LESS JERKS in rajdhani / shatabdi / duronto..Passengers in Shatabadi and Rajdhani Express trains will have a more comfortable journey since tight lock couplers, imported from Sweden, will be installed in the coaches to contain jerks during travel

Reached delhi today (27-02-2012) via this train and it was hauled by WAP-4 from end to end and arrived 1 hr late at the ndls stn. i believe if it had been hauled by WAP-5/7 the loco would have tried covering the time since wap-5/7 are more powerful than the WAP-4's. Does it make sense?
And also the train reached MGS late by good 35-40 mins thus it had all the time in the world to cover that lost time.

WAP5 and WAP7 both have excellent acceleration but that does not mean WAP 4 is not capable of ensuring a train reaches it's destination on time . If a train is not able to cover up lost time it can be due to various reasons like another prestigious train already running late and priority being given to that train or lack of platform clearance at some station , priority being given to EMUs running on same track and so on ...

true, but when it comes to trains like rajdhani's, durontos and shatabdi esp on super fast routes(ndls-hwh, ndls-mum, ndls-bpl) wap 5 and 7 are obvious choices. And i also noticed it never touched the likes of 130's and 140's. I know wap 5 and 7 just touch these marks but they do ensure that they do touch such speeds but wap-4 today never looked like even close to it.

For folks who think doubling and electrification can speed up a train,,think again:-
Tn sk covers 650 km between ngp and bza in 10 .20 hours
Runs on trunk route,,advance interlocking fully double and full electrify..
Raj sk covers 620 km bet ju and dee in same time...
Ju
...
more...
dee is full diesel and around 350 kms is single line..

it might be true but if it is a single line just imagine how much track clearance this train will need to maintain this speed. on the other hand when tracks are doubled ,there is no need for any other train coming in opp direction to make way for this train.

Cut-off to serve dinner in a Rajdhani is 9:00 pm . For example Jammu Rajdhani departs NDLS at 8:40 pm Dinner is served almost immediately after trains departs from NDLS.

There is no official technical halt at Lonavala moving towards Mumbai but it is rare that a train gets an immediate green signal while approaching Lonavala.
