Mobility of trains between Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna and Cantonment railway stations received a major push on Friday following the commissioning of automatic signalling along this 4.4km stretch.

Kakinada Express (17209) was the first train to run from KSR station after automatic signalling was commissioned.

At present, nearly 110 trains ply between these stations.” Read More
