Right now it might be two pairs but why it is imp means if this bypass happens then there will be more connectivity to HK region. i mean more trains can be added. but as usual CR SUR doesn't want this to happen.

One of the worst Train to SC. I am surprised how late it can reach SC. Filthiest train ever. Caterers were asking tip for lot many things. This train should be called as Duronto Passenger. One of the worst train in SCR.

Re# 1496923-3            Tags   Past Edits
very bad...
it is supposed to be one of the best train,especially in terms of catering and food than SBC raj and SC raj
Yes pantry guys used to take money but at end of journey nly they ask for tips and upon request they used to provide extra food also.
May be catering vendor change might have made u this coment.....very bad
most of time it arrives early to SC outer and reaches SC on time,some thing wrong with controlling it seems

Posting again as i posted the previous msg in trn trip.
Travelling from nzm to sc: Live blogging :).
Train left 3-4 mins late. AC in 2A was not functioning properly but once the train started moving fast then it got better. I wonder if there is a generator car in this train and is that the reason for it. Or might be due to Delhi's heat and to add to it, the door was opening/closing quite regularly.
snacks immediately we left nzm. The frooti was warm :(, the water was warm, tea/coffee was pre-made and no flasks were given for it, mithai was nice, the sandwich lacked mayonnaise :).
Crossed mathura on time. Reached agra around 10-15 mins late. Crossed agra and after travelling for half an hour, the train is not stationary for around 30-40 mins. Wonder what might be the cause. Also, the train stopped at agra on a mid line.
Will try to post as we go :).
the train stopped right before a river, i guess the chambal. And later it raced on.
Now again, we are just at trotting speed...after crossing rairu.

RTI Reply for revenue of few stations in Gulbarga district which went to SCR in financial year 2013-14 (last fiscal)
Sedam--> 150 crores yearly
Malkhed--> About 270 crores yearly
Bidar--> 15 crores yearly
Tandur is not in Gulbarga dist its revenue is 115crores in 2013-14...
So with all these earlier RTI of Gulbarga, Wadi, Shahbad stations was 375 crores in 2013-14...
Gulbarga Division's total revenue may be between 1500-2000 crores in 2014-15 for sure (as it includes Bijapur, Bagalkot, Yadgir, Raichur districts also for which data yet to be collected)

After seeing all these RTI replies I fear GR will be earning more than UBL revenues. And UBL might be hiding its Face in disgrace as non performer and SWR HQ. lol:):)

UBL also should be having good freight revenue, UBL has Iron ore mines near Hospet, Tornagallu, Ballary. Also they have Vasco Port.
So I dont think UBL will have too less revenue, but they may not have good Passenger revenues.
