Replacing 15 pairs of passenger trains with MEMU rakes,expanding MEMU shed with more pit lines etc. There is some confusion about sharing 50.50 or 80.20. It may be resolved soon

It is a decade long desire to see electric traction operating on SBC-MYS section. Today a 45 km of electric traction part of 139 kms distance between SBC-MYS is operationalised with MEMU trains. A day to remember

Jan 16 2017 (07:16)   Finally, Bengaluru-Hassan rail line set for commissioning

It was sanctioned by H.D. Deve Gowda two decades ago
No one would have imagined that a project conceived by a Prime Minister would take two decades to move forward. The direct railway line between Bengaluru and Hassan, the hometown of H.D. Deve Gowda, is finally ready for commissioning.
The 110-km rail line between Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola is complete and awaiting statutory inspection by the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) by month-end. A 14-km stretch between Chikkabanavara (off Bengaluru) and Nelamangala, and 42 km between Hassan and Shravanabelagola have been commissioned.
the construction wing of the South Western Railway (SWR), nothing would be more sweeter than completion of the new line, as it had faced several hurdles including land acquisition, fund constraint and much more.
Chief Administrative Officer (Construction) Ashok Gupta told The Hindu that trains transporting construction material are on track already. The CRS would conduct speed trial during the inspection, when the train runs above 110 km per hour to examine the track’s suitability. The railways can operate trains after he issues an authorisation, which may come a fortnight after the inspection.
The new line reduces railroad distance between Bengaluru and Hassan by 50 km via Arsikere and 87 km via Mysuru. Passenger and goods trains at present run via Arsikere or Mysuru. Journey time too will reduce by at least an hour. Consequently, the distance between Bengaluru and Mangaluru will reduce to 340 km from the present 390 km (via Arsikere) and 447 km (via Mysuru).
Unique nature
The new line connects various places of historical and religious importance, including Yediyur (Siddalingeshwara), Adichunchanagiri, Shravanabelagola, and Kukke Subrahmanya/Dharmasthala, and Mangaluru. It also connects commercial places including Kunigal, Hassan, Sakleshpur, and Mangaluru, said Sanjeev Dyamannavar of Praja-Raag, an advocacy group.
Besides introducing direct trains between Bengaluru and Mangaluru, the railways should introduce inter-city trains between Sakleshpur and Bengaluru for enhanced connectivity, he said.
The SWR should also work with CRS to ease speed restrictions on the Ghat stretch between Sakleshpur and Subrahmanya Road stations so as to run more passenger trains between Mangaluru and Bengaluru and other parts of the State, he said.

Bengaluru-Hassan New Railway Line.
New Station: Yediyuru.
I went to one more intermediate station on the new Bengaluru-Hassan line: Yediyuru.
The station building had a modern facade to it. All the work at the station was completed. Even the signal lights had been switched on. Some finishing touch and sprucing up may be done before the inauguration.
The PFs were unique, in that they were located on top of the road under bridge.

If it is not your pic then how you are posting as if it is your pic?
Pls go through site guidelines...
You should say in photo description that its not your pic and give source in pic itself.... Here you are providing source only when other member is asking this is violating site rules.
