Part-2 I was surprised to see 16516 completely empty; there were only 5 people in my coach till MAJN. The train got filled somewhat only in SBHR. Twin GY-WDG4 were attached as bankers to push my train till SKLR. The next part of my route was completely breathtaking, with 55 tunnels and about 300 bridges through the majestic western ghats. The mountains were covered with a green carpet! This section is truly the best railfanning route in the ghats. Just occupy a door for 3 hours from SBHR to SKLR, on the left side of the train. Once... more...
we crossed Hassan, there was a huge slack for the train and arrived before time in ASK and waited for 45 mins to allow the 12080 JS to overtake and proceed to SBC. After a quick snack of idlis, the Bangalore shivamogga passenger entered ASK. As we entered ASK, 11005 DR-PDY chalukya express left towards YPR. When entering YPR, we had to wait for 11005 to proceed towards PDY! At TTR we crossed the YPR-HRR LHB intercity, which was completely empty. This train seriously does not deserve the LHB coaches. We crossed gol gumbaz towards SUR in TK. We were halted again at Golhalli and chikkabanavara due to platform constraints at YPR probably. The mighty SWR Rani chennamma crossed at BAW. Finally the train arrived at YPR at 22.15 on PF# 5.

Train stopping in Ghats for an minute.. Hope tickets are issued to/from these stations. Earlier only down train's used to stop at Home signals of these stations. for Technical reasons.. Now commercial halts as per News.
Not connected anyways by Roads, & hence may be main reasons why Station wasn't commissioned. I heard from somewhere that no Station crews or IR employees where ready to work there... Morever like halt station, with no trains halting.
It isn't abandoned fully, It may be commissioned in nearby future. Official site earlier used to show 'Planned' , but now shows 'To be Commisioned'. & More than that bridges were constructed for loop lines as there wasn't enough land for placing loop lengths.. I have attached pics..
