Why has one more daily train been announced between Bangalore and Mangalore? There is already one that operates daily (16517/16523), right?

The new train is expected to run via Arsikere-Hassan which would save some distance when compared to the train you have mentioned which runs via MYS. This would be at least an hr or two faster than the existing train and would cater mostly to end to end passengers.

Does anybody know how goods trains are scheduled in Indian Railways? I'm pretty sure there are no specific arr/dep timings, so do they get scheduled whenever there's a gap between two passenger trains? Do they ever get higher priority than passenger trains? In really busy sections like SBC-MAS where there are 18-20 trains in a 24-hr period, doesn't it become nearly impossible to squeeze in goods trains? Does anybody know if Indian Railways uses a computerized system for scheduling goods trains?

Freights do have specific timings n schedule too. The details are passed to each SM/Control tower in the route.
Only Python, Conraj n the Emergency freight are given top priority in any section.

Freights do have schedule. All freights are infact named too. Some popular freights are Conraj ( Container Rajdhani- highest priority freights), KaiRali Queen, Python, Blue Flame, Red Star, Black Gold, Green Bullet, etc. Freights get he highest priority if the consignment is important.

Thanks, everybody! I didn't know what ConRaj stood for until today, so very useful answers.

This train (16523) runs combined with 16517, not 16518, right?

Ramnagaram/Channapatna need to be added as stoppages for 16523 as well. After all, they're running as the same train till MAQ, right?

In the 'RSA - Rake Sharing' section of a train's timetable, can the site administrators please make the individual train numbers as links to that train's timetable page? It'll make it easier for the uses to get more details about those trains rather than copy-pasting each train # into the search field above.

Nice suggestion... but there will only be some 25% trains that will have a single RSA ... many others have multiple RSAs or circular RSAs which will lead to more complexity in data feeding and viewing them on the site....

However, I am flagging this #sitesuggestion to #moderator sir for his consideration...
