I like everything about this Rajdhani except the Jalgaon halt. It is pure politics. I have been opposed to it from the very beginning. Like the Durontos and other trains, it should have skipped Jalgaon and halted at Bhusaval. The latter is a divisional HQ, a big junction and has crew change facilities. Jalgaon might be a bigger town but is not big enough to warrant a Rajdhani halt.
Here is a post from Farhan Sheikh in FB:
"Farhan Shaikh: I have spent
2 years rigorously travelling between Mumbai and Jalgaon / Bhusawal....actually both the cities are well connected by road 24x7. People from JL always used to travel to BSL and take their respective trains which was not difficult at all.... But Politics have always won and will always win...."
I have personally experienced something similar having boarded trains from Mughalsarai when living in Varanasi. MGS is regarded as a satellite halt for Varanasi and people have no problem catching trains from there.
Now just to make this happen, the crew from BSL will be transported by car between Jalgaon and Bhusaval. How is it justified that the hardworking crew has to undergo this just for the JL halt? Sooner or later, BSL is going to show up as a tech halt and converted to commercial later. Also the JL halt has opened the door for others to follow - Manmad, Khandwa, Gwalior. So, how many of you would like to see this Rajdhani with 9 commercial halts? That is what I fear the most.
I have seen this happen all too often in the last 30 years. August Kranti Rajdhani started with TWO COMMERCIAL HALTS. Look where it is now. Hoping against hope my fear doesn't come true.

I totally agree with you..
This Rajdhani is introduced with another vision to cater JL as well..
I agree with halts of trains at BSL..ALD Duronto gives little patronage from IGP, reasonably full most of times as the case may be..
It would be much more reasonable to provide halts at GWL and BSL than JL, and this move is an outcome of sheer
politics involved behind it.

With all due Respect, I Appreciate your stand on this issue as JL was Constantly ignored for premium train stops which includes Patna BDTS Humsafar, Vadodara Mahanama Exp, Pune Santaragachi Humsafar, Nagpur Pune Garibrath, Antyoday Express, Pune Kazipet SF, Jabalpur Pune SF, LTT Nizamuddin AC exp etc. Don't know the specific reason but these trains got automatic Halt at BSL due to its reputation as Junction and then CR used to say that's it's not possible to give stops to these trains in distance of 24 KM.

Mani sir this train would definitely be getting BSL and GWL halts in near future. Skipping Bhusaval is a big task, wouldn't be continued for long as it is definitely uncomfortable for the crew.Railways would never want to keep the crew uncomfortable for long. Then GWL would have its political pressure for a Halt. If Bhusaval does nit have a halt then even Jhansi should not have it as these 2 are quite similarly important railway hubs for the railways.

Actually many more trains don't stop at Jalgaon Jn. The only main reason for this is that Jalgaon Jn. is within 25 km radius of Bhusaval Jn. Such distances don't warrant stoppages as it is quite easy to travel these type of distances by road to catch a train. But in recent times many railway stations are getting halts even after having a huge Railway Junction close to the city. Hence Jalgaon Jn is now also a contender for stoppages of all the trains. If the railway does not give it, then political pressure will. We also have to understand railway's point of view that stoppages of so many trains at such short distances would definitely block traffic and slow down the route considerably.

But there is a crew change at Jhansi, if I am not mistaken. Hence, can't be skipped.

An interesting trivia. At present, 22222 Rajdhani is the only CSMT-bound train to halt at Kalyan and skip Dadar. Another VT-bound train used to do it the past. Can you guess which one? Hint: it comes from the Jabalpur side.

All good guesses. It is Mahanagri. When introduced it had the following halts - Kalyan, Igatpuri, Nasik Road, Manmad, Bhusaval, Khandwa, Itarsi, Jabalpur, Katni, Satna, Manikpur, Allahabad, Mirzapur, Mughalsarai. So, two reversals at Allahabad and Mughalsarai.

Kinda cryptic to see a train getting reversed twice between ALD and DDU(MGS)..
Now doesn't touch any of them either...
However it's just shining and well maintained as its hype is...

They removed the MGS reversal in the first year. For the first two years, it had a unique livery - cream-blue - and was completely vestibuled. But it didn't last, just like many other trains.
