Kakinada has daily train connectivity to Chennai, Bangalore & Hyderabad whereas VSKP/CBE or other major stations in south dont have a daily dedicated connectivity to the three metros. Any specific reason? Members please clarify. Kakinada part of SR anytime in the past? If it is so then that could be the reason since Circar is the oldest train compared to Gowtami/Seshadri.

For Tirumala 5 coaches used to run from CCT/COA and few more from VSKP will be combined to run a single train from SLO & at BZA few more were added...CCT/COA earlier to tirumala was dependent on TPTY Passenger which has 2 SL coaches also.
Once Seshadri came used to run via EE before till TPTY later was extended to SBC....It had RSA with Goutami also. Later Tirumala became dedicated for VSKP and Seshadri via BVRT. There was a info that Tirumala could have been run via BVRT & Seshadri via EE but didn't happen.
Yes but TVC will provide more pax and quota wise now restricted a bit till TEN. Also post doubling and converted to SF this will be the fastest connection between MS & TVC which might make TVC pax to use this as their primary connectivity to Chennai.
Kakinada is a dist HQ as well as useful for East Godavari dist the biggest populous dist in AP wat is the need in extending to VSKP..don't post any thing related to AP which will lead to bashing..I simply delete all u r blogs..
One more useless post from u.. better stop extension proposals .. it is very clear you dont have any knowledge /info abt this regions... kakinada terminating trains are dedicated to godavari dist ppl.. it will be of no use so stop funny proposals
dont remember Circar starting from Beach- Only Ganga Kaveri used to run from Beach to facilitate connecting train (Boatmail) from Varanasi to Rameshwaram- Boatmail used to run from Beach on days of Ganga Kaveri for the conenction

MS 19.00 (12642, 12652 have reached at 18.00 || 12663/12665 will arrive at 19.55) GDR 21.45/21.47 (12669/12967/12969 | 12759 | 12709 | 12615 | 17401 have already left) (Also with loco as LGD WAP 4/ WAP 7, acceleration shouldn't be a problem) TEL 02.09/02.10 (GDR-TEL 262 kms can be covered at 60 kmph with WAP 4/7) NGNT 02.38/02.40 BZA 03.55/04.15 (18520 has already left) BVRT 06.40 NDD 07.50 KVR 08.05/08.15 (12718 OT) RJY 08.35/08.40 (Utilising the 30 minute gap between 12718 and 12840) SLO 09.40 CCT 10.00 COA 10.15 17644: COA 15.15 SLO 15.45 RJY 16.40/16.45 (18463 | 18047/12867/12254 | 12717 have already left before 17644 reaches SLO) BVRT 18.25 KKLR 19.00 GDV 20.00 BZA 21.00/21.20 (17488 can depart at 21.10) (Also, 17644 waits at KCC for 12704 which is now avoided) NGNT 22.00 TEL 22.45 MS 06.30 I had noticed earthwork going on for doubling works on BZA-GDV-BVRT section. The maximum progress is between KKLR-AKVD where levelling is also done. The whole process may take 24 months from now. Consolidation work near KKLR towards GDV. I haven't seen any earthworks in BVRT-NDD section. Has anyone seen it there?
