This train should be upgraded to SF ..
It should start early at PDY(5 AM) and reach MS in 3 hrs.
It should be extended to BZA and the present JS(12077) should be scrapped.

OK what about the return then it will reach MS at 2230 Pondy at 130.changing time to 500 will defeat the purpose of the train which is expected to serve daily travellers to reach at office of 900 to 1000.I don't think the journey time can be cut to 3 hrs.

PDY - VM its 30 mins
VM - MS 2 hrs 30 mins should be sufficient ..
Coming to JS
12077 JS should be re-routed Via TEL instead of NGNT ..(There r multiple buses from TEL to GNT)
its starts at 8:10 it can reach BZA by 14:15
Return if it starts at 14:30 it can reach MS 20:35
If it starts at 20:45 it can reach 23:45 to PDY
To mitigate the loss 56860 can be converted to Exp and extended till MS ..

Don't think 6 hrs to egmore is possible for intercity with stops during daytime. Will GNT representatives be ready to divert it back to mainline is a big question. They will ask to reroute pinakini via NGNT are u open for such proposal?? Turnaround time in BZA maintenance time at PDY not sufficient 5 hrs is too low the effective time available is just 4 hrs according to your timings. Some trains which are introduced to benefit local travellers serving office goers and business travellers should not be extended to other places.

Agreed sir! Even if SCR prefers to use the GY route to cut short distances, they should provide enough alternatives for GTL people. Trains like Seven Hills, BZA-DMM can be diverted via GTL. And now that electrification is complete, they can run GTL-HX and GTL-ATP MEMUs.
GTL, KRNT, ATP, HX are within 180km of each other. And GTL-HX route isn't very congested. SCR can improve local connectivity here by running a shared set of DEMU/MEMU rakes with suitable RSA. At least a normal passenger service can be started using the pit line at GTL.

For Hyd you have ypr kcg express which arrives departs at sc and GTL at most convenient time while u also have rayalseema. For Vijayawada too u have amaravati at convenient time both sides which cater to the needs of public from around the region. There is further scope for increase in coaches for both these trains.

It is nothing short of foolishness if the trains going via PENDEKALLU and GOOTY are diverted to run via GUNTAKAL.It is a bottleneck because loco direction is to be changed which will consume a lot of time.

I agree with you. Rake reversal is a major problem here.
I have done some independent research and found a solution to this problem. That is connecting DHNE-GTL and RC-GTL lines. Just before GTL town these two lines come very close to each other may be about 0.5kms, after Mallappa Gate.
If these lines can be connected in such a way that trains coming from DHNE go the RC-GTL line at Guntakal Chord Cabin, then rake reversal problem will be avoided, this will bring some bypassing trains back to GTL.

Yes, but that announcement came out recently that SWR will short terminate YPR-Karwar express and run TPTY-VSG via Shiradi ghat route.
Besides SWR was completely cutting down any proposals form SCR about trains in Braganza. When SCR asked for a separate slot to de-link KCG-VSG from Amaravati, SWR told them to run the KCG-VSG train via Salem-Coimbatore!! That was one ridiculous proposal!! That's why I am shocked that there are letting a new train through Braganza route.

Heard that this train started on request by once a member of this site who directly in touch with SWR GM. Timings, stoppages and days of operation entirely suggested by him has been took into consideration and without changing anything they started it. Now Naidu wrote to Suresh Prabhu, seems it is going to be regular one very soon. 😎

GR TT marindi telusu kabate Kondavedu kuda maridi ani cheptuna......and BZA HX via YA NDL radu kabate DMM Vskp daily ayidi ani cheptuna
GR ane concept poyindi,adi daily ayidi ani discussion just vadinchatame tapa use ledu...Kndavedu daily ki try chesi SCR impossible ani DMM ki new slot ichindi.
slot maridi bcz SCR wants YPR KCG tri weekly to be daily after Bidar exp becoming SCR rake
Prasanthi crowd vundi train ivandi ante ivaru mastaru....its IR which works in such way....
we should not forget the history that Vskp DMM has become BZA DMM, even tough ECoR agreed for Dmm Vskp and SCR ready to give for Dmm Vskp also ust with reason route congestion its rejected.....
It dont mean that every train gets rejected.....there are trains which ran as spls which will get regularized and will run as spls also.

Entry# 2077210   News Entry# 286957         Tags   Past Edits
Demanding better rail connectivity to the IT corridor, a group of techies and residents of Hi-tec City and surrounding areas came together on Sunday. Under the banner ‘Improve Lingampalli Station,’ the members met at Nizampet main road and discussed the issue.
According to them, the Lingampally station should be improved so that trains travelling to major destinations outside the State should have a stopover at this station. The convenor of the forum, Velaga Srinivas, said people living in the areas of Madhapur, Kondapur, Gachibowli, Kukatpally, and Miyapur have to travel at least two hours to reach Secunderabad or Kachiguda railway stations.
lot of people have been missing trains because of traffic and long distance. However, the trigger was the recent incident wherein a professor of University of Hyderabad had to rush to his native place as his father had passed away. He could not reach the station on time,” said Mr. Srinivas. “I posted on online forums regarding the need to have an improved station at Lingampally. Those who supported the cause got together and formed a group.”
The members felt that the station should have a stop for trains travelling to Vizag, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Chennai, and Delhi.
The group is planning to collect 50,000 signatures as part of the campaign to drum up support for their demand. “We will meet the railway officials and submit a representation. Depending on the response, we will also approach the State government,” said Mr. Srinivas.

Mr. Haribabu also appealed to him to sanction funds for the Machilipatnam-Bantumilli-Nizampatnam-Repalle-Bapatla alternative railway line in the 2017-18 budget.
He told the Railway Minister that the Machilipatnam-Repalle line was completed in 2006 itself and estimates were prepared with Rs. 481 crore
for the Repalle-Nizampatnam-Bapatla line and sent to the Railway Board in July 2014.
The MP told the Minister that he would soon procure intensive care ambulances with his MPLADS funds and put them to use in all the 13 districts of Andhra Pradesh.
BJP leader Ungarala China Babu accompanied the MP.

All DD's bearing one or two are running in losses ..
It will be good if it is VSKP-BZA-TPTY/SC but not VSKP-BZA-VSKP ..
It should ONT .. rather than day time ICE ..then it will at-least compete with Volvo Buses ..
it will be another White Elephant ..
