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.

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

Karnataka by Udupi Rail Yatri Sangha president R.L. Dias. South Western Railway had undertaken before the court to run the train by March 31.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that he had to boycott the Bengaluru-Hassan new line opening ceremony last month in Mangaluru as the Kudla Express was not introduced the same day. He had told Mr. Prabhu that he would not attend any Railway function till the Kudla Express was introduced.
Responding to MLC Ivan D’Souza’s grouse about Mangaluru Central not being made a world-class station, Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that the world-class concept is not followed at present. Instead, Mangaluru has been chosen in the first batch of 400 A1 and A category stations to be upgraded by Railways, he said.
Mr. Prabhu also inaugurated electrification of the rail line between Mangaluru and Chervathur, doubling of line between Jokatte and Panambur, and railway goods siding at Thokur.
Mr. Prabhu also witnessed signing of a loan pact between Konkan Railway and a consortium of lenders comprising State Bank of India and Exim Bank for a loan of Rs. 1,2000 crore.
KRCL will take electrification of its 748 km route network at a cost of Rs. 1,510 crore. While the Centre will provide Rs. 310 crore, the balance will be met through the loan.

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.
He

is aware that Mangaluru region is bereft of major railway amenities as it is served by the Southern, the South Western and Konkan Railways. Immediately taking charge as the Railway Minister, he had commenced the initiative of creating Mangaluru Railway Division; but it could not be done for technical reasons.
However, he now has initiated the move to relocate Konkan Railway’s regional office from Karwar to Mangaluru. This should culminate in some kind of reprieve for the region, he said.
The Minister said that the flagging off Kudla Express was the happiest movement in his life as he is giving something back to people who have nurtured him. He said that he had clearly told Mr. Prabhu that he would not attend any Railway function unless Kudla Express was introduced.
Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that when he had announced Kudla Express in the 2014 Railway Budget, he wanted it between Mangaluru Central and Yeshwantpur.
He is aware of the difficulties of the people reaching Mangaluru Junction from where it starts at present and has told Mr. Prabhu to get the train to Mangaluru Central, located inside the city. Soon, the train would come to Central and the inconvenient timings of its running too would be sorted out, he said.
Government Chief Whip in Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza launched an onslaught on Southern Railway which controls Mangaluru Central and Mangaluru Junction.
He said that the zone has been indifferent to the needs of the region despite it getting more than half of its revenue from New Mangalore Port.
Mr. D’Souza urged Southern Railway to be considerate to the region’s demand and urged it to introduce a night train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru.
Member of Parliament Nalin Kumar Kateel, Forest Minister B. Ramanath Rai and others were present.
Fare
The fare between Mangaluru and Yeshwantpur is ₹ 130 on Kudla Express, which has second class chair cars and general second class sitting coaches. It is ₹ 85 to Hassan, ₹ 95 to Shravanabelagola and ₹ 115 to Kunigal.

The train should be operated from Mangaluru Central itself, says MP
Dakshina Kannada Member of Parliament Nalin Kumar Kateel on Tuesday urged Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to expedite the introduction of the Mangaluru-Bengaluru Central Kudla Express.
The train should be operated from Mangaluru Central itself and not Mangaluru Junction, he demanded.
Mr. Kateel met Mr. Prabhu at his office in New Delhi and submitted
...

a memorandum. He also urged the Minister to operate the Mumbai CSTM-Mangaluru Junction Express from Mangaluru Central for the benefit of larger sections of people.
The Kannur-Mangaluru Junction-Byndoor Passenger too should be operated via Mangaluru Central and be extended to Madgaon in Goa, the MP demanded.
Tracing the history of Kudla Express, the MP said that the service was announced in the 2014-15 Railway Budget and was included in the timetable also. It was supposed to ply via Mysuru and Southern Railway had confirmed availability of platform and stabling line [for night parking].
With the opening of the Hassan-Bengaluru new railway line, the South Western Railway has now decided to operate the train via the new line thereby drastically reducing journey hours and distance.
Mr. Kateel said that the Southern Railway appears to have not given concurrence to the changes in the schedule of Kudla Express and also had been suggesting to operate the train from Mangaluru Junction, which is located away from the city with inadequate public transport facilities.
Operating services from Mangaluru Junction would be disadvantageous to the public, he said.
The MP urged Mr. Prabhu to ensure that the train operates from Mangaluru Central itself via the newly commissioned route. Its name, Kudla Express, also should not be changed, he said.
Mr. Kateel asked Mr. Prabhu to direct Southern Railway to expeditiously complete work on an additional platform at Mangaluru Central and line doubling between Netravathi Cabin and Mangaluru Central to facilitate operation of more trains.

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.

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.

Prabhu will inaugurate it in the presence of Deve Gowda, who had announced the project when he was Prime Minister during 1996-1997.
It was a frantic week at the Railways last week when they were told to get ready to commence running of trains on March 9. “Station masters, pointsmen and ticket booking staff were posted along the 11 stations enroute and everything was in place to ensure that trains can be run on the route,” said a top railway official.
“The CM wrote to the Railway Ministry conveying his inability to take part in the inauguration due to the upcoming budget and has asked for an inaugural date after March 15,” said E Vijaya, Deputy General Manager, South Western Railways, Hubballi.
Ashok Gupta, Chief Administrative Officer, Constructions, SWR, said, “Both the Railways and the state government are equally sharing the cost of the new line (`1,289 crore).”
When commissioned, it will take an Express train just 10.5 hours to cover the distance between Bengaluru and Mangaluru, about 90 minutes shorter than the present shortest route
