The fastest intrastate train in Karnataka! Covered Bangalore Hubli(Kundgol) in under 6 hours! That's an average of close to 80kmph!
Vande Bharat could run on this slot in the future.
This is truly
a crack train. Running time can be reduced by 1 hour and made to cover Bengaluru Hubballi in under 6 hours PTT.
Train departed about half an hour behind schedule from SBC. We trailed the Tumkur Shimoga DEMU for 3-4 block stations and had to halt behind it every time causing some delay enroute. At Kundgol and Hubli South, we had to halt for quite some time due to track work/platform unavailability.
Sleeper and AC coaches were empty whereas general was packed. TTEs did chase away some general passengers from the sleeper coaches. click here

Wow! That's really impressive to cover the distance between Bangalore and Hubli in under 6 hours. KSR Bengaluru - SSS Hubballi Special Fare Special is truly a high-speed train. Vande Bharat running on this slot in the future would be a great decision.
It's unfortunate that the train departed behind schedule from SBC and had to trail the Tumkur Shimoga DEMU during some parts of the journey. The delays caused at Kundgol and Hubli South were unexpected, but it appears that the train still arrived reasonably quickly.
It's interesting to hear that the sleeper and AC coaches were empty while the general coach was packed. It's good that the TTEs chased away the general passengers from the sleeper coaches. Thanks for sharing the informative video, it's really helpful!
