Railway Development Around Kolhapur-Sangli-Miraj.
This area is a prosperous part of Maharashtra not because of industrial development but mainly because of agricultural development. This is popularly called as sugar belt of Maharshtra.
To any area to develop transport facilities are very important, railways and roadways are arteries of a economically healthy area. Considering Kolhapur-Sangli Roadways are better developed( four laned NH 4 ). Coming to railways Pune - Miraj - Kolhapur is most important line this was converted to BG around 1970 since then its development is static the signaling system was also age old till recently. Many times demand was raised to double this line but it was shelved each time.
Next important line is Miraj - Hubli - Bangalore it was converted to BG in 1995. Since then some long route trains are started.
Some important trains plying through this area and notable points
1 Mahalaxmi express this train connect Kolhapur to CSTM
It is one of the fastest train on Miraj Pune route but still the average speed is 50 km/hr!! Recently it is sharing its rake with Kolhapur-Solapur express so the most prestigious train on this route has become most dirty train.
2 Sahyadri express
It is a express which runs with speed less than of passenger train!!
3 Koyana Express
A day counterpart of Sahyadri express!!
4 Maharashtra express
Slow but good train connecting many places.
5 Rani Channama express
Good train (when you compare udyan express on Mumbai route with this train you have no option to call this a good train)
6 Dheekshabhoomi express
It is biggest joke indian railways has cracked with people of Kolhapur (actually when announced this train was for benefit of Kolhapur and Pune but Our Ex CM made it a naded train- for proof just check the route and the compare the speed Kolhapur to Nanded with Nanded to Dhanbad)

They have also demanded additional two platforms at Miraj junction and re-modelling of Sangli station which was initiated by Suresh Kalmadi when he was rail minister.

Trains running on Kolhapur Miraj Hyderabad and Kolhapur Miraj Nagpur as holiday specials have been extended upto July due to the huge demand on these sectors. Similarly, if railways start Madgaon Howrah train via Miraj Latur Nagpur, it will generate a huge response.

what do you want to prove?
this is a relatively new train and timings are also not suitable till now. if you inquire to the local people the unreserved coaches are full.
it will be used more and more by the people of this region and schedule will be definitely revised. in future ice rake will be used for this and then you will see this train will also be wait listed.
keep patience!!

what is outcome of running this train between Latur-Solapur
peoples from Latur, Osmanabad will not prefer this train to reach Solapur
as MSRTC buses take less time and near about same fare
more over it is not providing better connectivity at Kurduwadi to reach Pune-Mumbai
for return journy
then what is outcome of this train ?

its good to see that this is started.
But this express train takes more time than passenger train for the journey from MIRAJ - PARLI VAIJNATH.
I think the train schedule is not correct

Why the Hyderabad - Kolhapur express doen't use the route Hyderabad -> Solapur -> Pandharpur -> Miraj -> Kolhapur ?
17003, HYB KOP EXPRESS, runs 998 KLMs and takes 23 hours.
Where as, Hyderabad to Solapur is 335 KLMS which takes around 5-6 Hours
Solapur to Kolhapur is 315 KLMS which takes around 4 hours , so total journey can be covered in 10
The BG work is complete & many trains are running on the new route.
Please do the needful.

There are no new projects to Kolhapur Miraj.
It is high time people from this region t o come together and raise their demands.
There should be a new division at Miraj because Pune and Solapur divisions are not bothered about this region

i was hoping that this would be a faster train than Maharashtra as it has almost 200 km less to travel.But i guess about 80% of its travel is on single track And i guess the train as a bunch of change in directions. Just to list them
1) Miraj 2) latur road 3) Parli vaijanath 4)Akola.
Maharashta on the other hand has about 50% of its journey on double track 3 direction changes (Pune, Daund and MMR). But has a lot more stops.

MRJ-PVR section is just opened for pass traffic so there would be speed restrictions. This particular train is very important which will connect undeveloped region of western maharashtra and Marathwada. This will connect places of religious importance like Kolhapur, Pandharpur, Parli Vaijnath and Akola (Shegaon)! Hingoli/Washim people hv been demanding more trains on converted Akola Purna section so there demand is also partially fulfilled.
