Continued from here

First day of run was amazing. food was 10x better then SBC Rajdhani food. and quantity was also good. Reached Vijayawada 30 mins before time. By now I was feeling too sleepy after a hectic doorplating session throughout the day and slept off at my upper berth.


************ DAY 2 *************

It was 07:30 am and I woke up on third call of the pantry boy for tea. Washed my face and glanced out of the door... it was too chilly weather and mild fog has engulfed us meanwhile SRC beast was usually unrelenting and tearing through the fog at MPS. We were crossing Badanadi river in Ganjam and running 15 mins before time.

To be continued...

The following lines should be given priority in the coming Budget by either allocating funds or through PPP
i)PAP - CCT/COA - KLPH - NS (Proivdes an alternative route to BZA to the already congested route Via SLO, RJY & EE)
ii)KVR - BDCR (By doing so RJY/KVR & BDCR will become big Junctions like SC, WL/KZJ, GTL, BZA, RU & VSKP and also it reduces the distance from RJY/COA/VSKP to SC,NDLS,LTT, SNSI etc)
- KHT (Asmentioned by Siva Rama Krishnan it is all weather route through backward areas)
v) NDL - YA
vi) GNPR - THV(RGDA) : Provides a direct link from NWP - PLH - GNPR - RGDA (Instead of circuitous Via (CHE, CPP, VZM, VBL, RGDA)
vii) Quadrupling and Electrification of BN - SC
viii) Third line from GPT - VSKP

If the line isn't a double line, a train may end up taking the same time as on the existing route. That was why I was talking about a double line.

Let a single line be laid first .. BDCR will come into mainline and Sree Seetha Ramachandra Swamy shrines which is known only to few people will become one the famous temples in India and more trains can be started from BZA, GNT & MTM. Many lines are laid even though ROI is very less the best eg was JAT - UHP - SINA - BRML Line and few lines in North East. It is only for connectivity not Revenue/Profit. That too Khammam Dist in Telangana is one of the most backward Dists.

Scenery, greenery, curves and the Eastern Ghats!! Mother Nature at its adorable best
22644 SRC shed WAP- 4 hauled 12703 Howrah (HWH)- Secunderabad (SC) FALAKNUMA Superfast Express enjoys the lazy winter afternoon by making a blast through the narrow corridor in between the Chilka Lake, and the Eastern Ghats. Just sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery, greenery and curves that the
train makes on its path while heading down south. On this video, you can just watch the Eastern Ghats, but sadly, the Chilka Lake would be missing, as it falls on the side side of the track. Location is between Khurdah Road, and Berhampore on the state of Orissa.
The Eastern Ghats, or Pūrva Ghaṭ, are a discontinuous range of mountains along India's eastern coast. The Eastern Ghats run from West Bengal state in the north, through Odisha and Andhra Pradesh to Tamil Nadu in the south passing some parts of Karnataka. They are eroded and cut through by the four major rivers of southern India, the Godavari, Mahanadi, Krishna, and Kaveri. The mountain ranges run parallel to the Bay of Bengal. The Deccan Plateau lies to the west of the range, between the Eastern Ghats and Western Ghats. The coastal plains lies between the Eastern Ghats and the Bay of Bengal. The Eastern Ghats are not as high as the Western Ghats.
The Eastern Ghats are older than the Western Ghats, and have a complex geologic history, related to the assembly and breakup of the ancient supercontinent of Rodinia and the assembly of the Gondwana supercontinent.
The Eastern Ghats are made up of charnockites, granite gneiss, khondalites, metamorphic gneisses, Quartzite rock formations. The formation of Eastern ghats is with thrusts and slip faults all along its range. Limestone, Bauxite, Iron Ore are also found in the Eastern Ghats hill ranges.
Eparchaean Unconformity (Tirumala hills) is a major discontinuity of stratigraphic significance that represents a period of remarkable serenity in the geological history of the earth. It is seen at the steep natural slopes, road scars and ravines in the Tirupati – Tirumala Ghat road in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh, India.
The highest mountain peak in the state of Odisha is Deomali (1672 m), which is situated in Koraput district in southern Odisha. It is part of the Chandragiri-Pottangi mountain system.The region covers about three-fourth of the entire Odisha State. Geologically it is a part of the Indian Peninsula which was a part of the ancient landmass of Gondwanaland. The major rivers of Odisha with their tributaries have cut deep and narrow valleys.
This region mostly comprises the hills and mountains of the Eastern Ghats which rise abruptly and steeply in the east and slope gently to a dissected plateau in the west running from north-west (Mayurbhanj) to south-west (Malkangiri). The Odisha highlands are also known as the Garhjat Hills. This region is well marked by a number of interfluves or watersheds. The Eastern Ghats is interrupted by a number of broad and narrow river valleys and flood plains. The average height of this region is about 900 metres above the mean sea level.
To the north of the Godavari the Eastern Ghats increase again in height, forming the boundary between Andhra Pradesh and Odisha. The Similipal Massif is considered the farthest northeast extension of the Eastern Ghats.
