Vijayawada: The Vijayawada railway station, one of the busiest junctions, is all set to cross another milestone. The rail junction, which connects south to the west coast up to West Bengal, will get two more platforms taking the total number to twelve. Presently, the Vijayawada railway station has ten platforms on par with the Secunderabad railway station. Now, the Vijayawada station will have more platforms than Secunderabad. With this Vijayawada station will become the second busiest railway junction in the country after the Chatrapathi Sivaji station in Mumbai which has 18 platforms. ... more...
The station serves 1.4 lakh passengers daily with nearly 500 express, passenger and goods trains passing through the junction. The construction work for the two new platforms would begin soon, according to officials. The railways has initially sanctioned Rs 10 crore to establish the two new platforms. The officials have prepared plans to remove structures on platforms No 6 and 7. Currently, several offices, including chief ticket inspector office, Railway Protection Force and other commercial buildings are functioning from these two platforms. The offices would be shifted to another location soon. New platforms will distribute train arrivals and departures as well as passengers relieving pressure on the existing ones. Presently, several trains are being halted on outer limits of the railway station during nights due to non-availability of platforms. Sometimes, the trains are halted up to 15 minutes. With Amaravati capital taking shape, it is expected that the rush at the junction will increase manifold.

സ്വസ്ഥമായി ഇരിക്കാൻ ആരും റയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിൽ പോകാറില്ല. എങ്കിലും, ഇന്ത്യൻ റയിൽവേയുടെ കാരുണ്യം കൊണ്ടു പലപ്പോഴും പ്ലാറ്റ്ഫോമിലെ ബെഞ്ചിൽ കുത്തിപ്പിടിച്ചിരിക്കേണ്ട അവസ്ഥ ഉണ്ടാകാറുണ്ട്. എന്തെങ്കിലും കഴിക്കാൻ കൊള്ളാവുന്ന ഹോട്ടലിൽ പോകണമെന്നു കരുതിയാലും നടക്കാൻ ബുദ്ധിമുട്ടാണ്. ഏതു സമയത്തു വേണമെങ്കിലും ട്രെയിൻ വരാമെന്നതു കൊണ്ട് പ്ലാറ്റ്ഫോം വിട്ടൊരു പരിപാടിക്കും പലർക്കും ധൈര്യമുണ്ടാകാറില്ല. പെട്ടെന്നു കിട്ടുന്ന ചായയും വടയുമൊക്കെ കഴിച്ച് പ്ലാറ്റ്ഫോമിലെ തിരക്കിൽ ഇരിക്കുമ്പോൾ തോന്നാറില്ലേ, റയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിൽ ഒരു നല്ല ഹോട്ടൽ ഉണ്ടായിരുന്നെങ്കിലെന്ന്!...
At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...
The following changes are being introduced to keep the PNR Forum functioning.
1. A "bookmarklet" called "PNR Refresh" has been created. Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning.
2. When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official...
The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...
Starting Monday, we shall be starting the slow Test rollout of our new app - called RailFan.

There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum:
1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
This is an advance notice of a new feature that will be introduced within the next couple of days. The feature is called "Spottings".
1. Any time you see a train ANYWHERE - while railfanning, while travelling in a train, while visiting a station, seeing someone off, receiving someone, while your train...
