It took 20 years to complete 179 km rail line between Hassan & Bangalore via Kunigel, Shravanabelegola sanctioned by then PM H.D. Deve Gowda two decades ago !!!!!!!!!! The delay was enforced by vested interests such as the powerful Mangalore- Bangalore private bus lobby that has powerful politicians from all major ruling & opposition parties (present & past alike) and OFF-COURSE Mallya the great defaulter who ran away from India. His problem was that his Stud farm at Kunigal enroute where he breads horses for races will be split by this new line cutting through. Look how narrow minded the people are....... being a Rajyasabha member he put his gambling interests before public interests......!!!!!!!!!????????? Even now I don't think this rail route will be put for optimum use........... just because of lobbying by the powerful private bus owners........... there are about 700 private buses between towns in South Canara and Bangalore...
more...
(an equivalent of 20 trains).......... who wants to kill a goose that lay golden eggs..........!!!!!! even at the cost of low RoI of railway money........... this unholy PPP nexus here should be addressed first............Perhaps Mangalore which is the 3rd largest city in Karnataka that is not connected properly by rail with its state capital...........

I had sent an e-mail to DRM/ PGT, SR with cc to GM, SR with a request to open additional ticket counters on PF #1 of Kozhikode (Calicut / CLT) station in the morning hours by 05.30 am as there are 6 departures in the 6 am-7am slot. Now the railway authorities have promptly responded and implimented most of my suggestions. Now additonal counter will open at 5.30 and JTBS and ATVMs will open at 5 am on both PF 1 & 4 and in the vicinity of CLT a Class A-1 station in Kerala. Thank you DRM-PGT & GM-SR..... Thanks once again....

It is technically possible to have a single locomotive with duel power technology for a seamless operation of train. It is like a Diesel locomotive with a pantograph and in electrified route it draws power from overhead traction line and in non-electrified route it runs like a normal diesel locomotive.
Similar locomotives are manufactured by Bombardier (ALP-45DP) and are in use in USA and Canada and also by Talgo (Alvia S730) used by Renfe for hi-speed lines in Spain. It saves time in changing locos as well as cost of inventory.....When will we have such rolling-stocks....!!!!!

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains.

    -@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. Also,...
