BENGALURU: To make good for the delay in introduction of a suburban rail service, the Bangalore Railway Division recently announced a list of trains to partially cover a segment of the proposed suburban route. In this connection, two Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) services to Whitefield will be run at timings convenient to IT professionals from January 17.
According to railway sources, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will be coming to the city to flag off these services along with three services from here to Ramanagara on January 16. “The trains will be flagged off on January 16 evening and will run a short trip. The actual commercial run will begin the next morning (January 17),” they said.

of the services will run exclusively to Whitefield while the second service will stop at Whitefield enroute Kuppam. Three pairs of trains to Ramanagara, two of them evening trains, will also be launched on that day.
The MEMU to Whitefield will leave Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna railway station at 8.45 am and reach Whitefield at 9.40 am. In the return direction, it will leave Whitefield at 10.30 am and reach KSR at 11.10 am. The second train will leave KSR at 11.20 am and reach Kuppam at 1.45 pm. It will leave Kuppam at 2.45 pm and return to KSR at 5.20 pm. The trains will stop at Cantonment, Bengaluru East, Baiyappanahalli, KR Puram and Hoodi stations in both directions.
“With the Suburban Draft Policy making the state government solely responsible for putting in place a suburban network and calling for new infrastructure solely for suburban trains, Railways is now relived of playing the key role in putting in place the suburban service,” added a railway official.
The services between KSR and Ramanagara will have stops at Nayandahalli, Kengeri, Hejjala and Bidadi.
The timings of the proposed morning service is as follows: leave KSR at 5.20 am and reach Ramanagara at 6.15 am; In the return direction, leave Ramanagaram at 7 am and KSR at 8.40 am.

BENGALURU: If one is exasperated by the slow-moving traffic to Whitefield from the city's centre, one could try this from January 16: The Bengaluru division of South Western Railway (SWR) is introducing a new electric train -a mainline electric multiple unit (MEMU) -in the next fortnight.
The train also connects the city to Ramanagaram, the silk capital of Karnataka, located 50 km from the city on the Bengaluru-Mysuru road.
The proposed train will be a boon to professionals who commute to Whitefield from the city . The train originates at the Bengaluru City

Railway Station. While it makes one trip to Whitefield in the morning at 8.45 am, the train will make three trips to Ramanagaram from the city railway station on six days a week except Sunday . The train also connects Kuppam of Andhra Pradesh from city in the noon via Baiyappanahalli and Whitefield.
Right now, the Bengaluru Railway Division operates three MEMU trains, six diesel electric multiple unit (DEMU) and as many as 27 conventional passenger trains. Each DEMU and MEMU train has eight coaches and has a carrying capacity of over 1,000 passengers.
Earlier, the Marikuppam-KR Puram electric train was extended up to Baiyappanahalli inside the city, and the Kolar-Bengaluru train was extended up to Channapatna, making train travel possible for a greater number of suburban commuters.
As indicated by the #chukubukubeku campaign, there are many more train services that are clear alternatives to the traffic snarls on the city's roads.
As of now, there are 31 train services towards Whitefield, 22 services towards Doddaballapura, 19 services to Mysuru, 21 services to Tumukuru and 12 services towards Hosur from Bengaluru City. Data show that about 65 to 70 lakh people use these trains every month.

A duo of alert keymen on duty who detected a big crack which developed on the railway track of Jollarpettai-Bengaluru section of South Western Railway, signalled to the early morning express (Jollarpettai-Bengaluru) to stop and thus averted a major tragedy in the early hours of Saturday.
According to railway officials at Kuppam, the keymen duo — Mahendra (35) and Chalam (30) — were as usual checking the joints and bolts on the railway track at Kadepalle village of Gudipala mandal near Kuppam railway station.
Though it was around 5.30 a.m., with fog having

engulfed the area, the men on duty could detect a big gap on the track, which was developed due to the weather conditions.
During the last one week, the night temperatures are recording around 12 degrees in Kuppam region.
It flashed to them that the Bengaluru-bound Jollarpettai Express would be arriving on the tracks in a few minutes.
Risking lives, the young railwaymen stood on the tracks in thick fog, flashing danger lights. In no time, the express train came to a grinding halt, several meters away from the cracked track. A wooden block was inserted under the crack, adjusting the 3-inch gap to manageable levels, and the Express was allowed to pass the zone at 10 kmph. Later, the a crew of gangmen from Jollarpettai reached the spot, and completed the repairs.
Senior railway officials congratulated the duo.
