Earlier, the 6.30 Passenger to Hubballi had half portion Shimoga coaches which were bifurcated at Birur (back 10 or 12 coaches). The main train with Hubli coaches used to go to Hubli and another loco used to take the coaches meant for Shimoga. Has this been discontinued? In the time table of Bangalore Shimoga trains, there is no mention of this. In its return journey it used to leave Shimoga at 2.15 PM. There is no mention of this train in the return journey also. Some one please throw light on this.
