One more different case is 12629/22685 from Yeshvantapur going to NZM/CDG comes to Daund from Pune side and meets 12627 Karnataka coming from SBC going to NDLS which comes from Solapur side- 12629/22685 undergoes a reversal there and follows Karnataka to Delhi

A big salute to the author of article which recognize our (Railfan's) existence, and educate us about the specific english word dedicated to us! i.e. "ferroequinologist". I hope the author too is a "ferroequinologist" to some extent.

IRly should note that-
Ones fascinated towards trains/ Rlys, and who are called "ferroequinologists" ,
- are also die hard fans of trains - as they prefer and promote trains over other means of transport
- are unofficial brand ambassadors of trains as they popularize the news/features of trains through pictures, talks & articles among masses
always talk, write about and ride on trains.
- dedicated customer of Rlys as they always ride on trains to the extent possible
- always wish for betterment or trains/rlys and suggest for them.
It is hightime that IR should recognize its unofficial brand ambassadors mostly common man, and to have an official communication/ meetings with Rail fans to get vital feed back, inputs and ideas to improve railway system/ trains

Importance of ACTION in REEL Life and
Importance of MOTION in REAL life are
Extremely difficult to undermine as there is always fascination towards moving trains or cars or aeroplanes or boats etc.
way, action films (esp Hollywood & Telugu) are super hit among the masses
The fast trains (HS/SHST/SF trains) are also a super hit among passengers.

Speciality of this train- Crosses branched out Kaveri twice in its journey.. kaveri branches out as 2 near Srirangapatna near Mysore as well as Srirangam near Trichy.. This train has speciality to cross both the branched out versions though it doesnt touch Srirangam station, it does it near Trichy Fort station.

The new service from Mysuru to Hubballi via Bengaluru will pass through 13 districts
The new service from Mysuru to Hubballi via Bengaluru, (train number 17326) was flagged off from the city on Tuesday. This will be a relief to thousands of daily commuters.
The corresponding service from Hubballi (train number 17325) was also simultaneously flagged off through video link by Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu.

The train from Mysuru will depart at 6.15 a.m. to reach Bengaluru at 9.10 a.m, and depart at 9.15 a.m. and reach Hubballi at 7.05 p.m.
En route, it will have stoppages at Srirangapatna, Pandavpura, Mandya, Maddur, Channapatna, Ramanagaram, Bidadi, Kengeri, Yeshwantpur, Tumakuru, Tiptur, Arsikere, Kadur, Birur, Ajjampur, Chikjajur, Davangere, Harihar, Ranebennur, Byadagi, Haveri, and Yalvigi.
Its corresponding service will depart from Hubballi at 8 a.m. and reach Bengaluru at 5.40 p.m. and depart at 5.45 p.m. to reach Mysuru at 8.40 p.m.
The train will ease crowds on Siddaganga Intercity Express and Chamundi Express. It has 16 coaches comprising one 2nd class chair car, 13 general second class coaches, two second class luggage-cum-brake van with disable friendly compartment.
Divisional Railway Manager Atul Gupta said the train will link important centres passing through 13 districts. Pratap Simha, MP, said it was a long-felt need of the people but took herculean efforts to get the services sanctioned.
He said the growth of Mysuru and the railways in the region had made it imperative for a new satellite station either at Kadakola or Naganahalli and he would try to get the facility approved by the Railway Board. Though it was suggested that the train be named Nandi Express, Kadamba Express or Wadiyar Express, it was turned down by the authorities.
Mr. Simha said hence he mooted the idea of christening it Vishwa Manava Express as poet laureate Kuvempu gave the concept of ‘Universal Man’ from Mysuru and it was more relevant than ever before in the present times and Mr. Prabhu made the announcement during the inauguration.

Bad Luck ..... ☹️
I was unable to go the Hassan new line - new train inauguration.
Then came Kudla, that was in MAJN, no luck.
So today made an effort and went to
MWM early at 17:30 waiting to glimpse the new train. Waited ........ Waited..... Waited..... No train..... Just when about to go back... it came at 19:45 with full beam on and no chance of a decent pic. Totally empty.
But alas some consolation was capturing TK and HUP passengers.
1. The new train is the first ICE to be operated by SWR's HQ division UBL.
2. It is the longest intra-zone train of SWR (Originating, Terminating and all intermediate stations are in SWR).

The casualties in the crash of the Island Express at Kuppam railway station last night [May 21] have risen to 62 passengers dead and 63 others injured. First reports had said ten were killed and 50 others injured as the train from Bangalore bound for Cochin Harbour ran into a sand hump at the station. Kuppam is a halt for the train and it is believed the train, running at good speed, could not be stopped due to failure of the brake system. In the accident the engine and the three bogies next to it jumped rails near the outer cabin of the station. Actually the second carriage which was a third class-cum-luggage van bogie was separated from the others and it fell on its side.
