This is the only BG train in India that takes you from 11 meters above sea level (VSKP) to 1 km (1004 meters) above sea level (Shimiliguda, SMLG- ) in 3.5 hrs. Awesome..
This train line passes through 84 bridges and 58 tunnels.

Correct. Thats true. But this train takes you to the Highest BG station - SMLG in Indian Main rail network. Which excludes Kashmir valley. So the height it climbs is very steep.
Apparently, this is the only train that touches SMLG.
