Changing the concept of LKO RAJDHANI, presenting to an another concept' . One Red flag is that of old train so pls try to overlook it. Pls flag this one green.
Presenting to you the full-fleged "SAMPOORNA KRANTI' of NR - 'SAMKRANTI EXPRESS' . Once LKO-MB-NDLS route is upgraded to 130 kmph. This train will rock its way. An early morning TT will ensure a good retreat for railfans too. Suggestions are welcomed.

Sleeper ac? Even if and when mb route is upgraded, we can hope for DD to be shut down and a shatabdi run on this route. Meanwhile lko mail and ac will be speeded by 25-30 mins then.

Forgot to update the CC. Now updated. Meanwhile, i don't think DD wud be shut as now RB is in preparation to extend it to JP direct from LJN . While i don't think shatabdi is needed for lko-mb route as there are less imp stn's on this route & it might run many a times empty.

Can anybody tell me that on which platform does 12231 LKO-CDG express terminates at Chandigarh Station...? If it's PF-1 then there isn't any problem but if it's any other than PF-1 then is there any wheel chair facility available at Chandigarh Railway station...? My mother will travel along with my grand mother later this month...

Better call and confirm with station master. Else even if the station has one, it will take a lot of time to make it available on anyother platform except the main one.

To decongest Kanpur, some trains should be made to bypass Kanpur via chandari-Govindpuri Junction - Panki towards Tundla / Agra Fort / Delhi.
DO you agree ?
Current, only 12275 / 76 ALD Duronto skips kanpur via chandari-Govindpuri Junction.
[ NOTE : Not only 1 2, 10 or 50, there are around 100 trains from Kanpur CNB towards Tundla & Delhi ].

All SKs like Jharkhand. Odisha. WB. Assam5%2
Rajdhani Gangs and the 3 Durontos10%4

Regarding to your 4th point, the dfc will be a separate line which passes through outside kanpur and all major cities enroute. Once its made operational, gal will be available for passenger traffic more often

Re# 2346274-6            Tags   Past Edits
I cud nowhere see blog talked future reference.
Well, certainly freight wud pass via DFC which is on outskirts of kanpur.
But will freight which have to do with Kanpur also take DFC route ?
wud freight in and out from Panki Thermal Power Plant, IOC Panki, BP Panki, Logistic Park Panki, Duncan Fertiliser Panki, ICD Govindpuri, CPC Maalgoodam (near CNB), FCI Kanpur (near Chandari) n many more Establishment not use the current GAL line.
They might shift in near future.
But brother, Rome wasnt built in a day.
NCR has clarified goods related to kanpur wil take old route only n businessesman need not to worry.
I don't know how did assume GAL wud become passenger track. Traffic might force it to become though. But not so early.
Any questions, please ask !
Well s per news, Modi Govt is trying hard to make DFC operational by 2018 (I.e. before general elections)

See, as far as i know through some seniors, there are going to be separate stations on dfc route including one in kanpur. So local businessman too will benefit from dfc being operationalized.
From an experienced spotter - Start of Allahabad bypass at Manauri station
25°27'17.1"N 81°41'14.8"E
End of Allahabad bypass at Karchana railway station. Bypass goes around the city of Allahabad and
the city of Naini
.................................................. ....................................
Kanpur bypass for DFC
Start of bypass east of Kanpur at Rooma.
26.331397, 80.449399
Fork in DFC near Bhimsen station, on Kanpur Jhansi line. Note the left hand earthworks will link with IR tracks
26.419868, 80.240845
DFC will re-join IR Howrah-Delhi tracks here, no earthworks visible.
26.468238, 80.129190
Khurja(Delhi)-Kanpur section in fact ends here. West of here to Delhi is scheduled to be commissioned Dec 2018.
A lot of DFC bypass around Kanpur has been mislabeled by Google earth as Outer ring road. So beware.

core city, freights r bound to enter the city until they shifted to outskirts of city.

जागरण ब्यूरो, नई दिल्ली : ट्रेन के जरिये दिल्ली से लखनऊ, वाराणसी, पटना या कोलकाता जाने वालों के लिए अच्छी खबर है। इस रूट पर 250-300 किलोमीटर की रफ्तार से बुलेट ट्रेन चलाने का सपना साकार होने वाला है। स्पेन की कंपनी इनको-टिप्सा-आइसीटी ने इस परियोजना की ड्राफ्ट रिपोर्ट रेलवे बोर्ड को सौंप दी है। अध्ययन रिपोर्ट के अनुसार कुल 13 वर्षो में पूरी की जाने वाली परियोजना के तीन चरण होंगे। 1रेलवे बोर्ड के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी के अनुसार स्पेन की कंपनी को दो साल पहले इस हाईस्पीड परियोजना के अध्ययन की जिम्मेदारी सौंपी गई थी।पिछले साल इसने प्राथमिक रिपोर्ट हाईस्पीड रेल कॉरपोरेशन और रेलवे बोर्ड को सौंपी थी। जबकि गुरुवार को इसने फाइनल रिपोर्ट का मसौदा रेलवे बोर्ड को सौंपा है। अब तीन महीने बाद कंपनी फाइनल रिपोर्ट देगी। इस बीच मुंबई-अहमदाबाद कॉरीडोर पर इस साल सितंबर में काम शुरू होने की बात कही जा रही है।यह रूट 720 किलोमीटर लंबा होगा। इसके निर्माण में आठ साल का वक्त लगेगा और 52,680 करोड़ रुपये की लागत आएगी। इसके तैयार होने पर बुलेट ट्रेन का सफर 2 घंटे 37 मिनट में पूरा होगा।लगभग 228 किलोमीटर लंबे इस हिस्से के निर्माण में दो साल का वक्त लगेगा और तकरीबन 22 हजार करोड़ रुपये की लागत आएगी। बुलेट ट्रेन इस दूरी को मात्र 54 मिनट में पूरा कर लेगी। दिल्ली-वाराणसी हिस्से में दिल्ली, ग्रेटर नोयह होगा किराया 1इस हाईस्पीड ट्रेन का किराया 4.5 रुपये प्रति किलोमीटर आंका गया है। इस हिसाब से दिल्ली से लखनऊ का किराया 1980 रुपये, दिल्ली से वाराणसी का 3240 रुपये और दिल्ली से कोलकाता का किराया 6636 रुपये होगा। 1डेढ़ घंटे कम हो जाएगी दिल्ली से लखनऊ की दूरी1बुलेट ट्रेन चलने के बाद दिल्ली से लखनऊ की दूरी डेढ़ घंटे से कम, वाराणसी की दूरी ढाई घंटे से कम, पटना की साढ़े तीन घंटे से कम तथा कोलकाता की दूरी साढ़े पांच घंटे से कम समय में पूरी होगी। 11531 किलोमीटर लंबे इस रूट का काम तीन वर्ष में पूरा करने का प्रस्ताव है। बुलेट ट्रेन से यह सफर महज 1 घंटा 53 मिनट में तय होगा। इस पर 46 हजार करोड़ रुपये खर्च का अनुमान है। 12021 से शुरू हो सकता है काम1कुल 1474.5 किलोमीटर लंबे दिल्ली-कोलकाता हाईस्पीड रेल गलियारे का निर्माण 2021 से प्रारंभ होने की संभावना है। इस पर लगभग सवा लाख करोड़ रुपये की लागत आने का अनुमान है।

I read the TOI report. Its 1hr 30 mins for lko and 2h 30 mins for bsb approx. While the cost for economy seats through flights is same as that of a possible bullet train, you need to take into account the time taken to board the flight and depart the airport at destination which approx takes around 90 mins on normal days. If anything, i would say that bullet will cover the distance in less total time.
