All the above shall be a flop as the proposed shatabdies shall have
(1) poor occupancies- not much premium ac class traffic in all of the routes to justify a Shatabdi.
(2) All routes shall have very low avg speeds and operating speeds. A minimum standard regarding the standard of signalling, rails and sleeper density etc. should be there to operate a train of Shatabdi/Raj class.
Guwahati is only city which can be expected to give respectable number (but not high enough) of paxs to Shat. Even Ghy is often overstated as it has achieved its status due to old zonal HQ and representative of all NE states. Other cities are so small that a handful of paxs can be expected for a Shat. Even a full length JS shall be hardly patronised on the above routes.
(4) For Dibrugarh already daily Raj and many other trains are there
For Naharlagun- the existing guwahati naharlagun daily express is running with just 10 coaches.
Murkongselek- existing daily train from Kamakhya is running with just 13 coaches
GHY-New tinsukia already several options are there
Above shows that proposed train services are not actually required.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
