Interlocking is usually mechanical or relay based. In such interlocking systems, the various routes and switches outside a station are physically connected together so that setting one route through the station automatically disables all other routes.
For example, in a station with 2 loop lines and a main line, if a train is going to pass through the main line without stopping, the main line signal will be set to green and the switches will be set so that the train stays on the main line. In a mechanical interlocking, the points and signals will be connected in such a way that turning the signal green automatically prevents the points from being changed until the signal is

changed to Red. This prevents accidental changing of points while the train is passing through. Relay based systems also do a similar thing where the electronic switches operating the points are connected in such a way that switching on a few switches automatically disconnects other switches.
In these systems, if the routes in the interlocking have to be changed, say, after construction of a new loop line, then all the mechanical/electrical connections have to be relaid again. In a Solid state interlocking, all the switches controlling the points and signals are controlled via software running on microprocessors ( Hence the name 'solid state', which is the general term used for semiconductor devices like microprocessors). In these systems, changing the routes can be done purely through software changes and does not require any physical modifications in the Yard.

So what are the advantages of using Solid state interlocking ? And does it increase the capacity and MPS of the section where it is in use ??

It doesn't directly increase the MPS or Capacity. It is mostly used for more flexibility and in general, it is a more advanced form of interlocking.
The advantages are as follows:
1) Flexibility and construction time- As I mentioned earlier, Solid state interlocking provides a lot of flexibility. In a normal interlocking, every modification requires physical work to be done. Wires have to be relaid and sometimes the tracks themselves have to plucked up and relaid to incorporate any new loop lines or additional signals. For a Solid state interlocking, as everything is
...

done in software, altering the routes is just a matter of updating the software, which can be done in a few hours and doesn't need any physical work to be done on the location. This also reduces the time taken for making changes or commissioning a new interlocking system, as a physical system would require a long procedure involving tenders, contracts, construction etc.
2) It can indirectly increase capacity as well. Usually, in most stations, trains end up waiting at the outer even if platforms are available. This is because the interlocking system automatically blocks a few routes. There may be a few empty platforms available at the time, but because of the interlocking, some platforms may not be accessible as the routes would conflict with trains on other platforms. Now, to improve this situation, in a normal interlocking system, one has to remodel all the tracks in the yard to provide accessibility to the empty platforms. However, in a solid state interlocking, they can just implement the changes through a software upgrade. This can practically be implemented in a few hours and can reduce congestion in these stations.
Almost all high speed, high traffic networks in the world now use solid state interlocking.

There isn't much concern about failures. These are not old locomotives. They have been manufactured between 2000-2002 and are now in the prime of their working life. Most of them have been underutilized in interior TN. Now, they can finally run to their full capacity on KR's high speed tracks!

Re# 2285802-14            Tags   Past Edits
There are always some issues, but we are doing much better than many other divisions of IR. We have three stations (other than BZA) with long distance originating trains. With more than 300 passing trains, it will be difficult to have many originating trains from BZA. That's why most trains (other than intercities) keep starting from NS/MTM or COA, so that congestion at BZA can be reduced. Other than the SC bound trains like Gowthami, all the other trains originating in the BZA division don't get filled up at the originating station and serve both Godavari districts and BZA.
BZA should be made the hub for ICEs, but for long distance trains, better to use MTM/NS/COA as

originating stations with a healthy quota for BZA.

disagree sir..we need long distance trains from capital city BZA why we have to depend on NS,MTM,CCT originating trains where hardly any seats for BZA pax..

That's what I was mentioning sir. Those three can be used as originating trains with a healthy quota for BZA. For example, Circar runs with de-reserved coaches till BZA. Seshadri also used to run with dereserved coaches till BZA. NS-NSL mostly gets passengers from BZA.
Even if these three get originating trains, only the ones towards SC get completely filled at the originating station itself. All the other trains like Seshadri, Circar, LTT express, Kondaveedu get a lot of passengers from intermediate stations like RJY or BZA. The quota may be a bit less now, but

solution can definitely be found to ensure good quota for BZA.
You are not depending on NS, MTM, CCT for your trains. You are just depending on them to take the load off BZA. Think of it like how SBC trains get dumped at MYS to reduce the load on SBC. In a similar way, these three are more or less just originating points. If BZA becomes the originating point for all long distance trains, then again more trains will have to be started to serve the Godavari districts or the south coastal districts as these will not be covered by trains originating at BZA. This will severely congest BZA. Instead of running multiple duplicate trains, it will be better for everybody to use the available originating stations efficiently. Other than SC/TPTY, there is never enough passenger traffic to fill up an entire train for any other destination from these places. Quotas can be adjusted perfectly for BZA and keep everybody happy.

Source: Report on Indian Railways, 1987 - click here
Inaugurated on April 6th, 1987 as 929/930 Hyderabad-Cochin weekly express. Prior to that, there were slip coaches from Cochin to Hyderabad. The slip coaches were attached to 81/82 Jayanti Janata express (CSTM-CAPE) at Cochin and were detached at RU (later it was GTL) and were attached there to the Tirupati-Hyderabad express.

Slip coaches connecting to the train would also be difficult as it is the only daily train from SBC/MAS to Patna and already runs packed. It's already a 24 coacher and there's still lot of demand for more. True, it does waste some time in running via MAS, but that is unavoidable as it belonged to MAS/SR earlier and SR will never agree for it to skip MAS.
The prospects for having trains on TRT-RU route from KPD side look bad now, as TPTY is the first preference for passing trains due to the higher passenger traffic. Even the BZA-SBC ICE that was circulating in the discussions sometime ago, would run via TPTY only. For now,

only connecting passenger/MEMUs to RU seems to be a possible solution. May be, requesting for diversion of some of the weekly trains or requesting for halts for passing trains would yield a better result.

What a glory this train has!!
It was first introduced as ICE between vijayawada and tirupatilater it got extended to secunderabad later to nizamabad and finally now it is running between Adilabad and Tirupati
As now state got divided a similar train should be introduced between parvatipuram/parvatipuram town to tirupati

Avunu, looks like that entry is wrong. But you can search for it on Google Books. The Wiki entry needs to be updated. You can search for Krishna express in these : click here and click here Apparently it was the fastest train in SCR at the time.

One more small correction sir, it was first introduced as ICE between SC and BZA, later extended to GNT.
After that it was extended to TPTY skipping GNT.
Later it was HYB-TPTY, then extended to NZB and now upto ADB.

Thanks! I wasn't sure of that. All the sources I checked had it as SC-GNT, but one or two had it as Hyderabad-Vijayawada. I presumed the two cities were just mentioned casually to indicate connectivity and not as the exact terminals. Thanks for providing the additional info!
I do remember seeing it as HYB-TPTY. We used to cross it while traveling by Gautami in both directions.

One more interesting point. IT was also the first train to run with electric traction on Gudur-RU route after it was electrified. I think it used to have a loco change at RU as the RU-TPTY section wasn't electrified at the time.
