Before establishment of Sevagram railway station, North-South bound trains have to get their engines reversed in opposite direction which was very time consuming process. To avoid this problem, a new station for halting North-South bound trains was established in 1985, named Sevagram railway station. Since then, trains running on New Delhi-Nagpur-Chennai line halt at Sevagram railway station bypassing Wardha railway station. Due to this, passenger crowd is divided in two. Still some trains coming from Ahmedabad and going in south direction have to halt at Wardha station
