A Big and Busiest Junction Under SCR Zone "Vijayawada Junction" didn't have Bye-pass Line till last year 2016.Especially the Trains Coming From Visakhapatnam/Howrah/Bhubaneshwar/Guwahati/Sambalp ur/Kakinada/Machilipatnam/Narasapur going towards Hyderabad Via Kazipet route should be LocoReversed.Still Now the same Process has been repeating for these trains at Vijayawada Junction.The Trains Which are Coming from Kazipet Direction and Going towards Visakhapatnam direction which are getting Locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction are:-
I)Godavari S/F Express (12727/28) HYB-VSKP-HYB Daily Up and Down
II)Gowthami S/F Express (12737/38) SC-COA-SC Daily UP and Down
Express (18646/45)HYB-HWH-HYB Daily Up and Down
IV)Konark Express (11019/20) CSTM-BBS-CSTM Daily Up and Down
V)LTT Express (18519/20) VSKP-LTT-VSKP Daily Up and Down
VI)Machilipatnam S/F Express(12749/50) SC-MTM-SC Daily Up and Down
VII)GareebRath S/F Express (12739/40) SC-VSKP-SC Daily Up and Down
VIII)Narasapur Express(17213/14) NSL-NS-NSL (Except 2 days in a week) Up and Down
IX)AP A.C S/F Express(22416/15) NDLS-VSKP-NDLS Daily Up and Down
X)Swarnajayanthi S/F Express(12803/04) NZM-VSKP-NZM (Bi-weekly) Up and Down
XI)Link S/F Express(12861/62) NZM-VSKP-NZM Daily Up and Down
XII)Cocanada A.C S/F Express (12775/76) (CCT-SC-CCT) Up and Down (Tri-Weekly) Up and Down
XIII)Shirdi Express (17206/05) (COA-SNSI-COA) Up and Down Tri-Weekly
XIV)Dwaraka Express(18401/02) (PURI-OKHA-PURI) Up and Down Weekly
XV)Gandhidhaam Express(18501/02) (VSKP-GIMB-VSKP) Up and Down Weekly
XVI)Visakhapatnam A.C SuperFast Express (VSKP-SC-VSKP) (12783/84) Up and Down Weekly
XVII)Duronto A.C SuperFast Express (VSKP-SC-VSKP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (22203/04)
XVIII)Nagawali S/F Express (SBP-NED-SBP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (12755/56)
XIX)Nanded S/F Express (VSKP-NED-VSKP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (12753/54)
XX)Shalimar A.C SuperFast Express (SHM-SC-SHM) Up and Down Weekly (12773/74)
XXI)Shalimar S/F Express (SHM-SC-SHM) Up and Down Weekly (22849/50)
XXII)Guwahati S/F Express (GHY-SC-GHY) Up and Down Weekly (12513/14)
XXIII)Tatanagar Express (TATA-YPR-TATA) Up and Down Weekly (18111/12)
In this way daily 9 Express/Superfast Express should be locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction in both directions and Remaining 14 Weekly/Bi-Weekly/Tri-Weekly Express/SuperFast/A.C Expresses should also be locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction
How long this locoreversal Problem continues at Vijayawada Junction?The better solution for this is to Construct " Vijayawada North Railway station" after Kondapalli with 4 platforms to avoid loco reverse problem.
Earlier the same situation was repeated at Kazipet Junction and Wardha Junction.Later on those halts were replaced by warangal and sevagram.Now we hope for Vijayawada Junction also

Free Wifi service is now available since 5th May 2015.
Enjoy unlimited data with around 1 Gbps speed.
Raipur becomes India's 3rd railway station where this facility is now available under Google's Free Wifi service and 'Digital India' mission.
was followed by Kacheguda and Vijayawada railway stations.

For passengers travelling from Howrah to Vijayawada :
If you find it difficult to get seats in trains like Coromandel, Falaknuma, HWH YPR, Chennai Mail, etc. Try Amaravati express its GNWL for 18047 btw HWH to BZA also average speed is on par with above trains.

The General Travelling Crowd/Railfanning Tip:
In this train , for General coaches the crowd is very good in amount for boarding at VSKP. But still once you have boarded , everybody gets a seat (seat doesn't means ony lower sitting seat;the upper portion is also used a seat). Take your seat and go for a good sleep. It will be badly needed next whole day.
The crowd keeps on building up as it passes RJY , TNKU , BVRT , AKVD. But all of a sudden at BZA, the whole General bogie
gets emptied out.
From BZA to PUNE , Full empty General Coaches. Take your window seat and and enjoy the full day time journey. From Pune , then again it gets fair amount of "Inter city travelling people" for Mumbai on weekends.
PS: You will get window seat at BZA , only if you have boarded from VSKP. If you board from BZA, then you will get a seat but not a window seat. LOL
And Don't forget to keep a Power Pack for your Mobile phone as there is NO charging Socket for General coaches.
For Best Results, Do a railfanning trip from VSKP to PUNE in the month of June-July. Rains will give serious views to catch.
