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.
A proposal in this regard has been submitted to the railway headquarters for approval
Section of speeds of some trains in the Mysuru division of the South Western Railway is likely to be increased and a proposal for the same has been submitted to the railway headquarters for approval.
As per the proposal, the top speed of trains to Nanjangud, which is restricted to 70 kmph at present, will be increased to 90 kmph. This is subject to completion of ballasting which is in progress and the tentative date of completion of the
It's probably because the Earth below tracks is not fully stable. From what I've heard, it takes some time for ground to stabilize. Maybe that's why they're increasing MYS-CMNR stretch now, though gauge conversion was complete back in 2007.
KARNATAKA Kudla Express finally flagged ofF
The Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur Tri-Weekly Kudla Express (16575/16576) was finally flagged off in Mangaluru on Sunday.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu flagged it off via videoconference from Panaji. The programme in Mangaluru was attended by Union Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda.
Introduction of the train comes after persistent struggle, including filing of a PIL writ petition before the High Court of
1510 crores for 748 Kms. Isn't it 1 cr per Km? Even considering the problems of KR route, isn't the amount high?
Amount appears to be a bit on higher side, may be due to hilly terrain of KR.
748+ Kms.... Include Loop lines & Yards....
Minister promises operation of Kudla Express from Mangaluru Central
Union Minister for Statistics and Programme Implementation D.V. Sadananda Gowda on Sunday said that the Indian Railways will strive to respond to development demands from Mangaluru railway region, which, at present, is spread across three Railway Zones.
He was speaking after Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu remotely flagged off the Mangaluru-Yeshwantpur Kudla Express; launched electrification of Mangaluru-Chervathur line; doubling of Jokatte-Panambur line and a railway siding at Thokur Station, here.
Some AC Chair Car Coaches should also be introduced for the comfort of the Passengers
The much awaited train service along the newly laid railway line between Bengaluru (Yeshwantpur) and Hassan will be inaugurated by Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu at 11 am on Sunday. The introduction of Train Number 22679/22680, Yeshwantpur-Hassan-Yeshwantpur Daily Superfast Intercity Express, goes a long way in cutting down travel time for passengers who otherwise had to take trains via Mysuru to reach Hassan and onwards to Mangaluru.
While the inaugural special on Sunday will run from Yeshwantpur to Hassan with open timings, the regular service of this train will commence with effect from March 27. The train has stoppages at Chikkabanavara, Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyuru, BG Nagar, Sravanabelagola and Channarayapatna in both directions.
He just meant multiple runs and not just an up & down run between the cities bro :)
He says journey time should be reduced by 30-45 mins...Already it's taking 2 hour 35 mins only with speed 63... If you reduce by 45 mins then you can calculate average speed comes to 80+ ... Not even Bangalore Rajdhani has that speed
Secondly I think railway will first check patronage.
If patronage is good then itself it will increase frequency.
If you take account of passenger traffic via govt & private bus operators & anticipating rush specially due to upcoming festive occasion, Railways must Introduce atleast one more pair of trains with reverse timetable w.r.t current one.
Presently the MPS is 80Kmph, I too doubt how it will stick to its 63Kmph average with an 80Kmph MPS in the section even though there are no crossings.
already its avg speed is 64 .
Any idea where is the inaugural function ? YPR or HAS ?
Tomorrow 11am from YPR. Inaugural train has no timings.
Inaugural function at 11AM at YPR. Newspaper link:click here
No bookings opened for inaugural run. So public won't be allowed to trave?
