Success of MUM-AHM HST depends on many factors, some are with in the control of IR/Govt and many are out of control.

Govt/IR need to manage it in a better way and try to replicate the Japanese Shinkanshen Model which is financially performing best among all the HSTs including the rich European countries like France, Germany, Italy, Spain, GB etc.

conditions are similar to Japanese conditions i.e. very high traffic potential, The major factor which have to be managed is to keep the prices as low as possible so that a substantial fraction of Middle class, upper middle class can afford it.
.
Economic performance of India in next 8 years is the most crucial factor, if GDP/per capita income increase at fast rate, and benefits passed on to all classes (not just the riches), the paying power of public shall be high enough to avail the HST trains.
.
But the current trend in Indian economy, where state govts & central govts are competing to give almost all kind of subsidies/ privileges to strengthen their vote banks does not gel well for the future of Bullet trains. A major portion of subsidies are syphoned off and give rise to black money. Instead subsidies should be provided to manpower intensive industries so that people get employment and become financially strong.
.
Delhi Mumbai Industrial corridor under implementation is expected to bring in much needed development along the MUM-AHM HST route and a good stream of paxs is expected after some years of operation of HST.

If everything goes to plan, Sabarmati railway station will see its first train originate from there in March next year. Western Railway has decided to construct five platforms which will be able to handle stoppages of 24-coach trains.
Divisional railway officer Rahul Agarwal said construction work has begun and is likely to be completed by January . The officials said Sabarmati will serve as an alternative to Kalupur, especially for trains originating from Ahmedabad and headed towards Delhi.

conversion of the Ahmedabad-Mehsana line, the station will have three broadgauge platforms and two more are being constructed.
Officials said important trains like Ashram Express, Rajdhani and Delhi Mail will originate from Sabarmati. Officials said that Members of Parliament in meetings with railway authorities said that with Kalupur railway station reaching its peak, the Railways should have Maninagar and Sabarmati as terminal stations from where the trains can originate.
Meanwhile, an official said that the railways had set a target for on-board cleaning services in 26 trains and the service has begun on 21 trains. The five remaining trains will also get the services soon. The railways will promote its Clean my Coach mobile app and posters will be put on trains to make more people use it. The railways has been getting nearly 200 complaints everyday about coach cleaning.
The DRM also said that barring platforms 8 and 9, all platforms will have lifts. Platform 12, like the platform 1, will have an escalator.

पुष्पेन्द्र सिंह। गुजरात को देश की पहली बुलेट ट्रेन की सौगात साल 2014-15 के रेल बजट में मिली थी। हालांकि साठ हजार करोड़ रुपए का यह प्रोजेक्ट प्रधानमंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी की महत्वाकांक्षी परियोजना है। इसके चलते न सिर्फ केन्द्र सरकार बल्कि राज्य सरकार ध्यान केन्द्रित किए हुए। बुलेट ट्रेन को लेकर जापान औद्योगिक सहयोग एजेंसी (जेआईसीए) फिजिबलिटी अध्ययन कर चुकी है। इस प्रोजेक्ट के लिए जापानी डेलिगेशन भी लगातार गुजरात के चक्कर लगा रहा हैं। 15 फरवरी को भी जापान के अंतराष्ट्रीय मामलों के मंत्री मोरीसी तोशीबा के नेतृत्व में एक डेलिगेशन गांधीनगर में मुख्य सचिव जीआर अलोरिया से मिला। डेलिगेशन ने मुख्य सचिव के साथ अहमदाबाद-मुंबई के बीच चलने वाली बुलेट ट्रेन को गति देने को लेकर कई अहम मुद्दों पर चर्चा की।
साबरमती

स्टेशन को टर्मिनल बनाने को गति
साबरमती रेलवे स्टेशन को टर्मिनल बनाने की काफी समय से मांग उठती रही है, लेकिन बजट में उसकी घोषणा नहीं की गई। फिर भी प्रधानमंत्री मोदी का राज्य होने की वजह से साबरमती रेलवे स्टेशन को टर्मिनल करने का काम शुरू हो गया है, जहां मौजूदा समय में साबरमती रेलवे स्टेशन पर तीन प्लेटफार्म हैं, लेकिन मुंबई-दिल्ली �के बीच ट्रेनों की संख्या बढऩे से अब प्लेटफार्म की संख्या बढ़ाकर पांच करने का काम शुरू हो गया है।
मुंबई-दिल्ली की ट्रेनों को नहीं मिली गति
वर्ष 2015-16 �के रेल बजट में गुजरात के लिए कोई भी नई ट्रेन की घोषणा नहीं की गई थी, लेकिन ट्रेनों को विस्तृत करने और उनकी गति बढ़ाने और परिवर्तन की घोषणा की गई थी। दिल्ली-मुंबई के बीच ट्रेनों को गति देना था और इसके लिए पटरियों को मजबूत करना था। जिन ट्रेनों की गति 110 एवं 130 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटा है। उनको बढ़ाकर 160 से 200 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटा करना, लेकिन अभी तक इन ट्रेनों को गति नहीं मिल पाई है।
दोहरी लाइन को गति
वर्ष 2015-16 के बजट में वटवा, अहमदाबाद, साबरमती और �सुरेन्द्रनगर- राजकोट के बीच रेल लाइन को दोहरीकरण करने को हरी झंडी दी थी। हालांकि वटवा-साबरमती के बीच दोहरीकरण का काम शुरू हो गया। इसके लिए बजट भी आवंटित कर दिया गया है।

नहीं लगा रेल नीर प्लांट
वर्ष 2014-15 के रेल बजट में �अहमदाबाद में रेल नीर प्लांट बनाने की घोषणा की गई थी, लेकिन रेल नीर प्लांट को लेकर रेल प्रशासन गंभीर नजर नहीं आया। वहीं अहमदाबाद रेलवे स्टेशन पर सोलर सिस्टम लगाने की भी घोषणा की गई थी, लेकिन बजट नहीं होने से फिलहाल यहां सोलर सिस्टम लगाने का काम अटक पड़ा है। हालांकि अहमदाबाद रेल मंडल कार्यालय पर सोलर सिस्टम लगा दिया गया है।
ये भी की गई थी घोषणा
अहमदाबाद-महेसाणा, मोरबी-टंकारा-राजकोट, उमरपाडा-नंदुरबार, मांडवी- न्यू भुज, खंभात-धुवारण के बीच भी सर्वे की घोषणा की गई थी। वहीं वडोदरा रेल मंडल के उतराण-अंकलेश्वर, मकरपुरा-वडोदरा, आणंद-गोधरा के बीच दोहरीकरण लाइन का सर्वे की भी घोषणा गई थी। भुज-नलिया के बीच आमान परिवर्तन की भी पिछले बजट में घोषणा की गई थी।�
ये हैं मांग
- पश्चिम जोन का मुख्यालय अहमदाबाद में बनाने की मांग की जा रही है। यह माना जाता है कि पश्चिम जोन में छह मंडल हैं, जिसमें मुंबई, वडोदरा, अहमदाबाद, राजकोट, भावनगर और रतलाम रेल मंडल हैं। मुंबई और रतलाम रेल मंडल गुजरात से बाहर हैं बल्कि अहमदाबाद, वडोदरा, राजकोट और भावनगर मंडल गुजरात में हैं। इसके चलते पश्चिम जोन का मुख्यालय अहमदाबाद को बनाए जाने की मांग उठ रही है। हालांकि मौजूदा एनडीए सरकार ने पश्चिम जोन का मुख्यालय अहमदाबाद बनाने से नकार दिया है।
- जनसाधारण एक्सप्रेस अहमदाबाद से पटना के बीच सप्ताह में एक दिन चलाई जाती है, जिसे वाया वाराणसी होते हुए नियमित चलानी चाहिए। अहमदाबाद �से वाराणसी के बीच चलाई जाने वाली साप्ताहिक ट्रेन को भी नियमित चलाने की जरूरत है।
- अहमदाबाद से आगरा फोर्ट के बीच चलने वाली इस ट्रेन को ग्वालियर तक बढ़ाने की मांग उठ रही है। यह माना जाता है कि अहमदाबाद से शाम को रवाना होनेवाली आगरा फोर्ट करीब आठ बजे तक पहुंच जाती , जो करीब बारह घंटे तक आगरा फोर्ट पर खड़ी रहती है। यदि इस ट्रेन को ग्वालियर तक बढ़ाया जाए तो ग्वालियर, मुरैना, भिंड के यात्रियों को काफी आसानी हो सकती है।
- पालनपुर-भीलडी मार्ग ब्रॉडगेज हो गया है। इसके चलते इस मार्ग परभी ट्रेन बढ़ाने की चाहिए ताकि जोधपुर की ओर जानेवाली यात्रियों को आसानी हो सके।

AHMEDABAD: The Indian Railways has taken the project to upgrade Sabarmati railway station, which is proposed to be an alternative to Kalupur railway station. The railways have already invited tenders for adding two feeder lanes and an additional platform at the station.
Officials said that with railway authorities granting permission to convert Ahmedabad-Mehsana metre-gauge to broad gauge, Ahmedabad railway authorities have decided to add two feeder lanes and one platform at Sabarmati. This will increase accommodation of trains at the station. Officials said that they have plans for trains originating from other parts of the country and heading to North or even to Saurashtra to bypass Kalupur station.

said that they plan to provide a short halt of two minutes to long distance trains at Maninagar and then have the main halt at Sabarmati station. This will mean more trains originating from the city. Kalupur station is saturated and presently important trains like Karnavati Express wait in the yard for nearly 20 minutes being brought to a platform.
Officials said that they have noticed that trains coming from or going towards the north have the majority of passengers alighting or embarking at Sabarmati and hardly 20% from Kalupur. Also, with Bus Rapid Transport System connectivity nearby, travelling to eastern city parts also becomes easier from Sabarmati.
Railway minister Sadananda Gowda, during his visit had announced that the development of Sabarmati station would be taken up on a priority basis. Officials said that this has been a long-pending demand of the Ahmdabad division, but was kept in abeyance following political protests.

During his interaction with reporters, Gowda said that wherever he went, he first checked the condition of general toilets to ensure if railway staff followed cleanliness.

"Cleanliness is top priority for the Railways. I have asked all officials to ensure that they spend two to three hours at railway stations for the cleanliness campaign. Our Prime Minister has announced the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan for a clean India," Gowda said.
"I have requested all 13 lakh employees, by sending them messages to participate in the drive. I hope October 2 will be a golden day in the history of Indian Railways. I myself will participate in the drive with my officers," he said.
"Within three years, 13,000 bio-toilets will be set up so that human defecation will not fall on railway tracks," Gowda said.
