Residents pleased as long-pending project is finally completed
From next week, residents of Hassan can reach Bengaluru by train directly.
The formal inauguration of the intercity train service between Hassan and Bengaluru will be on Sunday, with regular services starting Monday. The train will leave Hassan at 6.15 a.m. and reach Yeshwantpur around 9.30 a.m.
The project was announced in 1996 when H.D. Deve
Gowda was Prime Minister. It took more than 20 years to be realised. “The project or the need for railway connectivity had been raised many years ago,” said M.V. Shivaram, a senior citizen of Hassan. “I have been in Hassan since 1962. All these years, those wishing to travel to Bengaluru by train had to go via Arsikere, a long journey. The project, though announced in 1996, took long to materialise.”
Like him, many people have been anticipating this day for years. Visvesaraya, 73, of Hemavati Nagar in Hassan, travels to Bengaluru at least twice a month to spend the weekends with his children. “Every time, I took Mangaluru-Yeshwantpur train, which is there only three days a week, as I am not comfortable with bus travel. Now, I am happy there is a daily train to Bengaluru,” he said.
The KSRTC bus services to Bengaluru are expected to be affected now. At present, KSRTC runs non-stop buses every half an hour in the morning.
What’s in a name?
Even before the launch of the intercity, there have been a few suggestions on what to name it. Former Shravanabelagola MLA C.S. Putte Gowda has appealed to the Ministry of Railways to name the train after Baahubali, the film character. Animal Husbandry and Sericulture Minister A. Manju, who is also the Minister in charge of Hassan, has written to the ministry suggesting Hasanamba, Hoysala and Baahubali as suitable names.
Raghu Hongere, district spokesperson of the JD(S), on Wednesday told reporters that a few seers from various communities have written to the Railway Minister suggesting that the train be named after Mr. Deve Gowda.

Trip Report of an uneventful journey:
Without having anything to do on a lazy holiday morning, I set out to YPR today to fulfil one of my long-cherished dream of travelling in a Rail Bus. Earlier my idea of travelling the Rail Bus that was running between BWT and KQZ fell through when the Rail Bus was replaced by DEMU coaches. I was all too excited with a recent report in ‘Bangalore Mirror’ about this little bus running on tracks between YPR and NMGA. click here
enquiry with PRS clerk, while buying a ticket to NMGA, confirmed that the ‘train’ is departing from PF-1. The empty rake of 12292 was slowly being taken out of PF-2 for arrival for HWH-YPR SF Express. Since I was not able to see anything in most part of tracks on PF-1, I walked further towards the end of PF-1 and there it was the little Rail Bus, with the engines running and LP and ALP in their positions, all set to depart.
As expected, 12863 arrived at PF-2 around 7.35 and soon after the Rail Bus was given starter signal. There were just about 10 passengers of the a total seating capacity of 71. After sometime, the Bus accelerated and attained a decent speed of about 60-70 (I am not very good at calculating the speed while travelling on/in a vehicle, also I don’t know about the MPS of a Rail Bus). The sound at the time of acceleration was very loud, but not deafening. It might render the sound of your mobiles ringing inaudible, during acceleration. Also, the passenger could feel the jerk and swaying to sides more in a Rail Bus than a regular coach of a train, I felt.
Soon, it entered PF-2 on BAW. On PF-1 was the empty rake of 16569. Of all the passengers, 5 got down and only 1 passenger boarded from here. Later at SDVL, though one passenger, who seemed to be a regular traveller with whom LP seemed friendly, wanted to get down at SDVL, LP asked her to wait and slowed down the Bus a little further from the station, where she wanted to go. Still she was not happy because the Bus was stopped little further where she wanted to go and that she have to walk all the way back through the tracks. .......cont'd
