I am a frequent traveller of train no. 17235/17236 and I stay near Sarjapur. I would like to request official stop at Carmelaram station as amny will be benefited. Cnsidering the time that the train reaches Carmelaram station at 8AM in the morning, It is more ideal for people who stay near sarjapur, marathahalli. Secondly, even while leaving from Bangalore, it reaches Carmelaram at 7PM. It will be more convenient for majority of IT working people. Thanks in advance for the needful

Well I have two possible remedies for this.
17235 is a heavily delayed train in the Cantonment-Hosur-Cantonment section given the huge no of traffic it has to encounter on this single during those hours. 17235 invariably makes atleast 2 stops before Hosur to let the Karaikal Bangalore passenger and the Ernakulam Bangalore intercity pass by. And its usually stations other than Karmelaram where the crossings happen. Hence a stop at Karmelaram will only add to this train. What you can do is to take Yeshvantpur Salem passenger to Hosur and catch this train there. I know many people who use this arrangement and it works quite well.
17236, this train may very well stop at Karmelaram or the next stop which is Bellandur road for a crossing with the Passenger. You may use the passenger to reach your destination incase the crossing is at Bellandur Road.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
