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 1, 3 : Distant view of the lonely PF station.
Pic 2 : Goods EMD which has hauled a Ballast train, parked on the mainline.
Pic 4, 5: The loco is chocked.
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 17: Towards Hireshellikeri.
Pic 18: PF line joining mainline.
Pic 19: Lonely wagon at the end of the line.
Pic 20, 21: End of line towards Kudachi.
Pic 22: Land leveling towards Kudachi.
Pic 23: Another newly painted RuB, while coming towards Hireshellikeri.
Station Info:
Name: Khajjidoni.
No. of PFs: 1 and one Mainline.
Division: UBL.
Zone: SWR.
Address: Khajjidoni village, Bagalkot Taluk, Bagalkot District, Karnataka - 587204.
Line Info:
1. Some 30 Kms of the line is completed from Bagalkot.
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.
5. As always in a new line, no signals or automatic track switching. Just one train system and manual switching of tracks.
6. Further land levelling is in progress.
The stations list from Bagalkot side.
1. Sulikeri.
2. Kerakalamatti.
3. Hireshellikeri.
4. Khajjidoni.
1. The above info is whatever I could gather and assess to the best of my ability.
2. Can someone type Hindi name TL for this station? I am unable to type address TL, till the Hindi name is filled. I would like to do address TL :)

I talked about pitlines as addition of new trains will become difficult in the later stages once these new lines will be done.
Also the SUR-DWR pass which was announced to be run till Ambewadi is still not extended and no news about that line at all.

Bro you know When Bellary-GDG-UBL gauage Conersion happen and UBL division take more profit from this Freight Section and when comes to give service for passengers of this section they think and do double standards. They ready to Run UBL-Kocuveli Sf through DVG-Tumkur route & Also Hubli Chennail trains via same route and we from long time requesting them for a train to chennai and Mumbai on BAY-GDG-BJP section & also Hubli Chennai trains can be run via BAY-GTL but they not considering our requests..Regarding New SF on the First day of hassan line which is Political Effect hassan & Shivamogga can get trains due Local Strong leaders our side leaders dont at all ask about us. one person Mr Joshi some times he demand for us but all the time to Hubli Ankola line and Hubli Bangalore line trains..BAY & BJP are Border Cities so not Interested or for what...
reason having been neglected i dont know.

Even trains like Solapur UBL Intercity EXP can be Changed to SUR-BAY intercity simply its no use by when it Extended upto UBL and also SUR-GDG passenger can be Extended upto HPT/BAY which will be usefull for this region ppl to go towards Badami,BJP,SUR.During Tenure Of Mr Sadanand Gowda as RM he Said their will be Pilgrimage Circut Train for Pandarpur From Gadag But until now no train but Yesvantpur-Pandarpur Train they started via BGM-MRJ i think they clame now the same train what we said in budget.but its running withtout Connection to GDG-BJP stations.

Yes you are Right Pit Lines are necessary now For Efficient Run of more no of trains & Also SWR need Electric Loco Shed May be @ KJM/UBL or somewhere @ new place BJP/GDG as already some regions of the Zone going into Traction process.Even I heard Long Back Their was proposal From railways for Gadag Loco Shed but it Turned to Gooty that time due to some issues which are not known to public yet.

4months gone, still no trains. Its really damn difficult to run some new trains on this line or Ginigera-Chikkabenekal/Gangavathi unless pitlines come up at places other than UBL. AFAIK UBL pitlines are also full, dont know how they will come up with new passenger trains.
