A Big and Busiest Junction Under SCR Zone "Vijayawada Junction" didn't have Bye-pass Line till last year 2016.Especially the Trains Coming From Visakhapatnam/Howrah/Bhubaneshwar/Guwahati/Sambalp ur/Kakinada/Machilipatnam/Narasapur going towards Hyderabad Via Kazipet route should be LocoReversed.Still Now the same Process has been repeating for these trains at Vijayawada Junction.The Trains Which are Coming from Kazipet Direction and Going towards Visakhapatnam direction which are getting Locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction are:-
I)Godavari S/F Express (12727/28) HYB-VSKP-HYB Daily Up and Down
II)Gowthami S/F Express (12737/38) SC-COA-SC Daily UP and Down
III)EastCoast

Express (18646/45)HYB-HWH-HYB Daily Up and Down
IV)Konark Express (11019/20) CSTM-BBS-CSTM Daily Up and Down
V)LTT Express (18519/20) VSKP-LTT-VSKP Daily Up and Down
VI)Machilipatnam S/F Express(12749/50) SC-MTM-SC Daily Up and Down
VII)GareebRath S/F Express (12739/40) SC-VSKP-SC Daily Up and Down

XII)Cocanada A.C S/F Express (12775/76) (CCT-SC-CCT) Up and Down (Tri-Weekly) Up and Down
XIII)Shirdi Express (17206/05) (COA-SNSI-COA) Up and Down Tri-Weekly
XIV)Dwaraka Express(18401/02) (PURI-OKHA-PURI) Up and Down Weekly
XV)Gandhidhaam Express(18501/02) (VSKP-GIMB-VSKP) Up and Down Weekly

XVII)Duronto A.C SuperFast Express (VSKP-SC-VSKP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (22203/04)
XVIII)Nagawali S/F Express (SBP-NED-SBP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (12755/56)
XIX)Nanded S/F Express (VSKP-NED-VSKP) Up and Down Tri-Weekly (12753/54)
XX)Shalimar A.C SuperFast Express (SHM-SC-SHM) Up and Down Weekly (12773/74)
XXI)Shalimar S/F Express (SHM-SC-SHM) Up and Down Weekly (22849/50)
XXII)Guwahati S/F Express (GHY-SC-GHY) Up and Down Weekly (12513/14)
XXIII)Tatanagar Express (TATA-YPR-TATA) Up and Down Weekly (18111/12)
In this way daily 9 Express/Superfast Express should be locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction in both directions and Remaining 14 Weekly/Bi-Weekly/Tri-Weekly Express/SuperFast/A.C Expresses should also be locoreversed at Vijayawada Junction
How long this locoreversal Problem continues at Vijayawada Junction?The better solution for this is to Construct " Vijayawada North Railway station" after Kondapalli with 4 platforms to avoid loco reverse problem.
Earlier the same situation was repeated at Kazipet Junction and Wardha Junction.Later on those halts were replaced by warangal and sevagram.Now we hope for Vijayawada Junction also

Few things I know, which might be helpful.
-
The main bus stand is at a walkable distance from the railway station.
I have done so many times.
But on those occasions when you
...

are tired or have many luggages, then you can use the share autos that are waiting near the South entrance (Entry no. 5, if I am not wrong). This entrance is on the south end of PF 1 - See last pic.
They charged me Rs. 10.
-
-
At the bus stand I saw this bus "Durga Divya Radham", which was exclusively for those visiting the Kanaka Durga Temple. Also it does go via other places too. I just enquired for the temple and he said it is Rs. 10.
Nicely modelled bus, have seen such buses at Kollegal for going to M. M Hills temple.
-
The bus stand itself is a delight for bus fans (many railfans are bus fans too:)).
If you are a bus fan, then definitely you need to see this bus stand and spend some time.
-
A very clean and well maintained huge bus stand in the middle of the city. Such huge bus stands in the middle of the city is rare nowadays because the bus stand becomes too small to take in all the buses as the city and its populace grows, or is encroached upon. So, many of the new bus stands are being built away from the center.
Majestic used to be one such mammoth, till Metro swallowed up the 2 depots and half the bus stand.
Few bus stands like this one stands out for various reasons other than the size.
- You can see various destination buses here. For a bus fan that's a delight. But it has come down drastically because the Express buses have been replaced by luxury buses and many services have been stopped.
- There used to be an old bus (with a front driver cabin and engine) stationed here for tourist attraction, but not to be seen now. They said its gone to the depot for repair or something. Hope it comes back.
- This bus stand I remember as back as 2005-06 had the concept of providing cold clean drinking water if one had a bottle, for just a little amount of money. This was a boon for those not wanting to buy a new bottle. IR in the recent years started the same thing with similar water kiosks on PFs.
- The hotels inside the bus stand has a good range of tasty food at reasonable rates.
- There are other facilities too like AC waiting room etc..

This is based on my last trip to BZA. The station as all know if absolutely big and real heaven for rail fans with dozens of trains arriving and departing every hour! (Sorry for being long post)
Food options:
The station is very clean as staff are working very well. The PF 1 side has various options for food named as Rail Dhaba like curry kitchen for south Indian dishes, then Madras coffee point which serves filter coffee which is a little expensive (Rs.19 for a tiny glass).
The

premise also has a small counter of KFC only serving their chicken items and no burgers. The water filling point is also conveniently placed beside these food joints.
Then of course many small refreshments joints selling butter milk, lassi which is absolutely required for such humid climate. There are also fruit juice shops selling juice for Rs.20 for Musambi, pineapple etc which was very good and refreshing.
Facilities:
As many commented there are AC waiting hall and other regular passenger halls. I was surprised not to see a single escalator in entire station premise (I hope there are escalators, please comment). It is a big requirement for such a mammoth station.
Transport options:
a) From PF#1 side (easter gate) there is a prepaid auto stand. Please don't give your ears to the auto guys who come to you asking if auto needed. Just walk outside from PF#1 side to see the police counter, get auto from there. From my experience I see the difference in fare between normal auto and prepaid auto was ~20-40 Rs. It may be more if they see people are new and unaware of facilities. So prepaid booth is very useful.
b) Just adjacent to the prepaid booth is the bus stop. There are several buses departing from here. I understand you can almost board any bus to take you to bus stand. If your target place is Kanakadurga temple, then there are frequent buses (at least once in 10 minutes which I saw) styled like Tirumala Tirupathi buses, if you are familiar with it. Caution: If you see the bus a little crowded, please avoid as it becomes more crowded from bus stand as it goes through this route. In humid conditions, such crowd and heat will not
give a goods experience. The fare though is just Rs. 10.
Instead if you are not tight on budget, please opt for prepaid auto which may be just around 50rs or Ola auto for ~70rs.
