Jan 30 2016 (5:23PM)   ECoR oblivious to demand for direct trains to Bengaluru - ANDHRA PRADESH

A total of 33,384 passengers fly between Visakhapatnam and Bengaluru on an average every month. This puts Visakhapatnam among the top 10 cities in the country in the number of passengers flying from various cities to Bengaluru and back, according to a recent survey.
No wonder, a total of six flights are operating a day between Visakhapatnam and Bengaluru with IndiGo and Air Asia operating two flights each and SpiceJet and Air Costa one each. IndiGo is said to be planning a third flight between these two cities.
Immense popularity

immense popularity of flights on this route is also an indication of the overwhelming demand for originating direct trains from Visakhapatnam to Bengaluru. But, the Bhubaneswar-headquartered East Coast Railway (ECoR) seems to be oblivious to the demand. The only originating weekly special train (02877) to Bengaluru has completed its last run but no announcement has been made on its extension so far.
On a representation submitted on behalf of an estimated 40,000 Telugus, living in Bengaluru, the South Western Railway (SWR) had operated a special train from Bengaluru to Visakhapatnam during Sankranti last year, which was an overwhelming success.
SWR wanted to continue the special train but ECoR said it would operate the special.
ECoR introduced 02877/78 Visakhapatnam-Krishnarajapuram-Visakhapatnam as a Tatkal special, which continued to draw tremendous patronage. During the last extension of the special train, ECoR had converted the train into a Suvidha Special train with dynamic fare, without increasing the speed. Despite these drawbacks and high fare, 02877 continued to have good patronage.
The 3{+r}{+d}AC fare during the peak season from Visakhapatnam to Bengaluru was around Rs.5,000 on this train making it more than twice the flight fare.
Information obtained by RTI activists reveals the bias of ECoR against Waltair Division, be it in the running of originating special trains, re-routing of long distance trains through Visakhapatnam Junction and provision of halts at the satellite stations.
New railway zone
An early announcement of a new railway zone with headquarters in Visakhapatnam is the only solution to end the woes of the people of the region, says East Coast Railway Shramik Union president Ch. Gandhi.
The only originating weekly special train (02877) to Bengaluru has completed its last run

Blaming BBS, Odisha & ECoR for this fate is totally irresponsible and foolishness.
Even BBS is also not properly connected with Bangalore. Only 1 daily Prashanti and 1 weekly is present , both of which gets filled up at BBS & BAM itself. Rest all trains have very less quota for BBS.
Same is with VSKP also. The only dedicated train is Prashanti as it has GNWL quota.
But
...
more...
instead of crying and abusing ECoR, these people should start using connecting trains.
VSKP-SBC direct is not available, then try VSKP-BZA and then BZA-SBC or first VSKP-MAS & then MAS-SBC.
We also do this.
or else do BP bookings.
I have myself travelled many times as: SBC-MAS and then MAS-BZA and then BZA-Odisha.
Instead of crying like chickens and burning trains, these area people should start using their minds and stop blaming the Govt for everything.

Today (4:00PM)   Railways to export 40 LHB coaches to Bangladesh

Entry# 1735117   News Entry# 256751            Tags   Past Edits
This is a new feature showing past edits to this News Post.
New Delhi, Feb 10: Railways will export 120 modern LHB coaches to Bangladesh at an estimated cost of Rs 367 crore, with the first consignment of 40 set to be dispatched in March. This is the biggest-ever consignment of Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches to be exported by the Railways, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
The export order of 120 LHB coaches include 17 AC first class, 17 AC chair car, 34 non-AC chair car with pantry, 33 Non-AC chair car with prayer room and 19 power car coaches. The manufacturing of stainless steel LHB broad gauge coaches for Bangladesh Railways is in progress at the Rail Coach Factory in Kapurthala. "We will be sending the first consignment of 40 coaches

by the end of next month and the remaining coaches will be delivered by next March," said the official. RCF Kapurthala is gaining a foothold in the export market. Earlier also, RCF has exported coaches to South East Asian and African countries which have Metre Gauge rail networks and Indian Railway's past experience in Meter Guage rolling stock has proves handy in serving these markets. According to the official, the coaches are customised as per the requirements of Bangladesh Railway and have aesthetically designed interiors and equipped with latest technology. The colour scheme has been suggested by Bangladesh Railways. Export contracts are executed through RITES Ltd, a railways PSU. The contract agreement between RITES Ltd and Bangladesh Railways was executed on January 21, 2015, and subsequently between RITES Ltd and RCF on September 30, 2015 for supply of these coaches. A high-level delegation from Bangladesh Railways, comprising Md Feroz Salah-ud–Din, Secretary-in-Charge, Ministry of Railways, Bangladesh and other top RCF officials had visited Kapurthala factory last month for inspection of the coaches prior to the dispatch.

LHB Production is very Low in a year
Moreover Raibarilley Unit has dismal performance in LHB Production
Now if the produce is exported then what we do ?

It's nothing but a Publicity Stunt
IR itself needs LHB Coaches badly. Many trains are in Pipeline for getting LHB Coach. This is not a prudent decision now when domestic demand is high. It can be done after meeting the domestic demand.
