 12038 LDH-NDLS shatabdi. Since it was sunday, there was a huge rush and all trains were having long waiting list. Shane punjab CC and 2S,both were jampacked, so i decided to book a ticket in 12038. To my surprise, this shatabdi was almost 90% full on sunday evening while starting from ludhiana. Coaches were clean enough and toilets were clean too.Tea and snacks were served as soon as we started. It departed 10 mins late from ludhiana. Then there comes the next stoppage,Dhuri. Not even a single passenger boarded this train from dhuri. Just after 15 minutes, train reached sangrur. Good amount of people boarded the train and now it felt the occupancy of 100% has been achieved. Next stoppage were Tohana and Jind. Like dhuri, not even a single passenger boarded this train. Both of the stations were like dark rooms. No lights were...
there. After we crossed Jind, Dinner was served. One word for dinner-Pathetic. Then we reached rohtak. Few passengers deboarded at Rohtak but none of the passenger boarded from Rohtak. Aftre crossing rohtak, pantry boy came in asking for tip in lieu of that shitty food.
At last we reached NDLS 5 minutes early before its scheduled time of 10:10 PM.
Overall it was average journey where i didnt got a feeling of shatabdi. I could have travlled in Shane punjab Chair car itself which takes exactly same amount of time to reach delhi from ludhiana. If we exclude the amount charged for dinner too, then also shane punjab seems economical.

You see, 10yrs back a BTI-NDLS Shatabdi used to ply via Patiala. But they cancelled the train without giving it time in just one month. Now, Patiala people are desperate to have a shatabdi, but IR or NR won't listen.

Yes,patiala will definitely get good amount of pax once shatabdi is started on this route. either bhatinda shatabi or a standalone shatabdi which start from Patiala itself will work.

i think a new shatabdi shouldnt start from bti to ndls via bnn pta umb. because poeple of bathinda prefer rohtak jind route for delhi as it takes less time. shatabdi should start from barnala via patiala rajpura ambala cantt as there are also lot of passengers from barnala for delhi then da shatabdi will get good patronage

NR should divert the Ludhiana-Delhi Shatabdi via Dhuri , Sangrur to via Dhuri -Patiala-Rajpura. I am sure it'll pull more passengers on this route, than running with empty rakes on its present route.

And what abt the people of ludhiana. They would anyhow prefer 312 km journey instead of 367 km. Its better to start patiala shatabdi from patiala itself.

Wag 7 is equivalent of Wap 7 . Difference is Wag is used for goods train and Wap is used to handle passenger traffic. Electric to milna hi tha kyunki UMB-NDLS electrified hai.

Its a mind set of people that shatabdi takes only 3-3:30 hours for journey between NDLS-CDG. If it is run via this proposed route which itself is stating the journey of more than 4 hours, then why people would take this shatabdi and this move will again overload the kalka shatabdi. I read one suggestion that it should be extended to ldh . This is a good option as it will serve people of mohali as well and currently running ldh/moga shatabdi can be scraped and run till ferozepur via rohtak/jind .
