Tatkal Waiting List for today's journey by RC (Train No:16589) is TQWL 82. Is there any chance of attaching additional sleeper coach, otherwise it is impossible for all the 82 Tatkal Wait listed passengers to get berth.

I have seen this action at Suratkal (SL) (as SL is the starting point on Konkan Railway for RoRo service) many times since I board the Karwar SBC Express from this station. One by one loaded/empty trucks will be driven on to the RO RO. I donot know whether the trucks so loaded will be fastened or left as it is. The driver need to be very careful while loading such trucks as the goods platforms are not even and there will be a hump like metal sheet where two bogies meet, on which he has to negotiate.

Visit Ranganathitu Bird Sanctury for dense population of storks, egrets, spoon bills, ibis. Boat ride is also available in the river Cauvery where you can go close to Marsh Crocodiles. It was a thrilling experience. We spotted at least 7 or 8 crocodiles and they were basking on the rocks that came out in the middle of the river. This places is more close to Srirangapattan but very less trains stop here so better to hire a car from Mysuru and visit this place.

Even, there are plenty of city buses going to Srirangapatna from Mysore (Bus No:307, I think) which passes through Ranganatittu entrance and the bird sanctuary is about 800 meters from this spot. Whenever I go to Mysore as a tourist, I always visit this place. Very nice place. I buy a daily pass for Rs.50/- and cover almost all places like Chamundi Hills, Zoo, KRS, Ranganatittu, Srirangapatna and Mysore palace.

Travelling to Shimoga today by Intercity 16201. Want to know the progress of doubling between TK (Tumkur) and Arsikere. Will update the same after returning from Shimoga i.e., 24th Dec. 2016. Last time i.e., about two months back when I had travelled on this route, I had seen that major earth work was over with bridges nearing completion.

Travelled in Bangalore Shimoga Intercity (T.No:16201) on 21st December 2016. The doubling work Tumkur and Arsikere is progressing well. In some places i.e., Tiptur and near Arsikere, they have even placed concrete sleepers lined up near the new track which means they will be placed in position very shortly.

Great! Hope for the completion of the entire doubling at the earliest.
Has the board changed at SMET as Shivamogga?

Did not observe the station Board though I passed by the side of it as this train entered Platform 2 to accommodate Talaguppa Bangalore night express on platform 1. Earlier this train i.e., Intercity was coming to platform 1 and Night express to platform 2. Now it is reversed. The Shivamogga main station is also now operating one battery operated vehicle for those alighting from Inter City. However, this is exclusively for those who cannot walk due to some knee operation etc.,

Its position never changed and remained as it is, since you have booked the ticket for 18th January 2016! and not 18th January 2017 (ha ha). Dont worry it will get confirmed.

This is in addition to Ramanagar bangarpet DEMU, which is a good move by the railways and a passenger friendly decision.

The Karwar SBC Express Via Mysore (T.NO:16524) arrives at Suratkal at 19.04 and leaves at19.06 after a brief halt. But in IRI time table it is showing as arriving at 19.21 and leaving at 19.22 which is not correct. Please correct the arrival and departure time at Suratkal as many passengers boarding at Suratkal may miss the train if they depend on the time table published in Indian Rail Information web site.

Sir, please wait till 24th of this month. I will be getting down at Suratkal on 23rd morning by SBC KWR (Via Mysore) T.No:16523 and find out from the station the actual departure time of this train from the time table displayed at the station (towards SBC) and confirm the correct time. But, I am sure that it is not 19.21-19.22. It is atleast 10 minutes early.

May be after the change in timings from 1st October 2016, it is arriving at Suratkal (SL) at 19.21 as I have not travelled after the change in timings.

On 23rd November 2016 morning I got down at suratkal by 16523( KSR SBC to Karwar express via Mysore) and found out from the time table displayed at station which is ARR 19.21 and DEP 19.22, which is as per the time table of this train displayed at IRI web site. But its coach composition is not correct. It is after engine, SLR, UR, AC coaches and then S1 to S9 while from SBC to Mysore.

As per the official TT it is 19:21.
This train rests at MAQ about 45 minutes and its counterpart 16518 for two hours. Simply waste of time. It can leave 20:30 after amalgamation.

Re# 2061585-6            Tags   Past Edits
You are right. It can very well leave at 20.30 from Mangalore central instead of 20.55 (present timings) and reach SBC half an hour early which is very helpful for office goers and Techies who have to report at office early in the morning. Also, there are many crossings between Karwar and Mangalore which is also the reason why it is taking so much time to reach Mangalore. However, the track doubling (which is going on in brisk phase between MAQ JN and Nantur and if extended till Karwar) will solve all these problems after which probably the journey time between Karwar and Bangalore will get reduced considerably

The 'LADIES QUOTA' being shown in IRCTC website (for booking tickets) pertains only to ladies or it is Senior Citizen quota which can be used both by Male and Female Senior Citizens. OR is there seperate quota for Senior Citizens. If so, how to locate it. Some one please enlighten me on this querry.

Ladies is only for ladies exclusive, but if kid up to 12 years is accompanying her can also be alloted in that quota...Usually 6 Sleeper berths all in one bay are alloted to ladies, AC class usually don't have such separate quota.
Senior citizen quota is different that is only LB for Male and Female Senior Citizens also 45 Yrs+ female travelling alone.
