There are two railway stations having name "Sabarmati" near Ahmedabad. Some trains passing by one station while some trains passing by second station. A layman passenger is always confused with the point in mind that - From which "Sabarmati" station a train will arrive / depart, because both are now broad gauge station. Earlier second Sabarmati station(which is near Dharmnagar area) was meter gauge type. Authority need to differentiate both the station by giving diff. name e.g. Sabarmati - A and Sabarmati - B or any other relevant names. So that confusion can not be arise at all in common passanger's mind. Even railway employee / personnel dont know i mean clear about this matter. Regards.

Its not so difficult because mail express/passenger towards Viramgam/Bhuj/Rajkot always arrive on Sabarmati station that is on west side.
Also electric trains/MEMU going towards Gandhinagar Capital also arrive on this side.
Passenger/Mail-Exp./DEMU towards Mahesana/Abu Road goes from the Dharmnagar area side platform which is on far east side behind the yard..

Dear Jay Shah,
Thanks for your opinion. You know or have knowledge of this. What about a common passenger ? Suppose, if I wish to travel to Anand by MEMU train coming from Gandhingar in the morning around 08:00 to 08:30 to Sabarmati. To which station I should go ? Dharmnagar side or Sabarmati Central Jail side ? This particular point should not arise to a starnger, that i mean. Both the station should have unique name, so ambiguity will never arise. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge / information.

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@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,...
