This train can be made to provide excellent connection to the passengers of parlakhemundi from Hyderabad if small change changes are made.
1. Train deparure should be revised to 6.00
2. As far as possible this train should be placed opposite to GODAVARI Exp .
The arrival of GODAVARI Exp at VSKP is 5.35.
Vskp has a dep at 545/605 for VPM Kharagpur slot trains and 620 dep Janmabhoomi so this can't have delayed dep as it has to stop at enroute stations in the same line till Pendurthi for crossing. Dep at 635 Vskp DRM may not take as the PF vacated should be given to Kirandul Exp. PF are busy from 530 to 900 with both incoming and outgoing at the same time arrival trains have to be taken to yard.
Thats at good suggestion, Gunpur can start at 6:10 am. It helps all.
Newly proposed SC SKLM Rd SF Express private train can be extended upto Gunupur bro, it will be helpful for Parlakimidi and west part of SKLM dist. Dedicated ones is better than extension of trains.
There is still time to talk about private trains as they got only 2 responses of 2 clusters. So IR wants to redraft the policy again talking to stakeholders. Moreover private trains will have full AC config as sleepers don't get revenue breakpoint and IR wants the trains to sustain highspeeds upto 160kmph keeping next 20yrs in future planning.
