Ranchi to kharagpur
2 options :-
1. 18628 ranchi howrah intercity via DHN, ASN + Any train from howrah
2. Hatia Kharagpur passenger via PRR, ADRA
Which route is more scenic and beautiful?

Purulia-Adra route is way better in that case. You can get very light glance of Ajodha hills few miles before entering the city of Purulia. Joychandi Pahar can easily be viewed before entering Adra. Starting from Tulin, the whole route is very green and scenic. And yeah, I forgot about Adra, Bishnupur forest reserved areas. Bengali people or regular travellers on that route can describe you better.

Ranchi to Muri is very beautiful, so both trains will take that route anyways. Beyond that there is nothing out of the ordinary. Bokaro - Dhanbad section is very dull and and very less vegetation. However if you like rustic/mines then you may like that section too.

Most of the routes in Jharkhand are scenic from many angles.. Be it moutains / hills / rivers/ streams etc ... If you want to really see ugly routes, travel between Jhajha - Patna - Chhapra

Depends on it departing Mgs and Ald and then reaching cnb. If it departs ald before 4, it generally reaches cnb before 6 and it leads cnb shatabdi. could get late b/w garhwa and nabinagar for mgs. son nagar junction is another slowing point. Its margin of error is almost zero to lead cnb shatabdi from kanpur.

1 compliments
U may start but not via MGS-ALD-CNB
1 Humsafar should be started between PNBE and NDLS, looking at the success and occupancy of Patna Rajdhani, no one could deny that It would become one the most successful train of this category as well as of this route. What's your take?

Difference dekh lijiye sir ..
Ek rajdhani hai ..Patna sey Jo top priority train hain ..
Ek superfast hai Jo 130 par chalkar sbsey high priority milti hai....
Phir ek humsafar bhi aayegi
..Jo baaki sbsey high priority hogi.....
Kayi rail ministers aaye aur gaye ..BT Patna key trains kaa run waisaa hi raha hai....

Kuch logon ke trains ki roz maari jaati h isliye wo samajhte hain ki pnbe ki koi aukaat nhi h..
Bhai log pnbe runs parallely with hwh in terms of priority and even exceeds it..
Aaplogon ka jo highly overrated bsk aka don h it is nothing compared to patna's sampoorna kranti..
Aur agar humsafar chali to vo via mgs cnb hi chalegi aur
apni priority khud set kr k chalegi

Yesterday (06:26)   Bullet train on track, work to start in 2017

GTL RC OHE OMG 😲^~   5 news posts
Entry# 2215622   News Entry# 298060         Tags   Past Edits
Work on the ambitious Rs1 lakh crore Ahmedabad-Mumbai Bullet train project, the country's first high-speed rail corridor, seems to be picking up speed. The groundbreaking ceremony of the project, which involves construction of a 505-km line using Japan's Shinkansen technology, and was first proposed way back in 2004, is expected in the current year itself.
A recent report in Nikkei Asian Review said that the Indian government has brought forward the groundbreaking ceremony to within 2017. The report said that trains could be running between the two cities at a speed of 320 km per hour by 2023.
Nikkei report said that detailed design study for the high-speed project has formally begun. On completion, the Bullet train will reduce the travel time between Ahmedabad and Mumbai from the current eight hours to just over two hours.
A senior Gujarat government official confirmed that there is a lot of movement related to the Bullet train project of late.
"The project's construction work is expected to start in 2018 and is estimated to be completed in five years," he said.
The timeline for starting work and making the Bullet train operational may not be coincidental, as the next Lok Sabha elections will take place in 2019 and the one after that in 2024.
Chief secretary JN Singh said that the Gujarat government holds 25% equity in the ambitious project, but primary execution of the project is being done by the railways.
The cost of the Bullet train project was originally estimated at close to Rs98,000 crore, of which the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) would fund 81% or nearly Rs80,000 crore. The remaining funds would be contributed by Indian Railways, and the governments of Gujarat and Maharashtra.
Minister of state for railways Rajen Gohain said in the Parliament recently that the cost of the corridor is expected to go up by about Rs10,000 crore due to the decision to construct it as a fully elevated project. The decision is aimed at enhancing safety and reducing land requirement for the project.
The terminal in Ahmedabad is planned to come up at the existing Sabarmati railway station, while in Mumbai, the plan is to build it under the Bandra Kurla Complex.
An engineering marvel
The Bullet train project, which is expected to revolutionise country's transportation infrastructure, will be an engineering marvel. Even as the government is mulling the entire project to be an elevated one, around 7 km stretch of the line between Virar in Mumbai and Thane will pass under the sea. This will be the country's first undersea tunnel.
As per feasibility studies, the line will have 12 stations between Ahmedabad and Mumbai. The trains will make halts at Surat and Vadodara. The travel time between the two cities will come down to two hours and seven minutes, which is almost one-fourth of the current travel time.
The planned fare for the route will be around Rs3,300, one-and-a-half times the price of a AC class I ticket currently. It is expected to carry about 35,800 passengers a day initially.
The trains will run on the same 1,435 mm track gauge as Japan's Shinkansen bullet trains

No it is 200km/h. Borderline HSR in BG fastest capable loco we have is WAP5 max 225km/h with upgrades so new Locos will be needed for greater speeds.

Elevated corridor impractical for long distances because they are costly, Japan can use elevated corridors everywhere because their distances are small. But, we have long distances between cities, so best option would be to use High Speed Trainers which can fit various gauge like HSR Talgo trainers or ICF can be used to make our own BG HSR trainer.

They are not going to extend dedicated HSR, instead they are going to build an upgraded BG HSR corridor which is little less expensive.

Brand new LHB rake spotted at Nagpur halted on PF 2. I could not take more details about it. But i think it was heading towards Wardha end. The rake was fully locked and marked as 172XX/C series. I could not see zone markings as I took picture from overbridge with limited view.
