Standard Gauge in 1930's. 🙄🙄
I thought Standard Gauge is a new concept after Broad Guage.

That is true, historically. Standard gauge was a new concept after broad gauge. Broad gauge was started in 1836 and standard gauge later in 1845. Standard gauge became dominant in developed nations and is usually adopted for HSR as well.

For British India , Broad gauge was the 'Standard gauge'. All the routes in this TT were of Broad gauge.

It's the other way round. Standard gauge (4' 8.5") was the historical standard, being followed everywhere, right from the first public railway in England. The Liverpool & Manchester railway, the first public intercity railway in the world also used SG in 1830.

Broad gauge (any gauge wider than SG) was only adopted in a few cases, mostly before the gauges were standardized. The Indian variant of the broad gauge (5' 6") is only used in the subcontinent, Chile, Argentina and some commuter lines in the US.

Being on HWH-MAS mainline, the stretch between KGP-CTC, there is no direct connectivity for Mumbai, Gujarat and Rajasthan for the peoples of Balasore, Bhadrak & JJKR. Either they have to depend on KGP or BBS to board the trains for their respective destinations. Till today, no political leaders (MPs) from concerned districts have raised the issues with Railway Ministry.

So, IR (specially SER) should divert any train or introduce a new train from BLS thru. BLS, BHC, JJKR, ANGL, SBP & ROU route for above destinations.

A new train IR can start once the KUR-Bolangir line is ready. I had also made an imaginary train last year connecting whole of North Odisha, Coastal Odisha, Central Odisha with Pune, and then further to Mumbai. Take a look below.

Both stations (KGP or BBS) are far from BHC & BLS. If any one has to catch a Mumbai bound train fom KGP/BBS, than he has to go above 2-3 hrs. extra.

Where is the problem for running a train on above route.

Re# 5133767-12            Tags   Past Edits
I gave u a similar example. There is no direct train till date from Kharagpur to Amritsar. Passengers have to travel 2 to 2.5 hrs to HWH or 2 hrs to TATA or 3 to 3.5 hrs to SDAH to catch train to Amritsar. Kharagpur is many times bigger station than Bhadrak or Cuttack. So, in IR it is not necessary that every station will have direct connectivity to every other station.
SER will not run any train via long route from SRC to CSMT via Bhadrak whdn shortest route via TATA is available. You can tweet to ECOR for a train from BBS to CSMT via BHC, HIJ, TATA route.

Kindly take a look at this new line formation from Bangriposi to Rairangpur , further thus to Tatanagar. If railways think of connecting this stretch, then many benefits can be earned like :
1. A complete Kharagpur (West bengal) bypass connectivity will be possible for Odisha to North india.
2. Baripada, one of the important city of Odisha will get better train connectivity and thus the backward regions of Mayurbhanj district of Odisha will get more development prospects.

North Odisha people should demand it. Also it will be helpful for iron ore and other minerals transportation.
