Good to hear speeding up of at least one train. But even after electrification between SRR-MAQ, the travel time for major trains remain unchanged.
Also any idea regarding trains in PGT-TVC stretch?

It should start from Kannur with more favourable timing. Only then iy will be profitable. The timings should be convenient for the passengers that was lacking earlier. Even the present timing is not different. This is not going to work. Why do the railways have to repeat failute stories again?

It is better to have a new line between KPD and BWT.. I estimate that it reduces the distance between BLR and CHN by 70km, which means travel time reduction by an hour to the passengers. It can also reduce the load of KPD - JTJ section, which is a bottle neck for SBC and CBE trains..

**Call of the day**
A nature of civilization is that it always spreads, exploring new places. So as it happens in our country too. Many new ventures like Industrialization, Education, Health, Habilitation etc are turning many places important day after day. As a result their railheads need to be refurbished too, but that is happening in a relatively slower pace.
Here I will list some places which are very important in recent times, but their rail stations have remained relatively smaller. Though many major trains stop at these stations, infrastructures have a scope

of improvement for them.
So in this constraint at which of these stations you wish Terminus Facility should be developed?

I wonder what mode would they select for RRTS. I read somewhere that they are planning for something that can get average of 100kmph. Moreover, the point is that any such new RRTS system that would be set up would be costlier as compared to existing system. So, such system would take some time to achieve initial success.
However, I didnot get the ratiionale behind Alwar extension when we have trains in that sector and roadways is also there.
