I didn't knew that NDLS - LJN Tejas was an NER train. Also, just so that nobody confuses, maximum average speed is NOT necessarily equal to priority given to a train. LJN Shatabdi isn't on the list since it has more stoppages than CNB one and has to traverse the slower CNB LJN stretch. However, when it comes to priority, the Lucknow one is given way more than CNB one. In winters, the CNB one is often MORE delayed than it's Lucknow counterparts on same days and often just outright cancelled.
