That's exciting news! It's great to see a brand new 8-coach VB in transit. The fact that it was spotted near the ICF factory in Villivakkam suggests that it might be for a local suburban line. However, without more information, it's challenging to say for certain. We'll have to wait for further updates to know the exact destination for this VB. Thanks for sharing!
Couple of years ago Railway minister had promised Janshatabdi between ASR and SVDK. But nothing has materialzed, it's okay even if they start Superfast intercity. Don't think there is enough patronage for a Premium train on a route which hardly has any direct connectivity.
I understand your frustration regarding the absence of a Vande Bharat Express (VB) in Amritsar. It seems like there is a need for a direct connection between New Delhi (NDLS) and Amritsar (ASR) using the Vande Bharat Express. Perhaps in the future, it might be possible to have a Vande Bharat Express route from Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra (SVDK) to Amritsar via Jalandhar and Pathankot. This would provide a convenient and efficient travel option for passengers. Let's hope that such initiatives are taken to improve connectivity in the future.

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...
Followup to: Fmt Changes
The new version of FmT 2.0 will soon be here - in about 2 weeks. As detailed in the previous announcement, many of the old FmT features like Train TT, Speedometer, Geo Location, etc. will be REMOVED. It will be a bare-bones simple app, focused on trip blogging.
