Kolhapur region(which include kolhapur satara sangli district also part of solapur district west of pandharpur ) is being constantly neglected. CR is no doubt the busiest zone of railways. But it can not provide sufficient attention to this region. For this zone handling Mumbai suburban itself is a big task it handles all needs of mumbai long distance trains also. Till nearly a decade ago Pune was also being neglected by CR for obious reasons(handling Mumbai itself is very big task) but as Pune has evolved in to a another metro in the state they can no more neglect it. Pune is also getting good share in form of new projects(e.g. pune nashik new line) new trains in railway budget. But Kolhapur region is nowhere in CR agenda. Unfornunately we dont have our own divisional headquarter(unlike solapur,bhusawal,nagpur) We dont have any mean by which we can put forward our demands. It...
is very very frustating forus who expect a better connectivity. New lines are out of question even if we get new train with great efforts they get diverted. Why CR is running this train(kop-hyd) is totally beyond logic. Obiously when mamata banargee first announced this train it was going to run via pvr-sur but as we dont have divional headquarters and hubli has it this train was diverted via hubli. We got train to varanasi(deekshaboomi) but it got diverted via nanded. These trains totally useless for us occupy our platforms during prime time. Railway give reason repeatedly that no new train can be started from kolhapur miraj because of unavaibality of plateform and time slot at the same time run these trains on our plateforms? Kolhapur region is third densly populated area after mumbai and pune in maharashtra and we get this type of treatment!! This is very very serious matter. But what to be done??? Friends any thoughts?

Nothing is going to happen. I have written many mails to MLA,MP, Railway ministry, no one is interested to even reply. So forget about this train. Today i have mailed to new Rail Minister, lets see if something happens. You guys also can drop mails or letters. Powerful leader from your region can get train, but they are least interested.

We have to learn from Marathwada people. Their success rate is very high in terms of getting their demands fulfilled. They have a established a system. Experts among st them every time suggest new trains new projects after detailed study well in advance. Which are generally accepted because there is no haphazardness.
Western Maharashtra should also have similar system which should include experts from railways, economical experts, MLAs, MPs, IAS officers.

मिरज - कोल्हापूर-सोलापूर एक्‍स्प्रेस दिवसा आणि हैदराबाद एक्‍स्प्रेस सोलापूरमार्गे सोडण्याचे आश्‍वासन रेल्वेचे पुणे विभागीय व्यवस्थापक सुमित शर्मा यांनी दिले. येत्या जुलैपासून या गाड्या धावू लागतील, असे त्यांनी सांगितले. कोल्हापूर जिल्ह्यातील स्थानकांच्या भेटीसाठी ते येथे आले असता मध्य रेल्वे प्रवासी सेनेने त्यांची भेट घेतली.
कोल्हापूर-सोलापूर एक्‍स्प्रेस सध्या रात्री धावते आणि हैदराबाद गाडी बेळगावमार्गे प्रवास करते. या दोहोंच्या बदलाबाबत गेल्या दीड वर्षापासून पाठपुरावा सुरू आहे. श्री. शर्मा यांनी माहिती दिली की, कोल्हापूर-सोलापूर-कोल्हापूर या एक्‍स्प्रेस गाड्या दिवसा सोडण्यास रेल्वे बोर्डाने मंजुरी दिली आहे. हैदराबाद गाडी पंढरपूर, सोलापूरमार्गे सोडण्यासही हिरवा कंदील दाखवण्यात आला आहे. येत्या जुलैपासून हा बदल अमलात येईल. मिरज स्थानकात कोच इंडिकेटर, सीसीटीव्ही कॅमेरे, पोएट मशीन आदींच्या कार्यवाहीसाठी आदेश दिल्याचे ते म्हणाले. संघटनेने सांगली, मिरज, कोल्हापूरदरम्यानच्या रेल्वेसंदर्भातील अन्य अनेक मागण्यांचे निवेदन व्यवस्थापकांना दिले.
स्वतंत्र मिरज डिव्हिजन, मिरज-पंढरपूर सुपरफास्टचे साध्या गाडीत रुपांतर, या मार्गावर दिवसा पॅसेंजर, मिरज ते तिरुपती नवी गाडी आदी मागण्या निवेदनात मांडण्यात आल्या आहेत. या वेळी प्रवासी सेनेचे अध्यक्ष किशोर भोरावत, सदस्य ज्ञानेश्‍वर पोतदार, संदीप शिंदे, चंद्रकांत मैगुरे, महेश म्हेत्रे, अभिजित मोहिते, तानाजी घार्गे, नंदकुमार गौड, अनिल रसाळ, पप्पू शिंदे, जयगौंड कोरे आदी उपस्थित होते.

Again the same question -
Hyderabad to Kolhapur =
This train travels for 23h 30m , 997 km , 34 halts & speed of 42 km/hr
We have train from Hyderabad to Solapur =
Sagar SF Express
Travel Time: 6h 5m 10 halts
Distance: 335 km
We have trains form Solapur to Kolhapur =
11051/Solapur-Kolhapur Express
Travel Time: 6h 45m 6 halts Distance: 316 km
So total journey is 12 hrs 50 m & distance is 651 Km.
But this train is taking 23h 30m - that means we we are wasting almost 11 hrs & ~350 Km ?
We can use the route
HYB Hyderabad
SUR Solapur
KWV Kurduvadi
PVR Pandharpur
MRJ Miraj Junction
KOP Shahu Maharaj Terminus, Kolhapur
There are many people from Kolhapur/Sangli/Miraj/Ichalkaranji who need to travel to Hyderabad regularly. The new train will save 12-13 hours of journey. We have only 1 travel running from Sangli to Hyderabad. Sangeeta. The new train will be really useful for old age people , ladies & children as it will be overnight & reach in 10 hours.
Please do the needful.
