Bagalkot - Kudachi new Line.
New Station: Khajjidoni.
When one sees the the rail map of Karnataka sans the red lines, it shows enormous gaps. So under developed is Karnataka in terms of
rail network.
Slowly some progress is going on. One such demand and wait for decades for connectivity is in North Karnataka, Bagalkot district.
The Bagalkot-Kudachi line will connect the Gadag-Solapur line to Hubballi-Miraj line.
Having anticipated for some news about the line progress in media and also from others, I just couldn't hold back my curiosity and eagerness to know the line progress. So on Monday evening, I just set off on a 1000+ Kms sojourn to see first-hand what progress the line has made.
Hope other railfans waiting for this info are enthused :)

Pic 6, 7: Distance marker.
Pic 8: Tipper gets loaded from ballast train.
Pic 9, 10: Lonely tree and flower patch amidst barren land seen from station.
Pic 11: Small station building.
Pic 12-16: 2 RuBs located under the PF. This is the 2nd time I am noticing RuB under PF. The other instance was in Yediyuru - /blog/post/2123749. But here there are 2 RuBs underneath.

Pic 18: PF line joining mainline.

Pic 20, 21: End of line towards Kudachi.
Pic 22: Land leveling towards Kudachi.
Pic 23: Another newly painted RuB, while coming towards Hireshellikeri.

Name: Khajjidoni.
No. of PFs: 1 and one Mainline.
Division: UBL.
Zone: SWR.
Address: Khajjidoni village, Bagalkot Taluk, Bagalkot District, Karnataka - 587204.
Line Info:

2. Final Ballast packing has started at Sulikeri end and will complete till here in another week or 10 days.
3. Painting of station has completed at Sulikeri. Other 2 stations and this stations' will be done soon. RuBs and the height barriers were painted last week.
4. Tiling - the jigsaw type tiles work is completed partially and will be done soon.

The stations list from Bagalkot side.

Something I learnt yesterday. The rails seen on the slope are used for laying rails.
First the track bed is readied, some ballast is spread and these "short" rails are fitted to the sleeper. And then the track machine comes using these rails to bring the long rails and they replace these rails and then the long rails are welded. These short ones are next used where new track is to be laid.
