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 passenger facing any problems.

Paschim Express, 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.
