A Big and Busiest Junction Under SCR Zone "Vijayawada Junction" didn't have Bye-pass Line till last year 2016.Especially the Trains Coming From Visakhapatnam/Howrah/Bhubaneshwar/Guwahati/Sambalp ur/Kakinada/Machilipatnam/Narasapur going towards Hyderabad Via Kazipet route should be LocoReversed.Still Now the same Process has been repeating for these trains at Vijayawada Junction.The Trains Which are Coming from Kazipet Direction and Going towards Visakhapatnam direction which are getting Locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction are:-
I)Godavari S/F Express (12727/28) HYB-VSKP-HYB Daily Up and Down
II)Gowthami S/F Express (12737/38) SC-COA-SC Daily UP and Down
Express (18646/45)HYB-HWH-HYB Daily Up and Down
IV)Konark Express (11019/20) CSTM-BBS-CSTM Daily Up and Down
V)LTT Express (18519/20) VSKP-LTT-VSKP Daily Up and Down
VI)Machilipatnam S/F Express(12749/50) SC-MTM-SC Daily Up and Down
VII)GareebRath S/F Express (12739/40) SC-VSKP-SC Daily Up and Down
VIII)Narasapur Express(17213/14) NSL-NS-NSL (Except 2 days in a week) Up and Down
IX)AP A.C S/F Express(22416/15) NDLS-VSKP-NDLS Daily Up and Down
X)Swarnajayanthi S/F Express(12803/04) NZM-VSKP-NZM (Bi-weekly) Up and Down
XI)Link S/F Express(12861/62) NZM-VSKP-NZM Daily Up and Down
XII)Cocanada A.C S/F Express (12775/76) (CCT-SC-CCT) Up and Down (Tri-Weekly) Up and Down
XIII)Shirdi Express (17206/05) (COA-SNSI-COA) Up and Down Tri-Weekly
XIV)Dwaraka Express(18401/02) (PURI-OKHA-PURI) Up and Down Weekly
XV)Gandhidhaam Express(18501/02) (VSKP-GIMB-VSKP) Up and Down Weekly
XVI)Visakhapatnam A.C SuperFast Express (VSKP-SC-VSKP) (12783/84) Up and Down Weekly
XVII)Duronto A.C SuperFast Express (VSKP-SC-VSKP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (22203/04)
XVIII)Nagawali S/F Express (SBP-NED-SBP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (12755/56)
XIX)Nanded S/F Express (VSKP-NED-VSKP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (12753/54)
XX)Shalimar A.C SuperFast Express (SHM-SC-SHM) Up and Down Weekly (12773/74)
XXI)Shalimar S/F Express (SHM-SC-SHM) Up and Down Weekly (22849/50)
XXII)Guwahati S/F Express (GHY-SC-GHY) Up and Down Weekly (12513/14)
XXIII)Tatanagar Express (TATA-YPR-TATA) Up and Down Weekly (18111/12)
In this way daily 9 Express/Superfast Express should be locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction in both directions and Remaining 14 Weekly/Bi-Weekly/Tri-Weekly Express/SuperFast/A.C Expresses should also be locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction
How long this locoreversal Problem continues at Vijayawada Junction?The better solution for this is to Construct " Vijayawada North Railway station" after Kondapalli with 4 platforms to avoid loco reverse problem.
Earlier the same situation was repeated at Kazipet Junction and Wardha Junction.Later on those halts were replaced by warangal and sevagram.Now we hope for Vijayawada Junction also

From Hubballi to Nagapur there are no direct trains,They should have introduced this train Via this route Hubballi-Gadag-Koppal-Hosapete-Toranagallu-Ballari -Guntakal-Mantralayam Road-Raichur-Gadwal-Mahaboobnagar-Kacheguda-Malkaj giri-Kazipet-Peddapalli-Balharshah-Sewagram-Nagapu r-Gondia-Balaghat-Nainpur-Jabalpur-Katni-Satna-All ahabad-Gyanpur Road.
All most the Gauge Conversion works from meter gauge to broad guage have been compleleted in both Balaghat-Nainpur Section and Nainpur-Jabalpur section.This would be the shortest route for all the south people going to Allahabad,Varanasi and Gaya on pilgrimage.
One more shortcut route for all the south people going to Allahabad,Varanasi,Gaya,Patna etc.., without touching Nagapur city the route is as follows Balharshah-Nagbhir-Gondia-Balaghat-Nainpur-Jabalpu
r.This route reduces additional distance of 100kms when compared to Balharshah-Sewagram-Nagapur-Gondia-Balaghat-Nainpu r-Jabalpur.

GTL-Wadi stations have MYS-BSB exp, y should this train also run in that same route, also places like SC, KZJ have Danapur exp. This is better route, places like Bagalkote, Vijayapura have no proper connectivity to other places. Also it has got good timings for UBL, GDG, Bagalkote, BJP to MMR.

And Mangaluru Junction which is under SR Zone of Palakkad Division,should be Merged under SWR Zone under Mysuru Division which will benefit Mangaloreans.As Mangalore is very close to Kerala state,Even if they merge under Malabar Railway Zone which is a proposed Zone of Kerala state will not affect Mangalore people.If Mangalore is Merged Under Proposed Malabar Railway Zone.Mangalore may become a separate division under Malabar railway Zone constituting Kasargod,Kannur , Kozhikode and Malappuram districts under this division and Shoranur-Nilambur Section and Dindigul-Palakkad-Shoranur-Thrissur-Aluva will be under Palakkad Division and Ernakulam-kottayam-Kayamkulam section and Ernakulam-Alapuzzha-Kayamkulam section and Kollam junction and Tiruvananthapuram station should be under Tiruvananthapuram division only and Nagarcoil and Kanyakumari Districts of Tamilanadu state will also be a part under Tiruvananthapuram Division of Proposed Malabar Railway Zone ,But the Zonal Head Quarters of Proposed Malabar Railway Zone should be located at "Ernakulam South Junction Only".In this way no one will...
be dominated.Every one will get priority.
For Example East Coast Railway Zone Head Quarter is situated at Bhubaneshwar the capital city of Odisha state.But Bhubaneshwar is under Khurda Road Railway Division of ECOR Zone.And East Coast Railway Zone is small Railway Zone with 3 divisions only.Then what is the problem in creating in new Proposed "Malabar Railway Zone " for Kerala state?
Suppose If you take SECR Zone.This Zone is Created After the Formation of Chattisgarh state in the year 2003,with Zonal Head Quarters located at Bilaspur.But the Capital city of Chattisgarh State is Raipur.In the same manner for the proposed Malabar Railway Zone for Kerala state,The Zonal HQ should be located at Ernakulam South Junction.
Such a Small state Goa got Railway Zone named it as " Konkan Railway" including with Konkan Region of Maharastra and a Parts of Karnataka state.HQ located at "Navi Mumbai".
Kerala the eldest state of India was formed on November 1st 1956 along with the south states of Karnataka and Former Undivided AP.Still Kerala is under SR Zone for 61 years time period.And Moreover Kerala is the country's highest literate state.
The states which were formed recently 15years ago like Chattisgarh got a separate Railway Zone with 3 Railway divisions and Even the New Divided AP state is also demanding for separate Railway Zone.
Then Why can't Keralites demand for a separate Railway Zone?The Drawback in Kerala state is that there are no strong political leaders and no Cabinette Ministers hailing from this state.That's the Reason why kerala is given less priority in case of Railways and in certain cases.
Let us Hope for a new Zone for Kerala State.

Very nicely said sir.
Kerala trains get old coaches from SR which is basically a TN zone.
Look at Palakkad-Pollachi line - No regular trains at all, since more than a year after inauguration. Few special passengers too cancelled.
Almost all LHB rakes for TN.
Electric Loco Shed. But TN has 3.
So many EMUs to Chennai. Hardly any MEMUs to KL.
Kerala generates a lot of income both in passenger traffic and also freight from Cochin Port.
Look at the many trains from TVC have to go to MAS and then go to BZA rather than using the AJJ-RU route.
Why no other Kerala member has not asked this I wonder?

100% agree.
Sr completely ignore kerala.
A simple recent eg. A bus strike was called by TN operators
SR quickly(1 day before strike itself) announced 6 special trains.
Kerala had a lot and lot
of strike(may be the most in india:p) but not a single time they run special in kerala during that period.
3 E loco shed in TN ,for kerala a big Zero.Tvc division uses old terrible coaches which already mas division used and dumped to TVC.

According to the sources before Elections in AP and Telangana in 2019,AP Will get a New Railway Zone naming it as "SouthEastCoastRailway" with Visakhapatnam as Zonal HeadQuarters by merging Vijayawada,Guntakal and Guntur Divisions of SCR and Waltair division of ECOR Zone with 3 AP districts which are now Srikakulam,Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam under Waltair division.So Finally AP state will be full pledgedly under SECOR Zone.
And in Telangana New Division "Kazipet" Will be Created under SCR Zone by merging the stations on KZJ-PDPL-BPQ stretch till Manikgarh it will be under Kazipet division and KZJ-DKJ-MUGR stretch also it will be under Kazipet division and DKJ-KMT-MDR stretch will be under newly created Kazipet division.
if AP gets Railway Zone or Not,Kazipet will become as New Division under SCR Zone,Because there is a lot of demand from the Railway officials and Public for the creation of Kazipet division.
Guntur and Vijayawada are Just 31kms far away from each other,With in 31kms distance they created 2 divisions,Secunderabad and Kazipet are 132kms far away from each other,Why can't our Kazipet Junction should be formed as a new division?SC-KZJ distance is 100kms more than that of BZA-GNT distance.And Moreover Kazipet Junction is Important Junction under SCR Zone Even When Compared to Guntur Junction.But Kazipet didn't get any priority because of United AP CM's and Ministers.Our Kazipet Junction is the Backbone for whole South India to go to New Delhi.What Characteristic feature does Guntur Junction possess when compared with Kazipet Junction.
How SCR can control the operations till Balharshah,Madhira and Manuguru?The only solution for this problem is a new division Kazipet should be created.
There are some Rumours that the Newly Opened Peddapalli-Nizamabad Railway section will be a part of Hyderabad Divsion.Excluding Peddapalli Junction Remaining all other Railway stations on this section will go under Hyderabad Division.As of now from Peddapalli to Mamidipalli all are under Secunderabad Divisoion.The reason is that the Vicinity of Hyderabad Divison is less when compared to Secunderabd Divison.and Moreover Hyderabad Division is Fully Single Line Diesel Engine Route only, if you see either SC-NZB section and SC-KRNT section are Fully Single Line and Diesel Engine operated sections and Even the Newly Constructing Kothapalli to Manoharabad Railway Section will also be a part Hyderabad Railway Division only.
But the thing is that if Kazipet Division is Created, Even the stations on Peddapalli-Nizamabad Railway section which are under Secunderabad Division may be merged under Kazipet Division.Let us see What will Happen.
When Mallikarjuna Kharge was the Railway Minister Under UPA tenure,He proposed for the creation of Separate Railway Division of Gulbarga Under SCR Zone as of Now Gulbarga is under CR Zone and Solapur Division.With the completion of Bidar-Gulbarga 110kms New railway Line along with Raichur junction and Yadgir all the 4 North Karnataka districts which were under Hyderabad Presidency During Nizam's Rule will be now full pledgedly be a part of SCR Zone under Gulbarga Railway Division.Let us see how the Railways will decide about this
and The Marathwada Districts of Hyderabad Presidency which are now in Maharastra state like Nanded,Parbhani,Latur,Hingoli,Jalna,Aurangabad and Beed are under a part of SCR Zone only,Except Osmanabad.
So Finally SCR Zone will be Fully Reserved only for Hyderabad Presidency districts only . As of Now Telangana,North Karnataka and Marathwada Districts of Maharastra state which were under Nizam's Rule under Hyderabad Presidency.
AP should get their New Railway Zone,Separating From SCR Zone.
So Finally In Near Future SCR Zone will be having 5 Divisions Namely Secunderabad,Hyderabad,Kazipet,Nanded and Gulbarga.Kazipet and Gulbarga will be New divisions under SCR Zone
