What I observed today is though they have given 130kmph, it runs at that speeds for just 20mins, then slows down or halts. Literally it stopped at every major station outers- BSP, Jharsuguda, ROU near BNDM, Tata, KGP. So many halts at outer of major stations ruins the high speed run advantage.

When I was returning from an NFR Trip in July 2019 (Videos of it are already up, please do check them out); I had decided to come via Nagpur, thus covering that portion of the Mumbai Howrah Line, which was on my bucket list since forever. My train was running pretty well up to Jharsuguda. Then we entered S.E.C.R Territory; those of you who are familiar with this would know, it is (in)famous for its plethora of freight actions.

In the very first station after departing from Jharsuguda, I got
a glimpse of this. Ib, it is a station with the shortest name in Indian Railways's Network; followed by a bridge over the River of the same name. At Ib, the mainline towards Nagpur was occupied by a freighter, we were looped, obviously; and the second loop too was occupied by a freighter headed by twin WDG-4Ds from Visakhapatnam.

As soon as we left the station, we crossed the Ib River Bridge. And the freight sightings had just started. I was on the non track side seat, but trust me when I say this, we crossed as many as 9 Python freighters that day, none of which I could capture, mainly because I didn't anticipate any of them and also because my train was packed to capacity.

This was just the beginning. We were delayed by close to an hour and half by the time the train pulled into Nagpur Jn. The (in)famous freight traffic of S.E.C.R region had shown its effect. Hope you enjoyed this short clip.

NOTE: I have been told by multiple people about a station Od, in the Anand - Godhra section; which is also a 2 letter word station; I would like to clarify that I am aware of this, and nowhere have I mentioned that Ib is the only shortest word station in IR. So, hopefully, let there be no debates in this regard. Peace.

It looks like they've mentioned this station is near Chennai which is in TN.. which is not needed..
Cos here it has to be told where the station is and that is AP.
If they've mentioned station itself is in TN, that's wrong altogether.
