love u sir for dis :* Great work IRI
There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc.
To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL Train/Station/Loco Pics will be ACCEPTED into the Timeline. You just have to describe the picture correctly, by ticking the appropriate Check Boxes. Pl. see the screenshots.
1. If large TB is visible clearly, you tick that.
2. If both large & small TB can be seen clearly, then tick both.
3. If the photo is clicked from a distance and no details are visible, then tick "Scenic", and leave all other boxes unchecked.
4. If Shed of the Loco is not clearly visible, then leave that checkbox unticked.
5. If the Station Board is not visible, but the pic shows the FOB at the station, then leave the Station Name unticked, but check FOB.
6. If the Road number of the loco is not visible, but the Shed is clearly visible, leave the Road Number unchecked and check only the Shed.
7. If a pic is taken of a speeding loco and number, shed, etc. are blurred, then check "Passing through station", "Front-View", etc. but leave the "Shed", "number", etc. unchecked.
8. If a picture is taken inside the train, then just check "Inside Train", leave other boxes unchecked.
9. The checkboxes need to be accurately ticked. For example, if your pic does NOT show the Loco shed CLEARLY (without zooming), but you check it, then the pic will be voided.
In summary, the appropriate check boxes need to be selected correctly. If the checkboxes are correctly ticked, then your pic will be Confirmed into the Timeline. It will NOT be voided.
As for display of the pics, a mixture of pics will be shown on the appropriate page. For example, in the Station page, we may be showing: 1 picture (selected randomly) showing Station Board, 1 Platform Pic, 1 Picture of the Front Entrance, 1 Picture at the Outer, etc. Similarly, for Loco, 1 picture Close-up, 1 scenic shot, 1 side view, etc. For trains, we may show 1 EOG with Board, 1 Sleeper Pic, 1 pic of inside of the Train, etc.
So, once again, please check the appropriate boxes, and also, add a text description if possible. The MORE the details, the better, since the pic can be displayed in many places depending on the detailed info. If the description is correct, then the pic will be NOT be Voided anymore. It will be Confirmed. If the checkboxes are wrongly ticked, then the pic will be voided.
The feature is not fully ready yet. There are some bugs. By tomorrow, the above scheme will be valid. Also, by tomorrow, we shall have an Edit link for existing TB, SB and Loco Pics, so that the same may be edited by members, and the appropriate checkboxes ticked.

Feb 05 2017 (06:36)   Kudla Express likely to run via Shravanabelagola

rdb*^   126032 news posts
Entry# 2152071   News Entry# 293135         Tags   Past Edits
Kudla Express, the day train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru via Mysuru announced by the then Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda, is now likely to be operated via Shravanabelagola by March-end. The move would drastically reduce the distance and time taken for the journey, from 447 km to 340 km and from 13 hours to eight-nine hours.
As per the timetable published in 2014, the yet-to-be introduced Train No. 16575 was to leave Bengaluru at 8.30 a.m. to reach Mangaluru Central at 9.15 p.m. and Train No. 16576 to leave Mangaluru Central at 6.30 a.m. to reach Bengaluru at 7.30 p.m. via Mysuru.
to conditions
However, the re-routing of the train is subject to several conditions. The first being authorisation by the Commissioner of Railway Safety to operate passenger trains on the newly constructed Nelamangala-Shravanabelagola line. The second being availability of coaches to form the rake for the train and the third is concurrence by the Railway Board to change the route.
South Western Railway’s Chief Public Relations Officer E. Vijaya told The Hindu that the South Western Railway was planning to run the train via Shravanabelagola. Since the zone is facing shortage of coaches to form a rake, the process may take some time; but by March-end the train should run, she said.
Via Mysuru initially
R.L. Dias, president of the Railway Yatri Sangha, Udupi, who has filed a public interest writ petition before the High Court of Karnataka, seeking a direction to South Western Railway to run the train as announced in the budget, said that the zone has told the court that it would start the new service by March 1. Since its route and timetable have been published, South Western Railway cannot change it on its own and would initially have to run the train via Mysuru itself. Thereafter, the board’s concurrence has to be taken to re-route it, he said.
Ms. Vijaya also concurred and said that South Western Railway would have to solicit opinion from beneficiaries of the train. Since Mangaluru comes under Southern Railway and change in timings is involved, that zone’s concurrence too is required, she said.

Most of the route has decent MPS. The bottleneck is the the Shiradi Ghat section between SKLR-SBHR. This section has 1:37 gradients for 55km and a PSR of 30kmph. So trains usually take 2-3 hours for crossing this section, particularly longer in the night time.
This route is a heaven for AC bus operators, but mostly due to lack of trains ( timings do play a role, but as of now lack of trains is a bigger problem than time of travel). The route is also infamous for bus lobbies stopping SWR from introducing new trains on the route. With the new timings, ( if SWR does implement what it is promising ), the train will
have excellent demand. Buses cover the route in 6-7 hours ( I am not sure if there are any faster ones, I have traveled only in these), but there is more than enough demand for trains between the two cities.

Awesome Wow..Non AC Humsafar
Anga SF Express: Inaugural run with LHB rake.
CC: LHB Rake; LOCO-EOG-A1-B4-B3-B2-B1-PC-S10-S9-S8-S7-S6-S5-S4-S 3-S2-S1-Gen-Gen-Gen-Gen-EOG.

B4 was duronto and rear EOG was Humsafar liveried.
SWR - coaches, EOG, PC were old but the rest were 2016 manufactured.
The GEN coach doors had sealed oval glass window, this I am noticing for the first time.
