Jan 27 2017 (09:11)   Bangalore Railway Division comes out with a wishlist for Centre

BENGALURU: With less than a week to go for the first Railway budget in 92 years to be merged with the General Budget, the Bangalore Railway Division has sent across its wishlist to the Centre for inclusion in the Pink Book (the official register of the Indian Railways).
Chief among the demands are a train connecting Hubballi with Mysuru via Bengaluru, three doubling projects and increased allocation for passenger amenities.
Speaking to Express on the doubling projects, Ashok Gupta, Chief Administrative Officer, Constructions, South Western Railway, said, “The doubling of the
...

existing line between Yeshwantpur and Baiyappanahalli via Hebbal will help us run more trains along this busy stretch. The 22-km line will require funding of Rs 170 crore.”
Another doubling line between Baiyappanahalli and Hosur that will cost Rs 375 crore has also been requested.
“This will be a 48-km line and will immensely help passengers commuting between the two cities regularly,” Gupta added. A 41-km second line between Penukonda and Dharmavaram via Nagasundaram that will cost Rs 294 crore has also been sought, he said.
Sanjiv Agarwal, Divisional Railway Manager, Bengaluru Railway Division, said, “To decongest the packed Chamundi Express that leaves from Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) station in the evenings, we have requested a day train that would connect Hubballi to Mysuru via Bengaluru. It is expected to be sanctioned.”
When asked if any more new trains were sought, the DRM said, “It is not possible to run more trains as we have already reached a saturation point. Hence, we have not requested for more.”
The Division has also sought funding to upgrade Platform 5 and 6 of the Banaswadi station and carry on yard-related work. “The platforms are very small and this is posing a problem to trains coming from Kolar. We need Rs 11 crore for it but even if Rs 3 toRs 4 crore is released, we can begin work on it,” he said.
Agarwal also said that Bengaluru was hoping to get more funding to improve passenger amenities across its Division. “We received very less for it in the previous budget and could not carry out many improvements,” he added.
The South Western Railway Zone (Bengaluru, Hubballi and Mysuru Railway Divisions) as a whole received only Rs 33 crore for passenger amenities in the 2016-17 Railway Budget whereas, it had received nearly Rs 90 crore in the 2015-16 budget, pointed out a top railway official. “We are hoping for Rs 100 crore for the SWR Zone for passenger amenities alone so that Bengaluru gets at least Rs 30 to Rs 40 crore allocated out of it,” he said.
Asked about what tops the amenity, the official said KSR, Cantonment, Yeshwantpur and Krishnajapuram stations require digital passenger information boards.

SWR has really gone wrong in setting the TT of New UBL - SBC- MYS Express, It wont help UBL people in any sense, It will rather act as a new FAST PASSENGER...... Instead they could have gone with following TT : as BGM - SBC - MYS SF Express
BGM : 18:30
UBL : 21:30/45
SBC : 06:10/25
MYS
...
more...
: 09:30
I know, the TT between SBC and MYS would clash between SBC and MYS, but would give better patronage to the train between BGM and SBC when compared to a day train between this route with just 47 AVg..... where in a normal train has atleast 53 kmph avg....
NO proper plans are laid by SWR in BGM - SBC section to make it comfortable....
* Adding stops to 12725 and 16590, has make them miserable to travel.....
* A new SF is required to make it comfortable to travel.

UBL - YPR JS - I feel better opt HPT - YPR via GTL
VSG - GHY - Will never be a reality due to Braganza
VSG - PNBE - as same as above
UBL - NDLS - As of now not required, better to run UBL - BSB/ Kanpur / TATA
Mangalore

- Bidar via ASK, UBL, BJP would sound great.
Amaravati to VSKP, Zone issue and Secondary Maintenance issue. as the train might loose time, if extended to this section....
LTT - MAS , Please no circle routes now, Better have BAY - LTT ( via GDG, BJP, SUR, PA) and a weekly from UBL to MAS via BAY
ur judgements are welcome.....

The given train shall cross the 16590 at 1:58 and 16536 at 2:19.
So for the person travelling on the given train the 2 trains (16590 & 16536) are 21 minutes apart.
But actually if 16590 is stationary then 16536 (coming from behind) shall take 21*2=42 minutes to catch it, assuming all the 3 trains i.e. 16590,16536 & the train whose TT is given run at same speed. Relative distance between the 2 trains is 42 minute run.

Had travelled yesterday by this train for first time between UBL SBC.
Train was ONT @UBL, departed 5min late @ 1020pm, loco heading was WDP 4 UBL, Imported one. We reached HVR 3 Min early, which is usually not possible, but due to continuous run and No crossings, could do it.
When I woke up in mid night, train was on JRU ASK double line section, and was really blasting thru the tracks.... almost all crossings between UBL SBC UBL trains are now done in this section, so there was no halt in
...
more...
between for crossings...
One thing I noticed was, this train had got almost all coaches either 2016 or 2015 made, very very neat clean and tidy train.... people traveling by this train are also really kindfull.
Just one thing hurted me alot was, as there was dasara rush, train was jam packed and a father with his small child(some 1 year) was sleeping down the floor, I felt really petty on that small life, WASTE SWR, CAN'T EVEN ATTACH EXTRA COACH ALSO, even though we can't expect special train, but we can atleast expect SWR to make all trains 24 coacher in festive season...
Speed and priority 10/10
Cleanliness 10/10
Punctuality 9/10

After ASK-Chikjajur section has been doubled, the bottleneck has become Tumakuru-Arsikere section, some of day time express trains take 2.5hrs to cover just 100 odd Kms.

Its high time now that Rani Chenamma should be split into two independent trains ie One as the old Rani Chennamma itself but with least stops between SBC and BGM and an another KSR - Dharwad/Dandeli express so that Hubli/Dharwad people and Belgaum people will get their own dedicated trains

Yesterday's run between UBL YPR was one among its superfast... Got the top priority and covered the 470 Kms distance in 7 hours 8 minutes...
Very much happy looking it covered this strech with such good speed... actually it might have OT 16536 and had complete non stop run upto ASK...
I have travelled many times in this train, once it got delayed from UBL and dep at 1125pm, but couldn't OT 16536 reached YPR at 0740... but today it reached 06.33....

Better to avoid this train and its sister 12630 from Dec to Feb... Anytime train can get delayed... once it was delayed by 13hours and was at 1130 Am next day at UBL....
Regular travellers please note, not to take this train if travelling from after Pune onwards...
Prefer Udyan, And for MRJ , prefer RC in advance...
For UBL, best is GG.

I had travelled once in this one, covered UBL-DVG 145kms in flat 2hrs in the complete single line. But it could have been speeded up in the TT.
Any updates on UBL-Londa doubling ?? I was actually waiting for ur updates..
