A mainline electric multiple unit (MEMU) train is likely to come to the rescue of passengers travelling from Bengaluru to Mysuru in the evening hours.
The South Western Railway (SWR) is proposing to extend the Ramangaram train for four days in a week.
After the diversion of Kannur/Karwar Express on the new route via Shravanabelagola for four days in a week in February this year, passengers travelling to Mysuru had no train from Bengaluru after 7 pm.
a proposal that was delivered to Railway Minister Piyush Goyal by Pratap Simha, Mysuru MP, the SWR has sought “temporary extension” of Ramanagaram MEMU (66539) for four days in a week from Wednesday to Saturday.
The train will run as Mysuru Ramanagaram MEMU special (06576) on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The Ramanagaram MEMU leaves Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna station in Bengaluru at 7.55 pm. Sources said it is proposed to leave Ramanagaram at 9 pm and reach Mysuru at 11.15 pm. The timings for the return direction will be decided soon, the source added.
Simha tweeted a photo of himself with Goyal: “Requested @PiyushGoyal ji to extend Benglauru-Ramnagar MEMU upto Mysuru and he immediately instructed the officials. It will be a reality soon (sic).”

They can do that also, soon after starting this first MEMU to Mysuru. On the same line there should be MEMU/DEMU to all neighboring districts in the evening and in the morning to Sbc. Like, Tumakuru, Hassan, Kolar, Chikkaballapur, Hindupur, Hosur, etc

Today I saw works of second siding of NTPC Kudgi plant which going towards Bijapur side until now I only saw Elevated siding which is on Gadag side so in future I think coal rakes coming from Gadag side can use this new siding towards bijapur and coal rakes coming from Hotgi side use Elevated siding which is on Gadag side.. I saw it from far so I didn't able to take pics..

For the second siding which i saw near Kudgi for NTPC STPP Kudgi its being executed by Konkan railways whose total lenght is measured as 11.650km
Konkan Railway Corporation Limited is the Project Management Consultant
(PMC) to M/s. NTPC Limited and whereas M/s. NTPC Limited is the Owner
The route length of the siding is approximately
11.650 kms. The total track length of the siding including 15 loop lines is
approximately 48.00 kms. The NTPC In-plant yard starts from Chainage
3/800 to 7/800 (total length = 4.00 kms) and width of the yard is
approximately 400 mtrs which is having 23 lines yard and in Stage-I, 15 loop
lines will be constructed but Earthwork will be done for 23 lines yard.
Maximum Earthwork of this siding is coming in this In-plant yard with
maximum cutting depth of approximately 10 mtrs and maximum filling of
approximately 14 mtrs and this may vary.
complete details can be looked into this link @ click here

I too saw this last time during deepavali. So Kudgi station will be like perfect 'K' type juncture, freights from either side can directly enter NTPC plant

Yup i think they did two sidings as one for frieghts entering from Bijapur side over elevated curvy siding and another in construction for freights coming from Gadag side to enter plant. But even they may use on as enterance and another one as exit of freight rakes.

prahlad joshi via fb" Today I met Chairman of Railway Board, Shri. Ashwani Lohani ji along with Shri. Suresh Angadi and apprised him about the issues faced by Act Apprentice candidates and I urged him to look into the pressing issues faced by these candidates and sought for an early resolution for the same.
I also urged the CRB to utilise idle rake of Hubballi Varanasi train to a new destination preferably to Shirdi. I also told him about Introducing new Daily train from Hubballi to Chennai on Public demand as presently there are two weekly trains running between Hubballi to Chennai one is from Vasco and another is from Hubballi city but there is a long pending demand from Public of
this region and Gadag, Koppal and Bellary that there is an immediate need for running a train from Hubballi to Chennai via Gadag Koppal Bellary Guntakal which is sure to give good occupancy for the schedule as per the past experience as there was a special train intrdoduced some times back but abruptly stopped. The CRB responded positively to my requests and would act on the same". click here

1. TBM can receive trains without any PF issues. Locals starting from TBM or terminating at TBM use PFs.1 & 2. Locals to/from CGL use 3 & 4. Two PFs for Express trains. Two more PFs will be available for trains starting from TBM. Five minutes halt at MS can be given.
2. MAS can receive the train at around 10:15 or 10:20. MAS is relatively free at that time. Except Garudadri, all trains arriving from 10 to 11 AM will move out of MAS to BBQ/TNP/KOK/Avadi. Its better to terminate at MAS than at MS because at MS, except 1 to 3, all other PFs are pass through/non-terminating lines. If via TPTY/RU and arrival between 10 to 11, it must either
follow or overtake Garudadri. If it follows Garudadri, then it will be made to wait for SBC Shatabdi as it would join the race from AJJ.
3. Thanks for tagging me. :)
4. 6-12 slot? Slot between which two stations?
5. If introduced, it should be a regular train with proper timings.
