Looks like NR is slated for 4 rakes of 16 coach Vande Bharats to be operational in next couple of months originating/terminating at NewDelhi-

1) NewDelhi Amritsar
2) NewDelhi Ayodha
3) Varanasi NewDelhi (reverse
4) Katra NewDelhi (reverse VB)

2 rakes already received, 2 in pipeline. I think that will complete quota for sitting class VBs from NDLS, post that we may see sleeper version from NDLS for long distance.

I think reverse vb with 16 coach can survive with additional stoppages as Jalandhar Cantt,Rajpura,Kurukshetra and Panipat along with rlwl quota for Ludhiana Jn and Ambala Cantt Jn.
We are seeing Malwa Express(although not fully ac) departs Svdk in morning and reaches New Delhi in evening is sucessful with intermediate stoppages along with end to end(Svdk to delhi).

They are planning a VB from Amritsar with 16 coach with dep at 800 and arrival 1300. If these are final timings then there will not be enough traffic to run both with 16 coach one after another with a gap of hour.

But as per old notification, Asr-Ndls vb will have ludhiana and ambala cantt as halt.
Also with additional stoppages already mentioned,Svdk reverse vb can fill 16 coaches.

We actually do not need to worry when it comes to Jammu and Katra to fill the train towards Delhi . There will always be enough passengers because katra is 24*7 pilgrimage affair and Jammu is an important administrative and trade center . Plus there is no fast connection in the morning hours like ASR and CDG have .. if ASR and CDG can fill reverse Shatabdis then it’s time for Jammu to get the leverage of mordernised railway system .. earlier it use to take atleast 9 hours to travel from Jammu to Delhi … it can now be done in 6.5 hours via VB ! So we don’t need to worry ..
LDH , JUC will now get multiple
VB options in the name of VB from ASR and SVDK in the morning … overall seats will increase …

    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...
