Illa sir. All passenger trains of IR, irrespective of how crowded or well patronized the trains are, are a loss making exercise to the IR. They're being run to add up on the 'social responsibility' that people expect IR to do.

After speeding up, this train can be easily extended to BGK/GDG, instead of separate SUR-BJP weekend express. I heard even chances of extending this train to BIDR via GR new line after completion. Either of the extension is welcome and will benefit border districts pax.

Presenting highlights from a trip on the Chennai Shirdi Superfast Express from Chennai to Krishnarajapuram. It is the only train to cover the 345km distance between Chennai and Krishnarajapuram, with diesel locos though the section is completely electrified. This train covers the 345 km between Chennai and Krishnarajapuram in 5 hours and 18mins, at an average speed of 65 kmph. Led by WDM3A twins from Tondiarpet, enjoy the Shirdi express'
amazing run as it moves through Northern Tamil Nadu, touches a bit of Andhra Pradesh and finally ventures into Karnataka. Notable crossings include the Intercity barrage from Tirupati, Bangalore& Coimbatore, followed by the West coast express, Yeshvantpur Hatia Superfast, Sanghamitra Express& Seshadri Express. As we near Bangalore, the Double Decker and Brindavan Expresses cross us.

Apr 11 2017 (09:22)   Notice to Railways on plea to operate trains to Karwar on Kunigal line

Entry# 2231210   News Entry# 299211         Tags   Past Edits
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had tweeted thatthe new line would save four hours of travel time
The Karnataka High Court on Monday ordered issue of notice to the Indian Railways on a PIL petition, which has sought a direction to the authorities to operate exclusive daily overnight trains between Bengaluru and Karwar, and Bengaluru and Kannur in Kerala on the recently commissioned Kunigal railway line.
A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice P.S. Dinesh Kumar passed the order on the petition filed by one Sanjay Revankar, a resident of
Kadwad village, Karwar taluk, in Uttara Kannada district.
Pointing out that though the General Manager (GM) of South Western Railway had convened a meeting on March 23 as per court’s earlier direction, and heard the petitioner’s plea for operating the train in the new route, the GM could not pass any reasoned and speaking order till now.
‘Political lobby’
The GM, the petitioner claimed, “is apparently awaiting instructions from the Railway Board, apparently, who is biased and has been throwing a spoke in the wheels for more than two decades... at the behest of the political lobby from Kerala, and also at the instance of a section of corrupt officials, who have developed an unholy nexus with Dakshina Kannada district private bus operator’s lobby for extraneous reasons.”
Pointing out a tweet by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu that the new line would save four hours of travel time between Bengaluru and Mangaluru, the petitioner said the passengers travelling to Karwar could not get this benefit of reduction in travelling time as the present trains to Karwar/Kannur travels on the old route, via Mysuru.
