  2. Nothing novel about the findings of this study, but it does give info about the financing of this line which will be provided by Japan. http://www.business-standard.com/article/current-affairs/mumbai-ahmedabad-distance-of-534-km-ideal-for-high-speed-rail-iim-a-study-116041300403_1.html
  3. Intriguing development: http://www.financialexpress.com/article/economy/railways-floats-r2500-crore-tender-for-high-speed-train-sets/93836/ I wonder if the Japanese rolling stock builders will leverage their experience of building emu sleeper trains (285 series and antecedent designs) to gain a marketing advantage.

The trains derailed just before midnight on Tuesday in the state of Madhya Pradesh, about 100 miles from the city of Bhopal.

  6. India will buy 200 electric locos from Japan. 30 will be built in Japan, the rest in India. Apparently the bid specifies a reliability metric, one in-service breakdown per 200k kilometers. No doubt the Japanese tech and quality is very good, but certainly reliability is a result of good maintenance, at least in part. Will these get it? Anyway, it will be interesting to see an EF510 in broad gauge. :) http://www.railjournal.com/index.php/locomotives/japan-to-supply-indian-freight-corridor-locos.html
  7. Well, not privatization, according to this interesting BBC article, but reform. I don't know the first thing about Indian politics, was Modi elected on a reform platform? Anyway, it seems a report was written, which did in fact recommend privatization, but the PM has promised not to do that. Apparently its recommendation is after the British model of separate owners for track and train, rather than the Japanese style of regional organization. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-32200190
