Travel Question
Oct 29 2016 (19:22)   58501/Visakhapatnam - Kirandul Passenger | BGHU/Borra Guhalu (1 PFs)

Entry# 2041507            Tags   Past Edits
I have few queries regarding this train - I am traveling by car to Araku, but would like to experience the awesome tunnel section in this train and take some ~1 hr journey on this train. My queries are:
1. Where do maximum of the scenic route and tunnels lie on the path of this train - between SLPM/TXD and BGHU or between BGHU and Shimliguda. If I can get most of the tunnels between SLPM/TXD and BGHU, I would drive down to SLPM/TXD, board the train till BGHU and then come back and pick my car.
Does the train stop at TXD and will I get tickets there? How crowded will be the general/2S compartments on a Saturday? If yes which station should I prefer - SLPM or TXD?
Thanks !

U need to travel all the way from skota till araku in train to enjoy tunnels and valley. Most tunnels ate between skota and borra. But getting into train in skota is very difficult as it gets filled up fully at vskp itself and weekends its beyond reach. If u want to enjoy train journey then u have book in sleeper/general seating till araku/koraput so as to enjoy the beauty.

Thanks Deepak. Is it so crowded that we wont get standing space also? I mean if we can even squeeze in standing b/w tyada and borra it would be just 40 min but I should be getting tunnel numbers 10 - ~40 probably.
Actually we are a grp of 9-10, and since we have limited time, I was thinking if we even get some of the scenic spots in some subset of the train journey it would be great and better than experiencing nothing.

Happy Diwali All !

Tyda has some restrictions of halting now for security reasons and not sure whether they have suspended halt. You won't be able to enjoy much if u are not in window seat or sitting position. Doors have lot of demand then seats in general coaches.

Composite Coach 2A Section.
Berth 25,26,27
So there are atleast 7 berths more than the ICF 1A+2A Composite coach.
Anybody has the Diagramatic view of the berth distribution in LHB Composite coaches.

quit less chances bcoz sk tag.
if up broke in 4 parts then agra become a state capital. so it may halted there.
now it took unschedule halt at agc on main line.

Faced Strange issue today - Booked a ticket on Sunday (PNR 2720783818) and obtained initial status was WL-2. Yesterday night it showed RAC-2 and a little later RAC-1.
However to my utter shock after chart preparation it shows WL-5 !!!
Has anyone faced a similar issue? I have mailed to Care & Etickets.
I would be grateful, If anyone can provide tips on
what action to follow in such situations for lodging grievance/complaints.

Well such things do happen..though rarely....Its called degradation..usually happens if the class in which booked may not exist on that particular run..or due to some VIP travelling the same class....

This is nothing new. The status can upgrade / downgrade at any time. They mention this as disclaimer too. Tickets downgrade mainly because of removal of coaches as a last hour step (technical reasons etc.)

if waiting is moved/downgraded it is understandable - but confirmed/RAC tickets? Like In my case once I saw it was RAC1 before charting, I cancelled my garib rath ticket. Now I am left stranded :(

Also Mahabodhi has only one 3AC coach - therefore removal of coach doesnt make sense - Also graduating to RAC means berth is eramarked.

It is called as Coach, not Bogie, Bogie is the dynamic wheel set frame structure pivoted to the under frame and coach shell body where you are sleeping. So hence forth dont call the coach as Bogie.
