जी हां, राऊ फायदेमंद है क्यूंकि वहीं पास में आईआईएम इंदौर भी है और पीथमपुर शहर नज़दीक है। राऊ में भी काफी जनता रहती है, पीथमपुर शेहर तक लाइन पहुंची नही है, रेलवे तो टीही तक मालगाड़ी चलाके पैसा कमा लेगा। इन्दौर से पीथमपुर कई up downers हैं। Many outsiders and college students (specially of IPS academy Indore and nearby colleges) live in Rajendra Nagar

In the MG era, i think it is HYB - Jaipur Meenakshi express. which was later cancelled at time of GC and then HYB - AII introduced. Right now there is another train TPTY - RMM meenakshi express.
It is a YG (not a YB), the standard 2-8-2 meter gauge freight loco for IR after independence. This particular locomotive was manufactured by Nippon Sharyo, a Japanese company and delivered to IR in 1954.
It was initially a bi-weekly between KCG-AII introduced in October, 1977. It used to reverse at SC and proceed towards Purna.
Sometime in the mid-80's, it was dieselised for part of the route and I believe that was the time it was sped up and converted to a SC-JP daily train. However, only a few coaches actually ran the entire distance. Most of the coaches from SC were detached at Khandwa and only a few coaches ran over the ghat section between Khandwa and Mhow, and again section coaches were attached between Mhow and Jaipur.
