Due to this rerouting the original Bombay to MP, UP, Delhi route trains

will take another 4-5days to restore to normal. Till then the entire Railway
timetable is bit disturbed.
Some trains that never even said "Hello" to Bhusaval station
now have Bhusaval as key route. Some five star trains like Mumbai-Delhi
Rajdhani Express, Golden-Temple Mail, Jaipur Super fast Express and Indore-Pune
super fast express are being diverted by Bhusaval from 27th June to 02nd
July. Special arrangements are being made at Bhusaval railway station
for latest updates of passengers. A special team has been setup to help

Swarajya Express, Ahinsa Express, Jodhpur-Banglore Express, Ajmer Banglore
Express, Hapa-Trivendram Express and Trivendram-Nijjamudin Rajdhani Express
are the trains that are using Jalgaon as key turning point.

strong benefits to the region?
