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.

Belagavi needs an overnight fast train to Bengaluru more than an Intercity between the cities, the load on Rani Chennamma is too huge as its the only dedicated train for the whole UBL-BGM-MRJ route. None have asked for pitlines at BGM/BAY/BJP !!!
Dats SWR which uses concept of RSA to the fullest. Even its fr sake of maintenance y an SCR rake for a train which is for SWR. And I am 100% Sure that Sriramulu wouldnt have looked and wouldnt have idea of this PM, pitline and all. He might have just quoted GTL as it is a major junc.
