Feb 21 2017 (03:43)   22832/Sri Satya Sai Prashanthi Nilayam - Howrah SF Express | ATP/Anantapur (2 PFs)

Announcement at ATP: 22832 SSPN - HWH Express being announced as Puttparthi - Howrah Express, arriving on PF 1. Everyone locally call SSPN still as Puttaparthi only. SSPN is just the name of the station with out a City name attached.
For those who ask what is Puttaparti and where is it ? Its the City in which SSPN station is present. SSPN itself is not a city. Just like CST is in mumbai or KSR is in Bengaluru.
Its a Video with no visuals on it.

There has been some positive response in between Yelahanka and Doddaballapur. The land is ready. However, tracks are yet to be laid.
This stretch is likely to take around 2 years, I suppose.

Sir we can't save Prasanthi express which got extended to Odisha.
Why should another train suffer same thing
Want train ask for new train
Why snatching train from brotherhood
See what we have done
to Ap ac express
Am damm confident if ap ac express started from bza scr gave ap express best priority with well maintained rake and MPS tt
When you can't handle it don't ask for it.

Another train should not be scapegoat which is running well (bza-dmm express).

I cannot agree more on what you said. AC AP schedule was ruined by VSKP extension. Not to say anything bad about VSKP, its all on ECoR which doesnt care about VSKP. DMM-BZA is entirely within SCR, So there is a lot more schedule flexibility. There are plans for this train to be extended till HUP - Pending approval from SWR.

I was saying that first vskp should separate from ecor which is creating problems in vskp division
,with vskp trains tt and maintenance etc.
First we should cured this problem
If new trains r extension of train are allocated to vskp r if railways' give finance assistance to vskp how vskp will get justice it comes in ecor judiciary
think first vskp should concentrate on this problem it is root cause.

My First ever sighting of an Electric loco in my home town. #thrilling.
Here comes the Hindupur - Guntakal passenger with a power horse from the state capital region of Amaravati, a BZA WAG7 28325.
Wow... I can't believe, I am still contributing some firsts. as the Railfan base has grown so big in the recent years, I thought there would be nothing left to capture and bring something to everyone that is not already there on the site.

Another Rail Fanning Morning with local RFs of Anantapur Dist. in GTL Division of SCR.
Wonderful Experience as it was preceded by Uggani - bajji Breakfast a local breakfast special at a very very local tiffin center in the Garladinne Village.
Kumar & Vishnu came in from GTL by 1.5 hr late running Basava express to ATP then took a local ordinary APSRTC bus reach Garladinne which is 15 kms away from the City of Anantapur. By the time they reached, I was already present at Garladinne. Drove in my little
TVS Xl Super from my home in ATP. We had the breakfast and tea at the bus stand itself to energize ourselves to spend quality time at the GDE staion.
Location: GDE
6 am to 10 am
Spotting: LDH WAG9H with Freight, BZA WAG7 with HUP GTL Pass, GTL WAG3A with GTL-TPTY Day Pass, KZJ WDM3A Twins with JBP YPR Express having one Mahamana Express Liveried Coach, KZJ WDM3A Single with BZA - DMM LHB Express

Tirupati Bound Day passenger from Guntakal hauled by one of its diamonds, comes for a halt at Anantapur on which a Railfan traveled in from GTL.
Vishnu met with me briefly at ATP station exchanging his daily travel experiences. Meeting a local railfan at my hometown is a first for me and is thrilling.
First Loco Pic of this Diamond in traditional Guntakal DLS Livery.

Oh I am Sorry. Changed the blog catagory now.
Yes Its Puttaparthi. There is no city called Sri Satya Sai Prashanti Nilayam. Its just the name IR gave to the City of Puttaparthi. Even the announcments here come up in station as "Puttaparthi - Howrah Superfast express" Will post the audio file of the recording soon.

60 kms by road.. 6 hrs by rail..... LOL ..!
Usually it might take 6 hrs to reach a state Head Quarters for people in certain states.
But for people of KYND, it takes 6 hrs by rail to reach their District Head Quarters...
