Through the Shiradi Ghats by Rail!♫♫♫
After the Mandovi Express round trip in October, I was contemplating a round trip onboard the Karwar-Yeshwantpur Express to enjoy the spectacular Shiradi Ghats. The planning was done just a day or rather just a few hours in advance and for the first time, I booked tickets through IRCTC. Booked in the 16516 Karwar-Yeshwantpur Intercity Express in 2S and was allotted a Window seat as per my preference. When I checked the status of the return train for the next day, I was surprised to see a rather long waiting list! Tickets were available for the subsequent days in abundance though. I went ahead with CC and got a WL7 ticket which I was sure would confirm. The train was scheduled to depart from

Mangalore Junction at 11:10. This train originally ran as the Yeshwantpur-Mangalore Central Express but was later extended to Karwar and to this day runs empty in the concatenated section. There were a few Passengers as I boarded at 11:00 and the train left at 11:25 with a delay of 15 minutes. I knew that the train would be fully occupied from Subrahmanya Road and checked the charts to find D4 and D5 coaches totally vacant! I was in D2 which would have 100% occupancy later on. The halts at Bantwal and Kabakaputtur were done more or less on time and the train reached Subrahmanya Road to be greeted by a huge crowd, really huge! There were policemen ensuring that there was no trouble anywhere while the passengers jostled to get onboard...

Coming back to the uphill journey, the train shed a lot of weight at Sakleshpura as many people alighted and I moved to the empty D4 coach and settled there for the rest of the journey. Grabbed a couple of Maddur Vadas and a coffee at Sakleshpura just in time as the train started rolling out. Reached Hassan ahead of schedule and the TTE was doing his job well, asking any unauthorized passengers to vacate the reserved coaches. For the first time, tasted the famed Puliyogare which is some sort of a Pulao served with spicy chutney at Hassan. Arsikere was again a before time arrival and I knew that we were in for a long wait. Chalukya Express and jan Shatabdi Express to Bangalore overtook us here and after a grand 75 minute-long halt, we were allowed to crawl out of the station. After Arsikere, the speed increased considerably...

and apart from a couple of unscheduled halts for crossings, the train kept a rapid pace through the section while the temperature dipped further. At Tumkur, a large group of vendors boarded, selling Veg Biriyani, Dal Vada, Idli, Veg Pulao and other stuff. Bought a Veg Biriyani which was tasty albeit a little too spicy. After a non-stop run for the next one hour or so, the train finally reached Yeshwantpur station pretty much on time. I had reserved a dormitory bed at the station through IRCTC and thus headed straight towards the Dormitory where the attendant was fast asleep. He checked my ticket and asked me to get it entered in the register at the ticket counter number 6. After entering the details, the person manning the counter accompanied me to the dormitory and asked the attendant to set it up which he did. Just before falling asleep, I saw a small mouse running around the dormitory and since I didn't have any eatables in my bag, I was least bothered and slipped into a deep slumber, intermittently waking up every now and then before the alarm finally went off at 05:30, just in time for me to freshen up and charge my phone and camera to board the train back home scheduled to leave at 06:30.

The Centre is planning to recognise George Fernandes’s contribution towards development of the Konkan Railway route that was implemented by him when he was railway minister.
On a recent visit to his hometown Rajapur in Konkan, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu mooted the idea recognising Fernandes’ contribution to the development of one of the most picturesque railway routes in the country.
In an informal chat with reporters here, Prabhu recounted how Fernandes, during his term, ensured adequate funds for the Konkan Railway.
Incidentally, all the key players pursuing the project were holding key positions in the government.
Fernandes, who is from Mangalore, was the Railway Minister; Madhu Dandavate, who conceptualised the route, was the

finance minister. “The duo got on board Ramakrishna Hedge, who hailed from coastal Karnataka, to ensure funds for the project. Hegde was then the Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission,” Prabhu said.
Prabhu recalled that it was the foresight of Fernandes that took the Konkan Railway till Kochi, thus bringing the western coast on the railway map.“We want to commemorate the contribution of Fernandes, but naming a railway station after him would not do justice. It has to be something unique,” Prabhu said.
The 84-year-old Fernandes is undergoing treatment for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and he may not recall the role he played.
To tide over the difficulties in financing the project, the Konkan Railway Corporation was incorporated as a public sector undertaking and raised funds from market sources.

Please explain me this logic
Mangalore jn to Kundapura
madgano passenger with so many stops takes 1 hr 40 mins
Matsyagandha with limited stop takes 1 hr 52 mins
MAQ MAO iNTERCITY TAKES 2 hR 2 MINS
Mumbai express takes just 1.30 Hrs
Why passenger take less time compared to superfast trains like matsyagandha and intercity????
