This train will be a great connectivity from East to West. It will serve Hyderabad, Bidar, Gulbarga, Solapur, Bijapur, Bagalkot districts to Goa. Presently these cities don't have any direct connectivity to Goa so this train will be more Impressive as Tourism aspect. Passengers will be directly connected to Goa which is presently a need. Also this train will serve Bidar- Bijapur - Bagalkot - Hubli as presently there is no train between Bidar - Hubli.
Please flag this train.

Yes agree with you. But the same article says that there is more demand of passenger trains on this route as it connects to Doodhsagar Water falls & Goa.

Oh Yeah. I have been living in Goa for the last 11 years and can vouch for this fact just from local newspaper articles/letters/new items. Demand is the reason for the doubling project. I am not sure whether the project has started or not.

Yours is an imaginary train, so dont go out of the way to get everything perfect. In real life TTs are made by IR using sophisticated software. This can never be matched by 'trial and error' work by us. Anyway, you want me to give feedback on your TT, here it is and it is Deja vous for both you and me: Your train leaves Londa at 135am and passes through Tenai Ghat at 154am. How will the 145 departures from LD get the green signal? At 145, your train is in between LD and Tinai Ghat. To repeat my favorite sentence, ' You cant have more than one train on one section' In technical language I think it is called a 'Block'. Here is a para from wikipedia
' Before allowing a train to enter a block, a signalman must be certain that it is not already occupied. When a train leaves a block, he must inform the signalman controlling entry to the block. Even if the signalman receives advice that the previous train has left a block, he is usually required to seek permission from the next signal box to admit the next train. When a train arrives at the end of a block section, before the signalman sends the message that the train has arrived, he must be able to see the end-of-train marker on the back of the last vehicle. This ensures that no part of the train has become detached and remains within the section. The end of train marker might be a coloured disc (usually red) by day or a coloured oil or electric lamp (again, usually red). If a train enters the next block before the signalman sees that the disc or lamp is missing, he asks the next signal box to stop the train and investigate.'
Further details can be found in: click here
I am not a technical person, I am just using 'common sense'
Here is another quote from the same wikipedia article: ''Trains cannot collide with each other if they are not permitted to occupy the same section of track at the same time, so railway lines are divided into sections known as blocks. In normal circumstances, only one train is permitted in each block at a time. This principle forms the basis of most railway safety systems.''
