A small trip by some members and admins of Bangalore on the soon to be antiqued NMGA RAILBUS service.
The to and fro trip had two crews, one LP and one ALP (both DMU crew members) who were very keen to share whatever they knew about the service. So much was their excitement that they took pics of we 'crazy railfans'. :)
There were about 15 travelers in the railbus including 4 from IRI. The fuel tank capacity is 65 litres and the railbus is filled to 3/4th of
...

the capacity which the crew claims serves them for 2 days. In other words, IR spends about 800 rupees on a one way YPR-NMGA service and the ticket sales are just in the range of rs 100-200 per day. Talk about IR making losses. :-/
But the journey was memorable, and a well cherished one knowing that the service may never run after tomorrow.

Would be discontinued as soon as a passenger service is introduced on the new line. Word going around is that it could happen in about 1-2 weeks.

There is no rail connectivity to the state of Sikkim as of now. The nearest railhead is a place called New Jalpaiguri ( code: NJP). You can find the list of trains here /search/664/444
From NJP, its a 3-4 hr drive to Gangtok, the state's capital. You will find various options to travel from NJP to other places in Sikkim as well. However, you are advised to plan your travel in such a way that you reach NJP between 7 am to 3 pm. Before or after these times, the transport options are very limited.

major junction is Siliguri but not many trains from Delhi stop here. Moreover, its only 10-15 kms from NJP. You can always travel to this place from NJP( rickshaw/local train, shared cab etc) and get even more frequent connections to Sikkhim.

Udupi Station has only some light refreshment stalls on PF 1. PF2 has only a small strip of shelter like a village R.S.
The station is slightly on an elevated level. There is an elevator to reach the car park from just outside PF 1.
A small budget lodge and an eatery is there just behind tourist car park. Udupi city centre is about 4 kms from the station and Udupi-Manipal highway is about half a km away.

auto facility seems to be there, although I am not sure if it functions effectively.
The display of coach position is interesting at the notice board. It does not show position of coaches from engine and direction. Instead it shows a coach will stop at the number where it is displayed. For example in our train 22475, engine was at number 24 on the platform, where it stopped. Our coach was 10th from engine. The display notice mentioned A1 would be where 14 number is on the platform. Bit confusing for non regular passengers.
There are just one or two porters at the station who normally show up only before a train is scheduled to arrive. Unless, we request the station staff to call him over his cell phone.

Traveled in 56640 4 days ago and had a similar experience at UD. A small stall on the KAWR end dishes out some of the best Upma, Buns, Goli Bajjis and Lemon rice I have tasted. Needless to say, they were fresh adn hot. The lone TTE of the train suggested the shop and he himself packed all the items for BF.
