Lower-cost semi-high-speed trains

There are 81 train routes in India where trains already run at peak speeds between 120 and 162 km/hour.
Now, Delhi-Lucknow and Delhi-Amritsar likely to be the first train routes to get trains running between 160 and 200 km/hour.

NEW DELHI: Finding it tough to fund costly bullet train projects, the railways is working on low cost solutions to run high-speed trains with a speed of 160-200 kmph on existing tracks without much investment.

The state-run transporter is expected to run high-speed trains to connect cities 500-600 km apart in an effort to make inter-city travel faster. Delhi-Lucknow and Delhi-Amritsar are expected to be the likely routes to get semi-high speed trains, an official said.

"Railways is trying to induct new and innovative technology which will enable fast, reliable and cost-effective service," the official said.

To start with, the railways plans to buy a few train-sets from European or Japanese manufacturers which will be customized to run at 200 kmph on existing broad gauge Indian tracks. The official said the train-sets would be acquired through global tenders.

There is realization that running bullet trains (300-325 kmph) on the six identified routes, including Mumbai-Ahmedabad, can only be possible with foreign funding as the project is highly capital intensive which railways cannot afford at the moment.

The careless attitude could be only reason. We see many movies and videos of American and European tracks without "railway gate". But here we get more and more demand for manned l/cs every other day.

The 58-km-long new railway line, laid between Raichur and Gadwal by the South Central Railway, will be commissioned by Union minister for railways Mallikarjun Kharge at the Raichur railway station on Saturday.

He will also flag off the inaugural run of new DEMU passenger train, 77690/94 Raichur-Gadwal-Kacheguda DEMU. The new line will enable the people of Mahbubnagar district of Andhra Pradesh to go to Raichur in bordering Karnataka to catch express trains bound for Mumbai, Chennai, Kanyakumari, etc.

SCR officials told Express that SCR was making efforts to expand the rail network in the zone. The laying of the 58-km-long Raichur-Gadwal broad gauge line at a cost of Rs 300 crore is part of that endeavour.

Raichur is on the Guntakal-Mumbai main line in Guntakal division and Gadwal on the Dhone-Kacheguda main line in Hyderabad division.

Also, three new railway stations have been built at Chandrabanda in Karnataka, Pandurangaswamy Road and Priyadarshini Jurala Project Road in Andhra Pradesh.

Per international norms running 200km/h on upgraded conventional tracks is considered high speed. So if that can be done it'll be India's first real high speed rail line.
