Updates on Bidar Gulbarga New line at Sultanpur Station(Outskirts of Gulbarga)
- All platform works completed with FUB..
- LED lights are shining
- Huge Goods shed is almost ready( the existing Gulbarga station Goods shed will be shifted to Sultanpur Station soon)
Once the Goods shed at Gulbarga is shifted to Sultanpur station(outskirts of gulbarga on Bidar line), there will be some space for stabling lines at GR station
- Sultanpur station looks to have 3 platforms (the third one may be used for Goods stabling)
- Overall works looks excellent as usual nothing to mention since its SCR line!

Gulbarga Railway Division is already approved by Railway board unlike the new Zone for AP. For gulbarga railway division only funds has to be released ... however it is planned that Gulbarga division will be formed in SWR, but people of that region want the railway division in SCR instead of SWR!!!!

The current LTT-Bidar Weekly train(11075/76) should run as LTT-Bidar Tri-weekly Express via Latur and 4-days a week via Gulbarga with proper timings.

In yesterday's meeting with Solapur MP Mr. Sharad Bansode at DRM office, it is decided that SUR Division will be sending proposal of Solapur - Pune - Solapur new Intercity Express due to increased demand in this route.
It is brought to notice that rake of 22139/40 is idle at Solapur for whole day. So CR is decided to use that rake for running day time Intercity between Solapur and Pune with Kurduwadi, Jeur & Daund hault.
Timings of this train likely to be reverse of 12169/70 in both directions.

Solapur division is playing all tricks to avoid the possible easy extension of 22139/40 upto Gulbarga or Wadi. This is pure display of cunningness towards area on which solapur division survives. They were happy if the rake of 22139/40 was idle all these days which is "national waste" instead this could have been easily extended till Gulbarga and revenue would have been still with Solapur division. But they do not want to extend any train to Gulbarga. Now 22133/4 should be terminated at Gulbarga itself and it anyhow has pitline

Gone are those days when people used to come to solapur for medical treatment, now Gulbarga has 4 Medical colleges( 2 Private, 2 Government) plus Jayadeva Heart super speciality branch, Puls Kidwai Cancer Branch, HCG cancer hospital, ESI Medical Hub which has medical, Dental, Para medical etc...) Rajive Gandhi University of Health medical university (RGUHS) Regional center ... Infact solapur was bustling city 1-2 decades ago compared to this decade. Yes they still do tricks with quota allotment to Gulbarga various RTI has revealed that SOlapur station (goods+passenger) is less than Gulbarga station revenue(Goods+passenger).

Look how dramatic it is, let's name it as the Golden Ellipse as these stations shall play a vital role between CR and SCR once the proposed lines and other pending projects gets completed. Bodhan-Bidar line (in dotted brown) which is pending to be commissioned would be boon connecting the either sides. Though it may take a lot of time but the future of these stations will make an economical impact in the development of this region.

Gulbarga Latur distance would be arround 140 to 150Kms... instead of connecting to Latur road railway station Gulbarga-Latur new line should connect at Latur . And to answer your question Gulbarga to Latur road distance would 140+22Kms=162 Kms

The new Latur-Gulbarga line can branch out from Sultanpur station(new station on Bidar-Gulbarga new line). This can save additionally 10kms for entire Latur-Gulbarga new line construction...
The Latur-Gulbarga should go via
Gulbarga-Sultanpur(already line exist)
Sultanpur-Karnataka Central University (Kadaganchi)
Umerga-Khillari- Ausa-Latur(If it goes via Nilanga it will be round about)

I agree, but just a diversion of about 10-20 Kms can bring a Taluka place like Nilanga under a BG line and that can help the people.
If you are aware Usmanabad was no where on the Barshi- Latur narrow guage line, but when the new BG line was put, the route was diverted to cover Usmanabad.
As per MP Ravi Gaikwad, the proposed route is from Ausa- Kasarsirsi- Nilanga- Omerga- Aland, which I believe is being surveyed.

Its surprising to hear Protest of Laturkar for the extension of train no. 22107 upto Bidar. Fact remain that only 2 bogies S7 & S8 are extended upto Bidar (These 2 bogies were UR type earlier -till latur & No AC-3/2 Ty, First class ticket is allowed to book for journey upto Bidar)
Even in these 2 Bogies, Laturkars can avail reserved tickets upto Latur. So what is point of protest?
Although quota of 80-85 no. of berth allotted, Udgirkars & Bidarkar have feeling of Justice done to their long pending demand
for direct train upto Mumbai at convenient timing from both end...
CR shall amend schedule of this train & extend the train for all 7 days a week from both end i.e. Bidar & CSTM.

yes 22139/40 primary maintenance is at Mumbai hence instead of simply idling at solapur from early morning till late evening this can be extended till Wadi or Gulbarga easily and both Gulbarga Wadi has ample space to park this train... but CR will it propose ? they may extend it to Gadag but will never do it for Wadi or Gulbarga....
