Jul 15 2017 (00:49)   16228/Talguppa Mysuru (Via Bangalore) Express

16228 will be a unique train of IR by this month end.
1. 16228 gets a single Sleeper coach attached to it at Talaguppa and that coach gets detached at ASK and later it gets attached to 17302 after waiting for 145 minutes. And then this single coach proceeds to MYS along with 17302 and reaches MYS at 7 am.
2. Now, by
this month end, in order to less the burden of maintenance, the "GREAT" SBC division is pushing off the 16228 to MYS, so that MYS maintains this rake. And 16228 will reach MYS at 7:40 am.
So is this unique? Is there any other train where a slip portion and the main train reach the same destination by different routes at different timings??????
Also to note:
1. To lessen burden on SBC division - Hampi/Gol Gumbaz/Basava have all been extended to MYS.
2. Does MYS have pitlines to maintain 16228?
3. With this extension, SWR conveniently cancelled a Pass - 56233/34.
4. So now SBC basically maintains just Rani Chennamma and UBL Jan Shatabdi as KA trains. Recently they had sent the SMET tri-weekly to YPR as terminal and for PM.

Sir you are not aware I think but 16228 was never maintained at SBC. It used to go to MYS as pass.

Thanks. But I had seen on the PF 10 adjacent pitlines - Rani Chenamma, SBC Raj, Talaguppa train and sometimes HUP Pass train being maintained at various times of the day with lot of shunting and such.

And pitline is available? I thought MYS had 3, where 2 were used for the TN trains and 1 for other weeklies for maintenance during day.

With the conversion of 16527/16528 into LHB coaches, it will be interesting to see as to how SWR uses the erstwhile ICF coaches of this train.
Maybe they can look at exploring the option of running overnight special trains towards either Kerala/TN/AP side. Fridays is always a huge rush, so would be great if an overnight train can be considered towards CBE/ERS .
This is a far fetched imagination though !!!!! Hope SWR uses the ICF rake intelligently !

IU hublely disagree sir I want this service to be cancelled. As you are aware this rake and service is run by SWr and very few local populations use it. Also it simply stands idle for 24 hrs at vskp so that the return crowd is at convenience. At a time when swr is not serving its own KA state and says no rake, not many will be happy with SWR doing this type of sociial service.

Partially agreeing on your views, SWR not providing trains/rakes for KA. Where as this train is very useful to Coastal Andhra people, Who resides in and around Bangalore and have became localites.. who were demanding from long back.. May be Rake should shared to avoid idle time at vskp..

Yes you are right. It will not suffice. Best is to ask your state government to create more jobs and opportunities in your state only so that you dont have to take the trouble of traveling to Bangalore under the dirty swr. You are talking as if its the duty of swr to accommodate all trains carrying outsiders to bangalore under prime slots. swr is already under fire from the home state for not doing anything for their own people and people want swr to accommodate others...
