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.

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... more...
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.
