REAL GARIBS are living in SRIKAKULAM district . But S.C.Railway is not in favor of extending the GARIB RATH EXPRESS up to PALASA. It is high time the train is extended up to PALASA to provide a chance to the people of sklm district to experience the travel by AC coaches.
Actually GR rake belongs to ECoR (VSKP). SCR took the rake to run specials to AKP. One fine day SCR have given the dates on inauguration of GR which ECoR objected. But after some lobby SCR got the rake. Many might have observed that for 08 made coaches, 'ECo' was re-painted and written as SC. Still few coaches which have not gone for POH have the same.
I don't have any records as of now. Perhaps, you can check old SCR PR's (2008/2007 - not sure) where they ran it as a special to AKP, then they have given a date for inauguration, cancelled it and SCR gave a new inauguration date.
