Useful
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
...
more...
the way RB is introducing VBs, it just makes them not worth it IMO.

Example:

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.

Agree
VB ideally should run on those routes where there is continuous speed limit of 130km/hr so as to ensure that it remains distinct from other trains. As of now there is not too much time difference between Vande Bharat and some other SF trains on that route. So many people migh still prefer other trains.

Re# 5679357-14              
agreed, majority of the VBs are still running on routes where the speed limit is still 110 which is a major problem IMO.

SECR WILL BE CURED ONLY IF COAL BLOCKS OF KORBA ,IB VALLEY ,UMARIA, AMBIKAPUR are Emptied And IRON ORES OF DALLI RAJHARA,AND MAGNESE ORE OF BALAGHAT RAILWAY BOARD IS ONLY CONCERNED OF PROFITS THROUGH FREIGHT REVENUE SO MANY COMPLAINTS HAVE BEEN REGISTERED TO RB ,RAIL MINISTRY,ZONE HQ BSP , NO RESPONSE FROM THEM EVEN MPs and MLAs HAVE COMPLAINED TO PMO NOTHING HAPPENED AS RB FOCUS ON ONLY PROFITS

PAXS OF SECR ARE PAYING THE PRICE THAT RICH MINERALS ARE FOUND IN THEIR REGION AND ITS NEW NORMAL HERE TRAINS RUNNING
...
more...
5-8 HRS LATE

OTHER ZONES WHERE THERE ARE ONLY SINGLE LINE AND DOUBLE LINE THEY RUN TRAINS IN TIME WHAT IS THE USE QUADRUPLE LINE AND TRIPLE LINE IN SECR IF THEY CANT RUN TRAINS ON TIME

YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH THAT TRAINS IN YOUR ZONE RUNS ON TIME

🔸New Guntakal Bypass Line connects from near Maddikera/Mallappa Gate between GTL-DHNE Section to GTL-RC/WADI Section towards Guntakal Jn.
🔸 This line will help trains coming from Bengaluru/Yesvantpur and Secunderabad/Kacheguda side to go towards Dharmavaram Jn. and Dhone Jn. without loco reversal at Guntakal Jn.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
