Even though there are not many trains which have official halt in this station 90% of trains coming from Mysuru side halt here due to non availability of platforms at SBC .Be extremely careful while alighting at this station post evening as this station is located in a slum area and is extremely dangerous to go at nights(you will get robbed at night for sure).The main road (Mysore road) is around 500m away from the station premises and nearest metro station mysore road metro station is 1.5 KMs away.Don't alight here at whatever time if travelling with family. Advisable to alight at Kengeri or SBC.If travelling with family

A very good piece of advise and a useful tip for those who alight at Nayandahalli in odd hours accompanied by family.

Why doesn't this train not stop at Jokatte (Mangaluru airport)
It would be of some help for Mangalureans

How is the city bus connectivity to Jokatte Railway Station from Mangaluru Main Bus Stand (SBI or Hampanakatta). I had suggested for a stop at Padil for this train. But, if the bus facility is good at Jokatte, I welcome it. Anyhow, one stop is required in Mangaluru area which is convenient for lot of Mangalurians travelling to State capital.

First run hence occupancy may be less. I am sure, in the coming days the occupancy will improve and it will not be a surprise if SL class will reach WL especially on Fridays from YPR and Sunday night from Vasco as techies will spend their week ends at Vasco and return to work on Monday mornings.

As per earlier TT, this train was suppose to touch both Mangaluru Junction and Mangaluru Central (in its return journey from Karwar to YPR). But, yesterday somebody has posted a news item which says it will not go to Junction and Central Rly stns. Today,I saw its TT which shows that it is skipping both these stations. Of course to maintain its arrival at YPR, some hard decisions were required. As it is a late night departure train, a stop atleast at Padil would have been useful, as commuters from MAQ will have to come to Suratkal or go to Bantwal to board this train.

16511/12 ans 16517/18 can be merged take HAS route, and 16585/86 should be diverted via MYS by taking 20.30 time slot.

This train is not a 9 coacher train now. They have added 5-6 coaches (SL) to accommodate passengers who were earlier going by SBC-KWR express. Still, the number of coaches is less. They should make this train either 20 or 22 coacher.

There seems to be lot of confusion with regard to introduction of new train to Vasco via Shravanabelagola.According to me, the existing train to Kannur will continue to run as usual via., Shravanabelagola for 4 days and via Mysore for 3 days. If my assumption is true, will it be OK to have two back to back trains within a gap of 1.15 Minutes on 4 days and around 2.30 Hours on 3 days. Instead, the Kannur train may be made to leave SBC around 9.30 or 10 PM.

But as per TT of this Train and also 16517 (Via: Mysore), both these trains will touch MAQ. The Train via Shravabelagola will halt at MAQ for 1 hour whereas the Via Mysore train (16517) will stay for just 20 minutes. It is a welcome move as Mangalore Junction is not well connected by City Buses whereas Mangaluru Central is in a walkable distance to Hampanakatta, the heart of Mangaluru. Hope, they will not divert this train from Junction to avoid LR.
