Alcos are more than enough. 17 coaches. So a WDM3D is best suited to haul this train.

it was made superfast by railway board for users in coastal belt to reach Madgaon for catching superfast train to Delhi from there......most of the people here knew for sure that this train would fail to attract patronage......had it been Mangalore Central Hubli Jn Superfast Express via Madgaon....it would have definitely good patronage if not for coastal belt then for Hubli people.

Hi! This is a requested train from a particular community after application for the same had been sent along with the number of passengers to attend a special grand function at Haridwar. It is a two way special train with the same rake returning back to Mangalore junction some days later.

This train was requested by GSB (Gowda Saraswathi Brahmin) s of Mangalore region to attend the function of thier seer at Haridwar. But Southern Railways have announced this train as Special Train. As the attendees to the function were more than the total accommodation available while booking the complete rake. Southern Railways have decided to run the train as a One Trip Special.

What a lovely TT. Duplicate Mangala on a different route. A lil more aggressive daily train on nearly these timings will run packed not only on MAQ-NZM section but also on NZM-HW.

I recently travelled in this train both to and from Bangalore, the coaches are very good with bio toilets, mobile charging points, comfy seats, and when towards Bangalore, the train reached 5 km to Bangalore station at 8 but was only allowed to reach the destination platform around 8:35 as some other train was present at that platform. It was bang on time at the originating station.

The passengers from or en route to Karwar may occupy SL seats until Mangalore Central, but upon showing the ticket, they may leave the seats for you...generally it would not be crowded.

I traveled between KUDA and SBC on September 4 in S7 and the train was bang on time. Brand new coaches, the seats were comfortable, bio toilets, mobile charging points, a fairly comfortable journey, reached 2 km to SBC at 8:05 a.m. but due to platform clearance had to wait for about half an hour, reached platform 5 at 8:40.. the engine was I believe, WDP4d from mysore to bangalore for this train.....only thing that the railway department should have done while constructing the coaches, they should have installed western commode for the elderly people....should say RM's effect....

and guess what I read today's (November 19, 2012) udayavani newspaper and the railway board has given a green signal for all the coaches of this train to go to karwar (as there has been tremendous response to the service, they are making profits, the newspaper says) and the response has been poor for even that 5 coach train, and they are considering to extend the salem bound bangalore night train to mangalore.

Actually reservation for the train ihas opened only for dec 1 onwards.thats the main reason for poor response.And even if the ype exp via salem gets maq people will find hard to get tickets especially during weekends as ppl book tkt in the this train months in advace as its the only train from clt.If its extended to mlore i dont think ppl will prefer booking tkt 1 or 2 monts in advance as they have lots of busses and also a train with better timing and also the train will run almost empty between clt and maq
