Revision in Timings, CBE-BNC VB now departs at 07:25 A.M instead of current 05:00 A.M departure.
So, UDAY first and then VB next...

Yes, that needs to be checked if it could negotiate the sharp curves and ghats in that route.

With that previous stmt Arun bro had mentioned, even I agree to his point... the only thing to be done is 2 things:-

1. Perform 'n' number of trial runs and check the speed it can travel (with pax and without pax) (something like how metros do the trial when standing at a bridge with sacks of cement like how it happened for Namma Metro where girder was placed right above the Banaswadi-Hosur single line for testing purpose {{Link for reference:- click here }} )

2. Attach some fencing at the heavy curves of the Ghats section to prevent accidents...👍

Also, swapping any kind of trains is not that easy, I feel. I don't know if that happened before in the history of IR. Extension seems like a safe bet.

Route has not been swapped for two trains afaik but, yes many trains have had changed of its route, best example is 16339/40. IMO, Vande Bharat, which is intended for a high speed rail connectivity, can take up the faster route. Whereas DD/Uday can take proper intercity connectivity irrespective of the route for it having such a coach composition.

I agree, VB could've been planned better. At this point in terms of speed, it is just a regular train and not a premium one.

    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...
