Hope they will materialize our idea
Guys, the ministry has asked people for concrete, workable suggestions and ideas thru this website of theirs under 6 broadly classified important aspects of the Indian Railways. While the invitation is open for all citizens from all walks of life, I just thought as railfans, we are better placed to offer what is asked for. Its a small gesture to give back something to an institution that we so dearly love and which has brought us all together on this platform here. Honestly speaking, I have my own doubts if our ideas would ever materialize having a fair knowledge of how our govt organizations typically works but we can surely claim to be on a high pedestal and claim to have done our 'duty'/ bit to the cause and put the ball in their court. More importantly we can discuss, debate and fine-tune all those suggestions here on...

IRI after or before our submissions there.
PS. The registration and submission processes appear to be slightly cumbersome like any other sarkaari website, but hardly takes a couple of mins.

Unlike many other stations, the hub of the activity in this station is on an annexe building near PF4. PF 1 has nothing except 2-3 stalls and one waiting room although a majority of the trains arrive and depart from this PF. But this annexe building, which can only be accessed thru a FOB from all other PFs, has the ticketing counters, retiring rooms, station master cabins etc.

THE MALNAD MADNESS..
.
PART-1
.
It was a calm Saturday morning when my blissful sleep came to a sudden end at 10:40AM, there was a weird loud noise accompanied by vigorous vibration of various
...
more...
parts of my bed. I woke up startled, my semi conscious mind unable to figure out the source, turns out it was our admin hero of the lands beyond lottegollahalli, Tejas, calling me to ensure I wake up in time to book tickets in Tatkal. It was ancient history to me that I had promised him the day earlier, that i would indeed wake up on time and book them in time. These were for our next day return trip from Bhadravati in 16580 SMET-YPR Tri-Weekly Express. It also hit me that we were to depart in a few hours onboard 16201 SBC-SMET Express to Chikmaglur and i was barely in the position to open my eyes fully.
.
Tejas however didn't know that I just woke up to his phone call, so he was duly informed that i was up since morning and the tickets would be taken care of, feigning complete nonchalance. After all, I didn't want my reputation of being punctual, stickler to trips committed and completely dependable be dented. After a series of phone calls and trying to book tickets in parallel, we finally got confirmed reserved tickets for the next day(I have never really imagined the tri-weekly would go into such long WL forcing us to book CK, but then weekend it was).The two other members joining us were also the lone voyagers of lottegollahalli, my very old unpredictable regular travel partner Shashank Bhat and subbu, a dear friend to all of us.
.
There are quite a lot of destinations mentioned like Chikmaglur, Shimoga and Bhadrvathi in what i wrote above so in case you are wondering where this trip was to, then i'd ike to say to explore the Chikmaglur-Kadur line. But like things have always been when a combination of any four of us or all go on a trip, it was an absolute maze of the weirdest of situations which made the next 36 hours turn out different in entirety. Delayed trains, broken brains, lazy legs, sheer madness and of course quite a lot of green chickpea along with their plants.
.
Do keep watching this space for a detailed trip report and be a part of the railfanning escapades and them class while i would try to recollect details and put them into words :)

TO BE CONTINUED..

Part IV.
Taking from where the author of the previous posts has left, the gang of 4 stayed put at a hotel few hundred meters from the Railway station. A detailed tip would be placed under the station tip but its worth mentioning here that about 6 budget to luxury hotels/ lodges, few eateries and the town bus stand are all located within a 100 meters of each other. And so we hardly faced a problem that night, or the next morning. The next morning we were to take a 6 am bus and make a dash to Chikmagalur, about 45 kms away so as to comfortably take the CMGR-YPR pass back to the plains. A 'spirited' previous night notwithstanding,
...

we took a Karnataka Sarige bus at 6.15 am. 75 mins later, we were at the brand new CMGR station located slightly on the outskirts of the city. Very clean like most SWR stations, the station is powered by electricity powered by mini windmills stationed beside the PFs. That was a first for me. Our train was on PF2 ( 3 PFs in toto) waiting to be pulled by an alco from the ED shed. The train was about 50% filled and we decided to take the last but one coach so as to get a vantage view of the 'curves'. Railfans or otherwise, we guys always look for curves, dont we? :) As luck had it, we were the only occupants of the coach! At 7.40 sharp, the ED WDM3A hooted and we were ready to go! I shall leave it to the primary author to go into the technica and finerl aspects of the 65 min long journey, while I harp on the pics I am attaching with this to explain how good the ride was. Any train ride thru the Malnad is always a treat to the eyes, and throw some hills, bridges, via-ducts and a thick green cover into the mix and it sure had to be one spl ride.
Over to Vijay.

You are exhilarated in the month of Jan, just imagine how beautiful it would be in monsoon.. Undoubtedly India's most scenic route but the prob is half the monsoon, route remains disrupted becausr of excessive rainfall..
