Pakistan railway has asked companies to present a study on the feasibility of the project. If this materialize then it is a very good project. Rawlapindi to Lahore in less than two hours. Great. Thumbs for new railway minister.
Drive safe, life is precious
its not only about the engine it all depends on the track too.
sometimes our trains get out of track. these tracks are not capable to handle speed of 100 plus i think so running faster trains is not feasible, unless the tracks should be properly maintained

@beeberg, if its a train like the one shown in the picture, it needs its own dedicated track... it cant run on our current tracks ...also these bullet trains are known for reaching very high velocities, hence they need empty tracks that are also fenced so that no one can sit on them...like ppl usually do .

Beeberg is very right. Tracks should be changed first. Speed engines are ready made available and successfully running even in China....Gora Sahab ki bani hui building collapse horahi hayn to rail track kaysay reh sakta hay?
The current rail tracks are laid down since more than 100years and the proof is the years written over the main entrance gates of Lahore, Pindi and Karachi railway stations.
If this comes then bye bye Daewoo ....hello Train
The said Bullet Train, speed 250-300 Kms per hre....But the real bullet train speeds upto 300-500 Miles per hre not Kms...And there is a difference b/w Bullet Train and Speed Rails. Keep checking Discovery Channel that repeated the program on this topic twice this week. Sheikh Sb as a Railway Minister should have a knowledge himself instead saying the words what his MUSHEERS told him.
the most important thing over here is
TRACK N SECURITY
Gen Musharaf has given all type of GO Aheads
n interested parties hav been asked for this, if its final
it ll not b completed in a way like Pak Railways completes but it ll b faster
bye bye daewoo n pia 2

pindi say lahore tuk double track tu bicha nahee saktay, bullet train ka patakha chor dya hai... good election campaign .... and good going farzand-e-rawalpindi
please note... there is a difference between discouragement and facing reality... lets be realists for our poor ppl sake.
uhh.. not a good idea. it should b frm karachi to lahore not frm lahore to pidni.
tania doesn't liee.... Lahoriezz fo Lyfe
i d be scared stiff, in fast train.. me better off travelling in car why dont just open the the speed limit on motorway? and put barriers on both sides
,,, unless you know the track, you're not good enough to sit behind the wheel." K T
Launching the Fast/bullet train is the easiest part, doing feasibility study and implementing all the findings; educating people (especially from where the tracks will pass through) and then maintenance are the hardest parts.
I hop ethis time round the train fits on the tracks.
Hopefully this service wil be secure from goats/other livestock on the track and terrorists.
1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون
Well as long the will have under pass and over pass with frequent intervals and tell people to only cross the tracks from these location then it will be prune from goats and stuff.
Also distance between these under pass and over pass will also depend on these factors because if it will cause people to travel extra 2 miles to get to them , they wont be happy.
I thought every thing is fast in Pakistan
I'm a freak who lost his mind in the busy world of today and takes his frustration by being funny with others
Shiekh sb, is he minister for the country or Rawalpindi only, rightly pointed out by other members v need 2 develop the culture for use of these things & isnt improvement required in the whole of railway b4 v even start 2 think on feasibility of such projects. oh i 4got how much vil b the commision (i think a gr8 amount even 4 the feasibility study) , good thing though if it materialises in our lifetime &is not just a election compaign and a political stunt
My favorite vehicle now a days is a "GOLF" cart.
maximizing speed limit on motorway and putting barrier on both of sides wont help in prevention of accidents. these will occur more.
but i wish its limit is increased and heavy bikes are allowed there.

what is the speed limit on the motorway????????
Its not possible to run a bullet train on the existing track.
Thats why they plan to start b/w lhr and isb. to run a bullet train they need magnatic track and the train will not run on the track but in air between the magnatic field created between two tracks and it can only run without friction . if friction is caused it will melt down the track due the speed . Think about 100wheels running on 300 KMPS will generate so much heat that any metal will melt down. these trains are run in air between two tracks through the magnetic polarization upper negative and lower positive locked together . the polarization creates the thrust to run the thingee.
