Why are there only 2 trains runnings on the gondia-jabalpur line? I thought there would be many more trains.

how funny it is that still the passenger running till NIR which started when the route after NIR is not constructed but in present full section till BTC-G is opened they still run this passenger till NIR dont know what is the sense and few trains which introduced in this section like JBP-Chandafort is a disastor because only if this train runs b/w JBP to Ballarshah then only its beneficial to passengers that why this train didnt survive for many days ans stopped so atleast sensefull routes should be made if the new train is introduced otherwise no use

I don't think any train to Balharshah would be successful from Jabalpur.
First of all Chanda Fort is not that far off from Balharshah, having travelled numerous times in this route through Rajdhani/Duronto I have seen the distance myself it's more like 9 to 11 Kilometres apart. Plus that station is in Chandrapur, much bigger City than Balharshah.
Also, Balharshah is not exactly a high patronage providing station. Unlike other compulsorily halts like Bhusawal, Jhansi, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Junction etc. I have rarely seen people boarding or deboarding at Balharshah in noticable numbers.

Plus there's a demand from Jabalpur (and surrounding areas) to Nagpur for many facilities majority being Medical facilities, similar demand simply doesn't exist for Balharshah.
Only hope for Jabalpur sourced trains in this route is if the destination is set to be a bigger City like Hyderabad, Tirupati, Chennai, Bengaluru etc.

Maybe Satpura express can return in a BG avatar between Nagpur and Jabalpur (or between Itwari and Madan Mahal).

JBP-CAF is just a token train, nothing more than that. Atmax, it can serve as twin intercities between Jabalpur Gondia...and between Gondia Chandrapur.

    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...
