Four of the eight trains bypassing the city to be rerouted from July 1
As many as four of the eight trains bypassing Visakhapatnam junction will be rerouted through Visakhapatnam with effect from July 1 this year, according to reliable sources.
...
Read more...
A communication to this effect is said to have been received from the Railway Board by the South Eastern Railway (SER), Eastern Railway (ER), and South Western Railway (SWR).
The four trains to be rerouted are Howrah-Vasco Amaravathi (four days a week), Howrah-Puducherry Aurobindo weekly, Bhagalpur-Yeshwantpur Anga weekly and Santragachi-Tirupathi weekly express. Kambhampati Haribabu, MP of Visakhapatnam, has been demanding rerouting of the diverted trains particularly, Howrah-Vasco Amaravathi Express to link the two important tourist destinations of Goa and Visakhapatnam.
The diverted trains on which no decision has been taken are Howrah-Pransanthi Nilayam weekly, Howrah-Yeswantpur Duronto five days a week, Kamakhya-Yeswantpur AC weekly and Kamakhya – Bengaluru premium weekly express. While welcoming the decision to reroute four trains, East Coast Railway Shramik Union president Ch. Gandhi wanted the other trains also to be brought to Visakhapatnam at the earliest.
Many of the trains originating from Visakhapatnam junction have less than 24 coaches and they could be permanently augmented with additional coaches to meet the high demand for berths, especially during the long summer holidays.
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has already appointed an outsourced agency during February this year for establishment of Common User Domestic Air Cargo Terminal (CUDCT) at 24 airports, including Visakhapatnam, said Union Minister of Civil Aviation Pusapati Ashok Gajapathi Raju in the Lok Sabha in a written reply to a query raised by Visakhapatnam MP Kambhampati Haribabu.
The Union Minister said that the international air cargo operations, at the proposed common user facility, are expected to be commissioned in six months after compilation of the Notice Inviting Tenders (NIT) process.

True Venkat .. There should be EMU's from TUNI to VZM Via VSKP (not DVD again) every 15/20 mins and vice-versa first and then think of diversions. PDT and DVD need to be developed as satellite stations at least in the new zone with high priority !!!

yes it wasted so much money due to these diversions. Fright to steel plant got effected in earlier timings. At least introduction of EMU trains between DVD-VSKP might have saved them.
I think instead of DVD there should be a railway station at Gopalapatnam-Airport region which should be accessible to highway will help. Else 3 rd line between VSKP-SCMN is required urgently to remove slacks.

Now I know such things are common at other places but here in Goa its rare and only happening with this train I think which implies the significance of this train for Goa as a whole but still neglected by IR
Heard something interesting about this train about from some friends of mine and dad at Vasco Da Gama, that prior to the night before its departure in the morning passengers mostly unreserved ones from the entire state gather outside the premises of VSG Railway station and spend the entire night outside the station because of following two reasons:
1. The officials of VSG railway station don't allow the unreserved passengers in until morning and even maybe some people feel it convenient outside as the place is much less smelly than the tracks. Lol.
2. Train departs Vasco early in the morning at 7.10 am and unlike other states local buses don't start here early at 5.00 am or so. Some people may say that they can board it at Madgaon or Sanvordem
...
Read more...
since Madgaon is having some KR trains coming from Pernem or Canacona ends and it reaches Sanvordem at a good time but its UR coaches get full at Vasco itself.
So the entire point of the above discussion is that the this action must be frequently witnessed by the Railways, why don't they realize that this is one of the most important trains running in IR and the only one connecting Goa to AP, Orissa, West Bengal and places in Karnataka like Hospet, Gadag, Bellary and finally free it of its burden of slip coaches so S.E.R. who very well Know its demand can augment it with more coaches and also increase its frequency to daily.
Also we very well know how much great the current slip is but that greatness is far beyond our imagination so we want something great which we can actually imagine and that is by having a simple full length train from Vasco to Hyderabad which is not as great as this slip train.
Once the train is made daily and more UR coaches are added it would become less crowded at Vasco and it people would be able to board it at Madgaon or Sanvordem hassle free.
Now I know such things are common at other places but here in Goa its rare and only happening with this train I think which implies the significance of this train for Goa as a whole but still neglected by IR.

But sadly IR doesn't pay much attention to it. Even the slip train running with this train should be delinked as run as a separate full length train with good timings.

There is no official halt for this train at DDS you will have to book till CLR or LD. Or else you can try boarding at VSG incase of UR coach. Regarding DDS halt I think this train does have a brief stop there but its not an official one.
