#Eligibility Do you think there should be a maximum cut off distance for Non-SF M/E trains? For example, if I say "Maximum cut off should be 2000KM" then it means beyond that distance only SF trains should be operated and no M/E (supercrawler) should be operated beyond 2000KM. ***************** The reason behind this poll is that there are many trains who genuinely need... more...
speed-up. For example consider trains like Vivek Express or Himsagar Express. If they are made SF then at least comfortably 8-10 hours journey time can be reduced which is really a big deal.
I have a little different opinion here. For distances as large as 2000-2500 kms, there should be a pair of SF and non-SF trains operating where the non-SF would connect the larger stations to the smaller stations while the SF should cover up the larger stations only for faster connectivity. For e.g. HWH-ADI Express is a pretty good train for people from small towns of maybe Odisha or Maharashtra to go to any other major city of Gujarat, but for end to end passengers this train is a nightmare, though being a superfast. A faster connectivity should be given for the sake of end to end passengers.
Agree.. This is actually implemented in various routes already ages back, for example TN started as a faster alternate to GT, coromandel started as faster alternate to mail, Geetanjali started as faster alternate to mail etc..
