With an aim to cut down on the travel time, Indian Railways' South Western Railway(SWR) zone has upgraded the railway tracks in its sections which will help the railways to operate trains at a speed of 110kmph.
According to a statement issued by SWR it carried out various requirements and changes which will help in operating trains at a higher speed.
Steps such as, "Increase in super-elevation at curves, correction of transition length, through tamping, attending points and crossings with track machine named UNIMAT have been completed. Recouping of Ballast to maintain cushion,
Dadar - Hubballi - Dadar Exp can be converted into SF now, with upgrade in speed.
TT should be such that it reach BGM by 0530 and Hubli by 0815. Also there should be a connecting train to SBC/ MYS by 0900.
Yes, better to club the this train with Vishwamanava Exp, and run up to Mysuru.
Slight realignment with Vishwamanava is ok, but extension is not preferred. Extension of dR UBL if thought of should be to Ballari/ Guntakal. For Bangalore Mumbai, we should get a proper SF via SUR, RC, GTL. For MYS, CSMT MAJN Rocket SF should get extended.
