Nope.. YPR-TK departs at 5:50, JS at 6:10 and 16515 at 6:30 followed by SBC-SMET pass at 6:40.. Out of which only one is dedicated for TK. When you have long distance trains lined up one behind other, this is quite obvious.

A very Horrible train to travel from KTYM to TCR in SL , Traveled in this train from KTYM to SBC, very unwise to travel on a Friday , reserved compartments totally packed with unreserved pax. TTE requests reserved pax to kindly adjust informing all Unreserved pax will travel only till TCR. had to sit 4 to 5 people on the lower berth, all UB very being used comfortably by unreserved pax.

MANGALORE: Passengers of the Yeshwantpur - Karwar Express had a harrowing time at Mangalore Central and Junction railway stations on Wednesday. They were stranded as the train was delayed for nearly four hours.
The train had entered the Mangalore Central station around 8.30 am and remained stationed there for two hours, and thereafter at Mangalore Junction for another two hours. The train left around 1.35pm.
There was no information from the station masters or railway authorities as to why the train was delayed for so long, said Ranjith, a passenger who was on
his way to Karwar.
Two families who had their wards' admission at Manipal University left by taxi with no proper reply coming from the station authorities. When the enraged passengers gheraoed the station master he said that Konkan Railway had not cleared the route and hence the delay.

A 3 year old child fell from the upper berth on this train, a small cut at the back of head and bleeding was all i could see, the child was fine and nothing much except for some drama of get a doctor and all that, nxt station was GTL 20 mins away . Train reaches GTL much to my Surprise , a Lady Doctor , her assistant and a ward boy come inside the coach S6 and examine the baby, Parents rudely say who called you, my baby is fine. Ward boy asks for Rs 80 for the expenses, says money for Diesel of the ambulance. Parents refuse they say i didnt call you, Fight ensues and the result is not clear , what i liked was the response from the Railways side , who called a mystery , why parents acted like that i am not...
sure but if it was a real emergency ...... Kudos to IR

Yes good work done by the railway doctors there. Poor attitude by the parents.People always thinks railways is not duty conscious but passengers are also not so good.

The fight ain't worth INR 80.He should have happily given a hundred to round it off.It was like punishing himself for being lax and imagine if indeed was a serious injury,he would have happily given 10 times over the actual amount.
UPPER BERTH - 3 YR. OLD KID - SAFETY........if that does not ring a bell,god knows what will!!!!

very rude and irresponsible parents. had the accident be more worse and doctors or any medical assistant would not have arrived the same parents would have cried for help and again scolded the railway for negligence.

Fellow Members of IRI,for the First Time 12952 Mumbai Rajdhani touches 140kmph mark in the NDLS-MTJ Route.
Overspeeding WAP5 20 Coach Mumbai Rajdhani Rattles Asaoti in 13 seconds at speed nearly equal to 140.
12952 Mumbai Rajdhani welcomes back the speed zone Asaoti (after 5 months of TSR) in KING STYLE ie. in the most blasting fashion.Led by the mighty GZB WAP-5#30030 ,the 20 Coach Mumbai Rajdhani blasted past this station in full aggression and literally shook me from top to bottom.
coaches disappears in 13 seconds,was perhaps doing around 138-140 kmph speed as per repeated calculations and timing.
1)Length of LHB coaches including buffer:- 24.70m
2)Length of WAP-5 including buffer:- 18.18m
so we have 20 LHB coaches so :- (20*24.70),then adding the length of WAP5,to find the total length of the train :- ((20*24.7)+18.18),now time taken to cross was 13 seconds exact.
So:- (((20*24.7)+18.18)/13 seconds )*3.6(to convert the speed into km/hr) =141 kmph speed approx.
