I think that one day slot left in a week, will either get allotted to New Maq-Ubl Exp or to 16565/6 if diverted via Shravanabelagola.

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 wrote.
Though they considered the name 'Mysore Mallige Express’, they abandoned it "because some punster might call
...

it 'Mysore Mellage’ if the train runs late”.
"Eventually, we went literary and zeroed in on 'Vishwa Manava Express’,” Prasad wrote.
"Vishwa Manava’ was the idea espoused by Kuvempu which he explains in an essay: "Every child, at birth, is the universal man. But, as it grows, we turn it into a 'petty man’ (through caste, creed, religion and race). It should be the function of education to turn it into the original 'universal man’.”
The South Western Railway has decided to temporarily augment with one second class sleeper coach for train no. 82653 Yeshwantpur-Jaipur Suvidha Weekly Express with effect from June 22 to September 21 and train no. 82654 Jaipur-Yeshwantpur Suvidha Weekly Express with effect from June 24 to September 23.
Train no. 82653/82654 Yeshwantpur-Jaipur-Yeshwantpur Suvidha Weekly Express will have the revised composition of two AC 2-tier coaches, four AC 3-tier coaches, 10 second class sleeper coaches, one pantry car and two luggage-cum-brake van with generator.
South Western Railway will also permanently augment with one AC-3 tier coach for Train No. 17323 Hubballi-Varanasi Weekly Express with effect from June 2 and 17323 Varanasi-Hubballi Weekly Express with effect from June 4.
Train No. 17323/17324 Hubballi-Varanasi-Hubballi Weekly Express will have the revised composition of one AC 2-tier coach, two AC 3-tier coaches, six second class sleeper coaches, six general Second class coaches, two second class luggage-cum-brake van with disabled friendly compartment.

South Western Railway’s move reduces journey time by just 10 minutes
The South Western Railway’s decision to divert Train No. 16515 Yeshwantpur-Karwar tri-weekly express via Nelamangala and Shravanabelagola instead of Tumakuru and Arsikere reduces journey time by just 10 minutes. At the same time, its decision to revise the departure timing of Train No. 16575 Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Gomateshwara Express from 7.50 a.m. to 7.10 a.m. would extend journey time by 40 minutes.
The SWR on Saturday announced the diversion of Yeshwantpur-Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly express via the shortest route with effect from June 2 from
...

Yeshwantpur and June 3 from Karwar. Instead of the 7 a.m. departure, the train departs from Yeshwantpur at 7.10 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to reach Mangaluru Junction at the existing time of 5.40 p.m. It takes 1.48 hours to traverse 19 km between Bantwal and Mangaluru Junction.
The departure timing of Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Gomateshwara Express has been revised to match the timing of Train No. 16515, where Gomateshwara Express is made to leave Yeshwantpur at 7.10 a.m. to reach Mangaluru Junction at the existing arrival time of 5.30 p.m. (10.20 hours).
However, the diversion speeds up the return journey of Train No. 16516 Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly express.
The train leaves Mangaluru Junction at 11.30 a.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays instead of 11 a.m., to reach Yeshwantpur at 8.30 p.m. instead of 10 p.m.
Similarly, there is no change in the departure and arrival timing of Train No. 16576 from Mangaluru Junction and Yeshwantpur (11.30 a.m. and 8.30 p.m.) respectively. There is no change in days of service and timing of Tain No. 16515/165116 between Mangaluru Junction and Karwar.
Prolonged wait
Sources in SWR pointed out that the journey time of Karwar-Yeshwantpur Express has been reduced by 1.30 hours with the diversion. The trains, both Yeshwantpur-Karwar Express and Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Express, have to wait for a long time to enter Mangaluru Junction Station, which comes under southern railways thereby, lengthening the journey hours. If the southern railways agrees to receive the trains early, the journey hours would be reduced, sources added.
Vinay Kumar, member of SWR’s Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee, regretted that the diversion did not reduce journey hours and lamented that the zone is unresponsive to commuters’ needs.

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.

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 tri-weekly express will run on the new Bengaluru-Hassan line, reducing about an hour of the journey time and 33 km of the distance
The Yeshwantpur-Karwar day train will soon operate on the newly commissioned Bengaluru-Hassan line.
When South Western Railway diverts Yeshwantpur-Karwar-Yeshwantpur Tri-Weekly Express via Shravanabelagola from June 1, the total services on the line will thus become six days a week, including the tri-weekly services of Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur Express.

in SWR told The Hindu that the Karwar day train now runs via Tumakuru and Arsikere to reach Hassan traversing 207 km in four hours.
Upon its diversion via Shravanabelagola, the distance comes down to 174 km and the running time to three hours.
The Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee of SWR had recently approved the proposal to divert the Karwar train via the shortest route and the Railway Board has approved the same, sources said.
New timings of the diverted services are being worked out, they added.
Since the Karwar train will now run on the path of Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction tri-weekly service, one could expect the same timing to be followed.
The Mangaluru Junction service leaves Yeshwantpur on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.50 a.m. to reach Hassan at 10.55 a.m. and Mangaluru Junction at 5.30 p.m. Karwar Express presently leaves Yeshwantpur at 7 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to reach Hassan 10.53 a.m., Mangaluru Junction at 5.40 p.m. and Karwar at 11 p.m.
In the return trip, Karwar-Yeshwantpur Express leaves Karwar on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 5.30 a.m. to reach Mangaluru Junction at 10.50 a.m., Hassan at 4.50 p.m. and Yeshwantpur at 10 p.m.
The Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur Express leaves Junction on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11.30 a.m. to reach Hassan at 4.50 pm and Yeshwantpur at 8.30 p.m.
As a prelude to diversion of the train, the SWR has already suspended advance reservation on this service.

SWR can realign the MYS Dharwad /SMET exp as MYS Dharwad/ Ballari exp with bifurcation at JRU. A separate train from MYS to KAWR/ SMET can be run with bifurcation at Hassan.

Proposed skywalk is in limbo
What was supposed to be a multi-modal transport hub, connecting Yeshwantpur railway station to the adjoining metro station, has turned into spot of chaos.
The railway station — an important hub for long distance and intercity trains — remains largely cut-off from the metro network.
A metro commuter heading to Yeshwantpur railway station would have to cross the busy

Tumakuru Road.
“The busy highway is dangerous to cross, particularly for senior citizens and children,” said Krishnaprasad from the transport group, Praja. Though a 300-metre skywalk was proposed nearly three years ago, the Rs. 1-crore project is stalled due to differences between metro and railways over sharing the cost.
“This should be sorted out at the earliest. The number of commuters using the metro to reach the railway station will go up in the coming days. We have even discussed this problem with ministers, but there is no progress on this front,” said Sanjeev V. Dyamannavar, a transportation expert.
A spokesperson for South Western Railways said the metro should take the lead for the skywalk.
Vasanth Rao, Chief Public Relations Officer, BMRCL, said, “We have arrived at an agreement on sharing the cost. At the moment, the only issue is about the design, which will be sorted out in a few meetings.”

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.
