Seven hills already passes through Kadiri. In fact, if RSA can be adjusted, then Padmavati via BZA can be made daily while still keeping Padmavathi via GTL running. After all, PAK-DMM route really does not have that many trains. Better not remove the existing trains if no new trains can be introduced.

Re# 1720039-1            Tags   Past Edits
12797 runs packed through out the year and is also a good originating train for CTO to SC. What's the point of extending it to SBC? End-to-end passengers will never prefer it and given it's SL/3AC CC, it won't be very attractive as a daytime ICE with such a short run-time ( hardly 4-5 hours from CTO to SBC). Such trains with an extremely good patronage are best left untouched as extending/diverting them won't add any value.

Tirupathi Station is having many platform constraints. So I am giving some extensions to the lie over Rakes and also some extra connectivity to the trains and increase the frequency of some Tri-Weekly and Weekly trains to Daily.
1. ONE TPTY-SBC IC UTILIZING THE LIE OVER RAKE OF 12797/98:
Using the Idle Rake of Venkatadri Exp at CTR an IC Exp to YPR can be made and it can have RSA with
...
more...
KCG – SBC Exp if new proposed SBC MAS Exp does not run.
KCG – 12798 – TPTY – 22617 – SBC – 12786 – KCG {PM} – 12785 – YPR – 22618 – TPTY – 12798 – KCG {PM at KCG}
20.00 7.30/ 8.30 15.00/18.20 5.40/19.05 6.20/9.00 15.00/18.00 6.00

OR
Using the Idle Rake of Venkatadri Exp at CTR an IC Exp to YPR can be made and it can have RSA with Prasanthi Exp
KCG – 12798 – TPTY – 22617 – YPR – 17604 – KCG {PM} – 17603 – YPR – 22618 – TPTY – 12798 – KCG {PM}
20.00 7.30/ 8.30 15.00/16.00 6.00/21.00 10.30/11.30 17.30/18.30 6.20
Since KCG YPR is lying idle at YPR So that there will an IC between TPTY – YPR in the afternoon and
remove the SBC TPTY IC.
OR
Extend 12797/98 to SBC New Train from TPTY to SBC instead of 22617/18 like Previous 17209/10

KCG – 12798 – TPTY – 22617 – SBC – 22618 – TPTY – 12797 – KCG
20.00 7.30/8.15 14.15/14.45 – 20.45/21.30 9.00
So that night train from TPTY to SC since it has Padmavathi at 17.00 and Narayanadri at 18.20
{TPTY – YPR/SBC timing is calculated as per 22617/18 timings}.
2. MAKE TPTY-RMM DAILY:
Make TPTY-RMM daily by giving RSA with TPTY-MAS & MAS-HYB [4 Rakes]
HYB – 12759 – MAS – 16054 – TPTY – 16780 – RMM – 16779 – TPTY – 16054 – MAS – 12760 – HYB
18.30 8.10/12.10 15.30/16.30 10.30/16.00 10.00/11.00 15.10/18.10 8.00

[2 Rakes of 12759/60+1 Rake of 16779/80+Extra Rake]
OR
Make TPTY – RMM daily as MS – RMM Exp via TPTY by giving it RSA with Sethu Exp Since Sethu having RSA with Ananthapuri remove
that RSA and give RSA to Boat Mail 16101/02 RSA with 16723/24 [4 Rakes] {PM at RMM & SM at MS}
RMM – 16779 – TPTY – 16054 – MS – 16713 – RMM(PM) – 16714 – MS – 16053 – TPTY – 16780 – RMM
16.00 {via CL} 9.00/9.30 13.00/17.00 4.45/20.00 8.20/12.00 15.30/16.00 {via CL} 9.00

[2 Rakes of 16713/14+1 Rake of 16779/80+1 Extra Rake]
Speed up 16779/80 run it Via Chord Line since Pamani runs in Main line and also SCR does not want this train to stay at TPTY till
evening Remove the RSA of CAPE RMM Exp Give 1 Rake to TPTY Exp, and 1 Rake to CAPE Exp. [22621/22 can run with 1 Rake]
[make 16101/02 RSA with 16723/24] 16779/80 can run with E-loco from MDU to TPTY.
TPTY - VM - RMM Chord line Timing is calculated as per 16713/14
3. MAKE CBE-TPTY DAILY AND EXTEND TO BZA:
CBE-TPTY To Be Extended To BZA Daily with additional IC Rake it will have a morning train to TPTY from BZA and
also afternoon train to BZA like Reverse Krishna Exp b/w BZA – TPTY
22615/16 => BZA – TPTY – CBE – TPTY – BZA {PM at BZA}
7.00 – 13.40/14.00 – 22.00/6.00 – 13.40/14.00 – 21.30
Here Pamani Rake can be transferred to SR and CBE IC to SCR.
SCR can take the Extra Rake of COA Pass to this Train to run it daily to BZA.

4. MERGE 12731/32 & 12763/64 AND EXTEND IT UPTO KRY:
Remove Padmavathi (12731/32) via GTL and make Via BZA Daily and run Seven Hills in that Place and extend it upto
Kadiri in ATP District so that it will serve the interior CTR District and also the places covered by 12731/32.
TPTY KRY time is calculated as per 12731/32 timings {3.30 hrs}.
KRY has 3 Platforms the only station with 3 Platforms in PAK DMM Section so it is extended to KRY.
12764/63 => SC – TPTY – KADIRI (KRY) – TPTY – SC
18.30 7.00/7.10 11.00/13.00 17.00/17.10 – 6.00 {PM at SC}
5. Make Seven Hills to run on Four Days since other two days occupied by AMI Bi-weekly and one day by 16734 from KCG.
6. INCREASE THE COACHES IN NS-TPTY EXP:
TPTY NS can have RSA WITH NS NSL EXP WITH PM at TPTY so that it will be a 16 Coach Train with
increased seating capacity from TPTY to BZA.

TPTY – 17403 – NS – 17213/31 – NSL – 17214/32 – NS - 17404 – TPTY
19.40 6.00/11.30 10.00/11.15 11.00/17.30 4.35

{PM at TPTY & SM at NS} [3Rakes of NSL Exp + 1 Rake of TPTY Exp]
7. INCREASE THE COACHES IN TPTY-MTM EXP AND RUN IT VIA HX GY GNT:
TPTY MTM Can Have RSA With MTM SC Exp With PM at MTM and run the train via HX, GY, DHNE GNT, BZA
So that interior CTR, Kadapa & Kurnool districts will have a connectivity to the new capital,
since TPTY-NS Exp will be running in the existing route.
This can be extended to CTR.
TPTY–BZA timing is calculated as TPTY–GY (300 Km 6 Hrs) & GY–BZA (9Hr 420 Km) sections so that it will trail
Kondaveedu in MTM–GY Section
MTM – 17402 – TPTY– CTR – TPTY – 17401 – MTM – 17249 – SC – 17250 - MTM
16.00 – 10.00/10.10 – 11.30/14.30 – 16.00/1610 – 8.20/20.30 – 5.30/22.30 6.50
{PM at MTM SM at SC} [2 Rakes of 17249+1 Rake of 17401+SC MTM Special Rake]
(CTR – MTM Via TPTY – HX – GY – DHNE- NDL – GNT – BZA)
8. MAKE 17417/18 SNSI EXP BI-WEEKLY
TPTY (Tu & Fr) => SNSI (We & Sa) => TPTY (Th & Su)
9. EXTEND TPTY-GTL MORNING PASS TO KRNT/NDL:
Extend TPTY – GTL Morning Pass to KRNT or NDL on both sides
since it is lying Idle from 21.00 Hrs to 7.00 Hrs next day and its PM is at TPTY only.
57475/76 = > TPTY – GTL – KRNT/NDL – GTL – TPTY
8.15 – 20.30/21.00 – 0.00/3.30 – 6.30/7.00 – 17.15
10. EXTEND TPTY-GTL NIGHT PASS TO BAY/HPT:
Extend TPTY – GTL Pass to BAY/HPT on both sides
since lot of Telugu people are working in HPT by converting it as Fast Pass
so that it will ease the burden on Haripriya Exp for
TPTY HPT Section and rake is lying idle from 9.00 to 18.00 in GTL.
57477/78 => TPTY – GTL – HPT – GTL - TPTY
22.30 – 8.30/8.40 – 12.00/15.00 – 18.20/18.30 – 6.20

OR
Instead of the above Two extensions, Both the GTL Pass can have their own RSA like
57477 => 57476 => PM at TPTY => 57475 => 57478 = > PM at TPTY
57475 => 57478 => PM at TPTY => 57477 => 57476 => PM at TPTY
TPTY – 57477 – GTL – 57476 – TPTY {PM at TPTY and run as 57475}
22.30 8.05/9.00 19.45
TPTY – 57475 – GTL – 57478 – TPTY {PM at TPTY and runs as 57477}
8.15 19.30/20.30 8.30
57476/77 takes 10.35 Hrs while 57475/57478 takes 12.20 Hrs
With this a Rake can be saved and also a Maintenance slot at TPTY.[3 Rakes]
11. Remove RSA of COA Pass with UBL Pass and extend it to ATP via PAK DMM
[4 Rakes – Give 1 Rake to 22615 Exp since 3 Rakes is enough]
57258/57 => COA – TPTY – ATP – TPTY - COA
7.00 – 2.50/3.00 – 12.30/16.00 - 00.55/1.05 – 20.45 [3 Rakes]
12. MAKE 12707/08 APSK 6 DAYS A WEEK:

Make 12707/08 APSK 6 days a Week (3 days [Mo,We&Fr]/[Su,We&Fr] Regular Route and
3 Days [Tu,Th&Sa]/[Mo,Th&Sa] via GDR, BZA NGP in the slot of 12803/12644/12646 from NZM to TPTY
Both have RSA and PM at TPTY.
13. MAKE PAMANI AS A DAILY:
Make Pamani as a Daily Train by using the IC Rake of 16057/58 Exp change the PM to MAS and shift the Rake to SR
MAS – 16058 – TPTY – 17407 – MQ – 17408 – TPTY – 16057 – MAS {PM at MAS & SM MQ}
6.20 9.30/10.30 22.30/5.30 16.30/17.00 20.45
This will have a daily connectivity to Main line from TPTY and vice-versa. Run it via MY KMU TJ MQ and also the Stops of 16779/80.
The RSA of 16057/58 with 16053/54 is removed and give it to RMM Exp.
14. MERGE 16339/40 & 16351/52:
Merge 16339/40 & 16351/52 as a single Train NCJ – CSTM since they are sharing nearly same slots B/w NCJ – DG and GTL – CSTM
and run it via DG – VM – KPD –TPTY-RU – GTL for 6 days a week so that TPTY will have 6 Days connectivity with CSTM. It can Run in
Electric Traction from NCJ to GTL
16339/40 & 16351/52 NCJ – TPTY – CSTM (Via MDU TPJ VM KPD CTO HX GTL)
15. PDY - TPTY DAILY NIGHT EXP:
MS – PDY Exp, and PDY - TPTY Exp, and Garudadri can be made with 2 Rakes {1 Rake of PDY MS and 1 Rake of PDY TPTY }

MS– 16115– PDY–17414– TPTY–16204 –MAS–16203– TPTY–17413– PDY–16116–MS
18.10 – 22.30/23.00 – 6.30/7.30 – 11.30/16.30 20.30/21.30 – 4.30/5.30 9.30
{PM at MS} (1 Rake of 17413/14+1 Rake of 16115/16)
This will have a daily night train to PDY from TPTY with 2 Rakes only since they have same coach composition except 1 ACC.
16. SHIFT UBL TPTY PASS TO SWR AND RSA WITH CHMR TPTY PASS:
Remove the RSA of CHMR TPTY Pass with Garudadri Exp and give it to TPTY UBL Pass and Extend of COA TPTY Pass to ATP
so that SWR train will go to SWR region only since the Garudadri train is ill treated both by SCR and SR and also CHMR Pass need not
go to MYS for PM the PM can be changed to UBL it saves a Rake which can be used for any other Train
{Since 56214 which arrives from TPTY departs as 56209 CMNR-MYS Pass and
56210 which arrives as MYS-CMNR departs as 56213 CMNR-TPTY pass}
UBL – 56473 – TPTY – 56214 – CHMR – 56213 –TPTY – 56474 – UBL {PM at UBL}
6.00 – 21.00/21.35 – 12.00/15.00 – 5.35/6.05 – 21.15
17. RAKE TRANSFERS:
Transfer a Rake of 22615/15 CBE–TPTY from SR to SCR.
Transfer a Rake of 17413/14 TPTY–PDY from SCR to SR.
Transfer a Rake of 17407/08 TPTY–MQ from SCR to SR
Transfer a Rake of 16779/80 RMM-TPTY from SR to SCR.
Transfer a Rake of 57257/58 COA–TPTY Pass to BZA for BZA–TPTY Exp
One Extra Rake for TPTY RMM Exp
One Extra Rake for TPTY MTM Exp
One Extra Rake for APSK Exp.
