The travel time can reduce easily by two three hours. Overall running like a passenger, lot of slack time.
Within few months, can travel from Kengeri to Bypanahalli in Metro. Hope so. Can save lot of travel time/traffic jam.

The railings on the escalator entrance at PF5 are broken. And I wonder what is the purpose, if any, behind starting the escalator after a climb of five stairs without a ramp. Defeats the entire purpose.

After leaving SL at 10.20 am, crossed Mulki at 10.30. Then got stuck at Nandikoor. Parked on the middle line from 10:39 to 10:55. A ERS loco was waiting for us. See pic. He left towards MAQ, but we had to wait for the MAO to MAQ DEMU. Could not get a picture of it.
Mangalore is seriously ERS loco territory. All locos seen were from ERS.
