Close on the heels of extension of Chennai-Bengaluru Express and Hubballi-Bengaluru Vishwamanava Express to Mysuru, the Railways has extended the Kacheguda-Bengaluru Express also to Mysuru.
With the latest extension, Mysuru will have two direct trains to Hyderabad, the other being the Mysuru-Jaipur Express. As in case of the two other trains, the Kacheguda Express will also be extended up to Ashokapuram which is emerging as a second major terminal and will help reduce congestion of the main Mysuru city station.
As per the schedule, train number 12785 Kacheguda-Bengaluru Express will depart from Kacheguda
at 7.05 p.m. to reach Bengaluru at 6.25 a.m. It will depart from Bengaluru at 6.40 a.m. to reach Mysuru at 9.40 a.m. and depart for Ashokapuram at 9.50 a.m. to reach the destination at 10.05 a.m.
In the return direction, train number 12786 will depart from Ashokapuram at 2.05 p.m; reach Mysuru at 2.20 p.m; depart for Bengaluru at 2.45 p.m. to reach Bengaluru at 5.45 p.m. It will depart from Bengaluru at 6.20 p.m. and reach Kacheguda at 5.40 a.m. Consequently, the timing of train number 56237 Mysuru-Bengaluru Passenger has been changed and it will depart at 1.45 p.m. instead of 2.45 .m. Also, train number 16235 Tuticorin-Mysuru Express will arrive at 10.10 a.m. instead of 9.45 a.m.
Mysuru MP Pratap Simha said this will provide the people of Mysuru a daily train service to Hyderabad and give a fillip to both tourism and business, besides providing additional train connectivity to Bengaluru. The train will run as a super fast service between Bengaluru and Kacheguda in both directions and as an ordinary express train between Bengaluru and Ashokapuram.
The date of introduction will be announced in due course. Sources in the Railways said the authorities are keen to revamp and upgrade the Ashokapuram station to cater to the public including completing the foot over bridge and relocating the entrance.

The existing railway track on the Erode-Totiyapalaiyam section being replaced with new track. 
The Salem Railway Division has replaced the existing railway track from Erode to Totiyapalaiyam section for 428 metres using the Simplex Quick Relaying Systems (SQRS) in four hours, which is a record time in the Southern Railway.
The railways have been following the system of mechanised track relaying by using the Plasser’s Quick Relaying System (PQRS) and Track Relaying Train (TRT). Recently, SQRS track relaying system is adopted by the railways which are cost effective and time saving. The
division is in the process of replacing the existing old railway tracks in phased manner in the section and SQRS is adopted.
Under the system, an auxiliary track is laid by the side of the existing track to enable the SQRS portal crane to move. A special goods train with 17 bogies, loaded with prefabricated rail panels, is kept ready. The existing railway tracks are cut and loaded in the empty wagons that are placed in the front of the crane. The crane unloads the new panels on the track. All preparatory works were done in consultation and coordination with Signal and Telecommunications and Electrical Traction Department as their equipment are disconnected before the works and again connected to the new track.
Officials said that the system helps in relaying the tracks with less manpower and is cost effective.
