There are 3 train leaving this to SBC people to KPG/SNSI... there are lot of difficulties from MYS for the people...
1)No-Chatwill be pasted...
2)No-Lights for the coaches...
3)75% empty form MYS...
4)No Enquiry person at the counter for the ticket status update, W/L people should wait TTE from SBC... which is very very BAD...
and many more...
Even from SBC i don't think direct pax will available...if CC is made like this and made to run via ASK,UBL,GDG.... this will get decent porterage...
LOCO-SLR-GEN-GEN-GEN-S9-S8-S7-S6-S5-S4-S3-S2-S1-A1-B1-B2-GEN-GEN-GEN-SLR total 20 coaches compared to 22 exiting CC...
and in return this runs 50% empty after SUR by it reaches BAY/GTL it will reduce more...and GTL quota will not get full all the time 80% runs empty... i have traveled so-many times from GTL - MYS...
Seats are hardly available in MAS - SNSI Exp or Karnataka Exp. Only this train has GNWL for SBC - SNSI.
But i do condemn the hardship of MYS bound people...
If you want you have to take chances and that's purely depends on the LUCK... and moreover you cannot look for one side run need to look for the return as well which is very very poor in this train...
News scrolling says shirdi mysore train looted near belapur maharashtra.
S1 to S14 looted of ornaments
Pls update if anybody has more info
this train should be diverted via Tumkur Chitradurga, bellary, Hospet , rather than from Hindupur, or else a passenger from chikjajur to Bagalkot via chitradurga , bellary, hospet , gadag, holealur , badami( this will be useful for tourists purpose) . It would be useful for many passengers as we do not such train facilities
no need for diversion as it is a shortest route then what u have proposed
Surprisingly clean interiors!
This will be clean in the Up direction.. but not sure about Down
Why dont they keep this train daily?
Presently , in weekly run, Train is having good occupancy only in peak season.,,,
Slowed down further by 15 mins
no its same TT, no change
Mys dep changed to 5- since its next run i have updated it
ohh yes, today I checked it was same but for 16218 it changed too much at DD. So thought for 16217 its same, Now they have changed it.
That shas got 20 mins speede dup overall
it always arrive at snsi well before time, dont know why they changed it.
I guess some slight change in 16518 TT so they have preponed this departure
for 16518 DD dep is preponed by 1 Hr 10 mins
Yes- its speeded up til DD, slowed down till SBC and departure revised at sbc
admins update route as dharma aram to ATP to guntkal without touching gooty
