A sea of people head to Secunderabad Railway Station any given day, from frenzied commuters to those who wait for hours
A railway station is like a microcosm of its city. The Secunderabad Railway Station, a much larger hub of commute than the Nampally and Kacheguda stations, can lend itself to a study of the demographics of Hyderabad and its nearby districts. That is, if one visits the station with enough time to stroll around the platforms and foot-over bridges without rushing to board a train.
Life on the platforms

is a luxury in areas surrounding the main entrance and on platform one. It’s a sea of people as far as the eye reaches. A few lucky ones have managed to find a place to sit while the rest stand and chat away in groups or perch on their luggage. The older children watch over younger siblings, mothers try to console wailing children and somewhere in between all this, a youngster stays glued to his e-reader. The station is wi-fi enabled and it’s among the recent perks at the station. The other, more important perk, which is actually a necessity, are the escalators that have come as a boon for the elderly.
The Hyderabad-Chennai-Erode train chugs in, drawing scores of passengers on to the edge of the platform. A mild drizzle has set in as a precursor to the hailstorm later that Tuesday night and all at once, the scenes vary from someone bidding a teary farewell to another group that’s taking the train with the excitement of a summer vacation. A minute or two before boarding, porters swiftly move through the crowd to help designated passengers.
Moving from one end of the station to the other, it’s striking how platforms 9 and 10 near the rear exit of the station are more laidback. The prepaid air-conditioned waiting areas and cloak rooms are situated at this end. A few cops take a break from patrolling and gather here, sipping chai while still keeping an eye out for anything out of normal.
Some stores at the station have been constant fixtures for decades. Among them is the 40-year-old A H Wheeler & Co. Rabesh Kumar, who manages the store, has observed buying patterns and shares with a smile that there are many commuters who stop by to buy books to read during their journey. Murder mysteries by Agatha Christie are ever popular, he notes, alongside newer authors like Chetan Bhagat who guarantee an easy read. A new favourite is Anand Neelakantan’s The Rise of Sivagami . In the few minutes we spend at this store, we notice three of those books flying off the shelf, with one couple grinning ear to ear spotting the book. The Baahubali fever is yet to ebb. Adjacent to Wheeler are book stores run by Ramakrishna Math and Gita Press, selling both English and Telugu titles.
South Central Railway snack bars, Vijaya dairy parlours and mobile book vendors are on every other platform. The IRCTC canteen is swiftly replenishing mixed rice items like tamarind rice and tomato rice alongside samosas and other nibbles for the evening. Not far away, an attendant at a South Central Railway snack bar refuses to budge as a customer haggles over a packet of dry fruits.
Poised for revamp
The station is 143 years old and is at the cusp of change with an impending redevelopment programme. More amenities for commuters and a redesign of the station façade are on cards. A revamp would be welcome for a station that’s almost always crammed with people. The rush on the platforms is so overwhelming that you will find commuters preferring to halt for a while on the long foot-over bridges as well if there’s a sufficient window of time before their trains arrive.
Slice of history
Royapuram railway station, from where the first train of South India operated in June 1856, is one of the oldest railway stations in India. The station was the headquarters of the Madras and Southern Mahratta Railway till 1922, after which Egmore became the headquarters.

CHENNAI: Southern Railway has announced that the Chennai Egmore-Tiruchirapalli-Chennai Egmore Cholan Express will get the high-quality German-technology make Linke Hoffman Busche coaches.
A release stated that Train No.16853/16854 will be converted to LHB rolling stock from February 16 from Chennai and February 17 from Tiruchirapalli. Already the Rockfort Express and Pandian Express on the section have LHB coaches. Thiruvananthapuram Mail and Mangalore Express are other trains with LHB coaches in the zone.

accident. They also give lesser jerks during travelling and hence passengers can have a comfortable journey.
They are made of aluminium and lighter-in-weight and hence can be pulled faster by locomotives. Indian Railways is gradually phasing out ICF-make coaches with LHB coaches as per the 2012 Kakodkar Committee report.
However, it costs Rs 2 crore to make an LHB coach as compared to Rs 75 lakh for a conventional ICF make coach.
