saying SBC congested MYS congested UBL VSG congested because dumping. but never care for developing alternate terminals in chamraj nagar nanjangud, CMGR TLGP etc. if they develop pit lines and stable lines here they can easily handle coaches without disturbing existing pattern and even if they FEDL they can provide sufficient DEMU MEMU passenger express connectivity. and another thing Bus lobby is main reason for slow trains but they blame SR didnt designed tracks well. what kind of reason is this. y dont SWR modify and improve MPS..

If you think SWR is serving karnataka very well then believe your opinion. But it will not change facts! Even other people agree SWR is not good for karnataka. Why bring in SR anyway then, first sort out your own problems then blame others! I have not painted anyone as villains, I have only given facts,if you yourself feel you are a villain then I cannot help it!
Its better to end this pointless discussion here and do other meaningful work.

If you can't do it blame SR! Look at SBC itself, why only 3 platforms to karnataka from SBC? Facilities in other stations like BAND, KJM, CRLM are nothing. No other terminal like BNC/BYPL/YNK developed. Future stations like LOGH, CSDR, hebbal on ORR could be developed but no work. Negligible suburban trains and endless traffic on roads. Then say other states dumped their trains in SBC. CR increased coaches in udyan, SBC refused saying PF constraints. TEN-DR chalukya halts for 3 hrs in YPR in the morning, nothing done since over 7 years. If I want to go to BGM from SBC, no option except RC which is always full. Finally blame some random zone SR(MAQ) ,SCR( for 12650) and CR( for GR)and sleep like a baby in an airavat club class :P

Blog derailed. A general discussion is quite acceptable about a zone but unnecessary blame on a zone tends it to a unhygienic blog.

Display boards at Yeshwantpur display the name as "Kudla Express". Announcements at MAJN refer to it as Kudla Express. It is OFFICIALLY Kudla Express.

It will be continued to be called as Kudla Exp itself (atleast by locals). Here Dirty Politics has played its game, same as which also happens on IRI, Where Ignorants trying to keep there Point up, even if they are wrong.

This is all up coming election gimmicks. If current opposition will not come as majority they may need support from former pm party to form the government in KA. So central govt is obeying his wish to rename the train. No wonder even chikkamagaluru - sakleshpur new line may also get ready before time.

On IRI atlas Sakleshpur to Subrahmanya Road distance is showing just 55km while on National Train enquiry system (NTES) its showing 109km. Which one is correct?

Re# 2255077-1            Tags   Past Edits
On IRI, you will get the actual rail distance in kms - which is 55 kms. The official kms are most probably inflated - in this case, doubled to 109 km - to account for the steep hill climb from SBHR to SKLR, so as to price the ticket accordingly.

Though actual distance is 55 kms, the chargable distance is 110kms. We have to pay double charge in the ghat section.

Not at all. But running WDG4 in LHF is not ideal in the ghats. That's the reason for giving twin WDG4 for this and 16524.

Re# 2240383-7            Tags   Past Edits
Yes. The task of pushing up the train on the ghat section is taken up by the bankers, So the lead loco doesn't really matter much. A single Alco would be sufficient even. The locos were probably just being sent to YPR with this train.
BTW, really beautiful livery for the EMD's!!

Earlier the station name was Kankanadi & code was KNKD. Later the name of station was changed to Mangaluru Junction & correspondingly the code got changed to MAJN. Believe the name of the area where station is located is Kankanadi; but Railways might have decided to go for the popular name Mangaluru, considering convenience of passengers coming from outside.

Never heard about changing station name along with code. Many stations still uses old station code like BCT,CLT,MAS etc.

What about Mumbai CST?
Earlier its name was Bombay VT & code was BBVT; consequent to renaming, its code too got changed to CSTM.
True that Bombay Central got renamed as Mumbai Central without change in code; stations in & around Chennai retained their codes despite renaming.
