Announcements likely during commissioning of Bengaluru-Mysuru rly. electrification by Narendra Modi this month-end or first week of Feb.
The long awaited commissioning of Bengaluru-Mysuru double line electrification is likely to be done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to the State on January 28.
With ensuing State Assembly elections, the Prime Minister is also likely to announce a few new trains,
including Humsafar Express from Mysuru. Sources in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said Mr. Modi would be attending the valedictory of the Parivartana rally of the State BJP. He may combine an official programme with the party programme.
Though the Commissioner of Railway Safety (Southern Circle) had authorised South Western Railway (SWR) to operate electric loco-hauled trains between Bengaluru and Mysuru on December 14, 2017, the same was not commissioned ostensibly awaiting clearance from the Prime Minister’s Office.
This is nothing but criminal waste of public money, quipped K.N. Krishna Prasad, a rail enthusiast from Bengaluru who said the cost of operating a diesel-loco train is more than double the cost of operating an electric-loco hauled train. While a diesel loco guzzles diesel worth about Rs. 42,000 between Bengaluru and Mysuru, an electric loco would consume electricity worth about Rs. 17,000, he noted.
Lokesh, another rail enthusiast from Bengauru, said SWR should not have delayed operating electric loco-hauled trains on the section.
New trains
Meanwhile, the PMO has reportedly taken keen interest in announcing a few new trains during the commissioning of the line and has taken details from SWR and the Railway Board.
Sources in SWR told The Hindu that at least one conventional rake of four passenger trains operating between the two cities would be replaced by a Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit (MEMU), to begin with. Though SWR has received three sets of MEMU with 8 cars each, the engineering department has to form a new rake with 16 cars. Unlike formation of conventional rakes with coupling method, forming a MEMU rake is quite difficult and takes more time. Once a 16-car rake is formed, another 16-car MEMU rake would be formed using available cars in the zone. Totally, two sets of passenger trains would be replaced with MEMU rakes.
Humsafar Express
Even as a new Humsafar Express rake has arrived at Mysuru, the PMO is yet to finalise the destination to which it would operate from Mysuru, the sources said.
The Railway Board has taken SWR’s feedback on operating this all 3-tier AC train with 16 coaches train to Kacheguda, Kochuveli, Howrah, Vijayawada, Guwahati and Chennai, sources added.
Meanwhile, FKCCI member Prakash Mandoth has urged Railway Minister Piyush Goyal to run this train to Udaipur as the other six cities are well connected with Karnataka. If run to Udaipur, the train will traverse 800 km covering 11 districts in Karnataka, he said.

Dear members ,
mujhe ye jan na h ki kya MEMU train me toilet nahi hoti h. aur kya koi bhi seats gaddi dar nahi hoti.
bcz hamari ye train jald hi MEMU ban ne ja rahi h aur mujhe iski tension khaye ja rahi h. kya pata train me toilets milegi ya nahi . bcz ye train 16-17 hrss ka suffer kari h. aur is train me UP ke labour jo ki mostly gujrat ke bhatto par kaam ki talash me jate h . unka bahut aana jana laga rahta h aur
wo end to end travel karte h isme.
iske alawa hum log is train ka use MTJ to kHANDIP and KHANDIP to SWM Travel ke liye karte h.
ab itne long hrs tak bina toilet jaye rahne possible nahi h sath hi bina gaddi dar seats par baith pana bhi posssible nahi hoga.

Apka thinking Jo toilets ko leke h vo ab newly constructed MEMU trains me dhyan rakha gya h..
16hr journey mere hisab se thik nhi but isko MEMU me convert krne se time between two station thoda Kam ho jata h.. aur abhi to 130mps tak k memu aa rahe h. So ek SF trains k lagbhag tyming me ye chal sakti h.. memu ko agar sahi se chalaya Jaye to normal passenger trains se 1hr tyming save hoga aur E2E middle (main) line stop mile to ye express trains k barabar samay me travel kr sakti h.. memu trains ko lane se route me conjesion bhi Kam hota h.. seat bhi ab achha standard ata h to utna chinta krne
ki jarurat nhi h apko..

so upto 10hr journey in day tym MEMU trains is good deal.. z😪👌👍
