CR Pune Division is finding it very difficult to manage Pune station that it hardly pays any attention to 330 km Pune-Miraj-Kolhapur section that it acquired from SCR some years back. CR Pune Division concentrates only on PUNE Railway station and starts trains only from Pune towards North India. No trains are extended to Miraj Jn even years after Miraj junction was handed over to Pune division. Howrah Pune express, Lucknow Pune express, Bilaspur Pune express and Patna Pune express are still not extended to Miraj Jn. Indore Pune Express is also not extended to Miraj Jn. There is urgent need of creating a separate Miraj division which consists of Nira-Miraj-Kolhapur, Pandharpur-Miraj and Phaltan-Lonand sections.

Yesterday Mr. S K Sood of CR has visited Miraj Junction where Miraj Railway Kruti Samiti has demanded the Miraj Division. Application regarding the same has been handed over to him. He has asked his staff to immediately look at the demand. Seems there is great hope for people of South Maharashtra after creation of Miraj Railway Division.

Mr. Sood visited PUNE as well. Creation of new division is not so easy, many issues need to be address. At the most, he will instruct SM of MRJ to provide better facilities. Also he will instruct DRM PUNE to look after MRJ/KOP.

Sangli has got one Union Minister, Three State Cabinet Ministers and Speaker of Legistative Assembly. Still the demand of making Miraj junction as a separate railway division not been fulfilled. These ministers are doing what ?

Reason for not extending Pune trains to Miraj, can be the pressure and understanding between volvo bus operators and IR. Same happens in MAQ-SBC sector and CBE-SBC sector in South.

Please make it known to all that 'Consutructing Tunnel' or "Creating Tunnel' is disastrously implemented by "Contractors' by ingnoring 'Structural Vitality' of Mountains and plateau' and Soring example is "Konkan Tunnels' which are vulnerable to Heavy landslides during Rainy downpours ....
The key to Tunnelling is 'Coring' the Rocks .... wiht most advanced machines ... and NOT BLASTING away the hurdles to achieve the "Targets' for which Mr.Sreedhar is remembered till date....
Why the Khandala Tunnels have surviced the decades of their Creation Is because work was
done by drilling and mild blasing with Fully Supervised Technical Teams of British Engineers...
They Cared for the Land They Ruled, though they exploited Man of the land and that is bitter truth...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
