PG reply from CR :-
Date of Action : 13 Jan 2016
Details : Introduction of new train is under the purview of Railway Board. However due to severe path terminal constraints at Mumbai area ,it is not feasible to run new train .In addition to this Mumbai C.S.T. to Kasara (C.R) Churchgate to Andheri (W.R.) are two separate corridors ,Hence it is operationally not possible.

Recent news about advance version of MRVC type rake to be used in Rajdhani/Shatabdi :-
In one of the biggest moves in the passenger train segment, the railway ministry has allotted Rs 2,952 crore for the purchase of 15 train sets, for use on Rajdhani and Shatabdi routes. Train sets are technologically advanced versions of local trains that run in Mumbai's suburban network and can touch a speed of 200 kilometres per hour. One of the advantages of a train set is that, unlike conventional trains, it has a driver's cab on both ends, and can be reversed without loss of time.

This report is about the trip which I and Vaibhav Sarin made on the weekend of 28th July. The prime motive of the trip was to travel in one of the Shatabdis as I haven't been on any one of them and experience sustained high speed. So initially we thought of going to Gwalior which was not very far yet could give good experience of Shatabdi. But later on I proposed to go to Bhopal to which Vaibhav agreed readily. So we did reservation for Bhopal by Shatabdi(2002) Chair car for 28th July and return by Bhopal Express(2155) 3A on 29th July. We were looking for a branch line travel in Bhopal other than mainline Delhi-Chennai. Only other line
that goes from Bhopal is towards Indore which comes under Western railway to our surprise.
On morning of 28th 5.30 am we were on pf no. 1 of NDLS. The rake was already put in place when I came. The first generator was of Rajdhani and making loud noise. Loco was WAP-5 30000. We then came back and settled in our seats. The coach was dull. Colour was pink tinge in coffee color. The lights were not bright enough. Outside rain made the interior very damp. Our seats were the last in coach 67,68 near the door. Other coaches were better with good lightings, wall paintings and color. The number of foreign tourists seemed to outnumber the number of local travellers in train. The windows were having double glass with white moth balls indside them which looked odd.
Train started slow and stopped just outside the pf. The Bareilly shatabdi also took off with us and ran parallel for some time. Again on HNZM we stopped for 2 minutes. The run was slow till TKD, then it suddenly gained speed. We passed Faridabad at good speed (100+). We chatted for some time with catering staff. He told us that though train belongs to NR but everything is looked after by CR people, even the drivers are from CR. He did justify by saying that it runs mostly in CR territory.
The run mostly was good around 100 but it did not excite me as I used to dream that it will run at sustained speed of 120. Why shouldn't I be as till some time ago it was the fastest train on IR! It hardly touched 120, I am not sure. We were delighted to see 2952(Mumbai Raj) on its way to NDLS just outside Mahtura on Mumbai tracks.
We reached Agra, 30 minutes late. That was a disappointment as I thought that if it reaches Agra at 7.55 am, average of 100, then it must run sustainably at 100+ for it to makeup slow run till Faridabad and slow runs due to other reasons. Vaibhav was totally unexcited as he told me that he has seen higher speeds in Howrah Raj which has reportedly been cleared for 140.
We reached Gwalior 29 minutes late. Most of the foreign tourists alighted at Agra and Gwalior. Now strength in the train was very mearge. We went through whole train. Coaches were empty. The passengers too were mostly sleeping. The low occupancy plus most of the passengers sleeping made the atmospehere dull. Bhopal Shatabdi seemed to have very loe patronage. We sat on different seats of different coaches. The executive class too was empty. It hardly had 10-12 passengers when we saw it.
We went to attendant with cassette of "Lagaan" to play it. The speakers of our coaches were poor. Very little sound was coming overwhelmed by clickety-clat and rumblings of train. We could hardly enjoy the music. Though it was better in other coaches. We reached jhansi 20 minutes late. There we were surprised to see HNZM-Trivandrum Raj. We could not see any reason except that there maybe some problem in Konkan railway.
We bougth CR timetable at Jhansi. At Jhansi lunch was loaded. Vaibhav was delighted to know that lunch will be served. The Jhansi to Bhopal run was good with average mostly above 90. Train did not stop anywhere in between. At one time it looked as if train is going to reach before time. But it reached on time 14.10.
The rake is cleaned at the platform itself for return journey which is at 14.50. That is why in the announcements the announcer urged passengers to carry mineral water bottle with them so that they save on time to clean. Very few passengers alighted from train. At Bhopal train was virtually empty. I think catering staff were more in number than the actual passengers. The rake was quite old and return of coach in which we travelled was due in coming october.
Overall satisfactory journey but no feeling of high speed and glamour of Shatabdi. One thing is that I have travelled to Bhopal many times while going to other places but this was effortless travel and never felt like I am 705 kms away from home when alighted.

I am sorry Mr Shivam but tum me na sportsman spirit hai na hi railfanning karne ki basic morals hain.
Senior ho ya Junior tum Dull bolke kiski post ko negative feedback doge, vo senior railfan keliye insulting hoga aur agar junior railfan hua, uskeliye vo discouraging hoga. Jo ki galat hai.
You are actually with dull info.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
