Feb 06 2017 (22:32)   Railways to show green signal to a train in Andaman and Nicobar

A 240-KM broad-gauge railway line connecting two major islands, with bridges and stations along the coast, will be part of an ambitious rail link connecting Port Blair with Diglipur on the Andaman and Nicobar Islands — a first in the country that will bring the archipelago on the rail map.
The Railway Ministry is set to approve the project, which will connect the Union Territory’s capital city in the south with the largest town on the north Andaman island currently linked by a 350-km bus service that takes over 14 hours and a ship that takes around 24 hours. There is no air connectivity.
to an internal survey report of the ministry, the cost of the line will be Rs 2,413.68 crore with a negative rate of return on investment of -9.64 per cent. The Railways considers a line to be commercially viable if this figure is at least a positive of 12 per cent. But the ministry is set to approve this project owing to its “uniqueness and strategic importance”, according to documents reviewed by The Indian Express.
The ministry’s Planning and Finance directorates cleared the project last week saying it is desirable because “it is unique, away from the mainland, and has tourism potential.”
Giving a fillip to the rail link, the Union Territory administration has agreed to share 50 per cent of the project’s operational cost — or loss.
“As soon as the line is commissioned, tourism will see a jump from the current 4.5 lakh visitors a year to around 6 lakh a year, as per our estimates. So even though the railway survey shows a negative return, our assessment is otherwise. However, we have agreed to share the operational losses, if any,” Jagdish Mukhi, Lieutenant Governor of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, told The Indian Express.
According to the UT administration, the line has tourism potential and is of “immense strategic value” to the defence forces because Diglipur is just 300 km by sea from the southern coast of Myanmar — a broad-gauge train line from Port Blair to Diglipur will take three hours at the most.
The Railways’ Planning wing has suggested that the project may be taken up as part of the strategic lines it will build for Defence ministry, such as those in the border regions of the Northeast. The Finance arm has said that it may be taken up as a national project, like the Kashmir link, in which the general exchequer is billed. The Railway Board will take a final view on this issue soon.
The initial survey for the proposed line was completed in December 2014 but the plan was dropped. Last year, the project received a fresh push when the Railways updated the survey and the UT administration said it would chip in.
Among the major tourist attractions in Diglipur are the Ross and Smith islands. “These are just two of the main attractions. Lakhs of tourists take great pains to reach there from Port Blair every year. With the railway line in place, that part essentially become a part of the capital, beneficial to tourists, local residents and the defence forces,” said Mukhi

Very useful anna
There is a push from the military for this line.That's why the proposal even came up despite the negative returns.
The broad gauge line is required for quick mobilization of military equipment.
For tourism, and even the local traffic, an MG line would be very economical and the rolling stock from the mainland routes which are going through GC can be sent here instead of scrapping them.
This proposal for a MG/NG line was in fact put forward a few times in the past as well). Andaman had a NG tramway (light railway which even had a locomotive working on it) for many decades between Wimberleyganj and Shore Point (with many branches) called the 'Wimberlygunj Forest tramway'. It was proposed to convert portions of this into a light railway to serve Port Blair and the surroundings, but the proposal never took off.

Finally the D day has come when NER has taken mega block to link tracks at STP/Sitapur. 20 hours of 2 day long mega block been taken (10 hour's each day) where new track (coming from ASH/Aishbagh) will be linked to existing track (coming from BUW/Burhwal). Post mega block which is part of ASH-STP GC any train coming from LJN-ASH-LC-DAL can go to SPN-MB via STP/SCC along with MLN-PBE route and any train coming from GKP-GD-BUW can also go to MLN-PBE route along with SPN-MB route and vice versa. Now STP/Sitapur will have 5 BG line. Have a look of small glimpse of mega block.

Mega block was milestone for ASH-STP GC which has been achieved on 10 & 11-Oct moreover freight trains are regularly running so if CRS is planned on 23 & 24 including speed trial on 25-Oct then it would be awesome news for said section. Only worry is commencement coz in IR many sections been open after many months of successful CRS.
