Even a train like YPR-HRR Intercity is running with Waitlist tomorrow though it has horrible timings at Davangere, but SWR is not running a single special for the festival.

I had hoped that SWR would use Anga's old ICF rake for few specials but nothing.
I have seen that this train has good occupancy in UR coaches. If it is made daily and speeded up, with more UR coaches, then will be better. It has good timings while coming to YPR as an early morning train from the twin cities to the capital with decent speed.

Yes it needs to be speeded up especially YPR-Harihar, most dont prefer this train only because it reaches Davangere at 23:30. If it can be made to reach atleast by 22:30 definitely many would catch it. The whole problem for this train is Tumakuru-Arsikere single line section, sometimes it takes 3hrs to cover this 100Kms due to too many crossings.

After visiting Gangavathi station /blog/post/2369526, while returning to Ballari, I took these pics near the LC after Kudatini station.
As seen in the main post of Jan, it seems just that the poles have been erected near and after Kudatini station.
At Ballari Cantt. and Ballari Junction there were no signs of poles too.

Earlier, I noticed that even after Hosapete station towards Ballari, there were no signs of any electrification.

Y is the progress of Electrification too slow in this line ?? Is it due to lack of funds or are they waiting for completion of full Hosapete-GDG-UBL doubling ??

Re# 2132640-3            Tags   Past Edits
No fund allocation, I guess. The doubling is going on fast, as adequate funds have been allocated.

Ginigera - Raichur New Line.
New Station: Gangavathi.
A major milestone will be achieved by this year end when one of the biggest towns of Karnataka, which was hitherto not connected by rail
link, will be on the IR map :)
1. I visited Gangavathi yesterday to see the progress of the new station. This line's Ginigera - Chikkabenakal Section was inaugurated this year /blog/post/2217215.
2. From Chikkabenakal onwards track laying has been completed till the outskirts of Gangavathi about 2 Kms from the station.
3. Ground work, including the railway bridge over Gangavathi - Raichur highway, for the track laying is complete upto the station and also ballast and sleepers are ready too.
4. The station building is under construction. Just like other stations like Chikkabenakal /blog/post/2217215, this station will be multi-storied due to the elevated track section.
5. The foundation for the PFs are under construction can be seen, and whole line till Gangavathi will be ready in a few months. By this year end it, hopefully it will be inaugurated.
6. Further on, I learnt, the earth work and elevated track bed, RoBs, RuBs is almost completed upto some 2 Kms beyond Karatagi - the next major town, which is part of Gangavathi Taluk.
So that means its just some 18 Kms from Sindhanuru - the biggest town on the complete line. That would take another year, perhaps.
7. The entire line is slated for completion by 2020 (officially) - /blog/post/2251228.
All above info is based on what I could see and also glean from the locals.

Recently inaugurated BBS Humsafar arrived at KJM at 3:15 pm. All coaches were of NR except the front EOG and PC which were of WR and ER respectively. All coaches and EOG were 2016 made except PC which was 2005 made. The train was then attached to an EMD and left at 4 pm towards BYPL yard probably for water filling and some cleaning. They announced that it will depart at 4:45 pm, but at 4:30 pm it was still standing at BYPL mainline waiting to go to BYPL yard.
UBL original
cab EMD, which was in the adjacent line, with aqua blue livery looks matching to the Humsafar livery.
Also are pics of:
UBL old Logo. New logo you can see: /blog/post/2252581
RPM logo with a Red building (probably the historically significant RPM station) and a WAP7 depicted in the middle.
A visitor from ECR at BNC.
Newly POHed GR Power Car attached to Basava - probably from MYS Workshop to YPR.

Same loco, I guess.
The loco wasnt detached from the rake? Did it go to BYPL yard along with the rake? What was the link for 22834?
