Mar 23 2017 (07:24)   Demand to flag off Kudla Express on Mar. 26

Only Yeshwantpur-Hassan Intercity Express proposed to be inaugurated that day
Rail users in the State have expressed their anguish over the Railway Ministry’s indifference to start the Kudla Express (Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Central-Yeshwantpur) on March 26 when the Bengaluru-Hassan new line is being inaugurated.
Several rail enthusiasts have been fighting before different forums for the early completion of the new line, which was sanctioned in 1996-97, to reduce the travel time between Bengaluru and the coastal region.
is surprising that the Railways has ignored the key demand of faster connectivity when the line is being opened,” regretted T.P. Lokesh from the Karnataka Railway Vedike, Bengaluru.
Sanjeev Dyamannavar from Prajaa-Raag, a rail advocacy group, in his petition to the authorities concerned, pointed out that the Bengaluru-Hassan and the Hassan-Mangaluru lines were substantially funded by the State government.
Yet, there is only one night train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru and a tri-weekly day train connecting the two major cities of the State. It is regretful that the benefits of public fund are not extended to the common man, he said.
The State government and elected representatives should urge the Railways to introduce Kudla Express on March 26 itself, Mr. Dyamannavar said, adding more trains should be introduced on the sector.
‘No rakes’
Sources in SWR told The Hindu that Kudla Express was not yet approved by the Railway Board for want of rakes (coaches).
However, the Railways would have to run the train to honour its commitment before the High Court of Karnataka to commence the services before March 31, sources said.
Kukke Shree Subrahmanya-Mangaluru Railway Commuters Forum, Puttur, which had demanded running of Kudla Express via the new line, said that SWR should not go back from its proposal. Its convenor Sudarshan Puttur demanded that the Mangaluru-Yeshwantpur service depart Mangaluru Central at 6.30 a.m. to reach Bengaluru by 3.30 p.m. Shortage of rakes should not be an issue as SWR has recently replaced rakes of Yeshwantpur-Bhagalpur Anga Express with LHB coaches, said Abhishek from the vedike. The old rakes could have been deployed for Kudla Express, he said.
Anil Hegde from Paschima Karavali Rail Yatri Sangha doubted whether SWR was under pressure from any lobby.
The Railways should be sensitive to people’s sentiments, he said.

SWR doesnt have rakes to runs trains with in state but has rakes to send specials to VSKP, and other south cities outside Karnataka. What big bundal of lies they are saying. I think full SWR is occupied by people from other places hence no respect to state own demands. Very sad.

Yesterday i travelled to Mysuru by 56232 and returned by 16557. The ongoing doubling near Srirangapatna is in full swing as new two platforms are getting ready and line work on the north bridge of river Kaveri is ready on one track and almost complete on second track.The shifting of armory may take 2 months in my view. The great disappointment is with regard to RE work. Laying of poles is going on between Yeliyur and Mysuru. The power station at Yaliyur is yet to be completed. The RE work on the second line between Yaliyur outer to Byadrahalli outer towards MYS yet to start. In MYS poles have been laid at PF 4,5 and digging work going on PF 1,2 and 3.In my assessment the work may be over by June 2017. A photo of DL near Srirangapatna is enclosed

sir why cant we approach SWR directly or put pressure on them or petition them instead of using MP MLA route. SWR is already donating rakes to other cities by running spls and hope thy first listen to demands from people of their zone..

SWR is very generous, they will let their rake lest in another zone for 24 + hrs when their own zone is begging for intrazonal connectivity during this rush festive zone.

demand was there i agree but why should swr cater to the needs of vskp. I m not against vskp or this train but oppose this swr eagerness especially when its own house people are suffering because of lack of trains and connectivity. It should have been ecor or scr who should have taken care of the needs of vskp population.

Scr has no role here what can they do is just give path.
Ecor running prashanti , bbs kjm spl, sbp kjm spl running with own rake
Swr turns to run a spl, using that rake can run weekly spl too karnataka area too if rake used is independent one

good that ecor is running all those trains because majority of users are that area population only...this swr train runs only 1 hr in karnataka and will hardly be used by karnataka population. Everybody knows its for vskp and enroute based people only. Trains like bbs kjm and sbp etc all carry migrants for the odisa and ap to bangalore, so its primary responsibility of local zone to cater to the demand originating there.
We are begging for extra trains to mys, shimoga, hubli, belgaum, gadag etc and this swr only gives trains to tvc, ers, vskp etc.

OT is not possible because SWR is known to give high importance to passenger trains especially those which carry thousands of daily workers to Bangalore. I think its better to scrap this GR.

Jodhpur Jaisalmer passenger in days of yore. Unscrupulous travel agents are using this picture as Palace on Wheels, whose livery is completely different. Source bing.com and stored on my external HDD quite a while ago. Google is "guessing" this as Palace on Wheels but this is most definitely an Indian train.

ರೈಲು: ಎ.ಸಿ ಬೋಗಿಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಇನ್ನು ಬಣ್ಣದ ಬೆಡ್‌ಶೀಟ್‌
35 Reads
Mon, 01/04/2016 - 01:00
ನವದೆಹಲಿ (ಪಿಟಿಐ): ರೈಲುಗಳಲ್ಲಿನ ಹವಾನಿಯಂತ್ರಿತ ಬೋಗಿಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರಿಗೆ ನೀಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದ ಬಿಳಿ ಬಣ್ಣದ ಹೊದಿಕೆ ಮತ್ತು ದಿಂಬುಗಳು ಇನ್ನು ಮುಂದೆ ಇತಿಹಾಸ ಸೇರಲಿವೆ. ಬೋಗಿಗಳ ಕಿಟಕಿಗಳ ಪರದೆಗಳೂ ಸೇರಿದಂತೆ
ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರಿಗೆ ಬಣ್ಣದ ‘ಬೆಡ್‌ರೋಲ್‌’ಗಳನ್ನು ನೀಡಲು ರೈಲ್ವೆ ಇಲಾಖೆ ತೀರ್ಮಾನಿಸಿದೆ.
ಹೊಸದಾಗಿ ವಿನ್ಯಾಸ ಮಾಡಿದ ಬಹು ಬಣ್ಣದ ಬೆಡ್‌ರೋಲ್‌ಗಳನ್ನು ಶೀಘ್ರವೇ ರಾಜಧಾನಿ ಎಕ್ಸ್‌ಪ್ರೆಸ್‌ ರೈಲುಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ನೀಡಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆ ಎಂದು ರೈಲ್ವೆ ಸಚಿವಾಲಯದ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
ಒಂದು ಬೆಡ್‌ ರೋಲ್‌ನಲ್ಲಿ ಎರಡು ಹೊದಿಕೆಗಳು, ಒಂದು ದಿಂಬು ಮತ್ತು ಒಂದು ಸಣ್ಣ ಟವೆಲ್ ಇರುತ್ತದೆ. ಹೊಸ ಬೆಡ್‌ರೋಲ್‌ನಲ್ಲಿ ಟವೆಲ್ ಹೊರತು ಪಡಿಸಿ ಉಳಿದೆಲ್ಲವೂ ಬಣ್ಣದ್ದಾಗಿರಲಿವೆ. ಕಿಟಕಿಗಳಿಗೂ ಬಣ್ಣದ ಪರದೆಗಳನ್ನು ಹಾಕಲಾಗುವುದು ಎಂದು ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ಹೇಳಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
ಹವಾನಿಯಂತ್ರಿತ ಬೋಗಿಗಳ ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರಿಗೆ ಪ್ರತಿದಿನ ಸುಮಾರು ಮೂರು ಲಕ್ಷ ಬೆಡ್‌ರೋಲ್‌ಗಳನ್ನು ಒದಗಿಸಲಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಬೆಡ್‌ರೋಲ್‌ಗಳು ಕೊಳಕಾಗಿದ್ದು, ವಾಸನೆಯಿಂದ ಕೂಡಿವೆ ಎಂಬ ದೂರು ಬರುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ಹೊದಿಕೆ, ಟವೆಲ್‌ಗಳನ್ನು ಒಗೆಯಲು ಹಲವು ನಿಲ್ದಾಣಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಅತ್ಯಾಧುನಿಕ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆ ಮಾಡಲಾಗಿದೆ ಎಂದು ಮೂಲಗಳು ತಿಳಿಸಿವೆ.
ಆಸನಗಳ ಮರು ವಿನ್ಯಾಸ: ಈ ಹೊಸ ಪ್ರಯೋಗದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಬೋಗಿಯ ಒಳಭಾಗ ಸುಂದರವಾಗಿ ಕಾಣುವಂತೆ ಮಾಡಲು ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರಿಗೆ ಮೀಸಲಿರುವ ಆಸನಗಳ ಜೋಡಣೆಯ ಮರು ವಿನ್ಯಾಸಕ್ಕೂ ರೈಲ್ವೆ ಇಲಾಖೆ ಮುಂದಾಗಿದೆ.

Grievance Description : The special train no.06541/42 was running as bi-weekly between YPR-PVR via MRJ for many months and earlier the same was running as 06517/18 to MRJ. The train was very useful to many passengers and well recevied.

Current Status : CASE CLOSED
Your Feedback :
Date of Action : 23 Dec 2015
Details : Sir, The last service of Train No.06541/06542 Yesvantpur - Pandharpur – Yesvantpur Bi-weekly Special Express was on 25.11.15. The occupancy of this special train was 36% Ex. Yesvantpur and 49% Ex.Pandharpur. It is seen from the occupancy details that the patronization of this train is not encouraging , specials are run only to clear extra rush during festival/summer season. Moreover, not for the entire year. Hence the services is discontinued. Thanking you,

Dec 13 2015 (09:07)   Kannada absent on ticket vending machines

If one attempts to buy an unreserved railway ticket through the automated ticket vending machines (ATVMs) installed at Mangaluru Central Railway Station, one might get the feeling of being in Kerala.
Because, the machine neither displays Kannada nor exhibits train routes in Karnataka. It displays information in Malayalam, Hindi and English.
The routes of trains displayed are all in Kerala too with no information about those on the Hassan and Karwar sections in Karnataka.
former district Kannada Sahitya Parishat president Pradeep Kumar Kalkura told The Hindu that he would write to the authorities to introduce Kannada immediately on these machines.
“The absence of Kannada cannot be accepted at any cost and goes against the tri-language policy,” he said adding he would not have any objection for Malayam being present.
The parishat had been conducting special Kannada classes for non-Kannadiga employees of Southern Railway working in Mangaluru region, Mr. Kalkura pointed out.
At the same time, there has been lukewarm response from travelling public to get smart cards to buy unreserved tickets from ATVMs. Of the 25 such cards provided to Mangaluru Central Railway Station, only three have been bought by the public while an attendant helping people to buy tickets through the machine is given eight cards.
On an average, the attendant dispenses about 750 unreserved tickets every day, contributing to the total sale of over 7,000 unreserved tickets at Mangaluru Central, sources in the Railways told The Hindu .
Two automatic ticket vending machines are installed at Mangaluru Central Railway Station
The ATVMs do not display information in Kannada; but have Malayalam, Hindi and English
Even route maps are of just Kerala; no maps of Hassan and Karwar sections
Only three smart cards had been brought to use ATVMs
An attendant helps passengers to buy tickets through ATVs
An average 7,000 ordinary tickets are issued at Mangaluru Central
Through the ATVMs, about 750 tickets are issued

Bengaluru is always excess hospitable to other languages but never get the same treatment from others in return. Always this is the case. Mangalore should quickly be given to KR or SWR as it hurts the sentiments of the people.
