The food is great but don't expect 5 star hotel cleanliness on a train.

If you don't have much luggage, do not take auto rickshaw from Mangalore Junction they'll demand more than real fare, take the bus instead. Follow the road marked in blue to reach the bus stop.

Hi IR Fans
We as a group of 10 people (3 families), plan to travel by the CSTM-MAO Jan Shatabdi in Dec. My question is, if we book in 2S, as we would like to soak in the Konkan views better, will there be unauthorized passengers?
Or, is it better to book in CC. and miss the effect?
Any help is appreciated.

You are unlikely to face much problem since its a JS and usually KR staff is very strict about rules. I'm sure you'll have a nice time :)

How a Gate keeper knows about train is passing and close the gate and opens the gate ? Will he gets signal from the nearest station ?
What about railway gates located at remote locations ?

The station master of station under which the LC comes informs him through telephone. All stations are connected through telephone(RailTel I guess). If its an interlocked Level crossing then there is no chance of an accident because the signal will be red and the LP will stop before the signal and see what happened. If its not interlocked, then there can be a serious accident

Jul 05 2014 (09:18)   Coach factory, gauge conversion in Palakkad division’s wish list

Doubling of Mangalore-Tumkur stretch too a priority
Kick-starting the rail coach factory at Kanjikode, gauge conversion of the Palakkad Town-Pollachi sector, turning Kozhikode railway station into a world class one and doubling of the Mangalore Junction-Tumkur stretch figure in the priority list of Palakkad Railway Division for the forthcoming Union Railway Budget.Divisional authorities and the State are hoping that Railway Minister D.V. D.V. Sadananda Gowda’s maiden budget will give the much-needed push for the Rs.550-crore coach factory sanctioned in 2008-09 for making Linke Holfmann Busch (LHB)-design stainless steel and state-of-the-art aluminium coaches.The delay in identifying a partner for the public-private partnership had slowed the project when the rail wheel plant at Chhapra, coach factory at Rae Bareli, and the diesel component factory
at Dankuni sanctioned along with it had already commenced production.The inability to push the project forward has cost the State dearly and the development of the railway network, official sources told The Hindu .The authorities are hoping that the division is not bifurcated again. Railways had been able to complete only 70 per cent construction of the boundary wall around the 92.04 hectares handed over by the State.The Union Ministry of Environment and Forests was yet to de-notify the 36 hectares of forestland sought, sources said.The elevation of Kozhikode station into world class one along with Mangalore station is expected to get more allocation.The preliminary consultancy report of Kitco is pending with the Railway Board, sources said.The electrification of the Shoranur-Mangalore section is scheduled for completion by 2015.Non-availability of sand and earth has stalled the construction of the Elathur Traction sub-station that will act as a back up when there is a power shutdown at the Shoranur end.More pit lines have been proposed in Kannur to take care of more long-distance trains.A sum of Rs.127 crore had been sought for the doubling of Mangalore Junction-Tumkur section.Another Rs.20 crore is needed for the gauge conversion of Palakkad Town-Pollachi stretch by December and this will give the last mile connectivity.

All this is just to fool the people. Already long back decided to make Mangalore, Calicut stations world class, Pitline at Cannanore etc. Few days back SR Manager told no need of pitlines at CAN. SIAL was ready to partner in Kanjikode factory. But railway need pvt partnership.
And the electrification will get delayed by one and half year again.
