Alert railway officials averted a disaster by identifying gas leakage in a tanker at the Sakleshpur railway station on Tuesday morning.
Quick measures were taken when they found a gas tanker, that was being transported by rail from Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL) to Bengaluru, was leaking.
The officials alerted the higher authorities and with the help of the Railway Protection Force (RPF), measures were taken to plug the leakage.
to sources, 40 gas tankers reached the railway station at around 3.45 am on Tuesday and one of them was found to be leaking. The Fire and Emergency Services department was alerted, who sprayed water to check the leak. The MRPL officials, who reached the spot at 8.30 am, plugged the leakage.
The tanker was detached and the other portion of the train continued its journey towards Bengaluru.

A proposal in this regard has been submitted to the railway headquarters for approval
Section of speeds of some trains in the Mysuru division of the South Western Railway is likely to be increased and a proposal for the same has been submitted to the railway headquarters for approval.
As per the proposal, the top speed of trains to Nanjangud, which is restricted to 70 kmph at present, will be increased to 90 kmph. This is subject to completion of ballasting which is in progress and the tentative date of completion of the
ongoing ballasting work is June 30, 2017.
The proposal to speed up the train on the section was sent on the railway headquarters on December 30, 2016 and is expected in due course. Once the trains are speeded up, the 25-km stretch between Mysuru and Nanjangud can be covered in shorter duration as against nearly 45 minutes that it takes at present. Incidentally, the four-laning of the highway between Mysuru and Nanjangud has reduced the tedium of motoring on the road and the distance is covered in around 25 to 30 minutes by the motorists.
Similarly, for trains plying in the section between Nanjangud and Chamarajanagar, which has a route length of 35 km, the top speed at present is 70 kmph and the proposal is to increase the same to 100 kmph to reduce the running time of the trains.
The Chamarajanagar-Mysuru trains are the lifeline of the daily wagers from the rural hinterland as thousands of workers with Izzat pass use the services daily and seek employment in the construction sector.
On the Mysuru-Bengaluru section, the newly completed broad gauge double line 6-km stretch between Mysuru and Naganahalli has a speed limit of 70 kmph at present. It is proposed to increase it to 100 kmph and the tentative date of completing the ballasting work is June 30, 2017, according to railway officials.
The Hassan – Sakleshpur section, with a route length of 42 km, has a sectional speed of 65 kmph and it is proposed to increase it to 70 kmph and this is expected to be cleared once the ballasting works are completed in another two months.
Trains on the Shivamogga Town-Talaguppa sections are also to be speeded up and the current speed limit on the 97-km stretch varies from 50 kmph to 70 kmph between different points. This is to be increased to 70 kmph to 90 kmph for which the proposal has been sent to the higher authorities.

It's probably because the Earth below tracks is not fully stable. From what I've heard, it takes some time for ground to stabilize. Maybe that's why they're increasing MYS-CMNR stretch now, though gauge conversion was complete back in 2007.

A goods wagon derailed at Sirivagilu near Edakumari in Sakaleshpur taluk on Wednesday, forcing the South Western Railways to stop Yeshwanthpur-Karwar Express (16515) train at Hassan Railway Station. The passengers, who had planned their trips Mangaluru, Karwar and Subramanya, had a difficult time.
The goods train heading to Bengaluru from Mangaluru derailed around 11.15 a.m. According to senior officials of the South Western Railway, one wagon derailed near Sirivagilu, amidst the Western Ghats. There were no reports of casualty. The rescue team was rushed to the spot. The track would be restored by late evening, SWR officials said.
Yashwanthpur-Karwar Express was stopped at Hassan station around 11.45 a.m. The passengers were told either seek refund of their ticket or wait until the track was restored.
While many took the refund and looked for buses to reach their destination, a few stayed in the railway station. Ravi Kumar, a Tumakuru resident, was accompanying his family to Subramanya. “Fifteen members of our family had planned the trip by train to enjoy the greenery in the Western Ghats. It is now difficult to make alternative arrangements to reach our destination,” he said.
Similar was the situation of Ramesh, a resident of Bengaluru. He was travelling with his family members to attend a wedding in Dharmasthala. He said that the SWR should compensate the loss caused to the passengers. “They return the ticket amount (partially)... but that will not compensate the hardship caused to the passengers," he said.

Reach out the window, and touch some wild flowers. Feel the mist on your face. Gaze on the green of the paddy , as the Bengaluru Mangaluru day train snakes through the `Green Route' of the thickly forested Western Ghats. The flowering season makes the forest burst into colour, along the railway route connecting Kudla with the land of Kempe Gowda. It's the Sakleshpur to Subrahmanya Road Junction stretch that is truly the nature lover's dream journey , with a a string of trekking hotspots.
Chugging through the Ghat section, the train does a steady 30kmhr, compared to double its speed on the remaining stretches. It is here that the landscape undergoes dramatic changes: misty mountains to valleys, streams, waterfalls... as birds
and bright flowers add to the romance. The 52km stretch is punctuated with 58 tunnels, and more than 100 bridges. The train route was closed in 1996 to be converted t o b ro a d g a u g e, which finally opened to freight traffic in May 2006 and passenger traffic in December 2007.
Dinesh Holla, environmentalist and trekker, says there are many trekking points along this stretch. Venkatagiri, Arebetta, Mugilagiri, Ara manebetta, Moorkannubetta and Agnibetta are a few major points which are around 4,700ft-5,000ft above sea level. The Kannikayagundi waterfall, falling from a height of 40ft, is a major attraction.While a few ardent adventurers take to railway track trekking, others opt for river path treks. The best season, say experWhile the rain may add to the romance, travel is not advisable as sheets of water cover the forest, making it almost invisible. The fear of landslides is high too, and threatens to disrupt the journey . The best time to travel, though, is September to May. The day train is available every alternative day from Mangaluru or Bengaluru.
ts, is from October to February , with two days making for the ideal outing.

But sad part is, our SWR is not allowing us to enjoy the beauty of nature by not plying day trains in this route. :(
