When SWR completes the Kotturu-Hosapete gradient work; which of these trains should be re-routed thru Kotturu - Hosapete - Gadag - Vijayapura - Solapura - Daund; instead of UBL-BGM route.
Swarna Jayanthi Ex. (Overall decrease of some 70 Kms)0%0
Karnataka Sampark Kranthi - NZM (Overall decrease of some 70 Kms)92%12
Karnataka Sampark Kranthi - CDG (Overall decrease of some 70 Kms)0%0
Sharavathi Ex. (Increase of some 80 Kms)0%0
Bikaner Ex. (Almost same)0%0
Barmer AC Ex. (Almost same)8%1

No idea!!! Probably by next March. Or only with political pressure. All politicians seem busy with black money work :)

Karnataka Samparkkranti should run 3 days via Hubli-Belgaum, 3 days via Kotturu-Hospet-Gadag-Bagalkot-Vijayapura-solapur, and 3 days via Guntakal-Raichur-Yadgir-Gulbarga-Solapur (as currently KSK runs for 9 days in a week).. then the name of Sampark kranti will be truly justified...

Yes. AP top politicians in 2004 had pulled strings when protest started about the fact that it ran in AP than KA. Approaching elections, made then govt. acquiesce.
Subsequently it was RM Bansal who introduced 2 more to CDG via UBL. Our MPs lack interest or heft to re-route it. More so the migrants from North who use it the most will make sure it runs in present shortest route.

KA is cursed because its capital is geographically in a horrible position that it helps all except the state to which it belongs.

But I have hopes. With approaching Punjab elections and new pitline at Bidar getting ready, a train to ASR/CDG may come to Bidar as it a major pilgrim center to sikhs. Their pilgrimage starts at NED and then come to Bidar then go to HYB to return to Punjab. Hope a new train is introduced from Bidar thru Akola-BSL-ET-NDLS to Punjab.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
