BENGALURU: The Bengaluru-Hassan superfast train, which was flagged off by railway minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu at Yeshwantpur Railway Station on Sunday, has been named Gomateshwara Express. Prabhu chose the name after former prime minister H D Deve Gowda suggested that since it passes through Shravanabelagoala, the Jain pilgrimage centre known for its monolith statue of Gomateshwara, on the 167-km Bengaluru-Hassan stretch, it should be named either Gomateshwara Express or Hemavathi Express. Hemavathi is the prominent river in Hassan district.

My request is, advance the departure and arrival by 10 minutes (dep 18:25, arrival 21:10). This will enable people from Bengaluru KSR also to catch this train (first by catching the Bengaluru-Chikballapur passenger upto Yeshwantpur, and then catching this train).

Now that the Bengaluru-Hassan New railway line (short cut) is complete (or nearing completion) it would be appropriate if the Bengaluru-Mangaluru train be diverted by this route. Or introduce new pair of trains via this route (i.e. via Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyur, Hassan ...). If the train is superfast, then the stoppage between Yeshwantpur to Mangaluru could be at Kunigal in between these routes. Else, it could be Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyur and Shravanabelagona (if Express).
Expecting around 3-4 trains per day between Yeshwantpur and Hassan (two express and two passenger, express train continuing further).
Now that the Bengaluru-Hindupur passenger train is run on electric locomotive, could the travel time between the two cities be shortened by atleast half an hour? Also, why not have an MEMU train instead.

Speed up doesn't have much to do with Electric or diesel locomotive, especially since this is a single line and travel time is determined by halts and priority. But yes, a MEMU or DEMU will be faster.

Please note that, though Yelahanka officially has 5 platforms, Platform No. 1 is the new one under construction. Platform No. 2, which was earlier Platform No. 1 is under renovation. Earlier Platform No. 2 is now Platform No. 3. Platform No. 4 and 5 are new ones.
Hence, currently, effectively Yelahanka has only 3 platforms. Wish that it has 5 platforms soon.
