Rajdhani Express, an emotion for every railway lover.

Rumours are coming that every Rajdhani Express likely to be cancelled permanently.

Rajdhani express needs Vande Bharat type EMU Train set.

Should Rajdhani Express need with Vande Bharat type EMU Train set?

Once sleeper Vande Bharat trains start their journey in IR, most probably Rajdhanis will be given the topmost priority. However, that will take some time. As of now, Tejas Rajdhani is the best possible option. Rajdhanis without a unique livery clearly destroys their grace.
By the way, the coach in the pic looks like a bezel-less coach. Am I wrong ?

I agree about all other things like speed will be limited to 130/160kmph only. So LHB too can do 160kmph with WAP5. But about comfort? LHB is less comfortable than VB.

I agree on the point that Shatabdi feels better than VB.

I have travelled end to end from MAS to MYS in both VB and SHT few times. VB's seat is as bad as Indigo's & the washrooms start smelling an hour into the journey for some weird reason I can't get hold off. Their constant onboard announcements are another reason to give thumbs down. I definitely got annoyed by the repeated advertisements played on loop along with constant voice about upcoming stop even though the train has just left the either
of the terminals. I can't say much about food since I have never opted for food in both.

SHT's in comparison are zen-travelling. No fancy announcements, washrooms remain clean throughout the journey, comfortable seats.

only drawback is LHB couplings tend to jerk more when the train starts or accelerates and that's with most of the LHB trains.

Correct! In my view, the food is also not good. I have experienced it. The pantry food is better than VB food. There are lot of trains offering good pantry food. But VB, no way. Lowest standard food. They just decorate to look good, i.e butter salt pepper sachets and spoons. taste and quality is C grade. Moreover, VB staff agreed that its made in very bad conditions. My VB trip, the train was delayed by 1:10 mins

    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. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
