If there is a slot available for this train without affecting the existing operation, it should be done, no doubt about it, if not certainly MAQ needs another platform and other infrastructure expansion.
At the same time isn't it also responsibility for those in powers there (city corporation, and legislature) to improve road connectivity/public transport to Mangaluru Junction, not from Kudla express perspective alone, but also for other trains which pass through Mangaluru junction so that people of Mangaluru are truly benefited with two stations and more trains?
Not all trains from
Chennai start at Chennai Central, some begin at Egmore which is like 2.2 Km away and now there is plan to make Tambaram also as a terminal station (almost nearing completion) and which is like a good 27 kilometer from chennai central.
Within SWR itself in Bangalore don't we have trains beginning from KSR and some trains beginning from Yasvantpur junction which is like 7 kilometers apart ? I still remember days i used to my tense trip in traffic to Yasvantpur junction when i used to work at Bengaluru, where there is always a chance that i might miss my train due to traffic.
The distance from Mangaluru Junction is like 5 kilometer's ? as for 16517 the train belongs to SWR, so the decision to run it as a slip service is surely a conscious decision of SWR.

No it wasn't ----- powerful bureaucrats in Delhi pressurised and split that train.
Instead of blaming local authorities, why can't SR do its JOB and allow a state capital train at the main station. So many trains to TN capital and Kerala capital can start, not one for the people of Karnataka to their capital? Let one of those train start from MAJN.

Who is to blame for not re-naming Mangalore as Mangaluru? 2014 state govt. changed the name, but SR keeping the name as what it was during Madras Presidency time.....
Pre-paid auto was started and shut down due to problems created by SR at MAJN (my friend said).
Look at the condition of MAJN, does it look like a major city station where 70 odd trains stop?
Now this blog is gonna be archived....that's what SR fans will do.... :)

Trip report in 12362
Hi all, well, here I am with a trip Report, this one, On board 12362/CSTM - ASN sf from CSTM to PNBE. So, here is how the trip went.
Arrived at pf12 of CSTM station at 1045 hrs on board the legendary Deccan Queen.
rushed to pf15 where our connecting train to Patna, 12362/ was waiting to depart. Itarsi(ET) ELS based WAP4 #22981 was all set to Haul us till Itarsi. We settled in our Berths, Side Berths as always!! It was a 2011 made coach with charging points at Berths, Awesome Maintenance by ER. Super clean rake, coaches Not less than 2010 made. It was looking like a ISO Certified train in every sense.

At 11:05 hrs, we were given the Starter and we were off, Departing bang on time from CSTM. Crusing through the mumbai Suburbs, had a short Parallel action with 22511/ Karmabhoomi Express bound to Kamakya(KYQ) near Vidyavihar as it departed from Lokamanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) and was Joining the Main Line led by WAP-4 from Bhusawal(BSL) ELS and a WAM-4 led Sewagram Express!!
On the Approach to Kalyan, we crossed a PUNE DLS based WDG3A led 17032/Hyderabad - Mumbai Express a.k.a ROD or SUPER CRAWLER due to the Extreme Slack this train has. At KYN, me met another KYN WDG3A 'SHAKTI' led Jalna - Dadar Jan Shatabdi Express.
Departing from KYN and diverting towards Manmad(MMR), We met LTT bound Godavari express led by AJNI ELS Based WAP-7 locomotive, arrived at kasara at 13:34 hrs were WAG-7 twins were attached to our train at the rear to act as bankers and help in pushing Up the Thull Ghats. We crossed WCAM-3 led 12597/ Gorakpur - CST Jan Sadaran Express. Departed Kasara and into the Thull Ghats (Part of Western Ghats), after Half an hour ride into enjoying the Awesome Thull Ghats, we Arrive Igatpuri, at 14:03 hrs were the Banker Locomotives were removed before we set off further.
Had a Awesome, High Priority Non stop run all the way till our next halt at Manmad 200 odd kms away. Such was the clearance that we reached Manmad a good 10 mins beore time, Oh Yes, You guys can guess what happens if a train enters or say, wants to enter a Major Juntion Before time. Well, you guessed it right, Stopped at Home signal (Outer) before we were allowed to enter the Station about 2 mins late at 15:50 hrs, and it was Clash of big guns in MMR, with Nizamuddin Bound Karnataka Sampark Kranti, Bangalore bound Karnataka Express, Amritsar bound Sachkand Express, all arriving one behind the other. And of course, the Down Main line was Kept Empty for A LEGEND, 12860/ Gitanjali Express led by Santragachi ELS Based WAP-4 #22272 to make its presence felt and skip Manmad at a Brisk pace.
Departed Manmad at 16:10 hrs, a Delay of a 20 mins which was thankx to Karnataka Sampark Kranti which was given preference over us to depart MMR first. and Amritsar bound Sachkand departed right behind us and we started yet another non - stop, high Priority run towards our Next halt, Bhusaval, a good 180 kms away just to reach, I must say, Bhusaval Home (Outer) at 18:10 hrs, covering the 180 km distance at a Staggering average of 90 kmph for a normal super fast That too being a WEEKLY!!! Such was the Priority. It literally gave karnataka Sampark Kranti, a run for its money I must say.
We were received onto the pf at 18:19 hrs with Karnataka Sampark Kranti standing right beside us on the Adjacent Platform and announcement was being made for arrival of Sachkand Express too!! Now, i did not have anything since Bread and Cutley of Deccan Queen s Dining Car, So, took Dal rice and trust me, It was the WORST Dal Rice I ever Tasted and not gonna eat anything in BSL ever again!!
Departed BSL at 18:36 hrs, Again a delay of 20 mins, all thanks to Karnataka Sampark Kranti Express. The next 120 kms of the Journey towards Khandwa (KNW) was a more of a Start - Stop affair , Something in Contrast to the Journey till now, so much so that Inspite of Slack Provided in this Section of the Journey. we arrived KNW at 20:40 hrs, Delayed by 5 mins, covering up only 15 mins , Tried Eating Chole bature over here which tasted 100 times better than Dal Rice at BSL.
Departed at 20:50 hrs, A Delay of 10 mins, For another Strech of Non - Stop 183 km run to Itarsi (ET) where Loco Change would take place and and the loco in charge of my train, 22981 was to give way for a Diesel Locomotive to take charge. Arrived, well. Itarsi Home (Outer) at 23:00 hrs, thus marking another blazing run covering 183 kms in 2 hrs 10 mins. Then we made a parallel entry into ET along with Karnataka Sampark Kranti, and as we stopped on pf4 for a Scheduled halt and a Loco Change, K.S.K made a Unscheduled halt on pf1 before bidding us 1 final goodbye as it veered off towards Jhansi and we were to take the other line towards Jabalpur.
Me n my bro, Being Adrant EMD Fans, were praying for a EMD to haul us from ET, and stayed awake just to see the Loco change but all our hopes drained when we saw that a Alco, Gonda Ka Munda, WDG3A # 13560 came in to take charge in Short Hood Forward(SHF) mode. Departed ET after the Loco change at 23:20, A delay of 5 mins. as we said, "That's all folks" For the Day!!!!

Day 2:
After a Short nap, woke up to find that we reached Jabalpur at 2:30 hrs, delayed by a mere 5 mins covering 240 kms in 3 hrs at an Avg of 80 kmph. Now, I'm really beginning to love this train. Avg of 80 kmph goes to show the Kind of Priority this train gets. After a Brief halt of 10 mins, we departed Jabalpur at 2:40 hrs maintaining that 5 mins delay and I was off to another brief Nap.
After another innings of Brief nap, Woke up at 5:20 to find ourselves Entering Satna juntion and the temperature was Freezing cold, Freshed up and had a Hot cup of Tea. We were really on a Roll as we reached Satna wth a Mere Delay of 10 mins covering 190 kms from Jabalpur to Satna in 2 and half hrs at avg of 76 kmph with a 5 min halt at Katni!!!!! Amazing as it may seem but wow. Departed at 5:30 hrs, again maintaining that 10 mins delay ( Such Accuracy, Much Wow)
The Cold made sure I go into another innings of Sleep which was my final innings before the innings ended at 8:30 hrs when i woke up to see that we were Cruising through at MPS and the Gonda Beauty was doing a Terriffic job indeed with the 22 coacher Load. At around 9:10 hrs, we switched Tracks at Link Juntion Cabin to by Pass Allahabad and join the Delhi - Howrah Grand Cord line at Chheoki Junction were we had a Unscheduled halt for a good 15 mins ( 1st such Halt in entire 1,354 km stretch we covered till now) . After departing, It was Business as usual as we were back at MPS and and then came the big Disappointment, A Big Miss, the TRUE LEGEND IN EVERY SENSE, 12311/Howrah - Kalka Mail, which just completed 150 Strong years in its Service to the Nation whizzed past us and i couldn't capture it. Following it closely was 12505 / North East Express with a CNB WAP-4, which was again closely Followed by 12819/Odisa S.K led by WAP-4 of GZB. Arrived Mirzapur at 10:35 hrs, Before Time by 3 mins
Departed Mirzapur bang On Time and we were heading towards the station that has Asia's Largest Goods Marshelling Yard, MUGALSARAI(MGS)!!! Me, My Bro n Our Friend, the hearts of all 3 of us were pounding and couldn't wait to check out MGS, as usual, we had a Awesome run and arrived MGS 15 mins Before Time.
In the mean time, PURI Bound Purushottam Express was right behind us and we were looped at Jeonathpur (2nd loop as the 1st loop was occupied by Frieght), me and my bro were like, Let's do it n crossed the fright and onto the Main line to capture the overtake by Puru just to Realize that our train was given the Clearance, Thankfully, we some how managed to get back into our train in time, and Puru Arrived MGS behind us!!
After Loco Change, It was Time to get back to Electric again, as Howrah based WAP-4 #22339 took charge. Departed MGS Bang on time and and extent to which the Railway lines Extended was Love!!!
it was a Awesome run with a Scheduled halt at Buxar ONLY till we reached Ara Junction from were on, the Anti - Climax of this trip started. we started to Crawl horribly halting at almost every station before finally reaching Patna at 16:55 hrs, delay of almost 1 and half hrs . i heard about N.C.R trolling trains and was ready for it, but here the question was Out of Syllabus, It was E.C.R that trolled us.
Spotting on Day 2:
1. MGS WAP-4 #22803 with 13201/RJPB - LTT express at Mirzapur
2. HWH WAP-4 #22332 with 12307/Howrah - Jodhpur Express

I wholeheartedly appreciate member 1353704 Name: BRC WAP7
For raising pertinent issues showcasing laxity of CR zone
Stone pelting near Kurduvadi, GR-Wadi electrification etc.
Hope neutral opinions like that of him give a true picture of Great Indian Peninsular Railway Zone
