May 05 2017 (09:30)   Sadananda Gowda proposes (Kudla), Suresh Prabhu disposes (Gomateshwara)

MANGALURU: What is in a (train's) name? A lot if it involves one railway minister naming it and his successor renaming the same. This is the fate of train 16575/576 Yesvantpur-Mangaluru junction-Yesvantpur tri-weekly express. Announced by then railway minister D V Sadananda Gowda in the only railway budget that he presented, he christened it Kudla Express when the minister came lay foundation stone for a road under bridge in lieu of a level crossing on August 16, 2014.
An official notification renaming Kudla Express as Gomateshwara Express came on May 3 much to the chagrin of the locals. Already peeved that the train initially scheduled to run up to Mangaluru Central is being terminated at Mangaluru junction, the latest move has agitated

them further. This was manifested in a protest that Tulunada Rakshana Vedike staged on Thursday. The vedike termed the latest decision as an attempt by Indian Railways to attack local sentiments.
Averring that the Vedike is not against the Jain saint Gomateshwara and naming the train after him, Yogish Shetty Jeppu, president of the vedike said, "Railways may name any other train as Gomateshwara Express. Changing name of a train for political considerations is an unpardonable act," he said, adding the name has been changed on request from former PM H D Deve Gowda at the newly commissioned Bengaluru-Hassan line at Yesvantpur on March 26.
What makes this renaming exercise all the more curious is an admission by South Western Railway (SWR) officials that it was done at the insistence of railway minister Suresh Prabhu. SWR was aware that Sadananda Gowda had named it Kudla Express as the city is referred to in Tulu. The zonal railway was also not oblivious to the fact that the locals referred to the train as Kudla Express even before its introduction on April 9 and its formal run from the following day.
This is also against the normal practice of Indian Railways to name trains by their originating place and or local personalities. Incidentally, Deve Gowda at the March 26 function had urged Suresh Prabhu to name Mangaluru Express as Gomateshwara Express and Hassan Intercity Express as Kalabhairava Express, a suggestion that Suresh Prabhu accepted on the spot. A bewildered Sadananda Gowda told TOI, "I will get the facts from Suresh Prabhu before reacting.

Dibrugarh-Guwahati Shatabdi Express would fulfil that demand of the people,” said Gohain while flagging off the train. The Shatabdi Express trains are among the fastest and most prestigious trains of the Indian Railways along with Rajdhani and Duronto trains which connect metro cities with other important cities from the point of view of tourism, pilgrimage or business.
“The train would have latest fully air-conditioned LHB Coaches to provide safety and extra comfort. Travellers would be provided with bottled water, juice, coffee or tea, and meals relevant to time of day of the journey,” said the minister.
He also called upon the people of the region, especially the rail users, to take care of railway property and consider it to be their own. He appealed to the people not to damage the interior or exterior of a beautiful train like Shatabdi and keep it clean.
Saying that Prime Minister Narendra Modi placed special emphasis on the development of the northeastern region, Gohain assured the state that the Railways would continue to work for development in the region.
The train will have 10 AC Chair Car coaches and 2 luggage-cum-generator cars. The train will have seven intermediate stoppages. The total fare, which includes charges for food, for one adult passenger from Guwahati to Dibrugarh will be Rs 1,095 and between Dibrugarh and Guwahati will be Rs 1,010.

The work, which began in 2016, is being executed in a phased manner
Southern Railway has started gauge conversion of the Tiruvarur-Pattukottai-Aranthangi-Karaikudi line near the Tiruthuraipoondi segment, the last stretch of metre gauge section to be upgraded into broad gauge.
The work, which began in 2016, is being executed in a phased manner, as the construction includes a large number of small, medium and big culverts and bridges. The stretch is seen as a major segment as it caters to needs of students, office-goers and traders.
The

168 km-cumulative length of the track encompasses Tiruthuraipoondi, Muthupettai, Adhiramapattinam, Pattukottai, Peravurani and Aranthangi.
The track became operational on October 20, 1902 and the last train chugged through it till October 2012.
In the first phase of conversion, several culverts and bridges were constructed. It was followed by removal of railings and sleeper blocks. The track passes through the coastal area of Aranthangi necessitating the construction of around 30 major bridges and 250 culverts.
At Tiruthuraipoondi, the railway platforms were totally demolished and the railings removed.
The foot over bridge was demolished paving the way for its renovation.

Mar 10 2017 (09:20)   Loco trial run conducted on Pollachi - Kinathukkadavu section

Kings of IR 12622 and 12002~   7 news posts

The locomotive trial run of a diesel engine at 45 kmph on the newly converted broad gauge line between Pollachi and Kinathukkadadvu appears to be a gleam of hope for restoring a direct and shortest rail connectivity between the Southern and Western Tamil Nadu.
The construction wing officials of Southern Railway led by Deputy Chief Engineer R. Ramakrishnaa oversaw the trial run of the diesel locomotive covering the 21 km stretch in an approximate 30 to 40 minutes time. The trial run commenced at Pollachi at 1.10 p.m. and the locomotive reached Kinathukkadavu at 1.50 p.m. In the return direction, the locomotive started at 2.05 p.m. and reached Pollachi at 2.35 p.m.

present, signalling works and track laying for 1.5 km stretch between Podanur and Kinathukkadavu are in progress.
Mr. Ramakrishnaa told The Hindu that the pending works and fine tuning would be completed and the section would be ready for Commissioner Rail Safety (CRS) inspection by March 31. Once the CRS certified the track as safe and cleared it for passenger traffic, the Southern Railway could throw it open for cargo traffic first and then passenger traffic.
The previous meter gauge line was taken up for gauge conversion in 2009 and the services were suspended in phases from 2010.
Initially, fund allocation proved inadequate and then land acquisition related issues resulted in the gauge conversion getting slowed down.
Now, the works were nearing completion at an approximate cost of ₹ 320 crore, the officials said.
Restoration of the section would get Coimbatore region connected with Palani, Dindigul and Madurai and it would ease the present pressure on the Coimbatore - Tirupur - Erode and Karur sections.
Travel time to Madurai would also come down considerably, railway officials said.
