Surprise from ICF!
Just like last month(October), Another VB with 16 car coaches got dispatched yesterday.
In total, ICF manufactured 5 Vande Bharat this month including one 16Car set against the monthly average of 4VB. Great Team Effort.

October month 16car VB alloted to NR.

Agree Agree:Let's see
Yeah NDLS-ASR and ADI-MMCT may get the two 16C rakes available.
Don't think any other route can sustain a 16C where VB isn't plying/started yet.

Re# 5898183-8              
Yes it may, but at the same time, there is also possibility of NR getting both the 16 Car rakes, one being the spare and another for Amritsar while WR can utilize it's one of the two allotted 8 car rakes for ADI-MMCT. The high amount of 16 car VB's originating from New Delhi is also a reason, RB can consider for with Amritsar count.

NR getting both 16C rakes would mean one is confirmed NDLS-ASR and other could be NDLS-LKO/Ayodhya

Although i think there is enough capacity and demand on NDLS-ASR section to absorb 2 VBs straight away.
One of them can be Early morning departure from NDLS.. like 6.10 AM types behind SVDK and AADR so that it reaches ASR 11.30 types.
can be late evening departure from ASR as there is no meaningful train from Amritsar after 4.50 PM Swarn Shatabdi departure.

The other can be already proposed 7.55 AM ASR departure and afternoon NDLS dep, although i would say it should also depart NDLS late evening types because from NDLS also there is no train to ASR post 4.30 PM Shatabdi Departure.

16 car would be better if they plan to run it in opposite slot of Solapur VB starting from Mumbai in the morning and Kolhapur in the afternoon

    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...
