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
Do family trip only after pandemic ends
Not in this situation especially if your entire family is going
Even I and my family was about to go to velankanni from KGP by 12663 till TPJ and catch karaikkal passenger to Nagapattinam this may
But unfortunately we cancelled our trip due to corona.
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.
Yes You Can visit Somnath with in 2 Hour but remember you can't take any leather product or mobile inside temple
