First of all congratulations to all CR members for the New Year gift that they have received .
But there are few points :-
Point - 1
If TT of 22109/22110 has to be followed than what is need for Push/Pull trials and 120 MPS in IGP-ET section , when AC SF is already covering this section successfully at MPS of 110.Hence,proved that trials
and 120 MPS in IGP - ET section is currently of no use.
Point - 2
But can anybody tell what was the reason for changing the running day of CSMT - JBP GR ?
As already slot selected for CSMT RAJ is slow and is copy/paste of LTT-NZM AC which overtakes Jabalpur GR in every run.Even JBP GR has a lot of slack in BSL-KNW section and can cover delay upto 1.5 hrs in that section.So why there is a change in the running day of GR ..
Point - 3
Secunderabad Rajdhani and Chennai Garibrath are two legends who have faced the damage by slowing down by 5 mins ( they are now not running at Rajdhani slot or either duronto slot from BPL/HBJ).
When it was final that NZM arrival had to be after 10:00 Am at NZM then instead of changing timings of Secunderabad Rajdhani and Chennai Garibrath and instead of making a new slot it would have been better if CSMT RAJ have followed slot of Chennai/Secunderabad Duronto from following this duronto slot..Chennai garibrath and secunderabad Rajdhani could have been saved from slowing down for this CR RAJ.
I don't know why CR decided to make new slot at NZM by making the train arrive at 10:20 and making situation complicated by slowing down chennai GR and SC RAJ.Instead they could have simply followed the Duronto slot from HBJ...already they have made a slow TT.

It is quite clear that trials with push pull technique are not final and their report is yet to be evaluated. They would be needing more such trials in various other sections also like midghat and thalghat. So, keeping the elections in site , this raj has been introduced without any technical upgradation in hurry to appaease mah electorate.
But to justify the premium flexi fare over 22109/10 what is on the offer for public : red livery lhb coaches is same( nothing like that of ECR captain rjpb raj getting distinct livery, TT is same, food is same, stoppages are same,loco is same,
apart a push pull dual loco, a WAM4 at 110 mps can easily manage this TT taking extra time for banker attachment/detachment at thal ghat and mid ghat section.

Thanks for making me understand the point of change in Run day of JBP GR .
But still I would say one point that the train should have been atleast 20 mins much faster than TT of AC SF as there was news that it willl get 120 MPS in IGP-ET too..If this happens then the train will run too much early as at 110 AC SF has a lot of slack of about 50 mins in BSL-BPL section.
And one more thing .Now as there is not considerable speed up is there
any need to run this train with 2 locos ?

Today (10:40)   Mumbai: Two new trains to woo north Indian voters

Speaking at a rally in Rae Bareli on December 16 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised a new train for commuters who travel between Mumbai and Rae Bareli.

AHEAD OF the Lok Sabha elections, the BJP-led central government is set to roll out a new Rajdhani Express on Central Railway (CR) to woo north Indian voters in Mumbai as well as in the Congress bastions of Rae Bareli and Amethi in Uttar Pradesh.
a new Rajdhani Express between Mumbai and Delhi, also on CR, will be flagged off before the code of conduct kicks. Sources said the new Rajdhani will be flagged-off by Union Railway Minister Piyush Goel on Republic Day.
Speaking at a rally in Rae Bareli on December 16 last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had promised a new train for commuters who travel between Mumbai and Rae Bareli. A senior Railway Board official said that to fulfil that promise, the Railways ministry has ordered a new train for Rae Bareli, which will also connect to Amethi.
Currently, two trains connect Rae Bareli to Mumbai. First is the Saket Express, which is divided at Pratapgarh junction, with half the coaches then headed for Rae Bareli and the other half to Faizabad junction. The ministry will now introduce a new rake that will be added to CR services and run from Lokmanya Tilak Terminus to Rae Bareli. The other train that connects Mumbai and Rae Bareli is the Udyog Nagri Express. A senior Railway Board member said the traffic on this route is high and a new train will be introduced in May to ease the pressure off the Udyog Nagri Express.
Meanwhile, a CR official said that the final trial for new Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani will be conducted on January 16 and January 17. “By January 21, we expect to get approval from the commissioner of Railway Safety,” said an official.
The new Rajdhani Express will have 15 coaches and ply from CSMT every Saturday and Wednesday. It will depart from Hazrat Nizamuddin every Friday and Monday. The train will have eight halts — CSMT, Kalyan, Nasik, Jalgaon, Bhopal, Jhansi, Agra Cantt and Nizamuddin.

#site suggestion
A new coach type should be added i.e is ICF Utkrisht as many trains have now been upgraded in Utkrisht scheme.

Technically, they are exactly identical to normal ICF coaches. It will be misleading to call the Utkrisht coaches a different "type".
The upgrades in the Utkrisht scheme are purely cosmetic, like the "Swarn" upgrade that was going on before that. It should be sufficient to mention it in the rake description (Like how CDO and RSA information is presented for many trains).

there are no technical changes just some kind of luxury and beautification
they are icf only and Utkrisht maybe written in description area that would be enough

CBC coupled coaches have very different ride characteristics compared to normal coaches and in general are much safer, and require an actual change in design of the coach (There is a shock absorption system and a drawbar behind the CBC coupler that is very different from those used for the couplings in normal ICF coaches). While it is not radically different, there is a considerable difference in the ride quality, safety and construction of the coach.
Utkrisht coaches just have a different color and some decoration inside.
