New/Special TrainsSWR/South Western -Nov 01 2016 (08:36) Welcome initiative by SWR
AAA 5 news posts
Thanks to the South Western Railway (SWR), the long-pending demand for introduction of an originating train from Vizag to Bengaluru was realised with the launch of the 06579 Yesvantapur-Visakhapatnam weekly special Tatkal express.
Though the East Coast Railway (ECoR) had failed to introduce a direct train to cater to the high demand for berths from Vizag to Bengaluru, it had taken over the special train, launched by the SWR in the past. After running it for sometime, it gave the most inconvenient timings, converted it into a Suvidha special with dynamic fare and finally did not renew it.

They do use it. I didn't ask for many trains to be run. But just one daily to KCG. Like a standard overnight train for that section, instead of a mix-up of bi-weeklies. Train on wednesday is missing currently.
Yes connection to new capital and commercial capital VSKP in the route u mentioned is needed. I don't know why SWR is not allowing Kondaveedu to be made daily?
Kondaveedu wont help pak-dmm section.
Daily as of now not possible
Hardly anyone in Rayalseema bothered for a new zone. Because they know better than to protest. The state split because coastal Andhra, Krishna, Godavari districts cornered all resources. Many in Rayalseema wanted 3 way split (after split was finalized), because they knew capital, revenue and other developments will all be cornered by those districts.
One can compare Uttarandhra and Rayalseema as being short changed by all attention and development of coastal districts.
No for HUP, ATP region I was saying. That DMM-BZA train has no UR coaches at all, so this will help to some extent.
