रांची कोलकाता के बीच वंदे भारत एक्सप्रेस की सौगात मिलने वाली है। अब झारखंड और बंगाल के रेल यात्री भी सेमी हाई स्पीड ट्रेन में यात्रा का आनंद लेंगे

रांची कोलकाता के बीच वंदे भारत एक्सप्रेस चलाने की तैयारी पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे द्वारा की जा रही है। इसके लिए सेमी हाई स्पीड ट्रेन के कोचों का निर्माण चेन्नई स्थित कोच इंटीग्रल फैक्ट्री में किया जा रहा है। वंदे भारत एक्सप्रेस के कोच के अंदर के लुक को झारखंड और बंगाल कि संस्कृति के हिसाब से डिजाइन किया जा रहा है।

देश भर में दो वंदे भारत ट्रेनों का हो रहा परिचालन

अभी देश भर में दो वंदे भारत ट्रेनें चल रही है। एक बनारस से नईदिल्ली के बीच और दूसरी नईदिल्ली से माता वैष्णो देवी कटरा रेलवे स्टेशन के बीच ट्रेन का परिचालन किया जा रहा है। इस ट्रेन को ट्रेन 18 के नाम से भी जाना जाता है। देश के अलग अलग रूट पर 150 से ज्यादा सेमी हाई स्पीड ट्रेन चलाने की तैयारी चल रही है। अलग अलग रेल मंडल और जोन वंदे भारत के रैक की मांग कर चुके है। रेल कोच फैक्ट्री युद्ध स्तर पर ट्रेन 18 के रैक तैयार कर रही है। उम्मीद जताई जा रही है की अगले वित्तीय वर्ष में कई वंदे भारत ट्रेन दिखेंगी।

शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस को रिप्लेस करेगी वंदे भारत

रांची और कोलकाता के बीच चलने वाली शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस को रिप्लेस करेगी सेमी हाई स्पीड ट्रेन। शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस के बदले वंदे भारत एक्सप्रेस का परिचालन अप्रैल से शुरू होने की उम्मीद है। इसके लिए स्पेशल कोचों का निर्माण जारी है। उम्मीद जताई जा रही है की अप्रैल तक पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे को ट्रेन का नया रैक मिल जाएगा। इसके बाद रांची से ट्रेन का परिचालन शुरू कर दिया जाएगा। शताब्दी ट्रेन के मुकाबले इस ट्रेन का किराया अधिक होगा।

** In spite of same operating speed, VB is giving higher avg speed (of about 10kmph) than Raj operating on the same route due to Faster acceleration/deceleration as well as a liitle bit of higher priority
** Push pull means higher avg speed of about 5kmph depending on terrain and no, of stops.
** Tejas is a cosmetic arrangement and shall give same avg speed as Raj as operating speed is same.

Still without VB Rakes, Shatabdi TT can be easily cut down to 8 hour 15 minutes run, IR had removed the DHO halt in ZBTT but still increased 15 minutes in its runtime, this is when BPL Div has increased its MPS to 130 kmph from previous 110 (12002 Shatabdi used to run on 3rd line which had 110 kmph mps), 10 years back they have demanded the 8 hour run till RKMP (then HBJ) with 130 kmph in BPL Div. With VB rakes, NDLS-RKMP is easily possible in 7 hours 30-40 minutes. CSMT Rajdhani is doing NZM-BPL in less than 8 hours with 130 kmph MPS, with VB covering extra 14km with 160 MPS for almost 200 km is not a big task. But Yes this route doesn't have much political support, even a inauguration of India's 1st World Class Station failed to fetch any new Trains for Bhopal, even...
no announcement had been made then hoping for VB rakes before other routes is a very distant dream.

** Way back in 1989 when extension of shatabdi to BPL was announced, NDLS-BPL was done in 7:40 hrs (probably timing was NDLS dep 6:2) BPL 14:00-14:40 and NDLs arr 22:00.
** MPS was 140kmph on Delhi-Agra, 120 kmph upto JHS and till BPL it was just 100 (may be 110kmph on a portion).
**It was reported in local newspapers that CR officials were afraid that condition of JHS BPL track was not good and there were 60-70 kmph restriction on the section. Still the Shatabdi was able to maintain
** Today with MPS higher by 10-30 kmph throughout the route and improved signalling, the avg speed has fallen. Traffic congestion (in addition to more stoppages) seems to be the predominant factor.

NDLS 615 BPL 1355/1440 NDLS 2225. With VB 160kmph upto Agra and 130kmph upto BPL it can easily cover in 7hrs leave NDLS at 600 BPL 1300 HBJ 1320/1440 NDLS 2200.

Agree. The time taken or alloted to Shatabdi in some section is more than which is actually required. Sections like AGC-MRA, GWL-JHS and LAR-BPL can easily cut the 20-25 minutes from its Time Table. Shatabdi being a Premium train and an alternate to the Dedicated Rajdhani to Bhopal can have the top most priority over other trains, by this IR can actually save time and let it arrive NDLS before 11 PM. In return even with 150kmph MPS it is taking almost same/more time as a 130 kmph train between AGC-MTJ-NDLS, not to mention that the 130 MPS trains also have some slack while entering Delhi. So some time can be cut from there too. I know because of ZBTT most the arrivals departures are also changed at NDLS but still some cut down should have been done in its TT. But seemingly IR is going to boast about the speedup...
its going to get after getting replaced by VB.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake.
