Elections over !
Train is not getting much traction though .. with an average vacancy of 200-300 seats daily .. IR should now think of it's extension towards DEC. Speed it up by removing unnecessary halts , bypass COR ... for saving important 30 odd mins... give it an attacking TT like BSB VB..
make it happen in 8 hours 30 mins !
= 743 kms in 8 hours 30 mins is doable.. considering 400 odd kms of 130 kmph enabled track... if not DEC , then atleast GGN connection can be thought off !

Alternatively connecting options can be explored to connect it with AGC... with a 3 hour extension..

Re# 5904936-5              
I have one more suggestion,
running it with morning org. from UDZ and evening return from Delhi, wud lead in direct competition with AII ⇌ DEC VB and JP ⇌ DEE DD and spoil their game as well.
TT of Delhi ⇌ UDZ VB sud revamped with org @ Delhi in the morning and return. It would add relief to NDLS ⇌ AII
Shat WL as well.

Re# 5904936-7              
i think , its an NWR train set , they will have to transfer it first to NR first... it is obvious that DEC-UDZ morning direction will always be more profitable..

Regarding direct competition with AII VB and DD , it won't happen in any direction as there will be sufficient gap between the train.. like if it leaves UDZ at 530-600 in the morning .. it will reach AII by 0915-0945 hours.. plus .. AII VB is getting extended to CDG... so its passenger load will gonna increase..

#1 profitability k POV se hi bol rha naa.
#2 even if gap is dere, it will lead to distribution of passengers and hence effecting profitability of each train.

#3 PM can be done @ UDZ on Tuesday. Rake will remain of NWR.
(org morning) - UDZ (ter afternoon) week-off on Tu
UDZ (org afternoon) - Delhi (ter evening) week-off on M
[similar to 22226/25 SUR ⇌ CSMT ; PM @ CSMT ; Week-off - Th/W]

#4 We do need faster premium train / VB (with morning dep) from Delhi to JP/AII
as u know, AII Shat has lost the charm due to multiple stops and its slowdown.
[like we discussed for NDLS ⇌ AY VB along with NDLS ⇌ LJN Shat Ref: /blog/post/5769589 ]

#5 Infact, I will appreciate AII bypass and COP bypass for the above #VBprospect.

yes ! we need a faster Delhi Jaipur Connectivity in the morning ! Shatabdi is literally crawling and lost the charm ...
AII bypass is a good idea.. if NWR conceives it .. they have not really used AII bypass for any passenger train from Delhi yet...

    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...
