Sub-Express/Sufer fast Train Between Pune & (Kolhapur,Miraj,Sangli)
Everyday Thousands of People commute on this route (Min 100-150 Buses ), Mostly in daytime by Bus (Distance- 230 Kms,Highway NH 4,Approx Time 5 hrs ), There are day time trains like Koyna Express & Other trains takes around 8 Hrs,(Distance is 330 Kms ) hence many people do not prefer to travel by train even though the Fares are Cheap.
Why dont the Indian Railways run a Day time trains between this stations, with the travelling time between 4 to
5 Hrs, which is realistic as Avg Speed of train will be around 60-80 Km/Hr.
This will result in Huge revenue generation for IR, Time & Savings for the Travellers ( Presently Approx difference of Min Rs 220-300 One way ).

Its single line diesel track. barring KR, there is no other track on IR which will give such high average speeds on such a track.
While anyone who has traveled on that track will agree that there is a need for trains with better average and sectional speed, unless doubling and electrification is done, its almost impossible to compete with the very smooth, 4-lane NH 4

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

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
