By uday

The Belgaum railway station is undergoing a makeover. The platform has been enlarged to accommodate 24 bogies and also the height of the platform has been increased.

A new Coach Guidance System has been put in place since 21-03-2007, the system where in you come to know where your bogie will actually come. This was a demand from a long time from Belgaumites. But I was not surprised to see that even when a new train came the old train no and its bogie numbers never changed. Of what use is this system then? I was waiting for Haripriya Express and the Coach guidance system was showing me Garib Nawz express. The railways spend so much money on putting in place these systems then why is that they don’t function as they have to.

Digital clocks have also been installed and to my surprise they were showing correct time and also the old analog clocks were more surprisingly also were showing the correct time.

One thing, which I observed was that, all the tress at the entrance gate was been chopped off. May be it’s a part of the make over of the station.

Someone on the forums page on this blog has added a new plan for Belgaum railway station here is the link to it
I did try to contact the person who put it up but I got no response.
