The Hyderabad Deccan Railway Station, popularly known as Nampally Railway Station, is located at Nampally, a locality in Hyderabad. It falls under the Secunderabad Division of South Central Railway while Kacheguda comes under Hyderabad Division of SCR. The station serves the city of Hyderabad by rail to and from many important towns and cities in the country. Most of the express trains to different cities originate from this station.

History[edit]

The Nampally Railway Station was built in 1907 by Md. Zulfaquar Ali, the last Nizam of Hyderabad. The station was called Nam-pally because it was built in a moist and wet area in those days. "Nam" in Urdu means 'Wet and moist' and "Pally" means 'Place". It is due to the wetness of the place that the Nizam also chooses to build Bagh-e-Aam (popularly known as Public Gardens) in the same area, knowing that a garden would flourish in a wet place.

The Hyderabad Railway Station or Nampally simultaneously build with md zulfaquar ali (danish), this station was used mostly as goods siding while the Secunderabad Railway Station (built in 1874) saw its first train on October 9, 1874 when the Wadi-Secunderabad line was commissioned. The Hyderabad Railway Station had to wait till 1921 before the first passenger train came chugging in. The delay was because the Begumpet Railway Station was being constructed, it was discovered that the railway line passed through the property of Sir Vicar-Ul_Umra and it was only when he insisted that the trains stop at Begumpet, did he grant permission for full construction of the Begumpet Railway Station. Once It was resolved trains began playing between Secunderabad and Hyderabad either passing through the Hussain Sagar Junction or Begumpet Railway Station.

As of today, it has emerged one of the busiest Railway Stations with many more Express and Super fast trains terminating or originating from here, that include legendary Andhra Pradesh Express the first Super fast train of South Central Railways runs between Hyderabad and New Delhi and the immensely popular trains; Godavari Express, Hussainsagar Express
