This train DIGHA-VSKP-DIGHA weekly exp is very useful to the passengers of srikakulam and its neighboring areas travelling to kharagpur, and beyond.Unfortunately this train 22873/22874 DIGHA -VSKP-DIGHA exp is not provided a halt at SRIKAKULAM ROAD station.It stops at PALASA in srikakulam district.so, passengers of srikakulam area have been facing a lot of trouble . The train runs on the same path of 22853/22854 SHM-VSKP-SHM weekly exp. The train should be run up to SHALIMAR instead of DIGHA . Halts are to be provided at SRIKAKULAM ROAD and BALUGAON stations.

The Pre CRS inspection took place in PLR - EDMN Stretch. Expecting the CRS inspection before Feb 12th. After that two passenger trains will be extended to Edamon from February last onwards.
However the speed limit from PLR to ARYNKV will be 30 km/hr. as the section is too risky. The distance will be reduced to Chennai through this route. The remaining inspection of various departments will take place in the coming days

REAL GARIBS are living in SRIKAKULAM district . But S.C.Railway is not in favor of extending the GARIB RATH EXPRESS up to PALASA. It is high time the train is extended up to PALASA to provide a chance to the people of sklm district to experience the travel by AC coaches.

PSA is not in SCR. They will have to get the approval from ECoR. And ECoR will most definitely not agree to terminating the train at PSA. And SCR will not prefer to run the train any farther than PSA as it's frequency will have to be reduced then. So, it will remain at VSKP for the near future.

To be precise PSA is not even in WAT dvsn.. Why will KUR dvsn even think of terminating it in PSA . same case happened with Visakha. ANd again same people who asked for extension to cater to PSA for serving North Andhra wil blame for extending it to Odisha territory. SO pls ask ECoR to cater to ur demand instead of blaming SCR alone,

New Station: Budhagumpa.
visited the first station on the new railway line between Ginigera (GIN) and Raichur Junction (RC) - Budhagumpa, yesterday. Below are some pics and info of the station as well as the progress of the railway line. Hope it is informative.....

From what I could gather, some 30-35 Kms of railway line has been laid. The work on other stations are on too. Once the track work at Gangavathi station too is completed, the line will be inaugurated it seems. Locals are hopeful that their demand for atleast a passenger to UBL and BAY are accepted.
Stations after Ginigera are:

22603/22604 kgp- vm -kgp express timings at palasa and srikakulam road are very convenient for the tirupaty bound passengers . Unfortunately halts are not provided at these 2 stations . If halts are provided at these 2 stations at least for a period of 6 months on experimental basis , it will prove that the halts are justified.
