The much awaited train service along the newly laid railway line between Bengaluru (Yeshwantpur) and Hassan will be inaugurated by Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu at 11 am on Sunday. The introduction of Train Number 22679/22680, Yeshwantpur-Hassan-Yeshwantpur Daily Superfast Intercity Express, goes a long way in cutting down travel time for passengers who otherwise had to take trains via Mysuru to reach Hassan and onwards to Mangaluru.
While the inaugural special on Sunday will run from Yeshwantpur to Hassan with open timings, the regular service of this train will commence with effect from March 27. The train has stoppages at Chikkabanavara, Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyuru, BG Nagar, Sravanabelagola and Channarayapatna in both directions.

Presently the MPS is 80Kmph, I too doubt how it will stick to its 63Kmph average with an 80Kmph MPS in the section even though there are no crossings.
already its avg speed is 64 .
Any idea where is the inaugural function ? YPR or HAS ?
Tomorrow 11am from YPR. Inaugural train has no timings.

No bookings opened for inaugural run. So public won't be allowed to trave?
BENGALURU: The exact date for the opening of the new railway line between Nelamangala and Sharavanabelagola is yet to be finalised. A proposal to open the line via video link from New Delhi on March 9 by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu was shelved as Chief Minister Siddaramaiah conveyed his inability to take part in the inaugural function at Yeswanthpur. The upcoming state budget was cited as the reason.
The Commissioner of Railway Safety had given the green signal for commencing operations along the 111-km line, part of the Bengaluru-Hassan project, on February 21. Sources said that former Prime Minister Deve Gowda was keen on Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurating it. However, that did not materialise.(see box). Meanwhile, it was decided that Suresh
