Since there are many train from Hwh to Ypr ..including one daily (12245+22863)
I think 12863 should restrict itself till BBS/PURI

Please do not compare Kolkata with VSKP..Kolkata serves as the hub of Indian Railways of eastern region...people from neighboring states Jharkhand, some parts of Bihar and the whole of North East depends on Kolkata...

VSKP is also not small ..
3 North Coastal Dists depend on VSKP ..
Also Southern & South West Dists of Odisha also depend on VSKP
Parts of Chattisgarh also depend on VSKP ..
I'm not comparing VSKP to HWH or any other place .. but do not demean other cities ..
People & their necessity to travel is same across anywhere

u must have been surely out of your demand before making such demand....a train which runs jampacked 365 days u want it to be restricted till bbs in return for a train which runs 5 days a week and is expensive and a second weekly ac express train.....think about the normal people who don't want to spend an extra amount on duronto and who can't really afford ac tickets.....think twice before posting such kind of blogs

Both were hit train and i am not against its increase in freq...
And i guess both are non budget trains,i am sure abt SUR exp as non budj trains not sure abt Bidar exp.
My point is from the day 1 SUr exp is superhit....it means the demand is very clear if Kharge was not RM will the train be on tracks till now if on tracks also will it be a SF with such perfect timings?
of SUR SF converting tri weekly to daily YPR SC GR given new TT,later for Bidar exp to make daily the GR has again lost its glory.
If kharge was not RM will the SUR SF has become daily by creating new slot for YPR GR

Request expert views on linking Gauribidanur to Chikkaballapur (GBD to CBP) in Karnataka. Distance is around 35 kms. If this line is possible, then many goods trains and long distance passenger trains can get diverted from Gauribidanur to Chikballapur and then towards Kolar, Bangarpet to join JTJ line. Main advantage will include that SBC-KJM-YNK and surroundings will become less congested and trains can be speeded up also.

Isn't that a ghat section? SWR is struggling to take action on existing lines itself. I really wonder if they will even think about this line.

I am not sure. If you are clear about the problems, clearly state. Otherwise, as part of GTL-YNK doubling, this can also be taken up. This will open up another alternate route which can reduce congestion in and around Bengaluru.

YNK-CBP line can be extended to Gauribidanur. Only 35 Kms. Will provide great relief for the congested DMM-YNK stretch.
Also, Gauribidanur to Tumakuru line (65 Kms) can be thought of. This can act as a link from Mangalore/ Shimoga/ Arsikere to DMM side without touching Bangalore.

Spotted 12193 YPR-JBP SF EXP to overtake 17604 YPR-KCG Prashanti Nilayam EXP near GBD/Gauribidanur but there is no such information on this site.

Re# 1296935-1            Tags   Past Edits
That might not be true all the time.
May be in this case, Prashanti Nilayam would have been running late and JBP express on time. As JBP is a Superfast, it would have gotten priority.
Otherwise as per the schedule, Prashanti Nilayam Should reach HUP 15 minutes earlier than JBP express and The over take doesn't happen since Prashanti Nilayam takes the route towards SSPN from PKD while JBP goes Direct to DMM from PKD.
when JBP would reach DMM ahead of Prshanti Nilayam.

Actually I have seen 12193 overtakes it when it was standing on its scheduled halt at GBD. Prasanti Nilayam and YPR-JBP Sf has same departure time from YPR.
Secondly Prasanti Nilayam got delayed in most cases.
As 12193 is superfast and given more priority than exp, it overtakes Prasanti Nilayam.

Many people daily travels from BBS/CTC, KUR & PURI to BAM, IPM,SPT,PSA, NWP, CHE, VZM & VSKP and vicerversa. So ECoR had introduced an ICE (Train # 18411) from BBS to VSKP but it has as many as 25 halts between BBS & VSKP and in one way it can be called as passenger train rather than express train as it takes 8 hrs. The very purpose of introducing an ICE is becoming void as people who want to travel early from BBS to VSKP are taking Train # 18463 Prasanthi exp and if they miss it they have the weeklies Anga, Amaravati & HWH - PDY exp and no one is boarding the ICE as it is super slow. So it will be better if that ICE speed is increased (along with increase in coaches with Pantry car) and if it covers the distance in 6:30 mins and it...
could act as a link exp to 18463 and it would be better 18463 is restricted between VSKP and SBC. For eg: ICE starts at 5:30/6:00 at BBS and 12/12:30 and 18463 can start at 1 PM as usual (if ICE gets delayed then automatically 18463 will also gets delayed & viceversa in the reverse direction) and similarly 18464 reaches at 1:15 and ICE can start at 2/2:30 and can reach BBS 8:30/9. In this way lot of fuel and man power can be saved and that rake can used for some other purpose.

Re# 1271343-2            Tags   Past Edits
I guess, it will be tough to increase the speed with the stops it has. With a SF tag, 12839 Mail is taking 7:30 mins for 11 halts and this ICE takes 7hrs 55 mins for 25 halts with express tag. For 1st 166kms, itself it has 14 halts, after that for around 280 kms 11 halts. It still takes correct time for its halts i guess. 18463/64 started from VSKP in the beginning. Later it moved to BBS.
