The last service of YPR PDY GR is on arrival to Puducherry !!! Thanks for serving to PDY (W/E) since 2009.. Being a BISHOP (chess piece) of Indian Railways will forgo its service to its KNIGHT as EXP/MAIL.
This will go SER.. But have they mentioned that an AC express rake will be given to SWR from SER.
but they are talking about that GR rake which is currently using in YPR-KCVL GR.
SWR..currently has 3 GR rakes.. 1 wll be retained for YPR-KCVL GR, other will be given to SER and third rake yet to be decided
Why not Bangalore - Mumbai GR or Bangalore - Ahmedabad GR???
SBC-CSTM looks highly unlikely in the near future
Any plans for SWR to use this GR Rake??
In that case even YPR-JP GR Special will stop. SWR has only 2 rakes of GR. One is needed for KCVL GR. Why SWR transfered it to SER?? THey should have used it to run YPR-JP spl as bi-weekly....
iinstead of ypr-hwh ac express . GR may be given
I m bit sceptical about YPR-AC express getting introduced as log depends on next govt.
Yes.. this came at the very wrong time esp. when YPR-JP was doing good.
Today is the last run of the 12255/6 Pondicherry Garib Rath, It was always under loss for all the 5 years it was running, a rare Garib Rath that ran empty all the time! RIP PDY GR.
SWR is making a big mistake and foregoing the chance make a fortune by not using this rake to increase the frequency of 12257/8, a mistake they will rue in the future.
They could have transferred to scr so tat ypr-kcg freq was increased
Now SWR Should Run a Biweekly Garibrath Between YPR and LTT With this train's Rake with the Following Schedule.
YPR LTT Garibrath Express
YPR Dep 13:50 Pm
Davangere 18:49 Pm 18:52 Pm
Hubli Jn 21:40 Pm 21:50 Pm
Belgaum 00:30 Am 00:32 Am
Miraj Jn 03:15 Am 03:20 Am
Pune Jn 08:45 Am 09:00 Am
Lonavala 10:00 Am 10:02 Am
Kalyan Jn 11:35 Am 11:40 Am
Good idea. But instead of wasting 2 days (meaning day time), I suggest following timings:
YPR Dep 10:00 AM, Hubli Jn 17:50 / 18:00, Miraj Jn 23:00 / 23:15 Pune Jn 05:15 / 05:25 LTT Arr 08:30 Hrs
LTT Dep 19:45 Pune Jn 22:50 / 23:00 Miraj Jn 05:00 / 05:15 Hubli Jn 10:15 / 10:25 YPR Arr 18:15.
Timings will be very convenient to Bangalore-Pune and LTT/Pune - UBL passengers also.
Hey congrats Sparsh - it seems Rlys took your suggestion seriously.....that too so soon!
Why there is still no TT for 16574 YESVANTPUR Express (Replacement for GR). Will they change the day of run to Sunday?
sunday its not possible becos of chalukya..
Since this train is going to end its service soon, wish railway uses its rake for a garib rath between New delhi and yeswantpur. People will like it at best.
I Rather want a Good Speed LTT Yesvantpur Biweekly Garibrath or a KYQ/HWH YPR Garibrath, couple of trains are Available for Delhi, but very limited trains for these Places.
12255/56 Yesvantpur Puducherry Garibrath is Now Withdrawn Away From Service.
It will have its Last Run on 14th March.
A New train 16573/74 Yesvantpur Puducherry Weekly Express with Sleeper, Ac 3 Tier and AC 2 Tier Accomodation will Run instead of it on Same Day and Same timings.
Still it wont belong to NR...blogger told rake will move to NR
It is having RSA with KCVL GR. So hope it gets a dedicated rake now.
Then KCVL GR frequency can be increased.
They cannot use a GR Rake for premium train at all, its highly uncomfortable on name of premium
Slowly now GR rakes will be ageing (already going to eb 10 yrs old)..and they will be phased out either by converting successful GRs to AC Expresses and unsuccessful ones to normal SFs like this one.. One more candidate which will soon get converted to SF/Express will be ASR-LKU AC express which uses rake of ASR-SHC GR
Ask Kodikkunil to make it daily :)
Guess he wasn't aware of this RSA lite...
KCVL-YPR AC Express is also there already....
But tymings are different ..
they will remove smb and use it ..
