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.
Yes bro! you have very rightly pointed out about the Kota JS! and thanks for the same!! I just gave clarification to the superlative statements appearing about RIG JS which may appear a bit exaggerated.

Railway enthusiasts from every nook and corner of India along with the IR news/ information is the USP of IRI, which makes it different from plain IR news reading in news papers/ other sources. We should not hesitate to speak our minds and enrich our IRI brethren. Even if any slip-of-tongue occurs, it should not be an issue amongst us. Blogging in such a free and entertaining environment is always a combo of enrichment+pleasure.
Yes, and wasting of 1870 km of diesel is also a profit to Indian Railways. Running a diesel engine from Trivandrum to Vadodara. I understand the distance is shorter, but it is only profitable to the passengers of Konkan and Kerala and not to the Tamil Nadu. But on other hands if you just look on the IRI blog that TVC Rajdhani have the worst service in compare to the other Rajdhani and Pantry guys demand Rs.100 and not less than that. I went in Bangalore Rajdhani 2 years back and service was amazing Pantry guys asked for Rs.50, but I gave only 30 he just moved. Then also late I went to Pantry and asked for a juice and ice cream he did not ask from me a penny. Plus they were asking all the passengers who boarded train from Bhopal after 22.00 that do they need dinner.
I am a regular traveller in 12431/32 but with me none of the pantry guy demands for tips. I used to travel with my kid, and the pantry guys used to serve accordingly. They used to provide Hot Milk to Kid in morning evening and night. Regarding Fuel E locos also consumes electricity. If railway runs more trains in Konkan , it means from konkan the revenue is more. and There is a surplus fare in KR trains as the chargable KM is 30% more than the actual route km. So running a train through KR will be profitable for railways.
