(IRCTC) has taken over the management of the BNR Hotel. As IRCTC lacked in resources and technical expertise in maintenance of locomotive, it requested East Coast Railway for its upkeep and maintenance and the expenditure would be borne by them.
On request from the Hotel Management and IRCTC, East Coast Railway has taken steps to repair the necessary parts of the Heritage Steam Loco. Welding of different plates and putting a brand new livery has beautified the old engine.
The century-old railway locomotive was imported by Maharaja of Paralakhemundi. It was run by Parlakimedi Light Railway (PLR). The Paralakhemundi Engine known as “PL Class” was built by Kerr, Stuart and Company of England in 1904. Weight of the engine ‘PL-692’ is 20 tonnes. This locomotive was running on narrow gauge of PLR in the Naupada-Gunupur Railway Section.

Long standing demand of Paralakhemundi-Gunupur-Theruvalli railway track was ignored yet again in the recent Railway Budget.
The people of the undivided Koraput and Paralakhemundi have been demanding the track completion since a long time. Even the MP Koraput met with the Railway Minister to streamline the demand earlier. On railway budget proposal, Jeypore-Malkangiri (135km) was sanctioned Rs 28 crore, Jeypore-Nabarangpur(38 km) Rs 15 crore, double track for Jagdalpur-Koraput(110km) Rs 85 crore and Rs 1 lakh was sanctioned for the Koraput-Singipur tract. This is indeed discrimination for south Odisha people to restore Paralakhemundi to Rayagada on railway map, the intellectual mass opined. Former bureaucrat Purnachandra Mahapatra expressed anguish over such shortfall in budgetary allocation which is a histrical blunder by the Government of

But in Karnataka more than 90% of the routes are getting electrified only because of Modi Government as Late Anant Kumar (EX MP B'lore South) was the close friend of Ex RM Suresh Prabhu he pressurized a lot and got sanctioned for electrification of all routes in Karnataka otherwise at present even SBC MYS section wouldn't have been electrified if we were depended on RB. Even KJM DLS is been upgraded to ELS because of PC Mohan who insisted to setup an ELS at Banaswadi but it will be at KJM and BAND will be a MEMU shed. And now if KLBG comes under SWR then 95% of thr requirements of Karnataka regarding rail infrastructure will be fulfilled. MoSR also pressurised officials to upgrade tracks in SBC UBL section and run trains at 130 kmph by 2022 after completion of doubling and electrification.

BHUBANESWAR:  East Coast Railway (ECoR) has decided to resume train services on Naupada-Gunupur route, which suffered heavy damage due to cyclone Titli, from Wednesday. Repair of tracks on the route connecting Paralakhemundi has already been completed. Railway tracks of about one km of the single line were washed away between Tekkali and Peddasana stations in Kottabomali-Gunupur section due to cyclone-induced rain, disrupting train services between Gunupur and Naupada for the last over 10 days.
“The repair work has been completed a day ahead of the deadline. An empty engine and later, another train were run on the repaired track on a trial basis on Tuesday. Trains will ply on the track as per schedule,” said chief PRO of ECoR JP Mishra.Initially, repair work

was delayed as the entire stretch was submerged in floodwater and the approach road built to reach the damaged tracks was also washed away. 
As per the decision, Puri-Gunupur and Visakhapatnam-Gunupur passenger trains will run according to their previous schedule from Wednesday and Rourkela-Gunupur Rajyarani Express will run regularly from October 28. Cyclone Titli-induced flood had caused extensive damage to railway tracks. Though the mainline has been restored, station buildings at Palasa, Paralakhemundi and Mandasa are yet to be repaired. Some staff quarters were also damaged in the cyclone.
