Means bsb gets another new train
What will be the route???
most probably the toute of mys-bsb
Train added in IRI or not
That means PR not available
Via Jhansi or Khajuraho will be more useful...
Pata nhi news shi h b ya bhi
At last some good news from Rly Ministry
Is this true news sir?
If yes then any other info regarding this 😊
Direct train to NZM is in much need from UBL, instead to BSB.
Trains from Hubballi to Varanasi, Mysuru to be introduced
Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha has promised to consider favourably a demand for introducing a train between Hubballi and Mangaluru to provide connectivity between the coastal and interior regions of Karnataka.
Replying to a demand by Pralhad Joshi, MP, at a ceremony to release a stamp brought out by the India Post to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of the saint Hanagal Kumaraswamy here on Friday, Mr. Manoj Sinha said that he would try his best to consider this demand and see
But that has worst timings from YPR to UBL, BGM. I think even people who want to go to BGM dont catch it as it starts very early & it takes too much time.
There used to be a Suvidha Spl which used to depart YPR at 20:45, UBL-5:00, BGM-7:45, that should be regularised.
Also the only reliable train on Sundays from BGM, UBL to SBC is RC, KSK sometimes gets delayed. & Fridays from SBC to UBL/BGM the only train present is RC in the night, getting ticket in Vasco exp is too difficult and it doesn't go till BGM.
SWR has to run a daily SF with timings similar to:
Yes at-least a weekly SF, Friday's from Bengaluru and Sunday's from Belagavi.
Return if it is on Sunday, swr can give slot of Vsg-Ypr from Londa, 22:30 from Bgm
REC not convinced about need for forestland diversion; Railways asked to re-enumerate trees to be chopped
Environmentalists can breathe a sigh of relief, but those seeking better connectivity to the coast may have to wait a while longer. For, the Railways proposal for a Hubballi-Ankola line through the Western Ghats has been sent back.
The Regional Empowered Committee (REC) of the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEF&CC), which met on May 5, has said it is “not yet convinced” about the need to divert 595.64 hectares (5.95 sq. km) of pristine
If talguppa line goes towards siddapura/sirsi then definitely it will join bit more ahead to yellapura, which is part of hubballi-ankola line(non forest area).
So at-least if we not get line through western ghats, this will work to connect Shivamogga-Sagara-Talguppa-Sirsi-Yellapura-Hubbal li.
The 12-year-old demand at last came true and the service is expected to start from May 13
A 12-year dream of employees in the garment & manufacturing industries and unorganised sector workers for an express train between Bengaluru and Mysuru will be a reality later this month. The new train is likely to be inaugurated on May 13.
The dream comes true through a shadow path train of Chamundi Express which will connect Hubbali and Mysuru via Tumakuru and Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) Bengaluru City Station.
Will Hubbali-MYS exp start from tomorrow, no PR from IR till now ???
Suppose to be, but as usual late swr or plans might got changed at end moment. Have to wait till tomorrow for further updates
It will not start tomorrow. Inaugural date pending at RM's end.
inaugural i thought mys, so asked about rakes. because mysuru MP said he will inaugurate right in above newspost?
I thought it UBL as it was starting from Ashokapuram.
"I am trying to inaugurate it before May 13." --- above post. ashokapuram is just a nearby station to MYS right, so they would have no issues. or for inaugural it maybe MYS, later regular run ashokapuram.
