Inaugurated on January 13th, 1977 by the then Railway minister Sri Kamlapati Tripathi from Bangalore City station. Used to be a bi-weekly, operating from Bangalore on Mondays and Thursdays and used to run combined with the Kerala portion between Jolarpettai and New Delhi.

The smoke and chugging sounds ( The sound of an airplane in case of the EMDs) set aside, I don't observe much difference during a regular run. The ALCO's do give a cruising feel when they are switching motor configurations, but for the most part, there I don't feel any difference in the ride quality. Acceleration is definitely more rapid for the electric locos, but unless the LP is notching up aggressively, the difference there too isn't much.

Agree with your first 2 points. :)
But the diesel engine of the locomotive does not show any effect on the ride quality for the diesel-electric locos. The transmission is electric in all mainline ALCO's and EMD's. Stray vibrations etc in the motion of the diesel engine pistons are not directly transmitted to the traction motors as they are not mechanically connected, particularly so in case of the EMD's as they have an AC-AC transmission. But it does result in a less rapid acceleration as there is a limit on the current the on-board generator/alternator can supply.

* Rightly said sir, vibrations of diesel engine are directly transmitted to the mechanically coupled electric generator and not to the coaches where paxs are seated.
* The difference in ride quality is mainly felt when train starts from rest when loco demands huge power to overcome the huge static friction of stationary train. Eloco can smoothly overdraw more electric power from huge reservoir of power available through OHE lines at those few crucial moments and diesel loco could not get that from its diesel generation set. This cause a little bit of jerking effect. Similarly a little jerk is felt when LP some times tries to suddenly accelerate the late running train when speed restriction zone ends during a run.
...
more...

* The traction motor & its power transmission to loco wheels in both locos is otherwise similar. However, the regeneration facility normally available with the contemporary AC-AC transmission E-loco is additional feature.

It used to be a junction. There was a meter gauge branch line to Ramsai branching off here. The route is now abandoned.

Shri Shakti has only 4 halts between NDLS and JAT and an average inter-halt distance more than 100 Km! It would be a waste of a WAP7. JAT mail with more than 25 halts will need it more!

Ok. thats a smart move rather technically correct to provide a WAP7 which has high power output and can pull more load ,simultaneously (compared to a WAP4) accelerating quickly. Only this aspect is usefull for most of the trains. It will hardly cross 110 KMPH , may be TT of JAT Mail is made to ensure that it consumes that slack time alloted to it.
Got It ! :-)

But, in future Shri Shakti is going to get a sanction of 130 MPS atleast for NDLS-UMB section by October wef from launch of TAAG 17-18 (October-June). Accordingly , TT will be modified. If NR wishes to provide WAP4 , they will provide 130 KMPH fit WAP4 , which GZB ELS has in decent numbers. They would simply provide it WAP7 if available as that wins the number game by a handsome margin ! :-)
