**Common people's chariot**
Shatabdi, Gatiman, Tejas- They are definitely a step forward to the future, but common people still connect themselves more with Intercity Express Trains cause they are cheaper, fast enough and allow unreserved passengers. Also sometimes they play significant roles in carrying tourists. So which of these routes you would like to see an ICE running on?
Note: The train should have a same day return like Shatabdi/ Jan Shatabdi; thus the journey time at each direction should not exceed 8.5 Hrs.
the Golden Quadrilateral for the best view; please let me know if it is appropriate and i will remove)

Friends, I have been searching for the answer to one of my questions, but getting nothing. That's why dropping the question in front of your able minds.
****Question: What is the longest distance in between two consecutive stations in Indian Railway?****
1) Here I am not asking about the longest non-stop run of a train, but asking about the distance in between
two stations who are next to each-other. Ex: Mumbai CST and Masjid.
2) Here I have put three options to give a chance to those members who know something but not sure of the correctness. Therefore please don't hesitate to vote even if you are not sure, but don't forget to comment.
Thanks in Advance

BWN(ER): Even after offering a stunning business (60-65 crore per year) which would envy even some if the A1 stations, IR is surprisingly reluctant to provide halts here. Over bridges are not good (Though escalators are being constructed), lack of refreshments, poor cleanliness (if you are not strong enough, you could vomit by looking into the tracks especially at platform 5,6) etc. The list can go on...
