MAE ripoff, but better

You have a hot hatch right?

Vande Bharat and Shatabdi services will be merged to form Vande Bharat and Rajdhani services will also be merged into Vande Bharat but will have a separate livery.

We have the Pass KTx and the Pass KTx RH. The RH is just a race car with number plates.

ICE on top and IC at the bottom

They use same rolling stock but ICE only stops at the main stations while IC stops at almost all the stations.

There is an out of control freight train on the Mumbai-Pune line. Train no. 11245 , hauled by 3 WDG-6G’s (69005, 69024, 69002) and 2 WDG-4’s (70190, 70175) and has around 70 wagons filled with cotton, rice and non potable water. It is running at 120kmph, the max permissible speed of freighters. It is going downhill towards Mumbai. All the trains that are ahead the freighter have been rerouted onto the line towards Pune and all trains have been stopped.

They have dispatched 2 WAG-9H’s to go and assist the train in stopping. There is 1 concern though. There is a parked local train and a Kingfisher Rail train that are on the adjacent opposite direction track and the freight train might just enter it due to it’s momentum
