Pilibhit (PBE) - Mailani (MLN) section gauge conversion date finally has come and its expected that 67Km meter gauge route will undergo gauge conversion from 01-Nov-2017 as mega block for GC has been asked from #rvnl. If source to be trusted then deadline to complete project would be 01-Aug-2018. As on date its not clear to whom this tender has been allotted.
Train 15307/Nainital Express (MG) नैनीताल एक्सप्रेस (एमजी) TPU/Tanakpur --> ASH/Aishbagh already became history as MLN-ASH section is under gauge conversion. Most probably by Sep;2017 ASH-STP route would be open and from Apr;2018 entire stretch (ASH-MNL) might be open for public.
Aishbagh (ASH) - Sitapur (STP) 89Km section which is undergoing for gauge conversion since 15-May-2016 and as on date 80 to 90% work has been completed (Only track related; station building yet to get completed). If source to be believed a new intersection has been approved in GC where trains coming from Aishbagh (ASH) can go either to Sitapur (STP) or Sitapur Cantt. (SCC) which means new route from Aishbagh (ASH) to Shahjehanpur (SPN) will come in existence and this will server as alternative route from Lucknow junction (LJN) to Delhi (DLI/ANVT/NDLS) stations. This newly laid intersection will also help trains coming from Mailani (MLN) to go Gonda (GD) and Gorakhpur (GKP) route. - Added... more...

On 25-Jun-2017 visited Sitapur junction (STP) and tried to detail the ASH-STP GC status report : Track : 84 out of 86 km track laying has been completed however rest 2km pending track is from Lucknow area. Rail welding almost completed. Clipping is ongoing. Stone filling and finishing of track yet to start. At Sitapur railway station around 200 meters of track yet to get laid due to SCC-BUW single electric line which is operational. As on date no date been announced for taking mega block for laying 200 meters tracker (diamond crossing). Signal... more...
: Cabling for signals has been almost completed for entire stretch however only couple of signals can be seen as on date. Couple of old MG signals still can be seen which either will be uprooted or may be updated. Bridge : Construction or modification for all the major and minor bridges either been completed or almost completed. Gomti bridge which come in between Daliganj (DAL) and Lucknow city (LC) railway station is still under modification and expected to be completed by September 2017. Buildings : Only 30 - 70% work has been completed for many railway stations which means many of the stations building might not be fully ready while CRS inspection or inauguration. Overall status : Aug;2017 - Track will be ready & light loco can run Sep;2017 - Signal will be ready Oct;2017 - Station basic infrastructure would be ready Nov;2017 - CRS inspection can be requested Dec;2017 - Section commencement can be expected All above dates are tentative
RVNL, which is responsible for Aishbagh (ASH) - Sitapur (STP) sections gauge conversion, misses another deadline to complete GC of ASH-STP section. Now new deadline is Oct;2017 or Nov;2017 and this means (just assumption) CRS might be requested in month of Nov;2017 or Dec;2017 so on and average one can expect first broad gauge train in month of Jan;2018. - Special thanks to "☆गोंडा इलेक्ट्रिक शेङ ■☆*^~" for providing news link to forum.

(STP) - Mailani (MLN) section 106.92Km gauge conversion new deadline : Dec;2017 - As on date there is no news on mega block for gauge conversion of rest 69.0Km Mailani (MLN) - Pilibhit (PBE) section. - Other section which comes under NER have received new commissioning dates too for gauge conversion : - Gonda (GD) - Bahraich (BRK) section 60Km gauge conversion new deadline : May;2017 - Majhola (MJZ) - Tanakpur (TPU) section (under Bareilly (BE) -Pilibhit (PBE) -Tanakpur (TPU) total 101.79Km) 36Km gauge conversion new deadline : Jul;2017 - Mandhana (MDA) - Brahmavart (BRT) section (under Kanpur (CNB) -Kasganj (KSJ) -Mathura (MTJ) total 552.90Km) 08Km gauge conversion new deadline : May;2017
If source to be believed (LJN DRM and Planning commissioner) gauge conversion for Aishbagh (ASH) - Sitapur (STP) section would be completed in month of Sep 2017 so CRS can be expected in month of Oct 2017. If every thing goes as planned, which would not be, we can expect first DEMU in month of November 2017 or December 2017. Keep your fingers crossed. Now coming to Sitapur (STP) - Mailani (MLN) section the tentative date for gauge conversion completion is Dec 2017 however, add three more month so said section could be operational by April 2018.
