Chennasandra - A Ghost Station

Chennasandra - A Ghost Station
Prakash Tendulkar, February 2001


I visited Chennasandra in February 2001. This station is listed in Southern Railway Time Table, 433/434 Banglore - Guntur Passenger stops here, it has a control tower, it is a junction where five tracks converge at two levels, it has a level crossing gate. Everything looks normal, neat in place, except ..... 

.......... this station does not have a platform or a sign board to announce its' presence.

The credit for taking me to Chennasandra goes to Shri S. Srinivas, IRFCA member from Bangalore.

Addendum: Another Railfan from Chennasandra, Karthik M.V., has pointed out that a reference be made that these pictures were taken from Chennasandra control tower and not from the main station.
