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.

No, No. They should not discontinue to attach single coach at Arsikere as this help many passengers of Talaguppa, Sagara and Shimoga living at Hassan and Holenarasipura. Though the main train also goes to Mysore, my preference will be the Arsikere Hassan route as there will be less disturbance from co-passengers unlike the TLGP MYS via SBC where majority of passengers will get down at SBC at odd hours say 4.00 AM thereby disturbing the passengers bound for Mysore. Also, after SBC almost all sleeper coaches will be empty with a very few passengers from Bangalore.

Two RAC passengers in SL class for travel from Suratkal to Bangalore by train No:16524 for journey on 15th August 2017 will get their berth confirmed as I am cancelling 2 berth booked for that day under speculation that 2 3AC berth booked by me for that day will not get confirmed. It was struck in RAC 3 & 4 without change for almost 20 days. However, the same is confirmed and hence this cancellation and retaining 3 AC.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
