Bagalkot - Kudachi new Line.
New Station: Khajjidoni.
When one sees the the rail map of Karnataka sans the red lines, it shows enormous gaps. So under developed is Karnataka in terms of
rail network.
Slowly some progress is going on. One such demand and wait for decades for connectivity is in North Karnataka, Bagalkot district.
The Bagalkot-Kudachi line will connect the Gadag-Solapur line to Hubballi-Miraj line.
Having anticipated for some news about the line progress in media and also from others, I just couldn't hold back my curiosity and eagerness to know the line progress. So on Monday evening, I just set off on a 1000+ Kms sojourn to see first-hand what progress the line has made.
Hope other railfans waiting for this info are enthused :)
