Belagavi needs an overnight fast train to Bengaluru more than an Intercity between the cities, the load on Rani Chennamma is too huge as its the only dedicated train for the whole UBL-BGM-MRJ route. None have asked for pitlines at BGM/BAY/BJP !!!

Except Pratap Simha, rest of the MP's would not have idea about pitline. Even if they demand do you think SWR is generous enough to go for it?

Dats SWR which uses concept of RSA to the fullest. Even its fr sake of maintenance y an SCR rake for a train which is for SWR. And I am 100% Sure that Sriramulu wouldnt have looked and wouldnt have idea of this PM, pitline and all. He might have just quoted GTL as it is a major junc.

Also no MPs seem to have questioned when the Hosapete-Kotturu line would be open and trains would ply on that section.

I'm happy to share that during my North Karnataka Trip I found that most of the stations of SWR are very clean and neat.
It's very good initiative by SWR Hubali Division to maintain the stations, I never seen such cleanliness in Toilets, Waiting Room, Platforms and Outside of station also.
e.g. Gadag, Badami, Hospet etc.

Travelled from SBC to Hubbali on 29th Sept.
Though it came to SBC by a single WDP4, by morning there were 3 locos- a WDG4 sandwiched between WDP4s hauling Hampi.

I know very well the feeling of people staring, as if something very strange is going on! Had to keep my excitement under control too many times.
People don't understand why we take pics of Trains/Locos in the least, they think we're stupid :P

Yes, UBL WDG4D in between WDP4s.
That night Hampi had stopped for almost 1.5hrs somewhere while there was one overtake (probably YPR-GKP exp as it runs on Thursday) and many crossings, either its loco must have failed there or this must be a regular affair as its single line with too many crossings and got the extra locos at GTL. Still reached UBL 20mins late.

Hope SWR runs some trains in this route soon. I recently travelled through BAY-Chitradurga-Chikjajur line, there was just 1 crossing with a freight train in the 4hrs journey. Its highly underutilised and still SWR is not planning to run more trains on that route.
The new lines being built should not lie under utilised after spending 100's of crores.

wish to see the Time table of 17643 as below :
MS - 17:20
GDR - 19:57
NLR - 20:20
OGL - 21:55 (Overtaken by 17209)
- 22:45
TEL - 23:55
NGNT - 00:30
BZA - 1:20 / 1:40
GDV - 2:30
BVRT - 4:00
NDD - 5:10
RJY - 5:50
SLO - 6:45
CCT - 7:10
COA- 7:30
Distance - 700
TT - 14 hrs 10 mins
Speed - 49 kmph
From years it is being abused with its TT.. Wish for a genuine speed up like above.
With this TT, its base can be changed from KCG to COA and PM can be done in slot before 12738. and RSA can be established with 17225/6 if its extension is considered to COA.

Re# 1931892-52            Tags   Past Edits
Last year both sides 20 mins slow chesindi vastavame and the reason is to minimize TAT at COA by 40 mins as it occupies the PF1 at COA. But if COA itself caters to PM of teh train, then d rake will nt stay idle at the pf. Besides, additional pf is coming up at CCT. Kaali ga unaadu ani Gowtami ki 9 hrs ichadu kani, it can be reduced down. And the slot of 8-14 hrs in Gowtami's pitline can be given to circar. Gowtami taking 14:00- 20:00 hrs slot. And with this the 17225 can follow its current TT comfortably upto COA if RSA established between 17225 and circar.
PM-17225-17226-17644-17644- PM.
, still you have 8 weekly slots of PM available at COA- 6 slots of 15:00-21:00 and 2 slots of 22:00-4:00.
