Mahe, no intent to spoil the enthusiasm - but it is too early to create these topics until allocations in current or future budgets. Otherwise, these topics will remain inactive till such announcements come thru.

BTW, SA-VRI-NVL-CUPJ is another vital link missed out Smile

Modi govt is planned to electrify all BG lines(100% Electrification) all over india before 2022..

So you can see all electrification projects in upcoming budget pink book..

Full Electrification Of Railways To Increase Train Speeds By 10% By 2021

Speaking to reporters, Ghanshyam Singh, Member (Traction) Railway Board said with the network being electrified through and through, it will increase average speed of trains and cut down travel time.

Electrification of railway lines are likely to increase the speed of trains by 10 per cent to 15 per cent

NEW DELHI: By 2021-22, the average speeds of trains will increase by 10-15 per cent when railways achieves 100 per cent electrification of its network, a senior official of the national transporter said Monday.
Speaking to reporters, Ghanshyam Singh, Member (Traction) Railway Board said with the network being electrified through and through, it will increase average speed of trains and cut down travel time.

"Electrification will not only increase the speed of trains by 10 per cent to 15 per cent but also line capacity by the same amount," Mr Singh said.

While 29,000 route kilometers have already been commissioned, 13,000 route kilometers more were just approved, Singh said, adding that work is underway in 20,000 route kilometers.

He said the railways is planning to convert all those diesel locomotives among its 5,500 fleet which have run for 18 years (mid life) into electrical locomotives, while the 1,000 diesel locomotives to be delivered by General Electric (GE) will be used for "disaster management and strategic needs."

"Converting them would cost us Rs. 2 crore per engine, while their mid-term rehabilitation after 18 years is around Rs. 5 crore. These converted locos will have 5,000 horsepower.

"These are completely 'Make in India' and a matter of great pride," Mr Singh asserted.

He said the new engines will be less polluting, more efficient and involve brand new technology.

While two such locos have already been converted at the Diesel Locomotive Works (DLW), a production unit of the Indian Railways in Varanasi, another two is in the process of being converted, he said.

This year, around 100 locos are expected to reach the 18-year mark.

A team consisting of engineers from Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO), Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW), DLW and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) worked on the project together.

COMMENT
The Indian Railways plans to complete electrification of its broad-gauge routes by 2021-22. It will also run freight trains in dedicated freight corridors on electricity.

Though electrification may help in quicker acceleration of trains, by itself it cannot bring down the journey hours. It is more dependent on infrastructure facilities at the terminal stations. Post electrification of MYS SBC section, not much speeding up has happened. The trains reach Bidadi, Hejjala, Kengeri, Nayandahalli, Krishnadevaraya before time and are held up for between 20-30 minutes, because platform at SBC is not available. Ultimately, they end up reaching SBC with delay. Similarly, even after substantial doubling and electrification of PUNE RU section, not much change in TTs of CSMT - MAS trains have happened.

Same is true for MS-TEN section.
No noticeable reduction in journey times even after doubling and electrification which was repeatedly mentioned as the major benefit of doubling and electrification.
So no real tangible benefits for the public except a small reduction in noise and smoke from the diesels. Rolling Eyes

No Srini and Ganesh,

you have missed, I suspect strongly though, the essence of the post: read these lines again, which are in bold:

Though electrification may help in quicker acceleration of trains, by itself it cannot bring down the journey hours. It is more dependent on infrastructure facilities at the terminal stations. Post electrification of MYS SBC section, not much speeding up has happened. The trains reach Bidadi, Hejjala, Kengeri, Nayandahalli, Krishnadevaraya before time and are held up for between 20-30 minutes, because platform at SBC is not available.

Lack of infra facilities at Bengaluru and even Mysuru is a sore issue. I personally experienced this as far back as 2003-04 when I travelled between SBC-MYS by 6231. Even with a single track on the entire route, there was no problem in its running between Kengeri and Srirangapatna or even Mysore outer.... However, it was slowed down and held for a long time because of lesser no. of PFs at MYS as a result of which it ended up reaching at 10.30 am or so. Likewise, after electrification if PFs at SBC are not available, then naturally trains are held up, but for this electrification is certainly not to be blamed. At MAS for example, the Moore Market terminal acts as a great great reliever as first of all EMUs do not intrude operations in the 11 or 12 PFs that MAS has. Beyond this separate operation at least between MAS-Thiruvallur of EMUs and mails again is a big plus, quite akin to separate tracks for mails and EMUs in the Bombay area. This practically off-sets the relative disadvantage MAS has as compared to, say, NDLS which has 16 PFs, but then in NDLS those very 16 PFs invariably host EMUs, suburban traffic plus even shuttle services, many of which are operated on diesel with one shuttle as I remember, between TKJ-ROK (Rohtak) being the only one operating with AC locos.

So what to talk of SBC, even the capital of India, NDLS is lacking some infra which is a given or taken for granted in the Chennai/Mumbai areas. 70-=odd years after Independence, it is only now that the 5th and 6th line, namely 3rd up and down line are coming up in a 2 km. stretch between NDLS and TKJ, beyond which again there is one up and down line to GZB and beyond, and ditto that for NZM and beyond. Now, there is also slow progress of the 3rd and 4th i.e. 2nd up and down line between ANVT-GAL or the Nizamuddin railway bridge over the Yamuna which hosts trains from NDLS in one direction and those like 12687/12903/9019 in another, from NZM side. At the moment if a train from NDLS enters the GAL/Nizamuddin bridge, then the train to GZB from NZM invariably stops for it and vice versa.

[b]But these are clearly infra constraints with the railways and state/city civic authorities not keeping pace (at times deliberately) with the pace of development and expansion of a city, and the consequent pressure on transport infra, especially rail infra, the condition of which as I see everyday, can only be termed as "woeful / pitiable and terribly inadequate".

Hi Khwaja,

TPJ-MNM is part of VM-TJ-TPJ-KKDI-MNM-RMM electrification project which is nearly 500 km. length. I think MDU-MNM which is a mere 48 kms., has been approved initially.

Personally, after MNM is electrified, I would prefer electrification of RMM-KKDI, bit to start from RMM side. I think broadly, by the 20th AC mail/exp. trains will start running on the DG-KRR-NKL-SA sector, after which at least in the coming budget, allocations will be made for TPJ-KKDI-MNM-Ramnad-RMM electrification.

There is also some progress on the VM-TJ sector, with initial concentration being on VM-Cuddalore-CDM sector.

No Seenu..MDU MNM RMM taking one stretch and TPJ MNM VPT taking one stretch..

VPT SCT section all marking done and electrification work going to start soon..

SR should run more train in below section,
1) Cuddlore - Virudachelam -Salem section - 197 km
2) Dindigal - Pollachi - Podanur/Palghat section - 219 km

What is the use of electrification if these section have just 2 to 4 sets of trains + less freight trains per day.
Electrification should be planned for section were 10 sets of pass + freight trains operated daily.

SR should explore running more trains in the above section before taking up electrification.

SA-VRI-CUPJ section
- Bengaluru - Karaikal Night Exp (Via SA, VRI, CUPJ)
- Mangaluru - Tambaram Exp (Via SA, VRI) or diversion of any one of the 3 mangalore trains to MAS.
- Ernakulam - Tambaram Exp (Via SA, VRI)
- Coimbatore - Tambaram Day Exp (Via SA, VRI)
- Cuddalore - Bengaluru Pass (Via SA, VRI)
- Tiruchchirapalli - Tambaram day Exp (Via VRI, CUPJ, PRT)
- Tambaram - Villupuram exp extended to VRI (Via CUPJ, NVL)

DG-POY-PTJ/PGT section
- Madurai - Coimbatore Day Fast Exp, RSA with Kovai Exp
- Tuticorin - Coimbatore Day Exp
- Rameswaram - Mangaluru Exp
- Rameswaram - Ernakulam Exp
- Mettupalayam-Tamabaram Exp (Via CBE,POY,DG, TPJ), RSA with Nilgiri Exp
- Kollam - Coimbatore Exp Night Exp
- Nagercoil - Mettupalayam Night Exp

Virudunagar - Manamadurai section should be used for running few train from chennai to Tuticorin/Nagercoil/Tirunelveli.

Chennai-Guruvayur Express should be split into two train

1) Chennai-Guruvayur Exp - Existing route + sectional coach to Nagercoil
2) Chennai-Tuticorin Exp - should run via VRI, TPJ, KKDI, MNM, VPT
