Either SR or SCR must take up links of SWR trains and locos must be allotted accordingly. With MYS-SBC stretch electrification nearing completion, more P7s maybe allotted to RPM. Also, I got an info that ED will start holding P7s shortly.

today we see each and every train is going via vizag and its giving much profit to scer not to scr.also when a train is filled with end to end then wht is the purpose of other trains to go vizag.simply for increasing freight charges with additional stoppages?
also its eating 1hr time for going and coming back to further move destination. earlier they used to skip this station for direct trains but now why changes had come?

U didnt understood: Train getting passenger from start is different scenario thn train getting filled end-to-end!!
I wish to get educated to know about any 1 train in IR which regularly gets filled/booked from end-to end..DRNTO guised as M/E/multiple stop train, especially which routes via VSKP!!

Its easy to discuss or argue. Here end to end filled mean its not 100%, its 100% packed with GNWL quota. Also general coaches packed in 3-4 station from where they started. Better example is Falknuma exp, Coromandal exp. Even you wont place to sit in sleeper in most of GHY bound trains to South at VSKP. This happens 90% of the year.

So u mean if GEN Coaches are jampacked, the train dont need to go VSKP?? GNWL Quota doesnt mean End-to-End (or say few stations from start & few stations with terminating station) but source to mid station also!!
/pnr /pnr PQ Quota...charting done @ source only!! /pnr/post/1982253 /pnr/blog/2271272
So mayb wht u c packed @ Source station do have many which has to alight at many intermediate stations!!

Its not IF , i am surely GEN packed for the trains i listed from starting 2-3 stations. It goes to VSKP or wont stop between is in the hands of Railways.
I said the above trains sleeper filled in most of the days as i travelled. In Howrah mail you can see 100 people also with many having waiting list tickets occupies. GHY trains to south also has same issue by the time they reaches VSKP. As of now AC coaches are little fine.
The above list of trains which i

U mean these trains shld bye-pass VSKP, as stated by earlier blogger?? As told, jampack doesnt mean end-to-end booking (GN doesnt mean starting station combo to end station combo) but only states...charting will be done @ source (& so do PQWL & RSWL etc)!!
RS/RL etc starts mostly after WL starts!! Not just VSKP, the mentioned bunch of trains have berth issues for all intermediate stations!!

I went to kancharapalem rly gate which is 2 km before Vskp rly station on Friday. The following are the trains which passed me
1. 18510 Nanded Vskp Exp is standing and when I looked back one more train is waiting right behind. To confirm I went to some 100m in the rly track side road and one more exp train with WAP 4 is waiting and I could see one post may be block section limit but couldn't find where the signal post is. This train of 23 bogies and it's standing just at a visible distance. @ 10:19, 10:20

18510 got clearance (after 10:30) and slowly moved into the station and simultaneously the train behind also came forward 12863 HWH YPR exp @ 10:38. The signal is marked red and it proceeded slowly towards the post and on reaching got signal and went past.
3. As 12863 passed the gate I could see one more train approaching the place where this train is standing before and it slowly passed the point I was standing @ 1041 and came to a halt at the red signal @ 1042 and it was Pune BBS super fast express.
4.As the BBS Pune exp halted I spotted one more train approaching the block section board right behind and it's Palasa Vskp passenger.

Time has come for VSKP to say Good bye to ECoR ..
Announcement on Vizag zone after Union Budget, says Sujana

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.

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?

agree Pune and MGS are dirtiest
1. How come PUNE at 9 and SBC at 10. SBC is much clean than POOR POONA
2. CR clean than SCR. Biggest joke
3. VSKP@ A1-1 is total political concession for Zone demand (Where was this VSKP last year and check facts)
