Welcoming The New Year
The First train I shot in the New Year. On a cold and chilly wintry January morning, a refreshing bike ride to a vast open field somewhere between Tiruppur and Uttukuli was all that was needed. As if it was not enough, Tirupati bound intercity suddenly rushed past at full throttle. As the train rushes towards the rising Sun, The New Year begins for me.

May 10 2016 (09:22)   Passengers in Garib Rath ‘rat’tled

“I was forced to make a transit halt at Hyderabad for about 12 hours to travel to Bengaluru from Visakhapatnam on May 7. Though I had planned the trip more than three weeks ahead, there was no accommodation on the direct trains. The only convenient option was to take the Vizag-Secunderabad Garib Rath and from Secunderabad to Bengaluru by the Yesvantapur Garib Rath,” says B. Nithyasri of Visakhapatnam, who travelled along with her family on a holiday.
The major issue in the Vizag-Secunderabad Garib Rath was that the water in the toilets ran low quite early in the night. “The G-14, which was the second last coach, on the Yesvanatapur Garib Rath also seemed to be neat and clean but children screamed
on seeing a bandicoot, criss-crossing the floor from under the berth, and refused to sleep in the lower berths,” the passenger noted. “A mother was relaxing on the lower berth along with her five-month-old baby at that time shifted to the side upper berth out of fear. We hope rat biting incidents would not occur on trains,” she said.
I had travelled by 02877 Visakhapatnam – Krishnarajapuram Suvidha Special on May 6. The train started at 5:30 a.m. from Vizag but many people brought general tickets to Rajahmundry/Bezawada/Ongole and Renigunta and boarded the train as majority of the seats were empty, a regular traveller Ravi Kishore of Visakhapatnam wrote.
I wondered as to why anyone would spend Rs. 1,000 (dynamic fare) when they could spend a mere Rs.300 and enjoy the same benefit. Who would waste such huge amount and travel the whole day in this train rather take a bus?
I feel this train needs to be converted into a daytime Inter City Express (ICE) as it perfectly suits that purpose. It will also reduce the load on Janmabhoomi (12805) as people going to Rajahmundry/Bezawada prefer this one.
Similarly, there is huge demand for ICE from Bezawada/Guntur to Tirupati (as 17406 Adilabad - Tirupathi Krishna Express is overcrowded) and this can meet that need also. Also there are many people from Tirupati/Renigunta working in Bengaluru and again this train can act as an inter city express for them too and help them reach Bengaluru by night.
Also the authorities (SWR and E Co R) have to explain as to who will board a train that departs at 1 a.m. from its originating station Krishnarajapuram, which is far. The train needs to be re-scheduled to start at 5 a.m. in Bengaluru for the benefit of Tirupati-bound (for Balaji Darshan) and from there again its serves as intercity for people going to Bezawada/Rajahmundry as there is huge demand for Tirupati-Visakhapatnam ICE for a long time.

spending huge money is correct,bcz i am not for the concept of suvidha.
but what are you guys doing when ECoR proposed for change in TT,its been warned many times here to have a eye on KJM-VSKP as ECOR trying to prove no demand between VSKP and Bangalore.
stp such scrap stories and try t stop more trains geting extended.

wtr it is mix masala or something ..
It is true that it will serve more number of people from various cities if it was converted to ICE ..
I agree with the content ..
It will be combination of 3 diff ICE's ..
between 22615/6 & 22617/8 can be removed as this will serve as in place of that ..

Train # 22617 SBC - TPTY SF ICE has RSA between Train# 22616 CBE - TPTY SF ICE. It should be removed and then the train should be extended till BZA / GNT. The departure timing in SBC must be advanced to around 6:00 AM and similarly another train should start from BZA / GNT after Train # 12711 Pinakini SF ICE. And Train # 22616 can be made daily as RSA was removed. This will be help two things i) People from SBC can get a direct intercity to NLR , OGL, GNT/BZA and Viceversa ii) People of CBE, TUP, ED & SA can get daily ICE instead of 3 days a week to TPTY.
