I.M. have rather fast response, and by using V/f control in closed loop configuration you'll be able to control speed back to permitted range in a matter of seconds, hence you'd be able to get withing the permitted speed within a minute. on gradient certain leeway is allowed but most LP's have enough road learning of section to control the train well in time to reduce speed in advance, hence Over speeding rarely happens; such measures also help save energy, hence advocated by everyone, from SrEE TRO onwards till LI's
1. LP ko pata hota hai kab gradient aana hai he can reduce speed as per it. LP of express train are highly experienced. 2. Most gradients have there own speed restriction so that train don't get too excessive speed while going down a gradient. IR has done extensive test runs of all sections . 3. Most loco have recorder to speed record and other parameters and they can be checked randomly. So LP are also very cautious .

Glimpses of Lip-Smacking Food of 1st AC Of Patna Rajdhani. 😍😋😜 First up is The Evening Tea--> ~ Served in Bone China Cup-Plate with Premium Quality Tea (Tea-Bag) . The Tray was also Bone China made. (Watch out for the gradual roll out of pics in subsequent replies to this post or follow the #HA tag) ... more...
Soup--> ~ Served In Bone China Crockery- Bowl, Spoon ~ Sweet Corn Soup with Bread Sticks, Butter Chiplet, Salt and Pepper. ~ Must say it tasted great- I never drink soup (Always reject it when served) but I have to say that it was so tasty. ~... more...
In 2nd and 3rd AC, Tomato Soup is provided in Disposable Cups. #HA
How did the food taste[doesn't look too good for 1A]? Also, and correct me if I am wrong, isn't there is no limit to on how much you can eat in 1A[like no restriction on the kadhai paneer and stuff, since it is made in the pantry itself]?

THE ECR KING with GZB WAP 7 the only ISO certified Rajdhani arrived Ald with a massive delay of 15 hrs. After the arrival the LP came down and I and Harshit had 5 min brief chat with him. We asked our queries regarding the Panto's. He cleared our doubts very happily then LP said we are getting delayed now it's time to move. . Location-... more...
Because of the large number of pics for some trains/stations/locos, showing all of them unnecessarily consumes bandwidth. Hereafter, we shall be randomly showing 4 of all the available pics. At this time, only the 4 latest are being shown. Soon, we shall be randomizing this. Reply given by mod sir.
SF train is an ever green option because (1) All classes of accommodation i.e. AC, non AC reserved/ general accommodation are available, it serves people of all the economic strata from rich to poor. (2) Maximum patronage is guaranteed due to availability of all classes of accomodation. Chances of failure is minimum, very rarely SF trains run empty where as others do run empty in many cases.. (3)... more...
Maximum numbers of passengers can be accommodated. All 24 coaches carry passengers where as in rest of the options, 2 generator cars are used, which add to train load in addition generating noise and polluting fumes. (4) AC SF express is bad for IR as two generator cars cause loss of revenue and also no extra fare is collected by IR in lieu of that. In spite of being fully ac rake with 130kmph+ potential they operate like SF train only. ACSF trains normally run at sub-optimal load i.e. with lesser number of coaches than maximum permitted (24ICF/22LHB) and operate like SF trains only by way of 110kmph operating speed, similar priority and avg. speed. It would be better if AC SF trains could be made full length by adding more sleeper coaches to serve more passengers and give more revenues to IR without creating additional time slot in the saturated IR tracks. (5) Raj/Shat/Dur/Hums/Tejs at least give 20% extra base-fare to IR and give faster speed/ journey time to passengers are at least better than AC SF trains. (6) GR are good in the sense that GR ACIIIE berths are about 2-3% cheaper than ACIII, but the service is degraded by 12.5% by increasing the berths from 64 to 72. Even this extra revenue to IR is of no use which is frittered away due to costs involved in generator cars. For 24 side berth paxs the journey of GR is hell, while the rest 48 get a benefit by way of discount of 2-3 %. The disadvantage of generator coaches is already there. Most of the GRs are running with sub-optimal loads, give avg. speed of SF trains only, except a few GRs like MUM, MAS, etc,so no better than SF expresses. (7) SF expresses carry people of all classes and a is a true representive of Indian society, and integrate the people of all economic strata ,where as other premium trains separate the elite from the common masses.
