Lot of people from Odisha Visit Mahalakshmi Temple (Vaishnodevi Mata) in Katra, J&K.
But we do not have trains from this state.
Similarly many people visit Amritsar as it is home to the Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) and Jallianwala Bagh (one tri weekly train)..
Similarly many people visit Chandigarh/Kalka as it is closer to Shimla ..
So if there is one train to SVDK Via UHP, JAT, PTKC, JRC (with slip coaches to ASR & JUC) .. LDH, CDG, UMB, SRE, MTC, NDLS, CNB, MGS/ALD/BSB, ADRA, KGP, BBS from BAM
I wud like to see PURI SVDK via KGP MGS BSB LKO UMB JAT in near future..
Agree there should be train from Odisha to SVDK.
I think 18507 should be made daily by running 3 days a week Via BAM & BBS and 4 days Via RGDA &e TIG ..
If that is not possible may be slip coaches from RGDA to SBP Via TIG will be helpful.
It will be very nice if it starts from VSKP the last point of ECoR as it will benefit from the whole of ECoR,
also many people from North Coastal Andhra Pradesh and South Odisha will be visiting Vaishno Devi Temple.
No slip coaches are required to ASR as 18507 will be sufficient ..
Finally getting a path for normal train is very difficult .. so a Premium/Suvidha would be really great ..
I think slip coaches to ASR will be a bad idea because Amritsar is handling huge traffic and they short terminating the Passenger and DEMU trains in city outskirts only.
Due to operational feasibility increasin the frequency of 18507/18508 will be good i hope in my view.
if its direct train to katra from odisha will do good i hope
according to me there should be one daily train to ASR from PURI via BBS,HIJ,TATA,MURI,BRKA,BSB,ALD,CNB, one weekly to DDN via BBS,SBP, and following hirakud route to DDN via NDLS and one bi weekly to SVDK via JAT
First RSA between 12803 and 12807 should be removed.
It will be better if 12807 is extended to SVDK with slip coaches to DDN.
As there is no train to any place beyond NDLS from South West Odisha/North AP
Yes if RSA is removed, both can be made daily ..
12804 should be made daily and should be extended to SVDK/JAT ..
By doing so Both AP and Telangana will be benefited ..
There should be an ICE between SKZR and VSKP ..
It brings two regions closer viz.. Northern Telangana with North Coastal AP ..
Should be speed up, so as to reach NDLS by 16:00 hrs. Passengers can make onward journey to SVDK by 22461.

TAD shows like that only...you have to wait till the PF allotment at BZA..
Railfanning at Secunderabad Junction in the 18646 Hyderabad Nampally- Howrah East Coast Express
It will look nice if separate captions are given for the pics instead of lumping everything under "Railfanning at Secunderabad Junction in the 18646 Hyderabad Nampally- Howrah East Coast Express ". At least three locos are there. Which one hauls what? It could be more informative for others. Anyway, good pics.
Sorry, the Alcos were from KAZIPET (SCR) and the WAP4 was from LALLAGUDA (SCR).
The Alcos were at SC outer, while the WAP4 was on platform number 8
