There are always some issues, but we are doing much better than many other divisions of IR. We have three stations (other than BZA) with long distance originating trains. With more than 300 passing trains, it will be difficult to have many originating trains from BZA. That's why most trains (other than intercities) keep starting from NS/MTM or COA, so that congestion at BZA can be reduced. Other than the SC bound trains like Gowthami, all the other trains originating in the BZA division don't get filled up at the originating station and serve both Godavari districts and BZA.
BZA should be made the hub for ICEs, but for long distance trains, better to use MTM/NS/COA as

originating stations with a healthy quota for BZA.

Re# 2285802-25            Tags   Past Edits
That's what I was mentioning sir. Those three can be used as originating trains with a healthy quota for BZA. For example, Circar runs with de-reserved coaches till BZA. Seshadri also used to run with dereserved coaches till BZA. NS-NSL mostly gets passengers from BZA.
Even if these three get originating trains, only the ones towards SC get completely filled at the originating station itself. All the other trains like Seshadri, Circar, LTT express, Kondaveedu get a lot of passengers from intermediate stations like RJY or BZA. The quota may be a bit less now, but
a
...

solution can definitely be found to ensure good quota for BZA.
You are not depending on NS, MTM, CCT for your trains. You are just depending on them to take the load off BZA. Think of it like how SBC trains get dumped at MYS to reduce the load on SBC. In a similar way, these three are more or less just originating points. If BZA becomes the originating point for all long distance trains, then again more trains will have to be started to serve the Godavari districts or the south coastal districts as these will not be covered by trains originating at BZA. This will severely congest BZA. Instead of running multiple duplicate trains, it will be better for everybody to use the available originating stations efficiently. Other than SC/TPTY, there is never enough passenger traffic to fill up an entire train for any other destination from these places. Quotas can be adjusted perfectly for BZA and keep everybody happy.

Source: Report on Indian Railways, 1987 - click here
Inaugurated on April 6th, 1987 as 929/930 Hyderabad-Cochin weekly express. Prior to that, there were slip coaches from Cochin to Hyderabad. The slip coaches were attached to 81/82 Jayanti Janata express (CSTM-CAPE) at Cochin and were detached at RU (later it was GTL) and were attached there to the Tirupati-Hyderabad express.

Slip coaches connecting to the train would also be difficult as it is the only daily train from SBC/MAS to Patna and already runs packed. It's already a 24 coacher and there's still lot of demand for more. True, it does waste some time in running via MAS, but that is unavoidable as it belonged to MAS/SR earlier and SR will never agree for it to skip MAS.
The prospects for having trains on TRT-RU route from KPD side look bad now, as TPTY is the first preference for passing trains due to the higher passenger traffic. Even the BZA-SBC ICE that was circulating in the discussions sometime ago, would run via TPTY only. For now,

only connecting passenger/MEMUs to RU seems to be a possible solution. May be, requesting for diversion of some of the weekly trains or requesting for halts for passing trains would yield a better result.

Avunu, looks like that entry is wrong. But you can search for it on Google Books. The Wiki entry needs to be updated. You can search for Krishna express in these : click here and click here Apparently it was the fastest train in SCR at the time.

One more small correction sir, it was first introduced as ICE between SC and BZA, later extended to GNT.
After that it was extended to TPTY skipping GNT.
Later it was HYB-TPTY, then extended to NZB and now upto ADB.

Thanks! I wasn't sure of that. All the sources I checked had it as SC-GNT, but one or two had it as Hyderabad-Vijayawada. I presumed the two cities were just mentioned casually to indicate connectivity and not as the exact terminals. Thanks for providing the additional info!
I do remember seeing it as HYB-TPTY. We used to cross it while traveling by Gautami in both directions.

One more interesting point. IT was also the first train to run with electric traction on Gudur-RU route after it was electrified. I think it used to have a loco change at RU as the RU-TPTY section wasn't electrified at the time.

It is indeed useful info
Even a full A/C 22 coach LHB train effectively runs on 1 EOG only. Each EOG contains two generators, and each of them usually connect to the feeder line running the length of the train. Even when you see an LHB train with both EOG's on, it's just that they have switched one generator each in each EOG. At any time, only one generator can power a feeder line and thus, a single generator car can power the entire train. That is why, we can occasionally see many A/C trains with only 1 EOG on. Usually instead of running both generators in a single EOG van, the on-board power car staff run one generator each in each EOG for better fuel efficiency and load distribution on the EOG.

As long as the EOG car is mechanically fit for running with the rake, there should not be any problems in getting the train back on track again.
