New Timetable Changes for 2015-16: Western Railway

Western Railway has released their new railway timetable for the year 2015-16 to be in effect from October 01 2015, and in a huge surprise, almost all of their trains have been speeded up dramatically, from 10 minutes to 150 minutes, 13 trains among them having shaved off more than an hour off their running time! A spectacular and stunning achievement, when most zones in India have increased the running time of their trains. Western Railway is what all of Indian Railways must be! Big applause to the management!

This drastic speeding up of trains has been achieved by WR’s commitment at improving running infrastructure of their lines, and now the Virar – Ahmedabad and Virar – Godhra sections have been upgraded to support speeds upto 130 kph MPS (Maximum Permissible Speed), which is how all these trains could be speeded up. WR is reportedly working to increase these speeds to 160 kph, which is the maximum possible with our current rakes and tracks. Here are the details. Click the train numbers to view detailed new timings to come into force from October 01 2015. NOTE: This is only about mainline trains and do not include timetable changes for Western Railway Local trains of Mumbai.
