1 compliments
100% Agree..
I belong to a place which is a big industrial tourism and educational hub.Despite these factors my city is very behind in terms of railway development......
But i thought there would be more cities b places like these all over India which have great potential to generate decent revenue for Indian Railways but are NEGLECTED.
Here is a list I compiled of such places.
as rail fans are not biased towards any place all v want to c is that Indian Railways just keep doing good work.
So I want u people to vote for the place u think needs Good rail development (given its importance as a tourist, industrial, educational hub)
If u don't find the place you have in ur mind just vote for others and do mention the place in comments.
Plz vote.
Have a nice Sunday.
Also plz comment how u liked d idea behind d poll.
NO vote

Bidar, GR may not have such high demand to Jaipur, HWH. But these places have good demand to Bengaluru, Hyderabad.
We all know the heavy rush between Kalburgi and Bengaluru, but most of us dont know the rush of Yadgir-Bengaluru. One should just stand at Yeshwantpur's PF-1 between 20:00 to 20:50 to see the general coaches of YPR-SUR exp, most of them would be to Yadgir. All the 7 days of the week all the general coaches would be damn full. Since trains cannot start from Yadgir, starting a train from Bidar via GR would cater to Yadgir as well as Raichur districts. But SCR always diverts all trains via KRNT, DHNE though Raichur route is doubled.

Yes this I completely agree with u ....I once travelled in NED -SBC Hampi link express.....in sleeper. ...some co passengers who were regular travellers told our family to upgrade ticket from sleeper to A.C. if possible because after yadgir all these coach become like General bogies.....and exactly same happened after Yadgir sea of people boarded the train ....we could not sleep whole night comfortably
