I am trying to make a compilation of the most strategically located Indian railway stations. Can include all railway stations through a city. Here strategic means in context of Indian railways only not in terms of security. If this stations have operational failures, a huge amount of IR will be crippled.
Necessary conditions for stations to be a part of this list.
1. Must affect at least two trunk routes
2.
...
more...
Not only passenger but freight traffic also will be crippled if station failure occurs.
3. Very few alternatives present
4. My opinion only, you are free to disagree and suggest more stations with valid reasons.

My list so far and reasons given below are
1 ITARSI (Failure will lead to complete paralysis of Grand Trunk Line and Howrah Prayagraj Mumbai ine)
Alternatives :-
BINA-KMZ-USP-R-G-NGP (For Grand Trunk)
NDLS-MTJ-KOTA-ST-BSL-WR (For Grand Trunk)
JBP-NIR-G-NGP (For HWH-PRYJ)
KTE-USP-R-NGP (For HWH-PRYJ)
HWH-NGP-CSTM line
CONCLUSION :- FAILURE WILL CAUSE CATASTROPHIC DISRUPTION OF RAILWAY TRAFFIC
2. DEEN DAYAL UPADHAY NAGAR (Complete failure of HWH-NDLS, HWH-PRYJ and NJP-NDLS line)
Alternatives :-
BJU-HJP-CPR-BSB-PRYJ/LKO (Impractical in real life as CPR-BSB section won't be able to take the load that DDU takes. May work out for NJP side train but HWH side impractical)
HWH-DHN-PTRU-CPU-CAR-PRYJ (Slow and over saturated route, impractical for NJP side trains.
HWH-ADRA/TATA-BRKA-CPU-CAR-PRYJ (Possible for trains from BBS side)
CONCLUSION :- FAILURE WILL CAUSE TOTAL COLLAPSE OF RAILWAY TRAFFIC. ENTIRE EAST INDIA WILL BE CUT OFF
3. PRAYAGRAJ (JN & CHEOKI) (Complete paralysis of HWH-PRYJ-CSTM line and Major disruption in HWH-NDLS line)
Alternatives :-
DDU-BSB-LKO-CNB/MB (For HWH NDLS line, slow and incompetent route. Trains will be massively delayed)
DDU-CAR-SGRL-KTES-JBP-ET (Practically not viable, slow, single and already oversaturated line. Incapable of handling PRYJ's load)
CNB-JHS-BPL-ET line (Longer and congested route but possible)
CONCLUSION :- FAILURE WILL CAUSE SERIOUS DISRUPTION OF RAILWAY TRAFFIC.
4. VIJAYAWADA (All stations) (Catastrophic failure of HWH-MAS, GT route)
Alternatives :-
HWH-MAS (No viable alternative )
GT route (Diversion via KZJ-SC-DHNE-GTL/GY)
CONCLUSION :- TOTAL COLLAPSE OF HWH-MAS ROUTE. GT ROUTE TRAFFIC PARTIAL DIVERSION POSSIBLE VIA SC
5. GUNTAKAL (Total collapse of MAS-CSTM, MAS-UBL route, partial failure of SBC-CSTM/UBL)
MAS-CSTM/UBL (No viable alternative at all without massive diversion)
For SBC routes diversions possible.
CONCLUSION :- SERIOUS BREAKDOWN OF MAS/SBC-CSTM ROUTE
6. BHUSAVAL (Serious Failure of HWH-PRYJ-CSTM and HWH-NGP-CSTM route and NGP/ET-BSL-NDB-ST route)
Alternatives :-
KTE-BINA-BPL-UJN-RTM-BRC-MMCT (For HWH-PRYJ-CSTM route)
BSP-KTE-BINA-BPL-RTM-BRC-MMCT (For HWH-NGP-CSTM route)
KNW/NGP-ET-BPL-UJN-RTM-BRC-MMCT(For trains coming from opposite directions)
CONCLUSION :- MAJOR FAILURE OF NGP-CSTM,HWH-CSTM ROUTES. DIVERSION AVAILABLE BUT PRACTICALLY UNVIABLE

1. Two or more trunk routes directly affected
2. Diversions not easily feasible.
3. Failure should cause major problems in IR
4. Then you must give proper reason for rach of them bro.

Modification needed in alternative of DDU
Another alternative can be via GKP MB as well, i.e. via PPTA HJP SV GKP MB (either via STP or via LKO)

DDU ka competition hai hi nahi lekin jo lines par traffic nahi hai, jaise RXL STF SMI side, MFP NKE line (less traffic) unpar freight de sakta hai. CPR THE GKP Loop par bhi de sakta hai kyonki traffic kam hai

Sir.. SMB better hai abhi wale 3E LHB se.. in fact SMB wale ko sone me problem nahin hoti hai lekin SMB wale coach me SUB wale ki seat itni height par hoti hai ki aap theek se na so payenge na baith payenge. karwat badalna bhi mushkil hota hai SUB me. seat wahan par lagaye hote hain jahan coach ka curve start hota hai to aap wall side nahi jaa sakte..
