MANGALURU: Consequent to commissioning of Shravanabelagola line, services of train 16515/16516 Yeswantpur-Karwar-Yeswantpur tri-weekly express has been diverted from Tumakuru-Arsikere section to Nelamangala-Shravanabelagola section.
Accordingly, service of train 16575/16576 Yeswantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeswantpur tri-weekly Gomateshwara express and that of train 16515/16516 Yeswantpur-Karwar-Yeswantpur tri-weekly express will run on alternate days on same track and on same timings as given below.
Accordingly, train 16515/16575 will leave Yeswantpur
I think that one day slot left in a week, will either get allotted to New Maq-Ubl Exp or to 16565/6 if diverted via Shravanabelagola.
Timings of 56215/16 revised at YPR end from 22nd may 2017
56215 arrival at YPR 1530
56216 departure from YPR 1245
MYS-YPR... Slowed down by 45 mins (b/n HAS and YPR)
YPR-MYS... Slowed down by 15 mins (b/n YPR and HAS)
Mangaluru: Train 16515/16516 Yeshwantpur-Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly express will be diverted via Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola instead of Tumakuru, Arsikere with effect from June 2 from Yeshwantpur end and June 3 from Karwar. There is no change in existing train composition and days of service.
Accordingly, the train (16515) will leave Yeshwantpur at 7.10am and reaches Mangaluru Junction at 5.40pm. In return direction, the train (16516) will start from Mangaluru Junction at 10.55am reaches Yeshwantpur at 8.30pm.
The train will have stoppages at Chikkabanavar, Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyuru, B G Nagar, Shravanabelagola, Channarayapatna, Hassan, Sakleshpur, Subrahmanya Road,
A duronto or Humsafar or some night train is compulsory required between the 2 cities
Starting early by 40 minutes at YPR, taking 2-1/2 hours for Puttur and MAJN and odd arrival time at KAWR will make it unpopular. Logic is totally lacking.
Is 16575 slowed down by 40mins, it departs at 7:50AM ??
Observers believe that by diverting the Yeshwantpur-Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly Express, South Western Railway is attempting to save on one train, since it was bound to run the Bengaluru-Mangaluru day express daily as announced by the then Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda.
Railways introduced the Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur service as a tri-weekly from April 9 and by diverting Karwar tri-weekly Express on the new route, would claim six-days a week service between Bengaluru-Mangaluru, they added.
