I am a regular travel to kukke subhrmanya every year i travel twice , this train after extending to karwar has been never on time to SBHR the departure time is 23:00 hrs but it is always come late by 1 hours worst gets delayed by more than 4 hours , this time it was my worst expreience as i had take my 11 months son to visit but while returning it was delayed by more than 5 hours and also no transportation avilable if u want to return back
From SBHR the last bus to railway station is at 7:00 pm and after that only some autos and jeeps play and they jam pack like sheep's Advice not to take children
...

, ITs better to return by bus and not to prefer train on your return journey from SBHR to bangalore
No waiting rooms , no electricity with no proper generator backup, mosquitoes kills and also lot of small insects roam around since this station is located deep inside jungle and that too its very cold
Also there is one RPF personal there to guard the station and also the duty station staff is not coperative at all worst some passengers asked to give some place for infants to rest in the room which was locked the Station Master refused FYI there were around 200 passengers to board the train on 13/11/2014 all small children and infants were left to sleep on the platform with no proper waiting rooms no water to drink no food at all , there is small canteen which served till 11:00 pm and all the water bootles and tea got finished and he closed and went away and we were all left with no water food and tea and if we need to buy anything we need to go to subhrmanya only also at subhrmany also shops and business close at 9:30 PM only bus stand is crowsded and stall are open till 11:30 pm till the last bus departure to bangalore
ADVICE TO ALL PASSENGERS WHO ARE TRAVELLING FROM SBHR TO SBC NVER TAKE THIS TRAIN ON THE RETURN JOURNEY IF YOU WANT TO TRAVEL GO UP TO MANGALORE CENTRAL AND TAKE THIS TRAIN AT 8pm IF ITS IS DELAYED ALSO YOU HAVE OPTION TO GO BACK AND WAITING ROOMS ARE GOOD AND GOOD HOTEL NEAR MANGALORE CENTRAL.
we had to cancelled the tickets and retun back by a auto which had come to pick up the passengers for the morning train from SBC to SBHR which charged us 450RS to subhrmanya from sbhr station at night around 3 pm
Also when we asked for refund the station master denied and said that train would be coming and its only 2 hours 45 minutes late but the train did not arrive even after 4 hours it only came at 2:30 AM and i did not want to travel as it would get further dealyed on the ghats and in between mysore section
so i surrendered my ticket and raised my voice and should him the refund rules on my mobile which as a railfan saved the PDF after this only he agreed and next morning again i had to go to the station shelling out 50 Rs to and fro to get the refund what waste of time and money
Also when i reached SBHR next morning sharp at 7:30 am the SM asked me to come next morning at 8:00 AM for refund the booking clerk only arrived at 8:30 am in the morning and denied me my refund the train was at the station at right time and when i asked him to check with the SM who was on night duty and i wnet to the SM room along with him and asked the sation master on duty at what time the train left mangalore and what time it reached at SBHR then he sent me out and they spoke after that he agreed for full refund.
Awseome in this journey was the morning pictures of this station which i took when i was waiting for the refund.

You should raise your voice against 2 things
1. Lack of facilities at the station
2. Misbehaviour of Rail Staff on the station.
Senior members should guide on how should this matter be taken ahead.

if you would like to visit Hornadu and want to do a train journey , I suggest catch a day train going to mangalore get down at hassan and the bus stand is behind railway station and catch a bus to hornadu via chikanglur balhonour kalasa hornadu
Option 2 would be take a night train to shimoga get down at Anandapuram from their hornadu is 137 kms for both the option distance is the same or from shimoga go to thirthalli from thier srigneri is 50 kms and Hornadu is 79 kms

year i visit srigneri and hornadu i choose the option 2 take a night train to Anandpuram from thier thirthalli is 56 Kms approx 1 hour and from thier you can go to hornadu or sringeri
Alos on this route lot of private buses play every one hour and the route is quite good

Udipi has good bus facality but the reason is the train is it goes all the way to mangalroe and then back to udipi which is waste of ur time . In this route only private operators play buses to sringeri and hornadu . but here you have to cross the Agumbe ghat and the distance is very small but it takes a lot of time to decend the ghat

Its pooled quta waiting list chances will get confirmed
Also try these options sbc to dd ( Duand Junction ) OR SBC to GR ( Gulburga) and from there u can travel without reservation by paying excess fare since it is morning and after solapur peopel will not allow u to sleep
Also Shidi is crowaded on thu sat and sunday the best option woulld be is to book accomadtion and darshan online so that u have a relax darshan and summer is horriable in March

Yes sir you can very much travel travel with gen ticket in UR coach of the train from SBC to kbl and can occupy your reserved berth at hindupur..
Also you can approach TTE and ask for your reserved berth to be allotted to you from SBC itself by paying difference fare unless its reserved for someone else till hindupur..Very high chances of it being empty till hindupur from SBC since its only around 2 1/2 hrs journey....

Try booking from different quota
For example book from sbc to gulburga and gulburga to kopargoan i think the seats are avilable
i booked fifteen days before for Karnataka express and got confimed tickets

Manish
for the same karantaka express book a ticket from bangalore to gulburga ( kK has a seprate quoto for gulburga and to northbound)
from gulburga to kopargaon it is next day for KK
so book the tickets in this way and search if seats are available
Also
...
more...
if you get confirmed ticket till gulburga you can pay excess fare to the TT and travel till kopargaon normally lot of people travel this way
Further more optiosns you can try
bangalore to daund and then pay excess fare to TT up to kopargoan

i dunno why so many contradictory timings are given, one in indian rail website and a different one in swr website press release and train enquiry. i think the swr press release timing is the exact and realistic one as it has given the timing till talaguppa and moreover the train is arriving only around 5: 30 hrs at smet for past 2- 3 days as per train enquiry website.
