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.
The King of ECoR, 20817/BBS-NDLS RAJDHANI EXP Furiously skipping through PF No.-1 of Purulia Jn behind it's regular & Powerful Loco WAP-7(P7 MARK) of Ghaziabad ELS & late by 25 minutes .
Perhaps, ANGL shed may get some P7 and P5 (for eastern side originating important trains) in future.
Another ELS on HWH-MAS stretch between BHC to KUR is badly required to meet future demands
Should make at Cuttuck or Bhadrak
Ecor can't get dependant on other zones loco after VSKP going to another zone. It seriously needs a new loco shed in HWH-VSKP route
Don't worry Vskp wap7 Locomotive will be still ECoR (Just like TKD electric shed WCR but TKD railway station zone NR ) VSKP station zone will be changed
