It is high time that NDLS-LKO shares some of the load and responsibility with similar if not same speed as of NDLS-CNB. 493 km via MB-BE should have quality maintenance and travel time for 2 halts (MB,BE) train should be round 7 hours. An avg of 70 can be obtained while 130 MPS fit trains make it in 6 hours.

Actually Aggressive Time table not given in the section, that's exactly the reason while section is fit for 110 MPS......If you Observe this section (LKO-BE-MB-NDLS) maximum train has Slack time... Even Dibrugarh Rajdhani also given Slack time.
*** Slack time not to given.
*** Aggressive time table required
*** Stop time is not more than 2 to 5 mnts
can be cover the distance within 6.30 Hrs...!!
LJN-MB :4.30 Hrs (326 KM) - so many time 12557, 12357,12583 cover their delay of 40 to 50 mnts n reach. Alamnagar Before time.
MB-NDLS : 2 Hrs (166 KM ) So many time 12557 cover the distance within 2 Hrs.
