Motamarri–Vishnupuram New Line.
Motamarri–Vishnupuram New Line - is the line that connects Vijayawada-Kazipet line to Guntur-Hyderabad line. One of the intermediate station is to come up in Jaggayyapet Town. I visited this town yesterday. Here are some pics and info for interested railfans.
1 - 4 : The station yard, where the PFs will come up.
Pic 5 - 9 : The line towards Mellacheruvu.
Pic 10: Just a pic of River Krishna which I crossed in the boat on my way to Jaggayyapet.
Line Info:
1. I was surprised that the line is electrified too. I thought that a basic new line would be there with Goods trains hauled by Diesel Locos using it.
2. I was told that the line is electrified till Mellacheruvu. And further till Vishnupuram the line is completed and its not electrified.
3. The black soot on the tracks is that of Coal. Many freights here are of coal and the line caters to the various heavy industries in and around this town and further.
Note: The above info is just for interested railfans and not for any IRI Atlas updation or anything as such.

I saw a couple of WAG7s hauling a department coach-like one used for workshop/restvan and such..... on Vinukonda to Narasaraopet section. It was moving fast from Narasaraopet side towards Vinukonda.
It was early morning and passed before I could take pic, also my bus was moving fast too. But my co-passenger said that some goods trains he has seen go with Electric locos.

I dont know. I have said whatever I could gather. So thats what I was told there, thats where station will come up. In Google Maps Mellacheruvu station can be seen, so naturally this bigger town "may" get one too. Anyway, like I said this is just info I came to know.

The PF 1 adjacent small line may be used for DEMU or MEMU in future after electrification. Or just to stable track machines.

It is the longest operated train (in terms of distance) by SCR, when all other SCR zone's trains are taken into consideration.

This train belongs to SCR.But it doesn't stop at some important stations of AP that come under SCR.Cudappah (HX)is the best example.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
