The 18047/48 SHM VSG Amaravati express is a nostalgic train as it was running then between BZA VSG on daily basis prior to gauge conversion. The frequency was increased from biweekly to quadruply infact it should be converted to daily. It should be speeded up between the newly doubled GTL TNGT section and also converted into SF by reducing unnecessary stops. The existing departure timings from VSG must be changed to 9 a.m.

Previously it used to depart VSG at 7.50 am arriving HWH at 22.25 but it was in 2006 but due to single line territory it always used to get delayed but now from Tinaighat to GTL entire stretch is doubled and few patches in GTL GNT section doubled too. So SF conversion should definitely be taken up and not only this but all trains on GTL LD route run awfully slow this section needs a definite speed upgrade.
Infact trains on SBC UBL section run much faster than GTL UBL when SBC UBL is not even a full double line.
thing this Amaravati express needs is upgrade to LHB rakes by cancellation of the KCG VSG slip don't know why this joke of a slip is still being continued.
SWR increased VSG YPR frequency daily and cancelled VSG SBC slip so don't know why they rejected SCR proposal to run SC VSG biweekly ??

The TPTY/HYB VSG weekly express exists so the proposal was accepted, this can easily be converted to biweekly.

Not this SCR had dedicated biweekly train from SC to VSG proposal last year.
This I heard was rejected by SWR citing Ghat constraints. If this was accepted TPTY VSG and HWH VSG would have run with dedicated rakes and HWH VSG most probably LHB rake.

I understand but early morning departure from VSG is not preferable for trains originating from Goa, LHB is the future of IR but it will gradually be done by SWR.

On similar schedule VSG JSME is running now on different day. Dedicated train required very badly between VSG to SC.

Goa SF needs LHB ASAP!!!
So now after Mangala SF is getting LHB rakes this train is the only remaining ICF SF of South India connecting Delhi all thanks to the attitude of SWR towards Goa. SWR is really the new East India Company only interested in looting Goa in the form of coal rakes and providing good trains and facilities only to Karnataka.
Even less priority super crawlers of Karnataka are running with LHB rakes wheras all the important trains of VSG are ICF and that too old used coaches of trains like KSK. Just 26kms away from VSG is KR's MAO which is a 💯 LHB base now.
is so bad that they even rejected SERs proposal to LHBfy Amaravati express by cancellation of the stupid KCG slip. All problems would have been solved if SWR had agreed to the SC VSG biweekly train. Even if SWR has no intentions to LHBfy their own trains at VSG atleast other zones like SER and SCR could have LHBfied their trains.
When all other stations are having atleast one LHB train VSG has none all thanks to the third class zone of SWR.
And even the ICF trains of SWR from VSG have same copy paste CC except Goa express. All SWR trains from VSG apart from Goa express have only three AC coaches wheras from Karnataka they have anywhere from 6 to 9. Trains to tourist destination like Goa having only 3 AC coaches is really ridiculous.
I hope the PM of trains VSG PNBE and VSG JSME is transferred to ECR and ER respectively atleast they will run it with LHB coaches and sufficient AC coaches and a Pantry Car which is another thing missing in VSG trains apart from Goa express.
Worst zone in IR only interested in exploiting one state for the benefit of other aka SWR.

Into your brain, successfully 😂
Like I already said, you can take these threats and shove them up your wherever, for all I care. 😂

A troll gets replied in the language that he understands and if you can troll someone but get offended when somebody gives it back, seek help.

Like someone brought in the topic of those Goans opposing doubling. There is no difference between the mentality of those Goans and you my dear brother and friend. 🙏
