Right bro! About 20 km stretch between RJN & DGG have speed restriction of around 50kmph due to ghat at Salekasa-Darekasa, but rest of track is fairly straight and level Trains running at 105-110kmph can cover remaining section (245 kms of Durg-NGP sections) in around 3 hrs at an avg speed of almost 90kmph, if given through and through green signal. But this seldom happens today due to obstruction caused by a large number of freight trains operating on the route. Even the HWH-MGS 130kmph route have its slower/ hilly patches like Gurpa-Gajhandi section where even HWH Raj too slows down to restricted speed, so it is not a big problem. Since 410km BSP-R-Durg-NGP has already been identified for upgradation to semi... more...
high speed (160kmph), it looks like the frequent mega blocks being taken in the NSP-Durg section are meant for speed upgradationworks also along with other improvements/ maintenance works. With NGP-SC also identified for Semi High speed upgradation, we can expect 130/160kmph trains on BSP-NGP-SC route in future.

1 compliments Awesome
It was a great surprise that three back to back offlinks spotted on the same day. Seen here is 40 mins late running 22646 Ahilyanagari SF Express bound for Indore (INDB) entering the Coimbatore junction led by NCR's mid mount beast 22282 from Kanpur (CNB). For HQ: click here Dtd: 18.03.17
HWH P7 is not a big deal' Does Offlink only means Locos from other sheds/zones? 13132 never ever gets any P7 leave alone HWH p7. So teaming it as a huge Offlink is apt. AFAIK, Offlink is actually the Loco which gets rarely seen with any particular train, doesn't matter if the Loco shed is very near to the homezone of the train. If that train doesn't get that class of Loco regularly, then it is an Offlink. Even if a train gets P4 regularly and one day ... more...
suddenly gets P7 of the very same shed, it would be termed as an Offlink.
Bro it is surely an offlink and even sometimes 22651 palani murugan Express which has least priority is MAS to SA line gets a P7 but 16860 rarely doesn't comes with tiffin boxes(WDP-4D) and it is a WDM-3D from MLDT so we are not under rating any offlink all are a great offlink only but this offlink is something which doesn't even happens so please understand
