This forum is on hosapete - kotturu (hpt-kty) line of swr ..wic is operating only for freight train not opened for passenger train due to gradient constient ..last month GM of SWR said work is going on will b completed within 5 months & it ll b open for passenger by next march .. so i decided to check on going work of this line wic is just half km away from my house..
length of hpt - kty line is (0.0- 70.0 km) ..mainly gradient constient problem lies btn vyasanakere st to gunda rd st (10.0km-19.5km)
where i started my journey near t.b dam st
pic2,3,4,5: T.B dam st wic just 5km away frm main hpt jn
i asked station master Mr Rajesh about this work & he said all work up to this st frm hpt st is completed ..he said one imprt thing that their is proposal form railway board to close the T.B DAM st ,if passenger train not run in next few months
pic 6:shows minor work @ t.b dam also u can see bridge of NH13
pic7: straight track line on mountain ever elevation will begins
pic 8: imp one u can see their is a rly crossing pt below this NH13 tunnel passes ..
pic 9: diagram of rly crossing
pic 10: track lies above the tunnel it has come down by 6 ft to solve this first gradient constient but their is objection by NHAI stated that if track comes down by 6ft it may damage tunnel hence work is stopped here
pic 11 : shows Reserve tungabhadra dam water, NH13 road connecting solapur - magaluru & beside hpt-kty line
pic 12: where iron ore material gets loaded in train ..
pic 13&14 : vyasanakere st
the main problem starts from this st to gunda jn however i could not able to travel on this track becz station master warned me not walk along track due to huge thick forest & presences wild animal like cheetah ther so i stop & walked along rd reach M.M halli (22.2km)
pic 15&16: M.M halli st this st is like cremation ground no one is their here not even station master
pic 17&18 : M.M halli old office & old closed ticket counter
pic 19 : another rly crossing @ m.m halli but no gates placed to stop vehicles becz no train passes here not even freight trains
next i traveled towards gunda jn
pic 20,21&22: gunda jn st here also same thing as M.M halli st no station master ..station has to be get reconstructed or re innovated
pic 23: pt where left side track takes swamy halli route & right side one towards kottur
final pic 24: @ gunda st work
conclusion : main gradient work going btn vyasanakere& gunda jn also singal installation & other work even if workk completes by next march .. but still reinnoviation of stations work of M.M halli & gunda jn need to start ..i hope they do on time

Thanks for the initiative Deepak. This shows ur keen on railways. Nice pics and great effort. I have a question here. Why was this gradient not identified in the initial stage of laying the track? Was there any lobby from others with Railways?

I'm happy to share that during my North Karnataka Trip I found that most of the stations of SWR are very clean and neat.
It's very good initiative by SWR Hubali Division to maintain the stations, I never seen such cleanliness in Toilets, Waiting Room, Platforms and Outside of station also.
e.g. Gadag, Badami, Hospet etc.

Re# 2197137-27            Tags   Past Edits
probably not.
human ski, when dry, has resistance in the range of 100 kilo ohms, while steel has a resistivity of 0.1 millionth of a ohm. the resistivity of human skin, when dry is almost 10 order of magnitude greater than steel and the current will prefer a path through steel rather than human, even if you touch that particular steel. Its only if the wire directly falls on you that you'll be in extremely high danger as in that case your body will form a series connection with the metallic body of train and thus current will have to flow through you.

In the same reply /blog/post/2131747 I have also said 'maybe' there are some wires where the work is left.
The reason I said "Yes" in the beginning was because that was the info that I got from the people when I visited Kotturu station - that there are no problems with wires.
They also said that some construction work of intermediate
stations remains, which turned out to be correct as per your reply -23 here.
If you see my posts on new stations - /blog/post/2143892, /blog/post/2131671, /blog/post/2115088, /blog/post/2123749, /blog/post/2152736, /blog/post/2152698, /blog/post/2094512 - I have tried my best to inform whatever info I gathered at that place.
I use expressions like "From what I could gather", "likely", "Hope it is informative" to clearly say that this is the information I could gather and never have I said that it is the final and official word.
There are members of this site who would find my posts useful - they would rate, appreciate, and some thank for going such distance for gathering info.
But I am also aware that there are members who will surely comeback to point mistakes, challenge that the info is wrong. Hence I use the above mentioned expressions.
But in Kotturu post, I made the mistake of not using any caveat, which now has been corrected.

nice pictures and updates sir.
has signals been installed along this 108kms sir?
also if track switching is completed, the swr can call for CRS inspection for the completed stretches.
