Mangalore Junction (formerly Kankanady) is quite away from Mangalore City, but most of the trains from Kerala towards Goa and further north pass through this important Junction. A couple of years back, I was shocked to find that the station does not have a cloak room to keep luggages. It was agony to travel some 10 km from the city centre to find this fact and return all the way back to our hotel. I wrote to the Railway Ministry, but there was no response. I am not aware if there is any cloak room facility now.
