Time has come for VSKP to say Good bye to ECoR ..
Announcement on Vizag zone after Union Budget, says Sujana
: Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has requested the Railway Ministry to take an expeditious decision on the creation of Visakhapatnam railway zone.
The Chief Minister, accompanied by Union Minister Y.S. Chowdary and P. Ashok Gajapati Raju, called on Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu

in New Delhi on Tuesday. Mr. Naidu submitted representation seeking speedy completion of pending works in the State, including connectivity between Amaravati and major cities in the south through high-speed trains.
He wanted the Railway Ministry to make sufficient budgetary allocations for the completion of the Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti and Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines besides requesting the Centre to hand over maintenance of the old bridge at Rajahmundry to the State Government. The State emphasised the need for ensuring that the allocations were made in the upcoming railway budget.
Mr. Chowdary said the Centre had given in-principle clearance for the railway zone in Visakhapatnam and the zone would be announced after the Union Cabinet formally gives its nod.
Development package
Creation of the special railway zone was part of the special development package assured to the State post bifurcation.
The State had also sought the Ministry to take up works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada. The Ministry was requested to consider the proposal for laying third line between Visakhapatnam and Chennai besides examining the proposals for development of infrastructure at important railway stations through joint ventures.
The Railway Minister, he said, positively responded to the representation and promised that surveys would be undertaken on the proposals submitted by the State Government as well as the MPs from the State.

how come it is catering both the cities
quota for VSKP had been decreased by ECoR, infact BBS has more quota than VSKP, for its extended trains - isn't true?
new coaches allotted to WAT are replaced by old coaches within weeks of their inauguration - isn't true?
new trains proposed for VSKP are rejected by ECoR stating irrelevant reasons and the same
...
more...
trains are lobbied to start from BBS - isn't true
trains running from BBS are given proper/effecient TT, while that of VSKP are given TT full of slacks or less TAT - isn't true?

Rake Composition as seen in Rajkot Junction on 2nd November 2016.
This is the coach composition for Rake-2 as there are two rakes of this train.
LOCO-SLR-GEN-GEN-GEN-S9-S8-S7-S6-S5-S4-S3-S2-PC-S1 -B3-A1-B2-B1-GEN-GEN-GEN-GEN-LD1. HP1 & HP2 were only coupled for that particular day which made it a 25 coach train (that's why not mentioned in cc). On other days it runs as a 23 coach train.

Rake Composition (as seen in Puri on 18th September 2016) -:
SLR-GEN-GEN-GEN-B3-B2-B1-A1-S9-PC-S8-S7-S6-S5-S4-S 3-S2-S1-GEN-GEN-GEN-SLR.
I asked about the rake sharing to a railway official & according to him, this rake is shared by 18405, 18421 & 12843.
And moreover he said that there are two rakes of this train and both the rakes have different coach arrangements.

18402 Okha Puri Dwarka Express traveling back in time in Jamnagar...LOL just a part of joke.
This train is diverted from Warangal to Eluru. It will go to Eluru through the Vijaywada bypass line without entering Vijaywada. According to the sources route relay interlocking work is going on. Many SCR trains are cancelled and many of them are diverted. Some of the trains from Howrah to Chennai are being terminated either at Eluru or Visakhapatnam while some others run via Vijayawada bypass, Kazipet, Kacheguda. The trains from New Delhi to Chennai are now being run via Kazipet and Secunderabad, Renigunta. The trains from Visakhapatnam to Hyderabad, New Delhi and Mumbai are diverted via Vijayawada byepass line. Trains from Chennai and Bangalore

are being terminated at Guntur or Krishna canal.
