The demand to extend Mumbai CSMT–Mangaluru Junction- Mumbai CSMT Superfast Express to Subrahmanya Road Station has intensified with Shobha Karandlaje MP writing to the Railway Ministry, and various rail passengers associations lending their voice to the demand.
Ms. Karandlaje, in her letter dated February 15 to Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha noted that Kukke Shree Subrahmanya Temple in Dakshina Kannada district attracts thousands of pilgrims from across the country. However, very few long-distance trains operate to Subrahmanya Road Station, the nearest to the Kukke Temple.
Hence it is prudent to extend
the Mumbai CSMT- Mangaluru Junction- Mumbai CSMT (Train No. 12133/ 12134) to Subrahmanya Road, a distance of 90 km from Mangaluru Junction, Ms. Karandlaje said.
Meanwhile, the Kukke Shree Subrahmanya- Mangalore Commuters' Forum has petitioned Railway Minister Piyush Goyal with a similar demand. Its organiser Sudarshan Gowda noted that people of Dakshina Kannada have been demanding the extension for over a decade.
More pilgrims
The number of pilgrims visiting Kukke Shree Subrahmanya Temple has constantly been increasing, and hundreds of them from Mumbai region have to terminate their journey at Mangaluru itself because of non- availability of direct train service. He noted that Subrahmanya Road Station, which is now categorised as NSG 4 station following increased footfalls and revenue earning, needs to be developed as a terminal station under tourism scheme.
CSMT Express' extension to Subrahmanya Road would also decongest Mangaluru Junction station and the Railways has to consider extending more trains to Subrahmanya Road to offer increased connectivity to other parts of the country, Mr. Gowda said. Thus, Railways can earn more revenue too, he added.

No more trains are possible in Konkan,so extended the present trains in Konkan route to the interior Karnataka ,even though Karnataka contribute major share in Konkan.

Ha ha If SWR rakes will be Utilised then y ppl will be Demanding Extn of CR train sir? They would be pressurissing SWR to run one new train from Subramannya Road to mumbai CST. This Extn is same like Mumbai CST-GDG Extn their also SWR could have provided trian then their will be no pressure to Extend 22139/40 to GDG. SWR only want to run Long journey Intra State trains from Bengaluru,Mysuru,YPR,UBL and some trains between Mysuru/Bengaluru & UBL only so cities coming in between those services have services luckily and other places od SWR like Chitradurg,Ballari,Hospet,gadag,bagalkot,bijapur,B elagavi get Second standards in this matter. You can see the services for these places from SWR trains
