Thanks Pramodh for putting up my pic too :). It was the first time I was meeting you and Tejas. I had earlier met Shashank, Ashok, Vijay on the hyderabad visit - you were indisposed and you guys stayed in a hotel just about 2 minutes walk from my apartment overseeing the Hussainsagar lake. This pic was a surprise visit from you in SBC station. Earlier evening I had dinner with Shashank and Tejas and this was the icing on the cake from that last visit.
Though the honour to be the first admin with whom I met has always been with PKV sir. We didnt take pics at that time as he was shortly to attend his training session.

Need to understand the purpose of having the Opinion box beside a post. The options available there are :
Thanks
Great
Useful
Agree
So by mere selection of one of these, we are supposed to be giving our opinions. However why are we still blogging the same as a post - I dont think the initial blogger needs to know who likes his/her post or who is giving an opinion.
By just writing these comments on each and every blog daily, one can easily accumulate 1000 blogs in a week. Finally thats what some are looking

I totally AGREE but do not know what to do now, just click "Agree" or write it out. Though I may tend to think on the same lines as you, Sir, I believe in writing it out as it gives a personal touch to my opinions. I feel more satisfied in writing my opinions rather than just clicking the buttons. May I know your respected opinion on my theory.

Let them justify their presence by this way.

Absolutely fine. Then lets discard off the Opinion box totally if verbal is needed. With verbal in a week, one can add 1000 or more numbers just on such one liners.

Blog Entry Archived.
This is currently a software limitation, and people are allowed to post very short verbal greetings. When the software evolves, this issue will automatically get resolved.
In the interim, thanks for your patience.
Thanks.

I do not know why the earlier blog was archived. The entire discussion is there - so whether right or wrong it should have been continued there.
The slot from Warangal onwards is shared with the SC-NZM Rajdhani. Are we calling for a radical overhaul in timings. If so, then its better to interact with IR directly rather than we discuss :)

The reason for archiving the earlier blog has been explained there. FYKI, that was a typo, as the new timings suggested were given as 6AM, instead of 6PM. Regrets for the inconvenience caused to you.

It has not caused inconvenience to me. The discussion was on and the typo was clearly mentioned later in the blog. The archiving was totally not needed. Anyways Thanks for the update. I am still surprised that this forum still looks at numbers only. I would refrain my participation in this blog.

It doesnt matter sir. All we need is comments as Thanks, Great, Excellent and Good to keep the numbers ringing. Any discussions will be handled with high handedness as always.
We are here all equal with different levels of expertise and with a goal to help a common person who asks for Info or asks for help. But this is not the case now. We are into a different track. I have been away from the active blogging for the same reason and it still continues. Whether I am there or not, we dont lose anything at all.

----INFORMATION ON SECUNDERABAD RAILWAY STATION FOR REGULAR/FIRST TIME TRAVELERS-----
History: This station was the headquarters for the Nizam’s Guaranteed state Railway and had MG and BG P.way from its inception as HYB-WL was Broad gauge while SC-MMR and SC-DHNE was Meter gauge, SC served as a vital connection for people of Islam Faith to travel to Ajmer, religious tourism and many other socio-economic aspects involving the Hyderabad-Secunderabad culture propelled SC into one of the places with the highest activity in twin cities of HYB and SC retaining its glory till date. Anyway much of it later, this is an attempt only to provide info on the amenities and FAQ’s.
.
Information on the station: Secunderabad Junction leads out to four directions,
...
Read more...
towards Kazipet in the east, Nizamabad in the North West, Wadi in the West and Dhone in the South West of which SC-KZJ route in undoubtedly the busiest. SC has 10 platforms physically, however PF-6 and 7 have been divided into A and B that is 6A/6B and 7A/7B.
The station has two exits of which the main one is towards PF-1 while the second one called Bhoiguda exit is towards PF-10, both the exits have decent Car parking spaces, current booking, Unreserved booking and ATVM machines. PF-10 end exit/entrance also has one PRS counter; the main reservation complex at SC station however is beside Rathifile bus stand a short walk from PF-1 Exit.
.
There are three Foot Over Bridges(FOB) one at the Kazipet end, second one in the middle and one towards HYB end on all platforms, FOB’s on either ends of the platform connect PF-1 to 10 through all platforms however the middle FOB connects PF-1 to the Bhoiguda exit through all platforms except 10, kindly keep this in mind in case you intend to reach PF-10 from PF-1 else you may end up outside the station. There are battery operated passenger carts which transport elders and physically handicapped free of cost from/to any platform, there are quite a lot of trolleys and in case you don’t find one, you can ask help from GRP/RPF.
.
Food is generally available on all platforms, and tastes of the typical IRCTC food. I would advise travellers to go Hyderabad for the short trip if you are reading this before travelling to Hyderabad for the first time; Hyderabad is known for its cuisine and offers a lot to explore. There are many historic hotels around Secunderabad station, if you are transiting through SC with a short buffer I would suggest ALPHA hotel which stands tall from many decades, or paradise (which is a couple of kms away)if you just stepped out of a train during lunch time and prefer a classic Hyderabadi Lunch with meat or veggies as your choice would be. Alpha also offers express Parcel on Hyderabadi Biryani’s which a lot of people prefer to carry before starting their journey, this also includes paper cutlery (not sure if that word exists) for dining.
.
In case a passenger(you) intends to reach SC by an MMTS be mindful that MMTS from LPI to SC-FM stop on the KZJ end of PF-4 while MMTS from FM-SC/HYB/LPI stop at the HYB end of PF-7 and very very rarely on PF-10 or 6. This is usually the trend which almost never changes, keep this in mind and check your train’s regular PF for departure in the train column in this train and go for it. People intending to leave SC in an MMTS, same pattern for outbound trains they leave from where they stop.Local trains towards Malkajgiri-Bolarum-Medchal would usually be on 6-7 platforms but can rarely be allotted 8-10 also in peak times.
.
OUTSIDE THE STATION:
PF-1 has 4 exits and PF-10 has 2 to leave the station, may are not aware of the 4th exit on PF-1 as its predominantly an entry, however if you are new to the city and trying to figure out how to reach an address mentioned in a message, here you go:
.
Towards Shamirpet/Alwal/Risala Bazar buses start a bit further of alpha hotel outside PF-1 Exit, it would kinda be hell let loose outside SC at its peak traffic, its best if you ask someone but you can confidently exit through PF-1 if you need to go the above places and the few mentioned below.
.
Towards Bowenpally/Balanagar/Kukatpally-KPHB/Miyapur/Lingampalli/Patancheru buses are available right next to the point where Shamirpet buses start.
.
Towards Begumpet/Ameerpet/Jubilee Hills/Filmnagar/Hi-tec city/Kondapur/Khairtabad/Ranigunj/Koti/Abids/Nampally/Afzul Gunj/Charminar-right opposite to the station.
.
Towards Padmarao nagar, RTC X roads, Kushaiguda, Women’s college(Koti), Dilsukhnagar, Lab Qts, Midhani, Ibrahimpatnam, Old city- At Rathifile bus stop beside(right) Secunderabad station upon exiting from PF-1.
Towards Malkajgiri/ECIL/ASC Center and east secunderabad- Opposite to Rathifile Towards Keyes High School (popular Land mark)
.
In case you need to go towards Tarnaka, Uppal, Ghatkesar, Nagole,Dilsukhnagar, LB nagar or Ibrahimpatnam you need to exit through PF-10(bhoiguda Exit) and walk down to the main road where you will find the bus stand(if you didn’t manage to find it, ask for uppal bus stand as it is called there).
.
Bus routes are easy to find, ask anyone around or just follow the route mentioned to reach the bus stand and you can find boards in enlish and telugu.
.
Native Hyderbadi’s have no trouble speaking Urdu(or Hyderabadi to be precise), in case you know only English and Hindi you should not be having much of a trouble in most parts of the city. Knowing any other South Indian language (Except Kannada of course) won’t really help in Hyderabad as it is really far from all other southern states. This diversity perhaps is why we are called the Sub Continent.
People are really hospitable in Hyderabad; I hope this helps you a bit at least, if you are travelling to Hyderabad or to any other person who wishes to do so in the future. Happy travelling, thanks for reading!!

Congratulation Pramodh on crossing yet another number. Our acquaintance started just a few months back and it seems we know each other since long. It was nice on your part to come by SBC to meet me during my last trip - since we missed meeting in Hyderabad. From then.. other than blogs we have spoken on so many other things and this is what that holds good on your part. Its a personal touch. Keep writing more, Keep helping more - critics are always there. They do their job and we keep doing what we are good at.. Keep marching ahead :)

Trip to Kumbakonam
-------------------------
Part 1:
.
I was in chennai on 13th March 2013 for some personal work and however i came to know that i cant meet the person until 15th March 2013. On speaking to wife i was adivsed that i visit the Rahu temple at Thirunageswaram which is 6 kms from Kumbakonam Railway station. Wife , Son and me did visit this temple last year /blog/post/383735 . Without wasting anytime i tried for a tatkal in Mannai Express and what i got the was CKWL2 the number i fear the most. /blog/post/692908 . The ticket showed no signs of movement until charting was done around 6pm to give me

a shocking surprise of confirmed status. B1 21. So all set to Kumbakonam.. In the meanwhile IRI member and railfan Sivakumar Govindarajan said he is free and we could do a catch up.. Before packing i decided to book a SL ticket in Cholan Express for the return journey. /blog/post/692939 .
.
Siva and i met near Ashok Pillar at 7.30 pm and we headed towards Nungambakkam station for some Railfanning and then to take a EMU to egmore to catch my train. We reached around 8.15 pm and went to the PF after taking 2 tickets to Chennai egmore. We went to the VLR straight to have some snacks and gulped Vada Sambar followed by coffee. We spoke a lot about trains and spotted couple of trains passing by. Siva is a hardcore railfan who notes down every loco he sees and is also updated with every rail info thats happening in the MAS divn. He gave me good insight on loco roaster in the south TN side as well. Since it was 9.15 Pm now i decided to take the next EMU to Egmore.
.
