Presently, free Wi-Fi is available at KRS Bengaluru City, Yeshwantpur, Mysuru, Hubballi, Mangaluru Central, and Kalaburagi stations through RailTel. Belagavi station has got the facility under the MPLAD scheme. With each access point covering up to 40 metres, all platforms, passenger concourse and entrance of the stations are covered, according to South Western Railway’s chief public relations officer E.

​Electric trains to start from Bengaluru to Mysuru in 3 months
Trains between Chennai and Mysuru via Bengaluru will go green from June with electrification work between Mandya and Mysuru stations set to be completed in three months.
Bengaluru Divisional Railway Manager Sanjiv Agarwal told DH that completion of electrification work will also cut travel time of Shatabdi Express by around 10 to 15 minutes. The present travel time by Shatabdi Express from Chennai to Mysuru is seven hours.
“At

present, the train runs on electric traction between Chennai and Bengaluru. The electric locomotive is detached in Bengaluru to be replaced by a diesel locomotive. The electrification of the entire stretch will eliminate this process and save time,” he added.
However, long distance trains running to Mysuru from other places will continue with the diesel locomotive. “Changing locomotives at Bengaluru station is time consuming. Besides, we do not have spare electric locomotives to move other trains,” he said.
The senior official, however, said electric locomotives will dominate the future of railways. “It will start with trains originating in Bengaluru and Chennai stations to destinations with electrified tracks. Electrification has been sanctioned in all the directions from Bengaluru, including Tumakuru and Hosur sections. Work on Dharmavaram section is already over,” he added.
MEMU to Mandya
Agarwal said the mainline electric multiple unit (MEMU) train between Bengaluru and Ramanagaram will be extended to Mandya. He, however, said talks were on and the date is yet to be finalised.
SWR officials said electrification work till Mandya will be completed within a month. “The remaining work for the track from Yeliyur to Mysuru (about 40 km) will be done by June,” an official added.
Low patronage
The Shatabdi fare was reduced from Rs 438 to Rs 300 in December. Even on other trains, the 3-AC fare was brought on par with the AC chair car fare. “Despite these measures, travellers who prefer comfort are not taking trains, though they are faster and more comfortable compared to road transport,” SWR Senior Divisional Commercial Manager Sridhar Murthy added.

Hereafter DLS also will accommodate E loco and ELS will accommodate D loco .
Now Gonda DLS has been allocated with a WAG 7. So even KJM may house E loco once OHE works are completed in KJM shed . As of now Erode and Royapuram are taking care of SWR need, they will be continuing the same.

BENGALURU: The huge allocation of funds towards railway safety in Karnataka and electrification of tracks stand out in the 2017-2018 budget. Passenger amenities though have been sidetracked. The details of allocations for the South Western Railway Zone were made public following the release of the Pink Book in Parliament on Friday.
An amount of Rs 724.26 crore has been allocated for the Rail Safety Fund (Rashtriya Rail Sanraksh Kosh) out of the overall budgetary allocation of Rs 3,174 crore, giving a boost to passenger safety in the light of a spate of derailments across the country in the last few months.

the increase in allocation, a statement from the South Western Railway said, “For the year 2016-2017, an amount of Rs 445.15 crore was allocated for the Safety Fund.”
There have been no new trains sanctioned though there was a demand for at least one additional train on the packed Bengaluru-Mysuru section.
The Rs 1,211.75 crore sanctioned for electrification works across the zone is a big step towards improving the traction (pulling power) of the trains (break-up given in box).
“The diesel-run trains will switch to electric which will ensure efficient running of trains,” said Chief Administrative Officer, South Western Railway, Ashok Gupta.
The only new line sanctioned is between Gadag and Yalvigi which is expected to cost Rs 640 crore.
Another new 98-km line between Shivamogga and Ranebennur has been proposed. However, the Rs 1,700 crore funding for it has to be mobilised by forming a joint venture with the state government.
A sum Rs 1,629.6 crore have been sanctioned for ongoing track doubling works. Major allocations among them are Rs 344 crore  for Hotgi-Kudgi-Gadag; Rs 200 crore for Hubballi-Chikkajajur; Rs 140 crore for Arasikere-Tumakuru and Rs 120 crore for Yelahanka-Penukonda lines.

Packed with long-distance trains, all its tracks perennially occupied, the city railway station is not everyone’s terminal. The Yeshwantpur station was upgraded to decongest, but is caught up in operational issues. Can a new terminal at Baiyappanahalli be the game-changer?
Bengaluru’s collective, 33-year-old yearning for a suburban rail network has always had a stock response from the Railways and Centre: The tracks are saturated and its stations, space-starved. Can some smart use of available space free up the existing terminals?
For decades, the city station, now named after Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna, with its

10 platforms, has remained Bengaluru’s premier rail head. Severe space-crunch forced the South Western Railway to acquire a part of the Binny Mill land from BBMP. But a project, sanctioned in 2013, to build a shunting yard there, is still stuck.
Here’s why: No access. A main road passes right across the land, and a plan to build a road underbridge with reinforced concrete cement (RCC) has not worked due to the multiplicity of underground utility lines.
The implications are clear. No shortcuts can work. A long-term alternative, as urban rail analyst Sanjeev Dyamannavar suggests, could be to dig up the entire area, build a proper four lane road and top it. This way, any number of tracks can be laid above, decongesting the city station.
Dedicated shunting yard
Lack of a dedicated shunting yard forces long-distance trains to be parked on tracks between the platforms. The pit lines and stabling lines run parallel to the platforms, blocking trains coming from the Cantonment side. The decongestion by shifting these lines to the Binny Mill land will be dramatic.
To introduce a fully functional commuter rail/suburban network for the city, freeing up tracks between stations/terminals is critical. Consultancy firm RITES had even recommended tripling/quadrupling the lines, so that suburban trains could be run on two lines at a frequency of five minutes during peak hours.
How does this plan fit into the available land between the City and Yeshwantpur terminals? Currently, the two biggest stations of Bengaluru are connected only by two tracks. Any chance of fitting in two more tracks has vanished with the Okalipuram bridge built by BBMP, points out Dyamannavar.
South Western Railway had parted with the land in exchange for the Binny Mill land. The bridge ramps are so designed that they rule out any additional tracks on that stretch. Future expansion is clearly out.
Inter-terminal linkage
This critical connectivity issue poses a big challenge for a seamless suburban network. But the Yeshwantpur terminal has another operational issue to sort out: The railway gate on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) cutting across the line towards Chikkabanavara station.
Due to high traffic on ORR, the police do not allow the gate to be closed for long durations. Long-distance trains from the city station are often stuck at platforms 1, 2 and 3 of Yeshwantpur station.
Unless these trains are allowed to move on to Chikkabanavara, trains from the city station are not given the green signal to proceed to Yeshwantpur. Result: Congestion at both the terminals. The 4th, 5th and 6th platforms at the Yeshwantpur station are occupied by inter-city trains that depart from the terminal.
Opening the road overbridge at the railway gate can potentially solve the problem. Trains can then leave the first three platforms in three minutes, accelerating incoming rail traffic from the city station side and back.
Yeshwantpur terminal extension
Once the operational issues are sorted out, the Railways could ideally think of a terminal extension or even a second terminal. Space should not be an issue, provided a factory that manufactures cement sleeper blocks for broad guage lines is shifted from the far-end of the station.
Railways had even offered a four-acre land to shift the facility outside the city. The move is being resisted. But if the area is cleared, eight to 10 tracks can be planned towards Tumakuru, up from the current three. The pit and stabling lines too could be extended, freeing up more space.
Only two tracks connect the city station with Baiyappanahalli station. But Railways has enough land – about 130 acres - for a full-fledged terminal.
Over the last four years, Rs. 20 crore has been spent to lay additional pit and stabling lines. Tenders were again called and awarded in October 2016 for three platforms, a pit line to clean and maintain coaches and other facilities, inform South Western Railway officials.
Baiyappanahalli project
The Rs 116-crore project envisages building eight platforms, six pitlines and stabling lines, station buildings, foot overbridges, signals and other associated installations.
Foundation stone for the project is expected to be laid in the second week of January. Once the terminal is commissioned as planned some time in 2018, a few inter-city trains are likely to terminate here without heading to the city station.
A full-fledged terminus at Baiyappanahalli, a decongested city railway station and an optimally utilised Yeshwantpur terminal, all linked by tripled or quadrupled tracks could effectively pave the way for a functional suburban rail network.
A sustained, coordinated approach by all stakeholders including citizens could make it happen. But is everyone moving in the same direction?
Linking Metro with SWR terminals
Seamless inter-modal transport connectivity implies helping commuters to switch from Namma Metro to a South Western Railway terminal or vice-versa. It is a reality at Baiyappanahalli, where a bridge funded by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) links the Metro terminal with the SWR station. In two years, the station is proposed to be upgraded to a terminal.
But this connection is glaringly lacking at Yeshwantpur, where the Metro station and SWR terminal are only a few metres apart.Thousands of commuters climb up and down stairs, lugging heavy baggage and cross the busy roads underneath to switch over. The SWR and BMRCL are yet to strike a cost-sharing deal on a bridge that would make it all easy.
Once the Metro phase I is fully launched with the green and purple lines intersecting at the Majestic station, the connectivity with the city railway station will have to be seamless. Currently, the Majestic Metro station has a single exit point, from where access to the city station is cumbersome.
Commuters are forced to walk 200-300 metres, step down to an underpass and climb up before heading to the ticket counters and platforms through another bridge.
A second entrance is from the Metro’s underground city station that leads to the 10th platform of the SWR station near Okalipuram. But it is a good walking distance away. A third entry route is now in the pipeline. This route will help commuters cross the Gubbi Thotadappa Road directly from the Majestic metro station, leading to the city station platforms.

Where is the location of new Byappanhalli station is it in between the space of metro rail and ksrtc terminal in kasturinagar or the line towards banaswadi. If its so then it I'll be 1 km away and how I'll it be connected to metro for seemless travel even the road network seems to be lacking. Due to bbmp lacking of proper planning g they have given land to bmrcl for old madras road kasturinagar road is too narrow which should be at least 100 ft with 2.5lanes on both sides.
