Worst Experience at Nanded Railway Station!!
Today, I got a worst experience at Nanded Railway Station. One of my relative is going to Pune, so I went to Station to drop him. He used to catch 17613/14 NED-PNVL Express. Now a days, this train is used to start late, due to platform congestion at Nanded. This train came at 6:30 PM on Platform No 3 and to my surprise hardly 2-3 coaches came on platform and rest rake was out of platform. Old people finds very difficult to board the train due to Railway Negligence. When I asked Railway Guard about this matter, he simply laughs, and said "Wo Bade Kutte Paisa Leke Dhanda Karte Hai, Mere Haath Main Kya Hai!!".
After, plenty of efforts, this train gets good slot, now, SCR is purposefully not maintaining this train. Even after extension to Panvel, this train still have 3 sleeper coach. Uploading you some pics of this train for your reference..

It seems that the guard is right.They are knowingly doing this.Since when the train got regular,it is getting good response but still only three sleeper coaches.Ideally train should cover NED Pune 554 KM distance in 11 hrs,but it takes nearly 16 hrs.

Bidar-Nanded rail line project to be revived
Railway Board has ordered a resurvey, says Bhagwant Khuba
The Railway Ministry has agreed to revive the Bidar-Nanded rail line that was earlier rejected by the Railway Board.
Bhagwant Khuba, MP, told presspersons here on Sunday that the board had ordered a resurvey of the line. The first survey was conducted around 10 years ago. “It was
found to have negative viability. However, after my request to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, the board has agreed to take a re-look at the project. There is a possibility of realignment of the track at some points,” the MP said.
“The survey will start soon and a viability report will be submitted to the Ministry a few months later. I am hopeful that the project will be found viable,” Mr. Khuba said.
He said that Railway officials had told him that the Bidar-Kalaburagi line would be completed by March 2017. The pit-line for maintenance of coaches near Khanapur too would be completed by then.
The first trial runs on the line would be held by April, he said. “Mr. Prabhu has agreed to our request to regularise the Bidar-Pandharpur train and make it a daily service,” the MP said.
Mr. Khuba alleged that the State government had not taken steps to negotiate with GMR group to convince them about the operation of civil aviation flights from the Bidar Air Force base. Due to an agreement between the Union government and GMR group, no other airport can operate civil flights within a 150-km radius of the Hyderabad International Airport.
“Only if the State government takes this initiative, the Union government can interfere in the matter,” he said.
The Union government has approved the upgrading of State highways as national highways, the MP said. Telangana border-Sangam – Bhalki- Muchalamb-Basava Kalyan to Sastapur at Rs. 105 crore, Bidar–Mannaekhalli – Chincholi-Mariya-Tandur-Mehboob Nagar at Rs. 124 crore; Bidar –Ambesangvi–Kamal Nagar at the cost of Rs. 52 crore; Bidar–Humnabad at Rs. 52 crore, Mudbi-Harkud-VK Salgar-Mahagaon-Kodli-Madbool-Tengli cross-Dandoti— Chittapur-Bhimanahalli-Handarki cross-Gurmitkal-Putpak at Rs. 7 crore, Narayankhed-Nizampet Road at Rs. 1.37 crore; Zaheerabad-Bidar-Deglur at Rs. 2 crore; and Halbarga-Bhalki-Neelanga-Latur at Rs. 1.68 crore.

You're thinking from only Kolhapur connectivity perspective. New line should also include Mukhed(big town after Nanded in that region) also in it, Another survey of Udgir - Bodhan also in parallel.

Nanded division tops Maharashtra in cleanliness.
After bagging the top
rank in the state for punctuality of trains, Nanded division of the South Central Railway (SCR) has now secured coveted ranking on the cleanliness front also.
The latest report by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) shows that Nanded station has topped in SCR division and whole of Maharashtra standing. It has also bagged 9th position in India in cleanliness.
"Among the top 15 clean divisions based on level-1 and level-2 stations category, Nanded division stands at first in Maharashtra and 11th in India," Nanded divisional railway manager (DRM) A K Sinha said.
Titled as Survey of major railway stations for cleanliness ranking, the IRCTC report claimed to have covered 407 major stations across the country, including 75 A-1 category stations and 332 A category stations.
"During the survey, feedback was gathered from different rail users, porters, vendors and Service Improvement Group Members. It is great achievement for our entire staff and team members to earn yet another milestone," Sinha said.
Earlier this month, Nanded division that covers Aurangabad, Jalna, Parbhani and Nanded under it ambit topped in Maharashtra and secured fourth rank in India in running the trains on right time among 70 divisions in the country.
Meanwhile, range of activities have been taking place at Nanded division as a part of Swachh Rail-Swachh Bharat. The nine-day event, which began on September 17, intends to reform the entire railway system to meet highest standards of cleanliness.
The cleanliness drive will be continued all over 80 stations of Nanded division. Different officers and supervisors have been deputed for successful completion of the activities, including plantation of saplings, railway authorities said.
Authorities said plans are being worked out for carrying out maintenance of cleanliness of railway stations and trains by involving staff, voluntary organizations, scouts and guides and charitable institutions among others. Source: Times Of India

Aurangabad-Chalisgaon-Dhule-Nardana route should be approved by railway & NHAI considering following important points-
1) Aurangabad-Chalisgaon-Dhule-Nardana will be shortest route from Aurangabad to DMIC line. Only Aurangabad-Chalisgaon is considered but the concern authorities should also consider Dhule- Nardana(approximately 35Kms) with this. It will connect Western Railway - Central Railway - South Central Railway .
2)It will connect - Hyderabad-Aurangabad -Surat- Baroda-Ahmedabad-Rajkot-Jaipur-Delhi industrially important cities & tourist place like Ellora, Devgiri Fort.
Majority of backward area will come on this line & get benifited with Delhi Mumbai industrial corridor.

The Anandwan SF express started.
But i think they will start another train via marathwada region as at present the same is running as a special train. And even the run days is also increased. So seems like they will start 2 trains-1 SF via BD and another normal express.
