AFAIK overspeeding upto ±5 kmph is possible, not beyond that because it may cause the coaches to oscillate violently and hamper ride quality. BTW I found a few blogs regarding over speeding of trains, must check them out --> /blog/post/1174444 /blog/post/2114120 ... more...
during oscillation trials train is tested at 10% excess speed than the permitted/sanctioned MPS of line. WR, for instance, after AC-fication in mumbai division had trials at 145 Kmph before 130 clearance was given in VR-BRC-GDA/ADI sections. +5 Kmph isn't much actually, but safety reasons force them to restrict it within sanctioned speed.
Yup, i know that. For Example : Normal ICF coaches can perfectly run at 120 kmph without any significant issues, but there is a thing called "Safety Factor" , which restricts ICF coaches to 110 kmph. Else ICF coaches can do 110+ kmph perfectly. Similarly NDLS-MGS route can be fully utilised to its full potential ( ~140-145 kmph), but due to this "Safety Factor", it is restricted for 130kmph operations only.

How did the food taste[doesn't look too good for 1A]? Also, and correct me if I am wrong, isn't there is no limit to on how much you can eat in 1A[like no restriction on the kadhai paneer and stuff, since it is made in the pantry itself]?

Because of the large number of pics for some trains/stations/locos, showing all of them unnecessarily consumes bandwidth. Hereafter, we shall be randomly showing 4 of all the available pics. At this time, only the 4 latest are being shown. Soon, we shall be randomizing this. Reply given by mod sir.
