Route becomes very long. The distance from BZA to NDLS via VSKP, Raipur will be 2,120 kms but the shortest route from BZA to NDLS via WL, NGP, BPL in which all trains to NDLS run will be just 1,750 kms. So, Raj cannot be runned via BZA, VSKP, Raipur.

They cannot attach the old coach with screw coupling with LHB CBC coupling. As Kirandul Express is running with ICF screw coupling though the coach came in June it was transferred to Mumbai to run in Goa/Pune route as they need 3 coaches for KR monsoon they are not enough coaches to form 2 rakes or 22 coaches.

Being freight route you cant expect one more train till it is doubled which will take another 5 yrs. Another possibility is to run triweekly Vskp Rayagada Koraput line trails with LHB are also conducted but not sure of traffic as it doesn't return by evening.

A Perfect Example of Team Work.
This is how Indian Railways Functions...

We were travelling from Kirandul to Visakhapatnam on train number 08515 KRDL - VSKP Exp, as soon as we were about to reach Araku station; we saw a WAG9 Loco Coupled with a Beautiful Vistadome Coach in the rear.

our Surprise that coach was meant for our train from Araku to Vizag.
Our train 08515 made it's scheduled Halt in the PF01 at ARK then we saw Guard, Loco Pilot & a Point's Man were discussing about amalgamation of Vistadome Coach to our train.
WAG9 Loco was slowly approaching our train with Vistadome Coach (in Reverse Shunting mode) our train Guard was continuously communicating with Loco Pilot of WAG9 Locomotive.
Mean while the points man was all set to Couple the Vistadome Coach with our train 08515.
These people are the real heroes of Indian Railways, who put thier relentless efforts to provide safe journey to the passengers on board by maintaining maximum safety protocols.

As soon as the Vistadome Coach was Coupled with our train, passenger who had reserved seats were allowed to board the Coach. Slowly the same point's man removed the coupling of WAG9 Loco with Vistadome Coach & our train Departed from Araku on time with the Vistadome Coach at the rear.

As soon as we departed Araku after sometime there was a heavy downpour which resulted in low MPS (Maximum Permissible Speed) of the train.
By the time we reached Borra Caves it was still raining but our Loco Pilots didn't give up this early & they slowly pulled the train through the long tunnels & bridges despite of the Rain.
Meanwhile the Ground Level Employees i.e The Gang Mans & Track Surveillance Team were continuously Monitoring the Railway Tracks in Heavy Rain, & passing the information swiftly to Enroute Stations so that our train can pass through the section and we passengers can safely reach our homes.

After getting down from high elevated areas the rain stopped & we reached the Main Line (Kottavalsa Jn) at around 19:50 which means we were delayed by more than 40mins.
Our train had to reach VSKP at 20:20 we had 40mins to reach our destination from KTV Jn. Our Path was cleared & our Loco Pilots accelerated the White Stallion VSKP WAP7 in full aggression.
Our train was hitting 110MPS from KTV to SCMN & we halted for 2mins at SCM Station, We were still delayed at SCM but Slack time saved our trains Punctuality.
08515 KRDL - VSKP Exp reached its final destination at 20:17 (3mins Before Time)
All thanks to the Operating Department of Indian Railways for making us reach our destinations safely on time.

Kudos to the Ground Level Unsung Heros Indian Railways....❤️❤️

Good to hear the arrival of the train at right time. Earlier it used to reach 3 hours late. May be they improved the running after adding Vistadome in 2017 after getting feedback it is getting dark the moment the train starts from, Araku because of late running.
