Second train terminal to ease congestion at Mysuru station R. Krishna Kumar MYSURU:
JANUARY 22, 2017 00:13 IST UPDATED: JANUARY 22, 2017 00:13 IST

station. The terminal has been proposed to come up at a cost of ₹65 crore at Kadakola.
The Kadakola terminal is close to Nanjangud and about 15.85 km from Mysuru, where the Railways has earmarked 55 acres of land – for laying new running lines, besides stabling tracks as well – so as to take the load off the existing Mysuru Railway Station.
At present, Mysuru station handles nearly 43 pairs of trains (including non-daily services). Of these, 24 pairs operate on the Mysuru-Bengaluru section. However, the city station has only three pit lines for primary maintenance of trains and for taking up secondary maintenance. Each exercise requires about 4 to 8 hours. With the existing pit lines fully slotted, new trains or services cannot be introduced without creating additional pit lines for maintenance. Owing to this, the development of Kadakola is perceived to be urgent.
This issue was also raised by Pratap Simha, MP, Mysuru, at a recent meeting with the General Manager of the South Western Railway. Sources said that the detailed plan for the Kadakola station was prepared and submitted to the Railway Ministry for final approval.
The proposed work at Kadakola includes laying of three running lines of 750 m, two high-level island platforms, 2 pit lines of 650 m, 2 stabling lines of 650 m, 1 shunting neck of 700 m in length access from all the running and non-running lines. There is also a proposal to have an inspection car siding line of 150 m and 2 maintenance lines – in addition to pit lines – of 120 m.
The key requirement is water supply for maintenance, staff and passengers but can be harnessed from the nearby Kabini. A new station building has also been proposed to accommodate the entire yard within the available railway land.
Sources say if the existing pit lines at the Mysuru station are shifted to Kadakola, space will be freed up to create three additional platforms at Mysuru and will suffice to handle a higher volume of traffic. Hence, Kadakola could be a maintenance yard with all passenger services originating from Mysuru in future.
City set to become a transportation hub
The development of Kadakola as the second terminus for Mysuru will turn it into a transportation hub as the Container Corporation of India (CONCOR) will commence its work on the development of an inland container yard there.
The KIADB has already handed over land to CONCOR which will invest ₹100 crore in the project. The new container yard will spread over 50 acres and will provide logistic solutions to export-oriented units in the Mysuru-Chamarjanagar-Mandya belt, while catering to Hassan and Chikkamagaluru.
× At present, the bulk of the finished products meant for exports, and the raw materials for their manufacture, are transported by road but the inland container yard will not only enable a smooth shift to rail, but provide a single window clearance with documentation facilities to complete the export procedure locally before being shipped to the ports.

Chennai Mail may go out of service

BENGALURU: The conversion of the Bengaluru-Chennai Mail into a day train until January 25 and the huge delays it suffered over last month have played

havoc with the travel plans of many passengers from the city. With the morning train (leaving at 10 am) introduced on January 11 not having much patronage, the plug might be pulled on the train temporarily.
According to a railway official who has served in both Southern and South Western Railways for the last three decades, “It is the first time that I know of in the last 25 years that we are on the verge of taking the Chennai Mail out of service. Since it used to be an easy overnight journey between the two cities, it used to run jampacked always.”
The problem with the train was due to the foggy conditions in New Delhi causing its pairing train, the Karnataka Express, to have a delayed departure from there. The Karnataka Express, now Train no. 12658, leaves as Chennai Mail from Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna station at 10. 40 pm. Trouble started from December 2, 2016, after which the train started arriving late daily due to the extreme wintry conditions in New Delhi.
“No one knew when the train would arrive. After arrival, it would be taken to the maintenance shed and then readied for departure at odd hours like 2 am or 4 am from the City. Railways was also forced to provide last-minute information and the public remained clueless at railway stations,” said a top official.
The weather conditions did not affect the Karnataka Express much in 2016. However, in 2015 when the weather was extreme, the Bangalore Railway Division arranged a special train and renamed it as the Chennai Mail.
“Though our intention is to provide some kind of alternative arrangement, there is an acute shortage of rakes (coaches) with the division due to an increase in the number of trains run from Bengaluru over the last two years. So, no such provision can be made right now.”
The Railways announced it would be made into a day train from January 11. However, even that message did not reach a few like senior citizen Lakshmi.
Explaining her plight, her relative Sathya said, “She reached the city railway station on January 14 to travel to Chennai to spend Pongal with her daughter. Only after reaching the station, she came to know that it will depart only in the morning.”
Lakshmi’s daughter had to call up a cab from Chennai for her to reach her residence at Magadi Road that night. Lakshmi had to come to the station again the next morning to travel to Chennai by that train.
The day train is not running anywhere near full capacity that the night train had.
Conceding this, Senior Divisional Commercial Manager N R Sridaramurthy said, “There have been many ticket cancellations since December on the Chennai Mail. The patronage right now is not very good. It may be stopped temporarily for a few days”.

Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar Express derailment:
Six deadliest train accidents in past 5 years Updated: Jan 22, 2017 08:56 IST
Seven coaches and the engine of Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar Expressed derailed in Vizianagaram district of Andhra Pradesh on Jan 22.(Twitter/ANI) At least 23 people were killed and over 100 injured after seven coaches and the engine of Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar Express derailed in Vizianagaram district of Andhra Pradesh on Saturday.
The

incident took place around 11pm when the train was on its way to Bhubaneswar in Odisha from Jagdalpur in Chhattisgarh.
“Seven coaches and the engine of the 18448 Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar Express derailed near Kuneru station. Besides the engine, the luggage van, two general coaches, two sleeper coaches, one AC three tier coach and an AC two tier coach derailed,” chief PRO of East Coast Railway JP Mishra said.
Here are the six deadliest train accidents in India in the last five years:
■ Nov 20, 2016: As many as 142 people were killed and more than 200 injured when 14 coaches of the Indore-Patna Express train derailed in Kanpur Dehat district of Uttar Pradesh.
■ March 20, 2015: At least thirty-eight people died and more than 150 injured when the Dehradun-Varanasi Janata Express derailed near Bachhrawan in Uttar Pradesh
■ May 26, 2014: Twenty-two people lost their lives when the Gorakhdham Express came on the same track as a freight train and rammed into it near Khalilabad station in Sant Kabir Nagar district in Uttar Pradesh. Over 50 were injured.
■ May 4, 2014: At least 20 people were killed and about 100 injured when the Diva Junction-Sawantwadi passenger train derailed between Nagothane and Roha stations in Maharashtra’s Raigad district.
■ December 28, 2013: Twenty six people were killed in the Bangalore-Nanded Express train in Anantpur district of Andhra Pradesh after a fire broke out in an AC 3-tier coach. 54 passengers were expected to be on board in the B1 coach completely gutted in the fire.
■ June 30, 2012: Thirty-five passengers were burnt to death and at least 25 injured when a coach of the New Delhi-Chennai Tamil Nadu Express caught fire near Nellore in Andhra Pradesh.
A parliamentary standing committee report, presented in October 2016, said between 2003 to 2015, a total of 239 accidents have happened on the network of the Indian Railways and 208 of these – or 80% of all accidents – have happened because of derailments.
