    There was some persistent glitch, requiring us to stop and restart all the servers. This led to a 30 minute outage. Really sorry about that. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    There have been some reports that the IRI Atlas is not visible. This seems to be some problem at the Google Maps end. To resolve this, please log out and log back in, and everything should start working. Thanks.

    Over the last month, several enhancements have been made to the IRI Atlas. Following are the salient points: . 1. Previously, the tracks were crude with many straight line segments. Only on clicking on the individual tracks, it would assume a finer form. Now, the tracks are refined even on the overview...

What does it take to build a link line (not more than 1 km in length) connecting Ahmednagar to Manmad track with Aurangabad to Manmad track between Yeola and Ankai? By doing this the travel time between Ahmednagar to Aurangabad will reduce by a whole 1 hour as the train can switch between the 2 lines without needing to go to Ankai or Manmad and without any reversal. Similar connecting line can be constructed at Daund Junction as well to enable trains from Pune to go to Ahmednagar directly without undergoing a reversal exercise at Daund Junction and thereby saving half hour.
Now, whats the advantage? Trains from Pune to Delhi / UP / Bihar / Howrah can save half hour by not going to Daund (where anyways not many ppl board). The big one is that Pune to Aurangabad can

be covered in just 5 to 5.5 hours (same as bus journey time). The load between the 2 cities in sufficient enough to fill 2 intercity trains, one starting in the morning and one starting in evening from Pune to Aurangabad, and much much cheaper than MSRTC bus fares.
We are looking at not more than 2 kms of railway lines for this. What does it take from railways part to build them?

I agree with DD and other stations too, where a bypass line will save lots of time along with man power needed for loco reversal and other things. So many SF's waste time there though they won't have official stoppage.

One would have alredy implemented in MAS and SBC where Perambur and KJM which are not fully used. Let me not pull DVD in picture but both said above are capable and was/is functional as by pass already.

Yeah. KJM by pass is helping a lot along with Perambur....Even Shoranur is helping a lot as most of the SF's by pass that...Dont know what is the problem with other stations :(

The problem with many other is that infra is not developed around those.
For BZA, gunadala can be developed. SC has many such.
I cannot say DVD for VSKP but yes, there are other stations too in this area.
These are the most congested in AP at least.

MAS and SBC are still acceptable as the number of passengers boarding from / alighting at those stations is pretty high. But that is not the case with DD. To take example of SBC, why does the LTT Coimbatore exp needs to run all the way till SBC for a reversal? Cant they not halt the train at Bangalore Cantt itself and reverse from there (which is in a very prime location and with many trains already having a stop there)? Why the through passengers should do a Bangalore Darshan?

They dont need to go for BNC or BNCE but can go via KJM. Few trains like okha MDU by passes and MAS SNSI also goes via KJM, I guess. KJM is actually busiest junctions by road to travel all corners of Blr and never lonely too.

Pune to Aurangabad in 5 hrs by constructing just 2 kms of rail line? Now thats interesting. Why cant railways think of connecting 2 of the 4 big cities of Maharashtra, apart from a halt at Kopargaon (for Shirdi)?

CBE-LTT comes via Hosur which wont touch KJM, where as CBE-RJT and NCJ-CSTM all come via BWT which can bypass SBC by going to YNK side from KJM.
