Yes BSB train skips RDG.
When completed it will be alternate line to GTL from SBC.
This part of Ananthapur is the most backward.

Villagers were so excited that more than 100 were at station from different nearby villages. Many taking selfies. Some lying down on the cool mosaic floor of the waiting room and sleeping :)
Yesterday more than a thousand gathered to watch the train it seems. They thought I was another Hindi-officer from Hubli, like the ones who came yesterday.
1. These parts of KA and AP when you notice is like a jigsaw puzzle - Madakashira (surrounded on 3 sides by KA), Pavagada (surrounded by 3 sides by AP). Because of this weird geographical alignment not many buses ply due to permit problem, though this route is shortest between Bengaluru and Ballari. Trucks seem non-existent. Also parched land. Both state govts. give monthly subsistence - a few thousands rupees per family. Because of red tape drawing of water line too from Madhugiri is stuck.
In such situation they are all opting to travel to Chitradurga, Tumkur or Ananthapur, Hindupur for livelihood. This line will help them a lot in migration. So surely passengers will fill train.
2. Freight: The steel plants in around Ballari/Hosapete will benefit from this line. Also NMDC-Donimalai.

Not opening. Some error.
It's ok. Thanks.
Instead of unnamed road - can you please add Kalyandurga Ring Road.

One intermediate station between RDG and KYND. I couldn't ascertain the name as no official was present. Just villagers, some of whom gave the name Avuladatla, some said Ramanepalli. Not sure.
The next stations which will come up are Kambadur - Pavagada - Madakasira - Madhugiri - Koratagere. These I am sure as the land has been acquired and compensation is yet to reach many.

The station code of Kalyandurga too, I looked around but couldn't ascertain. I am going as per IRI's previous existing info.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...
