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.
Speaking to Express, S
Ask normal train not hs
Discussing sl topic asking hs rake??

UP followed by Karnataka. Do I notice a pattern here. BBS-YPR route with 3 HS, while 10 train exist already. What a route planning.
No route nothing train was given under ecor share of qouta,as spl was already running they just reg it as hs
Mark my Words. From now to next year, Karnataka will be in Railway news for all good reasons. Be it new trains , extension, doubling, electrification, new project ,etc. And no guessing the reason why.
Just like UP. it will also be benefited!!
If it is so then there should be trains within KA but not to other states or far of places.
If it is so, then we can think of a Dhanbad-Mysore weekly super-fast express.
Ypr - Maq overnight humsafar will be super hit if considered.
KARNATAKA Kudla Express finally flagged ofF
The Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction-Yeshwantpur Tri-Weekly Kudla Express (16575/16576) was finally flagged off in Mangaluru on Sunday.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu flagged it off via videoconference from Panaji. The programme in Mangaluru was attended by Union Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda.
Introduction of the train comes after persistent struggle, including filing of a PIL writ petition before the High Court of
1510 crores for 748 Kms. Isn't it 1 cr per Km? Even considering the problems of KR route, isn't the amount high?
Amount appears to be a bit on higher side, may be due to hilly terrain of KR.
748+ Kms.... Include Loop lines & Yards....
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.
Some AC Chair Car Coaches should also be introduced for the comfort of the Passengers
Effective from Sunday, the Secunderabad-Yeshwantpur Garibrath Express (12735) will have services on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday, instead of Tuesday and Thursday. The train will leave Secunderabad at 8.30 p.m. and arrive in Yeshwantpur at 8.20 a.m. The Yeshwantpur-Secunderabad Garibrath Express (12736) will run on the revised days from April 3; there will be no change in timings. It will have services on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
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.
He just meant multiple runs and not just an up & down run between the cities bro :)
He says journey time should be reduced by 30-45 mins...Already it's taking 2 hour 35 mins only with speed 63... If you reduce by 45 mins then you can calculate average speed comes to 80+ ... Not even Bangalore Rajdhani has that speed
Secondly I think railway will first check patronage.
If patronage is good then itself it will increase frequency.
If you take account of passenger traffic via govt & private bus operators & anticipating rush specially due to upcoming festive occasion, Railways must Introduce atleast one more pair of trains with reverse timetable w.r.t current one.
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.
Inaugural function at 11AM at YPR. Newspaper link:click here
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
Though project took 20 years for completion, the wait for opening after CRS inspection and certification appears to be too long wait
