You mean Saundatti? It comes to 104 Kms on a straighter path as per Gmaps. But land acquisition and funding and other headaches will take atleast 10 years. First they should complete UBL-DWR doubling, which is held up due to land acquisition.

UBL-DWR doubling is in progress. They are planning for this Dwr-Lokapur line to avoid dwr-bgm direct line and this will bypass bgm by joining directly at kudachi for north bound trains. DWR-Lokapur-Mudhol-KUD :(

Seven stations, including Bengaluru, Mysuru and Mangaluru, have the facility
Very soon, 12 more railway stations in the State would get high-speed free Wi-Fi facility for passengers. Seven major stations in the State have the facility now.
RailTel, a public sector undertaking of the Railway Ministry, is executing the project announced in the 2016–17 Railway Budget. The Railway Board had entrusted RailTel

with the task of installation of Wi-Fi facility at 400 stations across the country in collaboration with Google, under the Digital India initiative of the Union government.
Presently, free Wi-Fi is available at KRS Bengaluru City, Yeshwantpur, Mysuru, Hubballi, Mangaluru Central, and Kalaburagi stations through RailTel. Belagavi station has got the facility under the MPLAD scheme. With each access point covering up to 40 metres, all platforms, passenger concourse and entrance of the stations are covered, according to South Western Railway’s chief public relations officer E. Vijaya.
In 2017–18, the Railways would provide the facility at Vijayapura, Ballari, Dharwad, Hosapete, and Vasco da Gama (Goa) stations in Hubballi division; Bengaluru Cantonment (to be commissioned shortly), Bangarpet, Kengeri, Krishnarajapuram, and Sri Satya Sai Prasanti Nilayam stations in Bengaluru division; Davangere and Shivamogga Town in Mysuru division, and Mangaluru Junction station in Palakkad division of Southern Railway.
Seventeen more stations would be covered in the next financial year. They are Bagalkot, Gadag, Koppal, Londa, and Toranagallu in Hubballi division; Banaswadi, Hindupur, Hosur, Mandya, Tumakuru, and Yelahanka in Bengaluru division, and Arsikere, Birur, Bhadravathi, Harihar, Haveri and Hassan in Mysuru division.
One can get Internet access with speeds up to 1 Mbps for upload and 3 Mbps for download for the first 30 minutes. Subsequently, the speed reduces to 64 Kbps, but, one could access railway-related sites through WiFi for information such as PNR, and train inquiry, throughout the day.

The work of laying a new railway track between Belagavi and Bagalkot has stopped for over week as the authorities have laid a track on a land not acquired for the project. The farmers on whose land the track has been laid have stopped the work demanding compensation.
In Kagalagomb village of Badami taluk, the land was acquired in survey No. 1621 to 5 for laying the track but the authorities have laid the track in the land coming under survey number 1676 forcing farmers to stop the work.

the track in 1.7 acre of land belonging to Hanumanthgouda though they his one acre land in another survey number was acquired for the purpose.Similarly the mother of one Raju Mudigoudar of Kagalgomb village has lost one acre land as the railwyas has laid track in her land while his son's one acre land has been acquired by the authorities.“We had divided the land much before and there are separate RTCs for both our lands. Despite that the authorities have acquired my mother's land,'' Raju said.Kutbuddin Kazi, president, Karnataka Rajya Broad Gauge Horata Samiti blamed the revenue department officials for the confusion.
“It is the mistake of the land acquisition officers who gave railways the wrong survey numbers. Because of their mistake farmers are made to suffer“ he said.
The Bagalkot-Kudachi new railway line was proposed way back in 1911 but it got approval only during Mamata Banarjee`s tenure as railway minister.
The joint survey was conducted in 2011 and work began in 2013. Since then, 33 kilometers of new line has been laid covering the 23 villages in under Bagalkot district. However, the process of land acquisition in Belagavi district is yet to begin.

राजस्थान के मुनाबाओ रेलवे स्टेशन के स्टेशन मास्टर शनिवार को निलंबित कर दिए गए। स्टेशन मास्टर राजूराम चौधरी शराब पीकर ड्यूटी पर आए और फिर गहरी नींद सो गए। खबरों के मुताबिक राजूराम अपना दफ्तर अंदर से बंद कर सो गए थे। यह स्टेशन भारत-पाकिस्तान सीमा के पास है।
राजूराम के इस तरह सो जाने के कारण कई जरूरी काम रुक गए थे और स्टेशन की गतिविधियों को काफी बाधा पहुंच रही थी। इसके बाद अधिकारियों को उनके बंद कमरे में जाने के लिए रूम की एक खिड़की को तोड़ना पड़ा। जब काफी जगाने पर भी राजूराम नहीं जगे, तो उनके ऊपर पानी डाला गया। इसके बाद राजूराम जगे तो, लेकिन फिर नशे की हालत में वह फिर बेसुध होकर सो गए।

हुआ यूं कि पाकिस्तान जाने वाली थार एक्सप्रेस मुनाबाओ स्टेशन के आगे गदरा पर लाइन साफ होने का संकेत मिलने के लिए 30 मिनट इंतजार करती रही। काफी कोशिश के बाद भी राजूराम की ओर से कोई जवाब नहीं आ रहा था। मामले का पता करने जब अधिकारी स्टेशन मास्टर की तलाश करते उनके दफ्तर में पहुंचे, तो वहां दरवाजा अंदर से बंद था। इस मामले में जांच के आदेश दे दिए गए हैं। राजाराम की चिकित्सीय जांच कराने के बाद उन्हें निलंबित कर दिया गया है। सूत्रों ने बताया कि इससे पहले भी 3 बार राजाराम को नोटिस दिया जा चुका था। सूत्र ने बताया कि राजाराम को शराब पीने की लत है।
उत्तरी-पश्चिमी रेलवे के प्रवक्ता तरुण जैन ने राजाराम की लापरवाही के बारे में पुष्टि करते हुए कहा कि यात्रियों की सुरक्षा व तयशुदा रूटीन का पालन करना उनकी प्राथमिकता है।

many parts of railway workforce are bound by large unions, who are backed by major political parties.
a simple act of removing an worker despite having strong reasons to do so (like negligence on duty) may badly backfire at the senior officers.
