Earlier, the 6.30 Passenger to Hubballi had half portion Shimoga coaches which were bifurcated at Birur (back 10 or 12 coaches). The main train with Hubli coaches used to go to Hubli and another loco used to take the coaches meant for Shimoga. Has this been discontinued? In the time table of Bangalore Shimoga trains, there is no mention of this. In its return journey it used to leave Shimoga at 2.15 PM. There is no mention of this train in the return journey also. Some one please throw light on this.

Good to see one more night train to Shivamogga. We have to wait for a few days for its pucca timings. However, better if it departs from Bengaluru at 12.00 Mid Night, because Bengaluru Talaguppa leaves at 11.00 PM and two back to back trains within half an hour is not good. Good to see that Shivamogga is getting good priority with regard to introduction of new trains. About 6 months back YPR Shivamogga day express was introduced with LHB coaches (though only 3 days in a week) and now this.

SMET should also get pitlines which would help it to connect trains to other parts of KA like BGM/Vijayapura/Gulbarga.

Tatkal Waiting List for today's journey by RC (Train No:16589) is TQWL 82. Is there any chance of attaching additional sleeper coach, otherwise it is impossible for all the 82 Tatkal Wait listed passengers to get berth.

Re# 2117149-1            Tags   Past Edits
I have seen this action at Suratkal (SL) (as SL is the starting point on Konkan Railway for RoRo service) many times since I board the Karwar SBC Express from this station. One by one loaded/empty trucks will be driven on to the RO RO. I donot know whether the trucks so loaded will be fastened or left as it is. The driver need to be very careful while loading such trucks as the goods platforms are not even and there will be a hump like metal sheet where two bogies meet, on which he has to negotiate.

Visit Ranganathitu Bird Sanctury for dense population of storks, egrets, spoon bills, ibis. Boat ride is also available in the river Cauvery where you can go close to Marsh Crocodiles. It was a thrilling experience. We spotted at least 7 or 8 crocodiles and they were basking on the rocks that came out in the middle of the river. This places is more close to Srirangapattan but very less trains stop here so better to hire a car from Mysuru and visit this place.

Even, there are plenty of city buses going to Srirangapatna from Mysore (Bus No:307, I think) which passes through Ranganatittu entrance and the bird sanctuary is about 800 meters from this spot. Whenever I go to Mysore as a tourist, I always visit this place. Very nice place. I buy a daily pass for Rs.50/- and cover almost all places like Chamundi Hills, Zoo, KRS, Ranganatittu, Srirangapatna and Mysore palace.

Travelling to Shimoga today by Intercity 16201. Want to know the progress of doubling between TK (Tumkur) and Arsikere. Will update the same after returning from Shimoga i.e., 24th Dec. 2016. Last time i.e., about two months back when I had travelled on this route, I had seen that major earth work was over with bridges nearing completion.

Travelled in Bangalore Shimoga Intercity (T.No:16201) on 21st December 2016. The doubling work Tumkur and Arsikere is progressing well. In some places i.e., Tiptur and near Arsikere, they have even placed concrete sleepers lined up near the new track which means they will be placed in position very shortly.

Great! Hope for the completion of the entire doubling at the earliest.
Has the board changed at SMET as Shivamogga?

Did not observe the station Board though I passed by the side of it as this train entered Platform 2 to accommodate Talaguppa Bangalore night express on platform 1. Earlier this train i.e., Intercity was coming to platform 1 and Night express to platform 2. Now it is reversed. The Shivamogga main station is also now operating one battery operated vehicle for those alighting from Inter City. However, this is exclusively for those who cannot walk due to some knee operation etc.,
