Standard Gauge in 1930's. 🙄🙄
I thought Standard Gauge is a new concept after Broad Guage.

That is true, historically. Standard gauge was a new concept after broad gauge. Broad gauge was started in 1836 and standard gauge later in 1845. Standard gauge became dominant in developed nations and is usually adopted for HSR as well.

For British India , Broad gauge was the 'Standard gauge'. All the routes in this TT were of Broad gauge.

It's the other way round. Standard gauge (4' 8.5") was the historical standard, being followed everywhere, right from the first public railway in England. The Liverpool & Manchester railway, the first public intercity railway in the world also used SG in 1830.

Broad gauge (any gauge wider than SG) was only adopted in a few cases, mostly before the gauges were standardized. The Indian variant of the broad gauge (5' 6") is only used in the subcontinent, Chile, Argentina and some commuter lines in the US.

Hi all. Need your advice. I am preparing a full family trip Balasore, Odisha to Ujjain, Somnath and Dwarka for the month of January 2021. Please advise if the below planning sounds good or some changes are needed:

Wednesday: Leave Balasore in the morning to reach Bhubaneswar by afternoon and catch the 20813 Puri Jodhpur Express.
Thursday night: Reach Ujjain and stay in
a hotel. Take a rest.
Friday: Full day visit in Ujjain and at night board the 11466 Jabalpur-Somnath express.
Saturday: Reach Somnath by 6 pm. Visit the jyotirlinga and immediately board the night at 10.35 pm departure 19251 Somnath-Dwarka night express. (is it possible to visit the Somnath jyotirlinga within 2hours and board the 19251 train)
Sunday: Reach Dwarka in the morning. Book hotel. Take rest and enjoy Dwarka full Sunday.
Monday: Board the early morning 16337 Okha ERS Express from Dwarka to Valsad. Night stay in Silvassa.
Tuesday: Leave Silvassa in the morning to reach Surat and Board the 8.30 am departure 22828 Surat Puri SF express till Bhubaneswar.
Wednesday: Reach Bhubaneswar at around 3 pm and take the 5 pm departure BBS Bangiposi SF express to reach Balasore.
Full 1-week itinerary covering Ujjain-Somnath-Dwarka cities.

Also, the Silvassa visit is doubtful, so if possible, kindly suggest any means to travel from Dwarka to Odisha after visiting the Dwarka city on Sunday. Any kind of chain will work.

Thanks, bro,....yes I am hoping that by January-Feb 2021, the situation may get better and under control. It's just a hope that I am keeping. Umeed pe duniya tiki hui hai. If the situation doesn't get better, then all plans are washed up.

I am a bit reluctant for the Puri-Okha express due to a very long journey route and timings. A very circular route is taken up. So understanding your advice, I will first visit Somnath directly, then will go to Dwarka and in end to Ujjain. So new planning need to be prepared by me.

You can also take Howrah-Okha from Kharagpur. It will also be convenient by using Dhauli. So you can take decision according to your suitability.
