It was very unfortunate to remove the Duronto TAAG from this service.Digha is now fast developing and catching up at the national level as well.Duronto used to provide a premium service.Was completely unjustified to convert it into Super AC Exp which invariably is same only.Lot of destinations in Mandarmani,Tajpur,New Digha and other beaches are coming up in the vicinity.

Brand Value decreases!!! And what was the need of doing that.They could have decreased the freq,could have used the rake in any other sections like HWH-NJP Bi-weekly Duronto as well.Change was deliberately done

HWH-Digha Duronto in the weekends as Kolkata-Digha rush increases.
HWH-NJP on weekdays as NJP bound traffic is always there and it would also have run reverse to the timing of Presently running Shatabdi.

Should be extended upto New Coochbehar via SGUJ,New Mal Jn,Lataguri so that tourist places of South and North Bengal are connected.RSA should be relieved.Extended portion stoppage can be New Mal Jn,Lataguri,Maynaguri Rd,Mathbhanga,New Changrabandha.Frequency can also be increase when the rake becomes independent.

Please name the angry bulls of IR. Please exclude specials including Subidhas and premiums (Raj, Shatabdi, JS, GR, HS, AC, Yuva).
Personally, I had had journeys in 2 such trains- Durgiana and Saraighat. I think Sampoorn Kranti will fall in this category easily. But please don't name the paper tigers (the trains with pretty impressive TT but stays significantly late throughout the year) like Nandankanan, PSK etc.
What about KSK, TN, Shaan- e- Bhopal, Thirukkural, Poorva, MAQ Vivek etc?

Jan 10 2017 (09:30)   Railway Ministry Used As Bargaining Tool By Earlier Governments, Says PM Modi

MCPNBR~   359 news posts
Entry# 2122089   News Entry# 290908         Tags   Past Edits
GANDHINAGAR -- Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said his government is focused on development of railways shedding earlier practices wherein the ministry was used as a "bargaining tool" by the main ruling party to "distribute trophies to its allies".
"The railway was left to its fate in earlier regimes. The allies of main political party used to demand the railway ministry to join the government. The party which came to power at Centre also used the railway ministry as a bargaining tool to distribute trophies to its allies. This is a bitter truth," he said.
from political parties who got the control of the railways were not interested in (development of) railways and I need not say what they were interested in," Modi said.
The Prime Minister today laid the foundation stone for redevelopment of Gandhinagar railway station, which will get a face-lift at a cost of ₹250 crore and will have a 300-room five star hotel built atop.
"My government has given priority to railways... it should expand, it should be developed, get modernised and it should bring a qualitative change in the lives of common people. We have tried to do this in the last two years and five months. We have increased the budget of railways to double of what it was," he said.
Modi listed various works done by his government to develop railways and said the pace of doubling of railway tracks has increased, besides speeding up of gauge conversion and electrification of lines.
He said free WiFi has been provided at railway stations.
The Central government is working to increase speed of trains and also striving to bring in global technology to make railways safer, as "safety is of greatest concern", Modi said.
"In developed countries, 70 percent goods transportation is carried out by railways while rest by roads. However in India, 15 to 20 percent is through railways while 70 to 80 percent is by roads. Goods tend to get costlier when transported by roads. We are stressing on development of freight corridors," he said.
The Prime Minister also said that railway stations located in cities can be developed by constructing high-rise buildings atop them.
Gandhiangar railway station will be redeveloped through a special purpose vehicle (SPV) formed between the Gujarat government and the Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Ltd (IRSDC). The proposed name of the SPV is Gandhinagar Railway & Development Corporation Ltd.
The project includes redevelopment of the railway station as well as the construction of a 300-room five star hotel atop the station. The hotel, with three towers, will be around 65 metres tall.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said his ministry is planning to replicate such redevelopment at 23 railway stations across the country.

Yes. Every politically insignificant (no chance of winning or no elections scheduled) place lost their voice. Rly Budgets atleast gave 1 train to all divisions. Incremental growth. Now nothing. Total stagnation and officers aren't pressurised to complete a line fully before inauguration. Just half done with no signalling, no proper PF or other infra. After inauguration just a lonely passenger. This budget will probably be just a one-liner - allocation details, I guess.

The part of Northeast has been used by all political parties for only one agenda, show off. While people may argue that current govt has actually commissioned projects and given trains, we know what the actual condition is. The political opportunity for center govt is less in NE states. So giving them a station with 2 platforms (such that each of them has only 50% area covered with shed and lacks other infra) and starting a couple of express trains and a couple of passenger trains is enough for any govt to brag.
I feel we never had a voice. How can we loose one!

I do not have any idea about that. All such info shall be unveiled in budget session itself. I donot think that they will mention trains for any area, in the budget. This was not done in the last two sessions. Region specific goodies can be expected. But you know, I am confused. Many projects introduced in the last budget were long term ones like doubling, tripling etc. Although, the wok on some of them have started, they will take years to finish. So will they again come up with new ones to set up a pile of work to be done?
