By S Lalitha | Express News Service | Published: 15th January 2017 03:37 AM |
Last Updated: 15th January 2017 03:37 AM |
BENGALURU: Indian Railways is all set to introduce three more Humsafar trains for Karnataka shortly. These are GPS based, AC 3-tiered trains with special facilities for disabled.
Speaking to Express, S
S Soin, Additional General Manager (AGM), South Western Railway, Hubballi, said, “Railways will be introducing three more weekly Humsafar trains before March, two of which will originate within Bangalore Division.
The operation of trains though will fall under the jurisdiction of different railway zones and not the South Western Railway. The Humsafar trains offer additional comfort for passenger.”
The Kamakhya-Bengaluru Cantonment Weekly Humsafar Express was launched on December 25 from Kamakhya (Assam) and commenced regular operations from Bangalore Cantonment from December 30.
The new Humsafar trains will be introduced to Bhuvaneshwar from Krishnarajapuram, to Howrah from Yesvantpur and to Tiruchirapalli from Sriganganagar (Rajasthan), said Soin. The Hamsafar category of trains were announced by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on August 17 last year.
Elaborating on its features, divisional railway manager, Bengaluru Division, Sanjiv Agarwal, said, “The trains will have an LED display board and coaches will have sensors to detect smoke and fire. The coaches are disabled-friendly with Braille display.” Bio-toilets, vending machines that can give tea, coffee and soup and newly designed dustbins are other features, he said.
In addition to that, Uday Express (double-decker train) from KSR station to Coimbatore will also be launched. The train will leave Coimbatore at 5.45am and reach KSR station at 12.35 pm. In the return direction, it will leave KSR at 2.15 pm and reach Coimbatore at 9 pm. It will run on all days except Monday. This will only be the second double decker from Bengaluru. One such train runs to Chennai daily.

It would be better if they halt at Hitech city railway station then LPI as it has the required catchment area of KpHB Madhapur Kondapur Gachibowli Jubilee hills in 5-7 km distance. Though an MMTS station they can halt shatabdi as its short rake and has only reserved travellers.

They won't allow trains to arrive before time as there is common line for both HWH and Chennai bound trains for 8 km from gopalpatnam to Vskp station. Vskp is enough of platforms. There are 3-4 trains ahead of it which have to arrive at 1940-2000. Janmabhoomi arrives at 2000 most of days as SBC Guwahati slot of trains arrive in PF 1 and depart at 1935/40 which is dinner stop. When a train leaves from PF 1 the entry to other PF is restricted.

They allows trains to reach before time. Most BBS bound trains arrives early at VSKP. Also leaving PF1 will not block all the lines all cases.
If a train leaves from PF1 goes towards HWH, then admitting train from bza side to VSKP is very much possible.
Its a clear mismanagement at ECoR for many years. Yesterday Kirandul passenger detained at SCMN for 1 hr even though PFs are free at VSKP.
to GPT 3rd line needs and also trains should start parallel like BZA to EE side. They too much load can be reduced as SCM to VZM it has 3 lines.

Being a vizagite pls explain me how can a train enter the pfs when the train leaves from PF 1. Day before yesterday I went to rly stn to pickup from Janmabhoomi at 1940. The ernakulam Patna express left at 1940 and janmabhoomi came in at 2000. When the train leaves from pf1 it cuts across all the lines which are incoming to other 7 pf. I think u are aware of it. I have explained him the same. As its dinner time the slot trains being long distance are put in pf1 which is being followed from many years. While pf 8 s reserved for GR pf 5 for korba exp at 2000. In the gap of that 30mins they need to allow BZA vskp passenger which is always late which goes to NSP/MTM and also rayagada Bza passenger. So literally there is no time left for letting 2035 arrival...
before time. This happens on daily basis. The only case when janmabhoomi arrives DVD at 1900 it was given signal to arrive at 1930/40 on Pf2 the gap widens between 2000/30 to let this train in before time.

Re# 2236860-30            Tags   Past Edits
i can explain, when a train leaving PF1 and take opposite (wrong ) track then train from MAS side can enter into PF. Also if train passed outer then by the time it enters into PF , PF1 train can leave. I have seen it many times. Its all depends on controllers that time.
Also there is no need of allowing passing trains via PF1, its complete mismanagement. PF8 gets almost same facilities as PF1. Originating and destination trains can use PF1,2. Later they can be pulled upto Jnanapuram side and then they can be shunted towards coaching complex when train leave from PF5 or 6. Its very easy to maintain trains at VSKP which is having 8 PF. Also adding
3rd line from 3-4 km will make wonder. Its is as Railways has land to add another 6 parallel tracks at VSKP.
Its all mismanagement by ECoR making a station like VSKP became a bottle neck for many. Until diversion started things happened fine. Later when some trains diverted back, this all issue started of mismanagement.
They just want to prove VSKP is over crowded and trains has to divert. Their main target is VSKP bound trains only, so that people think that diversion is better. Many people tweeting the same with railway ministry. Any ways lets see how many months still it will continue.

Already there are trains from HWH to take care of karagpur if there aren't sufficient then new trains can be introduced from HWH. Let enroute towns/cities also have connectivity which have huge demand and considerable number of travellers ate using road transport. Railways is losing their share of traffic from Vsp up to Nellore because of lack of dedicated train.

What is the use of running a passenger between vskp NLR when travellers want express trains from vskp to chennai and Bangalore. Tirumala is always packed and runs till tirupati and other trains which pass through SCR have feable quota to chennai and Bangalore. SWR has specially designated timings on weekends to see that both sides it used fully. Leaving blore on Friday evening and arriving back to blore on Monday morning.

Wow great proposal will travellers of Chennai be Interested to take longer route with increased running time when they have Raj/Duronto running in 28hrs. Even for intermediate sections timings may not be comfortable and travellers will prefer other trains or modes of transport which have suitable timings. Instead of full AC trains IR should fully reserved trains with 2 2AC 6 3AC 8 SL.
