The South Western Railway has named the newly introduced Hubballi-Mysuru train (number 17325/17326) that runs via Bengaluru as 'Vishwamanava Express’.
The name was suggested by journalist Krishna Prasad, who explained the christening of the train in his blog. "(Mysuru MP) Pratap Simha had called for suggestions. His own picks were Kapila Express (after the river which supplies much of Mysuru’s drinking water), Nalwadi Express (after Maharaja Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar), and Ambari Express (after Dasara motif),” he wrote.
Though they considered the name 'Mysore Mallige Express’, they abandoned it "because some punster might call
it 'Mysore Mellage’ if the train runs late”.
"Eventually, we went literary and zeroed in on 'Vishwa Manava Express’,” Prasad wrote.
"Vishwa Manava’ was the idea espoused by Kuvempu which he explains in an essay: "Every child, at birth, is the universal man. But, as it grows, we turn it into a 'petty man’ (through caste, creed, religion and race). It should be the function of education to turn it into the original 'universal man’.”
The South Western Railway has decided to temporarily augment with one second class sleeper coach for train no. 82653 Yeshwantpur-Jaipur Suvidha Weekly Express with effect from June 22 to September 21 and train no. 82654 Jaipur-Yeshwantpur Suvidha Weekly Express with effect from June 24 to September 23.
Train no. 82653/82654 Yeshwantpur-Jaipur-Yeshwantpur Suvidha Weekly Express will have the revised composition of two AC 2-tier coaches, four AC 3-tier coaches, 10 second class sleeper coaches, one pantry car and two luggage-cum-brake van with generator.
South Western Railway will also permanently augment with one AC-3 tier coach for Train No. 17323 Hubballi-Varanasi Weekly Express with effect from June 2 and 17323 Varanasi-Hubballi Weekly Express with effect from June 4.
Train No. 17323/17324 Hubballi-Varanasi-Hubballi Weekly Express will have the revised composition of one AC 2-tier coach, two AC 3-tier coaches, six second class sleeper coaches, six general Second class coaches, two second class luggage-cum-brake van with disabled friendly compartment.

As per latest the Line commissioning dead line is August 2017( next 3-4 months). And pit line at Bidar(Khanapur) all civil works is done already may be they ware waiting for some grand day to open... nearing elections... as few more things need big band opening like Yadgir Railway factory, Bidar-Gulbarga new line, Gulbarga-Wadi electrification, Bidar Pit line, and Gulbarga Railway division (?????)...

Trains from Hubballi to Varanasi, Mysuru to be introduced
Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha has promised to consider favourably a demand for introducing a train between Hubballi and Mangaluru to provide connectivity between the coastal and interior regions of Karnataka.
Replying to a demand by Pralhad Joshi, MP, at a ceremony to release a stamp brought out by the India Post to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of the saint Hanagal Kumaraswamy here on Friday, Mr. Manoj Sinha said that he would try his best to consider this demand and see
that a train was run between these two cities of the State.
Saying that this demand had been made by people of this region as well as that of the coastal belt, Mr. Joshi said that Hubballi was already connected with Mysuru and Bengaluru by train and the department of Railways has also fulfilled the demand for introducing new trains to Varanasi and Mysuru.
He has also urged the Minister to consider another demand for introducing the train between Hubballi and Mangaluru.
Later, Mr. Joshi told The Hindu that he had briefed the Minister regarding the need for running a train between Hubballi and Mangaluru via Arsikere junction.
Earlier, a train was running between Mangaluru and Miraj via Hubballi and it was stopped during the gauge conversion works. The Minister has been urged to reintroduce this train.
Later, this train could be diverted via Ankola once the works of laying a railway track between Hubballi and Ankola was completed.
Mr. Joshi also announced on this occasion that the Ministry of Railways has fulfilled the demand for providing a train between Hubballi and Varanasi (Kashi) and a day train between Hubballi and Mysuru. Both of these trains would be flagged off at a function to be held here on May 23, he said.
The trains from Hubballi to Varanasi and Mysuru will be flagged off at a function on May 23

But that has worst timings from YPR to UBL, BGM. I think even people who want to go to BGM dont catch it as it starts very early & it takes too much time.
There used to be a Suvidha Spl which used to depart YPR at 20:45, UBL-5:00, BGM-7:45, that should be regularised.

Also the only reliable train on Sundays from BGM, UBL to SBC is RC, KSK sometimes gets delayed. & Fridays from SBC to UBL/BGM the only train present is RC in the night, getting ticket in Vasco exp is too difficult and it doesn't go till BGM.
SWR has to run a daily SF with timings similar to:
Return: BGM- 19:00
But return will clash its timings with KSK, RC.
