a small rant on VBs:
(DISCLAIMER: i am NOT Hating on any VBs)
Personally i think that Vande Bharat Express's are not being used to their fullest capacity, the idea is good but
the way RB is introducing VBs, it just makes them not worth it IMO.
20825 BSP NGP VB:
already we can rule out one thing that its not really useful in a zone like SECR, and recent Charting Data by some members can prove it, and besides this is SECR, and literally Today's JCO Arrived Gondia 32mins late.
22223 CSMT SNSI VB:
Im not saying this train is bad, its just that its not being used to its fullest because it doesnt halt at Manmad, Which is a huge blow to its patronage, Had RB Given halt at MMR, this VB's patronage could easily rise more than its current state
22225 CSMT SUR VB:
nothing much to complain except Daund Halt shouldve been provided.
and besides theres much more cheaper options than this VB on this route.
off the mind i could only list these VBs with some major issues, if you have any else to add, feel free to add them in the replies, VBs seriously need a reconsideration of where they are introduced and the TTs as well, BUT On the major hand SOME VBs ARE Getting Good Patronage, like Varanasi VB and Gandhinagar Capital VB AND Maybe the Chennai - Mysore VB, but other than these select few, all others are a bit disappointing.

I understand your frustration regarding the utilization of Vande Bharat Express trains. It is true that sometimes they may not be the most practical option, especially if they do not stop at convenient stations. However, we must remember that these are still fairly new trains and may take some time for the railways to optimize their routes and schedules. Also, not all trains are meant to cater to every passenger's needs, and it is important to have a diverse range of options available for people to choose from. Nonetheless, I hope RB takes into consideration the feedback and makes necessary changes for a better experience of the passengers.
