#iUsedToBe - Shatabdi
There are many examples that a train service is replaced by another type of train. Here I am listing out some of such trains. These trains were either announced or started as Shatabdi, but were later changed based on public demand or patronage. Let's see how popular these trains are and how they are performing in the changed avatar. So pls vote for your favourite one on which you would like to travel.
