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

ongoing ballasting work is June 30, 2017.
The proposal to speed up the train on the section was sent on the railway headquarters on December 30, 2016 and is expected in due course. Once the trains are speeded up, the 25-km stretch between Mysuru and Nanjangud can be covered in shorter duration as against nearly 45 minutes that it takes at present. Incidentally, the four-laning of the highway between Mysuru and Nanjangud has reduced the tedium of motoring on the road and the distance is covered in around 25 to 30 minutes by the motorists.
Similarly, for trains plying in the section between Nanjangud and Chamarajanagar, which has a route length of 35 km, the top speed at present is 70 kmph and the proposal is to increase the same to 100 kmph to reduce the running time of the trains.
The Chamarajanagar-Mysuru trains are the lifeline of the daily wagers from the rural hinterland as thousands of workers with Izzat pass use the services daily and seek employment in the construction sector.
On the Mysuru-Bengaluru section, the newly completed broad gauge double line 6-km stretch between Mysuru and Naganahalli has a speed limit of 70 kmph at present. It is proposed to increase it to 100 kmph and the tentative date of completing the ballasting work is June 30, 2017, according to railway officials.
The Hassan – Sakleshpur section, with a route length of 42 km, has a sectional speed of 65 kmph and it is proposed to increase it to 70 kmph and this is expected to be cleared once the ballasting works are completed in another two months.
Trains on the Shivamogga Town-Talaguppa sections are also to be speeded up and the current speed limit on the 97-km stretch varies from 50 kmph to 70 kmph between different points. This is to be increased to 70 kmph to 90 kmph for which the proposal has been sent to the higher authorities.

Tirupati passenger has been converted to Express by speeding up 20 mins between MYS and SBC i.e. it will depart 10 mins late from MYS and reach TPTY 10 mins early... But if section speed of MYS and Chamarajanagar is increased.. it can be speeded by 15 more mins

From what I know.... the max speed LPs are allowed to accelerate to....
-
SBC-KGI = 60
KGI-NHY = 100
NHY-MYS = 60
MYS-HAS
...
more...
= 70
HAS-SBGA = 50
SBGA-NMGA = 80
NMGA-BAW = 50
HAS-SKLR = 45
RRB-SMET = 70, but capable of 100.
SMET-TLGP = 60.
UBL-YPR = 100.
-
Of these, I can't understand why the new section tracks inaugurated a few years ago - BAW-NMGA and SBGA-HAS have such low speeds. No proper work has been done in ballasting after inauguration, was what I learnt. Now that new section NMGA-SBGA is high speed, they should look and complete the work, so that BAW-HAS have good uniform speed.

Are you expecting more trains between Mysuru and Bengaluru with the completion of doubling of railway tracks? If your answer is yes, then you will be disappointed. The Railways on Tuesday categorically stated that no more extra trains can be run between the two cities after the completion of doubling of track as Mysuru railway station is unable to handle present traffic itself.
In reply to a question raised by Chamaraja MLA Vasu at the Divisional Railway Users Consultative Committee meeting on Tuesday, DRM Atul Gupta said Mysuru junction is having six lanes with platforms, but is insufficient to handle the present traffic.
“It is a fact that Mysuru is heavily congested. There is no scope for any expansion of the yard since the station is surrounded by built-up area and no further land can be acquired.”
He said in order to reduce the congestion at Mysuru, several options like developing terminal yards at Belagola and Ashokapuram were tried. However, as there is not enough land available and also no scope for land acquisition at these places, it is proposed to develop a Satellite Terminal at Kadakola with facilities like six running lines of 750 meters CSR at a cost of Rs 63.45 crore.

BENGALURU: Indian Railways is all set to introduce three more Humsafar trains for Karnataka shortly. These are GPS based, AC 3-tiered trains with special facilities for disabled.

S Soin, Additional General Manager (AGM), South Western Railway, Hubballi, said, “Railways will be introducing three more weekly Humsafar trains before March, two of which will originate within Bangalore Division.
The operation of trains though will fall under the jurisdiction of different railway zones and not the South Western Railway. The Humsafar trains offer additional comfort for passenger.”
The Kamakhya-Bengaluru Cantonment Weekly Humsafar Express was launched on December 25 from Kamakhya (Assam) and commenced regular operations from Bangalore Cantonment from December 30.
The new Humsafar trains will be introduced to Bhuvaneshwar from Krishnarajapuram, to Howrah from Yesvantpur and to Tiruchirapalli from Sriganganagar (Rajasthan), said Soin. The Hamsafar category of trains were announced by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on August 17 last year.
Elaborating on its features, divisional railway manager, Bengaluru Division, Sanjiv Agarwal, said, “The trains will have an LED display board and coaches will have sensors to detect smoke and fire. The coaches are disabled-friendly with Braille display.” Bio-toilets, vending machines that can give tea, coffee and soup and newly designed dustbins are other features, he said.
In addition to that, Uday Express (double-decker train) from KSR station to Coimbatore will also be launched. The train will leave Coimbatore at 5.45am and reach KSR station at 12.35 pm. In the return direction, it will leave KSR at 2.15 pm and reach Coimbatore at 9 pm. It will run on all days except Monday. This will only be the second double decker from Bengaluru. One such train runs to Chennai daily.

There is no use for Karnataka public, as these are not running via any of the location in the‌‌ state. If rlys are really interested in welfare of Karnataka, they should run trains from SBC to Mumbai/ Ahmedabad via UBL, MYS to Goa via Hassan, Udupi, Goa to Hyderabad via UBL, BJP, GR, MYS to hyb via BAY, RC. Else only eyewash.

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.
He

is aware that Mangaluru region is bereft of major railway amenities as it is served by the Southern, the South Western and Konkan Railways. Immediately taking charge as the Railway Minister, he had commenced the initiative of creating Mangaluru Railway Division; but it could not be done for technical reasons.
However, he now has initiated the move to relocate Konkan Railway’s regional office from Karwar to Mangaluru. This should culminate in some kind of reprieve for the region, he said.
The Minister said that the flagging off Kudla Express was the happiest movement in his life as he is giving something back to people who have nurtured him. He said that he had clearly told Mr. Prabhu that he would not attend any Railway function unless Kudla Express was introduced.
Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that when he had announced Kudla Express in the 2014 Railway Budget, he wanted it between Mangaluru Central and Yeshwantpur.
He is aware of the difficulties of the people reaching Mangaluru Junction from where it starts at present and has told Mr. Prabhu to get the train to Mangaluru Central, located inside the city. Soon, the train would come to Central and the inconvenient timings of its running too would be sorted out, he said.
Government Chief Whip in Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza launched an onslaught on Southern Railway which controls Mangaluru Central and Mangaluru Junction.
He said that the zone has been indifferent to the needs of the region despite it getting more than half of its revenue from New Mangalore Port.
Mr. D’Souza urged Southern Railway to be considerate to the region’s demand and urged it to introduce a night train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru.
Member of Parliament Nalin Kumar Kateel, Forest Minister B. Ramanath Rai and others were present.
Fare
The fare between Mangaluru and Yeshwantpur is ₹ 130 on Kudla Express, which has second class chair cars and general second class sitting coaches. It is ₹ 85 to Hassan, ₹ 95 to Shravanabelagola and ₹ 115 to Kunigal.

The cost of converting each rake to a Mainline Electric Multiple Unit is around Rs. 10.3 crore
Fifteen pairs of trains operating from Bengaluru to various destinations with the conventional diesel locomotive hauled rakes, will be converted to Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) rakes at an estimated cost of Rs. 278 crore.
The 15 pairs of trains have 27 rakes and the cost of converting each rake to MEMU is around Rs. 10.3 crore.

is part of the implementation of Phase 1A of the Bengaluru Suburban Rail System as a joint venture with the Ministry of Railways as per the MoU signed between the State government with the Railways early this year. A source told The Hindu that the orders were issued recently by the Urban Development Department on receiving consent from the Finance Department.
Consequent to the approval the following existing rakes will be upgraded to MEMU and include one rake each of Train Numbers 56231/56232, 56233/56234, 56263/56264 and 56237/56238 – operating as Bengaluru-Mysuru passenger services. The other rakes which will be converted into MEMU operate between Bengaluru-Marikuppam (3 rakes) Bengaluru-Jolarpetai (2 rakes), Bengaluru-Hindupur, Bengaluru Cant- Bangarpet, Bangarpet-Marikuppam (3 rakes) and Bengaluru-Bangarpet.
In addition to this, the Railways have proposed new services for introduction without entailing any additional cost by the State government, along different corridors including Bengalulru to Channapatana which will be extended up to Pandavapura beyond Mandya.
This is expected to commence in due course as the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) has already issued clearance for operating electric trains on the newly electrified 25 Kv AC stretch between Ramanagaram and Yeliyuru on the Bengaluru-Mandya-Mysuru section.
Sources in the South Western Railways said that as the MEMU service already operates between Bengaluru and Ramanagaram, the same train could be extended up to Mandya. Once the electrification of tracks till Mysuru is completed and the power substation at Yeliyuru becomes functional, the services can be extended to Mysuru and this is likely by July this year.
Apart from the above services, it has been proposed to introduce a new service in the peak hours between Byappanahalli and Whitefield. The cost of this will be borne by the State government.
The MEMU maintenance facility at Banaswadi will be augmented at a cost of Rs. 25 crore. Sources said the conversion of the existing DEMU rakes to MEMU will happen over a period of two years and be completed by 2019 as per the terms and conditions stipulated under the MoU.

The train should be operated from Mangaluru Central itself, says MP
Dakshina Kannada Member of Parliament Nalin Kumar Kateel on Tuesday urged Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to expedite the introduction of the Mangaluru-Bengaluru Central Kudla Express.
The train should be operated from Mangaluru Central itself and not Mangaluru Junction, he demanded.
Mr. Kateel met Mr. Prabhu at his office in New Delhi and submitted

a memorandum. He also urged the Minister to operate the Mumbai CSTM-Mangaluru Junction Express from Mangaluru Central for the benefit of larger sections of people.
The Kannur-Mangaluru Junction-Byndoor Passenger too should be operated via Mangaluru Central and be extended to Madgaon in Goa, the MP demanded.
Tracing the history of Kudla Express, the MP said that the service was announced in the 2014-15 Railway Budget and was included in the timetable also. It was supposed to ply via Mysuru and Southern Railway had confirmed availability of platform and stabling line [for night parking].
With the opening of the Hassan-Bengaluru new railway line, the South Western Railway has now decided to operate the train via the new line thereby drastically reducing journey hours and distance.
Mr. Kateel said that the Southern Railway appears to have not given concurrence to the changes in the schedule of Kudla Express and also had been suggesting to operate the train from Mangaluru Junction, which is located away from the city with inadequate public transport facilities.
Operating services from Mangaluru Junction would be disadvantageous to the public, he said.
The MP urged Mr. Prabhu to ensure that the train operates from Mangaluru Central itself via the newly commissioned route. Its name, Kudla Express, also should not be changed, he said.
Mr. Kateel asked Mr. Prabhu to direct Southern Railway to expeditiously complete work on an additional platform at Mangaluru Central and line doubling between Netravathi Cabin and Mangaluru Central to facilitate operation of more trains.
