Tumakuru - Arsikere and Chikkajajur - Yalavigi Doubling updates.
Tumakuru to Kardi.

Tumakuru - Gubbi is the target for this year.
After TK station, immediately new line is being laid on the right as said before in an another post.
The new line is laid for some distance, then gaps and again laid intermittently.
Some places ballast in spread with sleepers, some places nothing - just the old status of land being levelled and left. One or two places minor bridges are yet to be constructed.
Some stations new PFs are built but the line is yet to be laid.
Some stations, as I will post in subsequent blogs, the new PF is being used and the old PF's line is uprooted in total and new line is being laid, and the new is being used now.
Guess new PF lines being considered as loops doesn't need CRS.
No signs of signals.
I doubt if this year's target will be met.

Kardi - Arsikere outer.
This was last year's target.
Then this year Aug.
Now all past that, work is going on and on and on.....

At Kardi the mainline PF 2 is being totally dismantled and also the base too is being dug up. This looks like a major work. PF 1 and 3 are being used.
The news sleepers can be seen. But dont know how long all this will take.

Intermediate small stations new PF is being completed along with the building renovation/new construction.
At Tiptur both the mainline PFs 1 and 2 are being re-laid but not the base work like at Kardi.
PF 1 is being extended too
You can see new signals with some X on it to indicate not to be considered.
But they were few. That work too is left.
No idea when the whole thing will finish....... now past so many targets.
And some inspection is being carried out too.
Last pic - Old Meter gauge track for a little distance remains on a mound.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
