NR ones were used in inaugural of BNC KYQ and who stood at GKP in July were actually just 3AC coaches with HS livery and little enhancements. I guess services like RO and Coffee machines and some other stuff are also missing in these ones.

Jan 24 2017 (10:39)   Can't wait to ditch my 2-wheeler and start travelling by the railbus

Hareesh Mangalam*^~   1171 news posts
Entry# 2138246   News Entry# 292056         Tags   Past Edits
Though there are technically no local trains between Bengaluru and Tumakuru, local residents prefer using the trains that run between the two cities to go to work in the morning and return back in the evening. These days the trains are also preferred by college goers as a number of engi neering colleges have come up near Chikkabanavara and Soladevanahalli.
Though travel ling by trains is convenient, the only thing lacking is frequency.With Bengaluru-Tumakuru being a double track and the BengaluruNelamangala being a single track, there are not many trains which help the local residents. However, as a recent trip to Nelamangala by the railbus proved it's worth a ride.
I
...
more...
took the railbus from the Yeshwanthpur Railway station at 7:30 am for Nelamangala. The railbus is a compact, cute looking rail which is half the size of a normal train boogie. The seats inside were like any day passenger train.
The platform was bustling with people but only 12-15 people took th railbus. It was curious why not many chose a mode of transport which was budget-friendly, faster than others and also comfortable.
The railbus started at 7:40 am, with a complete feel of a bus, with even the engine starting like one.
The railcar even had a box of engine beside the driver as seen in any normal bus. Even as my subconscious expected the loud horn of a train, the conscious elf was surprised by the bus horn that the railbus emitted. The name `rail-bus `just made complete sense.
The railbus was quick and reached its next stop ­ Chikkabanavara -by 8 am. Few alighted and few got in. The ride was airy, spacious and quite enjoya ble as the rail bus lacked the normal hustle and bustle of a public transport. In quick succession, the coach reached the third stop ­ Soldevanahalli -by 8:05 am and its destination Nelamangala by 8:30 am. It stopped at Nelamangala for 15 minutes, and sharp at 8:45 am, we were on our way back to Yeshwanthpur. The return journey witnessed a number of people heading to their offices in Bengaluru.
The only hiccup in a hitherto pleasant ride was a halt of more than an hour after we reached the Chikkabanavara Station. I was told that the halt was because of a crossing; the passengers however were unperturbed by the delay.
Renukamma, a passenger who was going to Malleshwaram with her ill mother, told me that despite the delay they preferred the airy, comfortable journey by the railbus to a clautrophbic bus.
“The bus will be crowded and even it will stop in traffic jams. At least there is no pollution here and so much space,“ she said. The railbus reached Yeshwanthpur at 10:30 am. While travelling to Nelamangala, the journey of 19.8 km was covered in less than 45 minutes, without any pollution, plenty of seats to choose from. The to and fro journey cost me only Rs 20. In addition, there was no annoying traffic jams. If only more people utilised the railbus and authorities started more of such connecting rail-buses, so much traffic would be off the roads. Many Bengalureans are just waiting for such an initiative. “If only this railbus was connected with the City Railways Station, I am sure more and more people would prefer this,“ Gangadhar, a passenger travelling from Nelamangala to Yeshwanthpur said.
I can't wait to ditch my twowheeler and start taking the railbus, if it is connected to more places that I visit every day.

Its really great to know we have railbus. While my college days there was no train to Soladevanahalli however seems route is improving and getting more trains like railbus. This kind of facilities must be increase to sub-urban's like Tumkur and surrounding areas which would definitely help daily passengers.

Trip Report of an uneventful journey:
Without having anything to do on a lazy holiday morning, I set out to YPR today to fulfil one of my long-cherished dream of travelling in a Rail Bus. Earlier my idea of travelling the Rail Bus that was running between BWT and KQZ fell through when the Rail Bus was replaced by DEMU coaches. I was all too excited with a recent report in ‘Bangalore Mirror’ about this little bus running on tracks between YPR and NMGA. click here
.
An
...
more...
enquiry with PRS clerk, while buying a ticket to NMGA, confirmed that the ‘train’ is departing from PF-1. The empty rake of 12292 was slowly being taken out of PF-2 for arrival for HWH-YPR SF Express. Since I was not able to see anything in most part of tracks on PF-1, I walked further towards the end of PF-1 and there it was the little Rail Bus, with the engines running and LP and ALP in their positions, all set to depart.
.
As expected, 12863 arrived at PF-2 around 7.35 and soon after the Rail Bus was given starter signal. There were just about 10 passengers of the a total seating capacity of 71. After sometime, the Bus accelerated and attained a decent speed of about 60-70 (I am not very good at calculating the speed while travelling on/in a vehicle, also I don’t know about the MPS of a Rail Bus). The sound at the time of acceleration was very loud, but not deafening. It might render the sound of your mobiles ringing inaudible, during acceleration. Also, the passenger could feel the jerk and swaying to sides more in a Rail Bus than a regular coach of a train, I felt.
.
Soon, it entered PF-2 on BAW. On PF-1 was the empty rake of 16569. Of all the passengers, 5 got down and only 1 passenger boarded from here. Later at SDVL, though one passenger, who seemed to be a regular traveller with whom LP seemed friendly, wanted to get down at SDVL, LP asked her to wait and slowed down the Bus a little further from the station, where she wanted to go. Still she was not happy because the Bus was stopped little further where she wanted to go and that she have to walk all the way back through the tracks. .......cont'd
