Entire Karnataka has many Scenic lines.
1) Gradients of Bangalore Mysore line.
2) Backwaters of Kaveri in Mysore Hassan line.
3) Gigantic Shiradi Ghats ( Personally attached as my grandfather was Inspector of works in that line , I grew up listening to his stories about that)
Ever Beautiful Konkan line from Mangalore to Goa.
5) Dudhsagar line of Hubli division
7) Makalidurga of Bangalore division

I haven't travelled in Shiradi Ghat line, but seen so many videos. I have travelled from Dharmasthala to Bengaluru by bus. The bus covers the ghat in one hour but train takes 2.5 Hrs.... That's where the disadvantage is for IR. As my previous screen name says "Western Ghats – The Curse of Karnataka". They are beautiful but detrimental to rail connectivity.
