The railways has decided to preserve five of its metre-gauge lines across the country and run them as heritage lines, in a shift from its plans to convert all of them in to broad-gauge ones, sources in the ministry said.
The lines to be preserved include sections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Assam, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat. Sources said these lines are linked to tourist destinations and were earlier identified for gauge conversion, but now will be retained as heritage lines.
Among them is the around 30-km-long Mhow-Kalakund rail line in Madhya Pradesh, which,
Means there will be no GC?
Routes mentioned in news will be preserved as MG. For other routes GC will be.
Means NER Mailani GC will stop now...
If yes then for tourist attraction railway must add some reserved coaches too
GC will not stop, alternate BG line will be created on these routes with different alignment.....for e.g. Mhow - Patalpani - Kalakund - Choral
BG route on new alignment shall be constructed for the preserved MG sections instead of doing GC. Preserved MG routes (Scenic hilly track) shall be used for tourist trains.
