Yes becoz towards MAQ is single line.. But towards MAJN is double line.. Malabar starts MAQ at 18:20.. And yeshwantpur will reach before 18:20.. So it waits malabar

15hrs from Kannur(12997-Hapa, 12483-Amritsar, 12287-Dehradun, 12202-Garibrath, etc), etc) all these trains are reaching Mangalore Jn before 20
All these trains are reaching Mangalore Jn before 20
If 16518 YPR CAN-YPR express leaves at 18
If this timing is followed, both Kannur Kannur-Yesvantpur Yesvantpur trains will be leaving at the same time from Kannur, as 16528 16528(CAN-YPR via Exp Salem is also leaving at the same time
) via Salem is also leaving at the same time from Kannur
As this train has just 8 coaches, it can run at a maximum speed not less than 110kmph
So, the timing proposes proposed above is absolutely achievable without disturbing the timing of Karwar-Mangalore-Yesvantpur express and a great advantage for the Bangalore passengers from Kannur to Mangalore
At present, Kannur-Yesvantpur express is waiting for Karwar-Yesvantpur express express(16524) at Mangalore Central Station for around 2 hours, by losing a considerable time
35hrs 00hrs and in return, 16524(Karwar-Yesvantpur Express) has to leave from Karwar at 14
40hrs
Kannur - Yesvantpur Express/16518 shall leave Kannur at 6.25PM(18.25hrs), instead of 16.30hrs, to save 2 hours being wasted at Mangalore Central. There are some weekly/bi-weekly trains at 18.15hrs from Kannur(12997-Hapa, 12483-Amritsar, 12287-Dehradun, 12202-Garibrath, etc). All these trains are reaching Mangalore Jn before 20.30hrs. If 16518 CAN-YPR express leaves at 18.25hrs from Kannur just behind these trains, it will reach Mangalore Central before 20.35 hrs(even arrival before 20.30 hrs is possible). So, 16518 YPR express has also almost the same number of stops, with Payyannur & Kanhangad as additional, the same speed and timing can be followed for both the trains with 10 minutes interval, as 16518 has just 8 coaches and can run very fast. So, this train can merge with 16524 Karwar-YPR express at Mangalore Central and leave MAQ at 20.50hrs for YPR, as 15 minutes are sufficient for these trains to have amalgamation and engine reversal....

Unnecessarily, 2 hours of passengers are lost due to the existing timing. If this timing is followed, both Kannur-Yesvantpur express trains will be leaving at the same time from Kannur, as 16528(CAN-YPR Exp.) via Salem is also leaving at the same time from Kannur. As almost all the non-stop express trains(long gap between the stops) are running at a speed of 90 to 110 kmph on Kannur-Mangalore line, this train can reach Mangalore Central from Kannur in less than 2 hours, considering 90kmph running speed and 25 minutes extra time for 3 stops and starting/stopping. As this train has just 8 coaches, it can run at a maximum speed not less than 110kmph. Moreover, once the electrification of Kannur-Mangalore line is over, the starting/stopping time can be considerably reduced to 1 or 2 minutes to achieve full running speed. So, the timing proposed above is absolutely achievable without disturbing the timing of Karwar-Mangalore-Yesvantpur express and a great advantage for the Bangalore passengers from Kannur to Mangalore. At present, Kannur-Yesvantpur express is waiting for Karwar-Yesvantpur express(16524) at Mangalore Central Station for around 2 hours, by losing a considerable time. This waiting time can be minimized to just 15 or 20 minutes, if the proposed timing is implemented. As it is confirmed that Karwar-Yesvantpur train schedule cannot be revised or tightened since it has to run a long distance(260km) from Karwar to Mangalore and it can only run on the existing time schedule, as it is using the same rake of Yesvantpur-Karwar express(16523) for return journey, which reaches Karwar at 14.00hrs and in return, 16524(Karwar-Yesvantpur Express) has to leave from Karwar at 14.40hrs. If the proposed timing is implemented, it will be a great saving of time for the passengers, who are losing considerable time at present.

atleast good. From netravathi they should do it to Mangalore central also ASAP, then atleast some relief would be there. Mangalore Junction can still be finished before the monsoon. But SRR_CLT stretch is fast progressing, hope even the CLT-CAN picks up pace.

Yes SRR-CLT is almost done. But CLT-CAN stretch not much progress. CAN-MAQ section is better. SRR-CAN section is one contract and the CAN-MAQ is another contract. It is heard that in the CLT-CAN section, one over bridge near CLT is the bottleneck and the height to be increased..

I think this train TT needs a serious refinement.... 2 hours at MAQ is just atrocious.....
It shd depart CAN at 17:00 hrs to reach MAQ at 19:10 hrs. Meanwhile its link 16524 should be speeded up to arrive MAQ at 19:20 hrs. The departure from MAQ shd be 19:45 hrs so that it reaches SBC by 7.30 am. This will ensure better patronage

The revision in TT was expected last July. Instead of reducing the time little bit extended. As of now one can go by car to SBC and can come back to CAN by 16 hrs. The revision in time can be reduced between SBHR and MAQ too. This section is taking more than the time between ghat section. The timing of 16517 can also be adjusted. The train can reach MAQ morning 7:30 and can leave to CAN before Coimbatore FP to reach CAN by 10:15.

Railway should consider the proposed timing to save the timing of both passengers and railway staff.

I am terminating one of my journey at Mangalore Central (MAQ) (train no. 12619) and and embarking on a new one from Mangalore Junction (MAJN) to Bangalore City (SBC) after few hours. I wish to keep my luggage in cloakroom. Can anybody confirm it for me where can I avail this facility ?? At MAQ or at MAJN ?? Does MAJN has cloakroom facility ?? I fear if I have to get my ticket modified form MAQ so as to use cloakroom at MAQ (if any).
Please help.
