First time WAP7 enters Yesvantpur : Indian Railways BBS Express
click here
This is most probably the first time a WAP-7 Locomotive has ever conquered the Yesvantpur Line. The 6000 Horse powered White stallion hauling the Bhubaneswar - Yesvantpur Weekly Express was a utter shocking surprise, the least expected link for this train.The train is usually towed with a WAP-1/WAM-4 and
occasionally by a WAP4 .
Till date only WAP-1's , WAP-4's, WAM-4's, WAG-5/7 & 9 have hauled trains to YPR how ever not a WAP7. Now that majority of the Loco Pilots in Bangalore Division have completed their 3 Phase Loco training ,expecting more WAP-7's on this line in the coming days !.
Video captured at 2 locations Baiyapanahalli Marshalling Yard & Yesvantpur By-pass, Both the locations have been merged in the video.

That too with BBS YPR !!
This is an absolute Shocker !!
VSKP must have gone crazy to have attached a LGD P-7 to this train instead of returning it to SC.

Time has come for VSKP to say Good bye to ECoR ..
Announcement on Vizag zone after Union Budget, says Sujana
: Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has requested the Railway Ministry to take an expeditious decision on the creation of Visakhapatnam railway zone.
The Chief Minister, accompanied by Union Minister Y.S. Chowdary and P. Ashok Gajapati Raju, called on Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu
in New Delhi on Tuesday. Mr. Naidu submitted representation seeking speedy completion of pending works in the State, including connectivity between Amaravati and major cities in the south through high-speed trains.
He wanted the Railway Ministry to make sufficient budgetary allocations for the completion of the Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti and Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines besides requesting the Centre to hand over maintenance of the old bridge at Rajahmundry to the State Government. The State emphasised the need for ensuring that the allocations were made in the upcoming railway budget.
Mr. Chowdary said the Centre had given in-principle clearance for the railway zone in Visakhapatnam and the zone would be announced after the Union Cabinet formally gives its nod.
Development package
Creation of the special railway zone was part of the special development package assured to the State post bifurcation.
The State had also sought the Ministry to take up works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada. The Ministry was requested to consider the proposal for laying third line between Visakhapatnam and Chennai besides examining the proposals for development of infrastructure at important railway stations through joint ventures.
The Railway Minister, he said, positively responded to the representation and promised that surveys would be undertaken on the proposals submitted by the State Government as well as the MPs from the State.
Thrust areas
Sufficient budgetary allocations for completion of Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti, Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines
Commencement of works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada
Third line sought between Visakhapatnam and Chennai

how come it is catering both the cities
quota for VSKP had been decreased by ECoR, infact BBS has more quota than VSKP, for its extended trains - isn't true?
new coaches allotted to WAT are replaced by old coaches within weeks of their inauguration - isn't true?
new trains proposed for VSKP are rejected by ECoR stating irrelevant reasons and the same
trains are lobbied to start from BBS - isn't true
trains running from BBS are given proper/effecient TT, while that of VSKP are given TT full of slacks or less TAT - isn't true?

Its your blog, so your decision to decide the criteria but i just wish inform you that if you are making any Zone Wise Oldest train, then You CAN NOT consider the zone allocation to the respective train at time of inaugration. You HAVE to consider the PRESENT zone allocation like Chennai Mail while at start was under SR, but you have to tag it under SER only. Same is with Kalka Mail. While at the start it was under GIBR , So that doesnt means you will tag kalka mail under GIBR. You have to tag it under ER only.
Similarly at the start Purushottam exp was under SER, but you CAN NOT tag it under SER. You have to
tag it under ECoR only.
