Vishwamanava Express', and story behind the name DH News Service, Bengaluru, May 27 2017, 2:06 IST
The South Western Railway has named the newly introduced Hubballi-Mysuru train (number 17325/17326) that runs via Bengaluru as ‘Vishwamanava Express’.
The name was suggested by journalist Krishna Prasad, who explained the christening of the train in his blog. “(Mysuru MP) Pratap Simha had called for suggestions. His own picks were Kapila Express (after the river which supplies much of Mysuru’s drinking water), Nalwadi Express (after Maharaja Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar), and Ambari Express (after Dasara motif),” he
Good move. If the person who proposed this name,Mr Krishna Prasad,is our IRI Admin from SBC,we are doubly pleased. Need a clarification from the man himself.
No it may be Krishnaprasad from THE HINDU, Bengaluru. I have not suggested this name, but i suggested NANDI EXP which was running in the MG era between SBC-MYS.
Thats fine Prasad. Thanks for clearing my doubt..It was only a guess :) ..
Yes,I remember Nandi Exp from SBC-MYS departing @2pm from SBC.Wonder why they removed it.
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.

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.
