An important milestone for Visakhapatnam. The halting time of all trains will come down once the circular route in the shape of Bulb comes into operation.

Once this comes into operation, there will be no more competition between North and South bound trains at VSKP for the two tracks from Gopalpatnam RRI to VSKP. Waiting for that day!!!

While going through the rake compositions of different trains, I have observed that the AC coaches are sometimes at the beginning and sometimes at the end of the train. Does anyone know- on what basis these AC coaches are arranged either at the front or back?

I traveled by this train on 22nd May from Chennai Egmore to Visakhapatnam. The rake composition shown for the train is wrong.
At MS, after SLR and 2 GEN, S1 to S10, PC, S11 and then AC compartments.
# admin: pls update
Not able to observe exact arrangement of AC compartments.
was a WAP-4 from RPM at MS; maybe an offlink

Last week, 19th April, I went to receive my parents coming to Vizag by 18508 Hirakud express. The train was supposed to reach Vizag at 23:50. I reached the station at around 23:20. At around 23:30, my parents called me and told me that the train had stopped just 2 km outside the station (i.e. Kancharapalem). The VSKP - LTT express left at around 23:30. At this point, there were two trains in the station - 18646 on the first and 17481 on the third platform. The rest of the platforms were empty. I was expecting the train to come early. On the other hand, the train came at nearly 00:20.
From 23:30 to 00:20, there were no other trains
coming into the station.
When 6 out of 8 platforms were vacant, why was this train stopped just a few km away outside the station for more than 30 min?
This seems to have been done deliberately on a regular basis.
From my enquiries, I found out that this is a common occurrence even for a few other trains terminating at VSKP.
I don't understand what the people of VSKP have done to be prejudiced against by the Railways.

This train is regularly late at VSKP, sometimes even by 3 or 4 hours. Even if it arrives on time, it is usually held up just outside the station for half an hour or 45 min for no apparent reason. The official arrival timings are significantly earlier than the actual platform arrival timings. For. e.g., on 19th May, 2016, it shows arrival as 00:05. Actually it came at 00:20 after waiting 2 km outside the station from 23:30.
