Gooty-Yelahanka Railway Line Electrification works likely to be completed by March 2015
बेंगलुरू Bangalore (SBC): Electrification of the Yelahanka–Dharmavaram–Gooty railway line (306 km), which could offer faster and comfortable journey to the north from Bangalore besides saving on the fuel bill for the Railways, is likely to be completed by March 2015
Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd
(RVNL), which is executing the project since 2011–12 has completed the overhead equipment (electric cables) work in two years
However, the electrified line is yet to be commissioned as power transmission companies of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka are yet to execute their parts of work
RE Works on SWRResponding to an RTI application, RVNL informed that the work on overhead equipment was complete except for a 2-km stretch on which power lines of Transmission Corporation of Andhra Pradesh Ltd
(APTRANSCO) have passed through
Despite making payments to APTRANSCO in December 2012, the company is yet to shift the lines, it said
At the same time, APTRANSCO and Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Ltd
, (KPTCL) have to install transmission lines from grid sub-station to four traction sub-stations catering to the electrified line, RVNL said
It has made payments to the two companies
RVNL expects that shifting of lines and installation of new lines to the traction sub-stations could be completed by December this year while the mandatory inspection by the Commissioner of Railway Safety could be done by March 31, 2015
Considerable savings
It is said that the commissioning of the line could save considerable journey time as at present diesel locos hauling Rajdhani and Sampark Kranthi express trains from Bangalore are replaced with electric locos at Secunderabad
An electric loco right from Bangalore would mean saving of at least 30 minutes and reduced environment pollution, he said
An electric loco could run up to 160 km an hour and its maintenance cost is lesser than that of a diesel loco
A senior official in the operations division of South Western Railway said they preferred electric locos to diesel ones for the former’s efficiency

As a railfan, each one of us has some obsession or some sort of preference. Where zahaib prefers weird long routes at times, pkv prefers connecting trains, shashank prefers fastest trains and Teja prefers confirm berth by any route, I have an obsession too...
I am obsessed with weeklies and bi weeklies. My love for them refuses to diminish. Another obsession which I would like to share is I hate repeating trains. I ll seldom prefer a train I have travelled once and will change any no.of trains to avoid that...
With reference to the above obsession, I am onboard hlz mas sangrami express. I would like to

inform that when I booked sangrami, plenty of seats were vacant in Duronto. And I am not destined to Chennai, hence I ll have to change a train at Chennai. To board sangrami I had to leave my home an hour earlier than I would have had I boarded Duronto. Also I would have reached Bangalore a minimum of 12 hrs earlier, but still I preferred a route involving two transfers and twelve hours extra. No wonder why we are rail fans.
So I booked a telescopic ticket from kharagpur to Bangalore via Chennai and planned to board an emu from howrah to kharagpur. When I Informed my plans to PKV sir, he was courteous enough to accompany me to kgp, even if it meant that he had to return all alone.
