Bihar has good railway connectivity than other eastern states due to max. no. of rail ministers for last 20-25 years. But, in terms of economy , growth & developments, Bihar may be behind other 3 states as there is no heavy industries & mines as well other source of revenue.

WB and Bihar are the leaders, Orissa & Jharkhand are in mid level and Assam at last.
(1)- With several intercity trains connecting the major cities with the State Capital, Almost all of the cities on railway network, large number of long distance trains WB is number one. Historically the Railway development was oriented with Kolkata as one of the 4 focal points (other being Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi). Post independence too WB got boost during the stints of Mr. Gani Khan Chowdhury & Ms Mamta Banerjee
(2) Bihar is no.2 and fairly close
to WB in major parameters. A lot of Rly development has taken place in last Bihar especially in last 2 decades as most of RMs hailed from this state.
(3) Orissa inherited a section of HWH-MAS & HWH-CSTM trunk lines. Substantial new lines were constructed for the mineral rich state which continues to give a huge profit to IR. After creation of ECoR zone and with efforts of state govt, many trains were introduced and substantial capacity augmentation was done.
(4) Jharkhand inherited a section of HWH-CSTM rail line. But many rail projects are progressing as Jharkhand govt participated in state's railway projects by sharing project cost. This mineral rich state too give a lot of profit to IR
(5) Assam had been a distinct laggard at the time of independence, but a lot of efforts and funds allocations have been made by IR/Govt of India to improve the connectivity of Assam to rest of the nation and the North East states through a plethora of very costly but strategically important projects (thanx to the hostile neighbouring country). Most of the lines in the state of Assam are loss making, but IR continues to spend a lot to fulfil strategic national interests.

West Bengal, without any doubt. Here are some points to suggest this:
1. There are a lot of points that can be mentioned about Howrah(HWH) station from the available options for any part of the country to facilities, the revenue generated by this station etc. Apart from HWH, SDAH and KOAA(that maintains international train) should not be ignored. Other stations in he state like NJP, Malda, Asansol, BWN, KGP etc have also got a widespread Railway connectivity.
2. Kolkata, the capital of WB is the former Indian capital, one of the six metropolitan
cities and most populous cities in India.The city houses some major company bases like ITC, Britannia, Bata etc. The rural area has got developed agriculture sector which is at par with the other mentioned states, at least. The presence of places like Darjeeling, the historical city of Kolkata itself etc supports tourism sector of the state.
3. Education scene of this state has got premier institutes in the picture, like IIT, ISI, IIM, Jadavpur University, IISER, NIT to name a few. The sports sector of this states is again at par with other ones with Cricket and football being most followed sports. WB hosts international cricket matches and is also important football hub of the country. There are some major steel plants and industries in the Durgapur-Asansol belt that largely supports economy of the region.
And many more!

Time has come for VSKP to say Good bye to ECoR ..
Announcement on Vizag zone after Union Budget, says Sujana
: Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has requested the Railway Ministry to take an expeditious decision on the creation of Visakhapatnam railway zone.
The Chief Minister, accompanied by Union Minister Y.S. Chowdary and P. Ashok Gajapati Raju, called on Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu
in New Delhi on Tuesday. Mr. Naidu submitted representation seeking speedy completion of pending works in the State, including connectivity between Amaravati and major cities in the south through high-speed trains.
He wanted the Railway Ministry to make sufficient budgetary allocations for the completion of the Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti and Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines besides requesting the Centre to hand over maintenance of the old bridge at Rajahmundry to the State Government. The State emphasised the need for ensuring that the allocations were made in the upcoming railway budget.
Mr. Chowdary said the Centre had given in-principle clearance for the railway zone in Visakhapatnam and the zone would be announced after the Union Cabinet formally gives its nod.
Development package
Creation of the special railway zone was part of the special development package assured to the State post bifurcation.
The State had also sought the Ministry to take up works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada. The Ministry was requested to consider the proposal for laying third line between Visakhapatnam and Chennai besides examining the proposals for development of infrastructure at important railway stations through joint ventures.
The Railway Minister, he said, positively responded to the representation and promised that surveys would be undertaken on the proposals submitted by the State Government as well as the MPs from the State.
Thrust areas
Sufficient budgetary allocations for completion of Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti, Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines

how come it is catering both the cities
quota for VSKP had been decreased by ECoR, infact BBS has more quota than VSKP, for its extended trains - isn't true?
new coaches allotted to WAT are replaced by old coaches within weeks of their inauguration - isn't true?
new trains proposed for VSKP are rejected by ECoR stating irrelevant reasons and the same
trains are lobbied to start from BBS - isn't true
trains running from BBS are given proper/effecient TT, while that of VSKP are given TT full of slacks or less TAT - isn't true?

KOSI EXPRESS sirf naam hin kaafi tha . ek samay ye train shc , kgg, bgs waalon ke liye life line tha ,lekin jab se ise purnia court tak extend kiya gaya tab se iski importance aur priorty dono ghat gayi hai . rojona ye train up me avg 3 ghante se jaada late rehti hai ya kabhi cancel ho jaati hai . jis se is train se travel karne waale
yatri iski ticket kata ke majbooran rajya rani me chadhte hain . aur jahan rajya rani nahin rukti wahan ke logon ke liye kosi hin sahara , chahe late aaye ya na aaye .
Iski rake sharing hatia - patna ke saath hone ki wajah se , 18625 bhi late rehti hai ya kabhi cancel .
is train ko phir se life line banane ke liye iska destination pehle ke tarah saharsha kar dena chaiye .
Agar extent hin karni hai to iski jagah saharsha intercity kar de purnia jn . aur bhi kami lage to 13206[janhit] ko bhi kar de extend purnia jn tak.

well guess we need to consider the fact that SHC has currently only 2 PFs and to add to the problem for train to move towards Madhepura, loco reversal is needed. so any train which is going towards Madhepura from SHC is going to get delayed and also in all probability going to delay some other train as well . Currently work being carried out to add 3 more PF's at SHC, which should take one more year to complete, but as of now no plans to solve loco reversal problem. so railway only planning half solution for this section.

:O, Seems some confusion happened.
Pls. stop misquoting me. Where have I said so?
My only comment was about GS Trains and not much demand for a fully unreserved train as unlike Bihar, Jharkhand does not supply low skilled laborers in high volumes to the southern states.
Pls. read my post and try to understand it.

I think you need to work on your understanding of plain English. I have never said so. I only said that Jharkhand generally has low demand of Unreserved seats to south destinations unlike Bihar. The proof is in the no. of GS Coaches in the train.

Is there any latest update on separate rakes for 13351 & 18189 ?? Though extremely difficult, have been lately hearing the same from quite a few sources. Recently travelled for a short distance by this train from ERS till PGT. The AC coach attendant and even one of the pantry staff were speaking something on similar lines. Not sure if this going to be a reality .
All depends on how ECR and SER put pressure on railway authorities. ! In its return journey lot of people from ERS,PGT & CBE travel use this as a day option to travel to KPD, Chennai etc.
