Dhulghat Spiral
Dhulghat Spiral is located in Amravati district in state of Maharashtra in India. It is a unique spiral located on Akola-Khandwa metre gauge section of South Central Railway of India.
It is also called 'Char Cha Akda' in Marathi and 'Char Ka Aankda' in Hindi, both meaning 'Digit of Four' due to its shape similar to that of '4' in Devnagari script.

The British were idiots regarding laying Indore Khandwa MG Railway line. They could have easily made it a BG line following the same procedure used for laying railway line at Budhni Ghats. Wonder why they didn't do so & let Rajputana-Malwa Railways built a MG line in Choral Ghats.

Have you travelled on the KNW -Mhow line ??? Just fir the sake of writing something Don't blame British .The soil near onkarewar ,chorak is loose soil ..So running BG rails o n route is problem .Now railways ki doing survey Sanawad to budwah with different route ( Geologist will tell you more )
For your views I am sharing bridge built by British more than 110 years ago at Rajmundhary over Godavari river .Foundation pillars are still intact .And railways tried to dismantle ,but only partially sucesful . In pic New bridge is in back ground .

Line from Ujjain Jn.
Laxmi Bai Nagar Jn -- Line from Ujjain Jn. via Dewas (Note: - Maksi Dewas Line made in 2000-10 period)
Indore
Mhow
Simrol
Choral
Balwada
Barwaha
Omkareswar Rd.
Sanawad

Ajainti
Khandwa

But after the British handed over making of this line to Rajputana-Malwa Railways, the BG line was dropped & A full Ratlam Khandwa MG line via Patalpani Kalakund was made.

In the MG era, i think it is HYB - Jaipur Meenakshi express. which was later cancelled at time of GC and then HYB - AII introduced. Right now there is another train TPTY - RMM meenakshi express.

It is a YG (not a YB), the standard 2-8-2 meter gauge freight loco for IR after independence. This particular locomotive was manufactured by Nippon Sharyo, a Japanese company and delivered to IR in 1954.

It was initially a bi-weekly between KCG-AII introduced in October, 1977. It used to reverse at SC and proceed towards Purna.
Sometime in the mid-80's, it was dieselised for part of the route and I believe that was the time it was sped up and converted to a SC-JP daily train. However, only a few coaches actually ran the entire distance. Most of the coaches from SC were detached at Khandwa and only a few coaches ran over the ghat section between Khandwa and Mhow, and again section coaches were attached between Mhow and Jaipur.
