Today I travelled from Ballari Cantonment Halt to Ballari Cantonment (Erstwhile Ballari Cantonment BG). Here are the points I observed.
I have numbered points as per photos below.
1) SB of Ballari Cantonment Halt
2) 2 platforms of Ballari Cantonment Halt
Ticket counter at Ballari Cantonment Halt
4) & 5) My ticket - Ticket is issued from Ballari Cantonment Halt to Kudatini (which is next station of Ballari Cantonment) deliberately as ticket issuing person told that ticket cannot be issued to Ballari Cantonment
6) Location of Ballari Cantonment Halt in google maps (Note: Ballari Cantonment Halt station is located opposite to Pracheen Shri Santoshi Mata Mandir)
7) Photo of Pracheen Shri Santoshi Mata Mandir which is located opposite to Ballari Cantonment Halt station
8) Fare list board at Ballari Cantonment Halt
9) Timings of trains halting at Ballari Cantonment Halt. Even though these are old timings, all these trains halt here with revised timings as informed by ticket issuing person
10) Even in google maps it is shown as all these trains halt at Ballari Cantonment Halt. In google maps Ballari Cantonment Halt is shown as Ballari Cantonment and Ballari Cantonment is shown as Ballari Cantonment BG (Old names of stations)
11) 56909 slip - KSR Bengaluru - Hosapete passenger arriving at Ballari Cantonment Halt
12) SB captured from train
13) Code of Ballari Cantonment Halt is shown as BYC in Southern Zone Time Table - 2017. When enquired about this ticket issuing person and other railway staff at Ballari Cantonment Halt & the person who showed green flag to 56909 at Ballari Cantonment confirmed that code for Ballari Cantonment Halt is BYC and 3 pairs of passenger trains (6 trains - which are shown in photos 9 & 10) halt at Ballari Cantonment Halt.
All photos are clicked by me.
I will update details of Ballari Cantonment (Erstwhile Ballari Cantonment BG) in my next blog very soon.

Out of 4 pairs of passenger trains, 3 pairs of passenger trains halt here. But it is not updated under this station. Check for arrivals & departures under BLCT.
