The opening of this station keeps postponing. By Feb end or Mar beginning code of conduct will come into force, by then atleast they should do.
Only the Pass will be extended they say. So nothing of great benefit. People travelling by the local bus to CKBK will get to board the same train at the new station.

I had a great conversation with Solapur C&W on last week.
Some of the questions and there answers given by them posting for IRI railfans.
1. Why Wadshinge to Bhalawani doubling not achieved it's deadline.
Major yard remodeling is required at Kurduwadi Junction. Word is stopped at Kurduwadi outer from both end due to low capacity of Platform 1 & 2. So we are building new platform aside of existing Platform 1 which will accommodate 24 coaches UP side train.
2. What is the tentative date of commissioning this sterch.
- By the end of year new platform will be ready, as of now we don't have any date.
3. What about Solapur - Gulbarga section.
- Gulbarga to Sawalagi and Kulali to Boroti is expected to commission soon.
4. When Siddheshwar & Udyan get Utkrisht coaches.
- Makeover of existing coaches to Utkrisht is in progress. We are converting 96 coaches (4 rakes) to Utkrisht.
5. Why it is taking so much time.
- As we are doing this on open line with limited space and limited manpower it is taking time. Instead of here, if CR done this conversion at Parel Workshop or any other workshop where all the facilities are available and employees are used too for such work then we could received our rakes till now.
6. Why Hutatma Express is not getting LHB coaches?
- Decision is still pending with CR HQ. They have to allocate coaches to SUR Div.

Even I hear that Gulbarga-Sawalgi and Boroti-Kulali will be commissioned by Feb/March this year... Once its done between Solapur-Gulbarga only about 26Kms stretch will remain single line which may happen in financial year 2019-20...

Yes, now CR will be starting electrification work on existing lines.
There is a clear guideline received to complete Bhigwan - Gulbarga electrification within next 36 months even though doubling not complete.
So soon we can see installing poles on the route.

In March 2019 no CRS inspection between wadhshinge and Bhalwani?
And yard remodeling work still is pending?

If this is true...
If Wadshinge Bhalawani doubling target is pushed because of platform at Kurduwadi, were concerned officials sleeping?
Why they coukd not get this work done on priority knowing it may affect doubling?
How many trains run with 24 coaches? How these trains are currently handled at KWV, the same arrangement can be continued till new PF is created. But why
delay doubling?

- From what you have seen. do you think 39 Kms that they said will be commissioned by March?
- Is SUR capable of handling 24 coach train? That HAS train is now 23 only.
Also my wish is that SUR-UBL ICE can be extended to YPR with another rake, so that SUR-GDG line gets a day time train to YPR. But for that political pressure is needed.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
