No halt for Antyodaya Express at Visakhapatnam
The bypassing of the major A-1 grade station Visakhapatnam Junction by the 22877/22878 Ernakulam-Howrah Antyodaya Express (weekly) is drawing flak on Twitter. The train began its maiden run from Ernakulam on Monday.
Duvvada Railway Users Association secretary K. Eswar had sent a representation to MP K. Haribabu and the latter forwarded the same to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu seeking consideration of a stoppage for Antyodaya Express at Visakhapatnam, before its launch by the Railways.
Eswar says the stoppages are given by the Railways on the recommendations of the zonal authorities and East Coast Railway (ECoR) had conveniently ignored Visakhapatnam. Mr. Haribabu had also written to the Railway Minister in the past that a major station could not be skipped by a passing train just to reduce the running time.
“A couple of weeks ago, I had to travel from Renigunta to Visakhapatnam by the Howrah-Mysuru superfast weekly express as I could not get accommodation in Tirumala or the special train, though I had tried for berths 15 days in advance,” says a passenger from Vizag, who travelled by that train.
“Though I got a ‘waitlisted’ ticket, I was told that I would get accommodation and finally on the day of journey my berth was confirmed. But the problem is this train arrives around 10 a.m. at Renigunta and reaches Vizag around midnight”.
“The whole day and night is wasted in this train as it is being unduly delayed after Rajahmundry. It was not being given priority. When special trains and Suvidha trains were taking around 12 hours, this train can also be speeded up so that it reaches Vizag by 10 p.m. so that people can have a good night’s sleep at home and begin their day early,” the passenger says.

SECR is probably interested to develop and facilitate BSP (Zonal HQ) and R/Naya Raipur (under pressure from state govt) only, rest does not matter much.
New trains like BSP-patna, BSP-Firozpur Antyoday which does not better serve the SECR as well as CG area,
Neglect of Durg coaching complex,
No stoppage of LTT-PURI, LTT-BBS, LTT-Kamkhya trains at Durg,
importance to augment BSP-KTE route than the NGP-Durg trunk route,
still no direct Indore connectivity from G, Durg, R etc
are some examples.
CR is more interested to introduce eastward trains from Mum/Pune etc to NGP only and SECR interested to introduce more northward/ westward/southward trains from BSP only which will probably be extended to Naya Raipur in future.
With such schemes of things Stations between NGP and R, like G, RJN, Durg, Bhilai may get lesser new trains than BSP/R in future. G shall be more than compensated due to guage converted JBP-G-Chandrapur route, but others shall not be so fortunate.
In other words, bounties of SECR shall be more concentrated on BSP/R than before.
In general zones care most for zonal HQ, state capital & divisional HQs. Other cities are normally neglected.

Re# 2180690-7            Tags   Past Edits
My thought's slightly differ from you .what ever you said about secr that might be right but CR treating each station equal. The recent example is Pune Ajni ac express ,Terminates at Ajni instead of nagpur ,Reason may be the increase of load on nagpur but atleast they are giving some attention to there other stations except the Headquater .
Secr Negotiations can be easily judged as the stations like Durg Raipur Bilaspur Got wifi Facilities.But no wifi service at Gondia Similarly the service of lift started at Rajnandgaon station Gondia and durg is still pending .And about BPQ G BTC JBP route so I don't think Gondia get any benifit because there are only few trains which uses Gondia
Ballarshah route via Chandrapur

G deserve wifi more than RJN but RJN is constituency of CG CM!
In CR, Mumbai & NGP are not in competition because 2 cities are about 850 kms apart. NGP had been very important junction since past and cannot be badly neglected. More ever NGP also has status of second capital of Maharashtra since the formation of the state.
when a direct connectivity to Tirupati was demanded mainly by large number of Andhra people residing in Bhilai(Durg), BSP-R-VSKP-TPTY train with loco reversal at R and not touching Bhilai(Durg) was proposed & introduced by Rly officials of BSP, where as NGP/G/DurgBhilai-R-VSKP-TPTY (without loco reversal) would have been was much better alternative. People demanding train do not get it and board the train at R, but zonal HQ got it. Even a big city & junction like NGP too get neglected here.
In CR Pune is a sufferer as not enough care has been taken to introduce enough trains starting from Pune and as a result most of the trains starting from Pune are heavily crowded. Almost all long distance trains to Chennai, Bengaluru etc start from Mumbai and not adequate trains start from Pune. New trains need to originate from Pune as well. Moreover Pune local trains have not been given attention as all the attention is focussed on Mumbai in this matter.
