Keeping in view the current trends of economic liberalisation, the Railways is gearing itself for providing better customer services to the passengers and the people involved in goods traffic. In addition, there has been a great emphasis on faster movement of trains which has been possible with the introduction of the diesel and electric hauling of the trains. At present most of the railway traffic is being hauled by diesel or electric locomotives with the exception of a few tourist or vintage trains.

I just read in the Japanese thread that their consortium has won rights on feasibility studies on Mumbai-Ahmedaban high speed line. I was wondering why was this route chosen as potentially first among the myriad of other possibilities?

It's political in my view. The only route which should be chosen is Delhi Mumbai, just like the Beijing Shanghai HSRL. After that Mumbai-Chennai via Bangalore and Mumbai-Ahmedabad are close in the reckoning. There isn't any point in an HSR ending in Ahmedabad given how many buses and trains go there already. It makes more sense for a Delhi Mumbai HSR to go via Ahmedabad. Hope the next government is more sensible. On the other hand I don't see HSR being built in a hurry so don't hold your breath.

Beijing Shanghai HSRL was not the first high speed railway in China, it come after Beijing - Tianjin line, Wuhan - Guangzhou line. etc.
Maybe you can build Mumbai-Ahmedabad first ?
