I never expected such a reduced frieght traffic that too in BAY-TNGL section! Commonly there used to be a 5-6 rakes of Frieght everyday in TNGL but today no such energy of frieght was been seen in TNGL☹.
Only less frieght was there at TNGL.
One frieght came from HPT, but after that UBL WDG4D twins(its link) got detached and shunted. Probably it might have waited for electric loco for loco change.
Waited for electric loco to arrive with Frieght but no frieght train came from Ballari side.
Hence I have to wind up my Railfanning session. And just ended my session with UBL WDG4 12069.

The 127 trains is the number of trains halting in 1 week, not each day. If there are 6 different weekly trains running in the same slot, IRI counts them as 6 different trains instead of 1 train. So, it is a misleading number. On any given day of the week, the number of trains halting is much lesser.
VSKP urgently needs 3rd/4th lines till Gopalapatnam and some yard modifications to ensure that trains don't have to be held up at the outer due to on-going shunting operations.

MAS and HWH have more originating trains. Even then right VSKP has more passing trains I agree. But my point is the actual roadblock is non availability of additional line from Gopalapatnam. till then even if platforms available trains can't reach station. And halted trains will take more than 30-45mins to cross VSKP station which should be reduced to 20mins. Because railways is sighting this reason for diversion of trains.

There is no need of extra PF's at VSKP; Almost sometimes PF's are empty or occupied with some originating trains; mostly they used 1,2,3,4 PF's are upcoming and downing going trains and remaing 5,6 PF's are used for VZM side originating trains & 7,8 PF's are used for BZA side trains. The 8 PF's working very well so no need of extra PF's and already 6th outline is also constructing at New Coach Care Complex so no need of extra piltines at this time.
A big complex is needed at Gnanapuram side (at the place which you shared pics), it includes a more restaurants because the tastes of food near or surroundings of VSKP RS is not a good quality, needed shopping
malls for entertainment purpose; they may construct a rail museum in that place it will good; need a bus stand the present bus shelter is small; need a big waiting hall ; the main building in front side of RS is congested need a more facilities at PF-8 side.

Ok will agree with you incase train traffic increases in Visakhapatnam station.
What should Railway's do ??
Should all trains line up on Mainline.
No need of 3rd or 4th line.
The two lines goes
to CDO connects at Gopalapatnam it can be utilized as lines to both DVD & SCM.
