My journey from RU to HYB
This is my first travel experience on 17430 rayalaseema express. I travelled with my bro ramesh he is selected in army travelled upto HYB for certificate verification of Xth and XIIth std. My journey starts from renigunta. First i have thought that i have dreamed at renigunta station that this train will come with wdp4d of gy shed. But came with WDM3A no19996R. Ok i compromised this is also a smooth hauler. After departing of renigunta it shows the action. Slowly and smoothly increased the
speed. It is a awsome thing. Then at kadapa my friends were joined with us upto HYB. The distance between statin yo station too much between RU and GTL the train have kept at outer of GTL for about 20min. After that i have slept for a 2hrs only. Then reached MALM. The train stopped for about 10min for xing of other train . I have seen that doubling work is in progress. At Raichur we heared anouncement in kannada,hindi,english. Anouncement is superb i like that anouncement. At starting the train is jampacked then the train gradually emptied. At morning we wake up then watched surroundings of the train only few members of passengers there. Then daily travellers were put milk cans on the coach. We have never seen that cans. Then it reaches the before station of HYB suddenly one EMU follows my train. I have got wondered about that incident. Then we deborded at HYB. Ticket checking staff are asked us tickets friendly. We have asked an info about BIEAP. He told in friendly manner. Thus this is my trip in 17430rayalaseema express
Speed: 9/10
PART 2(JOURNEY on train no12770 SC TPTY 7HILLS EXPRESS from SC to TPTY) coming soon.

Very less importance to Gtl divisions from 7years.Not good progress of doubling guntakal to kalluru,gooty to dharmavaram, Gtl bypass line,inadequate funds of Gtl eloco shed causes loosing of Guntakal junction.when compare to other divisions having more importance like vijayawada to kazipet tripling sanction etc but when comes Gtl division nothing.New or special trains will run via bza from sc ,tpty,nanded,sbc whem comes to Gtl nothing.2nd highest earner of freight trains as well as passengers.Gooty to pendakallu bypass line formed so many trains from that route Result loss of trains to Guntakal.why scr neglecting to Gtl divison and forgetting importance of Gtl junction.If the bypass line formed many trains will divert via Gtl

Its all due to lack of political background and no proper unity among our region support area.
First demand our policitians to develops some industries in this area.example we have mill its been there from past many years till now no one has taken care.
We nèed to have some engineering colleges and pharmacy colleges and industries too req
Once start our opening some
industries then automatically everything will be possible. Then everyone will start giving importance on this area.
When comparing bza and sc they are getting much profit on that route for railways.its our fate though we are getting some special they are passing via pendakal bypass this is problem with our politicians only and no guntakal area support.
Going further strt building strong foundation on demands.

We should demand GTL division to be transferred to SWR, that would open the eyes of SCR..

May be Lgd will send remaining p4 s to Gtl Els and it will get only p7 in near future after Gtl Els become operational then Gtl Els will take care of its own division and SWR Bound trains mostly running towards north and Mys route as it is having less Electrified route so it won't get E loco shed in near future...

GTL will get WAG 5,7 from BZA. BZA is already homing WAP4 so LGD will transfer P4 to BZA and new P7 will be allotted to LGD

Dont expect it soon. The whole route from Pune to Renigunta has been neglected for decades. I have been traveling in these trains right from the time now CST-Chennai express use to start from Dadar must be in 90's. This line use to be single line all the way throught. The electrification of the guntakal- renigunta section has taken more than 15 yrs.
A fully double electrified track from mumbai to chennai line is very long time.
I use to always wonder why this track has been neglected always.
The reason i assume is the section between Pune to arrakonam JN ( important junction before chennai) none of the 3 railway division it falls under ( Central, South central and southern railways ) give route any important. for central there pune bhusawal line is more important, for south central Hyderabad , Visakhapatnam's and they have electrified there line in guntakal. And southern railways the track under them is less than 100 km so they dont care much. The other thing is this line does not even has enough goods traffic. apart from the few cement factories nothing else to haul. container traffics is very less. This route has no industrial belts in between. I have visitied small towns in this routes, stayed for just 1 day break journey in mattralayam road. Adoni, kadapaa. I always recommend railway retiring rooms. in mattralayam road and adoni the rooms are on the 1 st platform. There was hardly any traffic on the track all day or on station, apart from the 6-7 important trains which pass through here. rest of the time the odd passenger train comes which are mostly empty
There is no interest in developing this route.
