Mar 19 (12:42PM)   ‘Direct train to Bengaluru at convenient hours needed’

The stock reply of the East Coast Railway (ECoR) when people from Visakhapatnam seek a direct train from Visakhapatnam to Bengaluru is that “there are adequate number of trains from Bhubaneswar and other parts of Odisha to Bengaluru, which pass through Visakhapatnam.
...

The ECoR authorities in Bhubaneswar conveniently forget the fact that these trains either arrive at Visakhapatnam at odd hours or one has to spend about 24 hours, wasting a greater part of the day, sitting through the journey.
The South Western Railway (SWR) had operated a Premium Super Fast Special from Bangalore to Visakhapatnam for two trips to clear the winter rush during December last year and it was a runaway success. Its success is attributed to the convenient timings as it left Bengaluru at 3.40 p.m. and arrived at 9.30 a.m. on the following day in Visakhapatnam.
It’s learnt that the SWR had again proposed to run two special trains from Bengaluru to Visakhapatnam to clear the Ugadi rush on the plea of thousands of Telugus living in Bengaluru. SWR, however, found that two ECoR trains —00852 Bengaluru Cantt – Bhubaneswar bi-weekly special and the 08302 Yesvantpur – Sambalpur weekly special – do not have adequate patronage. They are said to have dropped the idea as passengers from Visakhapatnam could use these trains.
“Train no. 08302 leaves Yesvantapur after midnight (12.30 a.m.) and reaches Visakhapatnam at 8.35 p.m. the same day and 00852 leaves Bengaluru at 1 a.m. (after midnight) and reaches Visakhapatnam at 6 p.m. the same day. Apart from the departure time being inconvenient, Visakhapatnam-bound passengers have to waste the whole day in the journey,” says M. Pradyumna of Bengaluru.
An express train via Chennai which leaves around 4 p.m. in Bengaluru and reaches Visakhapatnam around 10 a.m. the next morning would have tremendous demand as was proved in the past, he said.
“Train no. 00852 and no. 08302 run nearly empty between Visakhapatnam and Bhubaneswar and Sambalpur respectively. ECoR should run these trains via Raipur and Nagpur for better patronage and convenience of passengers from Odisha.
Instead the E Co R headquarters wants to compel passengers from Vizag to use these Odisha-bound specials despite the inconvenient timings and thereby get them regularised, says Sunny, an engineer from Vizag.

There are many other factors for speed restriction. Like the route and track also must be enabled with the mentioned speed, train must get top priority without any distraction as only continuous run with high speed will give huge difference.

Can anyone explain the concept, many newly announced trains are pending to be introduced and reason quoted is delay in rolling stock. But every season many special trains are run by different zones. rather why dont they use it for intro of announced trains. I can understand that specials are run using idle rakes lying but that is not the case with all specials. many specials are run using additional spare coaches given to zones. Can anyone explain this rake management for specials?

A new #twist to the proposed #zone.....A very sad one indeed...P.S: I know that this was already pasted in the news section, but am posting it under forum as it is an important issue and needs discussion...
"In order to fulfil the commitment of creating a railway zone for Andhra Pradesh, the Union railway ministry has in principle decided to split South Central Railway into two. The headquarters will continue in the twin cities.
According to sources, this decision was taken in order to satisfy Andhra Pradesh without causing any hardship to the 80,000-plus South Central Railway employees working here. The Centre came to this decision after an expert committee, constituted under the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, did not favour establishing a new rail zone for Andhra Pradesh. According to sources, railway minister Suresh Prabhu will announce the decision in the Railway Budget on February 26.
The expert committee did not favour either setting up a new rail zone with headquarters at Visakhapatnam (presently with East Coast Railway) or at Vijayawada (with SCR), and left the decision to the Railway Board.
Who gets what
SCR Zone 1 to cover Telangana, with Nanded, Secunderabad and Hyderabad divisions.
SCR Zone 2, covering Andhra Pradesh, will get Vijayawada, Guntur and Guntakal divisions.
No SCR staff will be shifted due to South Central Railway bifurcation."

There is no meaning in what ever announced. Why again HQ in Hyderabad which doesnt touch the actual zone. New railway zone is a decision part of reorganization bill and many people like CM have given their commitment. Forming expert committee and all is a mere bullshit ultimately what politicians announce is final. But still some grip is missing in proposed new zone hope if our representatives pitch some more pressure it may come true. I have faith that railway zone will come in VSKP
