औरंगाबाद : औरंगाबादहून मुंबईकडे जाण्यासाठी देवगिरी एक्स्प्रेसनंतर एकही रेल्वे नव्हती. त्यामुळे नांदेड - मुंबई मार्गावर नवी रेल्वे लवकरच सुरू होणार आहे. ही २२ डब्यांची रेल्वे सकाळी दहा वाजता सीएसटीएमला पोचेल अशा पद्धतीने नियोजन केले आहे.

AURANGABAD: The South Central Railway (SCR) has attained a new achievement — completing electrification of railway lines on its network to the extent of 397-km during the first quarter of the current fiscal.
Aurangabad and the region, however, have nothing to cheer as it could not benefit from this feat. While track-doubling is one of the prerequisites for electrification, the pending proposal of doubling of railway line between Manmad and Secunderabad since 2013 is considered to be major roadblock in any electrification work in the region. Incidentally, the electrification work was proposed in 2013 itself.
"As

per the norms, electrification on railway track is advised only after completion of proposed doubling work. The work on doubling of track in the region has already begun in some section with all works sanctioned by the Railway Board expected to get over before stipulated deadline of 2019-20," Rajesh Shinde, public relations officer with Nanded division of SCR, said.
Omprakash Varma of advocacy group Marathwada Railway Vikas Samiti, however, accused the SCR authorities for giving step-motherly treatment to Aurangabad and the region.
"It is understood that the electrification cannot be initiated unless track-doubling is done, but we had been demanding it since long that both these works should be carried out simultaneously on Manmad-Secunderabad route. Such measure would do away with the procedural delays such as floating of tenders and appointment of contractors," he said.
Another railway activist Raj Somani said electrification on Aurangabad-Manmad route should be also taken on priority basis. "It will cut-down journey timing of major trains as time required for changing of locomotives at Manmad junction takes a long time," he said.
Reacting to charges and demands of railway activists, the SCR authorities said electrification work can be expedited within a quick time once doubling is done.
Out of the proposed doubling work on the 81-km route from Parbhani to Mudkhed, double track on 17-kilometer stretch between Parbhani and Mirkhel has been already commissioned on June 5.
Once the Parbhani-Mirkhel doubling work gets over, the railway authorities will undertake similar work on the next stretch of 9-km route between Mugat and Mudkhed. It has already been sanctioned by the Railway Board and need to be completed by end of March 2018.
The Guntakal-Chiksugur (135.58 Kilometer), Nallapadu-Cumbum (164.48 Kilometer), Guntakal-Dhone (69 Kilometer) and Gooty-Pendekallu (28 kilometer) are the sections under the SCR that have witnessed electrification between April and June

These special trains will stop at Purna, Basmath, Hingoli, Washim, Akola, Murtizapur, Badnera, Chandur, Dhamangaon, Pulgaon and Wardha in both the directions. The trains will consist of 12 coaches including one AC II tier, two AC III tier, seven sleeper class, and two luggage cum break van coaches.
SCR authorities said latest special trains announced between Nagpur and Nanded would run in continuation with weekly special trains that are already running between these two cities.
The weekly train, which made its first trip on March 20, witnessed a topsy-turvy ride as it remained on and off the track during the initial period over occupancy issues. The SCR authorities, however, carried out a rejig of train timings and its halts before deciding to run it as a weekly special. The weekly special train between Marathwada city of Nanded and Vidarbha city of Nagpur is being operated as a precursor to the proposed regular train, authorities said

AURANGABAD : The city and region can hope for improved rail connectivity to Mumbai and Nagpur among other major cities soon.
With the Union railway minister Suresh Prabhu has hinting at new trains, the South Central Railway (SCR) officials said a few express trains could be started shortly.
"During his recent visit to Parli in Beed district, the minister was carrying a list of new trains that soon be started in the SCR division. But, he chose not to make the announcement. The plan is to start the trains first and then go

to public," said A K Sinha, divisional railway manager for SCR, Nanded division.
The SCR officials have already been trying to start a new Mumbai-bound train that will originate from Nanded be routed via Aurangbad and Nashik.
"If all goes according to plan, it will be the first train to be maintained by the SCR's Nanded division to head towards to the state capital. Central Railway (CR) authorities were earlier reluctant to accept the proposal for a new to train to Mumbai from Nanded division, owing to certain saturation issues on railway tracks. With all the related issues nearly addressed, the train could become a reality soon," railway official said.
Jalna-Dadar Jan Shatabdi Express, Mumbai- Secundarabd Devgiri Express, Mumbai-Nagpur Nandigram Express and Nanded-Mumbai Tapovan Express are daily express trains that run to Mumbai via Aurangbad apart from some weekly trains namely Ajni-Mumbai LTT Express (Saturday), Nizamabad- Mumbai LTT Express (Monday) and Tadoba Weekly Express (Sunday).
A railway official said that a new train to Nagpur from the Nanded division is also on the cards. "Altogether eight trips of the special train between Nanded-Nagpur have been planned for June. We ran a special train on this route earlier too and fresh operations were planned after reviewing occupancy and other aspects of past trips. The train could run on a permanent basis if special trips planned in June evoke a good response," he said.
