why this train continuing as DEMU even though the entire route is electrified?
Why not MEMU rake??
just DEMU rake with WAM/G 4/5 engine used....
there is memu
Another one recently extended to odisha
Howrah-belda MEMU recently extended to Jaleswar
oh! ya ya
I didn't knew it
atleast it touches odisha
wish this could be ECoR MEMU then it could be more better like VSKP has
could be great when changed to ECoR status
Lot of people from CTC/BBS/KUR/PURI/BAM Travel to IPM, CHE, VZM & VSKP.
It will be better if the following trains are originated from BAM/KUR/BBS/PURI
i)58525/Palasa-Visakhapatnam Passenger (UnReserved)
ii)78531/Palasa Visakhapatnam DEMU
iii)67293/Palasa Visakhapatnam MEMU Passenger
i agree with you;both sides they needed extension
Guess what is stopping Railways to extend COA-VSKP Passenger to IPM/PSA/CHE. It is lying idle for @ 7-8 hrs at VSKP Parking area.
Many People from BBS, CTC, PURI and BAM travel to CHE, VZM and VSKP and Vice-versa. Though there are many trains in between these two places all of them are express trains only but none of them are passenger trains or EMU's. So I request the ECoR GM, CPTM, and DRM's of Waltair and Khurda Division to extend the below trains till VSKP as it fulfills the aspirations of both the regions.
78505 Balugaon Palasa Utkal Sammilan
78501 Cuttack Palasa DEMU
Dude there are already sufficient trains availble for VSKP from CHE, VZM.
VSKP needs more passenger trains to Tuni, SLO, Rajamundry.
I'm saying for PSA and beyond .. that there is demand from that Odisha side ..
VSKP can handle only some trains. We cannot keep on running trains to one side which will not allow other regions to get trains.
