AHMEDABAD: If everything goes to plan, Sabarmati railway station will see its first train originate from there in March next year. Western Railway has decided to construct five platforms which will be able to handle stoppages of 24-coach trains.
Divisional railway officer Rahul Agarwal said construction work has begun and is likely to be completed by January. The officials said Sabarmati will serve as an alternative to Kalupur, especially for trains originating from Ahmedabad and headed towards Delhi.

Agarwal further said that the station has two broad-gauge platforms and one meter-gauge platform. With the conversion of the Ahmedabad-Mehsana line, the station will have three broad-gauge platforms and two more are being constructed.
Officials said important trains like Ashram Express, Rajdhani and Delhi Mail will originate from Sabarmati. Officials said that Members of Parliament in meetings with railway authorities said that with Kalupur railway station reaching its peak, the Railways should have Maninagar and Sabarmati as terminal stations from where the trains can originate.
Meanwhile, an official said that the railways had set a target for on-board cleaning services in 26 trains and the service has begun on 21 trains. The five remaining trains will also get the services soon. The railways will promote its Clean my Coach mobile app and posters will be put on trains to make more people use it. The railways has been getting nearly 200 complaints everyday about coach cleaning.
The DRM also said that barring platforms 8 and 9, all platforms will have lifts. Platform 12, like the platform 1, will have an escalator.

Ahmedabad: Railway minister Suresh Prabhu, who is visiting the state on Tuesday, will inaugurate a series of projects including electrification and gauge conversion of Ahmedabad-Mehsana track and a third line between Ahmedabad and Vatva.
The minister will lay the foundation stone of these projects at Mehsana. He will arrive in the city on Tuesday and head to Mehsana by train. The minister will also lay foundation stones for various other projects.
According to railway officials, both the projects from Ahmedabad are important as they would ease movement of trains towards the main station.

Officials said that the third line between Ahmedabad and Vatva will facilitate quicker terminus management for trains. Officials said that several trains coming from Mumbai get delayed in absence of the third line as there is lot of congestion.
Sources said that trains like Karnavati and Double decker have to wait for nearly 20 minutes because of the congestion on the lines towards Mumbai. The third line will help to take the trains to other platforms.
Officials said that apart from this, the Ahmedabad-Delhi route will also go electric. The route electrification project was announced last year. Officials said that the minister will also lay the foundation stone for the guage conversion between Ahmedabad and Mehsana. With this conversion, the entire Ahmedabad-Delhi stretch will have double track, barring a small stretch between Mehsana and Palanpur.
At present Ashram Express to Delhi from Ahmedabad takes 16 hours but with the double track the time will be reduced to 14 hours, said railway officials.
Apart from these, Prabhu will lay the foundation stone for gauge conversion for Mehsana-Taranga Hill, Miygam-Samlaya, Bhuj-Naliya, Somnath-Kodinar and a new line of Modasa to Shamlaji. He will also inaugurate the project of double-track between Surendranagar and Rajkot.

Absolutely Correct... There is a lot of space available and south and mumbai, pune bound trains can easily ply over congestion free....But i think the only problem may be the zoo nearby...as in case the terminus noise and people movement would be for almost 24 hrs which authorities may not permit as the zoo is in nearby vicinity.

Apr 01 2016 (12:34)   Delhi To Agra In 100 Minutes: India’s ‘semi-bullet’ train hits tracks next week
 

Railway Bhakt   6 news posts
Entry# 1786842   News Entry# 263127         Tags   Past Edits
After two years of wait, India’s fastest train, the “semi-bullet” Gatimaan Express, is set to begin its inaugural run on April 5. But instead of New Delhi, it will depart from Hazrat Nizamuddin and reach Agra in 100 minutes.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will not be at the station to flag off the train. Instead he will flag off the train with remote control from Rail Bhawan at 10 am.
The proper commercial run of the train, slated to achieve a top speed of 160 kmph — a landmark for India — will

commence from April 6.
The 12049/50 Gatimaan Express will clock a speed of 160 km per hour speed in the Tughlakabad-Agra section. Prior to that, it is slated to run at 120 km per hour.
The original idea to run the train from New Delhi station and make it reach Agra in 90 minutes or even in 105 or 110 minutes has been abandoned. In fact, when starting from New Delhi, the flagship train was making little improvement on time from the existing Bhopal Shatabdi. So Railways chose the safe bet of starting it from Nizamuddin station so that it reaches Agra in 100 minutes.
RECOMMENDED: Explore the wonderful world of train travel with MSN India!
The train’s fares will be higher than that of a Shatabdi.
The train will have 12 coaches of Executive Class as well as chair cars. It is yet to be decided whether to allow commercial booking for the inaugural run or start it the following day.
With its timing not proving to be much to boast about, Railways has decided to present exceptional on-board services as Gatimaan’s USP. According to a Railway Board member, the train will have “Rail Hosts and Hostesses” dressed in a blue uniform, specially designed for them. A private service provider has been appointed to carry out end-to-end passenger interface activities including checking of the tickets.
Passengers will also get a wide variety of food options to choose from — continental, Indian, Italian, Indian and others.
