I was thinking whether it was possible to achieve 180 kmph speed of rrts on regular 5'6 broad gauge.
RRTS is good but it uses smaller gauge and we are ending up using three different gauge throughout the country. A RRTS arrangement on regular gauge would do wonders for our railway.

I am talking about fully ripping out the old tracks and use Concrete ballast base on busy routes.

This will serve two purpose 1)Facilitate high speed passenger trains 2)Facilitate Express train on the same track.
Ya'll Nibbiars clearly you are outdated. Didn't heard if the Nagpur Broad gague Metro?.

Train 18 hit by cattle again 🐄 🥴
Front part of train 18 is made of fibre glass or wood so breaks easily normal train are full metal thus don't get damaged this much. Full train tracks need boundary wall so this don't keep happening
Let's see how long can IR keep changing the nose cones. Had they used steel, they could've repaired it in their workshop. But this plastic one is fragile and non repairable.

It got repaired overnight and was back on trials next day. That's the true reason of using fiber glass work instead of Bull guard in front like other train engines of IR.
Wrong. FRP is non repairable and essentially use and throw. They replaced the entire nose with a new one.

BG can support HSR speed, there are no issues. The only reason MAHSR is SG is because Japanese OEMs won't manufacture BG trains. For example, Spain runs HSR on Iberian gauge (1668 mm) which is similar to BG (1676 mm).

I'm terms of visual appeal, cleanliness and anesthetics Mumbai redevelopment public spaces are the only ones meeting international standards.

This should be the norm in evey tier 1 and 2 cities but alas
Ya'll Nibbiars The Delhi once had but after the AKs there have been almost nothing and the ones developed 12 years ago are in bad state due to the DMC controlled by the NDA is in the state of denial this fight and tassel between the Central, State and the DMC will one day destruction the Infrastructure with costed hundread of billions of dollars and decades to make.

And on the other hand some Improvement is seen in the Kolkata will also post development from there. Kolkata has been catching up in the term of Infrastructure and public spaces.
