Travel Question
Oct 29 2016 (19:22)   58501/Visakhapatnam - Kirandul Passenger | BGHU/Borra Guhalu (1 PFs)

I have few queries regarding this train - I am traveling by car to Araku, but would like to experience the awesome tunnel section in this train and take some ~1 hr journey on this train. My queries are:
1. Where do maximum of the scenic route and tunnels lie on the path of this train - between SLPM/TXD and BGHU or between BGHU and Shimliguda. If I can get most of the tunnels between SLPM/TXD and BGHU, I would drive down to SLPM/TXD, board the train till BGHU and then come back and pick my car.
Does the train stop at TXD and will I get tickets there? How crowded will be the general/2S compartments on a Saturday? If yes which station should I prefer - SLPM or TXD?
Thanks !

U need to travel all the way from skota till araku in train to enjoy tunnels and valley. Most tunnels ate between skota and borra. But getting into train in skota is very difficult as it gets filled up fully at vskp itself and weekends its beyond reach. If u want to enjoy train journey then u have book in sleeper/general seating till araku/koraput so as to enjoy the beauty.

Thanks Deepak. Is it so crowded that we wont get standing space also? I mean if we can even squeeze in standing b/w tyada and borra it would be just 40 min but I should be getting tunnel numbers 10 - ~40 probably.
Actually we are a grp of 9-10, and since we have limited time, I was thinking if we even get some of the scenic spots in some subset of the train journey it would be great and better than experiencing nothing.

Happy Diwali All !

Tyda has some restrictions of halting now for security reasons and not sure whether they have suspended halt. You won't be able to enjoy much if u are not in window seat or sitting position. Doors have lot of demand then seats in general coaches.

Composite Coach 2A Section.
Berth 25,26,27
So there are atleast 7 berths more than the ICF 1A+2A Composite coach.
Anybody has the Diagramatic view of the berth distribution in LHB Composite coaches.

    -@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.
