"In order to clear extra rush during Sankranti festival, SCR will run a one way special train from Kakinada Town to Secunderabad," said a railway zone official.
Train number 07458, Secunderabad Sankranti Special Train, will depart Kakinada Town at 8:40 p.m. and arrive at Secunderabad at 8:45 a.m. on the next day.
En route, the train will halt at popular Sankranti hubs such as Samarlakota, Dwarapudi, Rajamundry, Nidadvolu, Tadepelligudem, Tanuku, Bhimavaram Town, Akividu, Kaikaluru, Vijayawada, Guntur and others.
This train will be of much help to the people returning to Hyderabad from their hometowns. Thousands of people leave Hyderabad every year for Sankranti.
